About this listing

This bedroom is situated on the ground floor of our HOUSEBOAT with fantastic views over the water. We live in the city, but also in the countryside.
It's only 200 m away from public transport and supermarket.

The space

A place in the city and still enjoy the outdoors, this is what we offer.
Our houseboat lies in upcoming / hot Amsterdam North close to the NDSM shipyard.
The room is located on the quiet water side with stunning views over the water. The best way to wake up!
In summer you can enjoy the sun in our garden or terrace on the water and even swim.
But also in the other seasons it is wonderful to just watch over the water

Guest access

The bathroom, kitchen and living room are shared. The garden and the terrace on the waterfront are freely available.
In addition to a breakfast, we can also offer you a delicous home cooked meal

Interaction with guests

We also live in this home and we like the interaction with our guests.
But of course we will also respect your privacy.
Besides ourselves we also have our 2 cats Nina and Nena.

Other things to note

If you want to cycle, take a ride through the beautiful city and / or go to the countryside can too. It only takes 5 minutes and you're in the country. You can even visit Zaanse Schans, Volendam, Edam and Durgerdam. You can park for free. There is always enough parking space.

Amsterdam Center has many restaurants, bars and clubs. But also in North Amsterdam are within walking distance many good restaurants. We all know them, so feel free to ask for information

We have in front of the house free parking
Public transport is around the corner, frequent and affordable. The ferries to Central Station are free. There are night buses. In summer there is a night ferry from Central Station to NDSM.
On the bike to Central Station is about 15 min.
Walking and Ferry ca. 20 min to Central Station

We want to share with our guests, that what we enjoy every day.
In addition to a good night you can also use the meals with us. My hobby is cooking.
And you can also go on a boat trip with Gerard in his own boat. (website hidden).
The best way to see Amsterdam is by boat.

Joke & Gerard were just lovely hosts!! We had arrived on King's Day where everywhere was packed and he offered to pick us up from the city since he was doing a boat tour nearby. We had a lovely tour on his boat while he showed us some sights while cruising around. We then got to their boathouse which was renovated really tastefully. The boathouse offered a beautiful and calming view, coupled with charming conversations with the pair - we couldn't have asked for a better place to be! We'd go back there when we're in Amsterdam again. Thank you, Joke & Gerard for opening your home to us and being such hospitable hosts!

We had a very pleasant stay with Joke and Gerald. Their home is very nice and they made us feel very comfortable. Gerald gave us a tour through the canals of Amsterdam on his boat during our stay, which was spectacular. Overall we would definitely recommend Joke and Gerald to anyone for their stay in Amsterdam!

The best airbnb experience I've had- Joke and Gerard are great hosts with a beautiful home right on the water. They were fantastic hosts who made our first time in Amsterdam so memorable. From the wonderful recommendations of what to eat/do, to Gerard's canal trip, to Joke's breakfast- this is a great place. I would recommend this Airbnb without hesitation. Clean room/bathroom, easy commute to downtown Amsterdam and the airport.

Joke and Gerard are welcoming and flexible hosts. The accommodations are comfortable and if you're worried about movement on a houseboat don't worry, it is a stable home on the water. They put all the ferry information in the listing so pay attention to the directions. It is actually a 15 minute walk from the ferry. Gerard took us on a wonderful canal trip our last day and it was wonderful! If you want to visit Anne Frank House purchase tickets online ahead of time or else like up at 2pm for the 3:30 general admission. Definitely the highlight of my trip!

Joke and Gerard were the kindest, most generous hosts you could hope for! The room literally sits just over the water with swans to greet you in the morning. Bustling central Amsterdam is a middling walk and ferry ride away. We will return!

My husband Lutz and I had a great time with Joke and Gerard on their lovely houseboat. We often book via Airbnb and I have to say, this was the greatest stay I ever had! The hosts are really nice, always anxious to make you feel comfortable. If you want to be on your own, you are on your own. If you like to have company, you will have great talks and a glass of wine (or even more). We are sorry we missed a trip with the boat, but we will definitely catch up with it next time. Thanks again...
