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.

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.

Unkomplizierte Übergabeprozess :-)

Das Boot ist ein Traum, alles sehr sauber und in einem Top Zustand.
Kann man wirklich nur empfehlen.
Das Zentrum erreicht man mit dem Bus in 15 Minuten.

Wir würden dieses Boot jederzeit wieder mieten und hatten einen unvergesslichen Aufenthalt.

Die Gastgeberin hat uns herzlich empfangen und wir würden diese Unterkunft jedem weiterempfehlen, der in Amsterdam ruhig wohnen aber dennoch zentral das Städtchen erkunden möchte.

A358 B&B on houseboat on the city centre Amsterdam

Wir danken Myra für die tolle Erfahrung auf einem Hausboot ein paar Nächte zu verbringen. Das Hausboot ist modern und hell eingerichtet, mit einer Schlafnische.
Man kann die Umgebung zu Fuss erkunden, da alles sehr zentral gelegen ist.
Das Oberdeck lädt zum chillen ein, von dort aus kann man das "Leben" auf der Amstel am besten beobachten.
Es war ein toller Aufenthalt, wir kommen bestimmt wieder.

A341 Sunny, child friendly apartment 4-7 persons

Jan and Diette (owners) were very helpful and friendly, they left comprehensive information about how to get around, which we found invaluable. The apartment was spacious and clean and tidy. I would have no hesitation recommending this apartment to a friend. It is located in a pleasant area of Amsterdam opposite a large park about 10 minutes by bus or tram from the centre. Taxi fare back to the apartment late at night for 5 occupants was less than 20 euros. There are plenty of local shops and restaurants no more than 5 minute walk away. The apartment is in a quiet area of Amsterdam.

Das war ein tolles Wochenende. Amsterdam ist unglaublich schon und dazu dann die unglaublich tolle Unterkunft, mit so viel Liebe eingerichtet, was will man mehr!. Es ist alles da, was man braucht! Myra ist zudem sehr nett und hilfsbereit wenn es um Fragen rund um Einkaufen, Verkehrsnetz sowie Sehenswertes geht. Es hat alles so unkompliziert und entspannt geklappt - das ist Urlaub!
Wir werden Myra und ihre Unterkunft mit Sicherheit noch einmal besuchen.
