    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    For a very romantic and original getaway, in one of the best areas in the old city centre of Amsterdam, this houseboat is your vacation rental! Read the excellent reviews from previous guests.

    Also for business, short or long stay, it couldn't be more ideal, because it offers privacy, space and comfort, with Internet, desk for work, big table for meetings - or a loving dinner - and the advantage of being very central, walking distance to Central Station, Dam Square, Anne Frank House and many other hot spots.

    Located in the Jordaan, you will find there not only history and culture, but fun too, because this neighborhood is famous for the variety of cafés, restaurants, markets and its bohemian life.

    Additional amenities include: cot, fan / extractor, gas, patio/deck/terrace, kitchen...

    Additional Location Information
    The Jordaan is “the place to be” if you’re looking for charm and personality. Culture, history and diversity assemble in each corner.
    It was once a very poor area of Amsterdam, taken by the hippies on the 60's, and now has become a truly exciting and diverse area to explore. Its cafés and the Dutch people hanging around have a different character, comparing with other areas of the city. There are hundreds of small shops, funny Amsterdam houses, churches and museums, all within a short walk of your accommodation.
    There is also the convenience of being close to Central Station, Anne Frank House, Dam Square, Leidseplein, the Flower Markt and The Nine Little Streets.

    Saturdays Market: Noordermarkt (eco market) and Lindengracht (food and clothes)

    Mondays Market: Noordermarkt (second hand) and Westerstraat (fabrics and cloths)

When we arrived Karin's Mom gave us a friendly welcome. She went over the houseboat and pointed things out & told us to use whatever we wanted from fridge. We were given a binder with some suggestions and ticket info. The boat itself was a little worn in places, but comfortable (The bed was very comfortable). The first night the... more

Charming home on the Prinsengracht canal. The location in the Jordaan was ideal for experiencing life as an Amsterdam local and convenient for walking/biking to all the city's attractions. The Jordaan is a lively area, full of great cafes and restaurants, shops, and parks. Karins houseboat offered the comforts of home - fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, an outside eating area... more

Despite all that Amsterdam offers the tourist, it was very difficult to tear ourselves away from the boat. The immediate vicinity had a buzzing atmosphere by day and quiet by night. The quaint bars and laid back local life was a welcome relaxation after a day's sightseeing. At the same time the boat is only 5 minutes walk from the... more
