- Engels, Duits, Nederlands
Hi, I'm Frank! I love to travel and meet new people, to have nice diners with my close friends and family. And I'm happy that you're looking at my houseboat to have your holiday in! I just started to rent it in certain periods, so I don't have reviews yet. But I travel a lot myself and I'm sure you'll have a great time at my houseboat! If you have any questions, please let me know, because I love to help you out. Hopefully meet you soon! Frank
Wat deze vakantiewoning zo uniek maakt
My houseboat is located in one of the most beautiful and tranquil canals in Amsterdam Centre. The views are fantastic, and I'm sure you'll love seeing the ducks and swans floating by, in combination with all the boats with people enjoying the sights over the canal where you live in! :) I'm sure you'll have a great time here!

Very beautiful houseboat at a great location
We had a very nice time at this houseboat. It was our first stay at a houseboat, and that's an experience you don't want to miss in Amsterdam. The boat was situated right across a beautiful park, English style. It was very quiet, but just around the corner of all the fuzz. The kids loved this place, especially feeding the duck through the window :-)
Superb houseboat experience!
We had a fantastic stay in this houseboat! It was our first time on a houseboat, and we simply loved it! Especially feeding the swans from the windows!
It's location was great for us, just 4 minutes walk from the city centre on a beautiful and peaceful canal. We loved coming "home" after a busy day of sight seeing. (just around the corner are really nice restaurants and bars too, if you want to have a relaxed night out.)
We received a very warm welcome, communication was easy and fast. Lots of tips on places to go, which was highly appreciated!
We are very happy to have stayed here, and we warmly recommend it everyone!
I'm really happy that you enjoyed your stay so much! It was my pleasure having you as my guests, and you're always welcome to come back!
Awesome experience! Highly recommend!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the houseboat! It was exactly as described and very comfortable! Frank met us and gave us an overview of the space when we first arrived including several recommendations for dinner and area nearby.
The houseboat was very comfortable and in a VERY quiet area - minimal boat or car traffic. It was very easy to walk to and from all over the city.
If you want a thoroughly authentic houseboat experience - then this if for you!
4 tolle Tage in Amsterdam
Wir haben zu viert auf dem Hausboot 4 Nächte verbracht, Frank ist wirklich ein sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber. Der Cava zur Begrüßung auch eine sehr schöne Geste, vielen Dank nochmal. Die Lage des Hausboots perfekt, im Hausboot alles vorhanden, auf der Bank vor dem Eingang des Hausboots konnten wir auch ganz gut sitzen, im Sommer wäre vielleicht eine privatere Terrasse für den Ausklang des Abends noch schön. Alles in Allem einfach unkompliziert und schön.
This houseboat was perfect for our trip. Nice quiet area but within walking distance to everything. The boat was a great size for the three of us but four would be comfortable. Frank was very easy to deal with and was very accessible at all times. I highly recommend this houseboat and Frank if you are planning a trip to Amsterdam.
Great Houseboat...Perfect Amsterdam Experience
This is a great property. It has everything you could want, location, setting, and convenience. Frank is a very informative and helpful.
The houseboat is an excellent start to explore the city! Because of the spacious canal and the botanical garden, the direct area of the houseboat feels really tranquil. And if you go around the corner you are right in the middle of some of the top attractions in Amsterdam! And since the centre of Amsterdam is really compact, everything is within easy walking distance! You could also hire a bike around the corner, and experience Amsterdam in my favorite way (highly recommended!).
Just walk around the corner, and you will find many nice typically Amsterdam cafés, restaurants and terraces. For example, have an excellent pizza at “De Pizzabakkers”, have sushi at Tempura, or grab a drink at “Café Koosje”, or enjoy the terraces at Kadijksplein next to the waterlock.
The famous Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) is just around the corner at the river Amstel. You’ll walk there in less than 6 minutes along the canal where the houseboat is situated. It provides pretty views on the river Amstel. Here you will also find the beginning of the world heritage “Grachtengordel” with all the beautiful canal houses.
The Hermitage museum is just around the corner, 5 minutes walking from the houseboat. This historic building currently hosts beautiful expositions on the Golden Age in the Netherlands. It is located along the same canal as the Royal Theatre Carré.
The historic zoo “Artis” is only 5 minutes walking from the houseboat, as is the entrance of the botanical gardens on which you have such beautiful views from the houseboat.
There is a really nice every day flee market at Waterlooplein square, which is only 5 minutes easy walking away. Here you will also find excellent metro connections, going every 2 minutes to for example Nieuwmarkt square (2 minutes; many bars and terraces, Red light district) and Central station (4 minutes).
From Waterlooplein, it is only a minute walking to the world famous “Rembrandtshuis” museum, where Rembrandt lived (the painter of “De Nachtwacht” now at Rijksmuseum). After visiting, enjoy a drink at “Café Sluyswacht” next door! From there, walk another 5 minutes to go end up in the Red Light District (adult entertainment) or at the Nieuwmarkt (with many nice restaurants and bars!).
The bars and restaurants of Rembrandtplein square are only 5 minutes by bike along the beautiful historic canals! The famous museums (Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum) and the Leidseplein square are only 13 minutes by bike!
You will find many cafes and restaurants just around the corner. We would be happy to show some of the nicest! For example, a really nice place to have breakfast or a drink is the “Hoftuin”, located in a lovely historic garden. It is only 4 minutes walking. And if you want to have a drink along the waterside in the sun, cycle in 9 minutes to the laid back “Hannekes Boom” near Central Station.
There is so much to see and do in Amsterdam! We truly believe the houseboat is an excellent start to explore the city! You will enjoy your stay here very much!
The houseboat is also an excellent place to stay if you are in Amsterdam for a convention in convention center RAI. It will take you less than 15 minutes to cycle there, along the beautiful Amstel river! By public transport it is less than 30 minutes. Enjoying city centre Amsterdam life on a typical Dutch houseboat during your stay will make your visit truly special!
The supermarket "SPAR" is located at only three minutes walking from the houseboat.
