My place is right on the canal in the best possible location. You’ll love it because of the ambiance of being on a houseboat and our neighbourhood. It's good for couples, friends, business travelers, and families (incl with kids).

We are walking distance to Anne Frank's House, and all main museums. There are many great restaurants and shops a stone throw away, as well as famous markets on Saturday (Farmer's Market) and Monday (vintage) at Noordermarkt, right outside your cosy home!

The space
Our place is not an actual ship, but more like an apartment on the water. On one side of the houseboat you can open all windows and sit quietly overlooking the water. On the other side there is the bustle of the city center, bars, restaurants and shops. Its really a unique experience!

Where you’ll be

Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands

Our neighbourhood, the famous Noordermarkt, is one of the best spots in Amsterdam. There is a market square in front of the house with a well known organic food/farmers market on Saturday and Vintage/Antiques market on Monday's. It provides a local buzz without being annoying and you feel privileged to have the easy access right from your doorstep. All other days, children play on the playground and restaurants put up their terraces there. It's really an Amsterdam experience to its fullest extent. Close by are restaurants like Toscanini, Domenica, Joe&then Juice, Libertine, the famous Tweede Egelantiersdwarsstraat, several nighttime hotspots and of course Westerpark and Vondelpark.

Hi, I am Maarten. I love traveling myself, so I also enjoy being a host to you in one of the most exciting cities in Europe: Amsterdam. I travel a lot for work myself (I head EMEA for a USA based start-up in the hospitality industry), and my houseboat is really such a perfect place to stay (location wise AAA) that I hope you will enjoy it too! I understand what its like to create a 'home' feel for guests, and if travelling myself I have a lot of friends around the area whom can welcome you, but would preferably welcome you into my house myself. Happy traveling! Maarten
