The romantic and authenic Captains cabin is located on the Keizersgracht near to the brouwersgracht and is suited for up to 2 persons.
The houseboat is situated within walking distance to everything Amsterdam has to offer.
The houseboat is a monumental, authentic ship built in 1927 with a beautiful Berkel motor that is still running, the only one in the Netherlands.
One bedroom with a doublebed
A private entrance and your own key code means you can come and go as you please.
The boat is available for short stays but also for longer periods.
The captains cabin is in the authentic style that makes it a really special, romantic and origanal way of spending your holiday in Amsterdam.
A cosy sleepingcabin with a double bed and LCD with DVD, a sweet little living, seperate shower and toilet, refridgerator and microwave., central heating and an electric heater, so even in the winter its warm and cosy.
Upstairs you can enjoy a drink sitting in the rudder room with the original rudder and a view on the beautifull canal. Its completed with a nespresso and a waterboiler.
You can also have your drink sitting outside on the deck.
Towels, linnen, coffee, tea is all included.
Note that: Its a special, authentic cabin and you are in the best area of Amsterdam for a great price, but don't expect de Hilton. It was really, 100 years ago, the captains cabin, therefore its about 1.80 metres high, with other areas where its 2.20 metres high and there is a small but steep stairs.
The houseboat is situated in the center, the middle of the Jordaan neighborhood, within walking distance from Amsterdam Central Station. The small houses are typical of a neighborhood built for the working class and migrants. In the sixties a large-scale renovation of the old buildings took place. Families with children left and entrepreneurs and students came to take their place. The Jordaan, bursting with intimate boutiques, café's and restaurants, is the ideal place to live!
Situated in the immediate vicinity are various places of interest and museums such as the Anne Frank House, the Westertoren, the Palace on Dam Square, Madame Tussauds and the trendy Westerpark with plenty of new places to eat and drink. The Jordaan itself is home to a number of old ‘hofjes', publicly accessible courtyards such as the Lindenhofje and the Looyershofje which are certainly worth a visit. On a Saturday you can combine a visit to a ‘hofje' with a stroll around the organic farmers' market or the Antiques/Brocante Market. Or wander around the famous 9 streets, picturesque shopping streets full of heritage-listed buildings. It's a trendy neighbourhood with flagship stores and branches of every luxury chain.
Amsterdam's vibrant night life is in close proximity to the boat. Around 10 minute walk ing away are the Leidseplein and the Rembrandtplein, where you'll find the bigger clubs like Jimmy Choo, The Escape and Club Air.
Amsterdam is yours to explore when you rent a bike from one of the nearby rental facilites. It's the perfect way to get around this lively city!

Toller Aufenthalt, super Unterkunft, wie haben die 4 Tage sehr genossen. Sehr zentral gelegen und mit dem Fahrrad alles gut erreichbar!
Es war ein schöner Aufenthalt in Amsterdam
Was sehr schön war war die Lage des Bootes
Wir waren gleich am Bahnhof und in der Innenstadt
Leider funktionierte das Wi-Fi nicht so gut
Problematisch war auch das Bett das für zwei Personen sehr sehr klein ist
Für kleine Leute gut geeignet aber für große eher schlecht
Es hat gut geklappt mit der Schlüsselübergabe und abgabe
Wir hätten uns gewünscht bei 14 Tagen das mal jemand zum sauber machen kommt oder das Bett mal frisch bezieht
Für ein paar Tage gut geeignet aber für einen längeren Aufenthalt schwierig
Besonders wenn das Wetter schlecht ist und man nicht raus kann
Wir hatten aber gutes Wetter
beautiful, quiet and central location. the boat is small but clean and cozy. great it is to sit on the deck. Unfortunately, there's a point deduction for the toilet because the seat is too high and can only be overcome acrobatic. It is also important that the ceiling height is only 180 cm! (that was not on our German website translated). Otherwise you can spend in the boat beautiful romantic days.
Helaas kan ik geen beoordeling maken, omdat het woonboot, dat ik gereserveerd had, dubbel bezet was. Ik vond het erg jammer, dat dit zo gelopen is. Er werd wel een oplossing voor mij gevonden, daar ben ik zeer dankbaar voor.
Verder zou ik het zeer op prijs stellen, als ik geen reclame meer van jullie ontvang. Bedankt en met vriendelijke groet,
Supercharming, small accomodation in an absolute prime location in Amsterdam. Really, you dont want to live anywhere else! Since it was on the smaller side I give it an 8 rating. But with a really nice and welcoming host it gott to be a 10.
Ein tolles Hausboot, super zentral gelegen, sehr gemütlich; ideal für zwei Personen. Wir kommen bestimmt noch einmal wieder!
Very cozy place and a perfect location in one of the niciest area in Amsterdam.
Great to sit up in the cabin and enjoy the city and canal life just outside the window.
