It is the lovely Jordaan area with many quaint shops, nice restaurants and café's. AT THE MOMENT IT IS 10 MIN WALK AWAY FROM THE JORDAAN AREA

The studio is part of a whole houseboat, totally private from the other part of the houseboat. It has beautiful large sliding windows which gives you the most amazing view across the canal at the 400 year old warehouses with their beautiful colorful shutters.

The studio has a very comfortable double bed with a ceiling fan for the warmer nights. It also has central heating. A tv with Netflix. It has a small ‘kitchenette’ with fridge, microwave, coffeemachine teakettle but WITHOUT a sink.

How to get there

Amsterdam Airport is close to the city, it will take 20 minutes by taxi. The train will run 4x an hour and takes you 15 minutes and walking from the station about 10/15 minutes to the houseboat.

About the area

The area is ‘the Jordaan’. There is a twice weekly market/farmers market just opposite and around the corner of the houseboat. Many restaurants, cafes, outdoor terrasses and shops around. Many sights close by. Supermarket and grocery stores very close. The famous Haarlemmerdijk is just 200 meters away. It is a very happy, fun loving, bustling area and yet not as busy as other parts of Amsterdam. Sometimes the canal looks and feels like a 18th century fishing village.  

PLEASE NOTE:

THE HOUSEBOAT WILL BE RELOCATED BEGINNING OF SEPTEMER 2022 UNTILL MAY 2024 TO THE ZOUTKEETSGRACHT 7K BECAUSE OF CONTRUCTION WORK ON THE BROUWERSGRACHT QUAY. THE ZOUTKEETSGRACHT IS ALSO A VERY NICE HISTORICAL LOCATION.

BECAUSE OF THIS CHANGE I HAVE LOWERED MY PRICES.
THE LOCATION IS STILL VERY NICE TO GET AROUND AND ENJOY AMSTERDAM.

    Lovely Houseboat

    Very cozy stay for 2 people, right on the canal in a peaceful area. In walk/bike range to touristic attractions. Recommend 10/10!

    Perfect

    Great location, 10 min walk from central station. Enough boat traffic to 'people watch' during the day from the balcony or the sliding glass door, and quite enough to have a romantic drink while watching the sun set over the canals. Host kept in touch through the whole process.

    Perfect!

    This houseboat is absolutely amazing. Very cosy and clean, and it has everything you need for a short stay. It's located in a very beautiful and quiet area, just a few minutes walking distance away from the central station and the center of Amsterdam. The owners/landlords are extremely nice and helpful. When we arrived, the heating did not work properly, we called Patricia and she immediately sent someone to help us. Half an hour later, everything was fixed and the houseboat warmed up really quickly. Thank you for that amazing service! :-) I absolutely recommend staying here.

    Great stay in Amsterdam

    Amsterdam is an amazing city. We stayed for 1 night at great hotel close to dam square.  We opted to spend our last 2 nights in Amsterdam onboard The Houseboat Blue Water. I’m so glad we did.  The houseboat was just as it appears in the pictures.  It’s in the historic Jordaan section of Amsterdam. Cute cafes and amazing boutiques are within walking distance.  I had the best sleep ever onboard the houseboat. Sitting out on the bench on the back patio you can watch the ever changing scenery of various boat traffic along the canal. It was definitely an experience not to be missed.
