Description from owner

Description

This cosy boat "LOVE AND LIGHT" is ideal for a couple looking for a special romantic getaway in Amsterdam. But is also possible to change the comfortable couch into another double bed, perhaps for your children or for friends traveling who prefer to sleep separate.

Entering this boat you find yourself in the kitchen area overlooking the historic canals of Amsterdam. Cooking the perfect pasta can be done in this fully equipped kitchen watching the swans swim by. In the middle of the boat you find a dining table, comfortable couch, music stereo and Kingsize bed.

Behind the bed is a large bath tub with shower build in the floor and a separate toilet. This boat comes with WIFI, a Flatscreen TV with DVD player, HBO movie channels, dishwashmachine, fresh towels and bed linnen.

It all makes you never want to go home again.
