Our cool and spacious houseboat offers all the comforts of a modern house in the setting of a canal. Two double bedrooms, a completely furbished kitchen-living, outside boardwalk and terrace with garden view. Located within the city-ring, it features excellent accessiblity to the city, while still maintaining a "private" domain with free parking available.
Close by is the former NDSM shipyard, now a popular hotspot/ art venue/ go-to place for festivals and restaurants etc.

The space

Our houseboat on the north bank of the canal "IJ" in Amsterdam covers 135 m2, over two floors and a mezzanine. A spacious and comfortable living kitchen, connected to the living-room, 2 double bedrooms with 2 bathrooms ( Please know there is 1 bathroom stool, shared upstairs), a garden and terrace/boardwalk on the canal side. Fabulous view over the canal. Parking your car is free. Please inform. quick acces to public transportation by ferry or bus to central station. ( about 20 mins)

From inside you enjoy a panoramic view of the canal. The light inside is ever-changing, following the reflections of the water. It is a very quiet and beautiful place, yet still quite central. You will wake up with the sound of ducks tattering away, and the gentle rushing of the water. At night you can light up the fire-place for warm evenings together. In summer you can lounge in a hammock in the garden, take a swim, or start a BBQ.

From our place to central station takes about 20 mins. all in all. (walk-ferry or bus etc).

Other things to note

IMPORTANT: Please Please DON'T EVER DISPOSE OF SANITARY TOWELS or other cotton-based hygienic wipes in our toilets. This will cause the sewage-pump to fail, with very serious consequences indeed. Warning signs are visible in the bathroom. Please also notify your children about this very important issue. You can put these items in the hygienic-bin beside the toilet.
Please realise that if the pump fails:

-it will sound a continuous alarm until reset by a certified plumber

-you CANNOT / MUST NOT flush or use any water whatsoever, so no shower, toilet, tap or any other water-appliance, on the risk of overflowing the lower floor with "you-know-what" because it can't be pumped away.

effectively ruining your stay for at least two days.

Please don't disregard these recommendations.

A breath taking canal boat, an outstanding experience to watch the snow fall from the floor to ceiling windows around the boat.

We stayed 4 days, 3 nights at Joost's lovely houseboat over New Years. It was the perfect location for exploring the city and for escaping the busyness of Amsterdam. The location is definitely popular with local Amsterdam people. It's quiet, artistic and up and coming. It was the perfect location to stay for New Year's Eve, because all the local Amsterdam people celebrated the night in the area to escape the tourists downtown. There are many local bars, clubs and restaurants in the area. You could see all the fireworks clearly at night which made New Year's Eve even more magical. The house is calm, warm and a great escape for anyone who wants to experience both busy Amsterdam and a relaxing holiday. It's a perfect retreat for all types of travellers: family, friends and singles. The neighbours were kind and helpful. Our trip was short however, I will 100% stay there again because we wanted to spend more cozy nights at home. It truly felt like a home away from home. Thank you!!!

We had a wonderful stay. The houseboat was beautiful and we loved being able to sit and watch the birds on the canal with a friendly cat by our side. Many thanks to Jaap for being so helpful and friendly.

We had a wonderful stay on Joost's houseboat. He was very accommodating and it was easy to get to downtown Amsterdam by ferry. The house was spacious and comfortable and we enjoyed the company of his cat. It felt like being at home, not like a hotel.

ik ben architect en woon samen met mijn man Rob sinds 10 jaar op deze plek , drie jaar geleden hebben we zelf een nieuwe woonboot laten bouwen, dus alle comfort. Wij zijn fanatieke zeilers en in de zomer dus veel op het water. Vandaar dat we onze woonboot graag willen delen.
