Like a pearl hidden in an oyster, this luxurious apartment is well hidden aboard our modern barge. As soon as you walk through your private entrance, you enter a very comfortable world of love and luxury. Although we live on the same boat, you have all the privacy you can possibly want. You do not share facilities; the whole two story floating apartment is all yours.
Just a few minutes after arriving at Central Station you arrive at our houseboat. A lovely short walk along the water to get a first impression of our beloved city. On arrival we warmly welcome you aboard 'La Perla'. On the top floor you have access to your comfortable and light living room with a double (sleeping) sofa, kitchenette and dining table. This part of the boat gives you an impression already of the feeling that we want to share with you: comfort, style and tranquility. Please remember that kids below 6 years old are not allowed.
The lower floor has more in store for you. Ever wanted to feel like what it is like to be a movie star? Well, the design stairs and Hollywood style bed will certainly help!
The bathroom is very comfortable as well, not in the least thanks to the eccentric shower and floor heating.
In the walls of this large bedroom there are charming portholes to let in the daylight and fresh air.
Outside you have access to a floating terrace to enjoy the famous Amsterdam sun. As the sun goes up on the other side of the boat, you are also welcome to sit in the private little garden in the front of the boat. This way you can sun bathe from morning till the evening. We hope that during your stay with us you will enjoy one another and the pleasures our neighborhood and our city offers. This is why we do not have televisions or radio's on board. But for the ones who can not live without (social) media, we do offer excellence fast WiFi. The only thing you have to do is bring your own mobile(smart)phone or tablet/computer with you. But of course you have not only come to our city to enjoy our houseboat apartment. Let's go into town!
You don't have to walk far to hit the first hot spots. Within walking distance you will find the Maritime Museum, Dam Square, Red Light District, Nieuwmarkt, Chinatown and a wide variety of bars and restaurants. Of course we love to share our personal favorites with you on arrival.
We hope to have given you a good impression of what we have to offer and look forward to welcome you aboard! And don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions - always glad to help!

About the area
Our neighborhood is defined by one of the oldest harbors of Amsterdam. Not only the harbor, but also the old buildings and of course the red light district are typical locations that belong to a naval hotspot.
Although the ship is located super central, you will be impressed by the tranquility that is found here. No tourist masses passing by, but a laid back and almost rural atmosphere.
We live on boats and we love boats.

Highly recommended houseboat in Amsterdam
Super location, super hosts, super stay on this houseboat in Amsterdam. I really hope it is available the next time we hit Amsterdam. Thanks for everything!

Lovely accommodation, great location.
my wife and I enjoyed a very good 5 day break at this lovely houseboat (the late summer sunshine made it all the better). From a straightforward booking process, excellent pre-stay communication and information and an available and knowledgeable onsite hostess everything was catered for.
The accommodation itself is exactly as advertised, it is well equipped, clean and fresh and very comfortable with good access to a private pontoon seating area, it’s location, literally 5 minutes from central station was perfect for ease of access to this wonderful city and all its main transport hubs, trains, metro, trams are all just there. I would stay here again without hesitation.

Amazing location, Unique, A Must
La Perla HouseBoat was a great place to stay in the city center. Centrally located, 5 min walk from the main train station, it couldn’t have been easier to get to from the airport (even with luggage the walk is easy.) Being on the water was a perfect way to embrace the canals and see all the action happen. It’s close to many bars and restaurants including the RLD.
The apartment itself was very clean, modern which isn’t something you tend to see on many of the float homes. This allowed for lots of space and modern conveniences. Would definitely suggest this place to anyone who wants a unique but not compromising stay in Amsterdam.
Only downfall was the awkwardly low bed and random bedframe, just a bit hard to get up and down if you are tall or have bad knees.

Fab Long Weekend
My partner and I recently stayed on the La Perla for a long weekend and it was a great change from a hotel room.
The boat is well maintained, it was clean and has everything you need for a lovely break.
It is located near to all the main attractions, but far enough away for peace and quiet as well.
We were greeted by Lisa on our arrival, who showed us around the boat and she was really helpful with recommendations for meals, all of which turned out to be great places with fab food.

Luxury split level houseboat apartment
We have been so lucky to stay at the La Perla Houseboat in Amsterdam. The level of luxury is just great, not to mention the location: only a few minutes walking from central station. I organized this trip for my fiancee who deserved a good surprise and I can say I could not have made a better choice. On the top level you have a great view over the water and you can even see the station , and lots of amazing ships in the harbor. On the lower level you will find a true love nest with an amazing bed, portholes and a comfortable bathroom. Although the inner city is less than a minute away, you are staying in a laid back and quiet neighborhood. Highly recommended for everyone who likes to get just a bit more out of a holiday in Amsterdam!
