Houseboat summary

We love to share this private room with a comfortable double bed on our amazing houseboat, located close to the famous Jordaan Areal and Westerpark. If required you can use a second bedroom for a third guest. The large living room and modern kitchen are shared spaces.

Houseboat description

The room is located on our modern and newly built houseboat, just minutes away from the famous Jordaan area. The room has a comfortable double bed and an en suite bathroom with comfortable shower, sink and toilet. 

Apart from your private space, you can use our living room with floor heating and fireplace, and our spacious modern kitchen. And last but not least: you can sit back and relax at our floating terrace and enjoy the water life passing by. The houseboat is built under architecture, resulting in a very light, bright and spacious floating villa. The living room is also very comfortable with a fireplace, comfortable couch and large windows giving view over the water. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything that a chef could ask for. 

We also offer a second and third bedroom that can be rented, making this place very suitable for over 2 persons. If you are staying with three persons (or if you are traveling with two but you both want a separate bed and bedroom) you have access to a second bedroom with a twin bed of 140 x 200 cm. 
 

Our houseboat is located at a few minutes biking of the world famous Jordaan Area - a charming part of Amsterdam with great restaurants, bars, independent shops and boutiques. Here you will also find the 'Negen Straatjes' (the Nine Little Streets) with it's many small shops and restaurants. And what about the Haarlemmerdijk - rewarded as the Nicest Shopping Street in the Netherlands in 2011 - just 10 minutes walking away. No better place to just stroll around en enjoy the city at it's best. 
 

This part of Amsterdam also offers lots of culture. The Anne Frank House is located within walking distance, as well as the Westertoren (Wester Tower), Amsterdam Historic Museum, Dam Square, the Royal Palace and Central Station. 
 

You can easily reach us by car and public transport, and once you're checked in there is no better way of transport then the good old bicycle. We're glad to say that we have good bike rentals available. 

We hope to have given you the best possible impression of our houseboat, but don't hesitate to contact us when you have any questions. Look forward to welcome you aboard!

Feel free to ask if you have any questions - we're there to help you and love to welcome you aboard!

How to get there

From the airport you can take a train to central station (20 min). From there you can either walk (20 minutes), take a cab (approximately € 13) or take bus 21 (less than 10 minutes). 

How to take bus 21? When you arrive at Central Station, exit on the city side (main Exit). Take bus nr 21 and get off after 5 minutes at the stop “Kostverlorenkade". At a little square in front of a gym. Take the road left of this square and then walk towards the end until you see houseboats ( 300m) ten take a left to number 22 You are in front of our houseboat! 

When you decide to come by car. You can park your car almost always near the houseboat. However, Amsterdam is not very “car friendly" as the city charges rather high rates for parking. Alternatively, go to Park and Ride Amsterdam for cheaper parking options. The Park and Ride that is closest to us, is the “P+R Sloterdijk". The cost for Park and Ride is € 8 per day. They offer return tickets for public transport free of charge.

About the area

We live on the verge of the Jordaan area, a very lively and inspiring part of the city. Yet, you are ensured to have a great night rest since we're far away enough from tourist masses. So it is pretty much the best of both worlds.

    Great stay

    Beautiful houseboat about a 25min from the city, or a short bus ride. Lovely spot with very nice hosts! Room & bathroom was spotless. The hosts made us feel very welcome and at home. Would highly recommend staying here!

    What a great find!

    Our visit to Amsterdam got a special dimension thanks to the wonderful houseboat of Nicole. Staying here was a real treat. We truly enjoyed the great architecture, clean and well decorated room and the lovely area. Although it is easy to get to cool places like the Jordaan Area and the Westerpark, it is a very nice, safe and quiet area. Thanks for having us and hopefully we'll meet again!

    review

    the house boat was lovely and beautifully decorated.

    we were looking forward to our stay there with our family. we could see the potential of all the great things it had to offer, wonderful outside porch on the canal. 

    we were surprised to find out that we were sharing the house with another guest - it wasn't clearly stated at the website that such a situation was possible and it felt uncomfortable.

    there was also a strong smell from the kitchen which made it difficult for us to make the best time from our stay

    Nicole was great, offered her help when we forgot some of our stuff at her place and was very helpful.

    Stay like at your own Home. It was awesome!

    From the first Moment we felt like Home. We met Nicole at the houseboat. A Very nice person with a beautiful smile and a big big heart as well as Sander. Very trustful, like a family member from the first Moment! We were many times in Amsterdam but that was a very nice experience. We hope so much to see you again and hope you will always be the way you are! 

    Best wishes for you and Sander!
