Andrew Barneveld
In the bustling heart of Amsterdam, you will find an oasis of peace in the midst of all the hustle and bustle. Floating on the river Amstel you get to know the water world that made the city of Amsterdam so famous. The birds, swans, boats, fishermen, rowers and the terrace in the sun make this place unique place.
After owning and starting several businesses, the houseboat in November 2017 came on my path. The long-cherished wish to live on an ark in the middle of the city came true. The best of both worlds: sparkling and yet nature and tranquility. The contact with people from all over the world is really the joy of running the B & B. Sharing the unique feeling of waking up on a boat is very valuable.
The boat is situated in the middle of a couple of nice neighborhoods. Both the Center, the Pijp and East are within walking distance. The various restaurants, cafes, museums, squares and markets make the atmosphere in the neighborhood excellent. There is something for everyone and nobody ever gets bored. Little Amstel is close to a metro station (Weesperplein) and a tram stop (lines 1, 4, 7, 16).
