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!

Anton was very helpful and gave very good indications of where the boat was and how to get there from Amsterdam. The boat is very neat a cozy and in a nice and quiet place.

Great location for exploring Amsterdam
After the negative first impressions, which I might add, could really impact your stay, we found that this houseboat has a certain charm.
We would highly recommend that Anton spends a little time and money just tidying and fixing up the boat. It is undoubtedly a great area, the local bar the authentic Chinese coupled with the warmth of the local people, makes staying in this area a real pleasure.
Our stay unfortunately was during a rather wet and windy period but that did not dampen the enjoyment of Amsterdam.
The local bar/cafe is excellent. The owner and the young lady who served us were extremely welcoming, spoke fantastic English. We went there after our Chinese on the Friday evening and the clientele just accepted us as if we were everyday customers.
As mentioned earlier the boat needs some attention to bring it to a good standard. Tidying away some unnecessary items would be a huge start. Removing one of the wood burners would create extra space. The working wood burner however was superb, adding real charm and extra warmth during the cold spell and evenings.
We plan to return in the summer as I think the boat and the area will be even better, much like the Norfolk Broads but less pretentious.

Fantastic spacious boat in wonderful location 15 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam
Just spent 4 nights with some friends from Australia on Anton’s boat moored in Monnickendam. Boat quite rustic but very comfortable and clean, very comfy beds!
The location is perfect, moored in the beautiful town of Monnickendam, easily accessible to Amsterdam in 15 minutes by bus.
Unfortunately we didn’t get to meet Anton but he was very quick to respond to any questions, nothing was too much trouble.
We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend Anton’s boat and bookahouseboat.com!
