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!
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 photoshoot!
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 bunkbed 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. 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 Defence 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!

Geräumige, saubere nette Unterkunft. Sehr freundlicher Vermieter. Gute Anbindung nach Amsterdam. Im Ort alle nötigen Geschäfte vorhanden. Parkplätze vor der Tür.

Ha sido una gran experiencia el poder estar tan cerca de la naturaleza, la paz y tranquilidad con la que hemos estado, no tienen precio.
Si que es cierto que la estación queda a unos 20 min andando, pero si alquilas bicis esta al lado.
El centro de Ámsterdam queda a unos 20 min en tren y 3 horas en bici, no recomiendo ir en bici si no estás preparado físicamente, pero el camino que hay en bici es precioso.
El dueño de la casa ha sido muy correcto con nosotras, lo único que no nos ha gustado, es que la puerta de abajo diera directamente con su vivienda
Por lo demás una gran experiencia y deseando volver

Wir können das Hausboot nur empfehlen. Der Besitzer ist super lieb und das Hausboot sehr sauber. Es ist nur 20 Minuten von Amsterdam weg und super zu erreichen.
Die Küche ist toll ausgestattet, das man sich super selbst versorgen kann. Auch ein Lidl zum einkaufen ist nur 5 Minuten entfernt.
Wir würden immer wieder hin fahren.
Vielen lieben Dank für alles

We enjoyed our stay in the houseboat very much! Everything was there like every practical things you need. The location of the boat is great because you have sun alround the day. This- combinated with a everytime view to the water calmed us down and was the opposite of the City of Amsterdam which was as well amazing. Okay- you need a car for this location gut then- you have all possibilities: Park and ride 15 min. away, you get your parking fee back when you use public transport, the open air museum zaanse schans is 10 min. away and last but not least the seaside is close as well. A really wonderful location! And Willem as our host is wonderful too: helps with everything, answering to every question. We had impressive days in the netherlands and in this host we are coming back once again!
