2 Bedroom Apartment On Houseboat With Water Views

Houseboat apartment of 65m2 with a bright and spacious lounge. Downstairs a large bedroom with double bed (1.40x2.00) and a smaller bedroom with 2 single beds (80x1.90), very suitable for children. There is a sleeping sofa in the lounge for two in case you come with 4 adults and need some space for your feet. On deck there is a terrace. 1 Bathroom with shower and toilet. Full kitchen. View on the water from all the different rooms.

This houseboat is a steel ship of 36 meters long. It used to be a ferryboat. Over the years the ship was renovated to become a houseboat with 2 apartments. The owner lives in one apartment. The apartment where you will be staying is created recently and has a floorspace of about 65m2. The bedrooms and the living room are spacious and there is daylight in abundance.

It has central heating, hot and cold running water, toilet and shower, electricity, tv, internet, and a full kitchen. Everything you need to feel "at home".

On both ends of the ship there are terraces on the deck overlooking the water. There are swans, ducks and other birds to see most of the year. Children love to play pirate on this ship.

Peaceful boat home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I loved being on the EYE side of the river. Quiet and peaceful along the river. Easy walk to the ferry and Central Train station.

The boat was perfect with all the linens and blankets you need. Big windows make it light and airy. I was happy to see there were a few basics already on the shelf like oil, vinegar, spices, coffee and filters.

The boat is very stable and very rarely did I feel any motion .. only once really when someone went by in their small boat.

Sander also gave me a wonderful map of the nearby shopping street and the market Street, all just about 4 to 5 blocks away. Many restaurants to choose from .. either various tastes and price ranges. Two major markets for eating/cooking supplies. Beautiful walks along the river.

Next trip to Amsterdam in 2017 I hope to return.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Was very pleased with this property, much bigger than it looks in pictures. We were running late but still had someone waiting for us on arrival with keys.

The boat is a 10 min walk from the ferry, and the ferry only takes 5 mins to get to central station. With ferry's running 24 hours. Got us into central in no time!

Had a really comfortable and got our deposit back super quickly. Would really recommend to anyone wanting comfortable accommodation close to the centre

Cute houseboat - a unique way to experience Amsterdam lifestyle

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Amsterdam, and really enjoyed the experience staying in this house boat! Furnishings were comfortable and the history of the boat was fun to learn about. It may help to clarify that without bikes, it takes about 15 minutes to ferry (frequent and free) and walk over to the house boat from Amsterdam Central Station. The caretaker was very friendly and gave us many tips about the area. Thanks for letting us stay!

Abseits der Trubels

  • 5 of 5

Wenn man nach der Landkarte geht liegt die Unterkunft ziemlich weit von der City entfernt. Das dies nicht so ist, merkt man gleich auf dem ersten Weg zur Fähre. Vorbei an den interessanten Neubauten von Amsterdam Nord und den dortigen Sehenswürdigkeiten (Eye, Adam, ...) geht es innerhalb von 10min zur 24/7 Fähre (Takt tagsüber alle 5 min). Diese bringt einen direkt nach Amsterdam HBF und somit in das lebhafte Zentrum.

Das Boot liegt sehr Ruhig in einen Seitenkanal. Die Ausstattung entspricht in vollem Umfang den gemachen Angaben. Alles ist sehr sauber und gepflegt. Die Übergabe war problemlos und uns wurden sogleich die ersten wichtigen Hinweise für die Besichtigungstour gegeben.

Aus unseres Sicht nur zu empfehlen!

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.
