House-Boat BK142 ***

This is a lovely small studio on a houseboat with a private entrance. It consists of a room, bathroom and kitchenette and a couch in front of the boat on the street side. The atmosphere is cosy and welcoming and you have privacy.  The location is excellent, on the Korte Prinsengracht, a ten minute walk from Central Station. The owner placed a web cam on his boat, And here you see a movie of the 'Eenhoornsluis', made by Thomas Schlijper. On the right side you see the white boat (with plants on the roof).

The neighborhood is lively with café's and restaurants. The Anna Frank House, the Noordermarkt with a lot of vintage (Saturdays and Mondays) and the Jordaan with the famous nine little streets are nearby. Mooring right on the site of Amsterdam's monumental Unicorn Sluis Bridge & Lock dating back in the 15th century and on the Korte Prinsengracht, in-line with the famous Prinsengracht. Looking down the Prinsengracht you can see the tower of the Westerchurch. Also the Wednesday natural foods market on the Haarlemmerplein is a 5 minute walk.

Guests here are in for a real treat due to the fact of staying right at the heart of the culture, shopping, dining and nightlife of two most colorful and boisterous streets of Amsterdam, Haarlemmerstraat & Haarlemmerdijk, and the vibrant neighborhood of the Jordaan district.

The Asoka (someone named the boat previously after an Indian Prince) is an original Dutch house boat. It was first a wrought iron work ship launched in 1908. The house part was built into the curves of the boat in the 1930's.

After many incarnations it has evolved into this lovely place on the Korte Prinsengracht for you to enjoy. Feel the romance in your cozy little home on the canal as the city streams about you. Feel your houseboat gently sway when boats pass by.

Feel your love and lover in a totally wonderful setting encircled in the passion of Amsterdam. It is all part of the 'house boat experience' that we have here in Amsterdam. A tradition that's been quietly going on for a hundred years. And now, you have a chance to enjoy the water, to share with your partner, to entwine yourselves in the history, love, and romance of this lovely houseboat on the Korte Prinsengracht.

wonderful houseboat
by Thomas & Cornelia

We had a great stay at Teds Boat. It looks as lovely as on the pictures, authentic and charming. Ted is a wonderful host and made sure, that we have a good time. The location is perfect, it has a beautiful view on the canal and everything is in walking distance. And the best of it all is the roof terrace!
Thank you Ted, we will come back soon!

Fantastic location and wonderfull host
by Martin Simmerstatter

The trip to Amsterdam in a houseboat was a great idea. It is really different compared to a Hotel. The Boat is not the newest, but Ted cares about it and it is in charmingly good condition.
The welcome from Ted was so warming like he never did something else. The introduction to the boat very detailed.
So everything did work,we had a great time there.don't miss the view down from the roof terrace! Wonderful
Many Thanks to Ted!!!
