Perks for the Parents

Spacious and bright, this floating home on a marina just outside the center of Amsterdam is surrounded by water and makes an unusual place to stay in the city with kids. It offers the benefits of lakeside living with the convenience and culture of the city close at hand. Well-set up for a fantastic family stay, it is fully equipped and has large rooms and a sunny deck.

Why Kids Love it

The residence has plenty of toys and games for kids from 7 years old. There are playgrounds a few meters away. It is especially good for kids who love the water - you can swim in a lake with clear water nearby. The city’s delights for children - parks, museums, culture - are just 10-15 minutes away by bike or public transport.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. There is no garden but there are spacious terraces. There is an ungated lake where you can have a swim in very clean water. Children will need to be supervised around the water. The house has 2 staircases without stair gates. There are parking spaces nearby and reliable public transport options.

About the Location

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom, 3-story boat house has a large lounge on the ground floor, with a lower level containing the master bedroom with semi-open ensuite bathroom with tub and 2 children’s bedrooms, each with twin bed, and a family bathroom with a shower. The upper floor has a kitchen and a terrace with views of the lake and the city.

Style Notes

Northern European. This spacious, light-filled, modern and sophisticated home has white and wood as its key colors. Decorated with an eye on art and design, unique prints hang on the wall, decor magazines are stacked in the lounge and a surfboard rests against the wall. We love the water views and the sunny deck.

Hi, I'm Florentine, living on a splendid boathouse in Amsterdam with my familie. I'm a producer for photography & films. My familie: our beautiful daughter of 13 years old and brave son of 10 years old and my amazing husband, who works as innovator. We love traveling around the world, especially to places where we can do surf and living the beach live. One of our memorable trips was to South Africa, where we travelled a month from Jo'burg to Cape Town, it was more than a dream. We join Kid & Coe, because we like the beautiful houses & locations very much and we love to share our house with other Kid&Coe.-ers too.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Canals, bike-rides and poffertjes

Like a city straight out of a story book, Amsterdam’s enchantingly quirky architecture and compact centre makes it ideal for exploring with kids. Tall gabled buildings overlook the rings of canals while cycle-friendly streets are dotted with child-friendly cafes and pancake stalls. Then throw in museums intent on creating ever more cunning ways to entertain smaller visitors, plenty of green space to run around in and boat tours for when little legs are tired.
