A romantic getaway/holiday rental a lovely houseboat, situated in one of the most beautiful canals and in the most popular area in Amsterdam, the favorite Jodaan.
Houseboat Bluewater is a lovely houseboat situated on one of the most beautiful canals in Amsterdam. The area is favored by many locals because of it’s authenticity and atmosphere. It is the lovely Jordaan area with many quaint shops, nice restaurants and café's.
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 fully equipped kitchenette and a small seating area in front of the large window.
A private bathroom with double vanity and glass shower stall and a separate private toilet. There is a ledge outside the sliding window with a small bench to sit and watch the pleasure boats go by or feed the swans and ducks.
For your welcome there will be a bottle of wine and a couple of beers waiting for you in the fridge. Enjoy your stay!
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.
Look forward to welcome you aboard and share the fun of living on the water in Amsterdam!

We had lousy weather, but our stay was very nice. Swans were swimming along the studio which is clean, cosy and close to nice restaurants and cafés. Even though there was some noise at the street at night, we did not hear a thing because of the good isolation. We brought our own breakfast but there is no need to, everything can be bought in the neighborhood. We loved it!!

Wonderful weekend! Show originalShow original
Last weekend a wonderful night in this houseboat. Very kindly received, the boat looks really neat. You are very close to bustling Amsterdam, but you do not notice this at all when you are on the boat. It's also just a short walk from the central station. We had a very good weekend!

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.

Amazing Amsterdam houseboat experience
Our trip to Amsterdam was given a silver lining thanks to this wonderful houseboat apartment. The floating home is docked right in the city centre, in the area called Jordaan, and you truly will feel like a true local within one or two hours after arriving here. Watching the ducks swim by, the swans peeking into your room, the reflection of the water on the ceiling - all this was truly amazing. The apartment itself is very comfortable, clean and well attended for. Thanks for having us and hope to see you again some day - love you!

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.
