COZY BUT ROMANTIC APARTMENT IN CAPTAIN'S CABIN STEERING

Old Center House Boat Rental Photos and Description

Newly refurbished apartment in a small freighter docked in the harbor Houthaven.

This newly refurbished apartment is in the captain's quarters of the small freighter Dana. It is small but cozy, romantic and comfortable. The lounge in the captain's steering cabin above deck offers a beautiful 360 view of the old Houthavens (lumber harbor), the IJ (the main water way to the harbor) and the city. Below deck there is a seperate sleeping area; a dining / living area with a small, but fully equipped kitchenette; and bathroom with shower and toilet. All amenities are brand-new. There is internet connection. The apartment has its own entrance, a deck with an old fashioned fire cauldron / bbq and a second seating terrase at the end of the pier. As the boat is at the end of the pier there is very little foot traffic. It has a sense of spaciousness and is a sea of ​​tranquility. A great place to relax and watch ships of all sizes and swans come by while the boat gently rocks. Free bicycles (subject to 50 euro deposit) are available. A great way to explore Amsterdam.

There is a canoe, but guests must demonstrate ability. Water jackets of various sizes (including children) are available. Private cruises on a demolition can be arranged.

griet the landlord was amazing and soooooooo accomodating. it was myself, my girl friend and my daughter. the boat is at the ver y end of the pier so you get to see everything around you. close to public transporatation (5 min walk-ferries/taxis/train/bike/bus's)She offered us a canoe for use which we used in the dock and had a blast!! she gave us two complimentary bottles of wine nd offered to take us to park our car at a much more affordable place and drive us bak to the boat as well. she checked up on us and made sure we were taken care of daily. very sweet and laid back back.

Fantastic, authentic Amsterdam experience. A must!

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in the beautifully designed and furnished captain quarters this past weekend. My husband and I had the most peaceful sleep on the incredibly comfortable bed. The captain's accommodations were well cared for and incredibly clean. It had everything we could have needed during our stay complete with a chilled bottle of wine in the refrigerator upon our arrival. We enjoyed it along with the picturesque view from the cozy pilot's deck. Neives did a great job hosting us making sure we had all the information for our weekend in Amsterdam. The location isn't in the center of the city (a bit chaotic and overrun with tourists) but is an easy walk or Vespa/bike ride away. Only 15-20 minute walk from great dining and tourists spots in the area of Jordaan. We opted for the Vespa and had a great time traversing the streets of the city. Highly recommend the houseboat experience for an authentic stay in Amsterdam!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
This was a beautiful ship with full amenities. I was surprised at how much was offered in the quarter. The shower had good pressure and hot water (I have had incidents at other hotels in Europe where that was not the case). It was clean and bright and cheery. The linens and towels were fresh and clean as was the cookware, including the microwave and mini fridge. The view was great, the ship is located at the end of the pier and you have a full view of the surrounding harbour. It was lovely having a cup of coffee in the captains steering hood in the morning. It was great to have free wifi and it was so close to central station and other tram lines that it was a prime location for the sights. Everything is in walking distance if you're up for the adventure of Amsterdam. Great hostess as well.

Traumhafte Unterkunft mit super netter Vermieterin

  • 5 of 5
Wir (Paar, 40 und 38 Jahre alt) wollten mal eine etwas andere Unterkunft als das übliche Hotel mit Frühstück und sind im Internet auf dieses Hausboot gestoßen. Das Boot liegt gut erreichbar und wunderschön im alten Holzhafen von Amsterdam. Aus der sehr gemütlich eingerichteten Kapitänskajüte hat man einen tollen Rundumblick über den Hafen - mit ein bisschen Glück kommt sogar die MS Deutschland vorbei geschippert! Hauptbahnhof und Zentrum sind zu Fuß zu erreichen und Joordan liegt direkt um die Ecke. Küche, Bad und Schlafbereich liegen im unteren Teil des Bootes und sind klein, aber fein. 3-Gänge-Menues sollte man nicht kochen wollen, aber es ist alles da, was man braucht um kleinere Mahlzeiten und ein gutes Frühstück zu zaubern. Das in der Nähe lebende Schwanenpaar freut sich über kleine Häppchen. Bei gutem Wetter ist ein Sonnenbad an Deck mit Bierchen oder Weinchen eine feine Sache. Für uns der ideale Ort, um sich von der Großstadthektik zu erholen. Einfach toll! Groetjes aan Griet!

Gemütlich und gepflegt

  • 4 of 5
Ich war mit meiner Freundin eine woche auf dem Boot und es war sehr gemütlich und angenehm. Zudem war es sehr gepflegt. Bis zum centrum ist es zu fuß auch nicht weit. Aber der absolute höhepunkt war das kajak mit ausenbordmotor das man wie selbst verständlich mitnutzen darf^^

War eine sehr schöne woche und zudem mal was anderes!!!

Liebe grüße auch an Nieves... :-D
Vielleicht bis nächstes mal...
Grüße Annika &René

The Dana is docked in the old Houthavens (lumber harbor). The Houthavens is a fascinating combination of old industrial harbor buildings and modern architectural design, residential, small business and artist / craftsmen studios. The Houthavens are in the Zeeheldenbuurt (maritime heros) area and adjacent to the westernmost islands - one of the oldest neighborhoods of Amsterdam island and the old sailor quarters of Amsterdam. It is one of Amsterdam's secret locations and few tourists come here. It is within walking distance of the renowned Haarlemmerdijk shopping area and the trendy Jordaan. There is a (organic) food market on Saturday and Wednesday and flee market on Monday in the vicinity. The historic canal belt is within walking distance. Guests can take the free ferry through the harbor area and the new EYE Film Museum. Other areas of the city (ie district museum and fashion district) can be Reached by bus. There is gym in the area.
