Houseboat summary

Giving you the best houseboat experience possible and creating everlasting memories, that's our mission. We do so by showing old fashioned hospitality, serving a great European breakfast and offering free bikes to use during your stay. You have access to the great wheelhouse overlooking our harbor and the apartment in the back of the ship. Although my husband and I live aboard the same vessel, you probably won't even notice we are there during your stay. But if you have any questions, we are always there to help of course!

Houseboat description

When arriving at our quay, you will notice that we're a real houseboat community. A wide variety of ships are docked here, and one of them will be your floating home. From the jetty you step aboard our ship, a former seaworthy vessel built in Hamburg to sail the Baltic Sea, and now serving as our floating home and bed and breakfast. 

We personally welcome you aboard and share useful information and answer any question you may have. Time to discover the ship, to start with the wheelhouse, decorated with vintage furniture and a super cool captains chair. Hard to resist not to sit down here and feel what it's like to be a real captain! 

Now we descend via the stairs (this one is steep, so not suitable for everyone) to the apartment. Here you will find the double bed on your right hand side, with portholes next to it. On the front of the ship there is a single bed in case you're traveling with three, or in case you wish to sleep apart. The bathroom is very ship-like: small but useful, with a sink, shower and toilet. 

There is a compact kitchenette with a sink, refrigerator, water cooker and coffee maker. The breakfast with croissants, meats, cheese, jam, yoghurt and fresh orange juice is included in the price and served to your front door every morning. Note that we do not offer cooking facilities, but who really has the desire to cook when there are so much great restaurants and bars nearby? Just walk onto the quay and you will find several wonderful places to eat and drink within minutes walking. 

You have good access into town, making our location attractive for guests who appreciate a good and quiet night rest, as well the proximity of the city centre. By bike you reach the old city within 10 to 15 minutes, and public transport connections are great too. The Eastern part of the old city is about 15 minutes away, and the Western part takes about 30 to 40 minutes, depending on where you want to be.

Our neighborhood has just that little bit extra, at least that what we feel every day: wide panoramic views over the water, no tourist masses and a real sense of connection with other people living here. And last but not least let me say that our waters are just perfect to swim during the summer months. It's clean and fresh for sure, so don't forget to bring your swim wear when honoring us with your visit!

I hope to have given you the best possible impression, but don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions - always glad to help!

PS perhaps needless to say, but we do not allow smoking or any kind of drugs or partying aboard. We have a good relationship with our neighbors and we love to keep it that way. Thanks for understanding!

Modern architecture, old ships, wide views and the sense of freedom. That's what characterizes our neighborhood.

    Great host and great houseboat Show original

    The houseboat is very nice. You have everything you need for a great vacation. Breakfast is also very tasty and plentiful. The hosts Coriene and Casper are super nice and friendly. Coriene also took us on a boat trip which was really great.

    A perfect stay, wish we'd stayed longer.

    Our stay on Corinne's houseboat was an absolute delight. It's clean, charming and in a great location - the perfect bike ride distance into the city center or a very short ride to the Amsterdam Noord area via the free ferry. The community of houseboats there is genuine and it not very touristy so I felt like I was a real Amsterdammer! 

    The complimentary bikes were my favorite part and of course the amazing breakfasts.

    Thanks again Corinne for a wonderful stay. Tot Ziens!

    Thanks to Coriene

    We had a very pleasant stay at Coriene's, whom I thank for her warm welcome and her good practical advice. Having bicycles is really great. The captain's cabin is really well appointed and staying on a barge is an experience that I recommend. Special mention for Coriene's breakfasts, beautiful and good. See you soon. Martine.

    Charming houseboat in a quiet location Show original

    We stayed there for 2 nights in July 21: Super quiet location, very delicious and lovingly prepared breakfast, 3 good beds, bathroom tiny without a sink, but it's a very old boat from 1937, everything was clean, very nice hosts. You can easily take the two bicycles along tram 19 to the center. Too far on foot, 3 km to the train station. Everything easy by bike. Nice flair in the middle of other old boats, bar nearby, also the smallest brewery in Amsterdam krux. You can sit in the captain's cabin to eat and watch. It's a special experience that suits Amsterdam. Be careful, steep stairs. Thanks to Coriene and her husband, 5 points, gladly!
