City centre Houseboat moored minutes away from most attractions, yet on quiet canal. Here you can watch a family of swans swim by, while enjoying breakfast in this authentic Dutch arc. Enjoy this unique experience in beautiful Amsterdam now.
For a truly unique and authentic experience, imagine waking up in a houseboat on one of the famous canals of Amsterdam. The sound of water gently lulls you to sleep outside of your window at night and in the morning you can enjoy a nice refreshing breakfast or coffee while families of swans swim by. All of this and more is possible in our romantic 2-bedroom traditional barge houseboat moored on a central historic canal which dates back to the early 1600s.
This high-ceiling, hardwood floor floating apartment boasts a fully equipped kitchen with a 5-range professional range oven, a spacious bathroom with shower, and 2 bedrooms. The interior is cheerful, quirky and colorful, and can be best described as "Spanish rustic".
This cozy houseboat sits low in the water, so is the perfect place to watch the city life pass gently by...and Amsterdam viewed from the water is really something special! However, if you tire of the amazing water views, the houseboat also comes with a flatscreen HD TV and several channels in Dutch, English, and German.
You as a guest have private access to the entire Houseboat.
Interaction with Guests
I will be at the Houseboat to greet you and let you in. After exchanging keys and showing you around, I'm happy to offer any tips about the city. After that, I'll leave you to enjoy your holiday, although I'll be available by phone to answer questions you may have during your stay.
The Amsterdam canal belt is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and in this location you are at the heart of it all! From here, all of the best sights in Amsterdam are just outside your door. You can walk to the famous Amsterdam museums on the Museum Square in 10 minutes, and the Heinken Experience is just around the corner. Nearby is the lovely local shopping street, the Utrechtsestraat, full of boutique clothing and design shops and buzzing restaurants and bars. For nightlife, just take your pick- depending on if you walk 5 minutes left or right out of your front door, you can be on the terraces of the Leidse Square, in the clubs of Rembrant Square, or in the up-and-coming De Pijp neighborhood. You can also walk to Dam Square and the Red Light District in 20 minutes, but if you prefer to take the tram, lines 16 and 24 are nearby and will bring you there in just 4 stops.
This area is very well connected with trams, and buses, making it easy to arrive any where in the city.
Jeffrey was helpful but the accommodation was disappointing in many ways, the photos did not correspond with the reality, the place was poorly furnished, it had 2 plastic wine glasses, hardly enough water glasses and the boat smelt of damp. Extremely expensive for what you get.
Eine tolle Location, in einer sehr ruhigen Straße mit wenig Durchgangsverkehr. Alles war genauso wie beschrieben und wir wurden nicht entäuscht. Die Tram-Halte fast vor der Tür und man ist Ruck-Zuck im Zentrum. Aber das geht auch gut zu Fuss. Es war eine interessante Erfahrung, Morgens Auge im Auge mit Enten wach zu werden. Für eine Wochenende Amsterdam zu empfehlen!!
I'm so glad that we chose this boat for our holiday. It was my first time in Amsterdam and I went with 5 friends for my 30th birthday. The boat was beautiful and exactly as it was described in the listing. The neighborhood was quiet and not touristy, but close enough to some great bars and restaurants, and only a 15 min walk to the centre. It really was a great location, with the Rijksmusem a 5 min walk away.
The boat itself had everything you would need and I was pleasantly surprised to find a supply of shampoo, conditioner, body lotions, as well as towels and a hairdryer.
Jeffrey was a great host. He met us at the boat at a time convenient to us, explained a bit about the boat and the local area, then left us to it. During the weeks before my holiday he was extremely helpful.
I very much plan to visit Amsterdam again in the future and I will definitely be contacting Jeff and his lovely boat!
Beautiful house boat. 5 of us stayed 2 nights, and it was very comfortable. A great novelty for our first time in Amsterdam... will likely book a flat next time and save some money.
Jeff was very nice and helpful! Houseboat was amazing and the location was perfect! I'd definitely stay here again. :)
Muy buena experiencia! Jeffrey coordinando todos los aspectos para que no tengamos inconvenientes al llegar ni al salir. Ambientes amplios. Muy acogedores. Todo lo necesario para pasar bien. Transportes a mano. Bien ubicado!
Nous avons été accueilli avec beaucoup de gentillesse à l'heure que nous avions fixé

I'm Jeff, and I'm a Canadian born and raised son of two Portuguese parents, that has lived in the Netherlands for the last 6 1/2 years. Simple, right? :-) My two favourite things in the world are travelling and playing sports. My favourite holiday so far was my trip to Nepal and my favourite sport is basketball. I also coach a womans team aside from currently playing myself.
As an avid traveller, I understand the importance of a well maintained and clean accommodation. I aim to offer the familiar comfort of home, while exploring Amsterdam. I look forward to meeting you.
