|Property type||house boat|
|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
I'm a writer. While staying in my home, you will get a taste of the warm artistic atmosphere I have surrounded myself with, and you will quickly find yourself at home. Simply imagine yourself sitting on the terrace, enjoying a glass of wine while swans and ducks pass by.
Sometimes, with hard winds or when boats go too fast, you will feel the boat move!
With a modern comfort, this houseboat measures 53m2 complete with an adjoining terrace of 15m2.
As you walk thorough the entrance hall with a half bath, you will find the spacious living room with an exit to the terrace, the fully equipped kitchen, a working/sleeping area. The boat has wireless internet access.
Each part offers beautiful views on the water through their large windows. You will find it to be complete with a comfortable bathroom with shower and a washing machine.
This houseboat is the perfect getaway FOR TWO people looking for something new and different.

I'm a writer. In 2011 I published my first novel. Theatre plays have been played and a singer/songwriter sings a few of my songs.
Apart from that I'm also working as a researcher in Television. I love this work. Especially when it gives me the opportunity to travel.
Caroline Ligthart purchased this house boat in 1995
I always had this dream of living on a boat. At the age of 30 I was able to buy this beautiful boat. So I live my dream!
For years I've been busy to rebuilt it (the state it was in was very bad), and now it's all finished.
I'd like to share my boat with other people because it's such a special place and otherwise a tourist would never get the opportunity to experience what it's like to be so fortune and live in tho special way.
You can sit on the terrace and just watch the ducks and my special friends the swans go by. Every morning there is a swans who swims up to my window when I am behind my desk to write. I always have the feeling he comes to great me and wish me a nice day.
The view of the boat is very special. Trough every window you can see the water, and that is very relaxing and I find also inspiring.
The hot spot of Amsterdam, including the popular Waterloople in flea market, the Opera House, the Red Light District , China Town and the Dam Square are all within short walking distances.
During spring/summer/autumn there is a antique curiosa market on the Nieuwmarkt, a beautiful old square with the old Waag, surrounded by cafes and restaurants.
A perfect way to see the area is to rent a bike. Within 15 minutes you can enter the Van Gogh Museum, or the Stedelijk Museum (modern art) or the famous Rijksmuseum. Very special is also the Hermitage, situated on the Amstel river, only 5 minutes by bike.
But you can also just walk through the little allies, on the canals and admire the wonderful architecture of the old city.
The oldest house of the city is a 4 minutes walk away, and a wonderful cafe is situated in it! A must-seen!
