Tot 1 juni is onze woonboot voor 4 personen tegen beschikbaar (zie kalender voor beschekibaarheid) voor zorgpersoneel en andere professionals die helpen de Corona-crisis te bestrijden. Er is een privé ingang, dus contact is niet nodig. De ruimte heeft een kitchenette met wasbak, waterkoker, koffieapparaat en kleine koelkast. Vanwege regelgeving is er helaas geen kookgelegenheid. Bij de aanvraag graag vermelden voor welke instantie u werkt. Indien er budget is om overnachtingen te declareren, zou ik graag een bescheiden tarief van 30 euro/nacht in rekening brengen. Zo niet, dan kunt u tegen kostprijs verblijven (schoonmaakkosten).
Until June 1, our houseboat for 4 persons can be rented at cost for healthcare staff and other professionals who help to fight the Corona crisis. If there is a budget to declare overnight stays, I would like to charge a modest rate of 30 euros / night. If not, you can stay at cost (cleaning costs).
We had one chance to build our dream boat. And we did. We hope you like the result, and perhaps we'll be so fortunate to welcome you aboard during our holiday and share the fun of living on our concrete Warship from 1943. With two double beds, a child bed and a cot, this is the perfect family houseboat, also for couples traveling together. Please note this is not a party boat - so no drugs or smoking allowed on board.
We recently completely renovated this WWII concrete warship and turned it into our dream boat. The 6,6 meters wide sliding doors gives an amazing view over the water, the terrace is a playground for young and old during summer and the floor heating is very comfortable in the colder season. Not to mention the brilliant Bullerjan stove, huge bath, double shower, massive curved Samsung TV, BBQ and fully equipped kitchen.

How to get there
The houseboat is easy to reach from both Amsterdam Amstel (15 minutes from Schiphol Airport) and Amsterdam Central Station (20 minutes from Schiphol Airport). Just take a tram or bus and you will be at the boat within 15 minutes. A Park & Ride parking lot is located at just 5 minutes driving away.
About the area
The Eastern Docks are the best kept secret of Amsterdam: close to the centre, but away from the noisy masses. And we have great architecture. Very kids-friendly with lots of play grounds within walking distance.
Juul and Iris are houseboaters and simply love living on the water. With their experience in mind they have built 'the perfect houseboat', to share the experience of being in touch with nature and yet enjoy the comfort of a modern life style.

Awesome industrial design
We had the privilige to stay at this wonderful and impressive houseboat in Amsterdam, the Eastern Docks. As architecture lovers we loved the awesome industrial design and the combination of the rugged concrete structure of this world war II ship and the new amenities - mostly custom built. The area is nice and quiet and the bikes take you to the city centre in 10 - 20 minutes depending where you want to go. Loved to stay here during the holiday of the owners, it's a shame that it's not available more often!

Great location, boat and atmosphere!
We had the best of times in this spacious gem! I can highly recommend staying there. Great location not far from the city center, but off the beaten track so a lot of peace and quiet for after the hussle and bussle of the center. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our kid also loved all the toys available! Fun times!

Calm & cosy at the canal
It was wonderful staying at this fantastic houseboat. The living room area with open kitchen is flooded with light coming from the large windows with a deck overlooking the canal. If you stay on the boat you'll have sun the whole day. You can tell that is has been renovated only recently, everything is modern and furnished with a lot of love and a taste for design. We enjoyed staying there as a family of four very much, it felt more like staying at a friends home than a rental place.
The location of the boat is great as it is a residential area, which makes for quiet nights. Amsterdam downtown is a short distance easily manageable by bike (with a bike rental in close walking distance). Same goes for supermarkets and a few restaurants.
Communication with Juul was smooth and easy, the whole logistics went well. A full five star recommendation!

Thanks for a lovely time at your houseboat!
Juul and his family were wonderful hosts, they gave us a brief tour of their lovely houseboat and also gave us plenty of recommendations on things to do in their area of town. The houseboat was well appointed with all the necessities, clean, and was available as expected. Thanks for a lovely time, Juul!
