Houseboat at 400 meters from the central station with 2 different, connected apartments ; the perfect place for 2 couples, five friends or a family of 6.
The minimum duration of a stay here is 3 nights.
The boat is located as the last one at the head of a pier offering both a glorious view and all the privacy you can imagine.
Both apartments have their own entrance, terrace, kitchen, bath- and bedroom but can be connected via a small passage with 2 (soundproof) doors.
The apartments are called the wheelhouse and the hold apartment. The wheelhouse has a sleeping place in the back part with a twin bed. The height is 110 cm and there are various portholes. Another sleeping possibility is the sofa bed in the wheelhouse itself.
The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, a microwave and a nespresso apparatus with as many cups as you like.
There is a shower bathroom.
Beside and in front of the apartment are 2 different terraces: here you can quietly enjoy the different forms of water life ( from ducks to tourists in canal trip boats taking pictures of you).
The hold apartment is made in the back part of the hold where once the cargo was stored.
Like the wheelhouse it is made of many different kinds of wood.
With a surface of 35 m2 it offers more space than the wheelhouse. The kitchen is fully equipped with a cooker an oven/microwave, a dishwasher and a fridge.
Four big portholes offer a view on the Oosterdok and there is also a small porthole in the shower bathroom; a loo with a view.
The woodstove is used very frequently in wintertimes but only as an addition to the central heating.
There is a twin bed and just as in the wheelhouse there is a sofa bed offering a sleeping place for a 5th (and in case of a family) a 6th person.
It is also possible to experience the water in a more dynamic way with the canoes which are for rent or with a small boat propelled by an electric outboard.
The Bambooboat is within walking distance of most of the sights the city of Amsterdam has to offer ( in fact it is hard to be more central) and it is always possible to rent bikes for the sights further away.
Those coming by car can park in the Oosterdok Parking opposite the boat for 12,50 € a day; the entrance of the parking is some 800 meters away on foot.
It offers a great view of the Oosterdok water and from this terrace you can also get into a canoe or one of the boats.
The last 8 pictures of the 24 photos show the hold apartment.
I am a carpenter living on this boat for over 30 years.
10 years ago I started to use off seasons in carpentry to build 2 apartments on the back of my boat sacrificing my workplace and the engine of the boat.
in 2011 the 2 apartments were finished.
I still do some carpentry work now but most of the time I manage the apartments and if people like I give a guided tour through Amsterdam.
Het jaar van aankoop is 1980
I have never considered living in a brick or wooden house because I dream of water all the time: this is my element.
It had to be Amsterdam for more or less the same reason;
I was not born here but I knew I belong here as soon as I set foot on Amsterdam soil.
living on a boat enabled me to shape my environment the way I liked it (the boat was bought as a freight ship) and to make a living at the same time.
The location of the boat is unique in the sense that although it is right in the middle of the town it is a secluded place.
The environment is a sort of water village in the city of Amsterdam which fortunately has escaped the attention of architects.
It is not easy to find other terraces in central Amsterdam which offer as much privacy as those on the Bambooboat; you only have to get used to the tourists in canal boats taking pictures of you while sitting on the terrace.
We were 5 women in our fifties, who stayed there for our anual break together. We enjoyed the beautiful view from the terrace and the cosy interior . We were made to feel welcome by fresh flowers and everything was clean and fresh. A map showed the supermarkets and Han was very informative. Bambooboat was placed very central and easy to find despite the roadworks. We thank you, Han, for giving us such a lovely setting for our break and for your hospitality. We would like to come back.

We were 5 women in our fifties away for our anual break together. We would like to thank Han for providing his lovely house-boat for our accomodation. The boat was full of charme with a lovely terrace overlooking the harbour and very central, and quite easy to find despite the roadworks. The boat contained everything we needed, and we were very pleased to find fresh flowers in the livingrooms. The beds were comfy and plenty of clean towels too. Nice too with a dishwasher. We also thank Han for the information on supermarkets aso.. We would all like to come back to Amsterdam and stay in the Bamboo-boat again. Thank you for your hospitallity and kind nature.
Best regards, Jeanette, Jannie, Charlotte, Mette and Bente (from Denmark) .
Tutto perfetto, barca stupenda e molto confortevole, proprietario di una gentilezza imcredibile...
The boat is located at the very centre of town with a view on the Maritime Museum, the Nemo ( Museum of science) and the library with a restaurant on top.
The Nieuwmarkt ( an old city gate) with plenty of restaurants, terraces and a super marktet is 200 meters away.
Behind it the Red Light district with various sinful entertainment and for the remorseful the Old Church.
The Rembrandt House and the Jewish Museum are at a distance of 300 meters and a little bit further the canals start; with their 6000 protected historical buildings a big museum which can be explored on foot, on bike, by canal boat trip or with a canoe or inflatable boat for rent on the Bambooboat.
The Rijksmuseum and van Gogh Museum are at the other side of the canals and can be reached by (rental) bike or by tram.
