This lovely houseboat is is well located in a neighborhood called “Oud West”. It’s just a short walk from many restaurants, cafes and shops, and within walking distance of Dam square
The neighborhood is the perfect base for experiencing all that Amsterdam has to offer with it's fantastic cafes, restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Oud West is a vibrant multicultural area and is located very close to the city centre. From your doorstep it's just a 2 minute walk to the area of "Jordaan", that oozes atmosphere with its narrow streets, picturesque canals, brown cafes, art galleries and unique shops.
The city center is on walking distance.
If you don't feel like walking, there is a tram stop around the corner, so the city center and the airport are easy to reach.
Unfortunately parking is quite expensive in our neighborhood, but if you don't need your car during your stay I can recommend cheaper places on the border of town.
If you are interested in renting a bicycle during your stay let me know. I can have them delivered to the apartment for you.

Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour, le houseboat est très joli et très bien équipé. C'est lumineux, spacieux et très propre, le passage des canards donne un coté bucolique très agréable en pleine ville. Il y règne une ambiance douce et sereine.
Les nombreux commerces et restaurants à proximité, ainsi que la distance pour rejoindre le centre d'Amsterdam font de cet endroit un super point de chute pour visiter la ville.
Annelies est très sympa et de bon conseil, la location de vélos par son intermédiaire est top, les vélos nous étant déposés devant le bateau.
Nous recommandons la location de ce houseboat, et reviendrons avec plaisir visiter les quartiers que nous n'avons pas eu le temps de voir.
Staying on a houseboat was a fun and very extraordinary experience. The houseboat aviva is in very good shape, we felt home very soon. The bright and modern interior and the modern amenities (dish washer, washing machine, tumbler) made us feel very comfortable and gave us a lot of flexibility. It is great to have the center of town as well as the Vondelpark and shopping options (groceries and other things) nearby.
Annelies was very helpful and reacted very fast: she found a nearby fitness center (Jordaan Health Club, which is very recommendable and within walking distance) for us and recommended a lap swimming pool in the area.
The only negative side was the goose in the canal ... it made a rasping sound throughout the entire day and also at night (I think it was begging for food) - which sometimes kept me from sleeping.
Beautiful location, excellent neighbors (ducks and geese).
This is a unique Amsterdam experience and worth doing if you have a few days to enjoy the city.
Es una casa increíble , la ubicación es perfecta a 5 minutos andando del centro. La tranquilidad del lugar a si como los patos cisnes y ocas que están todos los días para que le eches algo de pan en el desayuno . Totalmente recomendable aun en invierno como hemos estado toda mi familia en Enero
Un appartement sur l'eau confortable, le voisinage des canards et des poules d'eau est sympathique, le quartier offre toutes les commodités pour un séjour réussi, petits déjeuner, restaurants, supermarchés, tramway, proximité des lieux à visiter tout en ayant le charme d'un quartier tranquille. Une réussite. Ponctualité et réactions des hôtes très appréciables.
We were 5 girls who stayed in this lovely houseboat. For us it was a perfect location, close to the city center but in a quiet neighborhood. It was also a big supermarket close by (3 min. walking). Every morning we got visit from the ducks, which make the experience on the boat more interesting. We also got free coffee and te which is a big plus. We never lived on a houseboat before, but we will comeback here for sure! Highly recommended!
A really wonderful place, very cozy and quiet. It’s far from all the confusion, but close enough that it doesn’t take you long to reach all the places you want to visit. The hosts are really nice and very helpful. An excellent experience overall. Would definitely return and recommend to all of my friends.
Our stay at the Houseboat Aviva was fantastic.
Our hosts were helpful and friendly, taking care of any requests (an iron) and making some fantastic local restaurant recommendations (Moeders).
The location was perfect, just off the street, close to the GVB (light rail / train), near two grocery stores, several good restaurants (Dutch, Thai, Italian) and in a quiet neighborhood. The houseboat is close enough to the center (only about 4 minutes via GVB), but far enough away to avoid the crowds and experience a typical (and enjoyable) neighborhood.
The houseboat itself was as expected...the pictures are (email hidden)fortable living room / kitchen, two nice bedrooms and a nice bathroom. Plus, the boat was always a nice temperature thanks to the heater, even in November. There was some creaking of the floor and some random wear and tear, but considering your are on a boat, this is to be expected.
It was perfect for our family (2 adults, 2 kids), very safe, lots of room and as mentioned, a lot of duck, geese, swan and bird friends.
No question, we will rent this houseboat again.
Casa spettacolare!! Abbiamo soggiornato per 4 notti in 4 persone. La casa è ampia, molto luminosa, confortevole, accessoriata per ogni necessità, ben servita dai mezzi pubblici. La proprietaria è stata molto gentile al nostro arrivo a darci le informazioni principali della (website hidden) torneremo ad Amsterdam, sicuramente torneremo in questa houseboat, ci ha entusiasmati veramente!!!
Super faon de visiter Amsterdam, tout en étant proche du centre ville avec la tranquilité et les cygnes qui viennent nous voir, merci le syndicat d'initiative, les enfants ont adoré.
