About Team Houseboat in Amsterdam
Hi, My name is Coleta and I am your hostess and captain of the houseboat barge. Together with my partner and our son, we are Team Houseboat in Amsterdam. We know Amsterdam by heart and we would love to help you find your way around town. We do not only speak English and French. but also speak some Spanish, Italian and German and we will go the extra mile to make your stay unforgettable.
Why Team Houseboat in Amsterdam chose De Pijp
We would love to welcome you on board of our houseboat and share with you our experience of a unique way of living in this beautiful part of our city. Your own private little quirky houseboat apartment on the Amstel. Just outside the crazy bubble of the city center in in a family friendly area in the hip and happening quarter De Pijp. How lovely.... Your houseboat apartment has a small deck and it's own entrance, free WIFI/WLAN, two cozy little sleep cabins with a double bed each, a bathroom, a toilet, a living room with a dining area and a small and simple pantry. Super cute isn't it?!?!? On top of this it is provided with free bed linen and as many towels as you need. Note that it is comfortable for maximum 4 guests max (3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children), operates on a self-service model, is therefore self catered and as it is an original ship it is less suitable for elderly or disabled people and it has its peculiarities ;)) If you want to party, smoke or do drugs, this is not the accommodation you are looking for. As it is located in a family friendly part of the De Pijp quarter: no loud activities, no smoking and no drugs in and around the houseboat. Would you love to know more about our houseboat apartment, please feel free to contact us any time.
What makes this House Boat unique
Waking up in the morning with the reflection of the sunlight on the surface of the water of the river Amstel, hearing the sound of the ducks and birds and watching the rowers passing by whilst drinking your morning coffee (or tea) or enjoying the sunset with a nice glass of wine from the private deck of this little quirky houseboat apartment.

Ideal place to stay for our needs. The only tiny thing was that the light at the entrance was not working and we did come across few spider webs. Oh and we never got response to our message/call when we struggled with the oven. Apart from that we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back to Amsterdam.
Thank you so much for your stay. Good to hear that you had a good time. We have checked the lamp and changed the bulb. Thank you for letting us know. Unfortunately we have not received any message regarding the oven, we would have loved to help you out on that. Sorry for having missed your message..... luckily there are many nice food shops and restaurants in the neighbourhood.....
Authentic Amsterdam Experience
Coleta was wonderful to work with, she was highly responsive and provided all of the details to make your stay seamless. The houseboat is charming, the location is a bit outside city center but centrally enough located to walk places or jump on a tram. The houseboat is very clean.
It was great having you on board of our houseboat. Thank you so much.
Super nice houseboat on the Amstel river.
Very nice houseboat close to the city center of Amsterdam. We enjoyed our stay and we can absolutely recommend this accommodation.
We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you.
Fun place to stay in Amsterdam
Very clean, cozy, and close to everything. Coleta was an amazing host, very informative and accommodating. Great view from the top of the Janna. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you so much. You were such lovely guests. It was great having you.Hope to welcome you again someday.
Darling and cozy little houseboat
We loved our stay in Amsterdam! The houseboat was perfect for us - in a quiet area but a short streetcar ride to museums, shops and restaurants (although there were several good restaurants within walking distance of the houseboat.) There were several streetcar and Metro lines a short walk away. It was a great place for us and Coleta and her family were wonderful hosts, even loaning me a cold pack after I twisted my ankle. We hope we can stay here again someday!
Excellent experience on the Amstel river, convenient and comfortable.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, with two adults and two teenage girls. The accommodation was spartan but very clean and comfortable. The location is only a couple blocks from a tram stop, with ample grocery and restaurant options nearby. We enjoyed the little coffee shop across the street from the boat for breakfast. The bedding was cozy and high quality. We made full use of the top deck for wine/cheese picnics, watching all the locals enjoy summer afternoon boating on the river. Coleta is very friendly and easy to communicate with, speaking perfect English. She was available and attentive to all our needs. We would definitely return and give her accommodation our highest rating.
Thank you for your last minute booking of the Janna. You were lovely guests and we would love to see you again on one of our houseboats.
The houseboat is located in a FAMILY FRIENDLY area on one of the best spots on the river Amstel in the Quartier Latin of Amsterdam, called De Pijp and is just a 10 to 20 minutes walk to most tourist attractions like the Rijksmuseum, the Heineken Experience, Albert Cuyp Market, the Hermitage, RAI congress centre, the old centre of Amsterdam, one of the nicest shopping area’s of Amsterdam called “Utrechtsestraat” and lots of good restaurants on the Van Woustraat.
