Overview

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.

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."

Live like a local

  • 5 of 5

My husband, two grown daughters and I spent 4 nights in this 2-bedroom canal boat in June. The property was well furnished and equipped--we especially enjoyed the coffee. The bathroom description is a little unclear so, for you Americans, there is a spacious room with a great shower, sink, lots of cabinets and counter space and a second room with the toilet and a small sink. The experience of staying in a real neighborhood far outweighed the time it took to walk to the ferry and make the crossing to the main train station. Good Italian restaurant and 3 cafes are short walk away--look out for the bikes!

Great stay and location

  • 4 of 5

While the bedrooms were small, the houseboat was in a great location but away from all the hustle and bustle, allowing for some quiet time. There were good places to eat close by and the free ferry made getting to Central Station easy.

Wonderful place. Enjoyed the space and the opportunity to have that home feeling

  • 4 of 5

The owner was great. Answered all my questions. The property is 4 stars. I like being a little out of the way at the end of the day but the ferry makes this property easy accessible. We would stay again.

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.
