Our houseboat is situated in the heart of central historical Amsterdam. The Nieuwe Prinsengracht is a side canal of the Amstel, which is the main canal, and is off the beaten track of the big tourist canal cruise boats. This makes this area very suitable for a quiet stay, although you are in de centre of Amsterdam .
Whenever we have to stay in Amsterdam (our main residence is in Den Haag) we always enjoy the peace and quite of living on the water. Swans and other birds pass our boat and come to see if there is some bread left for them and on summer days you can see people enjoying a day on the water on their own boats cruising the canals.
Our houseboat is, like most Amsterdam houseboats, small (approx. 42m2). But everything you need is there, we economized the living space. There is a small kitchen with microwave, oven, dishwasher and stove. A washing machine and dryer are also available. The living room has a table with chairs, a large couch, TV and there is WIFI internet available. In the bathroom you will find a bath with shower, wash basin and toilet. The bedroom has a small closet and a large kingsize bed.
The houseboat lies a short walk from the metro station which takes you to the Central Station of Amsterdam in 2 stops (5 minutes). Trains from Amsterdam Central Station to Schiphol Airport bring you every 10 minutes within 20 minutes to the airport (very convenient so don't bother the hassle of an expensive Amsterdam taxi).
Also the Hermitage museum the Rijksmuseum and the world famous van Goghmuseum are in the vicinity. For those who love to shop and enjoy nice cafes and restaurants, you can all find this in our neighborhood. We also put some information in our houseboat with some tips, to get you started...
And of course it will be nice for you to know that our houseboat was completely renovated in 2011.
We will also provide you with a complimentary breakfast for your first morning in Amsterdam!

Reviews of this property
June 2015

Wir hatten im Mai 2015 fünf Übernachtungen gebucht. Angesichts des hohen Preises gingen wir davon aus, dass alles tiptop wäre. War es leider nicht. Die Nachttischlampe funktionierte nicht, sobald man die Spülmaschinentür aufgemacht hat, ist das Brett unter den Küchenschränken abgefallen, und die Dusche war nicht benutzbar, da der Thermostat kaputt war und nur heißes Wasser rauskam, das sich regulieren ließ. Außerdem war alles nur notdürftig geputzt, es wurde quase nach unseren Vorgängern keine Grundreinigung durchgeführt. Es wurde nach der Reklamation zwar alles zwei Tage später repariert, aber den Ärger hatten wir doch. Würde hierfür nicht mehr so viel Geld ausgeben.

We spent 5 nights at the beautiful houseboat of Jolanda and Simon. The location is highly recommended. The center is actually very easy to reach. Nevertheless, the boats go by in front of the house does not always boot, what you see is pleasant. The boat is very nicely furnished, with everything all you can eat (even with washer and dryer!). For questions, Simon has immediately helped us very nice and helpful. The bikes we rented were with, perfect for exploring by Amsterdamm. Man / woman had only to get used to the coaster brake compared to the usual disc brakes on mountain bike have a "really impressive" performance. But in Amsterdam before everything is relaxed and "smoother" than ours. For the nice welcome, there was a bottle of prosecco and the shopping for the first breakfast was already in the fridge. Tip for parking: Simon us hate to recommend a guarded P + R car park to use. (Very good tip!) We had the "small print" not read correctly in the day did not cost € 8 instead of 22 €. The trick is to get the ticket at the barrier necessarily in a P + R ticket exchange at the counter!

Spectacular Water Villa Amsterdam

Wir haben ein wunderbares langes Wochenende auf dem Hausboot verbracht. Es ist nicht nur hübsch eingerichtet, sondern auch bestens ausgestattet. Als es ein kleines technisches Problem gab, war Simon sofort da, um es zu beheben. Toller Service!

Spectacular Water Villa Amsterdam

Das Hausboot ist sehr gepflegt eingerichtet und alles ist Tip Top in Schuß.
Besonders die Aussenterasse ist der Highlight, da kann mann am frühen morgen im Sonnenschein sitzen während auf den Fußwegen noch alle warm angezogen sind.
Bei auftretenden Fragen oder Problemen ist Simon immer über Telefon zu erreichen, das nenne ich erstklassigen Service.
Wir kommen gerne wieder... Danke!
