|Calendar updated||A week ago|
This stunning, luxurious houseboat is located on the Keizersgracht near to the brouwersgracht and is suited for up to 5 persons.
The boat is situated within walking distance to everything Amsterdam has to offer.
The houseboat is a monumental, authentic ship built in 1927 with a beautiful Berkel motor that is still running, the only one in the Netherlands. In one of the bedrooms you have a window with a view on the Berkel Motor.
The boat has been totally rebuilt in the inside and fitted with every amenity while maintaining the boats original heritage look.
Two bedrooms and one sleeping couch makes the boat suitable for up to five people.
A private entrance and your own key code means you can come and go as you please.
The boat is available for short stays but also for longer periods.
The houseboat is decorated and furnished in warm, natural colours and fabrics, creating an oasis of peace in the busy city centre.
Each bedroom features two comfortable beds. One bedroom features a bathroom with shower and the other bedroom is featured with a two-person whirlpool bath and has a window with a view on the antique motor.
Both bedrooms are equipped with LED light, LCD TV and DVD player.
In between is the living with an open kitchen. The toilet is separate.
The kitchen is equipped with, amongst other things, a combination microwave oven, dishwasher, 4 burner gas stove and built in fridge-freezer.

The boat also features LED lighting that can be changed in different colors, LCD TV, DVD and WiFi internet, Nespresso machine, water boiler, Ipod dock and is heated with modern central heating system.
The deck is one big terrace, so you can enjoy the sun sitting on the sun chairs.
The houseboat is situated in the center, the middle of the Jordaan neighborhood, within walking distance from Amsterdam Central Station. The small houses are typical of a neighborhood built for the working class and migrants. In the sixties a large-scale renovation of the old buildings took place. Families with children left and entrepreneurs and students came to take their place. The Jordaan, bursting with intimate boutiques, café's and restaurants, is the ideal place to live!
Situated in the immediate vicinity are various places of interest and museums such as the Anne Frank House, the Westertoren, the Palace on Dam Square, Madame Tussauds and the trendy Westerpark with plenty of new places to eat and drink. The Jordaan itself is home to a number of old ‘hofjes', publicly accessible courtyards such as the Lindenhofje and the Looyershofje which are certainly worth a visit. On a Saturday you can combine a visit to a ‘hofje' with a stroll around the organic farmers' market or the Antiques/Brocante Market. Or wander around the famous 9 streets, picturesque shopping streets full of heritage-listed buildings. It's a trendy neighbourhood with flagship stores and branches of every luxury chain.
Amsterdam's vibrant night life is in close proximity to the boat. Around 10 minute walk ing away are the Leidseplein and the Rembrandtplein, where you'll find the bigger clubs like Jimmy Choo, The Escape and Club Air.
Amsterdam is yours to explore when you rent a bike from one of the nearby rental facilites. It's the perfect way to get around this lively city!

We had a very lovely stay at the house boat. The whole booking and check in /out process was very uncomplicated and the host a nice lady. Minus points for the dirty dishes and the used teabags in the teabagbox. But it was a very comfortable place and the best time in Amsterdam. Definitely going to book again.
This stay on this houseboat was an unforgettable experience! It is located in a very nice neighborhood, close to a very friendly market, unique shops and quaint pub. The advice of our host were helpful.
Except a slight problem of wicking of the shower, the houseboat is perfect and very comfortable.
In short, we advise you!

Ce séjour sur cette péniche a été une expérience inoubliable! Elle est située dans un quartier très sympa, à deux pas d'un marché très convivial, de boutiques originales et de pub pittoresques. Les conseils de notre hôte nous ont bien aidés.
Excepté un léger problème d'évacuation de l'humidité de la douche, la péniche est parfaite et très confortable.
Bref, on vous la conseille!

Small but cosy, the pictures are accurate. We had a wonderful stay even though the shower wasn't ideal. But the location was and so was the bed. Everything felt clean as well.

Magnífico lugar, impresionante la localización, un barrio precioso y a 5 minutos andando de los lugares emblemáticos.
El barco es muy especial, ideal para una pareja a la que le gusten los espacios no convencionales.
Endlich angekommen und nach langer stressiger Recherche wars ein wunderbarer Aufenthalt. Sein Geld wirklich wert.
Schade war nur dass wir ca 4.5 Stunden zu spät als abgemacht rein kamen und auch vorher niemand zu erreichen war.
Wimdu empfanden wir da leider auch gar nicht als hilfe
Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit in Amsterdam und meine Tochter ist 2 Wochen später ein weiteres Mal in diese sehenswerte Stadt gereist.
Unsere Unterbringung hat uns enttäuscht. Vieles wirkte heruntergekommen, der Stuhl, den ich beiseite schob, krachte zusammen. Da hatte ich noch mal Glück gehabt. Der Wassserhahn wackelte hin und her, Toilettenpapier reichte bei Weitem nicht usw. Es waren die vielen kleinen Dinge, die nervten, Hier sollten einige kleine Verbesserungen vorgenommen werden...
Auch von der viel gepriesenen Höflichkeit der Vermieter haben wir nichts gespürt. Bei der Einweisung blieb das Mädchen auf dem Roller sitzen und gab uns Instruktionen; als jemand nach dem Rechten sah, wussten wir nicht, mit wem wir es zutun hatten. Das war aber auch die Ausnahme, denn uns begegneten die Amsterdamer während unseres Aufenthaltes sehr offen und nett.
Amsterdam, immer wieder, jedoch mit einer anderen Unterkunft
