PRIVATE SUNNY ROOM IN HOUSEBOAT WITH AMAZING VIEW ON THE WATER AND QUIET SURROUNDINGS

- Free ferries to the city centre
- Water front view from your bedroom

- Close to the NDSM Wharf
This bedroom is located on the ground floor of our houseboat with fantastic views over the water.
We live in the city, but also close to the wide open fields that the Netherlands are famous for.
Within walking distance from the NDSM WHARF, good restaurants, a supermarket and just 15 minutes to city center by free Ferry.
You can also come with your own boat.
And in summertime you can swim around the house.
We have two cats Nina and Nena and they love the attention.
A place in the city of Amsterdam, yet you will be able to enjoy the great outdoor life. That's what our houseboat apartment has to offer. It is located in 'hot and happening' Amsterdam North, close to the buzz of the NDSM Wharf with lots of cultural activities and great places to eat.
The room has full water front view - you will love the water views, with ducks, swans and geese swimming by. Can't think of a better way to wake up with the sun shining bright in your room.
During the summer you can sunbathe in our garden, or from the water side terrace. A perfect place to go swimming and cool off during hot summer days.
But also during the rest of the year it's just lovely to be on and around the water. Every day is different, and we feel like this is a very intense and pure way to experience nature and the changing seasons.
How to get there
Arriving by train: From Central Station,take the Free ferry to the NDSM Wharf. From there it's a 10 min walk to our house.
If you come by car, we have free parking space nearby.

A fantastic placeWe loved the place! Both the place itself and the location were beautiful. Gerard and Joke were really friendly, Gerard took us to see the canals on his boat (the cruise we had booked in advance was somewhat a disappointment) and showed us around. There was also a plenty of wine and beer in the fridge, so that we couldn't get thirsty ;) We recommend the place and would definitely go again!

Everything was perfect Show originalShow original
A very warm welcome that put us at ease from the start despite our delay following our error in the journey. A good size bedroom in very good condition. An ultra-modern and well-equipped bathroom and toilet. Finally, a shared kitchen and living room which are very functional. Gérard and Joke know how to be both discreet when needed and very present to offer us maximum service. We will come back ...
Great stay on a great houseboat
Very warm welcome from both Joke and Gerard. I felt right at home from the start.

I will summarize this experience with a ranking, and I put it by far N ° 1 in my top 100 (I travel a lot for my work and personally too ...) I will return to them as soon as possible, so a tip, if you have want to have the best stay of your life in Amsterdam, do not hesitate, Joke and Gerard's is the place to go!
Ps: it's also the first time I've taken the time to leave a comment (I know it's not very nice for others and for the BnB "spirit" in general ...), you will understand why! ”

Great time Show originalShow original
Great hosts, super clean, nice houseboat, quiet but central location. I'm not really an Airbnb friend because of the closeness to strangers, but while they are all like Joke and Gerard, I can only travel like that ... ... Thanks for the great time with you
