What you will love about this home
Our house-boat is comfortable, clean, and spacious. We have just renovate it completely (interieur and exterieur). The deck overlooks Amsterdam historic canals. We love spending time in our houseboat and having friends over, it is warm and inviting. We offer a beautiful home in the center of Amsterdam. Nearby the central station, 20 minutes from/to Schiphol by train. We have two bedrooms, one with a single childrens bed and one with a big double (water)bed. There is space for extra beds, which we can arrange for you. In the living room and dining table next to the kitchen you can sit with six persons around a large table. It's a charming houseboat where you immediately feel comfortable. With a high ceiling, surprisingly light and beautiful decorated. Two city bikes, free access cards to museum - and public transport tickets are available for you.
