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.

Great location in Amsterdam
by Heather Stephens

Really enjoyed our 4 night stay in the houseboat.
Pros: great location, very efficient central heating, comfortable beds, very hot shower
Cons: décor a bit tired, bunk bed room a tight squeeze for 2 older teenagers

Houseboat in Amsterdam
by Tanya Wilson

We stayed in Jochem's houseboat in late December 2014 and had a really lovely time. The boat is located in a great part of the city, close walking to most things and a fabulous area just to wander around - particularly at night. We felt very safe there which is great when travelling with children.
Jochem gave us a fantastic welcome with lots of information about anything we asked about. The boat has everything you need and very, very comfortable beds! Best we've had in Europe so far..on a boat...amazing. The boat was warm and all facilities easy to use.
Overall a really good experience.

Blauwe Jantje
by Paul Waite

My son and I spent five wonderful days touring Amsterdam from our blauwe houseboat home base. The location is ideal to move among the tourist areas, and the wonderful neighborhood streets, shops and cafes in Jordaan and the Nine Streets, especially.
The grocery store on the next block made a lot of staples and especially snacks much more convenient to keep on hand.
Just enough activity around the boat's mooring kept us in the Amsterdam mood, but it never was too loud or disruptive in any way.
Jochem made our visit to Amsterdam (my son's first trip to Europe)a lifetime experience to be remembered and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying at the Blauwe Jantje to any of my friends.
