Houseboat summary

Be welcome aboard our super cozy cruiser, well equipped for an unforgettable stay on the wonderful Amstel River. The location is super central and you will be staying right in the heart of the city. There is a small but useful kitchen to prepare breakfast or a simple meal. The boat - not huge but surprisingly spacious - is docked along our Houseboat and offers waterfront view on three sides. The Waterloo Square, Rembrandt Square, Central Station and many more points of interest are all within walking distance.

Houseboat description

Staying on our boat will surely add a lot to your holiday. You will see swans, ducks and ships pass by while you sit back and relax, enjoying the scene. The interior of the place is warm and cozy, very authentic and 'nautical'. And the view over the water, the awesome bridge and the historic buildings on the other side of the river are absolutely one of a kind. Simply not comparable to any hotel room you have ever stayed for sure. 

There is one cozy bedroom with a double bed. As long as you are less than 2 m tall (6,5 ft), the beds are large enough for you for sure. Furthermore there is a cozy living area with tv, a simple but convenient toilet and bathroom with shower. The boat is centrally heated and there is also an electric heater so you are assured to be comfortably warm, even on the coldest winter nights. And last but not least: of course you have access to the wheelhouse, the place to feel like a real captain!

Your host will welcome you aboard and show you around so you have the most convenient start of your holiday possible. As soon as you step of the boat, you will find cool things to do literally in every direction you choose to walk. Go North and you will find yourself on the Waterloo Square, searching for cool and rare finds. Go South and feel the buzz on the Rembrandt Square. Go West and visit the flower market, Damrak and the Jordaan. Go East and walk along the wonderful Amstel river to find the majestic Hermitage, Amstel Hotel, Skinny Bridge and enjoy the many wonderful floating homes of your 'fellow houseboaters'!

I'm there to answer any question you may have about either the boat (it's not a regular apartment or hotel room after al) and the city!

How to get there

From Central Station it is just a 5 minute ride by metro to get to the metro station around the corner of the houseboat. Super easy!

About the area

The houseboat is docked on a super central location, on the beginning of the Amstel: the river that gave Amsterdam its name. From the boat you will enjoy the boats, swans and ducks passing by. Within a few minutes walking there are more restaurants and bars than you can possibly visit during your stay. There are many cool points of interest nearby, from the Rembrandt and Waterloo Square to the Skinny Bridge, Hermitage, Flower Market, Damrak etc etc. 

The Metro Station is 1 minute walking away, so it's really easy to discover the rest of the city from your houseboat.

    Amazing boat on the Amstel river

    Daan's boat was absolutely brilliant. The perfect place to stay if you're visiting Amsterdam, after a long day of sight seeing the boat was the perfect setting to watch the river and the life around you. Good facilities and a friendly host in a brilliant location. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay again.

    Lovely people. Great location. Boat is warm and made the trip. However, I would liked to have seen better blankets and it could use a deep clean. I would re-visit.

    This was one of the most wonderful stays I’ve ever had! We booked this boat for Amsterdam pride and it helped us incredibly in having a good time. The location is perfect, the boat is really cute and gave a surprising amount of sleeping space, the view was great to have drinks on the deck at night. Daan came over to chat a few times and was an amazing host, making us feel right at home.

    The boat was very comfortable with everything we needed. Daan allowed to check in early and was very helpful. Great location, with lots to see on the canal but also quiet at night.
