|Property type||house boat|
|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
We guarantee that this houseboat will give you the special and authentic Amsterdam experience, regardless of the purpose of your visit.
The location beats everything - just around the corner from all the best places- red lights and fine restaurants - but without the city sounds from Dam Square and Leidse Square.
The sundeck affords spectacular views of the warehouses on the Entrepotdok (for which Amsterdam is famous) on one side, and boats passing on the other. The passersby envy those sitting on the sundeck of houseboat 'The Medicijnman'!
Over a hundred years old and once a sailing boat (a Tjalk) The Medicijnman (Medicine Man) was transformed in the late 1950’s into a characterful houseboat. With many old features left in place, it gives you an enchanting feel of life on the water back then.
It is located in the old centre of Amsterdam, in an oasis of tranquility,with Central Station, Dam Square, well known theatres (Theater Carré), famous museums (e.g. Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum), restaurants, and other cultural attractions within walking distance.
Less than 2 minutes’ walk from Kadijk square, where there are many great restaurants, such as ‘A Tavola’, one of the best Italian restaurants in Amsterdam.
The highest wooden windmill in The Netherlands, named ‘De Gooyer’, is next to the famous brewery, Het IJ, just around the corner and a must-see for real beer lovers.
The interior of the houseboat is light and spacious and is well equipped with all modern facilities. The bedroom has a double bed and four authentic portholes. The living room has panoramic windows, which let in a lot of light and give beautiful views just above water level. There is a sofa bed which enables sleeping room for two extra guests, a big dining table and a charming open kitchen. The bathroom has a washbasin and a bathtub with shower attachment plus a washing machine and dryer.
The position of the boat ensures that you will be able to enjoy both sunny breakfasts on the deck in the early morning, and spectacular sunsets in the evening.
Perfect location, Ideal for museums, good restaurants, shopping and night life but also an oasis of peace. The roof terrace is very sunny and if you like water birds, you can feed them from outside the windows.
A short walk to the Red Light district,Waterloo square and fleamarket and the Portuguese Synagogue.
Please check out the reviews.
New: I will also accept partly payment in airmiles of OneWorld-partner: American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Iberia, Qantas, etc.
The zoo (Artis) is right across the boat and on the other side are the beautiful canal houses (old warehouses).
We could arrange anything if it is possible or impossible, just the pink elephant on the deck will be difficult...
