The Perfect Houseboat, Dutch Design

  • Property description
    Amsterdam
    |
    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...

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
