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.

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.

Sehr nette Wohnung auf dem Schiff. Sehr nette und hilfsbereite Vermieter. Boot ist sehr schön gelegen. Hat alles sehr gut funktioniert. Mit dem Fahrrad sehr schnell in der Innenstadt von Amsterdam. Einkaufmöglichkeiten und gute Restaurants sehr gut zu Fuß zu erreichen.

Los anfitriones vinen en el mismo barco pero ni lo ves ni te molestan y te sientes libre. La casa es super chula, con todo lo que se necesita. En un sitio un poco alejado para ir andando pero de lo mas tranquilo y bonitas vistas. Fue una estancia fantastica.

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.

Sehr wohl habe ich mich mit meinem Sohn auf dem Hausboot gefühlt. Es war klein und gemütlich und im sauberen Zustand. Fast alles was man brauchte war vorhanden - nur eine winzige Kleinigkeit fehlte: der Korkenzieher. Es war auch schön, dass es nicht mitten im Zentrum liegt, dann kann man sich besser entspannen. Das Zentrum war gut mit den Verkehrsmitteln zu erreichen. Mein Sohn hat das "Deutsche" Fernsehen vermisst. Mit der Gastgeberin Mariette hatten wir auch schon vor Anreise Email Kontakt. Sie ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Vielleicht sehen wir uns ja noch mal wieder?!?

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!

It is also in a very convenient location being just 10 minutes from the Central Station by bus which makes it a great base to explore Amsterdam from.

Thank you Mariette.

Harbour View Apartment

Vom 7.4-11.4. 2015 verbrachten ich mit einer Freundin und unseren beiden Töchtern eine wunderschöne Zeit im Amsterdam. Das Hausboot ist ein Traum, ein Luxus! Vom Hausboot gelangt man entweder zu Fuß, in 20 min. oder mit dem Bus in 10 min. zum Centrum. Nicht weit vom Hausboot sind viele Einkaufsmöglichkeiten für den täglichen Gebrauch. (Lebensmittelgeschäfte, Drogerie, Friseur, Bank, etc.)
Es war das erste Mal, dass wir auf einem Hausboot Urlaub gemacht haben. Und obwohl wir zuerst skeptisch waren, haben wir die Zeit richtig genossen. Durch die vielen Fenster, wirken die Räume sehr hell und freundlich. Die vielen Pflanzen geben ein Häusliches Gefühl. Die große Küche ist komplett mit allem Ausgestattet. (Mixer, Kaffeemaschine, Toaster, etc.). Das Bad ist mit eine Badewanne und zwei Duschen sehr groß und modern eingerichtet. Eine zusätzliche Toilette ist für mehrere Personen sehr vorteilhaft. Die 3 Schlafzimmer, von denen wir aber nur zwei benutzt haben, sind sehr schön und mit Überlegung eingerichtet. Obwohl man sich auf einem Boot befindet, merkt man es kaum, da es überhaupt nicht schaukelt. Zu weiteren Annehmlichkeiten gehörten ein Kamin und ein Save dazu. Im Ganzen war es eine tolle Erfahrung auf einem Boot unseren Kurz-Urlaub zu verbringen, den ich bestimmt wiederholen werde. Wer das Wasser liebt, sollte auf jeden Fall das Hausboot erleben!
Mariette, die Besitzerin, ist sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Sie hat sich um alles rührend gekümmert und war für uns immer da, wenn wir Fragen oder Hilfe hatten.
Vielen Dank für den tollen Urlaub!
