My name is Chris, Captain of the Friendship. I like to welcome you at my houseboat and give you a proper Dutch experience while staying in Amsterdam. I have been very busy as a tour guide for many years,so can tell you many stories if you like.
The houseboat is situated in the centre of Amsterdam on the famous canal called the Single. Staying in this houseboat is ideal for adventurous friends or a small group of backpackers, who doesn’t expect luxury or space. It is a really old dutch houseboat, but all basic needs you find here for a real Amsterdam experience at a low price.
First: The location is very special. It’s in the very centre of Amsterdam and because Amsterdam is sinking but the boat is still floating, the quay is recently damaged but reinforced with pillars that’s why you have a free little sand beach in front of the boat now.
Second: You have a fantastic view from the boat on the romantic canal with its small bridges and warehouses.
Thirdly: Girls of easy virtue, sitting in opposite of the street, are watching over the houseboat till late in the evening.
The houseboat is suitable for a maximum of 4 guests and consists out of four small areas. The main entrance leads you by a small stair (watch out) to a colourful decorated room where you can find two bunk beds. These two bunk beds provide sleeping accommodation for four guests who doesn’t bother and annoy each other. This area also contains a gas heater and a small corner with a desk and a computer.
On the right hand of the entrance you will find the kitchen with everything you need to make your crew a nice meal. Also, it contains a washing machine and dryer.
In the narrow basic bathroom you will find a toilet and shower. The kitchen, toilet and bathroom are shared with the captain.The captains quarters is situated on the right side of the boat.
Outside you can find a small terrace with chairs and a fabulous view over the canal.
Note: Unfortunately the soccer table is no longer with us, but I provide endless stories about this when you arrive.
