LUXURY HOME ON THE WATER- VOTED MOST DESIRABLE CANAL IN AMSTERDAM (2009)

Jordaan House Boat Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s).

The Prins & Brouwer was launched on March 8, 2003. It's hull design is that of a classic River barge from the 1920s so it blends in well with the 17th century surroundings of the canal it is moored on. Along the Canal you will find 17th century old warehouses, which by now have all been restored and converted to comfortable homes. It is a spectacular view to wake up to, each morning. The classic exterior of the ship is somewhat deceiving which you will realize when you enter our home, and experience the remarkable spacious interior. Succesfull Dutch architect, Maurice van Bakel has a keen eye for aesthetics in combination with optimization of available space.

Space & Light: We had three wishes: space, plenty of natural light, in a contemporary yet Cozy design.

The result is astonishing. It is said that the Dutch are the tallest people in the world. I myself am 6ft, 4'' (1.93mtr) tall but the rooms never feel cramped. The hull design has been enlarged from its original 1927 drawings to create higher ceilings and more space. The interior design lines are clean and playful, allowing an open flow from one room to the next. This ship is in the first place our own home, so we certainly did not compromise on quality. We have used only the best materials in the construction and fittings which resulted in a convenient, cozy and well appointed beautiful house. With it's different levels you can always find a room or space to be on your own. If you feel like it, perhaps in the lounge to watch a movie on the Loewe flat screen in full Bose surround sound or maybe upstairs in the Den with a good book and a glass of wine.

Comfort: Our favorite place to be however is outside on the large 600 sq ft/60 mtr2 deck. At the large outside table you can enjoy your dinner with many friends. Perhaps Barbeque yourself a nice meal and enjoy all the little boats and people passing by which provide extra entertainment and the occasional friendly comment on your nice abode.

In the spring and summer various canal festivals make their way past our home providing fun entertainment.

Our home is not only a great place to enjoy during spring and summer, it is an equally pleasant stay during Fall and Winter. The climate control system provides both heating as well as air conditioning to keep you comfortable no matter what weather it is outside. Christmas and New years are a great time to enjoy our home as well.

We'll provide a 'real' Christmas tree, and if you are lucky you will also catch the traditional Christmas boat parade with each boat carrying a choir singing Christmas Carrols (December 23rd).

Neighbourhood: The ship is located conveniently near grocery shopping, trendy restaurants, boutiques and fresh markets. All this, within one to five minutes walking distance. The Wednesday and Saturday morning fresh markets across the Canal are truly superb. A great variety of Dutch flowers can be found at a steal and you?ll find the best fresh produce right there on your doorstep.Public transportation is nearby, you can hop on a bus right along the canal or walk to the Central train station in less than ten minutes. If you have a car you can reach the highway in about ten minutes also. The best way to get around, however, is by ?Rent a bike?. You can rent one nearby on our canal.

The Prins & Brouwer is first and foremost our home. We do spend quite some time traveling throughout the year and when we are not in Amsterdam we would like to share our home with you. It is the perfect place for a business traveler or those who need accommodations for an extended period of time. Feel free to contact

Lovely houseboat at the best possible location. Property manager was a pleasure to work with. A very different and wonderful experience. Fun to drink wine at the picnic table on the bow and wave at boaters.

My family just returned from a weeks stay on the Prins & Brouer and had a blast! The boat is very stylish, well done and will satisfy anyone with sophisticated tastes. The location is 5star and it was very fun to sit and watch the world go by every evening from the deck or on the great built-in lounge on the upper level. We traveled with our 2 teenage kids and my 79yr old mother and it was perfect for all. The "master" was beautiful and very comfortable, but I will note that americans might find the 2nd guestroom to be a bit tight for 2 adults as it is a classic European double and rather small. However, It's worth the sacrifice and the built-in lounges (2) easily accomodate adults if necessary--just not private. Rene was great--kindly met my mom early at the boat on check-in and arranged a car for us to go to the airport. The owners thoughtfully put together a nice & informative binder with operating instructions for appliances and reco's for restaurants--we tried several and they were all great. In fact, we had spent several days in Paris before arriving and have to say that we found better food and more variety in Amsterdam. The city and it's people are gorgeous--can't wait to go back and we will definitely stay on the P&B!!

Great Houseboat experience

Our family of 4 (2 kids: 19 & 17) stayed on the Prins & Brouwer for a weekend in late June. The manager Rene met us promptly at the boat at our arrival time and gave us an excellent overview of the features on-board. Rene was great with organizing details before we arrived, and was very helpful while we were there, including coordinating our transportation back to airport. Well done, Rene.

The boat is in excellent condition, and it is as shown in the pictures, though it was even bigger and had more space than we had expected. We had plenty of room for all of us. The kitchen was nice and well equipped. It was stocked with coffee -- we brewed a pot each morning.

The location is convenient. We walked all over the city, and it was a great home base to explore. There are grocery stores within a 1-2 minute walk, a nice cheese shop on the nearest corner, and restaurants nearby.

Staying here was a great way to experience canal living in Amsterdam in a great location. And, it was a smooth and easy experience booking and working with Rene. Highly recommend it!

My family had the vacation of a lifetime staying on the Prins and Brouwer for 1 week. I have 2 children, ages 11 and 5. There was plenty of space for all of us, and we were very comfortable. We were in an ideal location for canal-watching, and also close to restaurants and Central Station, yet it was not too noisy. Tourists were taking our photos from the passing tour boats! This boat is just perfect, and I would recommend it to anyone staying in Amsterdam.

I accompanied my daughter and her husband and 2 children for a wonderful week on this beautiful boat! There was plenty of space for everyone and we had a fantastic time. Everything you could need or want on this amazing boat is provided! I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend to anyone interested in the houseboat experience. I also felt very safe the few times that I was on my own. This section of the city is easily navigated on foot and everything is very conveniently located. The Saturday market is right across the canal, the cheese and grocery shops are around the corner, the people on the passing boats are fun to wave at as you sit on the deck with a nice glass of wine - it was perfect and a great way to create wonderful memories! Thank you!
