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.

Esther B - Germany
My boyfriend and me really enjoyed our 5 nights stay at this cute houseboat and felt very comfortable. It was clean and well stocked. The Check in was easy and the communication with Nina and Lisa was friendly and uncomplicated. The position of the boat is very central - 5 minutes walk to the train station and about 10 minutes walk to the Nieuwmarkt. Great location if you want to explore Amsterdam by feet or tram. Thanks for having us!

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!

La Perla in Amsterdam
Overall we enjoyed our 4 day stay on the houseboat. It was incredibly easy to get to, about a 10 minute walk from Central Station. The cobblestones along the east dock are a bit rough on luggage wheels, but we just threw our luggage up onto the sidewalk for the return journey. Facilities were good onboard, very comfortable. My only suggestion would be to get a microwave oven. Close to everything in central Amsterdam, we walked at least 10 km a day! We did encounter a bit of noise from the adjoining suite(s), and it appeared like the cleaning staff/neighbours liked to stand outside our unit and talk. But this was only on a couple of occasions.
We would stay here again.

Everything was perfect. 2 things could have been better: room not ready on time Friday. And the floating terrace on which there was a BBQ on Saturday with less intimity (and making off for toilets ...)

Such an amazing place
The only downside I can tell is that you can stay here forever. What a great place the owners have made here, making us feeling very welcome and at home. The place has two levels, both very special. On the top level there is lots of light and a superb view over the harbor and below you have a very unique bedroom and bathroom. The location is indeed very central, just as advertised - and actually even better. We loved to have a drink in the super nice bar called Pollux across the street, and lots of other cool places are all within walking distance. Thanks for having us and thumbs up for your great service!
With love from Paris - Jean-Marc
