About the owner: As both owner of the houseboat and your host, my dearest wish is for you to enjoy your stay and feel at home in your houseboat. I love travelling, but know how difficult is it to find an ideal holiday home. I shall do everything I can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. You can count on your host.
Why the Owner Chose Binnenstad, Amsterdam, Netherlands:
To live in a houseboat in the 'Old Center' of Amsterdam but in the residential part : 'East side'. To live on a canal which was peaceful and green unlike the more touristy waterways, which are too noisy and prone to all sorts of traffic (cars, buses/boats traffic). It is the Raamgracht canal : No traffic with narrow/oneway street and canal, with lush greenery shading over all the boats. The hull (Praam type) and boat were built during 'La Belle Epoque' in 1898 which makes one of oldest boats of Amsterdam. The last complete renovation was in 2010 to the best standards but respecting its historic charm. A praam is a type of shallow-draught flat-bottomed ship, was particularly developed in the Netherlands in the 17th Century, reaching about 20 m in length. These large praams could be operated with oars but also to sail, with a pair of lateral fins. Their shallow draft (no more than two feet) allowed them to move goods (unshipped from the Harbour) in all canals of Amsterdam. Why Live In A houseboat ? : I understood that a flat is too noisy, as the walls are too thin with buildings on pilotis in Amsterdam. A barge is too steep-sided.
The Unique Benefits at this House Boat:
You are tucked away on your own island in the middle of town. There is a certain spirit of the people who live there. The cozy 'style boudoir à la française' and 'décor bohème' reflect the love of travel and freedom - and the passion for discovery and fun, which is the houseboat lifestyle. Your houseboat is rich colors and eclectic decor reflect this love of life, which makes one feel free and ready to explore the world. Only renting the houseboat when I’m in the countryside, a 'polder', which is very closeby. You can count on me if you need my support before, during, or after your stay. Your houseboat is not merely an impersonal and soulless rental property, as I prefer to welcome my friends and guests in a friendly spirit rather than dealing with business customers.
