We feel privileged to live on one of the most photographed locations on the planet, yet enjoy the peaceful tranquility that comes with living on the water. And we love to share this very inspiring experience with you by renting out a lovely cozy studio in the front part of our houseboat in Amsterdam, right next to the famous Skinny Bridge and with a charming petite roof terrace. Perfect for couples who want to create everlasting memories!
Our houseboat is a traditional freight ship, built in 1931 and now transformed into a most charming floating home. The studio is located in the front of the ship and has a private entrance, ensuring all the privacy you want.
The place, not huge but charming for sure, has a romantic bedroom with a large comfortable double bed. From here you can see the Skinny Bridge in all her beauty from your bed through the porthole, putting a smile on your face for sure.
Next to the bedroom you will find the rain shower, toilet, the sink (under a roof window) and a small coffee bar to sit back and relax for breakfast and a fresh Nespresso coffee.
Not only is our location on the Amstel (the river that our city is named after) one of the most photogenic locations in town, it is also right in the middle of countless great things to do. At just a stone's throw distance there are dozens of bars, restaurants and boutique shops. And not to forget various great museums (Hermitage, The Rembrand House, Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum etc), the Artis city zoo and so much more places of interest. And when sitting on the terrace, you will really enjoy the city and water life passing by. You will be staying in the middle of it all!
When renovating our houseboat studio in 2017, we kept in mind that in the middle of of the city of Amsterdam it is important to have a quiet hide-out. We offer a Nespresso machine, water boiler and a fridge for your convenience, but note that there is no kitchen. However, with so much restaurants and bars around, there really is no need to cook yourself. We are sure you have so much better things to do during your stay!
Note that we live on the same ship, but have an own entrance. However, we will therefore be around most of the time to help or answer if you might have any question.
A fun fact is our boat is self-supporting thanks to solar panels and a pellet heater to heat water and our central heating (the boat is comfortably warm all through the year, even on the coldest days). Being self-supporting we can sail the ship and still use the facilities. Be assured that we will not sail the ship during your stay, so it will always be there when you get back from another great day in town ;-)
Look forward to welcome you aboard so much!

One comfortable week on the boat
We spent almost a whole week in Amsterdam and enjoyed the stay on the boat very much. When we arrived at the boat, it rained heavily and Jorden was already waiting for us to provide us with umbrellas if we didn't have any and we could leave our luggage on board, although the rooms were not yet ready for our visit. Thank you again. We had a bedroom and a second room with a wall table, which we used for breakfast and coffee drinking, additionally a small cabin (I hope this is the right word) for a shower and a toilet. We didn't need more for this week, we were able to accommodate our luggage well. Everything was clean and warm. The tips and information from Jorden were very helpful. The location is also great to start to explore Amsterdam by public transport or by bike. All in all, it was a great place to stay.

Living as locals do
To live on the Amstel in the middle of everything you could experience in Amsterdam was a treat... A short walk in any direction had you feel you had Amsterdam at your fingertips. Jorden and Lieza were the perfect hosts; extremely helpful. Would recommend this adventure to anyone wanting to live as the locals live on the Amstel.

Perfect stay to enjoy Amsterdam
We have had a very good time in Amsterdam on this houseboat. This tiny studio with its charming atmosphere made us feel home. The boat is located at the beautiful skinny bridge which is a great starting point to explore the city. Accommodating hosts. It was all great.
