Houseboat summary

This houseboat will definitely more feel like a home than a holiday rental. It is personal, it is edgy, warm and fantastically located. It is the perfect getaway for couples who want to be close to the buzz of the city centre, yet enjoy a quiet night away from the tourist masses. Close to the Jordaan area and the tram takes you to the museum square in just a few minutes. 

Houseboat description

When waking up here you will most likely be welcomed by some elegant swans swimming by. After a good night rest in the high quality double bed it is time for another inspiring day in town, but first it is time for a nice breakfast at the large table in the open kitchen with a great view over the canal. Several coffee places and an amazing croissanterie can be found within minutes walking, as well as some of the best restaurants in town. 

But first something more about the houseboat itself. This 50 sqm barge has large windows and is best to be compared with a well equipped apartment. The owner loves the tranquility and spaciousness of the space. The central heating ensures a comfortable temperature all year round, even on the coldest winter nights. The interior design is modern and contemporary, a perfect match for both singles and couples who appreciate a home away from home. 

This floating house offers everything you may expect from a modern home: high speed internet, a large rain shower, fully equipped kitchen with Nespresso machine and dishwasher, a washer and dryer and a large lounge area. Here you can relax after a day in town and enjoy the water life passing by. We offer flatscreens that can be connected to your own portable devices (so no cable tv). Be assured that the houseboat is very stable and hardly moves, even with strong winds. 

About the location: the boat is located on the verge of the Jordaan area and within close range of great public transport connections to all corners of the city. The Anne Frank House is about 10 minutes walking distance, the Museum Square (Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum, Museum of Contemporary Art) is easy to reach by tram or a nice 15 - 20 minute walk. A few other cool things to do and see within walking distance: the Ten Katemarkt (daily market with fresh fish, vegetables etc), Food Hallen (food halls), Westerpark and lots of great restaurants and bars.

Overall: everything you need for an inspiring, relaxing, energizing stay in Amsterdam!
