Houseboat summary

This totally restyled and refurbished ship, baptized as the 'Jolie', is luxurious, spacious, and extremely comfortable! This is one of the most special houseboats you will find in the Netherlands. The boat was built in 1930, but totally refurbished for the modern needs; it has two showers, a sauna, open plan kitchen, etc. The 'Jolie' is the perfect starting point for your unforgettable holiday. The water, the open surroundings, the large terrace, the lighthouse-like wheelhouse, and the fact that you are very close to Amsterdam, make the 'Jolie' the perfect vacation accommodation! 

Our houseboat can only be rented by a family! (that's an agreement with our neighbours). And we have two lovely cats (Mo and Max) that always stay at our houseboat.

Houseboat description

The 'Jolie' houseboat can sleep up to six people comfortably. There are two double beds, and three single beds (one is a highsleeper). Perfect for a family vacation. The whole boat is very spacious. The big open kitchen has a stove, a dishwasher, oven, and a microwave. This part of the boat is connected to the terrace! Stairs will take you to the loft-like living area. Going towards the front of the ship there is a small room with a baby bed, the parents room with a lits-jumeaux, a washing room and a bath room with an extra toilet, large bath, large rainshower and even a sauna.


The wheelhouse is in the back of the ship, and has two lounge couches and a panoramic view of the surroundings. Down the stairs are two bedrooms: one guest bedroom with a double bed, and one room with two beds for children or teenagers. These rooms have their own bathroom, with a toilet and rainshower. The 'Jolie' featured in many Dutch design magazines, and there was also a Danish television show that filmed the boat.


Parking is free in front of the boat, and Zaandam is close to the Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Besides Amsterdam, Zaandam also has enough sights to see. Especially known for the Zaanse Schans, Zaandam has many sights that combine traditional Dutch landscapes with classic Dutch industrial areas! Amazing for walks and bicycle tours.
