House-Boat B068 ****
This over a 100 year old houseboat (de Medicijnman) used to be a sailing boat and was transformed into a houseboat with many characteristic old details. The boat is perfect for a romantic break, because it is located in the old centre in an oasis of tranquillity with the Zoo on the other side of the canal.
Central Station and Dam Square are on walking distance and nearby are well known museums like Scheepsvaartmuseum and Tropenmuseum, Chinatown, the Opera House and Music Hall. In less than 2 minutes walk you are at the Kadijk square, where many nice restaurants are located, such as A Tavola, one of the best Italian restaurants in Amsterdam. The Brewery ‘‘t IJ” is just around the corner.
The boat is warm and well equipped with modern facilities. The living room has panoramic windows, which let in a lot of light and give beautiful views just above water level. In the living room is a couch, which can be turned into a double bed, a big dining table and a charming open plan kitchen. The bedroom has a double bed with 4 authentic portholes. The bathroom consists of a bathtub with a shower. The sundeck enables you to enjoy spectacular views of the Entrepotdok with on one side the warehouses Amsterdam is famous for and on the other side boats passing by in the presence of various types of water birds. The strategic position of the boat ensures you will be able to enjoy sun from the early morning until the late evening thereby catering for a sunny breakfast and a spectacular sunset!
