Our houseboat sits on a sunny and quiet canal in the heart of Amsterdam, close to Centraal Station, Anne Frank House, The Jordaan and the Canals. Enjoy the view with a glass of wine or a Dutch beer in the steering cabin. The space is centrally heated and double glazed for chilly days. Your space is totally private with your own bathroom, bedroom, captain's room and wheel house. You also have access to outside space on our pier where you can relax into the evening on warm summer nights.

We had such a great time in Amsterdam and most of that was due to this location. It's a little bit out of the way and that made our stay a little more cozy and private. The boat is gorgeous and you can tell it's been well taken care of. Ayla had so many great suggestions of…

Wonderful location within a short walk of Centraal. Very accommodating hosts. If you're looking for an unusual stay in Amsterdam I recommend Ayla and Jake's place highly. (Just be aware you will need to climb stairs, deck, and if you're short - will have to be creative to jump…

Ayla and Jake are very responsive and were able to allow us into the space a little earlier than check-in to accommodate our early morning arrival. As the description states, the space is compact so those with large luggage may feel a bit cramped. My fiance and I "backpacked"…

We are a Dutch couple (I am originally American) who love to travel and meet people, so having a b&b is a great way to bring the world closer to us! We were introduced to each other on a hot summer's day at a beach party at Blijburg by Jake's dog Max (who was on the planet for…
