The Romantic Houseboat is an antique boat converted in to a small but very comfortable apartment. Designed as a studio, it has a bathroom with a shower and a '' climb in to'' bedroom on the front end of the boat. The style of the house can only be discribed as uncluttered 'old amsterdam' style and it has a kitchen to relieve you from hunger.
Located only ten minutes walk from Dam square, the boat is surrounded by many restaurants, cafes, bars and markets. Rembrandt plein, Waterloo plein market and Amsterdam's Stopera (the principal opera house) are all in view from the apartment which means that even a spontaneous stroll through the nighbourhood could turn most exiting. As its a boat you get to see Amsterdam from a very unique prespective and truly enjoy the canals in a romantic way. Street musicians do choose to perform near the market due to it's creative nature so it is possible you would find yourself waking up to the sound of violins.
Choocky and Lydia have the best house boat in Amsterdam! Not only was the boat in a perfect location but Lydia was the most generous host. When we boarded the boat, Lydia was thoughtful enough to set out a nice bottle of wine and well organized maps/tourist materials to make our stay in Amsterdam absolutely fantastic. I would definitely recommend this house boat if your'e planning a romantic escape in Amsterdam. This is definitely a nice and unique way to surprise your significant other.
What a beautiful boat and an exceptional host! Lydia greeted us with a warm welcome! She had everything set up for our stay including wine, candles, and a few snacks. It was exactly what we needed after our travels. The houseboat was very cute and cozy; exactly as pictured. The location was very central and easy to move around. It was absolutely beautiful! I definitely hope to be back soon! Thanks Lydia!!!
We had a brilliant time on the house boat around new years eve! Lydia was a fabulous and very generous host, made us feel very very welcome. The boat is very cute, quiet and comfortable (and nice and warm!) It couldn't be more central, you easily walk anywhere in the centre of Amsterdam. Altogether making a great place to a city break with a difference. Definitely would recommend it and I hope to be back again soon! THANKS LYD!

Absolutely perfect! Lydia was the perfect host and made us feel at home instantly. The boat is in the best location possible, with everything on your doorstep. Inside it's beautiful, decorated to perfection, tranquil and homely. You have everything you need and more and Lydia was kind enough to show us the ins and outs. There's wifi and a big folder full of local things to do, allowing us the make the most of our time in Amsterdam. I can't recommend this houseboat enough, it really made our holiday!
This boat is for sure the best way to discover Amsterdam ! We really enjoyed our week-end thanks to Lydia who made us feel at home with surprise attentions.
The house is warm and cozy even in November and all is at 5 minutes walk.
Highly recommended !
