The bottom floor is the bedroom with four comfortable beds, small lockers and enough space for your luggage.

Guestbook comments from the manager
AJ is super friendly. Location is outstanding. The boat is rustic and if you need 4 star accommodations look elsewhere. If you want a fun location that is reasonable in a great location you cannot go wrong here. We had a great time.
4.6 based on 5 holidaymaker reviews
perfect location for a short trip
This time we looked for a special accommodation for our amsterdam stay. The Beagle seemed perfect for this. It looks very rusty and old from the outside but that is what it made so charming. The inside was great. Enough room for 4 adults. A fridge with cold beverages, a kitchen a little flat screen TV. Best thing was the view out of the shower. Will definitely come back soon.
Both me and my friends were delighted with our accomodation and would have gladly extended our visit. Booking via Directstay proved to be unproblematic, I especially liked that I received answers to my requests very fast; the direct pay at Amsterdam went off without problems as well. Here I'd like to thank the homeowner, Aart, for his very kind services - sending us a map to find our way and promptly dealing with the electricity when some malfunction occured. We felt very much at home at the houseboat and would dearly love to live there again some time in the future. I cannot at the moment think of any improvements, we were truly satisfied with the services provided.
We had the perfect holiday on this special houseboat. The location could not be better, the owner AJ knew all about Amsterdam and provided us with all sorts of extra's. The relaxed reggea music and atmosphere on the boat is amazing. We will come back every year to have a big Chill on this houseboat! Thanks AJ
Beagle Boat Amsterdam
At first glance a rusty old wreck... The Beagle had everything we required for a comfortable weekend in Amsterdam. The boat was warm and cosy, with an awesome view... A Hot Shower and lots of little extras left around for us to enjoy. The owner 'Art' was pleasant, very helpful and just a phone call away if we needed anything. We were already planning our next visit to The Beagl before we had checked out!
Migliore sistemazione mai provata :)
Innanzi tutto vorrei ringraziare Aart il proprietario, una persona molto disponibile e gentile. La Beagle è a un passo dal centro ed è a dir poco caratteristica.. molto confortevole e completa di tutti i servizi. Noi eravamo in 4 e ci siamo trovati benissimo.. e quando torneremo ad Amsterdam di sicuro torneremo su questa Houseboath.
