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.

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 gocery 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.
THE HOUSEBOAT WILL BE RELOCATED BEGINNING OF SEPTEMER 2022 UNTILL DECEMBER 2023 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
Look forward to welcome you aboard and share the fun of living on the water in Amsterdam!
PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM THE FIRST WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 2022 -DECEMBER 2023, THE HOUSEBOAT WILL BE RELOCATED TO ANOTHER LOCATION BECAUSE OF WORK ON THE QUAY. THE NEW LOCATION WILL BE THE ‘ZOUTKEETGRACHT’. THIS LOCATION IS ABOU 5/10 MIN WALK FROM THE ORIGINAL LOCATION. AND ALSO A BEAUTIFUL HISTORIC AREA.
BECAUSE OF THIS I HAVE LOWERED MY PRICES.
THE LOCATION IS ALSO PERFECT TO GET AROUND AND ENJOY AMSTERDAM.

As we were redirected to another address we expected something like a discount. The boat had to change location due to construction work at the river. Unfortunately we have not received a discount either the price for the boat went down as soon as the relocation was communicated. The entrance was not very clean and not nicely prepared as we expected it. The sleeping and bathroom itself is very nice furnished with a great style. Danielle is very communicative and helpful. She is definitely a great host.

Really handy location. Lots of nice shops, bars and restaurants close by. The houseboat has everything that you need for a comfortable stay. We were left a lovely bottle of wine, coffee etc so we didn’t have to rush to get provisions for that on our first day. Beautiful location to sit out and watch the boats and life along the canal. Great host and we would love to stay again!

Great place in Amsterdam
A wonderful place to stay on a quiet canal but close to all things Amsterdam. Danielle was a very responsive host. Would definitely stay again.

Location great! House…
Best location in the calm and friendly Jordaan district. Right on the canal with a very narrow deck to sit and cool tired feet and feed water fowl. The houseboat itself is very small and needs updating and attention. Large bathroom was a plus. Unfortunately the cleaning was subpar and our host explained the cleaner was unwell. We were booked for a week and we had to request paper towel and tea towels to do dishes (only sink is in bathroom - no counter - be creative!). The exterior is very neglected (dead plants and garbage) and we had to request directions for dealing with garbage and bottles. We made it work for us but don’t expect much. Host responded when asked for missing items but made it clear they were leaving town. Good memories but wouldn’t stay there again.

Can't beat this location!
You really can't beat the location of this houseboat! Jordaan is a vibrant, quaint and beautiful neighborhood that is a little quieter and a little more local than the busier parts of Amsterdam.
