House-Boat B084 *****

Without any doubt this is the best location in Amsterdam for a houseboat: in the heart of the city on the sunny side of the Amstel River next to the ‘Skinny Bridge’ and the Royal theater Carré. The 'Skinny Bridge Boat' has completely been refurnished in 2012 giving guests the best facilities possible while keeping the authentic characteristics of the boat. Pure Vintage! Make yourself a coffee from fresh beans, relax on the Italian design couch, feel well rested after a night on the Eastborn boxspring, but most of all enjoy the fantastic view this place in Amsterdam offers. On several places you can sit outside on the deck, enjoy breakfast and the view on the lively Amstel.  

This houseboat is very spacious with two bedrooms, two bathrooms (1 large one with both a bath and a shower) two toilets and a large living room with sleeping couch. It is accessible by a private bridge. A small staircase brings you into the boat, a small hallway and then the large living room with open plan kitchen. The modern kitchen is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay: fridge, stove, microwave/oven, toaster, juice maker, water cooker, coffee machine etc. There is a bar table in front of the kitchen for the quick breakfast, a dining table and a comfortable sitting area. The couch can be easily transformed into a queen size quality bed. There is a large flatscreen television with movies on demand, wifi internet connection and radio/cd-player. Most of all guests appreciate the cozy atmosphere this boat has.

One of the bedrooms is located in the ol' captains den making it a very charming room. Walking outside over the gangway you reach this romantic suite. After having taken a bath in the classical bathtub you can go upstairs for a great view (with a cup of coffee or tea) from the place where the captain used to steer the boat. 

The 'Skinny Bridge Boat' is the answer to an exclusive stay in Amsterdam. Even though it is situated in the heart of the city were the river is lively during the day, the nights are very quite. Only on a few occasions there are exceptions: on Queensday, during the Gay Parade (which passes in front of the boat) and when on May 5th, a part of the Amstel River changes into a podium for the Queen and visitors for an open air concert: Be quick if you want a free ticket on the first row!

It is always rented out to one group of persons at a time (max. 6 persons) ensuring your privacy during your stay. Reviews!

Review Boat B084
by Holger Will

It´s a great boat and the position is awesam.
With younger children it is important to know that the capitan cabin is totally separated from the main bed- and living room. You have to leave this area, walk across the boat and enter your cabin (different entrances and doors!). We guess it´s gonna be very hot in summer times. Next time we`ll ask to regulate the heating. We had kind of a oven in the bedroom (not in the capitans cabin). A few things are to repair. The owner was very kind and helpful. Thanks, one day we`ll come back!

vier schöne Tage in Amsterdam
by Dagmar Amm

Zum perfekten "Amsterdam-Gefühl" hat unser Quartier - Hausboot B084 - viel beigetragen. Mit fünf Personen waren wir darauf prima untergebracht, der Vermieter war sehr nett, die Lage ideal, die Ausstattung praktisch. Die "Magere Brug" als Aussichtsmotiv von Deck und die Nähe zum Stadtzentrum haben wir sehr genossen. Vielen Dank dafür !!!
