The Amsterdam Swan
Houseboat in the center of Amsterdam, close to the Jordaan area and Central Station

- Floating private terrace
- Located wonderfully, next to the Jordaan

Live the houseboat life aboard our floating home, located in the city centre between Central Station and the Jordaan Area. You have access to a charming water front terrace, overlooking the wide canal. The houseboat is super comfortable and offers everything you would expect in a modern apartment, but with the benefits of living on the water.
The atmosphere on our canal - we live in a real houseboat community - is laid back and friendly. With a great market around the corner, and many restaurants and bars within a minute walking, you are assure to eat and drink like a king. This is the perfect place for couples who want to experience Amsterdam at it's best: on the water!
The buzzing Jordaan area starts just on the other side of the water, and many great points of interest are found really close. You can walk to the Anne Frank House, Dam Square and the wonderful Westerpark.
In the spacious and light living room there is a comfortable couch and a large smart TV.
The houseboat is equipped with a simple but convenient open kitchen with microwave, oven, dishwasher and a gas stove. The large dining table is situated in front of the water side window, making it a great place to eat while watching the water life go by.
The bathroom has both a bath and a separate shower, as well as a sink and toilet.
In the bedroom we provide a large and comfortable king size double bed.
If you like 'sport and spa', you have found the perfect spot: across the water you will find a gym with a squash court and sauna.
And last but not least we are happy to say that we have a floating terrace, overlooking the water. Here you can watch the birds and boats go by - this is the moment when you know you made the right choice to spend your houseboat holiday with us!

How to get there
A short walk of around 8 - 10 minutes from Central Station takes you to the houseboat. Easy enough. We will provide the exact route after the booking has been confirmed.
About the area
The houseboat is located in a quiet area with lots of families living on houseboat. So you will be truly part of the local houseboat community. On one side of the water the buzzing Jordaan area starts, and on the back side of our street you will see the wide open water of the IJ-river. Just a wonderful area to stroll around and enjoy yourself watching the ships pass by.
I travel a lot myself, that's why you can stay on my boat, where I live on. I love the idea that somebody else can enjoy being on my boat. I love people who travel. You are very welcome!!

Such a wonderful time aboard this Amsterdam houseboat!
We had such a wonderful time on Lilian’s house boat. It is in the perfect location and we couldn’t have had a lovelier time. We would definitely return!

Great way to feel like a local - unique houseboat experience
This is a great way to feel like a local. The boat watching from the deck was so enjoyable after a day of site seeing. The boat is a unique experience with everything you need. A step up from glamping. The local cheese shop and grocery store were quite interesting to visit. I think it’s a nice part of the city to stay in. It’s close to Amsterdam Centraal and near to the city center but far enough away for peace and quiet at night. There is also a good restaurant a half a block away.
