Modern and recently refurnished apartment on a Houseboat in Amsterdam

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Space 55 m²
Property type house boat
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

A modern apartment with a romantic touch on a houseboat. Well renovated, clean and cosy. Tastefully decorated with great care for details. The apartment is equipped with all you could need to make it a home away from home.

The location is very close to the busy centre of Amsterdam but still in a quiet residential area. A nice place to return to after a day of exploring Amsterdam.

The houseboat has 2 separate double bedrooms; not many houseboats have this.

The kitchen is complete, so you can make the choice whether to eat out or make a home meal.

To get to central station takes about 10 minutes by bicycle and 15 minutes by foot. You can also take the bus for 1 stop.

Ferry free of charge taking you over 'het IJ' to central station 24/7, offering a beautiful view of the canal.

The patio was recently renewed and provides two areas to hang out; a place to eat at the picnic table and a place to enjoy your afternoon drinks.

Lovely houseboat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on the houseboat! Such a cool, unique experience. Would recommend for anyone looking for a quiet, cozy stay. Fully stocked kitchen was great for cooking. We liked that the ducks and swans would come up to the windows in the morning.

Fantastic experience - Great host

  • 5 of 5

Arrived centraal station and immediate ferry to the other side. Easy 12 min walk to the houseboat & lovely greeting by Sander the host. Home from home. You dont require anything...even umberellas!!! Lovely quiet location & the rain on the houseboat was soothing. 100% recommend to get away from the madnesz of the hustle. The houseboat is spotlessly clean & warm. Full option to cook as everything is just like your own kitchen. So a big thank you for allowing us on your houseboat Sander. Fantastic experience.

Note: the main bin at the end of your stay is left at the end of the street.

Definitely not where I would stay again.

  • 2 of 5

The best thing I can say is it was clean. The bedrooms were small. Even if I wanted to look at the canal, there was no view. The house boat faced an industrial area. It was a good 12 minute walk from the ferry to the house boat, 25 minutes with luggage. Away from the main part of Amsterdam center.

Owner's Response: I am sorry we could not live up to your expectations. Holland is in the top of most population densities in the world. Houses maybe tend to be smaller than what you are used to. Please read all the information on the website. We tried to be very precise in our description. Also read the reviews of our previous guests. This will give you a thorough idea of our property. The comment about the 12 minute walk with luggage feels unfair. Below a section of our route description we send to all our guest. "It could be better to take a taxi depending on your condition, number of bags, the weather, the time of day, travelling with small children or elderly, jetlag, etc. A 12 minutes’ walk can turn into a nightmare for some people."

Amterdam Central Station

Car: not necessary

Located in a quiet residential area. It's a 10 minutes walk to the free ferry (runs 24 hours a day) which takes you in a couple of minutes straight to the Central station right in the middle of the city. From here all the major attractions of Amsterdam like the Anne Frank House, van Gogh museum etc. are easy to reach by bus or tram. The best way is however to rent bikes to move around like the locals.
