Modern and recently refurnished apartment on a Houseboat in Amsterdam

Bedrooms 2
Half Baths1
Property type house boat
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

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.

The house boat is absolutely amazing, the perfect place for a couple or group to get away to.

The owners are super friendly and made it their objective to make sure we knew exactly where we were heading!

I am definitely coming back!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Amsterdam, and we were quite excited at the thought of staying on a houseboat, and I must admit, it was a great choice. The boat was amply spacious enough for our party of four, and was very warm and welcoming. Sander greeted us on arrival, gave a guided tour of the boat and plenty of useful information about Amsterdam. The accommodation was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, and was immaculately clean.

The location of the boat was perfect, just a short walk from the ferry, which ran very frequently. The ferry service was excellent and we never had to wait for a boat to arrive, and within a few minutes you were across the river and in the heart of Amsterdam.

In the local vicinity we came upon a new café/bakery on 113 Mosveld called de Bakkerszonen that we could definitely recommend. The welcome from the staff was great and the food was superb. The selection of cakes, bread and pastries to take away was fantastic.

We all agreed we would definitely recommend this accommodation.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Our visit could not have been improved. The location was easy to find, the property was incredibly clean and had everything we needed. Our in-person orientation was very beneficial to have any questions we had answered, and get an overview of the place. The guidebook expertly included additional thoughts of the immediate and surrounding areas. Books, maps and travel guides were handy to have for extra information. Our evenings were very quiet and we never heard the adjacent room during our stay, nor the ducks floating by. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a special place to stay while visiting Amsterdam. Both floors were well maintained and offered lots of space to store things. Big decks out front to sit down and enjoy the outside.

There's a little pub/restaurant called ONS that we popped into twice in four days that had excellent service and food and beverages choices. Its on the route to/from the ferry and has wi-fi too. Excellent customer service. Anyone that is wary or curious of logistics getting to the ferry will be amazed at their first crossing. The Ferry system at Amsterdam Central getting to/from Noord warrants a major kudos. We never had to wait more than 2 minutes on the 12 times we needed it to cross.

We had a great experience and would not hesitate to return. Thanks for a memorable trip! Don't change a thing.

Sander was so helpful and he greeted us right on time as discussed. The houseboat was in great condition and just at the photos were. We loved the location as it was a bit away from the hubbub but just a short walk or bike ride away. I would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Amsterdam! We loved everything about it

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.
