Houseboat summary

A unique experience in the most vibrant area of Amsterdam! Stay in a stylish renovated houseboat and enjoy the best view in the city. Shops, restaurants, public transport, the highway and the major museums are all within a stone’s throw distance. However, waking up while overlooking the water makes you feel you’re away from the city.

 

 

Houseboat description

Our 100 year old houseboat is situated in the ‘Pijp’; Amsterdam’s heart and action. Tram, metro and train (Amstel Station) are a 5-10 minute walk. If you prefer to explore the city by bike, there are many rental places just around the corner.

The bedroom has a double bed, a desk and many windows so you can enjoy the water view. The living room has a daybed which functions as a full double bed. This way our boat is suitable for 4 adults or 2 adults + 2 kids.There’s a small but fully equipped kitchen, a good coffee machine and wireless internet. But the star attraction of the boat is our water terrace, the perfect spot for sunny days and warm evenings! Join the locals in summer for a swim and dive in the water from the terrace boat, the water is clean and refreshing. An unforgettable experience! On cold winter nights you can turn on the heater or the wood stove in the living and bedroom, it will make your winter stay just that little more romantic.

 

House rules: No smoking inside, but you’re welcome to smoke outside on the terrace boat.We ask you to not host any parties nor bring friends that are not staying as our guest.

We try to keep the Amstel water clean by using an automatic pump that brings the used water to the sewer system onshore. In addition we flush the toilet with Amstel water. You won’t really notice this, but it does needs a little extra care.

As many other house boats in Amsterdam, we have close neighbors. Our boat is the second of the shore which means that you have to make a little old-fashioned climb over our neighbor’s boat. Heavy suitcases and high heels might be inconvenient. There are two small stairs, one to the living- and one to the sleeping area. This makes our boat less suitable for toddlers and wheelchairs.

A 100 years ago people were built a little shorter than the Dutch are nowadays. Therefor the bedroom has quite a low ceiling. Please be aware if you’re taller than 1.80 meters, you’d have to bend your head a little. The Captain’s Bar (steering hut) and Living have higher ceilings.
