    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    If you decide to stay on a houseboat, don't just pick 'any floating home in Amsterdam'. Our boat offers a distinctive combination of retro vintage elements such as a curved ceiling and wooden walls with modern luxury. Designing this was quite a challenge, but we're proud to say we succeeded. Therefore you can watch the flatscreen tv (70 channels+) from a genuine chair of Gerrit Rietveld, one of the most famous Dutch furniture designers, and have a dinner at the vintage table of Holland’s design master Louis van Teeffelen whilst listening to your own music plugged in at the docking station.

    Bathroom and bedrooms
    The exceptional bathroom is close to a spa. The bath, half sunk in the floor, and rain shower give view on the porthole which looks out over the canal- one of the p...

    Additional Location Information
    Our houseboat in Amsterdam Oud West (Old West) is situated just a few minutes walking from must-sees such as the Dam Square, Vondelpark, Anne Frank House and the Leidse Square. And yet is is quit at night, offering a great nights sleep during your stay. Meander to the oldest part of the city called the Jordaan to enjoy the boutique shopping and fantastic food, or walk to the theatre district and enjoy the great nightlife around the Leidse Square. You'll find a large supermarket and a night shop around the corner, as well as a bike rental and various traditional bars and restaurants.

    The Da Costagracht is without a doubt one of one of the most beautiful canals in Amsterdam. Feel the peace and quiet in the heart of the city whilst being enchanted by the rippling water, swans and ducks. Nature has never been so close in the heart of one of the most historical cities in the world!

    Parking can be done both in our street and in a garage (only 8 euro/24 hour) wich is located a few m...

Our extended family of 5 had such fun staying in The Perfect Houseboat. The bathtub is wonderfully large. We had heard we might have mosquitoes in July but didn't see a single one. It was humid and in the 80s one day but the wind blowing through the houseboat when the windows were open kept us cool. It's so entertaining... more

We had an excellent stay at the property, which was exactly as advertised. Juul and Iris were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. The houseboat is comfortable and in a quiet location with good local shops and restaurants but within a short walk or tram ride of Amsterdam's main attractions. Would definitely recommend. more

I stayed on Juul and Iris' houseboat with my husband and three children (11, 9 and 6) from June 27-June 30, 2013. We enjoyed our stay tremendously- the boat is as pictured and it's clear a lot of love and attention went into its design and refurbishment. The beds are very comfortable and the location quiet. There is a fantastic... more
