BATEAU, studio BS87 ***
This 98 year's old houseboat is simply gorgeous! She is permanent moored in the Prinsengracht on one of the most attractive area's in the centre, the Jordaan. The location is in between the Anna Frank House and the nine little streets.
Your hostess (who lives in the middle part of the boat) offers you a bedroom with private toilet and balcony. The bedroom is cosy and you will feel safe and comfortable while you are surrounded by beautiful colours, cushions and the sound of gently flowing water. The use of the kitchen and bathroom is at fixed times (there is only one boiler on the boat). The bathroom is new and beautiful designed: it has a luxury 2-persons shower with two shower heads. The mirror is made from an old oil tank and the sink is carved out of stone on a oak table top.
Around the corner is the supermarket and they also sell prepared food. After dinner you can take place on the balcony to enjoy the nightlife on the water for a super romantic evening!
The houseboat is moored in the "Jordaan", the most pitoresque neighbourhood in our city. She lies in the middle of the famous 'nine little streets'. In the surroundings of the boat are numerous little shops, luxury clothing and shoe stores, café's, galleries, restaurants and markets. From here it's less then a 10 minute walk to the Damsquare, Madame Tussaud or the Anna Frank House. On Monday morning it's worth it to visit the Noordermarket with local biological food and in a part of the market you find secondhand vintage stuff.
