The Houseboat Amsterdam

If you are looking for somewhere different to the usual boring hotel rooms to hire in the city why not spend your holiday at the picturesque House Boat apartment?


The 17-metre long vessel on the side of the Prinsengracht canal offers instant charm and feels very old-world romantic inside. Sleeping 4 guests comfortably in 2 bedrooms and situated close to tram and bus links to Central Station in minutes this makes an ideal holiday rental property for families, friends or business travellers who need easy access to the airport and the excellent Dutch rail network.


Step back in time and experience the charming individual character of the apartment – it’s so lovely and inviting. Living on the canal is a real adventure. You will see Amsterdam from an entirely new perspective. You will feel right at home in this well designed living space. In the kitchen you will find everything you need to cook all your favourite meals for you and your guests. You will also find a table and chairs, a flat screen TV and a DVD player for your entertainment. Access to international channels is provided too. There’s wi-fi internet for you to access with all your business and leisure wireless devices – life on a house boat is very modern these days!


At the back of the boat you will find two bedrooms, each with a double bed and there is a practical shower, bathroom and of course a toilet too. No need to bring towels with you on holiday - we provide you with fresh towels and bed linen for the duration of your stay.


The romantic House Boat apartment is sure to make your holiday an unforgettable experience.



Situated on the Canal Belt, this is possibly the most beautiful district of Amsterdam. You will never tire of the exquisite 16th century warehouses, townhouses, narrow streets and little bridges that surround you.


The House Boat Apartment is so central that you are surrounded by museums, parks, international shops, cafes and wonderful nightlife. The beautiful Vondelpark is also only minutes away where your can relax in the charming Art Deco-style Blue Tea House sipping an Amsterdam coffee as you watch the wild parrots fly overhead! Alternatively you can hire bikes and cycle down the near-by Amstel River. Enjoy the windmills and beautiful countryside and visit the ancient town of Ouderkerk for a leisurely day out. The Plantage area is also nearby where you can see exotic plants in the hot-houses at the Botanical Gardens or visit the amazing Artis Zoo – one of the oldest zoos in Europe with one of the most successful animal breeding programmes in the world.


Take a walk down to the famous Waterlooplein Market where you can buy just about anything. Perfect for photo opportunities…who knows what you will find!


Take the tram out of town (or perhaps walk) and you will find yourself at Museum Square where you will find the world-famous Rijksmusem and the Van Gogh Museum. Immerse yourself in culture, art and the spectacular architecture of the area.


After long days out exploring the city you will absolutely love returning to the cosy House Boat apartment. Relax and be soothed by the gentle movement of the boat on the water as you drift off to sleep each night.
