Our houseboat is a perfect starting point to visit Amsterdam and surrounding rural area with it's windmills and historical villages. Hiking, cycling, swimming, boating or chilling on the terrace at the water. Perfect combo of city and countryside.
Build in 2011 our new houseboat is modern but comfy at the same time. Right in the countryside of one of the most historical area's in Holland with beautiful views on farmland and mills you would not get the idea that you're that close to the city of Amsterdam. (only 15 minutes). De houseboat is a large two bedroom house with all modern facilities you would need.
a loft type area with open kitchen, (gas)fireplace, we have floor heating through the whole house, large table and huge sofa for relaxing. Toilet in the hallway.
Large hallway with a 4 meter desk and drumset, master bedroom with bathtub, seperate room for walk in closet, master bathroom with rain shower, 2 storage rooms, 1 guestroom with 2 single beds (can be connected and made into Queen size double) and a small bathroom with shower and toilet.
Wifi, tv, stereo, all kinds of kitchen equipement (steam oven etc).
The houseboat is a great place to relax and be close to nature even though the city is close by; a perfect combination for a relaxing holiday combined with a citytrip to Amsterdam.
Guest have acces to the whole houseboat, no restricted area's.
The houseboat it 100% yours during your stay but you'll be welcomed by a friendly neighbor who can show you around the house and give you some tips during your stay. All info about the house and some tips are in a information book in the houseboat.
When booking realize that the houseboat is our main residence and we will need some time to check if we can arrange our own trip. We have adjusted the calendar to our future schedule but you might have to wait a day or so before we can confirm. Sorry for any delay.
Although the area great is for kids we recommend that kids who cannot swim yet wear a lifejacket (can be provided in all sizes) when playing outside as it is an area with lot's of water around.
Please smoke outside.
