Description from owner
This friendly houseboat is a complete floating apartment. There is a lounge room, open-plan kitchen, separate bedroom with double bed, and bathroom with full-length bath and shower. Perfect for 2 people, with a sofa bed for 2 more guests.
Situated on the beautiful Raamgracht, near the Nieuwmarkt, in the heart of the old centre. Everything is literally within walking distance! The Stopera, the Hermitage, Rembrandt House, shops, cafes and restaurants are in the direct neighbourhood. China Town is about five minutes walk with a huge variety of Asian restaurants and take-aways. The Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk, and the Van Gogh museum are about 1 km distance.
The Raamgracht is an attractive, quiet oasis in the heart of this busy thriving city. There is little traffic, just boats, bikes and the occasional swan that pass by. The metro station is just around the corner, making it easy to transfer from and to the airport via Central Station.

“Book Oasis houseboat - you’ll be glad you did!”
My wife & I were in Amsterdam 6/13/19 - 6/16/19. This was her 3rd trip there and my second. She has always wanted to stay on a houseboat in Amsterdam, so that was our goal this time around. After extensive research we decided to book the Oasis houseboat and we couldn’t have been more happy about our decision. The boat is clean and updated, and in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. We really felt like locals staying there. The boat is close to almost everything you would want to do or see. The Central train station is a 20min walk or 5 min Uber ride. Just about everything we wanted to do was walkable, and at the most, 15-20mins away. The boat is about 5mins from a very nice grocery store and bottle shop, which gives you the option of not having to go out for every meal. The other thing we loved about the boat was that it was private, and we didn’t have to share it with other renters. When researching other houseboats, pay close attention to the fine print. Often times what you’re renting is just a bedroom, and you’ll be sharing the common spaces with other renters and/or the owners. My wife & I are in our 40s, and well past our youth/backpackers’ hostel days, so having the Oasis all to ourselves was ideal. Jennie is a very kind and hospitable host! When we checked out, Jennie contacted me to let me know that I had left behind an article of clothing, and then she was kind enough to take the time to mail it to me. Doubtful I would have gotten that kind of treatment from a major hotel chain. I’m sure one day we’ll return to Amsterdam with our kids, and when we do we’ll be returning to the Oasis! If you’re looking to get a flavor of what it’s like to live as a local in Amsterdam, and you want to be close to all that the city has to offer, book Jennie’s boat, you’ll be glad you did!
Great location. Houseboat interior exactly as pictured - clean and good condition. Central location, yet not noisy. strongly recommend
“Quaint and Well Situated Houseboat”
We had a lovely stay on the Oasis Houseboat as a family of three adults. It was far enough away from the main hub but still easily accessible to a grocery store. The sunset over the canal and other houseboats each evening was beautiful and made for a spectacular photo. Jennie was a pleasure to rent from and was quick to fix a problem that arose on the houseboat. Would highly recommend staying there for a couple with no kids or a group of friends. Clean, quaint and had the amenities we needed.
“A perfect stay in the heart of Amsterdam”
We (4 people all around 30 years old) stayed in this lovely houseboat for 2 nights to celebrate a special new year’s eve. And we enjoyed our stay from the first second. The Owner of the boat is gentle and very obliging; all my E-Mails with questions have been answered quickly, tips for restaurants, parking, we got more than just a place to sleep. This houseboat is the perfect starting point for exploring Amsterdam, everything is nearby, Supermarkets, Shops, Restaurants, Cafes, the Dam, the Shopping area, Chinatown, Red light district, the Begijnenhof, Rijksmuseum and even the Oosterdonk Parking Garage (a perfect tip from the houseboat owner to park our car safe and cheap) is just 10 minutes’ walk form the boat. But other than expected it´s calm in this canal, 5 minutes from the Niewmarket but even in the New Year’s night you could hear some firework but no rumor of people or party. Even in the boat we have been positively surprised, the decoration is lovely, the kitchen is perfectly equipped (dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine), the bathroom big (and also with little positive surprises like a hairdryer). The visitors have been great fun each morning (swans and ducks come to the windows every day and you can feed them foot for them is prepared by the owner). Due to the security systems you feel save and with the special climate automatic it’s cozy and warm in there. The furniture are new and very practical (can be changed in bigger table and sofa into double bed), more than enough blankets and even the small things like the provided games, books, decoration changed the rental boat into a “coming home- feeling” after a long walk in Amsterdam. We will definitively come back and told all our friends of this option to explore the real Amsterdam with a more than fair rate.
