Houseboat description

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 small ‘kitchenette’ with fridge, microwave, coffeemachine teakettle but WITHOUT a sink. 
There is 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 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 terraces 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.

    Great Stay

    Houseboat Blue Water was really excellent! Quite, unique and at the heart of the nature. We spent a very good time there. I really suggest to stay there.

    Novel place to stay in Amsterdam

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the house boat on a quiet Amsterdam canal. While the outside needed some maintenance, the inside was a lovely surprise. Each evening with the sliding door open we had local ducks visiting us on the bedroom deck. A truly memorable stay.

    Quiet and calm

    About a 25 minute walk from Amsterdam city centre and 10 minutes from the nearest restaurant or cafe. Tram stop to city centre and museum district is about 5 minutes away. A nice residential area, away from the noisy crowds. Attractive interior, and host was quick to respond to questions. My only suggestion is to equip the half kitchen with at least a cutting board and functional knives, and add more towel racks/hooks in the bathroom.

    We had the most amazing stay in Danielle's houseboat, everything was perfect from when we arrived until we left! Anything you could need for your stay was provided. The houseboat is located in a lovely quiet residential area which meant lovely local restaurants. If visiting Amsterdam again I will definitely try and stay here again too. It is the real Amsterdam experience! Having boats pass your window as well as the swans and ducks was just so surreal. Could have spent my 3 days just looking out the river on to the canal. Thanks so much again Danielle!
