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.

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.

A364 Private houseboat city centre

The houseboat was in a lovely area as it's close to shops but not lots of tourists. Was really hard to get the cooker working. Loved the bath! It would have been nice to have a hairdryer especially for the price. Coffee and milk on arrival would have been a nice warm welcome. Enjoyed the stay but won't book again.

A342 Amsterdam studio apartment on canal

El propietario fue muy amable. El apartamento es muy básico, casi monacal. A pesar de que se veía más o menos limpio no le vendría mal una limpieza a fondo. En cualquier caso, solo lo usamos para dormir, con lo que fue suficiente.

A364 Private houseboat city centre

Just wanted to say what a wonderful stay we had in Amsterdam this weekend. The houseboat was amazing - from the wildlife outside the window, to the luxury shower, to the great location. We loved it and can't wait to come back in the future.

Many thanks for warm welcome of the landlords.
The House boat is very nice its easy to get there from Train station 15 min by bus in a good and safe area. Bus stop is 2 min form the h-boat and the intervals during week and WE are also good.
The picture shows the reality and all furnisher, bed are in good conditions. Good kitchen , Fridge, Dish cleaner, Bath has a tub.
Small room of improvement the Internet connection is low. But it Ok to check quick some e-mails or look for some insider tipps in web.
You should be as aware of that you are on a boat that means you have to clime steep steps to get in and out of the boat.If your bad with steps you should not go on a boat.

We would come again and recommend it as well to our friends and family.
