ABOUT MY SPACE
Do Amsterdam the authentic way; in a traditional houseboat! It's situated right at the Northern Market (famous for it's Saturday food market) in the Jordaan area, where all the vintage boutiques and good restaurants are situated. You'll feel like 'the yuppie king of Amsterdam [that's what my mother calls me...].
DINING AT A SWORD
The houseboat is a studio apartment which was very recently fully refurbished and equipped with a new killer kitchen. This boat is the perfect place to invite your guests to; and have them sit at the huge dining table made of an old boats sword. But you could also dine on top on the roof terrace off course:-0
TAKE A BIKE, STRANGER!
You'll a be 4 minute walk from Anne Frank's house and just 5 from Amsterdam Central Station. Amsterdam is not very big, so you'll get to about everywhere (like the Van Gogh Museum and the Hermitage) within 15 minutes on your super cool rental bike.
Please note there is some slightly explicit - but fairly cool - art on the walls, and people on boats coming by the big window on the canal will love you for it (please wave back!)...
THE LOCAL THING
Like any city, to enjoy Amsterdam the best way, you need a local connection. I like to be a good host - so if you want to i can get you all the info you need on what’s hot and what’s not. Just contact me and tell me what you like!
START A FIRE
Did i mention the 2 fireplaces (one in-, one outside)? Just promise me to not light the rest of the place up;-)
