Everyone who loves to experience Amsterdam during the day, yet enjoy a good night rest away from the tourist masses, this is the perfect houseboat. The boat was originally built in 1932 as a freight ship and is now transformed into a great floating home, located only 34 minutes by public transport from Amsterdam. 24 hours a day reachable from and to Amsterdam central station..5 meters from the boat are 6 showers available for you and a place te BBQ!
This houseboat offers two bedrooms with comfortable double beds and if required we also offer the option to use a double bed in the living room and the wheel house.
You enter the boat via the wheel house with a sitting corner, offering a great view over the water. This couch can be turned into a double bed.
Take the stairs down and you will find the bathroom on your left hand and a bright living room with a wood stove burner. This is a great place to sit back and relax during the colder winter days, but note that the boat is equipped with comfortable central heating completely. So you don't have to burn the stove just to get warm.
In the living room we have a record player with a great vinyl collection, as well as a mp3 connection. Here you will also find a sleeping couch.
With about 80 square meters the boat offers lots of space. And once you get off the boat you will experience that Amsterdam has truly wonderful natural green areas and even a forest! Our guests particularly love the outside space both on the deck of the boat.
Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions, I'm always there to help. Look forward to welcome you aboard on our Amsterdam Houseboat Haven!

How to get there
Our houseboat in Monnickendam, a lovely characteristic fishing village, is located only 23 minutes by public transport from Amsterdam. There is a good connection available 24/7, so Amsterdam is literally around the corner.
About the area
The harbor where this houseboat is located is spacious and green, with a nice forst just a couple of minutes away. A great way to change scenes after a busy day in town.
Love to share the houseboat experience for you!
The city life is 24 minits away by bus and the boat is in a verry tranquile area perfect to relax before and afther the city!
Monnickendam is also really beautiful and pitoresk!
And great to walk around!

Thanks for having us on your houseboat
We really enjoyed our houseboat holiday. The boat is located on a quiet and relaxed area. It was easy to get to the centre of the city (about 15 minutes by bus) The free ferry to the centre is quiet a walk, but very doable when using bikes. There is a very good super market within walking distance of the houseboat - this was very convenient too. Thanks for having us!

Great spacious houseboat in Amsterdam
Really cool and quiet place to stay in Amsterdam. There were 6 of us and plenty of room for us al. Actually bigger than it looks on the photo's. Vinyl collection was great. Fire keep the whole boat warm, even in mid-winter when we stayed on this houseboat. Easy connection to central station, about 15 minutes and the local cafe is great for bite to eat.
Would certainly stay again when back in Amsterdam

We stayed over New Years, a party of six was more than comfortable on the boat. Anton was really welcoming and helpful with instructions on how to operate the heating etc. Even let us use 3 of his bikes that are on site! Communal showers are great if you want to save some water on the boat. Log fire is amazing and warms the boat up really quickly. Comfy beds. The surrounding area of Monnickendam is really nice, especially at night! It's around a 10 minute walk to the bus stop from the boat to get to Amsterdam Central, this will drop you right near the train station in Central. Would definitely stay again.

Charming houseboat in Amsterdam with a great host
Anton warmly welcomed us aboard on the newly renovated houseboat, where the fireplace was already on. We had a great weekend. Going back and forth with the Ferry goes very fast, but there are also nice restaurants and bars in the neighborhood. The area (NDSM site) is still in development. This means that there are still some buildings under construction, but we found that actually very charming. In terms of facilities, the shower needs to be given some attention, but I think Anton is definitely getting started. We were staying here with two persons but the great thing is that the boat is also very suitable for more people.
Reply from Anton: Thanks for your great review - glad to say that the shower is fixed ;-)

Swim around your own Amsterdam houseboat !
The lodging on the ship was very relaxing for my family and me. We loved the location, could see the whole harbor and swim a round every day. We reached the city quickly by ferry or by bus. Therefore a clear recommendation for this houseboat from me and my family!
With love, Kim
