Boat, Entire place - Amsterdam, Netherlands

ID 102146
5.0 stars (48 reviews)


Welcome to Amsterdam! A wonderful city built around it’s city canals.

On a houseboat your city trip will be more intense and unique than ever. Surrounded by monumental buildings, it is located in the city center, right at the Jordan district. Anne Frank’s house, Dam square, the Northern market, the Kalverstreet and much more are within a 5 minute walking range. Of course there are lots of shops, restaurants, terraces etc. in the direct surroundings. Local people in general agree that the Prinsencanal is the prettiest and most fun of them all. It is also on the UNESCO worlds heritage list and this year we celebrate 400 years of canals! Come and enjoy all this beauty yourself!

The boat is uniquely arranged, like a loft everything is in one spacious room. Pictures speak more than words, be sure to check those out as well. Along the waterfront side of the boat you find six big glass doors that will give you that unique feeling of living on the water. You can sit in the openings to soak up to soak up the wonder of the waters and fun (tourist) boats passing you buy. And might it be a bit more chilly, you can still enjoy the life outside, but in the comfort of the warmth of the fireplace! Even from the antique bathtub, you can overlook the canal. It is right at the end of the queen-size double bed.
The kitchen is equipped with all necessary means, might you decide to stay in a night. Coffee machine pans, oven, microwave, blender, etc.

You are more than welcome!

    Our host was extremely kind and had great response times getting back. She was helpful from everything from organic food and cleaning detergent suggestions, locations of local gyms, helpful with her lockbox for all hour check ins. Her home has a ton of love in it and is in thee ideal location for visiting Amsterdam.

    The larger tv in living space does not have an hdmi outlet if you are bringing an apple tv but her smaller tv in the bedroom does.

    If you want a laid back super chill home with good vibes then I highly recommend this house boat. Did I mention this is a house boat. Super cool experience and one you will surely remember.

    The House Boat is Wonderful! It is extremely cozy and relaxing. It is also a lot of fun. While staying on the boat, I very much enjoyed watching other boats cruise the canal while passengers wave hello and cheer! Additionally, the fireplace at night is unbeatable and the location is fantastic! Located in the center of town, I could not ask for a better spot to enjoy Amsterdam. I even became friendly with the neighbors as we greeted each other while coming and going. So, what's close by? Anne Frank's House, Cheese Museum, lot's of small cozy bars and restaurants and many many Coffee Houses. A particularly nice touch is the antique bathtub. It was just a great experience sitting in the tub while watching the daily relaxed life-style of North Holland Folk. Overall, it was really the house boat that made my trip just such an incredible experience. In this way, it truly is the experience of experience that makes an experience unforgettable!!
