Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

A modern apartment with a romantic touch on a houseboat. Well renovated, clean and cosy. Tastefully decorated with great care for details. The apartment is equipped with all you could need to make it a home away from home.

The location is very close to the busy centre of Amsterdam but still in a quiet residential area. A nice place to return to after a day of exploring Amsterdam.

The houseboat has 2 separate double bedrooms; not many houseboats have this.

The kitchen is complete, so you can make the choice whether to eat out or make a home meal.

To get to central station takes about 10 minutes by bicycle and 15 minutes by foot. You can also take the bus for 1 stop.

Ferry free of charge taking you over 'het IJ' to central station 24/7, offering a beautiful view of the canal.

The patio was recently renewed and provides two areas to hang out; a place to eat at the picnic table and a place to enjoy your afternoon drinks.

Great stay and location

  • 4 of 5

While the bedrooms were small, the houseboat was in a great location but away from all the hustle and bustle, allowing for some quiet time. There were good places to eat close by and the free ferry made getting to Central Station easy.

Wonderful place. Enjoyed the space and the opportunity to have that home feeling

  • 4 of 5

The owner was great. Answered all my questions. The property is 4 stars. I like being a little out of the way at the end of the day but the ferry makes this property easy accessible. We would stay again.

Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the houseboat! It was very nice and comfortable. We loved how quiet it was after busy days in Amsterdam. It was so easy to walk to the ferry. Just a couple of blocks to the market the day after we arrived, so we're able to pick up meats, cheeses, breads, eggs to make breakfasts. Great stay!!

Quiet and convenient location. Homely and comfortable accommodation.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our home in Amsterdam and the options it gave us to eat in or out. The beds were comfortable and there was everything we needed in a modern converted houseboat. We enjoyed looking out at ducks and swans at eye level. It was a 10 minute walk to the free ferry to Central Station where we got trains to Haarlem, Schipol Airport for Keukenhof Gardens, or caught buses and canal boats to see Amsterdam. We also walked a lot and felt in 5 days we had seen most of what we had wanted to explore..

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The house boat is absolutely amazing, the perfect place for a couple or group to get away to.

The owners are super friendly and made it their objective to make sure we knew exactly where we were heading!

I am definitely coming back!

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.
