Overview

Jordaan House Boat Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

It is widely agreed that the Jordaan is one of, if not THE best neighborhood in Amsterdam. It has lovely canals, great shopping, galleries and restaurants, weekly street markets and easy access to all the tourist sights in Amsterdam. Enjoy a unique experience on one of the funkiest boats in town located in the best neighborhood on one of the prettiest canals. Our quaint 'bohemian inspired' houseboat is full of artistic flair with all the comforts of home. Guests can enjoy a 'walking holiday' as attractions are easily reached on foot, or rent a bike just around the corner. Views across the canals and bridges are sprinkled with beautiful churches and amazing Dutch architecture. If location, location, location is your wish in Amsterdam, this is the rental for you. The space is perfect for 2-3 people or a couple with 1-2 small children. It is a small boat with low ceilings, but once you get cuddled inside it is extremely comfortable with all the modern amenities plus spectacular views on the canal out every window. We have a large outside decks on the canal and street sides (rare on houseboats) adorned with beautiful flowers and plants. The interior of the boat has 'funky' bright colors, cool lighting and lots of visual candy. There are 2 rooms and several outdoor sitting areas. The main room has a comfortable sitting area, dining table, kitchen and a queen sized bed. The 2nd room has a bathtub / shower, bathroom, office area and a single bed. Guests will have access to the entire home including high-speed wireless internet, cable TV, stove top, microwave and small toaster oven, Nespresso Coffee machine, Phillips Juicing machine and mixer, hot water pot for tea and kitchen and bathroom supplies.

About Jody Toll

My name is Jody and I grew up in Tucson Arizona, went to Lewis and Clark College in Portland Oregon, lived in Japan, Los Angeles, Amsterdam and Bali... I love to travel and Amsterdam is absolutely the best city in the world ! Come enjoy with us !

Jody Toll purchased this house boat in 2005

Why Jody Toll chose Jordaan

When I first came to Amsterdam I knew I had to live on a houseboat. After years of searching, I found our boat which is located in the best spot in town and has tons of character! To wake up every morning to the glistening water, watch the ducks and other birds cruise by, listen to the live music and laughter in the streets and on the canal... it is a vibrant, artistic and beautiful place. I'm so happy to share it with you !

What makes this house boat unique

This boat is special because it sits on top of the water with large windows all along the canal and a wonderful outdoor patio. The views are amazing, you feel as if you could touch the water. And the Jordaan neighborhood is simply the best area of town!

Exceptional, Different, Outstanding!!!

  • 5 of 5

This houseboat is incredible!!! Anna, the onsite manager, is excellent, personable and informative! This boat has more personality than any 3 - five star hotel rooms. The location couldn't be better with walking access to most of the city, a 2 block walk to the tram and bus stop to go everywhere else. Restaurants for breakfasts, lunches and dinners are within a very short walk. Canal living is really fun and the description is very accurate. This is a unique houseboat and is great for people who want to have a great time enjoying Amsterdam!!!

Perfect Amsterdam Lodging!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this great little boat for 8 nights last month. I've used VRBO several times and always had great luck -- but this place is really something special, better than any other VRBO property I've experienced. The Bohemian Houseboat was a perfect location for exploring the city, and it was so cozy and comfortable! The information you see on this listing is 100% accurate; we knew what to expect before arriving. Anna was prompt and kind, and when we arrived to drop off our luggage, the houseboat was ready (early!).

The water was always hot, and water pressure was fantastic. The kitchen was handy, and we spent a lot of time on the back porch, enjoying the sights and swans. I highly recommend this boat for your Amsterdam get away!

Wunderschönes, magisches Hausboot!

  • 5 of 5

Schon die Kommunikation und Buchung mit der Besitzerin des Bootes verlief sehr freundlich und völlig unkompliziert. Sehr schön auch, dass unserem Wunsch entsprochen wurde in Euro zu bezahlen.

Ebenso erfreulich war der Empfang durch die sehr herzliche Verwalterin vor Ort. Treffpunkt war am Boot und das ist ein Highlight . Wir waren nicht ganz sicher, ob es uns vielleicht zu " bunt " sein würde, aber es übertraf dann unsere Erwartungen .

Es gab auf relativ kleinem Raum so viel zu entdecken, die Einrichtung lässt keine Wünsche offen, alles ist durchdacht, jeder Stauraum genutzt und wir haben nichts vermisst. Die liebevollen Details haben uns oft zum Schmunzeln und Staunen gebracht.

Für zwei ist das Boot ideal, wir haben beide Betten genutzt und sie sind sehr bequem.

Die Terrasse ist toll, man ist mitten im Geschehen und sieht entspannt dem Treiben auf der Gracht zu. Schade, dass es dieses Frühjahr sehr kühl war. Aber wir haben sogar wärmende Decken im Boot gefunden. Im Sommer, wenn alles blüht muss das ein ganz phantastischer Platz sein.

Es wurde uns alles erklärt und es hat alles gut funktioniert. Die Lage des Bootes ist ideal, dicht beim Anne-Frank-Haus im schönen Stadtteil Jordan ist alles fußläufig zu erreichen, nur zum sehenswerten Keukenhof haben wir öffentliche Verkehrsmittel benutzt.

Und trotzdem war es erstaunlich ruhig im Boot dank fast vollständiger Doppelverglasung.

Für uns war das ein perfekter Kurzurlaub, sehr lohnend ist der Frühlingsgarten Keukenhof und eine open boat tour ( bei gutem Wetter ), die nur ein paar Schritte von Jodys Hausboot aus startet.

Wir können dieses magische Hausboot mit viel Charme sehr empfehlen und sagen ein großes Dankeschön an Jody und Anna.
