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.

A Wonderful Stay
by Andrea

Our family of 4 (with my husband with our adult daughter and her boyfriend), stayed on Mr. Bakker houseboat October7-11, 2015. The boat itself is exactly as shown in the pictures. In the neighborhood of Jordaan, we arrived at Central Station, and it was a 10 minute walk...suddenly away from the hustle and bustle of the downtown area, truly a quiet home away from home to end our days of sightseeing. A pub is across the road (literally steps), grocery a short walk, and Mr. Bakker supplies everything needed for your stay! He spent a significant amount of time with us, giving the directions we needed, recommendations for meals, as well as the ins and outs of the boat. The deck is small but sufficient (as we enjoy coffee and a cigarette in the morning). I could not imagine another way to visit Amsterdam then staying on Mr. Bakker's boat! The location is within walking distance to all the major sites, the trams are very easy to use. Do not and enjoy!

Great stay

If your wondering weather to stay in hotel or house boat. House boat wins has down especially if it's owned by Jochim as he was not rushed when meeting us and one of the most honest guys you will meet.
Thanks Polidano family.
