About this listing
Waking up with the sound of ducks with a view on the canal in the heart of Amsterdam! Our modern houseboat offers comfortable, spacious accommodation for 4 people. Enjoy the canal view and romantic terrace centrally located next to the famous Heineken Brewery and Albert Cuyp market.
WELCOME TO "I AM HOUSEBOAT"
Our houseboat of 100m2 has a spacious living room with a large sofa, TV and CD / DVD player and film with UPC on demand. The open kitchen with modern equipment offers the possibility to prepare your own meal at home. The basic ingredients for cooking are available for you.
The 2 bedrooms have a comfortable double bed, both with a view on the canal. The master bedroom is air-conditioned. The bathroom has a luxurious massage shower / bath / whirlpool suitable for 2 people. Clean bedding and towels will be available for you.
The large windows along the waterside make the house very light and you can enjoy the sight of passing (canal) boats and enjoy life on the water in Amsterdam. The view on the water and the quiet Nicolaas Witsenkade in combination with the double windows make the house very quiet and peaceful from the inside, although located in a busy and exciting area of De Pijp in Amsterdam.
Experience the unique way of living on a houseboat in Amsterdam, with the comfort of all luxurious facilities.
MOVEMENT: The houseboat is very stable so there is minimal movement, no worries for motion sickness.
HEATING: The houseboat is well isolated and equiped with double glass windows + central heating, so warm and comfortable during colder days.

Interaction with guests
Breakfast is not included but available on request and will be charged separately. Several supermarkets are located within 100m and the Albert Cuyp market with big variety of fresh food is located within 300m distance.
Our houseboat is located in the heart of Amsterdam, in the popular area named 'De Pijp'. The Heineken Brewery and the famous Albert Cuyp market are very close. 'De Pijp' is popular among tourists and locals for its wide variety of bars, restaurants, shops and local market. From this location the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum, Stedelijk Museum, Concertgebouw, Vondelpark, Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein can be easily reached within a 15 minutes walk.
A good way to explore the city is by bike (2 bikes available). A different way to explore the beauty of the city centre is to take a canal cruise (almost next door). On a boat you will get the best view of the historical buildings of Amsterdam.
Public transport is available within 100m from the houseboat. Schiphol Airport takes 20 minutes by taxi and 45 minutes by train to Central Station and tram to arrive near the houseboat.
I am looking forward to welcome you in our home and offer you a great stay in Amsterdam!

I like to discover the beautiful places and remarkable cities our world has to offer. For me, the best way to do this, is to ask the locals about their favorite places, nice squares, special parks, trendy shops, bars and restaurants. This way you will directly find the best spots not discovered by the tourist guides yet ;-) I am an enthouiastic woman who likes to share the unique experience of living on the water in my beautiful houseboat with people from all over the world. Let's meet and I will share with you why I love to live in Amsterdam!
