Beautiful houseboat located at a quiet and peaceful location in the heart of Amsterdam. There is no better way to stay in Amsterdam than on a typical Amsterdam houseboat right on the canals. Lovely, calm and relaxed place to return to after a long day of sight seeing. Cosy and warm place to spend christmas and new years eve. The houseboat is located next to the vibrant Jordaan area with its nice cafes, good restaurants, plenty of shops and special boutiques. 5 minute walking distance from Anne Frankhouse and the Dam square. 10 minute walk from the Central Station. 15 minute walk from the Leidsche square, Rijksmuseum, Vondelpark and Van Gogh Museum.

Very welcoming hosts. Fantastic neighbourhood -- close to everything and yet quiet. Living on a boat a unique experience.
Hi Hugo & Lieke ! Thanks for your kindness. The decoration and the furnitures are very tasty. The place on Jourdan district is perfect. I will come back and recommand. Best regards.
My Husband and I stayed on Hugo & Lieke's houseboat for 2 nights in August 2014. It had a lovely homely feel. It had everything we needed and was in a great location, very close to the centre with easy access to the restaurants, trams and tour boats. We would highly recommend this houseboat to anyone wanting a nice comfortable romantic stay in Amsterdam.
The boat was great, with lot of comforts and placed in a really nice neighborhood. Hugo and Lieke are helpful and nice and our stay was beautiful. Would recommend it!
This houseboat is the best place I ever stayed in Amsterdam. We really enjoyed the sun on top of the roof while having the typical surrounding of Amsterdam. Being that central and at the same time having such a calm atmosphere is incredible.
The most wonderful space to hang out in whilst in Amsterdam. Loved the boat, felt really at home. Great location on a quiet canal but still really central. I'll miss it.
We stayed on Hugo & Lieke's houseboat in December 2013 for 2 nights for my boyfriends birthday and it was amazing! It was so beautiful with such a lovely homely feel to it and had everything we needed as well as a great location too. Would highly recommend this houseboat to anyone wanting a nice comfortable romantic stay in Amsterdam.
