Awsome location, by far the best airbnb we have done ! Exceptionnal view from the house boat. Calm, close to the metro and not so far walking from the center. Very confortable and fully equipped. Masha could bring us some groceries before coming which was really apreciated. It worth the price for sure.

We (two adults with a 10 year old) really enjoyed our stay in the main house of houseboat Ark van Amstel. The boat is beautifully designed with all the facilities you need for a stay in Amsterdam. The boat is a short (5 min) wall to both a tram and metro station to go anywhere in Amsterdam and beyond. There are good restaurants locally, and on the other side of the river is the bohemian De Pijp neighbourhood. Although we didn't meet the owner, Masha, we had good communications with her and others. We would recommend the houseboat

I am Masha and have two kids Boaz (5) & Luca (3,5).
I live on the Amstel for 8 years. First we lived at a real boat, a sailing ship. We were in love of this place because of the oase of peace & nature in the middle of the city. But because of kids coming the ship became too small for 2 kids, so we started to realise an ark, this took about 1,5 year. On the 1st birthday of our daugther Luca this Ark was shipped to this place and still we are enjoying and we even love this place more and more.
I am a personal life coach, trainer and freelance project manager. My passion is to create indivudual, and social changes.
