- Fully equipped kitchen, dishwasher, wifi, tv, stereo

- living like a local on a houseboat
The Brouwersgracht has been chosen more then once to be the most beautiful canal in Amsterdam. 2 minutes away you will find: the Haarlemmerstraat and its extension, the Haarlemmerdijk - is a gem!
Offering independent boutiques and specialty stores, little salons, trendy but affordable restaurants and bars and the oldest cinema in Amsterdam, this area will certainly appeal to the most jaded of world-travelers.
You are guaranteed to find a special little gift from Amsterdam in this alternative shopping district. And with a constant passing parade along the Haarlemmerstraat, you can spend a very entertaining afternoon just watching the world go by.
The houseboat is located in the very heart of the historical Jordaan. Originally a working-class neighborhood, the Jordaan has become one of the most expensive, upscale locations in the Netherlands. It is home to many art galleries, particularly for modern art, and is also dotted with specialty shops and restaurants.
Markets are held regularly at Noordermarkt, the Westerstraat (the Lapjesmarkt a textile market) and Lindengracht.
Rembrandt spent the last years of his life in the Jordaan, on the Rozengracht canal. He is buried in the Westerkerk church, at the corner of Rozengracht and Prinsengracht, in walking distance from our boat.
The Anne Frank House is also located nearby, on the Prinsengracht canal.
Entering this boat you find yourself in the kitchen area overlooking the historic canals of Amsterdam. Cooking the perfect pasta or drink the best coffee can be done in this fully equipped kitchen watching the ducks swim by. In the middle of the boat you find a dining table, comfortable couch, music stereo and Kingsize bed. Behind the bed is a large bath tub with shower and a separate toilet. On board are flatscreen TV with DVD player, HBO movie channels, dishwash machine, and also fresh towels and bed linen are included.
It all makes you never want to go home again.

Relaxing Amsterdam Break
Really enjoyed our experience of staying in a house boat in Amsterdam. The boat was very well located, in a quiet canal, not far from the main tourist attactions and tram stations.
Our welcome was very warm, and we appreciated the flexibility of our host regarding the checkout time.
Accomodation was comfortable for the 3 of us. Kitchen and bathroom clean and well equiped - and we appreciated the complimentary tea & coffee!
Thank you to our hosts for this charming experience.

My first stay in Amsterdam,whit my son and on a houseboat. The boat was beautiful, and there was everything we needed. Also some welcome gifts, some cookies and a very cold beer, its was great.The owner Gwen was very helpful with what ever we ask for. The bed and the blankets was very good, we sleep as babys. The houseboat was near everything, so we could walk to all the things we would see. After a day walking, its was great to take a long warm bath in the bathtub. The kitchen had all we needed, and we was very glad for the coffee machine. the weather was great sun and 18 degrees so we opened the door to the kanals and sad in the doorway and just enjoy life. Amazing.
I will come back to Amsterdam on holiday and on this houseboat again
