If you've always dreamed of vacationing in Amsterdam, why not do it on a gorgeous houseboat with the most romantic views of the city? Houseboat owner Fake Hermann's Airbnb listing offers a glimpse of what makes the city so special, and why spending your trip on a floating home will ensure you make the most of your Amsterdam stay.
Located on the Prinsengrach, the boat is mere minutes away from popular attractions like the Anne Frank house, and gives you a front row look at the busy, beautiful city. Stepping onto the boat is like walking into a quirky, eclectic, and cozy apartment.
Softly lit and warmly decorated, the boat's living room features a comfortable couch, funky band posters, a record player and records to play, and a television. In fact, you'll never be short on entertainment on this houseboat; the owner provides plenty of DVDs, books, and music! An oversized sliding glass door leads to the gorgeous deck terrace.
The kitchen makes a bright, cheerful statement with bold colors. A red accent wall makes the room really pop! Amenities include a dishwasher, garbage disposal, refrigerator, sink, microwave, and toaster.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a small, charming dining room table that seats two.
The master bedroom includes a double bed as well as a heater for those chilly Amsterdam nights! Shelves contain plenty of books, and the walls are covered in bright, bold artwork.
A door separates the bedroom from the rest of the boat, creating privacy.
The boat's bathroom features a combination bathtub and shower, a toilet, and a sink. The bright yellow walls and toile decorations add a funky, shabby chic element that ensures you'll smile each time you enter.
The best part of the boat is the deck. After a day of touring the city and seeing everything it has to offer, watch the sun set on the water and take in the people and places from a comfortable vantage viewpoint.
Even when you're inside the houseboat, the view from the windows is simply dazzling. It's the perfect place to spend your Amsterdam vacation. Imagine the difference between staying in a hotel and spending the weekend aboard this floating home, getting a glimpse of the city all around you? There's no competition which would be best!
The boat also offers many perks for its visitors, including Internet service, cable television, and a washing machine.
