Explore an artsy, colorful, three-bedroom houseboat full of enchanting details

Berthed in Amsterdam, this boat may look like an ordinary floating, two-story home from the outside, but inside, it's simply breathtaking. A mix of contemporary and retro art, along with unexpected color combinations and sweeping, sun-filled rooms make this more than just a houseboat-it's a work of art.
A showcase of creativity, whimsy, and downright coolness, this fun floating home has plenty of room for six guests, and a deck and dining room that practically beg for dinner parties and late night seaside conversations. Walking into the home, you'll immediately notice the bright, bold details of the space, like the orange light fixture, coral couch, and teal green door. The sectional couch offers lots of seating space, and an oversized bookshelf adds a smart touch to the room.

The kitchen isn't just colorful to look at, it's plenty functional. Packed with features and amenities, including a stove/range, dishwasher, sink, refrigerator, and plenty of glossy cabinets and counter space, it's a room you'll love to be in. The open floor plan allows you to see into the living room while you prep meals. The orange refrigerator really pops!
Head into the dining room drenched in the sunlight coming from tons of floor to ceiling windows and a glass door. Mix and match chairs that are different shades add just the right amount of whimsy to the room and keep it contemporary and modern. A fireplace adds warmth on those chilly seaside evenings.
The most interesting part of the home is the decor. Items like maps of the city mingle with vintage photographs and more modern art to create a stunning and visually appealing display.
The master bedroom offers a cool wall of storage space for clothes and lots of airy windows. A queen bed and extraordinary light fixture finish the space and make it more than memorable.
The second bedroom, nicknamed the 'rainbow room,' is so fabulous you can't help but smile when you see it. Featuring a queen bed and colorful curtains, the room is sure to keep you in good spirits during your stay!​
A third bedroom offers a nautical theme as well as a visually striking light fixture and queen-sized bed.
The bathroom offers clean, crisp lines and a freshness that you only get with all white spaces. A glass-encased shower, white porcelain sink and toilet get the basics out of the way, but the green medicine cabinet is anything but boring. It adds a needed touch of color to the room and feels almost vintage.
After you eat, open the sliding doors and step outside to enjoy the majesty of the deck.
Check out this view! You may even want to bring your meal outside to enjoy the sunshine and dine al fresco!
With plenty of room for friends, the deck offers lots of seating space for friends to come and say hello. It's also a great spot to see the sun rise and set on the water.​
