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.

Neighborhood: Docklands

Persons: 4-8 persons

Smoking: smoking outside on the deck



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.

Das Hausboot hat den Charme des Alten. Die Betten waren ein wenig hart, bzw. die eine Matratze durchgelegen. Um zur Dusche zu kommen, musste man durch eine Luke von der Küche in den Maschinenraum klettern und diesen durchqueren. Sehr originell. Bei der Frühstücksbox handelte es sich um ein Paket Käse für drei Tage, Orangensaft, Milch und ein wenig Marmelade. Dazu Brötchen, die Abends für den nächsten Tag gebracht wurden. Am Abreisetag haben wir keine Brötchen mehr bekommen, was uns ein wenig geärgert hat. Für jemanden, der das Einfache mag und schon immer mal in einer Koje schlafen wollte ist es ok.

A143 Family house with free parking

Es ist ein Reihenhaus, direkt an einem der Seitenarme des Hafens gelegen. Leider ankern direkt vor dem großen Wohnzimmerfenster ein paar rostige Kähne. Das Haus ist gastfreundlich; sehr ruhig gelegen; freundliche Nachbarn. Nach einem kleinen Fußweg erreicht man sehr gut sortierte Geschäfte sowie Straßenbahn und Bus, die in wenigen Minuten die City erreichen. Das Haus ist uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen.
Die Agenten von Wimdu, die uns den Schlüssel übergaben, waren nicht über den Parkplatz informiert, der zum Haus gehört. Erst die freundliche Nachbarin klärte uns darüber auf, dass sich die Garage unter dem Haus befindet, und zeigte uns die Zufahrt zu dieser Tiefgarage. Einige Zeilen der Besitzerin des Hauses zur Einführung der Gäste wäre sehr hilfreich.

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.
