Tot 1 juni is mijn studio voor 2 personen tegen kostprijs te huur voor zorgpersoneel en andere professionals die helpen de Corona-crisis te bestrijden. Er is een privé ingang, dus contact is niet nodig. De ruimte heeft een kitchenette met wasbak, waterkoker, koffieapparaat en kleine koelkast. Vanwege regelgeving is er helaas geen kookgelegenheid. Bij de aanvraag graag vermelden voor welke instantie u werkt. Indien er budget is om overnachtingen te declareren, zou ik graag een bescheiden tarief van 30 euro/nacht in rekening brengen. Zo niet, dan kunt u tegen kostprijs verblijven (schoonmaakkosten).
Until June 1, my studio for 2 persons can be rented at cost for healthcare staff and other professionals who help to fight the Corona crisis. There is a private entrance, so no contact is needed. The space has a kitchenette with sink, kettle, coffee maker and small refrigerator. Due to regulations, there is unfortunately no cooking facilities. If there is a budget to declare overnight stays, I would like to charge a modest rate of 30 euros / night. If not, you can stay at cost (cleaning costs).
Central but tranquil, private and light home in the stern half of the former passenger vessel Sachsen-Anhalt. You'll have 60 m2 to yourself with roofed terrace overlooking the pier, galley plus bedroom, bathroom and living room.
Welcome aboard! We have a special apartment on our former passenger ship available. You can call the rear part of that looong row of 13 windows yours. There's one bedroom with a double bed. There's plenty of room for an extra single bed, double bed or a children's bed which we have available.
In total your apartment measures up to 60 m2. You don't have to share anything with us, it's all yours.
We will be in the front part of the boat, sort of like close neighbours. Just let us know if you want some inside info on the Docklands or a secret design or restaurant tip.
Here in the Eastern Docklands you'll find a combination of space and cosiness. The area was laid out at a scale for the enormous ships traveling to the Dutch East Indies, so you'll feel the most space possible in Amsterdam. Since the docklands were rebuilt as a housing area there's a café in both directions on the south facing quay within 200 meters, next to a bakery, some restaurants, interior- and bookshops, supermarkets and a park. Enough facilities for breakfast, you could even stay the day for a trip through the old harbours and modern architecture.
Public transport is available within 100m from the ship. Tram 10 will take you to Leidseplein in 15 minutes, bus 48 will take you to Central Station in 10 minutes. Or try a bike? From Schiphol Airport you'll need 20 minutes by taxi, or 45 minutes by train via Central Station and tram or bus to arrive at the Sachsen-Anhalt.
Party: If hanging out with your friends on our ship, alcohol and/or soft drugs are your main reason to visit, we advise you to book another house. On our pier you live in between children and our neighbours are sleeping right next to you.
WiFi: We have fast wireless internet.
Smoking: Smoking is allowed on the roofed terrace
Parking: spots are available but pricy. We have a cheap creative solution if you need to park for a day or more.
Sustainable energy: We make all the energy we use ourselves. A heat pump harvests energy from the outdoor temperature and warms the ship and your shower. Solar panels provide electricity. We do not use any gas or other fossil or carbon based energy sources.
Boatlife: yes you are on a boat. In windy situations you will feel some movement. Most people find this pleasurable.
Boatlife 2: Our waste disposal to the sewage system cannot take wet wipes or anything else than toilet paper.
Boatlife 3: In the morning, look where the wind is blowing from and open windows on the other side to prevent rain water from entering the ship.
Amenities: Your bed is made, towels are fresh. We have a blow dryer, iron, shampoo and a toothbrush if you might have forgotten them. The kitchenette has basics like coffee, tea ready for you to use. You only need to bring a small bag with your personal belongings.
Number of double beds: 2

How to get there
From Schiphol Airport you'll need 20 minutes by taxi, or 45 minutes by train via Central Station and tram or bus to arrive at the Sachsen-Anhalt. From Central station it's a 10 minute bus ride that stops 100 meters away from our ship.
If you arrive by car, we have a special parking solution since you will most probably not use your car in Amsterdam.

I am a freelancer writing about the newest and finest in architecture and design in magazines and on websites. My husband Renze is a pilot, although his heart goes out to a his former job, navigating the seas. Our houseboat unites our fascinations: the passenger ship Sachsen-Anhalt that used to make day trips from the german town Magdeburg is renovated into a modern house on the water.

Fantastic place to stay in Am'dam
Great attentive host, spacious place given Am'dam standards. Kitchen and bathroom are modern, clean and functional comparable to 4stars hotel standards. Living room is hip with powerful stereo system and loads of CDs to enjoy. Fantastic views of canal. We used bikes to get around and you can be downtown in 10 minutes. Highly recommend to everyone looking for more adventurous side of travel.

Wonderful and comfortable!
We enjoyed our stay immensely! The interior is both stylish and comfortable. The kitchen is well supplied and the deck is a great space for outdoor meals. The location is peaceful, but with shops and restaurants within walking distance. Ingeborg was very helpful, nice, and easy to communicate with.
