Sleep in comfortable beds, Rituals products, fresh flowers, linen sheets, take a dip in natural water, drink a glass of wine by a crackling fire in the wood stove, enjoy the beautiful view, cook in the fine kitchen, enjoy the hammock from evening sun ... that's a stay on the Gloria. Throughout the year. And don't forget, star gazing through the glass roof!
Suppose you even want to get out completely. Romantic together, with friends or with the whole family. Relax, take a break, take time for yourself or each other, make memories, wallow in comfort and luxury ... then the Gloria is for you. Be surprised by the luxurious, soft towels, Rituals products, fresh flowers, linen sheets and down duvets. A true hotel experience.
A stay on the water is special and offers something for everyone: having a drink on the deck, swimming, sailing, fishing. The Gloria is located in the Oude Rijn where you can swim. Enjoy the setting sun from the hammock of a Fatboy beanbag. Not nice weather for a while? Our heating reaches every room and if necessary the wood stove provides extra warmth and romance. Our 'star watching roof' provides an outdoor experience ... also indoors.
The houseboat is completely for yourself during your stay.
You can check in yourself with a key box and enjoy your stay immediately. A manual and information about the area are available on the boat. Do you still need us? Even calling is enough.
Until April 1, the Gloria is located in the Oude Rijn in Bodegraven. Swim right from the boat! Located in the middle of the Green Heart on walking and cycling paths, the Molenviergang, and close to the Nieuwkoopse Plassen, nice restaurants including Summer Beach and Brouwerij de Molen. Also visit Historisch Oudewater or rent a boat in Nieuwkoop. You can get fresh products from the farmer at 1 minute walking distance.
After April 1, the Gloria will be located in Roelofarendsveen on the Braassemermeer. Also located directly on hiking and biking trails. Peace and a view of the Plas. Within walking distance you will find the great hospitality industry PAAL7, built in a former greenhouse with a terrace on the lake. With a boat you can explore the quintessentially Dutch Kaag with its beautiful windmills and the canals of Leiden. PAAL7 also rents out Solexes, great fun! You can also reach Amsterdam, the beach or the Bollenstreek within 30 minutes.
Sailing with the Gloria is not allowed, as well as celebrating parties and playing amplified music. It is important that peace is preserved for the environment.

About the area
Our boat is located in the Green Heart of the Netherlands. The perfect combination between beautiful nature and the proximity of the hotspots in the Netherlands. Within 30 minutes you reach Amsterdam, the airport, historic Gouda or the nice village of Oudewater. But also attractions such as Keukenhof are nearby. The boat is located directly on a walking and cycling network and within a few minutes you are in the Meije. A beautiful area that leads to the water network of the Nieuwkoopse Plassen. Boating, paddleboarding, dinners in the pleasant harbors, everything is possible. Bodegraven is known for Brewery de Molen and of course the cheese. Experience it from the Oude Rijn!
We know from experience that water relaxes. And that's why we love boats, sailing and experiencing the Netherlands from the water. Delicious! We would very much like to share this experience with you!
We rent out the Gloria, an old fishing cutter that we have converted from hull into a luxury residence. Now we are building a second cutter, this will be a wellness boat with sauna. We feel very happy to be able to express our creativity and to pamper our guests.

We had a great time on the Gloria boat. It is in a beautiful location. We loved the sunrise and sunset, the walk around Brassemermeer, the decoration in the boat and the touches of attention. The neighbors of the other boats were lovely. The nearby Wagenaar bar and restaurant is a very good address. We had some issues with the hot water in the shower but I guess that's usual on a boat. The bedding was particularly comfortable. I loved my road trip in NL and staying at the Gloria was part of this great experience. Dutch are much more welcoming than French and I can't wait to come back to visit the other part of the country (south and north-east). And why not booking another of your boats? Thank you for everything!
