We were able to build our dream. A unique, modern and comfortable houseboat of 35 x 6 meters. We designed an independent private studio in the bow of the boat that can be your's for a few days. So you can share our experience of living the good life on the water. My husband Michael and I live on the other side of the boat.

The space
The nautical boutique style studio is situated in the bow of houseboat "Tasmania". You get your own private space with a private entrance and en-suite bathroom with great shower and toilet. It has underfloor heating and is cosy and warm in the wintertime.

From the bed, you can look at the stars or the full moon. On the private deck you can enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset and the beautiful row of old seventeenth century warehouses.
The Tasmania lies at the edge of the city centre in the old woodharbor, a secret hideaway just around the corner of the bustling city centre. Quiet and beautiful, it is situated in the heart of the architectural redeveloped waterfront of Amsterdam.

- 5 minute walk to Jordaan neighborhood, the lovely canal district and the most popular shopping street of 2012: the Haarlemmerstraat.

Where you’ll be

Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands

We live in a sheltered harbour just minutes away from the city centre. In the summer we see the sun rise on the port side and the sun set on the starboard side. You can enjoy the sun here alle day. We swim here all summer long and paddle our kayaks. There is also a lot of paddle boarding going on (we don't own one) and lot's of mall boats passing by. There are 2 electrical boat rentals very nearby.

Many guests have asked: "What was this boat before you reconverted it?" The answer is simple: it didn't exist. It was custom build. In October 2011 the "Tasmania" arrived in Amsterdam. Our dream came true and we would love to share that dream with you. We are hard working film and television professionals. Before building this boat we used to travel a lot. Now every day feels like a holiday. When we are at home we'll be happy to welcome you and tell you everything you want to know about Amsterdam and the boat. But most of the time we're out working. It will make your stay more private. We hope the studio apartment appeals to people who like to travel independent, just like us. Favorite travel destination: Namibia Favorite movies: De Rouille et d'Os, Heat, Das Weisse Band and many more. Favorite Filmfestival: International Documentary Festival Amsterdam (IDFA) Favorite Music Festivals: Amsterdam Dance Event, North Sea Jazz Festival Favorite books: Story of a Life by Paustovsky, Innumeracy by Paulos Favorite food: Mediterranean Favorite drink: wine, wine, wine. Soon finishing studies at the Wineacademy
