Houseboat summary

Our ship is a Belgian cargo ship from 1958 and was used to transport goods all over Europe. Last year, she retired and we converted the ship into a houseboat. We also live ourselves on the ship, but the front part of the Pierre has been set up as a private B&B. Because of the peace and security, the eastern port area is a popular neighborhood for young families. Because of good accessibility to bus and tram, you are in downtown or central station in no time.

Houseboat description

You enter the shared hallway of the ship. On the right hand side there is a door giving way to the spacious B&B with private bathroom. Our goal was to create a warm and welcoming home for our guests, with lots of nautical details and we think we have succeeded doing so. 


The skylights and portholes let in a lot of light and can be opened on hot days, letting in a cool breeze right away. From the portholes you can see geese, ducks and swans passing by.


The high ceilings will strike you right away. This gives a real spacious feeling, very unlike many other houseboats you might have seen. The room is decorated with lots of original ship-like details such as the large steering wheel above the bed, copper clocks and lamps, and a rugged wooden door that leads to the bathroom. 


On the front deck is a bench, where guests can relax outside and enjoy life on the water and quay. The B&B is equipped with solar panels and is self-sufficient in energy.


The neighborhood is super friendly, laid back and offers amazing views over the historical harbor where we are docked. Also our area is renowned for the architecture that gives it a unique character. No tourist masses, but a real Amsterdam neighborhood where you can feel like a local for the time you will be staying with us. Be welcome!
