The roof is an excellent place to enjoy the sunshine.Our dog, Neve, likes to look over the canal and keeps an eye on the boat ;-).

Welcome! This cute old style Dutch boat is docked on a pier attached to our 2-floor apartment on a canal in Amsterdam (IJburg). Inside you will find 1 bed (sleeps two), 2 small couches a small fridge and wifi.

Shower, toilet, washer, dryer, kitchen are shared and available in our main house.

Note that getting on the boat and moving inside takes some flexibility.

During summer book a separate trip on our fast boat (60 pk) and experience IJmeer, the canals from the water.

The space

Staying on your own boat on the water in Amsterdam adds a special flavor to your stay in the city of canals.

Guest access

You get your own keys to our house and the boat.

Our house is a 2 story apartment in an apartment building. To get to the boat, first you enter the house at street level and walk through our hall directly to the stairs that take you to -1 water level. At the -1 level you will find your bathroom and toilet. You share this with our three kids. At -1 level you exit our house to enter the pier and walk to the boat.

You can use our kitchen to prepare a meal. Also you can use our washing machine and dryer.

We provide linen and towels.

Interaction with guests

Our family consists of 5: my husband Marc and me, our 3 Brazilian kids (Leticia 20, Felipe 16 and Lucimari 14), our 2 dogs and 1 cat.

Whenever you like we interact but since you are on the boat and we are in the main house, you can have all the privacy you wish.

Other things to note

To stay on a boat is a special experience. It takes flexibility to get onto to the boat and to move around in it. Expect cosy surroundings.

Parking: if you come by car, we advice to park your car 5 minutes from our house in a parking garage. Cost: EUR 5,00 per 24 hours.

Fantastic and lovely accommodation, a little bit cold on the boat (winter) but a heater can be provided. Host is absolutely fantastic, shared spaces were really lovely and kept in a good condition. We were very comfortable and would highly recommend it. Very quiet and romantic setting on the boat. Flowers, beer and chocolate were given on arrival which was a very thoughtful touch. Boat ceiling and door way is low so mind your head if your above 6ft.

Marcelle was amazing! She took time to talk with us about our visit and give us reccomendations of things do to and see while we were in town. The boat was exactly what we were looking for too, a great location right near a tram stop made it very easy to get around and sightsee.

The boat is lovely in a beautiful part of Amsterdam. Access to the centre is very easy and it is great to escape the madness once you're there! Great hosts, very useful in helping us get there. The boat is awesome!!!
