The Space

We have our boat now for 8 years. We bought the boat as an empty barge and built it ourselves into a houseboat. Only the outside needs some paint to finish it all.The apartment is a spare part on our boat with a private entrance and very comfortable for a short holiday. It is situated very close to the centre but in an friendly and save neighbourhood. During the day you can choose the busy and alive city and at night sleep in a peacefull and quiet area. It's the best of both we always say.

Guest Access

We have free wifi on board, 2 bicycles for our guests and a sundeck outside. Our boat is on the south side of the islands so the sundeck has sun all day.
The apartment is well equipped with all the things you need for a comfortable stay.
We also have a stash of basic needs like coffee, tea, sugar, salt, seasoning, etc.
And by arrival we have a free nice bottle of wine for a good start of your stay.

Interaction with Guests

We love to help you out with providing information and help to have a pleasant stay. You are always welcome to ask about the city like what to do and where to go.
We also have an information folder with detailles about the neighbourhood and the city.

The Neighborhood

Our boat is located on the Borneokade in The Docklands, only 10 minutes from Central Station. The Docklands is located in the northeast of the city, it is the old port of Amsterdam, where coffee and spices used to be shipped in. Most ships are now converted into houseboats. In addition, the Docklands is known for its modern architecture. Developed since 1990, the area attracts many tourists, and provides the benefits and atmosphere of a harbor. There are many cozy and good bars, restaurants and shops, which are open seven days a week. If you are not afraid of the cold, you can even dare to swim in the water. The house is located just a short distance from the city center, and is attainable by bike or the frequent public transport connections.

Getting Around

There is easy access to the public transport. Within a short distance we have several stops for the bus and tram to bring you directly to central station, the museums or the centre. The cheapest way to travel with public transport is with an OV Chip cart. We can provide carts for 10 euro (with a credit of 10 euro).
boat - central station: bus 48 10 min.
boat - central station: tram 26 5 min. and a little walk
boat - museum (Van Gogh, Rijks museum, Stedelijk museum): 20 min.
boat - centre: by bicycle 10 min.

Other Things to Note

If you plan to come by car we advise you to park the car at the P&R Zeeburg. It's just one stop with the tram 26 from our apartment. If you park there the car is safe and you won't get any trouble with the parking in Amsterdam. The costs are 8 euro for a day with a free return ticket for the public transport.
