Houseboat summary

The Spera II is an elegant lady, built as a cement transportation ship in 1954 and now the home of your loving hosts. They have created a charming apartment under the wheelhouse, designed to give you the best time possible. The location is quite unique: although you can reach the city centre in about 15 minutes, you will be amazed by the tranquility and the wide views all around you. Suitable for 2 to 4 guests. On request we provide breakfast and bikes.

Houseboat description

The houseboat apartment offers surprisingly much space, around 35 sqm in total. The owner lives in the front of the ship, but you are ensured to have all the privacy you can possibly ask for since you have a private entrance. 

Via the entrance in the wheelhouse (shared space) you enter the former captains' house. This area is formed in the shpe of the boat and the hight is limited to 190 cm (consider this when you are the captains' house you will find the living room  with a tv and small stereo set, a sofa bed (120 x 200 cm) and the open kitchen. The fully equiped kitchen is designed for your convenience and offers a dishwasher, stove and a microwave-oven combination. 

Continue and you enter the bedroom with a double bed (130 x 200 cm) and the second bedroom with a single bed (90 x 200 cm).

In the bathroom you will find a small bath (quite exceptional on a houseboat) and a shower. All the water is heated by a modern heater so the whole family can shower without hot water running out. 

The whole boat has good free wifi connection.

An absolute highlight is the great sundeck on top of the ridge, a great place to watch the ships go by en enjoy the panoramic views over the water. And last but not least: know that the ship is located in one of the most famous parts of Amsterdam when it comes to architecture. These former dockes were used to dock steam ships in the 19th century. Nowadays the steam ships and the docks have disappeard, but the nautical atmosphere s still there. Just like the many references to these long-gone days in the great bars and restaurants you will find here. And many great new buildings attract architecturalists from all all over the world. 

On request bikes and breakfast can be arranged for you. Bus 48 takes you into the city centre in about 10 minutes. 

And one more thing for those who like to swim: know that this area offers great, fresh water during the summer. Just 100 meters away is a large jetty where you can swim safely and enjoy the sun.
