My name is Eliane and I love to welcome you aboard our pride and joy: The Jordan Wheelhouse. This is a two bedroom apartment on the historic freight ship. From the wheelhouse you have a panoramic view over the wonderful canals of Amsterdam.
The ship is docked in the Jordaan, next to the corner of the famous Prinsengracht. This is right in the centre with countless charming bars, restaurants and boutique shops within a stone's throw distance.
But first let's take a look at the houseboat apartment that you may call your floating home in Amsterdam for a while. The big wheelhouse - with the original wheel still there - is without a doubt a unique and super cozy place to sit back and relax, while the buzzing city life passes by. Have a first cup of coffee and watch the swans, ducks and geese pass by. There are two tables, two chairs and a lounge sofa for ultimate relaxation. In the wheelhouse you have access to a small fridge, coffee maker, cooker and a micro-wave oven. Note that we don't have a kitchen, but who would seriously consider cooking when you have such an abundance of restaurants around?
In the hull of the ship we offer two charming bedrooms, each with a high-quality double bed. This makes the boat perfect for small families and couples traveling together. Each bedroom has a personal character and is shaped in a unique and charming way, with several nautical elements such as the traditional portholes.
The tastefully decorated bathroom, with shower, sink and toilet, is conveniently situated between the two bedrooms.
Last but not least: know that the whole boat is well insulated (recently renovated) and has comfortable central heating. This way you are ensured to be nice and warm, even on the coldest winter nights.
I hope to have given you the best possible impression of our houseboat apartment in the city centre of Amsterdam, but don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions - always glad to help!

Great stay in the Jordaan
We'll miss being on this wonderful houseboat, watching the birds swim by and living right in the centre of the lively Jordaan area. The exceptional good February weather gave a silver lining to our stay on this floating apartment. The wheelhouse is a real cool place to be and watch the city life go by while you feel like a true local. The beds are comfortable and in the wheelhouse you can sit back and relax with a drink at hand. At least, if you decide not to frequent the bar Thyssen right across the street - a super nice place with a great sunny terrace. And we we had the best lamb ever in an Italian restaurant called Il Fiore, also within 1 minute walking. The place is not huge, but offers great comfort and a unique Amsterdam houseboat experience. Thanks Eliane for having us. We hope to be back one day!

Amazing location, unique memories!
We stayed at the Jordaan Wheelhouse for five days over the New Year’s Eve holiday period with our two tween kids and we loved it! The boat is really stylish and comfortable inside and also really warm even in near freezing temperatures. We have great memories of staying in this unique place, playing cards on the upper deck or having a New Years drink on the bow. The kids loved their cabin below deck too. The boathouse is in the best location, close to restaurants, cafes, the Haarlemmerstraat area and shops and supermarkets. We recommend the yummy Indonesian food at cafe Tabac just over the road, and hope to come back to enjoy more of this great neighborhood.
