Authentic houseboat, chilled, very comfy, with a log fire and a cat. 5 min with public transport to central station and famous canal area, bubbling bars. Nice flowery garden, bonfire and BBQ. I love to share my home with you. Welcome!

The space

15 minutes walk from Central Station and 1 minute to public transport.

Please read: You share the boat with your super-relaxed hostess Sietske, but have your own key, free to come and go as you please, have a drink or smoke around the kitchen table in front of the homely log burner, or breakfast in the sunny garden; living like a real Amsterdammer.

The location describes it self the best like a gypsy style boat community. It is one of the latest so called rough edges if the city center where not everything is regulated and the boat people have free spirits.
It is a very green street and making a bonfire is most appreciated and highly recommended.
At night it is quiet and you will feel the slow rocking of the boat and the sound of water. It is an amazing experience!

A private double room with wash basin and toilet and comfortable double bed sleeps two guests, sharing the shower room, living room and kitchen with Sietske, and an additional two guests can be accommodated on the comfortable big double bed in the living room. The living room door will only be openend by the guests, to provide your privacy.
The bedroom of Siet is on the opposite of the separate guest room. There is 17 meters in between.

Your booking includes bed linen, towels, coffee and tea making facilities, use of the kitchen, Wi-Fi, firewood and a city map.

Bikes are for rent at € 8.50 per 24 hours and for an additional € 8.50 per person, Sietske will rustle up a tasty breakfast of Dutch eggs with bacon and cheese, orange juice, coffee, tea, jam and the real Dutch bread.

You may meet Boobie, the affectionate outdoor cat, occasionally in residence, but note that there is no litter box on board.

On your arrival I will draw on a map lots of tips and nice place for you to go to you.
A lovely walk away you will be in the famous Jordaan area. Full of unique vintage shops, cafe's and neighborhood markets.

Please note that the central heating is a wood burner, there are additional electric heaters.

Welcome on board!

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole boat, like living room, kitchen, shower and garden.

Interaction with guests

This BnB is welcoming to travelers from all over the world to experience life on a houseboat. People feel at home as if they are boat owners during their stay. There are no specific expectations like being quiet or a curfew. As it happens when I am on board I love to share a talk and a drink together, but it is also possible that I am out, enjoying time with friends or working. Houseboat Tante Piet is like a home with every other couple of days different owners.

Other things to note

Check-in, please advise me in advance of your time of arrival. I will be on board to welcome you and provide you with a key, Wi-Fi and a city map with my personal recommendations about markets, vintage shops, musea, restaurants and bars.

"Tante Piet" is a charming and cosy houseboat with a great location. It is well equipped, spotlessly clean, and comfortable. With the lovely and gracious host Sietske making you feel instantly welcome and at home, I would highly recommend Sietske and Tante Piet to anyone. My stay has been a great pleasure. Thank you Sietske.

Adorable host & houseboat. Sietske was a perfect host and made my friend and I feel like we were part of her circle of friends..what a wonderful feeling being so far from home. I now want to live in my own houseboat! A great way to enjoy Amsterdam. And her super sweet cat was a warm bonus!

Staying at Sietske's houseboat was a dream come true for our honeymoon. Our space was clean and very comfortable and her houseboat is so cute and cozy. She gave us really great recommendations on what to do while we were in Amsterdam including a wonderful bar just down the road and a place to stop to get the best apple pie! Her cat (Boobie!
