This authentic freighter from the thirties gives your holiday in Amsterdam an unique touch. It is located in the heart of Amsterdam in a quiet neighborhood, which is famous by it's modern architecture.
Let yourself astonish by this beautiful houseboat, located in an unique area in Amsterdam. The boat is cosy and romantic. Drink a glass of wine with your beloved one in the livingroom, which is very open and bright. The wood stove makes the evening even more romantic.
In the morning, take a look through one of the many autentic windows. When it's hot in the city, don't hesitate to take a refreshing dive into the canal, which is very clean. When it's not that sunny, you can rent two bikes, provided by the owner of the boat. You don't have to cycle far to see amazing spots in Amsterdam: the area is known by modern architecture and the historic citycentre is only about 15 minutes away.
The authenticy of the houseboat is well-preserved, but the modern touch in the furniture creates a homely and special athmosphere.

About the area
The houseboat is located in the cityquarter Zeeburg. This is the former harbor of Amsterdam. It is a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood and the historic citycentre is only about 15 minutes away by bike. The bus stop is located at the corner of the street, the tram is seven minutes away by foot and takes you in ten minutes to the city centre.
Since 1989, I, Otto Groeneveld, have my home at the Borneokade. Now I dwell in my Luxe Motor "Réussi" after an Westlander and Tjalk.
From vagabond to settled ;-))

Strongly recommend this houseboat
Otto's boat was a great experience. The rooms, kitchen, bathrooms were just as well equipped as any shore based traditional appartnent, but the atmosphere on the boat was unique. Otto was a very helpful, friendly host. I strongly recommend to try the book this place if you can.
