Houseboat summary

This little gem allows you to explore the lakes of the Loosdrechtse plassen with almost all the comforts of home. The boat comes with its own private island in the middle of a nature conservation area. If you are looking for peace and quiet and somewhere to relax look no further. It is also possible to rent bicycles or a small boat with an outboard to explore the area. Children love it!

The boat is docked in Breukelen, between Amsterdam and Utrecht which are both reachable within 20 minutes.

Houseboat description

You are allowed to sail the boat without a license although it is preferred that you have some basic experience. The boat (6.5 meters long and 3m wide) provides 4 beds, a small kitchen with refrigerator, a two burner hob and heating for those cold mornings and evenings.

There is hot water, a shower and chemical toilet. We also have 4 USB ports so that you can charge-up your mobile devices.

On the secluded island (6mx15m) i just 100 meters from the berth in the harbour there is a 230v power supply as well as a picnic table and chairs. The boat carries its own water tanks and via bluetooth you can play your favourite tunes via the radio and stereo speakers. There is a large dining table on the boat with four chairs & enough pots and pans in the kitchen to cook up a feast.

How to get there

Our harbor is easy to reach by car. Coming from Utrecht turn off the A2 at Breukelen and carry on to the village after passing the train station. Take a left at the roundabout driving into the village then a further right at the AlbertHein (supermarket). Carry on into the village and take a right after crossing a small bridge. The road is a narrow street which leads you over a smaller bridge. Carry straight on at the crossroad for about 1.5 km. At the next junction turn left. You are now on the Scheendijk the harbor is about 300 meters further on your right.

I live in the area with my family on a large houseboat. When our camper-boat is not rented out we love using it to get away. We are pleased to be able to share this experience with you.

    What a great houseboat concept this is!

    We very much enjoyed our stay on the houseboat. What a great concept in a very nice location! The camper boat is definitely a unique idea. The fun of sailing combined with the facilities of a luxury camper.

    Perfect weekend!

    We rented the boat last minute as we did plan to take a short weekend trip to Amsterdam and Utrecht. The watercamper had everything we needed for the weekend, so we were able to cook, take trips to the private and the public island with the boat and just relax. Everyone was really friendly and greeted us while we passed with the boat. John and his wife are great hosts and really nice! overall this was a great experience with lots of fun.
