Wake up in Amsterdam with a homemade espresso and a sunny view over the canal. Walk or bike to the Jordaan, Museum District or City Center. Trendy bars, restaurants and coffeebars are really close.
The houseboat is a 50m2 modern, open, spacious, fully equipped and very quiet home. It has central heating to keep you warm during even the coldest winter nights.
Floating in a lovely and quiet canal where sometimes small boats, swans and ducks pass by.
On a sunny day you can easily move the floating waterterrace in front of the boat to sit outside on the water.
The style is modern and convenient and a perfect match with singles or couples. You will find everything to your convenience: a big and very comfortable double bed, an extra large table, highspeed wifi, cable and Apple tv, a luxurious rainshower, a fully equipped kitchen with a dishwasher and espresso machine, a washer and dryer and a big lounge area with a big flatscreen.
You can use my 2 bikes to explore Amsterdam. Dutch people are used to pedalbreak bikes, so you might need a bit practice if you are used to handbrakes.
If you stay here you will be in the middle of all good and exciting Amsterdam has to offer and stay in a quiet and cozy place.
Amsterdam is all about location. Here you find yourself right in between the historical Jordaan District and the Museum District. Locals know New West as the upcoming area with new coffeebars, little restaurants and shops popping up every week.
Just around the corner you find so much to do, like the daily Ten Kate market, small coffee bars, unique shops, the biggest and lively citypark, all kinds of restaurants, bars with local beers and the famous canals for the best sunny stroll in Amsterdam.
The best parts of Amsterdam are very close. The Jordaan District (5 min), Vondelpark (7 min), City Center (10 min) and Museum District (10 min) are at walking distance. A lot of trams stop just around the corner and can bring you everywhere you need to go. The main trainstation Amsterdam Central is the closest.
Treat my home and neighbours like your own, respect my personal belongings and be nice to the beautiful swans. By the way, don't feed those lovely birds on the water, not even the ducks, they will enter the houseboat and make your nights uncomfortable.
It's my home, which means I really live there :)
- Absolutely no smoking in the houseboat. You can easily step outside and have a smoke next to the canal.
- Leave my personal belongings and stuff to me, there's already a lot of things for you to use and play with.
- Do not feed the goose. Believe me, you don't want them to hang around the houseboat.
Thank you so much for living in my place like a local and comply to the few houserules.
Was a great stay. The boat is perfect and the location super!! Only the dugs and swans can be really loud!
Kim's houseboat was even better than we thought. A perfect location and very comfortable. Her friend me checked us in and check out was just as smooth. A great place to stay and a very authentic cool experience.
Kim's friendly and helpful commumication whilst booking gave us the feeling that we had discovered a good option for our holiday and we weren't disappointed. The house boat is perfectly located within comfortable walking distance of the city centre and the facilities were very comfortable and functional. The hot shower was always welcome at the end of the day. Although we ate out a lot at one of the many restaurants close by, everything we needed was there when we did eat on board. A friend of Kim's handed the keys over to us and was vey helpful on her knowledge of things to do and see in Amsterdam. We had a great time....thanks Kim
Superb place. Central. Nice and friendly host. You won't experience sleeping in a boat in many places so for it!
Loved staying here. Really relaxed location. Close to the center, but not in the busiest part of town.
Ficamos hospedados na houseboat da Kim e foi tudo maravilhoso. O lugar é lindo, proximo de tudo e bastante calmo. A localização é perfeita. O barco é amplo e muito aconchegante, com tudo o que um casal precisa. A cama bastante confortavel e o chuveiro muito bom.
Kim não pode nos recepcionar, mas pediu a uma amiga, Fransje, para representa-lá . Fransje foi sempre muito atenciosa e simpatica, um plus em nossa estadia.
Certamente recomendarei a houseboat da Kim aos amigos.

I live in Amsterdam and work as a freelancer in online marketing strategy for companies around the world. I love to travel, discover new places and meet new people. I did a lot of home exchanges in the past years and am getting slightly hooked on AirBnB now. It's a great compliment when people feel at home and have a great time in my own home.
I'll always take care of your place like it's my own.
