The most romantic spot in the most exciting part of Amsterdam? My spacious houseboat in a historic lock with a large idyllic garden and a fantastic view over the river IJ and the skyline of Amsterdam.
I welcome you to stay at my unique place, offering you all the convience for an unforgettable Amsterdam city trip:
- Bedroom and seperate private room in a spacious houseboat with a big garden. Quiet and peaceful but yet very close to the City Center:
- Large bedroom, tv, minibar, free Wifi + seperate (open) room + (shared) luxurious bathroom with bath and seperate shower.
- 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)
- All public transport available from Central Station: Bus, Tram, Subway. Only a few stops to all major museums.
- Walking distance to the center and practically to all nice neighboorhoods and the famous canals.
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! Walk straight to the Jordan with cozy cafes, restaurants, shops and special markets, the Nieuwmarkt or stroll along the famous Amsterdam canals. 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. Do you want to know more about special and undiscovered places, nice cafes and good and cozy restaurants both in town and in this emerging district? Just ask. For other questions you can also contact me. I look forward to receiving you at our special location!

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
We had a big day getting to Amstersam and when we finally got to Reinhart's house boat i was a bit worried as all the parking spaces were full. We found plenty of free parking about 30 metres away anyway. Reinhart was away and had told us how to access his house although the previous tennants still had the key with them. Reinhart sorted this out for us and in 5 minutes his cleaner had let us in. Inside was nice, the bed was comfortable and there are 2 ferries that run straight to central station, they are about 5 minutes walk from the house. On the last day Reinhart made us breakfast with tea coffee and juice, it was really nice.
Reinhart ist ein toller Gastgeber und das Feeling auf dem Hausboot unübertroffen. Exzellentes Frühstück mit Blick aufs Wasser. Die Bilder auf airbnb entsprechen 100 % der Realität! Das Hausboot ist sehr zentral gelegen, ruhig und jederzeit mit der Fähre erreichbar. Reinhart, we will come back!
Accueil très chaleureux de Reinhart qui s'est être discret mais présent pour donner des informations pour visiter la ville. L'house-boat était conforme à la description, nous avons apprécié la tranquillité des lieux, l'emplacement de la péniche est au top pour visiter Amsterdam. La chambre était parfaite ainsi que les petits déjeuners copieux préparés par Reinhart.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Amsterdam.
Adresse à retenir et à faire connaître!!!
Danke an Reinhart !!! Super Unterkunft , netter Gastgeber. Das Frühstück war genial. Lage zu den Fähren ca. 5 Minuter zu gehen aber doch sehr ruhig gelegen. Kann man ruhigen Gewissens weiter empfehlen. Wenn ich wieder einmal nach Amsterdam komme werde ich bei Reinhart auf seinem Hausboot wohnen.

Reinhart was a great host, his directions were perfect so we arrived soon after leaving the station. He was waiting for us and made us feel welcome immediately. He is laid back and discreet, yet attentive if you need directions or recommendations for restaurants or museums. The houseboat was just as the photos showed and the gentle rocking of the house is very relaxing and adds an extra dimension to the stay. The breakfast was always fresh and set us up for the day, Rheinhart was flexible about looking after our bags on the last day, which was really helpful.
Reinhart es una persona encantadora y nos hizo sentir cómodos desde el primer momento. El barco, además de ser una experiencia fantástica y muy simbólica de la ciudad, está ubicado en un sitio estupendo para poder visitar la ciudad sin estar con trenes o autobuses. A pesar del temporal, la temperatura en el interior del barco es estupenda y daba gusto volver a casa.
Accueil chaleureux avec des petits chocolats et un house-boat conforme à la description. Reinhart était présent à notre arrivée et prépare des excellents petits-déjeuners. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la tranquillité du lieu et la proximité de tous transports pour se promener dans Amsterdam. La navette gratuite pour traverser le IJ River est un plus. Les indications du site pour trouver le house-boat étaient très claires. Nous avons passés un séjour très agréable. Je recommande particulièrement cet hôte.

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?
