Amazing modern houseboat great view

This stunning houseboat offers the unique Amsterdam experience. Located on the lower Amstel, the river that gave Amsterdam her name. Built late 2014.

Sunny, well located safe and quiet neighborhood next to canal center, the Pijp and hip East. Easy access to visit other cities due to proximity to train station. Or jump into the Amstel for a swim! Maximum privacy as the whole house & outside are yours exclusively - we will not be there when you are.


Built late 2014 this stunning houseboat (135m2) will offer an experience you will not easily forget. Located uniquely on the Amstel, the river that gave Amsterdam her name.

The boat is our house, so we only rent it out when traveling. We share the boat with my partners kids and Pablo, our cat. If you are hugely allergic, this might be a problem. Of course we keep the house very tidy and clean. Pablo can stay, and he can go, really up to you. Of course Pablo is awesome (a big red maine coon rescue cat). For couple or family with 2 kids - who sleep in a bunk bed in their own room (additional costs after 2 occupants).

The ground floor
is comprised of a modern kitchen which is fully equipped (dishwasher, oven, microwave, fridge, stove with 4 burners, wash machine, water cooker (part of the tap), coffee machine and blender) and has all the needs for a comfortable stay in the city. There is a big dining table in the open kitchen where you can enjoy breakfast/dinner with an amazing view on the canal. The view never bores; day or night, come sun or rain.

The big dining table is part of the sitting room with a cosy 'see through' gas fire place and a large sofa bed couch (2 grown ups), sliding doors to the outdoor terrace. At the entrance you will find a separate toilet. 4 big windows shed an abundance of light in to the space - which can be prevented by curtains if so desired. And of course makes it possible to enjoy the view. Its spacious but not overwhelmingly large (about 50m2); sun deck/terrace excluded.

One level down (yes, half under water) one will find a large state of the art bathroom - with a second toilet, bath, rain shower etc., a laundry room (may be used; washer and dryer), 2 spacious bedrooms (one is the guestroom that we rent out), and 2 smaller rooms - one with a bunk bed and one currently used for storage.

The bed in the guestroom is 180 by 200 cm (king seize - 2 separate mattresses but cannot be divided into 2 beds). You may opt for 2 separate duvet's or choose one romantic big one.
If you are with two friends and you would rather not share a bed, then you can use the upstairs sofa couch. Bedding is available, just ask in advance.

Heating is provided through floor heating throughout the house and if you want to add a pinch; use the gas fireplace.
Just to be clear; (hot) water, gas and electricity are available as if it were a normal house. Also available is wifi through out the house, a sonos hifi system and TV set.

In total the living space ex terrace is about 120 m2 - but looks a lot smaller from the outside.

Don't worry about motion sickness, the boat might move somewhat due to wind or waves at times but only ever so slightly. 98% of the time you will not notice the house moving at all.

Note that our bedroom is not rented out. Can be discussed, but a subsequent charge will be added.

Own entrance by gang board - through front door.

As we only rent out the space when traveling (mostly for business), the chance we will meet in person is small. However, my neighbors are very helpful as other potential key holders you might encounter (cleaning lady Ceca).
I respond quickly to emails - basically, I'm always online if not sleeping.

As we do live there, its inevitable that you will find traces of our lives in the boat - although we try to keep that to a bare minimum.

Within walking distance you can find an abundance of nice local restaurants from (very) posh, to trendy, small & local, or business type venues. Notably, the best vegetarian restaurant in town (Betty's) is a 5 min walk away. I will provide you with an Amsterdam restaurant guide, initially started within my company to help expats navigate the good and the bad in Amsterdam.

Supermarkets and other shops are also 5 min walk away, all can be found on the Rijnstraat (Albert Heijn being our most well known).

Very conveniently located!

Train & Metro
Its a seven minute walk to Amstel train station (train and metro) from where you can travel to central station Amsterdam (10 min), Schiphol (25 min) or Utrecht and beyond (25 min).

Note that the 'Rivierenbuurt' - as my neighborhood is called - is still considered to belong the inner area of Amsterdam. Close to the trendy 'Oost' (East) and the 'De Pijp' area. The canal ring ('Jordaan' or 'Centrum') is about 10 to 15 min by public transport.

The sounds from the street are hard to hear inside (very isolated), if you open the windows there will be some noise during rush-hours. The bedroom downstairs is quiet. Other than that, you might hear duck like sounds, or rowing boats.

Clean and fresh bed linen will waiting upon arrival

Guests are most welcome to use appliances to cook and ingredients like salt, peper, oil, butter etc.

Any cost of damage or theft between arrival and departure will immediately be recovered

The boat has its own front door and guests are welcome to the living room, kitchen, both bathrooms and their guest room. Of course also to enjoy the outdoor area as much as possible too.

As its our own house most likely we will be traveling when guests are staying in the houseboat. However, always reachable by phone and with friendly neighbors who can help out if needed.


只有卫生纸在厕所里 - 不能够紧张 - (没有湿润的棉塞,因为它们会使泵失效)当船在泵上运行以便浪费污水时,泵不必混乱。
translated by Google

only toilet paper in the toilet - cannot be stressed enough - (no wet-ties, tampons as they will deactivate the pump) As the boat runs on the pump to get waste to the sewage its imperative the pump does not clutter.

Treat my house as you would do your own, and I'll be a happy camper. The place is new, that's why I'm only looking to rent to couples (in every formation!), 2 friends, business visitors, or families with children above 8.

* Non smoking please, but there is a good outside terrace where you can enjoy your cigarette.
* IMPORTANT: the sewerage system is different on a boat. Please do not throw too much toilet paper inside the toilet or any other things than normal paper. Please Please DON'T EVER DISPOSE OF SANITARY TOWELS or other cotton-based hygienic wipes in our toilets. This will cause the sewage-pump to fail, with very serious consequences indeed. Please also notify other guests / children etc about this very important issue. You can put these items in the hygienic-bin beside the toilet.
* Don't take any of the inside furniture outside. I have special furniture for outside and please only use these.
* Close all the windows when you leave the house and be sure to lock the front door properly.
* Sorry, no dogs (very small ones can be discussed - I do actually like them).

AMAZING home. Best view you could ask for and conveniently located to grab the metro or walk into a few great neighborhoods, including the city center. Nynke and Roderick were amazing hosts who greeted us on arrival and made sure we felt totally welcome and settled. Would absolutely recommend this home to anyone visiting Amsterdam!

This beautiful houseboat was very comfortable and clean. This was the last segment of our European adventure and it was exactly what was needed. The location and the home itself is quite modern. The view from the dining room and the decks are stunning! I especially loved taking showers in the spacious bathroom. Just all around very pleasant accommodations. We looked after the cat who lives there and he really added to the experience. Nynke and Roderick were very kind and thoughtful hosts and communicated with us appropriately. We would stay again in the future.

My husband and I were so excited to be staying on a houseboat for the first time, and this property exceeded our expectations. Less than 15 minutes from the airport, and we were able to walk to so many places, not to mention that the views of the canal are magical and sitting out on the porch and watch the passing boats was incredibly enjoyable. Nynke was a pleasure to communicate with - quick to respond and incredibly accommodating. There was no AC and so it could get a bit hot, but that was easily solved by opening the 2 doors on the main floor to allow the breeze to flow. The downstairs is much cooler naturally so sleeping was delightful. The house manual was incredibly clear/concise, and best of all, a long and detailed list of restaurants was left for us so we could avoid 'tourist traps'. Much appreciated. The entire place felt super spacious too. Left us looking for an excuse to move to Amsterdam and into a houseboat.

Loved it! Nynke has an amazing place on The Amstel - great locale with picturesque views. Nynke was very helpful with trip planning and great tips in and around the city and country! I'll be back!

Thank you Jacoba, with pleasure. Enjoy the rest of your time in NL!

WOW, what an amazing experience it was to stay on Nynke's houseboat! Her home is just as beautiful as the pictures show but the view is even better! Nynke & Roderick were great host as well. From the day we booked, we got quick answers to questions about planning our trip and local things to do (wonderful restaurant guide-Lion Nior was our favorite!) and she was always available if we needed. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay that isn't in the middle of the bustle of the city-but is still central enough-this houseboat is for you. The fact that it's gorgeous inside and out doesn't hurt either. We would love to stay here again!

It was a pleasure to host you. You made airbnb look good - great guests. Have a good trip back home!

We had the most amazing time in Amsterdam and it was made that much better by our lovely accommodations! Nynke was the perfect host and we had everything we needed at our finger tips including tips for food and sight seeing. We felt right at home in the modern and amazing house boat! Next time we find ourselves in Amsterdam, we will definitely look to book this house boat.

Dutch national but grew up abroad. I like to think I'm open minded, enjoy wining and dining and the great outdoors. Cultural minded, friendly, well traveled, and 45 years old by now, and female (as the name Nynke might not give away my gender ;) We live on the houseboat and only rent it out when traveling for work or pleasure.
