About this listing
The big bedroom, sleeps up to 8. Newly redecorated and painted, to give that unique boatfeeling.
Do you wish to get back to the 60`s? Here is your chance, grab it with both hands and experience Amsterdam the hippy way!
This wonderful houseboat is situated only 15 minutes from the centre and even less (7 minutes) from Schiphol Airport. Across the house you have a large green area where you can walk and enjoy the silence before the storm; Amsterdam. Also, only two hundred meteres from your porch you will find your own private beach! For a super cheap price you can rent a small boat and have a nice ride on the very same lake. This lake and the canal where the houseboat is situated is directly connected to the canals within the centre of Amsterdam. So if you are proficient with small boats you can even go to the centre of Amsterdam by yourself.
The houseboat itself is quite unique. It has been a safe haven for many artists, dj`s, writers, poets and other creative people of Amsterdam and outside of Amsterdam. In fact the landlord (who stays in one of the rooms of the houseboat, and makes use of the kitchen and bathroom is as original 'Amsterdam guy' as you can get. He knows all the ins and outs of Amsterdam and is a lovely guy in general. He will definitely help you out with everything you need!

The 'Dreamboat' is perfect for large groups - in our case, a stag party. A short bus ride from the airport, there is plenty of space, comfortable beds and room outside for BBQ and beers. If the sun is shining, make sure you go for a swim in the canal! Carlos and Patti were great hosts and made sure we had everything we needed.
We were made to feel very welcome by our host Pippa, & Carlo who lives on the houseboat also (in a separate section).
They were terrific in giving us a wonderful introduction to Amsterdam. They explained the public transport options, recommended some places to visit and gave us an impromptu boat tour on the canals of Central Amsterdam. They was always someone available to our group to answer any questions we had.

The dreamboat was the perfect venue for the stag party we had envisioned and so much more. Our hosts Carlos and his friend Ricardo were very welcoming and partied with us a lot of the time but we're never intrusive on us doing our own thing. Five stars!
