Houseboat description

    I and my best friend, Elise, totally liked the place. We loved the way it was furnished and the fact that just for ourselves. It was nice and cozy. We also had the bikes for free to reach Amsterdam any time we wanted but we also enjoyed to bike through a different landscape. 

    Thank you so much for your hospitality!

    What an experience! We enjoyed so much the simplicity of the place and to be out of the classic accommodations for once. We still loved the fact that we could take our bikes and reach Amsterdam via one of the amazing Dutch bicycle lanes. It is super easy and quicker than expected. Most of all, we loved the calm and peace of the place. We could experience a typical Dutch landscape and way of living!

    Super recommended!
