The Conscious Earth Boat is a houseboat that is located on a calm spot in the city center of Amsterdam, at Westerdok.
Docked only a few minutes walking from Amsterdam Central Station with renovated living space. The boat has all facilities a normal house also has, from the quality you expect from a house. The location couldn’t be better: inside the buzzing city center, yet on a quiet and peaceful dock.
About the boat
The boat is much more than just a place to stay. The various roof windows and portholes enable a cheerful play of light and shades dancing through the boat. Outside you can enjoy the views while you sit on the spacious large deck. There are couches, a barbecue and several other outdoor facilities on deck.
The room with 1 double bed and 1 single bed (single bed is made up as a couch on the pictures) is located in the front of the boat. The roof windows can be opened, the room feels cozy and has a lot of space for luggage. The entrance of the room is still in its original state, note that this might not be an easy entrance for everyone as it is relatively small in comparison to a normal door.
The second bedroom is located next to the the other bedroom and has a spacious double bed and a side window.
In the living room there is a big table to enjoy breakfast while making plans for a new day in town. Good speakers with vintage record player make the ambient in the living room complete. There are also 2 sofa’s that can be unfolded into double beds.
The kitchen offers a micro-wave + oven, stove, fridge, toaster, coffeemaker, water cooker and abundant tableware. With many wonderful restaurants and bars around we imagine you don’t want to think about cooking yourself at all. But should you want to, you can 🙂
The bathroom offers everything you need during a well deserved houseboat holiday in Amsterdam: shower, toilet and sink with mirror, as well as a hair dryer, shampoo and soap.
Be assured that the apartment is very well insulated and equipped with comfortable heating so you will be nice and warm even on the coldest winter days.
Furthermore the whole place offers enough sockets, so you won’t have any issues charging your electrical devices. There are also several laptop friendly workspaces spaces.
The wheelhouse has two couches, a desk and a lot of space for jackets, shoes and other such things. With windows all around this is an amazing place to enjoy a 360 degree view while relaxing inside the boat.
The boat offers all the privacy you want. The harbor is calm and the boat will be all yours during your stay.
And the best thing is maybe that this is not even a house boat. This is a pleasure craft. It can go anywhere. It is also possible to rent the boat in Zaandam, in Haarlem or just for a cruise. Please get in contact for any details regarding these options.

The home base of the barge is situated just 1 km from the Amsterdam Central Station in a calm and quiet neighborhood of Amsterdam City Center, at Westerdok. It is just a few hundred meters away from the world famous canals, yet hidden in a calm district of canals that is just as beautiful. Very close to Westerpark and to the free ferries to cross the IJ-river to the stunning upcoming North of Amsterdam.
All public transport is in walking distance, while you are already at the epicenter of Amsterdam. There is also 1 bike available for use and bike-rental is also nearby and recommended to do at Amsterdam Central Station.
The boat feels and functions just like a ‘fixed’ house.
We hope that during your stay with us you will enjoy one another and the pleasures our neighborhood and city offers.
When booking from the EarthFlag Store, each guest will receive an EarthFlag to bring home.
