Houseboat summary

Staying on the water has something beautiful, and especially on this modern and attractively furnished houseboat, built in 2022, equipped with all comforts.

The location is very central, both for the beautiful Monnickendam and the typical Dutch surroundings, as for traveling to Amsterdam. You can reach Amsterdam Central Station in 20 minutes by public transport. 

Free carparking is included which is very close the houseboat as well. And, the harbour also has the possibility for passing ships to visit, this is done at the harbour of Monnickendam and can be booked at the harbour itself.

    Delightful houseboat

    What a delightful houseboat! Really enjoyed our stay. It was very comfortable, relaxing and has everything you need. Manon was super helpful and friendly. Monnikendam is a lovely little village. Bus stop into Amsterdam was just a few mins walk. We would love to come back again!!

    Great care, beautiful houseboat and ideal to enjoy the peace and quiet after a trip to Amsterdam. The best feature is the large deck for sea views.

    Beautiful peaceful boat

    We have just returned from a few days on a houseboat in Monnickendam Marina. The boat was beautifully fitted out. We would have liked a microwave or a built-in oven. It was a calm place to stay after busy days in Amsterdam. The restaurants in the area were also very good. The surrounding area was very interesting. We used the buses; a list of timetables would have been useful. Thank you for a lovely insight into Holland.
