Houseboat summary

This grand lady still breathes the atmosphere of those wonderful long gone days when she used to work as a freight ship. The many nautical details, such as the beams and the wheel house definitely contribute to this. Combined with the wonderful location right next to the famous Skinny Bridge, you are assured to have a unique and unforgettable houseboat experience in Amsterdam city centre.

Houseboat description

The Rustic City Centre Houseboat offers a great view over the water both from the wheelhouse and the terrace on top of the deck next to the Skinny Bridge. From here you can watch the swans, ducks and geese swim by while you sit back and relax with your beloved ones, making plans for another great day in town. 

The large living room with open kitchen offers a light dining area thanks to the windows in the ceiling. In the kitchen you will find all the amenities for preparing breakfast and diner, as well as a retro fridge, microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker and water cooker.  The whole boat is heated with central heating, so be assured that the place is comfortably warm even on the coldest winter days.

A warm atmosphere is created with the wooden floor and heavy beams that carry the ships's roof. The retro furniture definitely contributes to this feeling.

The ship has two separate bedrooms with large comfortable double beds, but if required the sleeping couch in the bedroom can be used as well. The master bedroom is connected to the living room and kitchen. 

The second bedroom, also equipped with a large comfortable double bed, is located on the other side of the ship. This room has a private toilet and a retro bath tub. Note that this room can only be entered from the outside of the ship. Therefore the second bedroom offers lots of privacy, yet for small children it is less suitable. You can use the sleeping couch in the bedroom however if you want your kids to sleep within close distance. 

And what about the location? Well, it does not get more downtown than this! As soon as you set foot on the street there are many things to see and do. Of course there is the Skinny Bridge, probably the most photographed bridge in Amsterdam. At just minutes walking distance you will find the Hermitage, Waterloo Square and numerous wonderful restaurants, bars and boutique shops. Want to see the rest of town? Just get on the tram that is located around the corner and within  15 minutes you can reach the Museum Square, Central Station, Artis Zoo and the famous Vondelpark. 

Look forward to welcome you aboard!
