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 30th Birthday

    I brought my partner to Amsterdam as a 30th birthday surprise! Robert and Paul were very accommodating! On our arrival Paul greeted us and gave us the load down on the great spots of Amsterdam, a warm welcome for us! Every night we looked forward to returning to the comfort of the boathouse! Hope we can return again soon.

    Beautiful house boat close to the center

    We stayed for three days in Rob's house boat and it was wonderful! Very clean and beautifully decorated with a little porch where you can sit and enjoy your coffee in the morning. It's reasonably close to the city center, bus and tram stations to get there and to the main train station are close by and easily reached by foot. Also just down the road are very nice cafés under a typical dutch windmill where you can eat and drink good beers. Staying in a house boat is the best way to experience Amsterdam! Rob is also a very nice and helpful host.

    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.
