The boat is full of big windows so it is sunny during the day and very romantic at night with the lights and the bridge reflecting in the water.
Spacious and comfortable, it has a 60m2 recently renovated living space and it is uniquely arranged with boats details, as the romantic portholes in the bedrooms.
The apartment has a oak wooden floor with underfloor heat (the house has a double system, floor + central heating) to be dry and warm in any season.
Wi-Fi with high speed internet is available in the whole house (in the study there is a direct cable connection).
The spaces are so divided:
A white fully equipped open kitchen (oven, microwave, dish washer, Nespresso coffee machine, refrigerator, pans) where you can cook and a dining area with a massive teak dining table for six people.
A big living room where you can relax with flat TV screen and a big leather lounge sofa.
A luxurious bath with double washbasin, walk in shower and provided with towels, foams and dryer.
One main bedroom with a double bed (160x200) with an ergonomic mattress.
One extra room with a closet, a desk to study and a sofa to have private relax. The room can also be used as a single bedroom, a double or a twin bedroom.
A cozy patio garden to have some relax in the sun, enjoy a barbeque or a romantic dinner beside the canal.

Hi, I'm Giorgia, born and raised in Italy (Rome).
My passions are nature and animals, music, old movies, food (both eat and cook), travelling and people I love like family and friends.
I am a very outgoing person and I love to meet people from around the globe, that's why I'm here on Airbnb.
I own a web design company and, thanks to my work that allows me to do it wherever I want, 3 years ago I decided to move to Amsterdam to experience this amazing city.
And after 3 years I'm deeply in love with it, so that I decided to settle and buy a house.
And what kind of house is better than a houseboat?
If you love to feel free, to be in harmony with nature even in a city center, you are curious about interacting with ducks, swans and people passing by on their boats, you can't miss the wonder of staying on a houseboat.
I'll do all my best to ensure you a great and pleasant stay, I hope to see you soon, you're welcome!
