Your home very far from home - A romantic an authentic gettaway -
Discover the real Amsterdam! Blend in with the locals! Situated within 5 minutes walking distance from Amsterdam Central Station and in that most beautiful and typical of Amsterdam neighborhoods, De Jordaan, lies a cosy and romantic houseboat. Around the corner of the Noorderkerk, famous for its markets (ecological market on saturday, vintage market on monday), the Haarlemmerdijk (voted nicest shopping street of 2011) and the Westerpark (beautiful park with restaurants and cafes), you can stay here for a bargain to discover a less touristy Amsterdam. Immerse yourself in the city life and find peace in the houseboat. We renovated this monumental sloop with love and its perfect for a couple.
Double bed, living room, wifi,kitchen with oven and stove, hot water, nice and warm gas heater, bathroom with shower, toilet, hair dryer and washing machine and ofcourse a beautiful view of the 17th century canals, part of the UNESCO world heritage. Only 10min walking from the Anne Frank house and Dam square.
Amsterdam Central Station is only 5 minutes away.
Towels and linen will be provided for you.
Handle with love. No smoking inside.
Simone was a pleasure to work with and her houseboat was delightful! We enjoyed four nights aboard her boat. The neighborhood serves as a great base for exploring The Jordaan, Nine Streets and the Western Canals. It is also a very easy walk to all tram lines. The boat is basic but very charming. The kitchen was well equipped to prepare the delicacies purchased at the Noordmarkt or from specialty stores around the corner on Haarlemmerstraat. The pictures represent the boat well and the size was perfect for the two of us. Thank you to Simone for opening her home to us and letting us a get a feel of being an AMsterdam resident.
We spend four wunderfull days in Amsterdam. Bedroom and livingroom were beatiful and comfortable and realy warm. Located central in the city in a wonderful area. We are not created for living on a houseboat, but the entry to the boat and the bathroom are really uncomfortable and bad, but not unclean. One of the windows is leaky. The rent ist high enough to renovate the bathroom and the windows.
simone couldn't welcome us herself but a lovely friend of her gave us a lovely welcome! Flexible and a clear quick introduction and some nice tips to go out for dinner and other nice places in the neigberhood.
Me and Jamie had a relaxing and romantic break on simones houseboat and loved the surrounding area !! Set in a perfect location for our first visit to Amsterdam the boat was clean and made with love. The only bad thing about the boat is the toilet up the step and the low water pressure in the shower but these things can't really be avoided on a houseboat I suppose. We had a lovely stay however and would recommend staying on the boat.
Check-in with Simone was very easy, communication was great.
The pictures of the houseboat are accurate and staying here is a very unique experience.
Close to the nicest cafes and restaurants make the location perfect for sightseeing Amsterdam.
The heater works good but I'm sure experiencing the canal feeling in summer time is even more exciting.
Het bootje van Simone was in 1 woord de max! Zo gezellig ingericht en heerlijk warm terwijl het buiten aan het vriezen was... Wij hebben 2 avonden heerlijk gekookt en twee dagen volop genoten van deze unieke verblijfplaats.
Nous avons passé un super week end à bord de la péniche de Simone. Elle est très bien située, près de la gare mais dans un quartier calme et agréable, avec de nombreux bars et restaurants à quelques minutes de marche.
L'intérieur est confortable et bien chauffé. Simone était très accueillante et nous a donné tous les renseignements nécessaires pour passer un séjour réussi.
