About this listing
Looking for a quiet, affordable, romantic and private place to stay in a big garden very near to the center of Amsterdam? This mobile home (25m2) is located in the very sunny and spacious garden of my houseboat, just few minutes away from the center of Amsterdam. Experience spending the night in complete quiet and natural surroundings yet with the center very nearby. And wake up only to be disturbed by birds celebrating a new day! The mobile home offers a living room, bedroom with doublebed, kitchen, tv, bathroom (shower and sink), seperate toilet, comfortable couch, a small dinner table with two chairs, heating, free wifi etc.
In front you can relax at a table with two chairs.
Also there is FREE PARKING (24/7) possible at appr. 800 meters from the property.
At just a few minutes walking distance, the free ferry (24/7) takes you in less than two minutes 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 the the garden home 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, some bars and very nice restaurants and soon a hotel with revolving restaurant transformed at the former Shell Tower.
And if you'd 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 my 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 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 ;-)
Chalet was schoon en netjes, behalve het koffiezetapparaat, daar zat nog een beschimmelde koffiefilter in; alles was aanwezig, prima bed, nette wc en badkamer. Het enige probleem waar we telkens tegenaan liepen was het slot van de poort. Het was maar goed dat Reinhart aanwezig was, anders hadden we buiten de poort moeten overnachten... Voor de rest alles prima en natuurlijk een fantastische locatie; binnen 5 minuten bij het station. Zeer aan te bevelen!!!
Our stay with Reinhart was great. The location was a hidden gem. Its on the north side, just one quick ferry to the central station (that runs every five minutes 24/7). You get the quieter evenings but great access to the city. The unit itself was as described. It is a rustic experience that we loved.
Sehr schön gelegene, individuelle Unterkunft - klein aber fein! Ein bißchen in die Jahre gekommen, aber sehr sauber und gemütlich. Super Anbindung an das Zentrum von Amsterdam via Fähre. Die Kommunikation mit Reinhart war sehr nett und informativ - alle Fragen wurden sofort beantwortet! Tipp: Unbedingt das Restaurant Tolhuistuin besuchen :-)
Great experience with Stephen. Gave great directions that got us to his place. As described. Close enough to everything in London but far enough away that you can get a good night sleep. Has everything you need if you're planning to make the most of you're time out and about in the city. Thank you for a fantastic experience!
We enjoyed staying in Reinhart's small mobile home, cooking our favorite breakfast at "home" and then taking the short, pleasant walk to the ferry to cross to Amsterdam center. The place is quaint and cozy although a bit dated, and the bedroom is only big enough for the bed, but the trailer is well-equipped and the garden space is very nice. These features plus its central location made for a good value. Reinhart is a friendly, helpful host.
Perfect location. The garden apartment is a short (free) ferry ride from Amsterdam Central station, where you can get to all sights, both inside and out of Amsterdam. The apartment is fully self contained and although small, has everything you need to stay in Amsterdam. Reinhart is a very good host, explaining everything and offering good sightseeing tips. Highly recommended.
Wow what a great location. After a 24 hour flight the bed was so comfortable. I love waking up to the sound of the birds every morning. The accommodation had everything that the ad said and we would love to return one day

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?
