Houseboat summary

Situated in the rural outskirts of Amsterdam this unique Tiny Houses studio allows you to experience the best of both worlds. Spend the day in the bustling capital Amsterdam, and come home to the tranquillity of the wide open polders, with iconic farms, windmills, geese, herons and storks. 

Or add one or two nights to your city stay to come and relax and see the beautiful historical 'summer houses' (mansions!!) that were built along the river Vecht by the wealthy 17th century Amsterdam merchants who considered it their back garden!

Combine owner/taxi car service (20 minutes to  nearest tramlines), or public transport (45 minutes) to reach anywhere in Amsterdam from the houseboat, including Schiphol airport. Use the NS journey planner to be found on the NS website, to make your own assessment of distances. (Local bus stop: Nederhorst den Berg - Overmeer)

Upon entering your riverside studio, you  literally leave the world behind and step into the placid rhythms of river life. Swans, geese, moorhens, jumping fish, storks, herons, ducks, of course, and many other river dwelling creatures rapidly become your new neighbours.

From May to August we share the river with small pleasure craft and day trippers, that make for a colourful summer pageant. But for the rest of the year, the river is ours. We're located on the riverbend between the picturesque historical village of Vreeland and the more practical village of Nederhorst den Berg. This offers sweeping river views south, east and west! 

If you want to travel further afield, then you can easily hire my car through Snappcar. 

Houseboat description

This 25sqm self contained studio apartment has its own entrance, kitchenette, bathroom, and outside terrace. There is proper sound isolation between the Riverside Studio and the Captain's Quarters to ensure total privacy. Your section of the outside terrace, includes a table, 2 chairs and a deliciously comfortable hammock. 

The high ceiling and the sliding door to your private terrace, as well as a large side window that gives you a unique 'breakfast in bed' view of the river, make the studio feel spacious and light. Imagine waking up to gentle birdsong and watching the gentle river flow by, right at your feet.

The smart studio has been cleverly designed with the popular tiny houses concept in mind. Everything folds, in, out or up, and the kitchenette is neatly tucked away in a cupboard. This allows you to make optimal use of the space. And you can leave your slippers at home, because there is floor heating throughout.

The kitchenette is equipped with a microwave and two electric cooking rings. The fridge is big enough for a three-day food shop. For a small fee you can  ask me to shop for you in advance and fill your fridge with your favourite items before you arrive.

EXTRA: I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. So feel free to enquire about booking some counselling or creative coaching sessions during your stay. Residents of the studio enjoy a 10% discount on regular counselling fees.
