Houseboat description

You will have your own spacious studio. The large double bed faces out on the Dyke. Wake up by the sounds of ducks, bicycle bells or a sloop passing by. Enjoy your breakfast or cup of coffee on the cozy terrace, while overlooking the canal.

After an exciting and busy day in the city, this houseboat is the perfect place to enjoy your afternoon or the late hours in the evening. The relaxing atmosphere of the boat and the magnificent location makes this place a perfect spot. Shut down the metropolis around you and enjoy eachothers compagny. But if you're planning to discover all the breathtaking spots of the city, rent a bike for 5 euros a day. Brave the biking trails and expierence the unique ambiance of the city!

The large window gives the studio a spacious feeling. Cosy up in the room during a typical Dutch autumn- or winter day, or open them in the summer and make the most of a hot day in the city.

Rob lives on the boat (in separated accommodation). Feel free to ask him any questions.

    Amazing stay in Amsterdam!

    Rob's houseboat is perfect!  We had such a great stay.  The location is easily reached from Schipol Airport and on a really nice canal in a quiet location, and just down the road from the awesome windmill brewery!  The surrounding area is great to explore and near markets and shops.  We walked to central Amsterdam a variety of ways within 20 to 30 mins.

    Rob and Paul were flexible with check-in, and were really responsive with communication, and even left a bottle of wine and coffee for us which was great.  

    The boathouse was really comfortable and has a great deck area for breakfast in the morning on the water: really relaxing atmosphere!

    There are two free bikes available for use to explore the canals as well which was great.  

    We'll definitely stay again the next time we are in Amsterdam!

    Super break on an Amsterdam house boat

    Thank you for a super break in your houseboat and especially for the gift to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. What a nice surprise. We went to the In Stock restaurant that you recommended - love the recycling concept and the food was excellent. Many, many thanks to such lovely hosts.

    Best bnb experience ever!

    Paul and Rob’s place is cozy and clean. Nicely decorated. Paul prepared some Christmas special pastry for us, very thoughtful of him. He also gave us tips to travel like a local. Their place is only 15-20 mins away from the main attractions. Bus stop is just 3 minutes away. The geese, birds and swans greeted us every morning. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who are travelling to Amsterdam.
