WELCOME TO "I AM HOUSEBOAT"
Our houseboat of 100m2 has a spacious living room with a large sofa, TV and CD / DVD player and film with UPC on demand. The open kitchen with modern equipment offers the possibility to prepare your own meal at home. The basic ingredients for cooking are available for you.
The 2 bedrooms have a comfortable double bed, both with a view on the canal. The master bedroom is air-conditioned. The bathroom has a shower and a bath. Clean bedding and towels will be available for you.
The large windows along the waterside make the house very light and you can enjoy the sight of passing (canal) boats and enjoy life on the water in Amsterdam. The view on the water and the quiet Nicolaas Witsenkade in combination with the double windows make the house very quiet and peaceful from the inside, although located in a busy and exciting area of De Pijp in Amsterdam.
Experience the unique way of living on a houseboat in Amsterdam, with the comfort of all luxurious facilities.
- MOVEMENT: The houseboat is very stable so there is minimal movement, no worries for motion sickness.
- HEATING: The houseboat is well isolated and equiped with double glass windows + central heating, so warm and comfortable during colder days.
- RESTAURANTS / BARS: At the houseboat we have provided a guide with our recommendations of restaurants, bars and places to go for lunch. If you have specific questions please let us know.
YOU GET IT ALL!
The complete houseboat including outside terrace area is available for you privately during your stay. 2 Adult bikes, BBQ and a cosy patio including heater is available on the terrace for long summer night.
Breakfast is not included but available on request and will be charged separately. Several supermarkets are located within 100m and the Albert Cuyp market with big variety of fresh food is located within 300m distance.
Our houseboat is located in the heart of Amsterdam, in the popular area named 'De Pijp'. The Heineken Brewery and the famous Albert Cuyp market are very close. 'De Pijp' is popular among tourists and locals for its wide variety of bars, restaurants, shops and local market. From this location the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum, Stedelijk Museum, Concertgebouw, Vondelpark, Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein can be easily reached within a 15 minutes walk.
A good way to explore the city is by bike (2 bikes available). A different way to explore the beauty of the city centre is to take a canal cruise (almost next door). On a boat you will get the best view of the historical buildings of Amsterdam.
Public transport is available within 100m from the houseboat. Schiphol Airport takes 20 minutes by taxi and 45 minutes by train to Central Station and tram to arrive near the houseboat.
I am looking forward to welcome you in our home and offer you a great stay in Amsterdam!

Reviews of this property
Je prends quelques minutes pour vous raconter notre week-end à Amsterdam qui s'est terminé hier soir,
Après une longue route depuis la normandie nous sommes arrivés dans cette merveilleuse ville qu'est Amsterdam,
et plus particulièrement dans le House boat d'Anne Marieke qui s'est montrée très réactive et charmante lors de nos échanges par mail,
La peur de la déception d'un endroit inconnu s'est envolée lorsque nous avons été accueillis par un homme charmant qui nous a fait la visite du House boat, c'était encore mieux en vrai que sur les photos.
La terrasse immense et très bien équipée même par temps humides a fait son charme d'entrée, le vaste séjour très lumineux avec une vue pleine de charme sur le canal, les maisons traditionnelles et les perroquets comme voisins..(il faut les voir pour comprendre.. ;) )
les prestations de cuisine, salle de bains et WC sont très propres et très bien équipées, le tout dans une ambiance actuelle ce qui n'est pas pour nous déplaire, et pour finir, deux chambres très confortables avec vue sur le canal pour rester dans le charme jusqu'au bout..
En résumé, c'est bien parce qu’il y a milles choses à voir (et à manger..) dans cette ville que nous ne sommes pas restés hiberner dans cet endroit magique...
Nous gardons cette adresse précieusement!
We spent 3 days in anne's houseboat last week end, and that was great. Bedrooms were lovely, the american kitchen and the principal room was so big and very confortable.
Transport are so close that you can easily move across the city.
Thank you Anne for this moment
Anne Mariekes Houseboat is a unique place! It is very stylish, yet comfortable, spacious and cosy to stay at. Terrific views onto the canal (boat is wider than the neighbours' boats & has large windows, so best views!) including wildlife as ducks, swans and the special green parrots they have in Amsterdam! We've had an unforgettable stay on this boat. The beds are amazing to sleep in and the whole place has been very clean and well taken care of. It's a perfect location to get to know the city center on foot or by bikes (10€/day). Last but not least the host seems to be a very warm & gentle person. We were even able to leave the luggage there after check-out time. Thanks, Anne Marieke, for this special treat you gave us with your boat. Hope to see you again some day and spend some more time on the canal.
Super Hausboot. Sehr modern und mit allem Komfort ausgestattet. Ein wunderbarer Ruhepunkt im Herzen einer hektischen Großstadt. Es hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Der Kontakt mit Anne Marieke war sehr nett und die Abwicklung hat perfekt funktioniert. Sehr empfehlenswert!
We truly enjoyed our stay in Mariekes wonderful houseboat. We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful Marieke. I can only recommend a stay in her houseboat which has all you need during your stay in the beautiful city of Amsterdam.
Top Lage. Sehr schönes gepflegtes Hausboot direkt am Kanal. Die Ausstattung des Hausbootes ist sehr modern und es ist alles vorhanden was man benötigt. Beim nächsten mal gerne wieder!
Anne-Mariekes housboat is a lovely, clean and modern place. The Situation of this accommodation is perfect for enjoying the City Center of Amstrdam. We (a family) always went around by bike, anything ist in short distance from the houseboat.
We had a great time and Anne-Marieke and her family give us a very warm welcome and took care that everything is perfect. And I could tell, yes, it was perfect there. Once we will come back. Thanks for a great time.
Nice houseboat. Well located and space enough for 4 People. Clean, well equipped and a nice a atmosphere. We had a great time in Amsterdam and looking forward to our next stay. For sure we book your houseboat again.
Thanks and all the best for you.
