    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    The 'On the Water Studio' is a very charming houseboat located just five minutes walk from Leidseplein, in the old center of Amsterdam. The pictures will say more than we can describe here.

    The Museum Square, the Flower Market, the Jordaan, the beautiful Vondelpark and many other highlights are also within few minutes reachable on foot.

    Moored on a quiet canal, this studio offers everything any other accommodation would, but more than that, you will live the Dutch way to be “On the Water”.
