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.

Highly recommended ... great value for money
Have visited Amsterdam a number of times over last 30 years and can honestly say the space inside and out you get with staying on the houseboat is such a bonus ... we’d definitely stay here again rather than book a hotel. We were a bit concerned about staying away from the centre at first but our fears were unfounded .... its a really pleasant location, less than 10mins walk to the free ferry that runs 24/7 and you never wait more than a couple of minutes for it taking you straight into central Amsterdam. Communication with the owner prior to arriving was excellent and he is quick to refund our deposit too. On arrival we were met by a very nice lady who explained everything we needed to know about the boat, how to get to the ferry, where the nearest supermarket, restaurants, shops etc were. The houseboat was clean, secure and had everything we needed. We are looking forward to coming back.
Quiet and affordable stay in Amsterdam
My wife and I along with another coupe stayed at Sander's canal boat during our recent vacation in Amsterdam. It offered a great combination of being able to stay on a canal at an affordable price and still be in a peaceful/quiet setting without be too far removed from the activities in central Amsterdam. The rental is located about a kilometer from the ferry boat that takes you straight into the heart of Amsterdam. One of the people in our party developed a foot problem on our trip and the walk was a little long for her, but everyone else found it to be easy and convenient. I would definitely rent from Sander in the future and would probably try to rent bikes to get around the city and back to the boat if we have the opportunity to visit again.
We loved the houseboat. It was really nice being a little off the beaten bath. The walk and the ferry ride added to our experience. It was quiet, peaceful, comfortable, and gave a nice, different experience. We highly recommend this. Added bonus if you like purple, as we do!
Cute, clean, well stocked houseboat
A really nice place to stay, great location for those who dont mind a bit 15 min walk to the centre and easy to get to from the airport. Really nice and helpful host. A lovely little house to stay in whilst we were in Amsterdam
We loved our stay on the houseboat! Such a cool, unique experience. Would recommend for anyone looking for a quiet, cozy stay. Fully stocked kitchen was great for cooking. We liked that the ducks and swans would come up to the windows in the morning.
Fantastic experience - Great host
Arrived centraal station and immediate ferry to the other side. Easy 12 min walk to the houseboat & lovely greeting by Sander the host. Home from home. You dont require anything...even umberellas!!! Lovely quiet location & the rain on the houseboat was soothing. 100% recommend to get away from the madnesz of the hustle. The houseboat is spotlessly clean & warm. Full option to cook as everything is just like your own kitchen. So a big thank you for allowing us on your houseboat Sander. Fantastic experience.
Note: the main bin at the end of your stay is left at the end of the street.
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.
