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 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 Emmanuel Saliot

Nous avons passé en famille un superbe séjour grâce à cette péniche très agréable et très bien située.
L'accueil de Paul est chaleureux et simple, nous avons très vite pris possession des lieux, qui sont très bien adaptés pour une famille.
Les lieux étaient très propres et très fonctionnels, le jacuzzi a bien sûr beaucoup plu aux enfants.Les fauteuils très confortables permettent de profiter de la vue sur l'Amstel ou se remettre des marches le long des canaux.
Merci à vous pour cette très belle parenthèse amsterdamoise.

Wir waren vom 20.10. - 25.10. Gäste auf dem Hausboot und haben uns sofort wohlgefühlt. Das Boot ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet und die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich. Die Lage ist perfekt für Stadturlauber, alles ist gut zu Fuß zu erreichen, Straßenbahn und U-Bahn sind auch nicht weit. Wir haben den Aufenthalt genossen, obwohl es die meisten Tage geregnet hat;einen Abend gab es sogar ein Gewitter mit Hagel, eine spezielle Erfahrung auf dem Hausboot! Die Schwäne haben uns abends auch besucht. Ein spezieller Moment war, wenn die Magere Brücke aufging, um große Boote durchzulassen. Wir haben Amsterdam sehr genossen und würden jederzeit wieder so ein Hausboot mieten! Familie Hoffmann aus Bremen
