- Breakfast included.
- Comfort. Central heating, double glass etc. which makes it also comfortable to stay during winter.
- Only 3 minutes walk to the Free ferry (24/7, daytime every 5 min, night every 10 minutes). Only one minute to arrive at the center of Amsterdam (Central Station)

Enjoy the tranquility, passing ships and the city skyline. In less than two minutes the free ferry (24/7) takes you in the center of Amsterdam!

Or take the tram that takes you within five stops to all major museums like Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank house, Hermitage etc. But directly at my boat there are also plenty of things to do: from the 19th century lock you can walk to the architecturally striking Eye Film Institute (four cinema's, restaurant and bar, the Tolhuis park with music programming during Summer and soon a hotel with revolving restaurant transformed as former Shell Tower. The houseboat is spacious and bright and has a modern bathroom. The garden of 350 m2 offers complete privacy. Enjoy some time in the comfortable loungers in the sun. You'll stay in a large bedroom (approximately 6 x 2,5m2). In addition, there is a separate open room with a table and chairs, tv, free wifi and the bathroom. The bedroom view offer the sight on some houseboats and sailingboats surrounded by trees. The bathroom is shared with the me but don't worry; you only might see me there in the morning. The accomodation is for rent for at least two nights, breakfast is included.

I am not a big fan of making house rules, however here are the most important things that I would like to ask your attention for;
- Non smoking (of course you can smoke outside)
- No pets
- No other guests. You are most welcome to stay but you cannot invite other guests. Sorry.
- No loud music or other loud noise. I won't disturb you either ;-)
- No harddrugs
Communication with the host was great at all times. We arrived to find the houseboat and room prepared for our arrival, with chocolate awaiting on our bed. Reinhardt is welcoming and relaxed as a host.
We loved being in such close proximity to the Eye Filmmuseum, and being surrounded by water, ducks and boats.
We had a wonderful experience staying in Reinharts Houseboat. Very surprised about the great location and the lovely breakfast. Highly recommended.
Es war ein toller Kurztrip. Reinhard war super nett & sein Boot total sauber & gepflegt. Die Fotos täuschen nicht, wir waren wirklich begeistert. Es ist total ruhig, nahe zum Zentrum und wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen. Thank you, Reinhard, Sarah & Sina :)
Reinhart made me very welcome on his great houseboat, I really enjoyed my stay, having a bedroom, bathroom and sitting area for my own use was perfect, all very clean and comfortable.
The houseboat is located a short walk and then a free ferry ride from the city so it was very easy to get around.
Reinhart fut un hôte charmant, très serviable et d'une discrétion exemplaire, nous avons eu l'impression d'être seuls dans le logement alors qu'il n'en était rien. Merci
Had a great stay in the house boat. A nice room as described. Reinhart was there for some of the time but he gave us our privacy and provided breakfast each day, which was much appreciated. The location was fantastic, very close to central Amsterdam via the free ferry but a calm spot away from the busy center with views across the harbour. Would definitely recommend.
Wow what can we say, Reinhart is a great guy and the perfect host. The houseboat was fabulous comfortable clean and is the perfect location to getting in the city. We used Reinharts classic Dutch bikes which added to our wonderful weekend away. We will be back

About the Host, Reinhart
Hi, I am Reinhart, welcome to my profile: I have been living in Amsterdam for many years now. I work in the (international) creative industry. I like to travel, do city trips but also like to visit remote destinations. Love to be on the water, visit museums, go to theaters, enjoy live music, festivals, nice bar's and to meet nice people.
I enjoy to open my house to anyone that likes to have a truly local Amsterdam experience (on the water). We might meet soon?
