Houseboat summary

Living on the water right in the middle of the city centre has been a dream of myself for a long time. And now that this dream has come true, I love to share this wonderful experience with you. Enjoy full privacy with your own apartment, located in the city centre, yet on a very quiet and laid back location. Walk just one minute and you'll be in the buzzing part part of the city centre. Yes, this really feels like a hidden gem in Amsterdam!



In case we notice that this rule is not respected, we kindly but urgently ask you to leave, without any refund.

Houseboat description

The studio aboard the houseboat is fully private, so no need to share anything with anyone. The living room with kitchenette is very light and bright, thanks to the large windows in the ceiling.

Light and bright 

Although you will actually be staying in the hull of a former ancient freight ship, built in 1890(!), you will have the level of luxury you would expect in a modern apartment. The houseboat studio offers about 30 sqm of space and has floor heating all through the place, there is also good insulation and a nice finishing all through the boat. Yet, we have maintained the character of the ship by showing the original steel beams supporting the deck. So you still will have a genuine nautical experience, despite the thorough renovation and upgrade of the vessel.

Bedroom and bathroom

The bedroom is located around the corner of the living space, in a really cool and rustic space in the bow of the ship. You will enjoy a great night sleep on the comfortable double bed - not disturbed by masses of drunk tourist like in many other canals might happen. Sleeping here will make you feel like a true sailor for sure!

The separate bathroom is modern and comfortable, again with nice ceiling windows to ensure a light and bright atmosphere. There is a large rain shower, sink and toilet. Also this space offers floor heating for your convenience.

Things to do within walking distance

Our ship is docked on probably the longest and one of the oldest canals of Amsterdam, and actually on a very peaceful and quiet part. Walk to the left once you get off the boat and you will hit the Vijzelgracht with many cool breakfast places, restaurants and bars. Around the corner you'll see the famous Heineken Brewery. This is as well the beginning of the Pijp-area: well known for the countless great bars and restaurants. Walk the other side to find the Leidse Square, Museum Square and the Vondelpark. 

But you don't even need to go this far. Just step out of the studio, onto the deck terrace and enjoy the typical Amsterdam houses around you.

Hope to have given you the best possible impression - but don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. Love to give you the best Amsterdam houseboat experience possible!
