House-Boat B084 *****

Without any doubt this is the best location in Amsterdam for a houseboat: in the heart of the city on the sunny side of the Amstel River next to the ‘Skinny Bridge’ and the Royal theater Carré. The 'Skinny Bridge Boat' has completely been refurnished in 2012 giving guests the best facilities possible while keeping the authentic characteristics of the boat. Pure Vintage! Make yourself a coffee from fresh beans, relax on the Italian design couch, feel well rested after a night on the Eastborn boxspring, but most of all enjoy the fantastic view this place in Amsterdam offers. On several places you can sit outside on the deck, enjoy breakfast and the view on the lively Amstel. And since the best way to discover Amsterdam is from the waterside: just take the motorboat that is moored near the houseboat (max. 6 persons) for a spin in the city and enjoy your own private canal cruise anytime you like (motorboat available from May till October). 

This houseboat is very spacious with two bedrooms, two bathrooms (1 large one with both a bath and a shower) two toilets and a large living room with sleeping couch. It is accessible by a private bridge. A small staircase brings you into the boat, a small hallway and then the large living room with open plan kitchen. The modern kitchen is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay: fridge, stove, microwave/oven, toaster, juice maker, water cooker, coffee machine etc. There is a bar table in front of the kitchen for the quick breakfast, a dining table and a comfortable sitting area. The couch can be easily transformed into a queen size quality bed. There is a large flatscreen television with movies on demand, wifi internet connection and radio/cd-player. Most of all guests appreciate the cozy atmosphere this boat has.

One of the bedrooms is located in the ol' captains den making it a very charming room. Walking outside over the gangway you reach this romantic suite. After having taken a bath in the classical bathtub you can go upstairs for a great view (with a cup of coffee or tea) from the place where the captain used to steer the boat. 

The 'Skinny Bridge Boat' is the answer to an exclusive stay in Amsterdam. Even though it is situated in the heart of the city were the river is lively during the day, the nights are very quite. Only on a few occasions there are exceptions: on Queensday, during the Gay Parade (which passes in front of the boat) and when on May 5th, a part of the Amstel River changes into a podium for the Queen and visitors for an open air concert: Be quick if you want a free ticket on the first row!

It is always rented out to one group of persons at a time (max. 6 persons) ensuring your privacy during your stay. Reviews!

Fantastic Stay
by Nivedita Goel

We had a fantastic stay at Paul's Boathouse No 84. He was very helpful and was always available on the phone. The houseboat is fully equipped with every day necessities (including lots of plug points).. We were two couple and another friend. It is even better than the description mentioned online. Lots of sunlight inside the houseboat and the upper deck is a great place to relax. The only problem was that there were some spiders lurking here and there but i guess on a wooden houseboat there are bound to be some.We had a great time exploring Amsterdam in the motorboat that came along with the house boat. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family and hope to stay here on our next trip to Amsterdam.

House Boat 84 rocks!
by janet spencer

Staying on this boat was a major highlight of our trip in late April (tulip time) with my daughter and three grandsons, 12, 9 and 7. The owner Paul was wonderfully helpful at every turn, including finding us a place to flop for a few hours after an all night flight and before we could check in. The older boys stayed in the second bedroom (with bath) which was fabulous for them but might not be for everyone as it is at the rear of the boat and accessible from the outside via a narrow walkway--but charming and fun for the young-uns. Beds are super comfortable, including sofa bed in living room. Boat completely equipped, including having numerous electrical outlets and tons of hot water. Fabulous location, too, with gorgeous view of the skinny bridge, near public transport and restaurants. JS
