Houseboat summary

Once upon a time this used to be a super modern cargo ship, with a separate living room for the skipper's family. That was almost a century ago. Times have changed, and so has the Res Nova. But what has remained, is the character of this beautiful ship - now a houseboat that warmly welcomes you aboard!

Houseboat description

Although a ship is always limited by it's size and shape, we have tried to make this houseboat as spacious and comfortable as possible. And we think we have succeeded doing so. Don't compare it with a high-end apartment since it will always be a classical boat. And that's the beauty of a houseboat experience It's different, refreshing, cozy and most of all: it's a from home.

 

We warmly welcome you aboard both summer and winter and ensure you will feel comfortable due to the central heating and wood fireplace. Put on some music and enjoy your beloved ones on a truly unique location in Amsterdam. The green and spacious harbor is a great place to 'get-away-from-it-all', yet you will find the inner city of Amsterdam within about 20 minutes traveling by public transport or bike.

 

The Res Nova offers two bedrooms, each with a comfortable double bed and lovely portholes giving a special view onto the harbor. For those who want to sleep separately there is a sleeping couch in the living room. And in the old skippers room, with authentic wood carvings, you will bind a traditional 'bedstee' (cupboardbed) that can be used as a single bed. 

 

The kitchen is small, but well equipped and offers everything you need to prepare a proper meal. You will find a 4-burner stove, a micro wave oven, toaster, as well as basics such as oil, vinegar, herbs etc. 

 

For your convenience we offer a MP-3 player and a small stereo set. However, please note that water bares sound very far, so don't make any noise. 

 

We are glad to say we provide both bike and motor boat rentals. We kindly ask to inform us in advance if you want to use these services so we can make arrangements.

 

In the harbor you can use a great BBQ-place, as well as a laundry service and guarded parking.
