Description
Description
Houseboat the Orca is a beautiful spacious ship (160m2) with stunning views over the canal. The ship has a beautiful wooden interior and is fully equipped. The aft facing south has perhaps the best and broadest view on the old port of Amsterdam and on the architecturally interesting KNSM island.
Next to the ship is a raft from which you can enjoy swimming in the summer and there is a zodiac boat with electric motor available for short sailing trips (about 4 km). There are also a few bikes available. The old city center is a fifteen minute cycle ride.

The Orca has two floors. On deck there is a spacious kitchen, a study / bedroom with double bed and a cockpit with double bed. Below deck there is a large living room, three bedrooms (one with double bed, two single beds) and a bathroom with shower, hot tub, two sinks and toilet. The ship has high railings around, so it is also safe for small children.

LOCATION AND SURROUNDINGS

Docklands

At the end of the last century the Eastern Docklands was made available for housing. The architectural talent of Dutch architects was supplemented with renowned foreign architects where the old port of Amsterdam was transformed into an unparalleled new neighborhood. The fact that the old port is turned into a residential area is a wonderful example of reusing space. The specific harbor structure is preserved, where the old warehouses are refurbished with its quays and deep basins and got a new functionality. Here you will find the club Panama, a bar, restaurant and nightclub in one. The Warehouse De Zwijger is a conference center where also many exhibitions of innovative artists are shown. At the same riverfront is also one of the musical and cultural highlights of the city:The Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ. This huge, eye-catching building is equipped with a large amount of glass, so the light is magnificent, as is the appearance that the building as the night fell. Like every year more than 200 concerts, ranging from contemporary electronic pop music of the finest classical pieces of original jazz to world music cheerful uplifting. The Bimhuis, an important crossroad in the international network of improvising musicians, has also found its home here.

This cultural change in the neighborhood has its origins in the past when the harbors were weathered. Many artists and cultural leaders regions went there to resident. From this period of wild culture, the current culture belt around the IJ becomes a very attractive entertainment area. This offers something for every preference, in terms of music, theater, museums and exhibitions. There are also many restaurants, hotels and bars, all of this has caused that Eastern Docklands has become a real tourist attraction, but is also very popular amongst the locals. The neighborhood is also perfectly suitable to make a city walk. The Eastern Docklands is a beautiful setting for the history of the authentic Dutch harbor landscape.

A351 B&B Houseboat with breakfast incl.

Wir waren übers Wochenende auf dem Boot und es war einfach wunderbar. Sehr nette und immer ansprechbare Betreuung. Das Boot ist eine ganz besondere Erfahrung, sehr sauber und schön eingerichtet. Es ist sicher nichts für frisch verliebte Paare, da die Kojen etwas klein sind, aber ansonsten war der Aufenthalt sehr gelungen und wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Es ist halt ein richtiges Schiff.

We recommend this well located and spacious houseboat (bus, tram, shops, ...) within 10 minutes from the center but quiet! A very enjoyable way to dive into the special atmosphere of Amsterdam.

City centre Apartment With Garden (A338)

Very neat. Located next to the canal, small quiet garden, yet right in the center. The bathroom and separate toilet are getting a bit old, but clean and functional. The apartment is spacious, technically well equipped including WiFi.

The landlady is friendly and helpful.

Parking is in Amsterdam, of course, a problem. But we found previously in Moby-Park an enclosed underground garage relatively inexpensive, the foot is in the Valkenburgstraat the apartment.

The connection to public transport is very good, within walking distance to various trams.

Overall recommended.

A249 Private Studio on a Houseboat

Our Amsterdam experience couldn't have been any better than this. The lovely Private Studio on the houseboat was perfect for us, looking not only for Amsterdam's sightseeing attractions but an experience of the city's characteristics and peculiarities. Despite being on a boat it was very spacious, and the bathroom is even newly renovated (compared to the pics here). Even rain and storm descending on Amsterdam couldn’t ruin our stay but turned it into a romantic experience on a gently rocking boat. If you're looking for fresh flowers on the table, a luxurious breakfast at your time of the day, a relaxed sundowner sitting on the boat's terrace overlooking the canal, and a chat with the most lovely host once in a while this is for you.
