Houseboat summary

Houseboat description

Welcome aboard! We have a special apartment on our former passenger ship available. You can call the rear 6 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 100 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 kitchen has basics like coffee, tea, olive oil and herbs ready for you to use. You only need to bring a small bag with your personal belongings.
