River View Houseboat Apartment
Charming apartment on a traditional ship, right in the city centre
- Cozy and characteristic houseboat apartment
- Amazing location in Amsterdam city centre
- Wheelhouse with panoramic views
- Sleeps four in comfortable double beds
- Excellent host
Be the captain on your next houseboat holiday in Amsterdam. Enjoy the panoramic views from the wheelhouse of this traditional, yet renovated houseboat apartment. Sleeps four and offers a great terrace right in the city centre.
The interior of the boat is cozy and authentic, with wooden painted walls that follow the shape of the ship. This contributes to the nautical feeling aboard. However, the most ship-like experience you will get in the wheelhouse, that offers amazing panoramic views over the Amstel river. This is an inspiring place to sit back, relax and make new plans for a brand new day in town while ships, ducks and swans swim by.
Inside you will find one master bedroom with a large double bed. This room has an authentic roof and a window that contributes to the light and bright atmosphere. The central heating ensures a comfortable temperature all year round.
A second large and super comfortable double bed is located in the hull of the ship. This is without a double not the highest sleeping area around, but it has lots of character for sure and actually a lot of people love sleeping here. You will sleep like the sailors that lived on this ship almost a century ago. A unique and authentic experience!
Next to the bed you will find a cozy dining area with four chairs and three charming cabinets. The open kitchen enables you to prepare a meal for those nights that you want to have a laid back night at home. Don't fancy cooking during your stay? Not the least of a problem! You will find loads of great bars and restaurants within walking distance.
Previous guests really appreciate the unique location and the atmosphere this houseboat has to offer. Since the apartment is located on a houseboat, the space is kind of limited and the stair is quite steep, but this is largely compensated by the amazing views, the charming terrace and the fact that so many points of interest are found within a stone's throw distance.
Number of double beds: 2
Heating / Cooling
Walking / Hiking

Look forward to welcome you aboard on my houseboat!

Best and most unique location in Amsterdam
Among the absolute best and most unique locations to stay in Amsterdam, a city I have spent about 40+ nights so far over numerous trips, and this accommodation was favorite. Not only close and convenient to anywhere you want to be, but just sitting on the top of the boat relaxing and watching the endless Amstel river scenes unfold is an experience by itself. This is the second Amsterdam houseboat I have stayed in, and I will say this one is typical for amenities but way on top for the location. Tips for you: know what to expect. It is tight quarters, not like a flat or hotel room, and you have to climb down into the berth just like the families that lived on these boats did. Everything is miniature expect the beds - they were full size and super comfortable slept great! We had myself, my wife, and 13 year old daughter. We were very comfortable. I would say max 4 people to have a good time; couple with 2 kids or maybe 2 couples. The hosts genuinely care about a positive experience, communicate constantly and quickly, no problems at all. No hesitation on 5 stars, great time- again just set your expectations on the size and entry/exit and if you're good with that you will love it!

Fantastic location and view.
We enjoyed the location of the boat, with a very bright and beautiful view, in the center of the city thus very convenient for visiting the town, and we liked its decoration. The steering wheel room is a big plus with its large view on the Amstel.
We were kindly welcome by Kapitein Rob and once Arthur fixed the rain dropping in the boat and the electricity the next evening, and we were explained how the heating system worked, we felt more at ease to enjoy the remaining of our short stay.
For your information, as far as comfort is concerned, a plus would be a little table/type of place in the steeringwheel room to put things on it, as we prefered to eat there instead of downstairs where we had no view. Also, we did not cook as it seemed to us hazardous to do so as there is very few space between the stove and the roof above.
Best regards and thank you.

Fantastic houseboat holiday rental!
We stayed here for three nights and really enjoyed the houseboat with its charming interior. Not huge, but just perfect for a short stay right in the middle of town. The city is basically your backyard, and you are privileged to enjoy the show from the wheelhouse or terrace. Will be back for sure!

Siamo stati benissimo! Ho fatto una sorpresa ai miei nipoti e ne sono rimasti entustiasti!
L' unica cosa che posso dire è che forse è il caso di dire che questa barca non è proprio per tutti....la scaletta di accesso al piano inferiore è molto ripida!
Per il resto....bellissimo!!!!
Consiglio a tutti una vacanza in una houseboat!
