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.

Great houseboat in Jordaan
Location is excellent! Gwen met us and check in was easy and quick. Boat is clean and has everything you need. Close walk to central station and most other sites around Amsterdam. Location is in quieter part of Amsterdam and less tourists, which is nice. Would highly recommend this houseboat and we hope to stay there again!

The Jordan Heart - A True GEM
Staying at Claire's houseboat was a wonderful experience and we cannot thank her and Gwen enough for having us! We loved the boat and neighbourhood. Everything went well and we would definately stay there again. Highly recommended!
Cool houseboat at a relaxed location in Amsterdam
Really cool place not far from the Amsterdam City itself. We walked about 20 minutes at a leisurely pace. The boat itself is very clean and well kept. A privillege to stay at. The owners are very friendly and lenient with check-in and out times. We even got a nice welcoming present. Definitely recommended if you want to visit the city but don't want to to stay near the busy streets.

I let love in.
My wife and I spent our 40th wedding anniversary in our favourite city and on the sweet little houseboat Love and Light and couldn't think of anywhere more delightful and more fitting for an intimate romantic holiday hideaway on the quite gentle canal of the Brouwersgracht in the heart of the Jordan, we had a wonderful time in Love and Light and Claire and Gwen we would like to say a great big thank you for letting us stay on your sweet little houseboat x.
