Description
Description
The Skippershome Houseboat Apartment is a stand-alone apartment on board of The Harbour View Houseboat. You will feel at home at this friendly floating house.

It is the perfect place for a couple or small family to relax from the buzz of the day, at just 10 minutes by bus or bicycle from the old city. You have the most amazing view you can imagine for a crowded city like Amsterdam.

This charming apartment offers a private entrance. The cozy kitchen has a 2 jet-cooking range, refrigerator, microwave/ hot-air-oven, coffee maker, pots & pans and dining table. In the fifties living room you will find a 2014’s cable TV, stereo (with I-pod connection), free Wi-FI and a sofa that is large enough to serve as an extra bed. The bathroom has a shower, washing stand, toilet and hair-dryer. It is nicely finished with marble and teak-wood. The Skippershome had two bedrooms: the big one with a double bed (1.40 X 2m), the other with a single bed (0.90 X 2 m). Here you will wake up surrounded by water, swans and ducks.

You also have a private place to sit outside and enjoy your breakfast or a glass of wine with a beautiful view. You will not share any facilities with anyone: not with other guests and not with the owner and there will be no disturbance from neighbors.

The ship is also in winter very comfortable. All rooms are centrally heated. The boat is ecofriendly: six solar panels on the roof and sun heated hot water produce about 50% of the energy usage.

Please note that the standing height in the kitchen is 1.80 meter and about 2 meter elsewhere in the apartment. It is not very suitable for very tall people.

NEIGHBORHOOD
The boat is moored in the popular Eastern Docklands (10 minutes by bicycle or bus from the old center (2.5 km)) .
In this safe and child friendly neighborhood, you will be surrounded by water, bridges, cozy boats, amazing architecture, splendid views and nice people. It's the perfect place to relax just outside the crowded old center.

Supermarkets and other shops are within a few minutes walking. Local bars and restaurants are on practically every corner around the boat.
Busses and trams you will find just around the block. The bus ride to Central Station takes only ten minutes. There is a direct tram to the Museum Quartier (Van Gogh Museum and Leidseplein night-life area) and a direct bus to Rai Congress center.

Perfekt ramme om et besøg i Amsterdam. Meget venlige værter, helt privat del af båden. Meget fint indrettet, som et hotelværelse.Vi nød pladsen i køkkenet med udsigt over havneområdet. Båden ligger i et dejligt område, med masser af muligheder for indkøb og mange skønne restaurenter og cafeer i gågang fra skibet. Man kan komme til centrum til fods langs kajen eller tage sporvognen lige uden for døren.

The hosts Vinen in the same boat but neither see nor bother you and you feel free. The house is super cool, with everything that is needed. Somewhere a little out to walk but the most quiet and beautiful views. It was a fantastic stay.

Wonderful scenery , very comfortable and cosy.
Good location not too hectic , away from city rush and about a 25min walk to Centraal. I would advise people to rent bicycles from day 1 of your stay since it is more convenient and practical to move around the wonderful city.

Mariette was very helpful and friendly , she updated us with all the necessary information and gave us useful tips about the city and how to move around. Excellent host.

The boat does move and creek when its high tide but nothing to worry about you barely notice it.

Very well I felt with my son on the houseboat. It was small and cozy and in a clean state. Almost everything you needed was available - only one tiny little thing was missing: the corkscrew. It was also nice that it is not located in the center in the middle, then you can relax better. The center was easy to reach by public transport. My son has missed the "German" TV. The hostess Mariette we had even before arrival Email Contact. She is very nice and helpful. Maybe we'll see yet again?!?

Harbour View Houseboat

We had such a great time on this houseboat! The houseboat is huge and we liked it a lot. We will definitely book this houseboat again. It was the first time for all of us on a houseboat and we totally recommend it. Never had such a relaxing city trip.
Its near the centrum, just about 20 minutes to walk or a few minutes by bus or tram, the station is very near. Its also very easy to reach from the airport by public transport. There are also two large supermarkets near the boat and a few restaurants and cafes as well. And it was very quiet.

Mariette is very lovely and helpful. We got a lot of informations and it was very nice to meet her. Thanks a lot!

Harbour View Apartment

From 7.4-11.4. 2015 I spent with a friend and our two daughters a wonderful time in Amsterdam. The houseboat is a dream, a luxury! From houseboat either reached on foot, in 20 minutes. or by bus in 10 minutes. to Centrum. Not far from the houseboat are plenty of shopping for daily use. (Grocery stores, drug store, hairdresser, bank, etc.)
It was the first time that we've done on a cruising holiday. And although we were skeptical at first, we enjoyed the time correctly. The many windows, the rooms appear very bright and friendly. The many plants give a homely feel. The large kitchen is fully equipped with everything. (Blender, coffee maker, toaster, etc.). The bathroom is very large and modern with a bath and two showers. An additional toilet is very beneficial for several people. The 3 bedrooms, of which we have but uses only two, are very nice and decorated with deliberation. Although it is on a boat, you hardly notice it, because it does not rocks. Other amenities included a fireplace and Save it. On the whole it was a great experience to spend on a boat our short holiday, I will repeat determined. Anyone who loves the water, should definitely experience the houseboat!
Mariette, the owner, is very nice and helpful. They took care of everything and touching for us was always there when we had questions or help.
Thank you for the great holiday!
