Our ship was build in 1899 and originally used for transportation. Many years ago it was turned into a beautiful houseboat and located in the centre of Amsterdam. Haarlemmerstraat, which was called 'best shopping street of Holland', is nearby.

The space

Central Station is within walking distance.
Our ship is docked in the oldest part of Amsterdam: Prinseneiland / Jordaan.
We have a quay, next to the ship, where you can relax in the sun, till late in the evening. We also have a fire pit at the quay, so you can extend those lovely nights....

We have a big kitchen, with dishwasher, microwave, freezer, etc.
The living room is big as well, we have a television, wifi, WII and a fire place.

In the front of the ship is one (large) bedroom with a big bed for two large persons and in the back of the ship is a bedroom with a big bed for two large persons and in the back of the ship is another bedroom with a build-in bed, were one person (or two, who really like each other) can sleep (1.10m). If you don't really like each other, we have an extra airbed for 2 persons, ánd a cosy couch ;)
We have a bathroom with a bathtub and shower.
Washing machine and dryer are also available on the ship.
We have three cats, one old one and two young ones. They are all lovely!

We have plants in pots around the water, so it is quite safe for little kids. But we also have life vests for the little ones, if wanted, please let us know in advance, we'll make it sure the vests are within reach.

Our ship (25 meters long and 5 meters wide) is docked and not able to sail anymore, so you don't have to be afraid of waking up in the middle of the canal.

All in all a great opportunity to experience the Dutch live on a houseboat!

Interaction with guests

What you will receive as standard:

- Use of 2 bicycles
- Fast WiFi
- TV and DVD player
- Coffee (Nespresso) and tea
- Kitchen with fridge and microwave/convection oven
- Fireplace
- Bath and shower
- Towels and bed linen

We'll usually be there on the day you arrive, to show you around. You can always call us and our neighbours are also present if you have any questions.
We won't be at the ship if you're here, but we'll be around and can assist you if needed.

Other things to note

We want to be sure about the beds:
We have a big bedroom with a big bed (1.80 wide and 2.00 long) 2 people can sleep here. We also have a smaller bedroom with a big bed (1.80 wide and 2.00 long) 2 people can sleep here, and a smal bedroom with a bed that's 1.10m wide and 2.00m long, it's small, but 2 people can sleep in it. But it would be better if 1 person sleeps in the smaller bed and if there are more people, they can sleep on the inflatable airbed for two persons, or on the couch.

So it's possible that extra people will stay on the boat. But they have to sleep in the living room on the couch or on the airbed.

This is a gorgeous home! We have been on many boats in Amsterdam and this is definitely one of our favourites ... The location is peaceful and away from trouble but within easy reach of all you need and a quick connection to the center. We loved the cats and the duck and all the lovely items on board. All the best to you!

This felt like home, from the minute we got here. Everything was as advertised and as promised. It's a wonderful place to stay and a really authentic thing to do while in Amsterdam. The fact that this is their home for most of the year made this an even better experience. Would highly recommend this to others.
