About Team Houseboat in Amsterdam
Hi, My name is Coleta and I will be your hostess and captain of the houseboat. 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 Watergraafsmeer
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 authentic sleep cabins with a double bed each, a bathroom, a separate 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.

Unique Amsterdam Houseboat
This houseboat is a quirky, unique experience. You have to be able to go down a ladder to get into the living quarters. The sleeping berths are across from one another. We slept parents in one, teenager in the other. Our second teenager slept on the narrow sofa in the living/kitchen area (it isn’t quite a futon, and not cushy.) The ability to sit up top, outside is excellent. There are two rows of houseboats, and this one is on the inside, nearest to the street, not the water. The location is ideal, close enough to tram/metro/uber to all the things you want to see and do, but not in the a loud, crowded tourist area.
tolle Lage, fantastisch zum übernachten
We had a wonderful time on the houseboat. The location was great (by bike only a few minutes to the center). The decor is lovely and the kitchen very well equipped.
We will definitely go back here again. Of us definitely deserved 5 out of 5 stars :).
Thank you so much. You were lovely guests. We hope to welcome you and your friends again on one of our houseboats.
séjour insolite et amusant
un séjour agréable à Amsterdam, une ville à taille humaine où l'on peut flâner. avec ce plus de la péniche pour logement! un endroit très propre accueillant et agréable (il fait tout de même un peu froid avant que le chauffage ne se déclenche!). Mais l'endroit ressemble à un cocon où il fait bon se retrouver après une journée de marche. Très calme. On peut juste déplorer que tout se fasse de façon virtuelle en libre service sans rencontre humaine. Cela dit nous sommes tous les 4 enchantés d'avoir vécu une semaine sur une péniche!
Great family stay! Great host!
Thank you to Coletta. A nice place to discover!
Cozy place that surprisingly has everything you need
This place is a perfect home base for adventure travel. The beds are bigger and more comfortable than they look at first. It was great to meet the owner personally - so much fun.
A couple of notes for future renters in 2019 - the houseboat is freshly painted gray and black - no green on the boat. Also, right now, it is difficult to take the typical public transportation to Schipol airport from the houseboat because of construction on the tramways and buslines. It is still easy to get around everywhere though.
they were 5 great days, the houseboat is amazing, little but comfortable, with all you need to live. you can also feel the wood flavour. when I came back into Amsterdam I'll go again here
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.
