About the property

Pantheos houseboat is located on one of the best spots on the water in centre.

My houseboat when not rented out is my home. The boat has been in my family for more than 25 years and is located on one of the best spots down town in the Jordaan area. Everything is walking distance and the biggest + is the outside deck to enjoy all year long.

My houseboat has all mod cons. Over the past 5 years I have had many satisfied customers, I do the check in and cleaning myself aswell as all correspondance.

Welcome onboard in Amsterdam !!

Why stay anywhere else?

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt staying on this charming, quirky and beautiful houseboat enhanced our trip to Amsterdam 100%.

We felt like locals waving to all the tourists in the tour boats floating by as we sat drinking coffee ( or wine! ) at night.

The owner Fake, is thoroughly charming and very helpful with lots of suggestions and ideas for places to go. We so appreciated the bottle of wine and the beers in the fridge. The fresh tulips were a lovely touch too!!

The houseboat itself is spotless and has absolutely everything you would expect in a well equipped kitchen ( great espresso machine!) To be honest we didn't cook at all as we ate out at the local restaurants/Bistros or just had wine and cheese.

There was lashings of hot water and it was toasty warm inside. This was a big concern of my husbands as it was January. But no worries on this score!! It really does check all the boxes.

The bed is comfortable, lovely duvets and gently rocking occasionally at night meant we slept like a log.

My one piece of advice would be don't spend too much time going too far at night. This area is full of great bars and restaurants within minutes and don't take the Canal tour. You have your very own prime spot to watch it all.

This is one vacation spot we intend to return too soon.

Cosy little houseboat

  • 5 of 5

Fake the owner of the boat is very hospitable, friendly & welcoming. His houseboat is very clean and comfortable and in an excellent location. The Jordaan is such a beautiful area. We just like to sit on the boat terrace and watch the world go by. Lots of lovely restaurants close by. We are so looking forward to our next stay here!

3 nights on the Pantheos Houseboat

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our first visit to Amsterdam. We loved the city and found that staying on Fake's lovely houseboat really added to our overall experience. It was so lovely to stay right on the canal, in a very convenient location for the multitude of places to visit- especially the Ann Frank House, which should be a 'must visit' place for everyone! Fake was a great host, with a very relaxed attitude, who made us feel really welcome as guests on his boat. We would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. Many thanks once again Fake. Chris and Sue.

Perfect gem on the water

  • 5 of 5

Amazing little boat sitting on a beautiful canal in the heart of Amsterdam. Wish I had more time to just sit on the deck listening to the awesome vinyl collection watching the canal boats go by, but the city is right there waiting to be explored. Fake is a great host and the houseboat is cozy and comfortable. Thanks!

The best spot in all of Amsterdam from which to see the city.

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat was exactly as advertised yet more adorable and comfortable than we had imagined. In the best area of the city to get to the sights - the Anne Frank House is down the street. In all our travels we've never had a more gracious host and inn-keeper than Fake - he went above and beyond. We left feeling we were saying goodby to a friend. We're already telling people to look into staying at his place when they go to Amsterdam. We definitely intend to do that for sure.
