My name is Eliane and I love to welcome you aboard our pride and joy: The The Jordaan Wheelhouse - 2 BR - Sleeps 4 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 bnb is normally located in the heart of the Jordaan. From 2022 to a great part of 2024, the houseboat will be located just behind Rembrandtplein. There is no better place in the canals of Amsterdam! In the wheelhouse you have a living space with a panoramic view over the Amstel, Breathtaking. Downstairs there are two bedrooms with queen size beds, a separate shower and toilet. On the terrace behind the wheelhouse you have a nice lounge terrace and table to sit outside while enjoying the city life!
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!

My name is Eliane . I am an enthusiastic and social woman who is eager to learn and always looking for a new challenge. When I was 18 years old, I went to live on this beautiful houseboat. And I started this bed and breakfast where you are now.
I have studied ‘Hotel and event management' at the TIO University in Amsterdam. The study fits exactly with the running of this bed and breakfast. And I do the study with a lot of fun. I do this bed and breakfast next to my study and I do it with pleasure. I hope that I can show you the way in Amsterdam.

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.

Winter in AmsterdamShow original
A very nice houseboat. We felt very comfortable. Even overrunning another boat went well. It's in a different spot in Amsterdam, but that wasn't a bad thing. It was cold outside and the central heating was on inside. We still had 2 radiant heaters available, but we didn't need them at all. It's an older ship and there are stairs and small rooms, but that's exactly what made it so charming.

Fun and Memorable
Our family stayed in this cute houseboat for a few nights at the tail end of a 10 day trip around the Netherlands. It was such a fun experience - we LOVED the location - quiet at night but right near everything - the train station, the main areas we wanted to explore, everything. My daughters loved the "hidden" bedroom and it was surprisingly spacious enough for all of us. Our favorite part was sitting on the boat deck, enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine, and watching all the action on the canals and roads nearby. The bathroom/shower area is a bit tight and not very private, but worked just fine for our family. The only other small issue (not a big deal) was that the boat has a second apartment on it where the owners live, and it was very easy to hear them (and I assume for them to hear us) so it felt a little awkward sometimes, but a white noise app on our phone at night solved it. Would definitely recommend for a completely fun and memorable Amsterdam experience.

Absolutely Perfect. Better than expected.
The Jordaan Wheelhouse is a beautiful boat in an amazing location. And Eliane was a gracious and helpful host. She went out of her way to help us when we asked. The boat was clean and very comfortable.
Thank you for a lovely experience. Couldn't have been better.

We had a lovely stay on Eliane's houseboat and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a central location and a cosy setting. Eliane was really clear with instructions and made accessing the boat really easy. A great host and destination that I would happily return to.
