This cosy houseboat is in the centre of North-Holland close to Amsterdam and the beach. The surroundings are very peaceful. I recommend a visit to Hoorn (10km), walking, biking or by car. Basic: Campinggaz, solar energy and very fresh water from the jerrycans, a camping fridge a record player and records of course. A solid camping toilet which is changed frequently. Kind of a bucket shower. Lots of hiking and biking km. available. Bikes can be rented, 4 good matresses. A big water terrace.
It is like camping in a regular house. Always close to the watersite. Enjoy the birds, boats an fish that pass by.
Parking is at a small parking lot at the road. You need to descend the dike and cross a small ditch and a meadow to reach the boat. The first small adventure. The boat is a one space room with lots of flexibility in it. Extra curtains offer privacy or darkness if needed.
A free canoe is available to expore the near neighboorhood. Supermarket within 2000m.
1) In case of young children (under 12) they must be able to swim. Otherwise they need to wear a life jacket (do not worry, I keep them for you on the boat), or be supervised at all times!!!! Please let me know in advance. Thank you.
2) Backpackers can request free bathing towels, so they can travel light.
3) Try to prevent producing outside noise after 22.00.
Never water shortage. Call me in time and I deliver some new containers with fresh water. Drinking water in Holland is probably the best in the world.
I am really passionate about being on the water and that is what I want to share with my guests. I rent our several types of floating objects, such as a self built houseboat "Wild Romance", a self built raft with a tent on it and a camping boat calling "Long Romance". The last two are suitable for making a trip on the Beemster canal and visit several small historic places. Furthermore I like growing fruit in my garden. And visiting endurance races such as 24H Le Mans. Or autocross in the neighbourhood. Or cosy festivals.
