Two big lounge chairs are inside, so you can watch comfortably TV or relax. There is also a table with chairs. The steering house is very spacious and has a huge lounge bed with plenty (possible to sleep for one person or two children) of soft Indian pillows which gives this place it's bohemian ambiance.

It is situated on a former freight ship. It consists out of the former captains quarters and separate steer house. Your hosts are living on another boat , about 100 meters further. From 1950 this boat carried goods and cargo throughout the Netherlands & Europe. Now, it rests at one of the most beautiful and scenic rivers in Amsterdam, converted to a beautifully crafted and unique living space with lots of birds and other animals around.

How to go around:

For those who like to play in the city; shop, dine, discover night live, or do cultural stuff, we know our city well and get you on the right track! 

You can go to the center by public transport/ tram. From the boat either you walk 10 minutes or take the bicycle to go to the tram stop on ‘IJburglaan/ Diemerparklaan’. From there tram 26 will take you in 15 minutes to Amsterdam Central Station.

After midnight the tram isn’t going anymore, there is every half an hour a bus. The bus stop is on 10 minutes walking distance. It will take you a bit longer by bus than by tram.

Also you can use our bicycles for a little fee. It’s about 20-30 minutes biking to Amsterdam City center. It’s possible to hire a boat or a scooter. 
By car to Amsterdam center it’s only 10 minutes, but parking is very expensive (5 euro an hour). But we recommend you to park at P&R (Park and Ride), which is 5 minutes drive from the boat. Park your car there and pay just a small fee for the whole day, it includes your tram ticket to/from town.

Seeing the city of 1000 bridges by boat and dining on one of the canals is a fantastic experience. 
Have a Caribbean city vacation, swim in a natural pool lake, relax in the sun, go jogging in the attached park, make a BBQ or campfire. This is really one of a kind!


We are located next to the new Amsterdam IJburg area that is situated on the biggest lake of Holland (IJsselmeer). The boat is located directly at the ‘Diemerpark’, a park 8 km from the center. This park offers you great recreational possibilities as bicycling, skating, jogging or you can just wandering around in park that covers over 8 km2.
