Casa Flutuante B132 ***
This romatic houseboat for two is located in the heart of the historic centre of Amsterdam. She is right next to restaurant Vlaming there is a cafe on the corner and the famous pancake bakery is just across.
Grietje is ideal for a romantic getaway for 2. This cosy houseboat is for your own private use. The boat is situated almost next to the Anne Frank house, and really close to Amsterdam highlights like the Dam square. Also the famous museum quarter with the Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk museum and Van Gogh museum is only fifteen minutes away by bike. Just a few minutes by foot you can drink a great cup of coffee, get your groceries at the fresh food market or supermarket or drink a dutch beer in an 'gezellig' brown cafe.
Besides you are just ten minutes away from the central station where you can catch the train, tram or metro. All in all a unique place in the historic hart of Amsterdam on the world famous canals. What stands out when you enter the boat is the big bathtub which is situated in the centre of the cozy cabin. And of course there is the Wheelhouse with windows all around overlooking the canal. The wheelhouse is the perfect place for breakfast and romantic evenings. If it's a sunny day it's also definitely worth sitting on the large deck to watch all boats pass by.
Downstairs you find a one room with a double bed, the bathtub, toilet, fully equipped kitchen with oven, fridge and coffee machine and even a small washing machine. And another unique thing: the engine of 'Grietje' is still running so she can sail around the canals, with a captain! (enquire for rates). Grietje is a real floating apartment with the charms of a boat. That does mean that sometimes you are rocking in your bed when a ship passes, or you take a shower in the bath. But hey: you are at a real boat!
