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’ 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.  

PLEASE NOTE:

THE HOUSEBOAT WILL BE RELOCATED THE END OF MARCH TO THE ZOUTKEETSGRACHT BECAUSE OF CONTRUCTION WORK ON THE BROUWERSGRACHT QUAY.

PLEASE NOTE THAT FROM 1 APRIL 2022 THE HOUSEBOAT WILL BE RELOCATED TO ANOTHER LOCATION BECAUSE OF WORK ON THE QUAY. THE LOCATION WILL BE THE ‘ZOUTKEETGRACHT’

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

    Fantastic, FANTASTIC, FANTASTIC!!!

    The communication and process before arriving were simple and informed with a friendly bias, which was Fantastic.

    The greeting was again good information, friendly and Fantastic.

    As we explored on the first evening it was brilliant to find we were in the center of a relaxed but happening area with relaxed busy bars and restaurants. With a delightfully simple walk to the center of Amsterdam to see the sights at night and the sights by day.

    The first morning we had a relaxed breakfast with delicious local bread and orange juice from the Saturday market. Reading through the folder of information it was clear someone cared about their city and the occupants' time there. This was beautiful to see.

    The accommodation is exactly what we wanted. Think relaxed upmarket hotel without all the pomp and hassle of a walk to the room. Made for a really special stay. Thank you.

    I cannot recommend it highly enough. 

    FANTASTIC!!!

    Wonderful weekend! Show 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!

    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.
