Houseboat Apartment "Skippers Home"
- Family/child friendly
- Smoking allowed
|Address||Verbindingsdam, 1019BD Amsterdam, Netherlands|
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.

This boat is absolutely wonderful! I was staying for a week with 2 friends, we felt so lucky for having such a great accommodation!
Mariette is very nice and friendly and - I have to say - patient. We damaged one of our bikes, got there late because of planes, and left later than planned too because of a massive alarm fail, but she kept her cool and remained helpful. Much admiration!
The boat was clean and had everything we needed. Electric plug adapters, maps and guides of the city, Dominoes, appropriate cables for the TV and sound system, plenty of towels, and a pretty amazingly complete and compact kitchen area. We really enjoyed the boat rocking a bit when it was windy :)
Would love to come again if that's possible. And I would most definitely recommend this place!
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.
Very nice apartment on the ship. Very nice and helpful landlord. Boat is very nice. It all works very well. By bike very quickly in downtown Amsterdam. Shops and good restaurants very easy to reach on foot.
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.
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.
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.
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?!?
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?!?
The apartement was very nice and clean and we loved the fact that it was on a boat. Mariette was always friendly and had good tips.
The boat is very nice, everythink you need is on the board. The place around is very quiet and well located. My company was very pleased with apartment. Thanks.
