Our studio/apartment is on a typical Amsterdam houseboat. It is a modern, friendly and bright apartment very close to the centre (10 min. to CS). A good way of getting to know and enjoy our beloved and beautiful city. We also have two bicycles free. The studio has its own entrance, kitchen and bathroom, very private and no sharing.

The space

We have our boat now for 11 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.

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.

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.

We loved our time on the houseboat. Close to loads of cafes, restaurants, shopping. Boat was comfortable with plenty of room. East walk to city and close to buses and trams. Highly recommended!

The pictures and description do not do this place justice. It's a stunning apartment, fantastic location, and gives you a chance to see the real Amsterdam. Marike is a great host who can give you some amazing local recommendations. The flat was spacious, clean, larger than expected and has its own outside space on the deck of the boat. The free bikes that come with the booking are great fun and I couldn't recommend a better place to stay in Amsterdam.

The small houseboat was very clean and cosy, you don't have very much space but it's enough for two person. Marikes houseboat has the perfect location, by bike, which is included, you are in about 10 minutes in the city center and in the evening it's very quiet there. You also have supermarkets and restaurants close to the boat. You even can swim there! We really enjoyed our stay there and we loved Marikes cat Lulu who visited us alot

Very nice and original flat, we were warmly welcomed and the bikes were very useful to go to the different sighteeing points. We even could use the terrace !

We had a fantastic time at the cozy boat. From the morning-coffee on the little terrace to the stylish little bathroom, from the very comfortable bed to the bikes and the nice hints and directions about the neighbourhood, they provided us with everything you need for a citytrip beyond the obvious tourist-locations, yet close enough to the center. I definitely recommend it.
