Houseboat summary

As a real captain (I do Amsterdam canal cruises for a living) there is only place I could live: on the water. Now that I moved from a 118 year old steel freight ship to a wonderful floating home, I love to share this experience with you. Therefore we warmly welcome you aboard our private two bedroom apartment with floating terrace in the charming village Krommenie. We live just 15 min. from Amsterdam, 10 min from the famous windmills of the Zaanse Schans and 20 minutes from the wonderful Beach of Wijk aan Zee.

And on request I can take you out for a tour with my wonderful Saloon Boat!

Houseboat description

You have access to your fully private two story apartment in our houseboat. The entrance leads to the large living room with open kitchen and dining table. The waterside window gives view over the canal. Please note that there will be a comfortable couch and chairs so you can sit back and relax in the living room. These were delivered just too late for the photo shoot!

From the living room you descend to the lower floor where you will find the two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a comfortable double bed and adjacent there is the second bedroom with a bunk-bed for the kids. 

The bathroom is located on the top floor and offers a shower, toilet and sink. 

On the side of the boat, at the end of the living room, there is a large sliding window, giving way to the floating private terrace. This is a wonderful place to sit back and relax. Have a drink and make plans for another great day. During the summer time you can swim in our canal, jump right in from the floating terrace!

If you want to visit Amsterdam, know that it is just a 15 minute car ride to the Park & Ride (parking here costs just 8 euro/day, much cheaper than parking on the street!). Or visit the world famous windmills of the Zaanse Schans, Zaanstad or the beach - all within 10 - 20 minutes from our houseboat.

Classic saloon boat

On request I can arrange a private cruise with the classic saloon boat: a great experience for sure. And for the kids we also offer a dinghy, free of charge (but at your own risk). Parking on our street is free. And if you like hiking and/or cycling, there are countless trails around our village to discover. 

We warmly welcome families who want to have a relaxed holiday with  the option to visit Amsterdam and enjoy the country side and the cultural heritage that is found in and around our village. For example, Krommenie is famous for the 17th century architecture and the Dutch-refomed church, over 350 years old. On the edge of the village you can see one of the 42 fortifications that form the Defense Line of Amsterdam, dating back to the 19th century. Interesting history for sure!

I hope to have given you the best possible impression of what we have to offer. But don't hesitate to let me know if you have any questions - always glad to help. And we look forward to welcome you aboard!

    The Other Side of Amsterdam

    Willem's houseboat in Krommonie was a great choice for our Amsterdam stay, as we were able to confirm by visiting friends who were staying in the heart of Amsterdam. They had noise and extra heat radiating off the cityscape, we had mostly quiet and a lovely canal area. It is mixed industrial, but the boat's location is residential. The bedrooms are in the downstairs/the hull, with an air conditioning unit, which is important in the summer here. It also has a floating deck which also helps when it's hot. We enjoyed taking the rowboat out a few times.

    Everything was great! Show original

    Everything was great! Fully equipped household. From kitchen utensils, towels, TV, WiFi and much more. Enough parking spaces and directly opposite 2 charging stations for e-cars. The hosts are very friendly and accommodating. Would book it again and recommend it.

    Amazing place!

    We had a great time on the houseboat! It is very comfortable and clean. Ideal to visit Amsterdam and the nearby windmills.
