Our houseboat is an authentic houseboat, located very close to the city centre of Amsterdam. From our home you will have an amazing view over the water, you will be very close to the canals and the hotspots of the Jordaan but at the same time very relaxed and quiet.
This 28 meter houseboat is fully renovated and has some key features: an amazing view over the water, a large living area with open kitchen (including Quooker!), a 5* bed (extra-long) which can be electronically adjusted to your own preferences, a bathroom including bathtub with view over the water or shower while watching the stars. The boat is fully equipped, extremely comfortable, and a unique experience to live at least once in your life!
In the morning, the sun will shine through the characteristic round windows. The sun will dance on the ceiling when you are slowly waking up. Swans and other birds will pass by to say Hi! Make a cup of thee or coffee or enjoy your breakfast on the deck terrace. You will be surprised by the fantastic view, neighbours and beautiful environment.
In the evening, you will be surprised by the amazing sunset, reflecting on the water and the Silodam. Take an evening shower or bath while looking at the stars or the shimmering light on the water.
The houseboat is moored in a historical area with other unique houseboats inhabited by unique people. We all share the same vision: we love to live on the water and are respectful to nature. We are humble and help each other whenever help is needed.
Please do not book our houseboat when you are not interested in or respectful to our way of life.

The houseboat is over a 100 years old, and in the far past, it was used to transport sand and other raw materials from one place to another within Europe. For many years its main function is to provide a home to people that love to live on the water. In 2012, it has been purposely rebuilt to provide comfort, privacy and a light-filled living which is unique for a houseboat as such. Surprisingly, the outside does not reveal any of this.
We rent our home when we are away. In order for you to have a fantastic stay we work with a professional hosting agency called Host je Huisje to welcome you into our home, answer all your questions and remain at your disposal in case you need help. Dont hesitate to contact them during your stay. You can, off course, also always write us through Airbnb.
Hi! Welcome on our page! We are in love with our home and would like to share it with you when we are away for business or holiday.
Sjoerd is an entrepreneur and Cindy is working in Finance.
For us, the houseboat is one big adventure! We jumped into it and we are 99% finished on how we would like to have it. However, as some of you boat lovers will know, a boat is never finished! You will always need to upgrade something or when you are less fortunate, repair something.
BUT 99% of our stay at home we feel like we are on holiday! For example when:
- we shower in bright sunlight or underneath the stars!
- we feed the swans from our own dining table
- we enjoy our privacy with no one being able to watch you
- we are treated with the brightest sunrise or a colorful sunset!
- we snuggle into our very very comfortable extra large box spring
- when we jump into the water from our own boat!
- shall I go on? :)
Please share our love for water & respect our way of living: being humble and respectful towards nature and the people around you. And we welcome you to our HIDDEN GEM in Amsterdam!
Any questions? We are happy to answer you!
See you soon?
Cindy & Sjoerd
