Houseboat description

A huge and very well equipped modern kitchen is the heart of the houseboat, the perfect place to start another great day. It has a wood stove for chilly or colder periods. The living room has a comfortable couch and a fire place that ensures a great atmosphere - even during the coldest winter nights. And even without lighting the fire place the boat is comfortably warm all year round thanks to floor heating.

The boat offers 160 square meters, over two floors. The large windows create a very light and bright experience. On one side you will enjoy a wonderful view on the river and beautiful sunsets. On the other side there is a 900 sqm garden with several terraces, fruit trees, including a wonderful veranda with another wood stove and electric heaters.

The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, with a bath, a rain shower, a double sink and a separate toilet. 

There are two more bedrooms and a separate bathroom with a rain shower, sink and toilet.  A third toilet is found at the entrance.   

In the extra room on the top floor, the white couch can be adjusted to a sleeping couch. 

In the village of Nederhorst den Berg you will find a super market, a bakery, butcher and flower shop. And two restaurants. Places nearby to do more extensive shopping are Weesp and Bussum. Amsterdam and Utrecht are only 20 - 25 minutes by car.

Staying in our house boat becomes more convenient having a car at your disposal. We do offer you several bikes. The nearest train station is found in Weesp, appr. 12 minutes by car. Included are several bikes and a small motorized fisherboat to enjoy the most beautiful river of the Netherlands.

The area is known for its beautiful nature, lots of water and little beaches, old mansions and woods to wander.   

We hope to have given you the best possible impression of our houseboat, but don't hesitate to contact us when you have any questions. Look forward to welcome you aboard!

 

Note: we welcome families with children, but their safety is always your responsibility. Staying on a houseboat simply means that there is always water nearby and we can not take any responsibility for the safety of your kids. So please be aware of this.

    Superb floating home near Amsterdam

    This is the third time we visited Amsterdam, but this time we did not want to be in the city centre since it has become increasingly busy over the last few years. Yet we wanted to visit the renovated Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum - a must do when in The Netherlands. Therefore we chose to stay on a location near Amsterdam, but with a more green touch to it. When we saw this super large houseboat we were mesmerized right away. And after arriving there, this feeling only got stronger. How much love was put into the interior, how amazing is the garden and how great the views over the water. I can imagine living here must feel like floating around in heaven - literally. Take your chance when you're able to stay on this houseboat. You won't regret it if you appreciate beauty and tranquillity.

    Simply amazing houseboat experience in nature

    We have been so lucky to stay on the boat of Jacqueline this February. The first warm sun beams were very welcome after a long winter, and reflected wonderfully, dancing on the ceiling. It was a real pleasure to sit outside in the garden and I can imaging this is pure heaven during the summer months. Amsterdam is pretty much around the corner (only a 20 minute ride by car, easy and cheap to park in the P+R) so visiting this wonderful city is super easy. And also the rest of The Netherlands is very easy to reach during your stay on this houseboat. And what a houseboat it is: super spacious, very nice and warmly decorated with lots of natural materials and vintage furniture. Just loved every minute of our stay and hope that this floating home will be available during our next visit to 'Holland'. Thanks Jacqueline, your hospitality is well appreciated!

    Amazing Experience!

    In reality, the houseboat and the garden around it are more beautiful than the pictures! We had a wonderful time there with our friends - swimming in the canal, day trip to Weesp, grilling and chilling out. Jacqueline and Wouter are fantastic hosts. We would always recommend this houseboat! Thanks a ton :)
