A special stay on the water in Amsterdam

Book now!

The ‘Rosa’ is a former sailing ship moored in a magnificent spot in Amsterdam’s Canal District. On the Prinsengracht, right in front of the Noorderkerk (the ‘Northern Church’) in the Jordaan district. This charming boat used to sail in Dutch waters, but is now ready for you to
stay over.

About me

Hi, I'm Nout Ingen Housz, born and raised in Amsterdam. I am a musician and I share my life with Mirjam, who is a journalist, and our sons Boris and Jesse.

The Noordermarkt will always be in my heart because of its incredible history and social spirit.

Enjoy this area, hopefully as much as I always do! The Rosa gives a unique opportunity to do so, in both a comfortable and adventurous way!


Yes we have bikes for you! Two comfy ones from the famous Dutch brand; Gazelle. They will take you through town safely and nobody will recognize you as a tourist because they are regular citybikes. Come stay over and have a try!
