- Former freight ship
This former freight ship is the ideal place to have a pleasing family holiday. The houseboat is very well maintained and contains a lot of windows. So when you see something interesting passing by (which is not unlikely in Amsterdam), just walk past the windows and enjoy each side of the canal.
The mix of modern facilities and nostalgic elements in this former freight ship create a exclusive expierence. Have a great time at this special location with your family and friends.
Enjoy the sunrise or sunset while eating breakfast or dinner at the table while looking over the quiet lake. The large rooms create a open atmosphere which gives the boat a luxurious appearance. Unlikely the weather conditions, you will have a great holiday while staying on this boat because of the spacious inside- and outside areas. This houseboat apartement will make your stay in Amsterdam unforgettable.
The electricity is self generated with the roof solar panels and the heating comes from the "pellet heater": an eco-friendly installation which uses pellets. This makes the boat environmental friendly.

We love living on the water as well, it is peaceful and always a nice view. We hope to see you on the Island somewhere in the near future!

beautiful to be on the water a bit outside of the city, but very easy to reach downtown - 10' by tram after around 10' walks and more trams on the other side going also into the city. So a very nice spot to spend some days in Amsterdam, enjoying living in the front of a house boat in a clean and nice apartment.

Aptly named boat. Really a bright and uplifting place.
Wonderful boat, lovely hosts. An absolutely terrific space for our holiday celebration. Can't thank you enough Bob, John.

Good Experience on the boat
Sleep in a Island boat was a nice experience. The main badroom was really cozy , bright and with the view of the river outside , you can forget the tiredness of our long walking tour in Amsterdam. The place was quite, We didn't cook inside but seems equiped for. The house boat is about 20 min by tram (nr 26) and 10 min walking from the central station. Bob is a good owner, friendly, available. We definitely enjoyed our long weekend ! Thnks

Great place to stay
Great place to stay when visiting Amsterdam - 20 minutes walk and tram ride to the Central Railroad station, yet totally quiet and restful at night. We had a great time in the wheelhouse watching sunset and stars come out. Bob is a great host and made us feel very welcome. The boat is spacious and comfortable, we would definitely stay there again!
