LOCATION

The apartment is situated on the Prinseneiland. I will give you some information about our location in relation to the rest of the city.

First of all, our neighborhood is still part of the Centre of Amsterdam. It is a very quiet and safe 'little village' right next to the 'busy' part of the city. There are still a few little shipyards but most of the warehouses are converted into residences. The city is more or less built in circles around the centre. We are the western part of the centre, nearby Central Station. That is at this moment I think the most popular part.

Next to our apartment lies the famous Jordaan. The Jordaan is a small part of the city, famous for the narrow streets with little shops, cafes and restaurants. We are divided from the Jordaan by a very nice shopping street. In this street there are two normal supermarkets (open 8AM/10PM), bakeries, a butcher and two organic supermarkets. There are all kind of shops, cafés, nice little restaurants everywhere around us.

We think Amsterdam is more a “big village”. That is, the part where you want to be as a visitor. You can walk everything, but certainly on the bike everything is really nearby.

The address is Prinseneiland 10, Amsterdam if you want to look it up on Google Maps. The street view is still from the period we were building, a few years ago. But one of the pictures you can click shows the finished building.

Walking distance to the Central Station 15 minutes (bike 7 minutes), Jordaan 10 minutes (bike 5 minutes), Dam 17 minutes (bike 10 minutes), and Rijks Museum / Van Gogh / Stedelijk Museum (contamporary/modern art) 35 minutes (bike 20 minutes), Anne Frank Museum 10minutes (bike 5 minutes).

If you want to explore more of the city we have bikes for rent and there are trams and buses to all parts of the city at a 4-minute walk. Apart from the general maps that we provide, we also made a map of our neighbourhood. A selection of breakfast-/lunch-places/restaurants/supermarkets is pointed out on this map. We also have “around the corner” a few very nice and good restaurants. We are happy to advise you and/or make reservations for you.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at The Boat House. The location was perfect. Close enough to walk to the center of the activity, but a nice, quiet place to relax at the end of the day. We really enjoyed sitting and watching the boats go by. There is a swim dock right across the canal and my husband and daughter enjoyed swimming and visiting with the locals. The Amsterdam residents are very friendly. I highly recommend staying here.

Wonderful Spot in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Boat House! The Boat House is a lovely two bedroom home. The bedrooms are downstairs and the living area is on the 2nd floor. The living area is spacious, bright and overlooks the canal. I spent quite a bit of time sitting with the windows open watching people and boats. Wouter, the owner, was very helpful to us. He lives next store to the boat house. He gave us a tour of the canals in his boat-such a delightful time. The boat house is close to the busses and trams. There were several grocery stores nearby. The boat house is within walking distance to the Royal Palace. It really is in a great, quaint location. I would highly recommend it!

Beautiful Home. Wonderful Location.

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, comfortable and lovely. It had everything we needed to prepare simple meals. There were thoughtful added touches like umbrellas and slippers.

It was only a short walk to reach Public transportation. The views from the windows were beautiful and entertaining. It was a perfect vacation location.

WOW !!!

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, better than we expected.

Good location, right on the corner of two canals, with a table and chairs outside. Fully equipped and exceptionally clean.

Lots of bright, open space. Loved the large sliding doors.

Attention paid for child safety too!

The hosts are genuinely caring and kind.

Would definitely stay again.
