Canal apt or houseboat 2 bedroom

Anyone got a suggestion for an two bedroom apartment on a canal or a houseboat. I am having trouble finding one where they allow a two night stay. Most three night min.

I don't have one specifically in mind, but you can find either type on Airbnb. There are a few two bedroom apartments in the Grachtengordel whose owners allow short stays.

Thank you! I did not know about Airbnb and this site seems to have what I am looking for. However, I am a little confused about neighborhoods. I want to be in the Canal Ring/Belt or leidsplan or dam square or rembrandtplein..some place that is walking distance to sights and trendy bar/restaurant areas.

But the neighborhoods are not described like that on this site instead they are listed like this: Where should I be looking? Thanks!

You want to stay in:

76 Amsterdam Centrum

22 De Wallen (but I would not choose that, it's the red light district, very noisy and crowded at night)

116 Grachtengordel

33 Jordaan

24 Nieuwmarkt en Lastage

But these are also nice neighborhoods:

78 De Pijp

12 Frederik Hendrikbuurt

31 Indische Buurt

23 Museumkwartier

133 Oost

18 Oostelijke Eilanden en Kadijken

22 Oosterparkbuurt

191 Oud-West

149 Oud-Zuid

19 Spaarndammer en Zeeheldenbuurt

21 Watergraafsmeer

10 Weesperbuurt en Plantage

20 Westelijke Eilanden

22 Zeeburg

For each apartment Airbnb also shows its rough area on the map. You probably want to stay in or near that semi-circle interspersed with semi-circular canals, called Center.
