Enjoy a unique experience on the funkiest boat in town located in the best neighborhood on one of the prettiest canals. Our quaint bohemian houseboat is full of artistic flair with all the comforts of home. Great for couples.
This is a very unusual and funky place so it may not appeal to everyone's taste. The space is perfect for 2 people or a family of 3. It is a small boat with low ceilings, but once you get cuddled inside it is extremely comfortable with all the modern amenities plus spectacular views on the canal out every window. We have a large outside decks on the canal and street sides (rare on houseboats) adorned with beautiful flowers and plants. The interior of the boat has "funky" bright colors, cool lighting and lots of visual candy.
Guests will have access to the entire home including high-speed wireless internet, cable TV, stove top, microwave and small toaster oven, Nespresso Coffee machine, Phillips Juicing machine and mixer, hot water pot for tea, full kitchen and bathroom supplies and a 'welcome' supply of small food and drink items for their arrival.
Interaction with Guests
Guests will be greated by a member of our staff upon arrival who will explain how everything works on the boat and answer any questions. We can shop for you and fill your refrigerator before you arrive with your favorite things, prepare a tour plan for you or answer any questions you might have.
It is widely agreed that the Jordaan is one of, if not THE best neighborhood in Amsterdam. It has lovely canals, great shopping, galleries and restaurants, weekly street markets and easy access to all the tourist sights in Amsterdam. Guests can enjoy a 'walking holiday' as attractions are easily reached on foot, or rent a bike just around the corner. Views across the canals and bridges are sprinkled with beautiful churches and amazing Dutch architecture. If location, location, location is your wish in Amsterdam, this is the rental for you.
There is a tram stop and taxi stand within 5 minutes walk from the houseboat. Bike rentals equally as close. It's a fantastic central location while still feeling "quaint" and outside the massive tourist attractions.
Other Things to Note
Sleeping arrangements are as follows: A queen-sized bed for 2 people in the main room which includes kitchen, living and dining areas. A third person can sleep on the small single bed in the 2nd room which includes the bathroom and office area adjacent to the back deck.
Smoking OK outside on the verandahs. Pets can be considered. 3 adults maximum (it will be cramped with 3, better with 2) this is not for large groups.
this was an amazing stay for our little family of three. the boat itself has a real bohemian charm and character, it is small but there is a place for everything and an amazing attention to detail.
just a quick tip, dont bring large suitcases, there isnt much storage available!
our seven yeah old daughter fell in love with it online and was even more impressed face to face.
the location of the boat is perfect. in the midddle of the jordan and very near to the anne frank house which is a handy landmark to name when travelling by tram or bus.
Thank you Kelli for your wonderful review, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We do have a closet with hanging space in the 2nd bedroom where I usually store my large suitcase, or 2 medium ones, and there is a drawer and a dresser in the main room by the bed. There is an additional very large space underneath the window seat where we store extra pillows. In the future, if any guests have lots of luggage we could empty this space and there would surely be enough room to store large or extra luggage. Thanks for the tip, we'll follow your advice… and come visit us again anytime !
This is an excellent houseboat in a prime location just outside the real hustle of the city center. Great attention to detail of the design on the interior, notice something different every time you look at a different part.
Short taxi from central station or 10-15min walk. Enough restaurants/cafes/bars in the immediate area to keep you going and Anne Franks is just down the road.
Would say the ideal number of guests is 2-3 there's two rooms on the boat one living, one bathroom/study/ single bed. Plenty of room for 2. And all the amenities you could need - fridge, cooker, tv, radio.
All in all a really good boat,very welcoming, excellent location and value. Thanks Jody
This houseboat is absolutely amazing. It's more than a place to stay, it's a beautiful work of art in an of itself. It had everything I needed for a lovely week in amsterdam. The location was superb, as it was close enough to the city center to be extremely convenient, but just far enough out that it was relatively quiet at night and easy to get a good night of sleep. Check in and out was easy, and Jody's local friend who checked me in was very flexible and communicative. Overall: really great experience.
We had a great time staying on the boat for the weekend. The location was great and the boat was lovely and cosy. We text Anna when we were leaving the airport and were greeted at the boat with keys and answers to any questions we had. They were very flexible with our check in times as we had an early fight so were able to check in a little early. The boat has everything on it you would need and there was milk and water in the fridge when we arrived. The location is great and there was a information pack on there with tips about where to eat, hire bikes and other handy things. Great weekend and would throughly recommend anyone stay there!
wow! amazing. maybe the best stay yet. this home has so much character and is perfectly located. trying to figure out when i can get back.
The boat is fantastic, in the best area of Amsterdam. You will have an amazing time here....It is well equipped & brilliantly decorated and the key pickup & dropoff was simple.

I am an avid traveller and dreamer in search of a perfect place to call "home" and was blessed enough to find Bali and my magical house here. I am a closet interior designer and love to collect bright artwork and funky lights, this house is a never ending "art work" for me and a place I can recharge, express my creativity and get healthy with daily pampering and love. I'm also a closet workaholic and thanks to the internet I've been able to base my consultancy business right in front of the sea here in North Bali. Having spent many years on the road, I wanted to create a place you simply don't have to leave, just relax and renew... If you want to chill out and be surrounded by sea, sun and beautiful flowers... this is the place for you. You won't even need to leave the villa, it's set to take care of everything so you can just relax !
