Houseboat description

Located on the Amstel River you are ensured to have one of the most popular locations to spend your valuable time with your beloved one. You have the most exclusive view over the water, next to a historic bridge connecting you to the other side of the river. 

You will be staying in a studio that is part of a larger houseboat, but you are ensured to have full privacy since the place is completely separated and you have your own entrance. 

The top floor consists of a cozy sitting corner that gives view over the river and a small kitchen with a fridge. Take the stairs down and you enter the bedroom with a large high quality double bed. Here you will also find the bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. 

There is a good chance that you will fall in love with this part of Amsterdam, on the verge of the buzzing Pijp and Amsterdam East. The great amount of small and unique restaurants, bars, boutique shops and museums is overwhelming. Just choose a direction and you will find many inspiring things to do and see within a few minutes walking. But most wonderful of all is the River Amstel itself: walk along the shore and you will see many historical places that will amaze you. Not so surprising actually, since the river is the source of the city, the first place where settlements were built from where the city emerged. 

We hope to have given you the best possible impression of what we have to offer, but don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions - always glad to help!

Ark van Amstel is a very special place where you can experience silence in the middle of the city. Living on the water means connection to nature. That is what I want to share with guests. Exploring the city but feel at home an experience living on the water like a local. Feel happy on the water.

    Large windows over the Amstel

    It was a pleasure staying in the houseboat for the last part of our honeymoon. The large windows overlooking the Amstel were striking when we first entered, and we spent a number of hours sitting on the couch staring out the window, waving at passing boats and ducks.

    Just awesome

    We rented the studio for the long weekend. With the window open and a view over the Amstel river, it is just so relaxing! The bedroom is downstairs, which is very quiet, the hosts react fast, and even if there are other people on the boat, you won't even notice

    Masha was a wonderful host with great communication and a very well presented and equiped houseboat.  The location is super convenuent and Amsterdam is a great city to get around.  The place was comfortable and relaxing  and the bedroom downstairs was quite and very comfortable. The view and closeness to the water was great.  Ill be back.
