House-Boat B092 ***

This boat is located on the edge of the very popular Jordaan in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city, just a short walk from the Central Station Amsterdam. Around the corner there is the famous Noordermarket (market days are Saturday and Monday), Anne Frank House and many restaurants, cafés and pubs. This is the place to experience Amsterdam.
 
In 2012,  the owner lovingly renovated the boat that has a colourful history.  It was originally built in 1934 to be tugged around Amsterdam with deck freight. The owner christened her, after his wife, ‘Jantje’.  Jantje was known for liking a drink or two. Very quickly the people of Amsterdam named the boat the ‘blauwe’ Jantje. Blauw is not only the colour blue but also means intoxicated in street language.
 
This colourful history was the theme for the interiour of the boat, which is blue. The boat has a  well-equipped open plan kitchen,  a bathroom and a separate toilet. The spacious master bedroom has a king size bed. There is also a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed.

Our Favorite Trip
by Katie Rubak

Two friends and I stayed here for our last trip of our semester in Europe, and it could not have been better because of this houseboat! We loved having space and a place to come home - we were so sad to leave on Sunday! Jochem is one of the most accommodating and wonderful hosts, he helped us with settling in and getting around the city too. The home is charming, well furnished, and in a quaint location, and we could not have asked for a better place to stay in Amsterdam!

un super séjour
by Chrystel Breysse

un réveillon 2014 extraordinaire à bord d'une péniche cosy à souhait avec un spectacle aux premières loges pour assister aux magnifiques feux d'artifices du 31 décembre sur les canaux d'Amsterdam. Inoubliable !
Un grand merci à notre hôte pour son accueil et ses précieux conseils.
