About Team Houseboat in Amsterdam
Hi, My name is Coleta and I am your hostess and captain of the houseboat barge. Together with my partner and our son, we are Team Houseboat in Amsterdam. We know Amsterdam by heart and we would love to help you find your way around town. We do not only speak English and French. but also speak some Spanish, Italian and German and we will go the extra mile to make your stay unforgettable.
Why Team Houseboat in Amsterdam chose De Pijp
We would love to welcome you on board of our houseboat and share with you our experience of a unique way of living in this beautiful part of our city. Your own private little quirky houseboat apartment on the Amstel. Just outside the crazy bubble of the city center in in a family friendly area in the hip and happening quarter De Pijp. How lovely.... Your houseboat apartment has a small deck and it's own entrance, free WIFI/WLAN, two cozy little sleep cabins with a double bed each, a bathroom, a toilet, a living room with a dining area and a small and simple pantry. Super cute isn't it?!?!? On top of this it is provided with free bed linen and as many towels as you need. Note that it is comfortable for maximum 4 guests max (3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children), operates on a self-service model, is therefore self catered and as it is an original ship it is less suitable for elderly or disabled people and it has its peculiarities ;)) If you want to party, smoke or do drugs, this is not the accommodation you are looking for. As it is located in a family friendly part of the De Pijp quarter: no loud activities, no smoking and no drugs in and around the houseboat. Would you love to know more about our houseboat apartment, please feel free to contact us any time.
What makes this House Boat unique
Waking up in the morning with the reflection of the sunlight on the surface of the water of the river Amstel, hearing the sound of the ducks and birds and watching the rowers passing by whilst drinking your morning coffee (or tea) or enjoying the sunset with a nice glass of wine from the private deck of this little quirky houseboat apartment.

The houseboat is right on the canal in a great location with easy access to public transportation. We got a 3 day tram card, and the stop is only a couple of blocks away from the House boat. We really felt the Amsterdam culture during our stay. The owner was terrific, and the check in and check out was very easy. The staff at the coffee shop across the street was great, and they had great breakfast, smoothies, and coffee. We would stay in the house boat again the next time we come to Amsterdam!
Great houseboat stay
Great location with roomy accommodation. Coleta was excellent to deal with and check in and out was an easy process.
A floating delight
The houseboat was great experience, one that was unique and thoroughly enjoyable. It was spotlessly clean, in a great location with shops, cafes, restaurants and public transport close by. Coleta provide excellent communications and was very responsive. We look forward to returning.
Coleta's house was everything we needed!
We had a great experience at Coleta's house boat! She was a great hostess and was right there if we needed anything. It was clean, queit and a great location with lots to do with walking distance. I would definitely stay there again on my next trip to Amsterdam! Thanks Coleta!
Das Check-in klappte problemlos, die Unterkunft war einfach, aber sehr sauber und es gab genügend Handtücher und Geschirr. Wie von anderen Gästen schon beschrieben wurde, gab es einmal Probleme mit dem warmen Wasser. Nach einem Anruf bei der Vermieterin wurde das aber umgehend repariert.
Das Boot liegt etwas ab von der Innenstadt an der Amstel und nach einem Tag in dem Touristentrubel, waren wir ganz froh dort abends wieder zur Ruhe zu kommen. Auch in der näheren Umgebung des Hausbootes gab es nette Lokalitäten, die zu Fuß am Abend gut erreichbar waren.
Von den Fenstern aus, konnte man leider nicht das Wasser sehen, da noch ein anderes Boot flussseitig davor lag, aber ein Kaffee morgens auf dem Deck war schon sehr schön.
Comfortable, fun place in a great location
The houseboat had everything we needed for our long weekend in Amsterdam. It was great staying there. It was clean and comfortable and had all the facilities we needed. Coleta was great in giving us lots of information which helped make the stay hassle free. It's in a great location - easy to access public transport and there were lots of shops and cafes nearby. I would completely recommend this as a place to stay in Amsterdam.
Thank you so much. You were such lovely guests. Hope to see you again on one of our ships.
The houseboat is located in a FAMILY FRIENDLY area on one of the best spots on the river Amstel in the Quartier Latin of Amsterdam, called De Pijp and is just a 10 to 20 minutes walk to most tourist attractions like the Rijksmuseum, the Heineken Experience, Albert Cuyp Market, the Hermitage, RAI congress centre, the old centre of Amsterdam, one of the nicest shopping area’s of Amsterdam called “Utrechtsestraat” and lots of good restaurants on the Van Woustraat.
