This houseboat is located on the Wittenkade, located in the Westerpark district, right next to the liveliest neighborhood of Amsterdam, the Jordan. Here you will find many bars, restaurants and shops, interspersed with beautiful canals, narrow streets and a variety of historic buildings. The Jordan borders the famous Nine Little Streets where you will find many small shops and cozy restaurants. Within walking distance you will find highlights such as the Anne Frank House, the Westerkerk, Dam Square, the Royal Palace and Amsterdam Historical Museum. The nearby Westerpark is reachable by foot, here you can relax and enjoy live music in one of the many bars. In the park you will find a classic part in Victorian style, a great cultural programme and a rougher area with paths for walkers and runners. In the park you also find the Espressofabriek with simply the best coffee in town. The Central Station and Leidseplein are 15 minutes away on foot.

This spacious houseboat (90 m2) has a retro design and features three bedrooms and access to bicycles to explore Amsterdam! In the living room you will find a great orange leather sofa and a comfortable black / white leather armchair. In the corner is a large dining table present. The living room is equipped with all electronic amenities, TV, DVD, tuner and iPod speakers. Kitchen is beautifully finished with a wooden worktop and equipped with a dishwasher, oven and an espresso machine. The master bedroom contains a double bed (140 x 200cm) and the other two both have a single bed (with headboard 90, footboard 150 to 200cm). On request there is a baby bed available. The modern and bright bathroom contains a luxury bathtub and shower.

For warmer days you can stay on the lovely private terrace or on the roof of the boat for a terrific view over the canal. You want to explore Amsterdam the way inhabitants do? Take one of the bicycles which are included: a cargo bike, a bike with child seat and 2 children’s bikes (for 6/7-years and 9/10-years).

Neighborhood: Westerpark






Adjacent to the center is the sparkling district Westerpark. The name of this field comes from the modern park, where it is bubbling with energy. In Westergasfabriek you find trendy cafes, fine eateries, galleries, a cinema and a progressive club.

You can just come to relax in nature or come to enjoy live music in one of the many bars. You will find a classic part in Victorian style, a great deal of cultural offerings and a rougher area with paths for walkers and runners. In the park you also find the Espressofabriek with simply the best coffee in town. The district is attractive by the friendly ambience.

On the site where formerly a large gasworks was located, nowadays there is something to do the whole day. You can go there for breakfast, high tea or a sandwich with artisan bread in a relaxed environment. A little further down you can go eating, drinking and dancing from morning until late into the night. There is also a special cinema where mainly Dutch, but also European films will be screened.

Just past Westergasfabriek, you will find Cafe Restaurant Amsterdam at the Water Tower Square, formerly a giant gasmachine from 1900: a special place, with tasty and affordable food.

The neighborhood is easily accessible from the highway and is also within walking distance from the Central Station. Frequent connection to public transport in the area is also provided.

City centre Apartment With Garden (A338)

Sehr ordentlich. Direkt an der Gracht gelegen, kleiner ruhiger Garten und doch mitten im Zentrum. Das Bad und die separate Toilette sind etwas in die Jahre gekommen, aber sauber und funktionstüchtig. Das Appartment ist geräumig, technisch gut ausgestattet einschließlich WLAN.

Die Vermieterin ist freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Das Parken ist in Amsterdam natürlich ein Problem. Wir fanden aber vorab bei Moby-Park eine abgeschlossene Tiefgarage relativ günstig, die in der Valkenburgstraat fußläufig zum Appartment liegt.

Die Anbindung an den öffentlichen Nahverkehr ist sehr gut, wenige Fußminuten zu verschiedenen Straßenbahnen.

Insgesamt empfehlenswert.

A249 Private Studio on a Houseboat

Our Amsterdam experience couldn't have been any better than this. The lovely Private Studio on the houseboat was perfect for us, looking not only for Amsterdam's sightseeing attractions but an experience of the city's characteristics and peculiarities. Despite being on a boat it was very spacious, and the bathroom is even newly renovated (compared to the pics here). Even rain and storm descending on Amsterdam couldn’t ruin our stay but turned it into a romantic experience on a gently rocking boat. If you're looking for fresh flowers on the table, a luxurious breakfast at your time of the day, a relaxed sundowner sitting on the boat's terrace overlooking the canal, and a chat with the most lovely host once in a while this is for you.

A263 Sunny private houseboat close to Vondelpark & Leidseplein

We just returned from a lovely weekend at the houseboat. A great place to have some peace and chill time but be close enough to walk to the action!
