Property Description

*'Arknoa 's mobile tel. is non operative from today April 6th until further notice..

ARKOA: This private houseboat offers 2 private rooms on the sunny side, with waterfront view over broad and active
canal during the daytime and peaceful at night:

The Elephant room is a large '3-bed-private', = one double and one single for 2 or 3 guests, with private entrance
and access to terrass with rowingboat... (See description below)

The Nest room is a very small double-bed-private, which can be locked, thus no curfew! (See description below.)
Linen, towels & soaps are provided.

Both rooms with waterfront view are equipped with (secure wifi: sstp), internet 'plug-ins' for laptops and WIFI for smartphones.

To secure your booking with Arknoa, please make an upfront payment of your first night through www.paypal.com (cheap transfer fees)
or directly to my ING bank in Amsterdam.

Check-in is at 16:00. On Thursdays and Fridays, innkeeper is away in between 17:00 and 21:15.
Best is to arrive on these days in between 16:00 and 17.00 or later after 21:15.
Check-out is always at 11am.

Key deposit is e50.- p.p. for both rooms.
Deposit will be returned when rooms, rowing boats and bathroom/cups and dishes/ are left tidy and clean
and when garbage has been removed, when key is returned and no stains are found on sheets and mattress
as these are not protected with 'plastic under-sheets'...
Please ask for extra protection of sheets and mattress, if needs be!...


If you are going to arrive late, due to unexpected circumstances, please phone in and please do not email, as
Computer is usually switched off at this time!

Please check for green lights in front window opposite railroad track, for finding houseboat on arrival.

Baggage cannot be parked at the houseboat for the afternoon at departure time 11a.m., but Central Station offers
parking space for luggage at the Eastern side of the Station.

(Up to 5 guests can book at Arknoa, if they book the 2 rooms/but please first check for availability in the other 2nd room.)

Please note that the special houseboat toilet at the houseboat is manned by a pomp and will cause you great problems if 'others' than toilet paper goes down the drain!

1. The Elephant room, a large 'deluxe 3 bed private' with private entrance.
This 3-bed private can be booked by a couple or by 2 persons wishing 2 individual beds or by 3 persons.
Please let the house know with how many persons you will be arriving with!

When 3 guests book the room the third guest pays 40.- per night on arriving at the houseboat.
When 2 guests book this room and wish 2 separate beds, an additional charge of 25 euro allround shall be added to your bill ( balance due)
Price: Note that the Dutch tourist tax of 5,5% is not included in the price and this also can be settled on arrival.
Please see to it that you have the right amount in cash as Arknoa does not accept payment through Master or visa cards.

Both rooms face the afternoon sun, the canal and 8 grand beautiful trees on the other side of the canal.

The Elephant room is comfortable, attractive, spacey, with books available in the room.
There are 4 windows, a fridge, T & coffee making possibilities, a radio, a private entrance, 'internet plug-in', and a narrow terrace
on the canal side where a rowing boat is parked for you to enjoy safely the feel of the water. There is 1 king size double bed &
1 comfortable couch bed (2m.L). This room is situated at the far end of the houseboat with shared bathroom/shower just down
the hall next to the smaller Nest room (2p.) and the innkeeper's studio.
Showers in Elephant room are taken after 10am in the morning as there is only one shared bathroom and wc on the boat!

2. The 'Nest room', a 'basic double bed private''.
A second very small room with one mezzanine double bed, for 1 or 2 persons, preferably one couple, adjacent the 'Elephant room'
and the bathroom. This is a good address for a few nights in Amsterdam, due to location and waterfront view!
(Asides 'Innkeeper Rose', only 2 or 3 guests are residing on the boat, variously).
Showers for this room are taken preferably later in the day due to other guests occupying the 'Elephant room'.
This 'basic double private' is exclusive 5.5% Dutch tourist tax and will be added to 'balance due' and settled on arriving at the houseboat.
Please see to it that you have the right amount in cash as Arknoa does not accept payment through Master or visa cards.
