I finally did it! This brandnew houseboat is designed with you in mind. Meaning private entrance and amenities, sound proof walls and the best view in Amsterdam overlooking the Amstel River.
On the left you see the Grand Amstel Hotel and the Royal Theater Carre, opposite Amsterdam oldest rowing club.
The light is reflected over the water. Have you ever seen a Swan lifting up out of the water? Nature at its best straight in the center of the Pijp area with little restaurants and bars gallore.

The space
Staying in Amsterdam means staying in a houseboat. That is if you want that once in a lifetime oppertunity.
This boat has both. Luxury (floor heating, brandnew amenities) and the unique experience of staying at the water. The huge sliding windows can be opened fully on warm days and give you a wonderful view on the broad Amstel River. You can easily laze down in bed all day watching boats and birds pass by the window.

One wall is entirely made out of glass windows that fully open. Lighting up the room to a vibrant airy space.

Close to everything you want in Amsterdam for business or pleasure like: Van Gogh Museum, An Frank House, RAI Congress Center.

Let me sum it up for you:
- Houseboat on Amstel River with direct acces to the water, swans and rowing boats
- Big windows with magnificent view
- Brand-new everything
- Fresh linnen, fluffy towels, cute sitting area
- Power points and plugs for charging smartphones, etc.
- Free WiFi
- Powershower
- Concierge service - I can book you everything you like
- Terrace at the street side (needs an update, but the water side is nicer anyway :-) )
- Mini fridge
- Private everything
- Floor heating, double walls to prevent noise
- Centrally located in Amsterdam Pijp - area
- Great personal service

Guest access
The houseboat has a small front garden where you can park your bike or have a glass of wine in the evening sun. You have direct acces to your private room, no shared hallways or bathrooms.

Other things to note
This houseboat is newly build and therefor really good insulated, warm and comfortable!
Please be aware there is no airco in the houseboat, but the windows open fully and there is a fan for a nice breeze. Most Dutch places don't have airco.

Positive experience: This boat is for guests that want to enjoy Amsterdam in a positive way. Consider their neighbours and are interested in what the city has to offer them. Or want to stay here for business.

Guest that are looking for a place to party I can kindly refer to other places. My houseboat is not suitable for that. But you can party all you want in the City of course!

As there are many quant little places in the area you probably want to go out and explore straight away. So I won't serve you breakfast in the room. But I will give you my go-to places!

Location

Amsterdam, Noord-Holland, Netherlands

The Pijp area is known as the vibrant, trendy part of Amsterdam. In walking distance there are nice little pubs and restaurants of all sorts but also a local market with flowers and food. You can rent a boat to explore the Amstel river.
Public transport is in walking distance. Trams will take you directly to the major museums like Van Gogh and An Frank (or you can even walk). Tram 4 will take you directly to the RAI congress Center. When you book I will give you my personal restaurant guide with my favourite restaurants.

Being a traveler myself for as long as I can remember I feel I can relate to the people who are staying in my place. I’m a foodie and I love to spoil people. Building a houseboat has been a lifelong dream of mine, it has been built with you in mind so there are 2 separate rooms with a private entrance for my guests. The third room is my own and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Houseboat life is it! #houseboat712
