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.

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.

Wow, what can I say. We had the most amazing time staying in this Appartment. It was so beautiful and comfortable, like the name of it, it was very artistic.Everything was there for us. We walked round the Appartment for ages, just looking at all the artwork on the walls, which were amazing. Would highly recommend staying here. We would defiantly go back again and again.

A263 Sunny private houseboat close to Vondelpark & Leidseplein

We just returned from a lovely weekend at the houseboat. A great place to have some peace and chill time but be close enough to walk to the action!

It was a great weekend on the boat, I would recommend it to everyone who wants to go to Amsterdam. 2 minutes away from the bus stop and then about 15 minutes to the city. The boat was clean and very comfortable.

Perfekt! Super-nette Vermieter, die für ein Rund-um-sorglos-Paket gesorgt haben. Die Fotos in der Beschreibung waren genau so, wie wir unsere Unterkunft vorgefunden haben. Es gibt überhaupt nichts, was wir zu bemängeln hätten. Deshalb gibt es von uns einfach nur eine uneingeschränkte Weiterempfehlung.
