Houseboat summary

Only a few steps from one of Amsterdam's most authentic cafe bars, you can enjoy the real dutch lifestyle here in a truly serene environment. Jump on your classic dutch bikes provided and reach the ferry in ten minutes that takes you for free to the center. Upon arrival at this wonderfully romantic little marina, nestled between greenery and historical dutch houses, you will notice the many picnic areas and barbecue spots. Our houseboat, the Mara, lies alongside sailing boats, luxurious houseboats and restored barges, and provides a very private retreat with easy access to the center of Amsterdam by either bike, bus or ferry. Jump off your boat into the water for a lovely swim or go ice skating right next to it. Bring a canoe or kayak to enjoy the serene surroundings.
