Newly renovated houseboat apartment, located on one of the most inspiring locations in Amsterdam!

Houseboat summary

Be welcome aboard our newly renovated houseboat apartment. It's a very special place that I would describe as both charming and inspiring. Overlooking the world famous Prinsengracht you will feel like a true local. The location is absolutely triple-A, in the middle of the Jordaan area, and the iconic church 'Noorderkerk' right across the water. Although the deck house (the space where the skipper used to live) is not huge, you will have everything you need during your visit to our city. 

Houseboat description

After arriving at Central Station, it's only a 10 minute walk through the buzzing and wonderful Jordaan area. Or you take a taxi from Schiphol Airport of course, this is on average a 25 minute ride. From the quay you get aboard your private houseboat apartment via the gangway, after which you first see your private terrace. This is without a doubt one of the coolest places you can imagine to enjoy your fist cup of coffee and make plans for an inspiring day in town.

Ancient but comfortable

Now let's descend into your private apartment in the front of our former freight ship, over 100 years of age but still going strong. We have recently renovated this place, ensuring that you get all the comfort you would expect in a modern apartment, yet with the nautical character of a real ship. I especially like the characteristic wooden floor, combined with vintage Portugese tiles, and various portholes that are dotted around the side of the ships' hull. 

Via the custom built stairs you enter the studio with a convenient lounge corner and table set to enjoy breakfast. We don't offer a fully equipped kitchen because we notice that most guests are not planning to cook at home after all, and space aboard any ship is kind of limited. However, we do offer a refrigerator, water cooker, coffee maker and microwave. We are more than happy to share our favorite restaurants and bars nearby!

Light and bright

Apart from the portholes, there are also various windows that let in lots of light to ensure a light and bright atmosphere aboard the place. So even though a severe part of the living area is below water level, we have managed to create a pleasant ambiance. You will be sleeping in the very front of the ship, without a doubt one of the coziest places you ever slept!

If you decide to come with more than 2 persons (and you don't mind bumping into each other) the sofa in the living room can be turned into a comfortable double bed. 

Aboard our ship you have full privacy. There is one door that leads to our part of the ship, but this is closed and very well insulated. The other door in the studio leads to the neatly tiled bathroom, conveniently designed with a sink, shelves toilet and shower. 

Conveniently located

The location could not be more central. Right in the middle of the Jordaan Area, with the (multiple times awarded as the most beautiful canal in Amsterdam) and the majestic Keizersgracht just around the corner. The Anne Franks House and Westerkerk are only minutes walking away. And maybe the best thing about this our place: the world famous Apple Pie-place 'Winkel' is located right across the canal ;-) 

Some final words before you book

Last but not least we want to let you know that we warmly welcome guests aboard from all over the world. However, we are not a party place whatsoever. If you break any of our reasonable house rules (no smoking, no drugs of any kind, no loud music) we will have to tell you to leave at once, without any refund. I thought it would be better to be clear about this before you book, to avoid disappointment at a later stage. We have a good relationship with our neighbors and we like to keep it that way. Thanks for understanding!
