Houseboat description

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!

    Surprising - a houseboat can move

    Dear following guest,

    the boat was what I expected: cosy, big enough for four, with basic comfort and as others wrote before not all the way tidy.

    Surprising was: I booked the boat in January in the centre of Amsterdam. Meanwhile the boat moved to Monnickendam. I received no information about that until receiving the route-discription one week before travelling. So we had to buy extra overlandbustickets (which are not valid in Amsterdam) and spent time on the bus. The connection is good, but I booked something different.

    I asked Anton for a fair discount (to pay the bustickets for two days for the four of us = 72 € = 15 % discount), what he rejected, because he would loose money that weekend. Fact is: I lost money, because I did not receive, what was promised. In my opinion it is an inappropriate behaviour.

    Two hints at the end: 1. there was no lake view, as written in the "new" discription. 2. It´s never 80 square meters inside the boat, not even 60. Do not use the wheel house for sleeping, you will have no place to sit anymore.

    Excellent stay

    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 ;-)
