House-Boat B045 ****

 William J. Kole wrote a nice article in this boat for ABC News. This spacious-living vessel enjoys no doubt the most stunning spot on the whole Amstel River as it docks right at the foot of Amsterdam's famous icon, the Skinny Bridge, and within reach to nearby historical & cultural landmarks such as Royal Carré Theater, Hermitage Museum, Jewish Museum, 17th century Synagogue, Rembrandt House, Opera House etc.

Just one block from the boat's front door is Amsterdam's most quaint yet bustling high street, Utrechtsestraat, offering a great number of unique, eye-catching stores from lifestyle, interior design, fashion, gifts, gourmet food, music to literature & overwhelming guests with authentic cafes, trendy bars & a global flair of cuisines/restaurants.

Superbly transformed from a former freighter into a modern & high standard living space, this vessel can accommodate up to 6 persons. There are original features & elegantly reserved such as iron beams, portholes & steering wheel.

The former captain deck features the original steering wheel & now serves as the boat's entrance. Turning left is a small staircase leading down to a fully equipped kitchen. Here guests can find any modern cooking/kitchen wares to prepare any meals of the day. Next is the grand open-plan dining/living room area & brighten up by natural daylight thanks numerous sunroofs, windows & portholes. The living room features a large-comfortable sofa & two armchairs for guests to relax & enjoy various home entertainment systems: large LCD-TV, Hi-Fi system, CD/DVD player, i-Docking, free Wi-Fi while marveling the Amstel River's spectacular view. Nearby is a cozy dinning area where a dinning table is provided with six chairs for guests gathering with family or friends for meals.

There are three sleeping areas. The main bedroom features a double bed & TV & has a direct view of the Skinny Bridge. Opposite the main bedroom is an amble wardrobe space for guests' belongings. The second sleeping area is an open-plan & has two single beds, here the Skinny Bridge is also in full view. The third bedroom is located in the kitchen area & has a double cupboard bed.

The spacious bathroom is located after the main bedroom & it features a modern shower unit, WC, a large marble face-basin & a state of the art Jacuzzi bathtub for guests to relax & indulge any hydrotherapy session. For outdoor enjoyment of the Amstel River's dazzling view there is a seating area provided on the boat’s upper deck. Reviews

Très bon séjour
by Yves Archaud

Nous sommes restés 3 nuits sur la péniche. Tout était nikel. Iwris est très sympathique et nous a indiqué tout ce qu'il y avait à savoir.
La péniche est grande et lumineuse et c'est vraiment un plaisir d'ouvrir un hublot et d'être à 60 cms au dessus de l'Amstel.
Elle est idéalement située et toutes nos sorties se sont faites à pieds.
A recommander sans soucis. Seul regret, le temps est passé trop vite...

Great boat in brilliant location
by Rhian Brouard

Totally agree with all the other reviews on here. Boat is as it looks in pictures, just got back yesterday and was very warm and cosy despite the cold outside.
Perfect location, really central and very easy to find again as it is right next to Skinny Bridge.
Everything you need on board including all cutlery and plenty of towels and bedding.
Many thanks to Iwris - she was so welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.
Only one small complaint - one of the bedrooms had no heater so was fairly cold. It might be because of the recent storm but there was also drips of water coming through the windows.
We were a group of 6 girls and found there not to be enough mirrors so suggest taking your own small mirror if you can.

great houseboat at a great place in Amsterdam
by Inga von der Linden

We stayed with 4 people (one Dutch, one Australian and two Germans, with American Guests) for 3 Nights on the Houseboat. We had a great time. Outside it was cold and rainy and insight warm and cosy.
It has enough space, the kitchen has everything you need, we just didn´t have the time to use it for more than breakfast. The very nice owner was there to greet us and show everything. Fresh flowers on the table !! :-)
We will definitely come back next year! Thanks formaking us feeling like home!
(One thing to consider, if you come in the wintertime, is to bring some kind of houseshoes because the bathroom floor is quite cold!)
