Houseboat owner


We (Heleen and myself) lived on our boat for more than five years. We spent a wonderful time there.
In the summer of 2020 we had our first child and decided to move to Heemstede, a city close to Amsterdam.
We still enjoy Amsterdam very much and love our unique houseboat, so we decided to rent her out to share the experience with you.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. We are very flexible and will help you out any time to make sure your stay will be perfect and you fully enjoy the city and the luxury of living on the water.
