Overview

About the property

Family-houseboat, 2BR, centrally located with sunny terrace in trendy district

We are centrally located in one of the hippest and trendy districts: Oud West. You will find yourself close to the historic centre, the museum district (Rijksmuseum, van Gogh), Anne Frank house, Jordaan, Vondelpark. We have some good restaurants at walking distance. Back at the houseboat, you will find yourself in a peaceful place, out of the hectic of the center.

You'll love it!!!

It has a large living room with a great view on the water and direct access to our very sunny terrace. If you don't feel like wondering through the city: enjoy your morning coffee watching the sun glistering in the water, swans and ducks go by.

We have a very nice terrace with a big dining table, to have your breakfast or lunch outside in the sun.

Our houseboat sleeps 4 persons maximum.

There are 2 bedrooms, one with a double bed (180x200cm) and one with two single beds (each 90x200cm). Access to the second bedroom is THROUGH the room with the double bed. Both having a direct view on the water.

I provide bedlinnen and towels.

The bathroom offers a warm bath, very relaxing after a day's stroll through the city, as well as a hot shower.

There is CENTRAL HEATING everywhere in the boat.

Fast WIFI included.

Our houseboat is situated on the border of the historical center. You are in between locals, but restaurants, bars, museums are around the corner. Actually the area we live in has quite a few of its own, so nothing is far away. I like to cook, our kitchen offers everything to be a real Jamie Oliver ;). There is even a specialized wine shop around the corner and a night supermarket in case you run out after regular opening hours.

You are staying in a residential area. That means your neighbours are not on vacation, but working and going to bed early. So please keep noise to a minimum.

About Anouk

Hi I am Anouk-Barbara. I am a mother of three beautiful kids. I love living on our houseboat. It gives me such a sense of freedom. It is a privilege watching the swans go by. You will also see the gracious grebe or an occasional majestic cormorant.

Once you have stayed on a houseboat you will never forget the sight of the sun sparkling in the water and making a golden glistering fairytale on the ceiling.

I love beautiful food and a good cup of coffee. In my neighbourhood there are some very nice restaurants.

An amazing experience in a unique setting!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location for our family trip! There are grocery stores nearby along with tram and bus stops and an ice cream shop. My 2 young daughters (7 & 9) had no trouble walking to restaurants and exploring Amsterdam from the boat. All 4 of us agree the boat experience was unique and fun. Having a full kitchen and separate bedrooms meant extra comfort far above a hotel. My family would repeat our Amsterdam trip a hundred times. Huge thanks to our hosts who were helpful and friendly!!!

Most Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Perfect retreat with the family. There is something peaceful about being on the water. Barbara was fantastic, the boat was clean, and everything was in order. The location is ideal with plenty of restaurants within walking distance. My kids loved the playgrounds that were near by. The trolley is right there too.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the boat. Recommend without a doubt.

Can't beat a houseboat in Amsterdam!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house is great, just across from a supermarket, near the tram stop. The house was clean and the perfect size for our family of four. Anouk was super friendly and helpful in every way. Would recommend this houseboat fully!

Stylish, original, and unforgettable!

  • 5 of 5

4 friends joined for a reunion in this awesome city, at this awesome property! We had loads of fun! The owners' attention to details, giving accurate and clear directions to the houseboat, and accommodating our request for early check-in/late check-out (subject to availability) exceeded our expectations! We are thankful for sharing their super cool and original property, conveniently located near transportation, restaurants, and grocery stores... Thanks for making sure the houseboat was comfy and had everything we needed... Thank you for making our short stay in Amsterdam unforgettable!

Nice houseboat well situated

  • 5 of 5

Very nice location, clean, well situated on crossing of 2 tram lines, one to mid-town, the other to museums area. Anouk is lovely, she was present at in- boarding, and solved very quickly a minor problem, as well as out-boarding.

We had a very nice week-end at Amsterdam.

Beautiful houseboat on a quiet canal

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat was everything we could have asked for and more! The owner was helpful and would check in to make sure all of our needs were met every not and then. Everything in the houseboat was clean and we had no complaints. It is located in a perfect spot in Amsterdam, being on a quiet canal that is not far from the center of the city. It is also located a short walking distance from a few different bike rental spots to make navigating Amsterdam easy! We thoroughly enjoyed waking up and looking out the window to see one of the beautiful canals of Amsterdam. If you're looking for the true Amsterdam experience, this houseboat is the way to go!
