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.

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 ;-)

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!

A beauiful place to stay
This houseboat is not an anonymous hotel suite, but a very romantic place to spend your holidays on. It's perfect for couples and offers two more beds for kids or friends. There is a fireplace and a nice collection of vinyls to spend the evenings! The gas stove and the kitchen equipment is simple and easy to handle. Electricity and heating are working properly. The actual location at the Marina in Monnickendam is just fine to shop some food in the local supermarket or enjoy the old dutch fisher village and have a drink at one of the the lovely pubs.
From Monnickendam you're at Amsterdam Centraal within 30 minutes by bus or you can explore the beautiful landscape and the neighbor villages Volendam and Edam by bike. The owner of the boat and the staff at the Marina are very supportive, everything worked out just fine! So have fun in Waterland! Ahoi*
