Houseboat description

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.

    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.
