About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
This neighborhood is without a doubt one of the most authentic and original parts of the city, we are proud to say that this area does not have any tourist traps and you can truly experience great variety, food and shops among the locals.
And yet must-sees such as the Dam Square, Vondelpark, Westerpark, Anne Frank House, van Gogh and Rembrandt museums are all located within walking distance!
Meander to the oldest part of the city called the Jordaan to enjoy boutique shopping and fantastic food, or walk to the theatre district and enjoy the great nightlife around the Leidse Square.
The boat is quite large with its 15 meters length and 5 meters width!
There are 2 bedrooms. One comfortable and spacious master bedroom with a big double bed (180x210 cm).
Next to the second bedroom you will find a stylish Italian tiled bathroom with a bathtub and big rain shower in it.
The kitchen runs across the second bedroom and the bathroom. It is equipped with a professional Boretti gasstove and oven, microwave/oven, fridge, dishwasher and you will find a washing machine and a dryer. Iris loves cooking and you'll find many cookbooks and spices, pots and pans etc. The drawers are fully stocked with all you can think of in order to make a complete diner for your family.
And if you don’t feel like cooking, rest assured, you are surrounded by some of the best restaurants in town.
The livingroom is about a comfortable 25 square meters and filled with natural light through all the windows. We particularly love our natural curtains being the floating garden next to our window where you will find birdlife happily going about their business. Furthermore there is a large flatscreen with digital television, a dvd/cd player with a dolby surround sound system. The great thing of living on a boat is that you live in a free-standing water villa and you won't annoy the neighbors when playing your favorite tune!
We have of course a child-seat and we have a playpen at your disposal.
All rooms have water view and there is WiFi and cable connection.
Not that you would hopefully need it in Summer but there is floor heating all through the boat.
Also the boat has a small terrace and a little settee between the boat and the street level.
We wish to share the great experience of living in this gorgeous part of Amsterdam on this beautiful canal!

About the owner: Hi there, thanks for visiting our personal page, and hopefully we'll meet soon at our houseboat! We lived on this boat for 7 years now and really enjoyed every moment of it.

Iris is a child psychologist and Juul is an entrepreneur and fishing guide, and we both love the hospitality business. So be welcome! www.rentahouseboat.com
Why the Owner Chose Oud West (Amsterdam, Netherlands):
The Babeth is without a doubt one of the most beautiful houseboats around. The well designed boat with curved ceilings, lovely portholes and huge windows in the living room are just a few reasons why we fell in love with this boat. A few other reasons: it's very close to various supermarkets, nightshops, restaurants, bars and of course the great Jordaan area. Just have a look around and convince yourself
The Unique Benefits at this House Boat:
Perfect location close to bars, restaurants, entertainment and shops. The architecture will make you feel at home right away. And you'll never be bored in this lively part of Amsterdam. Just walk out the door and start walking in any given direction and you will be surprised about the variety of things of interest!
