About the property

Situated in the heart of Amsterdam, this houseboat was wonderfully renovated in 2011, offering stunning views across the Amstel River from every room in the house. The spacious 'apartment' on the water itself measures 55m2, 181 square feet and accommodates 4 people, with guests number 3 and 4 sharing the sofa bed.

Only a few steps away from the one of the most popular squares in Amsterdam, Rembrandt Square.

You don't have to go anywhere to enjoy the passing boats, everything happens right in front of this houseboat.

Public transport is right in front of your doorstep, taking you to the most important museums and other sights. Shops, cafes, restaurants and clubs are in the immediate vicinity.

Smoking only out on the deck.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

We didn’t want to leave the houseboat. Far superior to any hotel experience I have had in Amsterdam. Everything clean and working, bathroom is large and functional, kitchen has everything needed. Bed was comfortable, couch bed was fine.

Would rent again next time for sure.

What a great spot!

  • 5 of 5

This place was exactly what we were expecting and more! There was quite the incident the day of our arrival, as someone knocked out the power to 28k customers in the area. It took overnight to finally get the power going, but we managed. The owner was very communicative with us and that was appreciated it. Other than that, the stay was absolutely incredible. If you like being in the action, this is definitely the spot for you. Rembrandtplein is always buzzing with activity. Yes, the boat is wide open to the canal, but who cares? There are plenty of curtains to close if you really feel like hiding from the world. No need, we actively enjoyed waving at tour boats that were streaming by the window. It was great to be able to sit outside and enjoy the sights and sounds. Everything is well appointed and functional. We would absolutely stay here again!

Car: not necessary

Overlooking the Amstel river and monumental buildings. It is surrounded by tourist attractions such as Rembrandtplein, Dam Square, and the Flower Market. Amsterdam City Center is a great choice for travelers interested in architecture, city trips and walking.

This is our guests' favorite part of Amsterdam, according to independent reviews. In this area you can shop 'til you drop for popular brands like H&M, Nike, Apple.
