A floating Amsterdam "Home away from Home". "When you enter this cozy houseboat you immediately feel a great sense of comfort. You cannot just call this an ordinary houseboat. It's a home away from home with utmost hospitality by the family."
The houseboat consists of 2 boats connected to each other, one for private. The left one has been recently renovated and redecorated in 2012. This charming 50 m2 no smoking place lets a cozy and colorful double room for honeymooners, couples and businesspeople. It has all modern facilities like internet access, DVD and cable TV, includes comfortable double bed, full bath in a glass mosaic decorated bathroom, special touches like flowers, quality fruit, breakfast amenities, piano & guitar and a personal welcoming atmosphere.
What's more, this houseboat has a LOUNGE OUTSIDE: a beautiful and spacious floating 20m2 terrace surrounded by plants and reed and decorated with charming garden furniture. On the left 15m2 you can either lounge outside and relax or sit outside for an enjoyable meal overlooking the canal (smoking allowed, no drugs, see pictures).
This hospitable houseboat lies central in a quiet and peaceful residential area of Amsterdam. It is at 5 to 10 minutes walking distance from all major attractions (like Dam, Rijksmuseum, van Gogh, Anne Frankhuis etc.), has shops and open air market around the corner and there are direct trams to Central Station (15 minutes).
To facilitate your stay the family provides you with a personalised map of Amsterdam and assists for all relevant information!

Mayya It was a great experience for us to stay on the boat. We loved it. Our hosts gave us a very warm and nice welcome and very practical advises. We feel very comfortable during the whole period. My 10 years old daughter was fond of possibility to see very close ducks, swans and other birds.
Petra Had a lovely stay ( but indeed short )with a group of 3 friends. Location is great, close to anything you might want to visit in Amsterdam, Hans is an amazingly welcoming host, the boat is equipped and very comfortable. Thank you Elisabeth and Hans, for the stay!!!
Louise Bernard Our stay was very comfortable and a pleasure. Great location for, exploring everything in Amsterdam from the city and museum areas to the parks and shopping. Great to come home to such a relaxing atmosphere after a hard day of touring! One thing I don't recall seeing in the advert for this accommodation was the convience of also having a washing machine and dryer on board, perfect!
Linda I loved the houseboat. At night after a long day of roaming the streets it was a perfect place to come and enjoy the peacefulness. The owner, Hans, was so helpful. He recommended some great restaurants, he provided lovely fruits and juices for breakfast, he was a great host. No question but that I would return to the houseboat if I ever go back to the city.
Ray The best trip ever! 6 of us shared this fantastic space, as Hans warned us, you must be friendly. Hans made us feel right at home, started us out with tons of suggestions and a marked up map (the Indonesian meal was fantastic!). Some of us were out all night, some of us hung out on the boat in the evening. The floating dock was a big hit for hanging out when we were there. Very accessible to the center city - both walking and using the trams. The neighborhood was also a great place. Everything was comfortable and clean and we really appreciated the fruit, breads, coffees and juices to get us going in the morning. Definitely will stay there again when in Amsterdam.
