The romantic and authenic Captains cabin is located on the Keizersgracht near to the brouwersgracht and is suited for up to 2 persons.

The houseboat is a monumental, authentic ship built in 1927 with a beautiful Berkel motor that is still running, the only one in the Netherlands.
One bedroom with a doublebed
A private entrance and your own key code means you can come and go as you please.
The boat is available for short stays but also for longer periods.
The captains cabin is in the authentic style that makes it a really special, romantic and origanal way of spending your holiday in Amsterdam.
A cosy sleepingcabin with a double bed and LCD with DVD, a sweet little living, seperate shower and toilet, refridgerator and microwave., central heating and an electric heater, so even in the winter its warm and cosy.
Upstairs you can enjoy a drink sitting in the rudder room with the original rudder and a view on the beautifull canal. Its completed with a nespresso and a waterboiler.
You can also have your drink sitting outside on the deck.
Towels, linnen, coffee, tea is all included.
Note that: Its a special, authentic cabin and you are in the best area of Amsterdam for a great price, but don't expect de Hilton. It was really, 100 years ago, the captains cabin, therefore its about 1.80 metres high, with other areas where its 2.20 metres high and there is a small but steep stairs.
The houseboat is situated in the center, the middle of the Jordaan neighborhood, within walking distance from Amsterdam Central Station. The small houses are typical of a neighborhood built for the working class and migrants. In the sixties a large-scale renovation of the old buildings took place. Families with children left and entrepreneurs and students came to take their place. The Jordaan, bursting with intimate boutiques, café's and restaurants, is the ideal place to live!
Situated in the immediate vicinity are various places of interest and museums such as the Anne Frank House, the Westertoren, the Palace on Dam Square, Madame Tussauds and the trendy Westerpark with plenty of new places to eat and drink. The Jordaan itself is home to a number of old ‘hofjes', publicly accessible courtyards such as the Lindenhofje and the Looyershofje which are certainly worth a visit. On a Saturday you can combine a visit to a ‘hofje' with a stroll around the organic farmers' market or the Antiques/Brocante Market. Or wander around the famous 9 streets, picturesque shopping streets full of heritage-listed buildings. It's a trendy neighbourhood with flagship stores and branches of every luxury chain.
Amsterdam's vibrant night life is in close proximity to the boat. Around 10 minute walk ing away are the Leidseplein and the Rembrandtplein, where you'll find the bigger clubs like Jimmy Choo, The Escape and Club Air.
Amsterdam is yours to explore when you rent a bike from one of the nearby rental facilites. It's the perfect way to get around this lively city!

Reviews of this property
Had a great break of 5 nights on this boat. It was our first visit to Amsterdam and we should have equipped ourselves with a proper street map as what should have been a 10-15 minute walk from the station took us nearly.an hour - we got very lost! The boat was well equipped and in a great location - bought breakfast rolls/ croissants etc at the bakery just along from the boat. We were the perfect height for the boat (5ft 9 in) as it meant we could stand up inside and were able to jump up onto the loo. ok! We walked nearly everywhere, highlights were the Keukenhof
Gardens and the Anne Frank House. Thanks Wendy.
It's been a really nice stay and communication was perfect.
However if you're a tall person, you need to be aware that you'll have restrictions :)
Also the restroom is a nice experience.
For short trips highly recommended
Unterkunft ist für ein Kurzaufenthalt immer wieder zu empfehlen !
Kommunikation super, Lage des Schiffes ist ein Traum nur das WC ist sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig !
Wochenende war ein Traum die Stadt ein Hammer ! Wohnung bis ein Abenteuer wert.!!
wir waren über den Valentinstag auf dem romantischen kleinen Hausboot. Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Lediglich die Toilette ist etwas für, nun ja sagen wir, Hobbyakrobaten.
Ansonsten top Kommunikation und Schlüsselübergabe. Die Deckenhöhe in der Kabine beträgt circa 1.80 also nichts für große Männer ;-)
Das Schiff ist sehr klein, aber urgemütlich. Die Lage ist durch die Nähe zur Innenstadt optimal. Wendy war eine freundliche Gastgeberin, die nach einem kurzen Anruf auch schnell zur Stelle war. Wer Lust auf eine besondere Unterkunft hat und dafür bereit ist auf Platz zu verzichten, findet hier ein charmantes und absolut ungewöhnliches Zimmer. Und überhaupt: Amsterdam ist eine Reise wert!
The Boat was really really nice! The location was unreal, really close to everything, but still quiet. The Cabin itself was quaint, but lovely, the shower was surprisingly good (for a boat), and the bed was comfy. The host seemed nice, and was happy to help with anything we needed. Highlight was the boats deck in the mornings and evenings, beautiful setting to chill!
la barca è fantastica e romanticissima! il quartiere dove è ormeggiata è tranquillo e molto elegante. Si possono fare delle splendide colazioni nei caffè limitrofi e il sabato c'è il mercato vero non turistico, davvero bello. In conclusione la barca è esattamente come me la aspettavo e chi è aduso a stare su una barca non avrà che da godere della location!
We had a fantastic 5 days on our barge! Wendy our host was amazing. Thoroughly enjoyed our cosy nights, very comfortable and location is one of the best spots to enjoy the city. Highly recommend.
Sehr netter kleiner romantischer Ort um Amsterdam kennenzulernen. Alles in unmittelbarer Nähe! Jederzeit wieder!
