Houseboat in Heart of the city at Amsterdam canals
Houseboat in Heart of the city at Amsterdam canals
Back in town !! This boat recently has been fully renovated and has just returned from the docks and undergone major maintenance and renovation. It has been freshly painted throughout. The access has been improved by a new walkway. Outdoors has been fully replaced by a secluded terrace with new furniture. New built in fitted closets and cupboards. Kitchen has new tops and tiles and brandnew appliances. Bathroom had a complete make over.
The boat is unique for its layout and location. In the heart of the city just across the Opera and, as this boat used to be a saloon tourboat, with panoramic views of the canals and the city from the terrace and any window in kitchen, lounge and bedroom. You will have your own, fully private hideaway in the middle of the action with boats and water birds passing by all day while the culture and night life awaits at your doorstep.

The houseboat was nice and well-organised. We were 4 people and there was enough place for a long weekend.
It's located in a very central position, the underground is just a couple of minutes walking far and in just a few minutes you are in the city centre.
In the houseboat you can find evrything you need for your stay: towels, bed sheets, cups, plates and all kitchen stuff.
We didn't find the wifi mentioned in the information sheet on the wall, but that wasn't important.
Pay attention when you walk on the wood bridge that connects the house to the street:
the handrail is only on one side.
The terrace was little, but very lively if you want to chill with friend and feel the amsterdammer atmosphere.

We had a great time staying in Conny's Houseboat in amsterdam. Conny was there to meet us on time and made us feel very welcome. The houseboat is centrally located and we enjoyed walking around the city from the boat on our three day visit. Conny provided fresh bed linens and towels, and the boat was clean and equipped with a full supply of cooking and eating utensils. We did notice a bit of a musty smell, but Conny explained that she only recently acquired the boat, and has a few things she plans to fix up. We'd love to visit again! Conny couldn't have been more helpful!
