What you will love about this home

Interested to experience Amsterdam in a really Dutch way? Then come and stay on my authentic, antique houseboat. My home is not a cookie cutter Hilton accommodation, but a charming, atmospheric, one-of-a-kind houseboat located in the center of Amsterdam on a large body of water that is a tributary of the IJsselmeer, Western Europe’s largest lake:
My large houseboat is situated on the Westerdok (Western Dock), close to Central Station and just across from the Jordaan neighborhood, one of the country’s most known, picturesque, and romanticized places to live, shop, and go out. Traditiional architecture, quaint stores, great restaurants, and colorful people abound. Walking distance also to the Anne Frank House and the Westerkerk (West Church), where Rembrandt is said to be buried.

Facilities include 4 rooms including ADSL internet, cable TV, DVD and CD players, a music studio with my grand piano, sundeck. All utilities provided. Nice open view over the Westerdok waters. I now have a meticulous lady to clean the boat regularly, so any problems about this from one or two guests in the past are over. Enjoy a unique stay in Amsterdam in one of the city’s most popular locations!

Please note: For the most part I am not interested in exchanges or for guest points of only 2 or 3 days. I do not answer requests for this. Usually I am interested only in home exchanges or in guest points for at least about a week to 2 weeks or longer. Also, I am mostly interested in exchanges in summer or to warm weather places.

What you will love in the neighborhood

Amsterdam is very modern and cosmopolitan, yet without the stress of most large cities. Life and activities can be at an easy, self directed pace. It's nice that nothing or no one is pushing you to do anything (unless of course you're stuck in some big, impersonal corporation with all kinds of rules and deadlines, etc.) You can also go anywhere on a bicycle without the hastle of parking or traffic.

Whatever your persuasion you can probably find it here.
