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!

First hand experience of a houseboat
The overall stay at the boathouse was good with a warm welcome from the host. It was nice and neat inside the houseboat. Thanks for hosting us. A small note for the host which irritated us all is the cleanliness on the outside of the houseboat full with spiderwebs and dirt which can be easily taken care off with more emphasis on overall cleanliness. Thanks

We've appreciated this way of life on an houseboat. The owner is a kind man and his flat is located along the canal. Very peaceful and good accommodation. Krommenie is a charming little city with all you could need. It was a fantastic experience.

We’ve spent two great nights at this houseboat. It was a quiet area, great so get outside of the busy city. Only 20 minutes with the Uber in the center tho.
Thank you for the clean, cozy houseboat stay!

We really enjoyed our first stay on a houseboat. It was a great location, out of the rush of Amsterdam, but close enough to go back and forth easily. The location is nice and quiet; it’s easy to sit and watch the water flow by, the ducks swimming around and enjoy the fresh air. Would stay again!
