Peaceful, cozy houseboat in central Amsterdam
My houseboat offers a wonderful, quiet and peaceful place in one of the finest canals. It is very central and at the same time, you will enjoy local Amsterdam. Sitting calm on the canal, there are lots of windows that let in a lot of light.
- great location
- peaceful, warm, relaxed
- comfortable and cozy
- central amsterdam
- close to Anne Frank's house
My houseboat is very comfortable, cosy and centrally located. It's an easy walking distance to many nice places. It's just a short and nice walk to Anne Frank (10min), Rijks / Van Gogh museum (20 min), and the Jordan area (2min).
At the same time, it is a very peaceful location next to a very quiet street. I find it very calming to just watch the ducks and swans go by either from my favourite spot on the beanbag in front of the living room windows or from the little terrace. The place is well furnished and very convenient. Feel free to use my kitchen if you can resist the many lovely restaurants and breakfast places just around the corner.
It's a perfect base to explore Amsterdam or to just stay home and enjoy the view over the canal.
The houseboat fits a couple or two close friends. There is one bedroom, a well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom, a little place to store your luggage, and a terrace outside. Wifi, central heating, tv is available. Unfortunately, the houseboat is not suitable for children.
Smoking is not permitted.
How to get there
It's a 20 minutes drive from Schiphol. It's 4 stops away from Amsterdam Central train station when travelling with public transport. I'll send you a detailed description later on.

First time in Dam
My first time in Amsterdam,it's so busy and exciting but great to return to the tranquillity of the houseboat location each evening...waking in the morning to watch the variety of birds on the canal.
The houseboat is brilliant with everything required to provide a comfortable stay and a 15 minute stroll into the city centre.I would definitely recommend.

Lovely houseboat in a cozy neighbourhood
Extremely lovely houseboat in a cozy neighbourhood! Everything from check-in to communication was good! You Can Walk to the Anne Frank House and the 9 Streets in 10 minutes, and the City center in 20 minutes! A really nice and beautiful walk! Would definitely recommend you staying here!

Spotless boathouse on the perfect location
Wanne's houseboat was lovely and spotlessly clean! The location was perfect... we walked everywhere. There are some terrific restaurants nearby! Relaxing on the terrace was also a real treat! I think the ducks and swans got a bit fatter after our stay. Wanne provided us with all the information we needed and more. Checking in and out were easy and we were given a complementary bottle of wine! She responded promptly to every email we sent. Thanks for everything! We'll be back for sure!
