Stay on an Amsterdam canal in a very comfortable houseboat on walking distance from the historic center of the city, museum district, city park , city squares and all other Amsterdam highlights. Our boat is limited available throughout the year.

The boat is equipped for maximum 4 persons (one main bed in bedroom and one spare bed in living room) and is in a more quiet area of Amsterdam, we find it a peaceful place to relax and unwind.

When you stay on our boat, you will have full privacy.

We welcome you on our boat when you arrive and will help you at any given moment you need support.

The neighborhood of the boat is 'Amsterdam old west', an area with many good shops, special coffee places, bars and restaurants. You will find yourself staying in this part of the town more than you had expected.

The best way to move around Amsterdam is by foot or by bike. There is a bike rental shop around the corner and there is a direct tram connection to the center & central station.

If you come with young kids, there are plenty of children playgrounds in the area. We have also subscribed to english kids stations on tv for the occasional rainy day. Since you are on the water, clearly you do have to watch them very closely when moving in and out of the boat.

This has to be the absolute best Airbnb in Amsterdam. We had an amazing stay in this beautiful houseboat. Eva welcomed us promptly and showed us everything that we needed. Lucas was amazing communicating with us prior to our arrival making sure that everything we needed was provided. The houseboat is close to everything - restaurants, markets, shopping - but very quiet and off the tourist track. There was plenty of room inside for our group of three. Amazing views of the canals with geese and ducks stopping by to visit. Next time we're in Amsterdam, we'll definitely stay at this property. Highly recommend this amazing Airbnb !!!!!

The place is magnificent. Very well maintained, clean and equipped with everything a family traveling through Europe needs. Lucas was excellent. My daughter loved the place, the ducks come to the window to feed themselves, it really is lovely. We did all the sightseeing tours of the city walking, very well located. When I return to Amsterdam, I will be back on a boat.

This place is incredibly unique and would make any trip, especially with kids, even more memorable than the norm. Lucas was extremely responsive and attentive to our needs. What you see in the photos are what you get; it's as reliable as any sturdy house. The wifi is great. We traveled with our 2 girls (6 and 8 years old), and they slept in the pull out bed. We did not feel cramped at all, especially in the spacious bathroom. They loved that the ducks, geese and swans would come up to the windows during the day. The houseboat is in a residential area, with multiple supermarkets and restaurants nearby. It's close to tram stops, and is about a 15-20 minute walk to some of the major attractions. It was all in all a wonderful experience and I thank Lucas and his family for all of their hospitality. We will not forget this trip.

It was a perfect place, a perfect location and very kind host. Everything was very tidy and had good quality. The communication was very nice and friendly. I will definitely try to rent the Houseboat, next time I am in beautiful Amsterdam. Thank you, dear Lucas.

We are a small family who are often away from home. This gives us an opportunity to occasionally share the Amsterdam canal experience with you with the help of airbnb. Enjoy when you come to our boat!
