Boat BK18, Guestroom ***
This House-Boat is probably the most photographed boat in Amsterdam, pictures of this boat were placed in magazines over the world, from Japan to Denmark. She is moored in the middle of the Jordaan, the most pitoresque neighbourhood in our city. In the surroundings of the boat are numerous little shops, secondhand clothing stores, café's , restaurants, the Anna Frank House and markets. From here it's less then a 10 minute walk to the Damsquare.
On both ends of this barge is a guest room, your hostess lives in the middle part of the boat. On this page you can rent the BK18, the other guest room is named the BK87.
Your hostess is very artistique with a wonderful taste. All small details in the room were made by herself. The entrance is a hatch with a few steep stairs. Down stairs you find a bedroom and a kitchennette with microwave, fridge and coffee- and tea making facilities. There is also a private bathroom with shower and toilet. It's really nice to sit on the deck, you have a great view over the Prinsengracht and the Westertoren. It will give you proberly the feeling if you are a local when you see all the tourists passing by in canalboats. They will be jalous when they see you sitting on a cosy couch with a glass of wine in your hand!
