Houseboat summary

The unique thing about this newly renovated ship is that she can accommodate larger groups - up to 8 guests - very close to the city centre. The Great Wide Open Houseboat is docked along the quay of a large city harbor with amazing architecture. So you are sure to have wonderful panoramic views from the wheelhouse. Minutes away from the busy inner city, yet nice and quiet at night. The perfect starting point for exploring Amsterdam!

Note: this boat can only be rented for a maximum of 5 days!

Houseboat description

We are proud to share this houseboat with you, perfectly suitable to host 4 - 8 guests comfortably. When renovating this ship we kept in mind that we wanted to offer a true -from-home. So although you are staying at a real big freight ship, once used to transport goods all through Europe, you will enjoy all the amenities of a modern apartment. We specifically welcome friends and (larger) families because it can be a nuisance to find a proper houseboat for over 4 guests. 

All through the boat we offer a pleasant combination of comfort and coziness. Natural light enters the ship via the roof windows and charming portholes. We have used lots of natural materials, such as wood for the floors and large kitchen table to create a warm and homely atmosphere. The open kitchen is fully equipped and enables you to prepare a wonderful meal just like at home. And for those with cold feet: no worries whatsoever, we offer comfortable modern central heating all through the houseboat. 

Next to the open kitchen there is a comfortable lounge corner with a large couch, flatscreen tv and a fauteuil to relax when coming home after a nice day in town.

There are three bedrooms, sleeping 6 persons in total (one bedroom with 3 single beds, one bedroom with a double bed and one bedroom with one single bed). In the living room we offer a comfortable sleeping couch that can be used for a possible 7th and/or 8th guest. 

The bathroom offers a shower and sink. The toilet is separated. 

Now something more about the area. This has been transformed from an industrial harbor into a modern and versatile neighborhood. Not only the architecture is truly striking, combining old warehouses with contemporary designed housing, but also the many restaurants, bars and hotels around are true eye catchers. 

Within minutes walking you will find a Bagels & Beans coffee place, Burgers 'n Ribs restaurant, the famous Jakarta Hotel, Asian restaurant Happy Happy Joy Joy, a shopping mall, Nightclub Panama the wonderful Hanneke's Boom restaurant with large outside terrace, the Amsterdam Cruise Terminal and much, much more to enjoy.
