Houseboat owner

Michel

We, Noor and Michel and our three children live just outside the beautiful village Driehuizen, in a typical Dutch farmhouse. Noor works at the waterboard and Michel has its own decor and interior design company. Our farm in surrounded by water and nature. In the meadows around our house cows and sheep graze.

In the channel in front of our farmhouse lies our boat. Discover the beautiful north parts of Holland from the water. We were both born and raised in this part of Holland so we can show you the most beautiful places.
see you soon. Grtz,
Noor and Michel

    A true love nest purely in the spirit of the Netherlands

    What can I say except that it was a moment of exceptional happiness! Despite the gloomy weather, the stay was magical ... the setting, the cocooning spirit of the boat, the bathtub, the fire place, the local welcome, the restaurant and the little attentions of Michel, the owner, made this moment an unforgettable memory!!

    Overnight at 'de Gratitude' Show original

    We had 2 wonderful nights on the houseboat. We had a nice bath inside and outside and relaxed. Warm welcome with hot chocolate that we could make ourselves. Everything taken care of. Recommended!
