Property description

Not only because of its location, at the best part of the Jordaan, in Amsterdam's historical city centre, but also because it will give you the feeling of living like a local in Amsterdam, and surrounded by the beautiful architecture and history.

This houseboat is large and it offers a romantic double bedroom and a second smaller bedroom for children, friends or if two guests want to sleep separately. Important to mention that this small bedroom is the utility room, which has a not very large double bed (120 x 200 cm or 48 x 79 in) and there is a also a drying machine. Both bedrooms have windows the terrace facing the water.

The accommodation offers too:

- A large living area with sofas, television and book shelves.
- A fully equipped open kitchen, with small fridge, stove, oven an microwave.
- Dining area with table and 4 chairs.
- Complete bathroom, with shower/bathtub, where you'll find also a washing machine.
- Nice balcony along the boat with a larger area at the end with plants, where you can sit to watch one of the most famous views in Amsterdam, the Westertoren, or just the many boats passing by.

Those with spirit of adventure and who want to enjoy the Dutch way of living on the water will have a lot of fun. No matter if you are a couple in a romantic getaway or travelling for business, there is privacy and comfortable space.


The owner lives there during the week, so you may find some belongings in some cupboards, fridge and personal stuff around the house, which gives it a homely feeling, but you have for sure your own closet and everything is totally private for you.
Also, the owner has a labrador dog, which lives there too during the week.

Area description

The Jordaan is one of the most romanticized districts of Amsterdam and even of The Netherlands. Built in the first half of the 17th century as a district for the working class and emigrants, later in the 60's taken by the hippies, the Jordaan has become now a truly exciting and diverse area to explore – one of the most expensive and upscale places in the Netherlands.

The area is famous for its cafés and restaurants, markets and funny little shops. There is a lot to do and discover, just walking around on the canals, squares and small streets is a lot of fun.
You will be walking distance to Central Station, Dam Square, Anne Frank House, Flower Market, Leidseplein and many other famous places.
