The private room on my houseboat is not big but comfortable for 2 people. It's central in the Jordaan but also has a feeling of freedom with a great view over the canal with boats, ducks, geese and other waterbirds passing. Please no smoking and no drugs.

The Jordaan is also nice to take walking sightseeing tours. Look at my guidebook where I give some tips.
Of course there is coffee, tea, salt and pepper and some spices and olive oil. And a bottle of wine and some beers as a welcome gesture.
Make yourself at home!
Accès des voyageurs
You have your own key, kitchenette and bathroom.
€100 refundable damage fee. Quiet after midnight, please. Internet and airco. As it is a houseboat the connection to the public sewer system works with pumps. These can easily get clogged when anything else is thrown in the toilet besides your things and toilet paper. The last bill I got was €500, that was not amusing. So please pay attention.
Smoking is absolutely not allowed. No tobacco or anything else!! I will put a claim on your damage deposit if I smell this request has been violated. Sorry. Please contact me if you miss anything or want to know something.
You are free to come and go and I will always be reachable
Hi, I love having guests over and try to make you feel like you live in Amsterdam on a special location overlooking the water.
I am 68 and do not work any more on a job, but I used to work as a public servant for the city. Living on a boat gives me a special feeling of freedom, space and view with my feet more or less in the water looking at the waterbirds and the boats passing by. I have a lovely dog, called Pommetje, a small labradoodle, born in Florida in 2009. In summer when the weather is fine I go boating through the canals which gives a different view of Amsterdam. Sometimes, walking the dog we go to the beach in IJmuiden, only 30 kms from Amsterdam. During summer I like to hire a larger boat and go boating in Friesland the lakeside part of Holland or on Canals in France.
