Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday house boat in Amsterdam City - The Black Pearl

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.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

Lovely houseboat on a quiet canal

  • 5 of 5

My husband, a very good friend, and I stayed in this lovely houseboat for a week last month. It is located in north Amsterdam - a short ferry ride across from Centraal Station. It is a working canal, so it is very quiet. A pleasant 10-12 minute walk down the canal will get you to the ferry -- and they run every 5 minutes all day. There is a grocery and a great restaurant - The Number One Café nearby. We highly recommend it. Great food and wonderful service - and very reasonable.

The unit is on two floors -- the bedrooms are on the second floor as is the entrance - the salon and kitchen are on the lower floor. There is ample room for two couples, and the separate toilet room adds to privacy. The furnishings are very peasant, and the Wifii and TV worked well. The kitchen is stocked with dishes, glassware, etc. and has a small frig and dishwasher -- the owner provided coffee which was a nice touch. It was a bit chilly when we were there, so we didn't take advantage of the tables and chairs on the deck, but would have had the weather been more accommodating.

The only recommendation I might give is to have a few more clothes hooks on the bedroom walls -- there isn't much area to keep hanging garments. Sander was very accommodating and was informative when we checked in. We couldn't recommend this lovely houseboat more highly. We had a lovely time.

Lovely little property

  • 5 of 5

Houseboat was the perfect place to stay. Located in a quiet area but within a 15 minute walk of the ferry into the centre of Amsterdam, which runs every 5 minutes. The boat was comfortable, immaculate and well equipped. The owner was very flexible with regards our arrival time and refunded our deposit promptly. If we go back to Amsterdam we will definitely look to stay here again.

Gut gelegene & schöne Unterkunft!

  • 5 of 5

Bei unserer Ankunft betrieb der Vermieter gerade ein wenig Gartenarbeit auf der Terrasse des Hausboots. Trotz unserer frühen Ankunft, die Reinigung war noch voll im gange, dürften wir unser Gepäck schon mal aufs Boot bringen. Der Vermieter begrüßte uns herzlich und erklärte uns einiges zu Amsterdam. Die Ferienwohnung macht insgesamt einen guten und gepflegten Eindruck, hier und da gibt es kleinere "Macken" die uns nicht gestört haben. An der Sauberkeit gab es nichts auszusetzen!

Vom Hausboot aus kann man in kurzer Zeit die kostenlose Fähre erreichen mit der geht es wenigen Minuten ins Zentrum. Das Boot liegt also in ruhiger Umgebung und dennoch nicht weit ab vom Schuss.

Wir haben uns mit unserer Tochter (5), hier sehr wohl gefühlt.

Weihnachten 2015

  • 5 of 5

Eine sehr schöne Unterkunft. Sehr sauber und gemütlich.

Ein Vermieter der auch am Heiligabend kommt bei Problemen.

Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen und können diese Unterkunft nur weiter empfehlen.

superbe séjour original

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné pendant 3 jours dans l'house boat. C'était très bien : propre, assez grand pour 4 avec des meubles modernes et tout ce qu'il fallait! Très bien situé, a 10 minutes d'un ferry qui nous emmène a la station centrale. Nous reviendrons ici pour notre prochain séjour a Amsterdam !

Parfait en famille!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons apprécié la maison flottante, -sur 2 niveaux- typiquement de ce coin. Nous avons montré à notre petit garçon les cygnes et canards, vus de la fenêtre du salon! A portée de main!). Le lieu est chaud, douillet, parfaitement aménagé et confortable. L'emplacement est pratique en arrivant en train: le ferry est juste derriere la gare et il n'y a que 10 minutes à pied dans un quartier calme. L'occasion de cotoyer les gens qui viennent travailler à vélo en passant sur le ferry (très fréquent -toutes les 5 minutes en journée-, et 24h/24).

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.
