This very spacious and comfortable apartment has a great atmosphere with many nice spots to enjoy and relax: the large dining table, a cozy fire place, the inviting sundeck and of course the Jacuzzi.

The split level living room- kitchen- dining is extremely spacious with a large dining table. An awesome view is guaranteed during breakfast, lunch and dinner. A few steps down, the fire place with a surrounding sofa invites you for cozy evenings. If you like, you’ll feed the swans from the window here.

The kitchen is equipped with dishwasher, microwave, hot-air oven, coffee-maker, large refrigerator with freezer compartment and all cooking utensils you will need.

There is one double bedroom with king size bed (180 x 210 cm) One extra fold out bed can be placed in the living room (upon request). The luxurious bathroom with a marble floor has a round jetted tub and shower. The boat is very comfortable, also in wintertime, with central heating everywhere.

You have private access to your apartment and don’t share any facilities with other guests. This apartment is built in the former ship’s hold of the IDEAAL II. The former captain’s quarters form a separate apartment (Wheelhouse Apartment). Both apartments are completely stand-alone with their own entrance and sundeck.

The boat is moored in the popular Eastern Docklands, not more than 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.

You can totally relax here from the buzz of the day while any hotspot in Amsterdam is within 20 minutes reach.

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!

Houseboat Apartment "Skippers Home"

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.

Lovely boat, very well equipped and maintained.

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.

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!

Houseboat Apartment "Skippers Home"

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?!?

A lovely boat. I was so excited when I walked inside and saw how beautiful it was. It was large with all amenities. The bathroom was amazing with walk in rain shower and lovely bath. What a treat! I would love to come back and spend more time there. Was great that we were allowed to stay for a weekend as many house boats state they need a minimum of 3 nights. Thank you Mariette! I would highly recommend this boat.
