Da Costa Houseboat

1 of 29
Houseboat -
1 Bedroom , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Amsterdam, North Holland Province
The Da Costa Houseboat is an absolutely charming houseboat, which has been recently renovated, so in tip top condition. It's a great vacation rental for your family, couples or business trip. Expats looking for a an accommodation in Amsterdam will find this houseboat very convenient too.

The houseboat has a large living room, with fully equipped kitchen and dining area - all modern and beautifully finished. Just off the living room is the sleeping area or bedroom, but this has no door so if you travel with friends it is not totally private. Just off the bedroom you step onto the terrace and the perfect place to relax, with a sundowner and watch the boats and life go by.
The bathroom is very large for a houseboat and has a bath tub as well as a shower cubicle and feels very relaxing.

Located on the edge of the canal ring and on a qu...

Reviewed 2 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Could not recommend the Da Costa houseboat highly enough. Perfect location, within walking distance of local tourist spots and museums such as Anne Frank House. On arrival the hosts were very welcoming and offered valuable local insight for places to eat and visit.

The houseboat itself is very spacious, the pictures do not do it justice it looks even better in person. It is fully equipped with everything you need and more.

Within walking distance is De Foodhallen, which offers a huge variety of foods from all over the world. If only I was staying longer than the weekend, I could have tried from every stall!

I will definitely be returning to Amsterdam at some point in the future, and I now would only consider staying in the Da Costa Houseboat for my return trip!

Many thanks for your review. Nice to hear that you have enjoyed your stay so much!

About the neighbourhood
You'll be staying right in the middle of the 19th century district Amsterdam Old West.
This neighborhood is an up-and-coming trendy area of Amsterdam (some people refer to the area as 'gold west'). There are so many good (coffee) shops, bars and restaurants that you will find yourself staying in this part of the town more than you had expected.

The main street of this neighborhood is called Kinkerstraat, which is actually an extension of the Elandsgracht in The Jordaan. The Kinkerstraat is a long shopping street, where you'll also find the Ten Kate Market. This is a cozy Amsterdam market. For all kinds of products such as flowers, cheese, wine, baby items, clothing, vegetables, fruit, etc.
Getting around
The area is quite residential, yet touristic, and you will be at walking distance to the well-known attractions of Amsterdam, like The Jordaan, Leidseplein, Vondelpark and the canal belt.

Leidseplein - with all its shopping, cafés and theaters - is only 10 minutes walking. The Museum Square (The Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum and Van Gogh Museum), the Flower Market, the Jordaan, the beautiful Vondelpark (the biggest park in the centre of Amsterdam) and many other highlights are also reachable on foot.

Theaters, shopping, restaurants, cafés and coffee shops are countless in all directions you walk. There is a lot to explore. But if you want to go to further areas you can always get one of our trams just a minute from your house.
