Your landlord Juul likes to introduce himself and tell a little about the background of this houseboat:

“My girlfriend Iris and I have lived on a houseboat ourselves for over eleven years now and we feel lucky everyday to be able to live so freely and privately on the historic waters of Amsterdam. Therefore we decided to share this experience with other people by renting out this houseboat for the long term. The ideal opportunity presented itself to us early 2012 and we were able to build from scratch ‘the perfect houseboat’. The result is even better than we ever could hope for.”

Why this property

“The architect made a uncompromising design and with the help of a great contractor we managed to build our dream: the ‘Arden’. The concept of the design is based on Shakespeares novel ‘As You Like It’ where two girls escape from the city into the forest called Arden where they find peace and love. We hope our houseboat will have the same effect on you and that you will like it as much as we do!”

Unique benefits

“Is it the warm red pine boards on the outside, the retro architecture on the inside? Is it the bath, rain shower the top of the notch Italian tiling and the cute porthole in the bathroom? Maybe it is the vintage Dutch Design furniture, the quality beds, or the flatscreen tv, docking station and fully equipped modern kitchen?
We personally think it is the love that we have put in every detail of this houseboat. A houseboat that is designed to give you the best Amsterdam experience possible. Be welcome to live the houseboat life in Amsterdam!”
