Our home

House boat in Amsterdam. Very comfortable, modern design, with abundant day light, all rooms facing the water! Located on a quiet side canal in Amsterdam, next to a park, only 10 minutes by bike from the city centre. Our house boat offers everything you'll ever want from your stay in Amsterdam. Browse the city during the day and relax in the evening watching the sun go down. Or take a dip in the canal: it's safe for swimming! Or go out at night and have breakfast the next morning while the sun warms the outside patio. The boat has decks all around, so you'll be able to sit in the sun every moment of the day. The master bed room (king size bed) accomodates two; in the study there's room for an extra inflatable bed for two.

Who we are

  1. Elsje is a production designer for film and TV. She has travelled a lot for her work, looking for movie locations. She enjoyes art, good food and the company of friends. Michiel is a dentist (endodontist = root canal specialist) and has his own private practice in the centre of Amsterdam. He enjoyes art also, and loves to ride his bike. He lectures quite frequently on his specialty, both nationally and internationally. We've lived on our boat for 8 year, and enjoy having friends over for dinner. We like the idea of exchanging our home, because it allows us to experience life in a different city from the perspective of the local people. For that same reason, we're happy to offer guests in our house a glimpse and a taste of what life in Amsterdam is really like!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Amsterdam is very well known for its canals, its museums and art galleries and for its relaxed atmosphere. Most people, when visiting Amsterdam, spend only a few days there. But there are hundreds of little gems hidden in this 17th century city. Open air day markets to buy fish and fresh produce, little secret streets with tiny shops, a choice of restaurants and bars that rivals any other European city. The relaxed atmosphere of Amsterdam is best enjoyed by foot or on a bicycle. Our two bikes are at your disposal during your stay. It's also very easy to bike north: there are some very beautiful small fishing towns that make for an inspiring day trip. Our boat is located on a canal, with only other house boats as our neigbors. There's a small marina nearby, but no heavy traffic. A five-minute walk and you'll be able to explore the old houses on the dike that used to protect the area from the sea. Amsterdam Central Station (10 minutes away) offers very good connections to major and minor cities.
