Welcome aboard of the Tante Piet

Houseboat | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Key Info
  • Suitable for children over 5
  • No pets allowed
  • Private garden
  • Car not necessary

Just off the beaten track, one mile from the main train station, this houseboat provides everything you need for a relaxing but yet different holiday.

It is relaxed and cosy, you will experience a great feeling of freedom on board.

You share it with the lady owner, she is super relaxed!. Of course you will receive a key and you can come and go as you like, early morning or deep at night. The living room, kitchen and shower are there for you to use.

Please note: bookings made before 7 of April 2014 remain the same as how the booking was made, meaning exclusively rent.

The double bed is super comfortable, in the guestroom is a washing basin and a separate toilet. The second double bed is located in the living room.

The garden is there to enjoy breakfast, a drink or even a campfire.

After a day strolling through the busy center, 15 minutes by foot, it is wonderful to come home and relax in the garden. Specially because the sun is there from morning to evening.

A secret joke is to greet all passersby as if you live on the ship for years:-)

In wintertime you can enjoy, the wood burning stove, snuggled up on the couch.

My main goal is to make sure you have a fantastic time, and I will be very pleased to help or guide you in any way I can.

Upon your arrival l will be on board to welcome you and make you feel at home.

Your booking includes:

-bed linen and towels

-coffee and tea making facilities

-complete kitchen



-city guide map

Public transport is just around the corner.

Breakfast Possibilities:

If you like me to provide breakfast, please let me know. For an additional fee of € 7.50 p.p.p.d. all the supplies will be placed in the refrigerator or I bake you myself nice Dutch-style eggs.

For all of your cat lovers, meet Boobie, she is very affectionate. She is an out-door cat, (read big hunter), there is no litter box on board.

Local Area:

A lovely walk away you will be in the famous Jordaan area. Full of unique vintage shops, cafe's and neighborhood markets.

Your stay on this houseboat gives you the best experience! Live among Amsterdam residence in a village like city street but yet you are quickly in the busy bubbling hart of the center.

Wow what a guy! Marcus stayed with 3 girl friends for 3 nights. They where all so cheer full and easy going. Marcus is very thoughtful and polite but yet very relaxed and full of humor. We all shared breakfast on their last morning which was a very nice get together. They left the boat spotless. Hopefully we will meet again, for sure they are all very welcome!
