LOCATION

The apartment is situated on the Prinseneiland. I will give you some information about our location in relation to the rest of the city.

First of all, our neighborhood is still part of the Centre of Amsterdam. It is a very quiet and safe 'little village' right next to the 'busy' part of the city. There are still a few little shipyards but most of the warehouses are converted into residences. The city is more or less built in circles around the centre. We are the western part of the centre, nearby Central Station. That is at this moment I think the most popular part.

Next to our apartment lies the famous Jordaan. The Jordaan is a small part of the city, famous for the narrow streets with little shops, cafes and restaurants. We are divided from the Jordaan by a very nice shopping street. In this street there are two normal supermarkets (open 8AM/10PM), bakeries, a butcher and two organic supermarkets. There are all kind of shops, cafés, nice little restaurants everywhere around us.

We think Amsterdam is more a “big village”. That is, the part where you want to be as a visitor. You can walk everything, but certainly on the bike everything is really nearby.

The address is Prinseneiland 10, Amsterdam if you want to look it up on Google Maps. The street view is still from the period we were building, a few years ago. But one of the pictures you can click shows the finished building.

Walking distance to the Central Station 15 minutes (bike 7 minutes), Jordaan 10 minutes (bike 5 minutes), Dam 17 minutes (bike 10 minutes), and Rijks Museum / Van Gogh / Stedelijk Museum (contamporary/modern art) 35 minutes (bike 20 minutes), Anne Frank Museum 10minutes (bike 5 minutes).

If you want to explore more of the city we have bikes for rent and there are trams and buses to all parts of the city at a 4-minute walk. Apart from the general maps that we provide, we also made a map of our neighbourhood. A selection of breakfast-/lunch-places/restaurants/supermarkets is pointed out on this map. We also have “around the corner” a few very nice and good restaurants. We are happy to advise you and/or make reservations for you.

WOW !!!

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, better than we expected.

Good location, right on the corner of two canals, with a table and chairs outside. Fully equipped and exceptionally clean.

Lots of bright, open space. Loved the large sliding doors.

Attention paid for child safety too!

The hosts are genuinely caring and kind.

Would definitely stay again.

Relaxing , comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the stay during the kids spring break. Wouter was very kind and made sure that we had everything we needed. Loved looking at the canals in the morning. It was very quiet, which is how we like it. The closest grocery stores are about 20 minutes away by walk . The home had all the needed items. There is only one toilet which is a tad bit small if you are over 5 ft 7 since your knees touch the door.

Great place if you like the peace and quiet and yet close to the center by walk / bike.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just returned from our stay in the Boat House! We Loved it! Wouter and Liesbeth are very welcoming and helpful. The home has everything we needed- and it was very clean and well cared for. They provided a cell phone for us to use, maps, brochures and recommendations for shopping and eating. They had snacks and a bottle of wine chilled for us. There are plenty of towels and face cloths too. Wouter was very responsive and answered all my questions many times before we travelled to the Netherlands. We had never been out of the US and Wouter and Liesbeth were so caring and available! We truly hope to visit again and would love to rent from them. The area is extremely safe, and easy to walk to! The home is at the junction of 2 canals and we enjoyed watching the boats. Before we left, Liesbeth kindly arranged for a taxi for us to the airport. Excellent experience and vacation rental!

A year later and we still talk about it!

  • 5 of 5

It's been just a year, and as I prepare for our next trip I realize that I missed submitting a review. This place is a gem. Clean and the owners are lovely and helpful. Everything you need is provided. There is a great sense of style. There is a view. We had a short walk to all the action but it was quiet and refreshing to come home to. I would go back in a heartbeat.

Beautiful Boathouse in Awesome Amsterdam!!!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at the boathouse was the highlight of our visit! We started a 3-week biking adventure with 5 days in this charming hideaway on the water, just a 5-10 minute walk to Central Station. This home is sized perfectly for 2 couples. It is clean, perfectly designed, and delightfully situated! Wouter is an excellent homeowner who takes pride in his property and is helpful and very good to his guests. We are walkers and loved wandering around his island and the quick walk over to the heart of the city! We highly recommend this home to all. We will be back! Thank you, Wouter!!!
