Excellent! 5/5

    In the middle of nature, yet close to cities

    We just came back from 5 days at this houseboat. And how lovely it was! The boat is very cosy and all you need is there. The boat is located in a quiet area, but if you want to get away from the countryside, you're in the great city Leeuwarden in just 15 minutes driving. And just a bit further you find the even cooler city of Groningen. Also Dokkum, Drachten and Grou are not too far away at all. On the houseboat you will find all kinds of maps and suggestions for where to go and what to do. And last but not least: we think that Joke and Alexander are great hosts. Very friendly and easy to reach. All and all we had a great time here!

    Modern houseboat with great amenities

    Marvellous location. Peaceful and serene. The houseboat is modern and has all amenities. The upper floor has fantastic views in all directions and the lower floor has more rooms including a modern bathroom, laundry room and more bedrooms. Our hosts were positive, friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay. Recommended.

    Great 5 days

    We spent 5 days on the boat, with 4 people. We very much liked it; would also be enough space for 6 persons. Great location in Nature, good view on the canal. Excellent WiFi, even when using multiple devices. Very clean. Well equipped.

    Astonishing views and quiet atmosphere

    What a great boat this is: ideal if you like the tranquility of nature. The boat is equipped with all modern amenities you can possibly ask for, and we will surely be back. The houseboat is located in the middle of wonderful area, and however there are a lot of water enthusiasts passing by in boats, it's still pretty quiet. And the views over the water and grass lands are astonishing!

    Had a wonderful week Show original

    We spent a midweek on the "Luxury Frisian Houseboat". A beautiful accommodation in a beautiful location. A place where it can still be really dark and quiet. Good beds and complete kitchen. Frits and Diana
