Houseboat Dokstroom,
Dijksgracht 9,
1019 BT Amsterdam

Located at the lovely green Dijksgracht, a well hidden canal with only houseboats just minutes away from great restaurants, bars, museums and Central Station.
Relaxed, that’s the best way to describe as well as the atmosphere as the residents.
Ramiro and I bought  the Dokstroom in 1996, it is a steel beauty built around 1948, with blood, sweat (but no tears) we transformed it into a comfortable houseboat.
Since our children moved out we rebuild the forkip to a charming characteristic appartment. With 6 years of experience we still find it challenging to make our guests feel welcome on board and to be helpful to let you experience our beautiful city as much as we do.
