Interaction with Guests
I will be available for any questions, but won't be present in the houseboat.
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 houseboat for you.
