We know how important it is to add a little personal touch to a cruise through Amsterdam. The same counts for the place where you decide to stay during your holiday in Amsterdam. We can’t think of a better place to stay than a houseboat, owned and rented out by the owners who love to share their way of living with you!
Just picture yourself staying on one of the many floating homes that Amsterdam has to offer – we promise it will be an unforgettable experience. And you can trust us on this, because we live on a houseboat ourselves!
From traditional freight ships to modern barges
Have a look at one of the great Amsterdam houseboat rentals that you can choose from, amongst which our own lovely floating home. On BookaHouseboat you will find both traditional ships and modern barges. Imagine yourself staying at a former freight ship, over 100 years old, watching over the water through the portholes. This is quite something else than a regular hotel room, we can assure you that! Or what about a modern barge with all the amenities of a high-end apartment? Sit back and relax while swans swim by and the reflections of the water surface dance on the ceiling. An experience that you will remember the rest of your life!
Houseboats have a soul
Every single houseboat has lots of character, or should we even say a soul maybe? The owners really put their heart in the design and interior of their floating homes, resulting in the most unique places to stay. Most houseboats are located in the city centre, close to all major attractions of the city. However, we can assure you that there are also fantastic floating homes just outside the Amsterdam Canal District. The Eastern Docks for example offer various houseboats and houseboat apartments with wide views over the large former harbours for the massive steam ships that docked here in the late 19th and early 20th century.
The houseboats in Amsterdam accommodate up to 4 persons. You can choose from either whole boats that are all yours to use, or so called houseboat apartments: single rooms on a boat or ship. No matter what kind of floating home you choose for your next holiday, you will be surprised about the amazing experience a houseboat holiday has to offer!
