How to get there


Scheepmakerskade 2J.
Walk all the way till the end of the quay, there are some trees and grass and you will find the Veinard.
From Central Station it is about 25 minutes walking. You walk to the Leuvehaven initialy and then to Glashaven, from there it is a sidestreet. Scheepmakerskade doesn't look like a real street.

From central station take the metro (D direction Akkers, E direction Slinge) or tram ( number 23 or 25) and get off at Leuvehaven. From Leuvehaven it is sort of accross the water behind the hotel that you see. You'll have to walk around the water to get to Scheepmakerskade, this is about 7 minutes walk. see the map.

You can also go to Blaak station, from there it is about 10 minutes walking.
You can always take a taxi and tell him to drive to the end of the Scheepmakerskade.

Good Luck.

Houseboat owner


My name is Petra and I have lived on this beautiful ship for 16 years, on the most beautiful spot in Rotterdam. I really enjoy living on the water and share this experience with other people too. Being an artist, I have built the two rooms that I rent out to guests. For me these spaces are like nests in the form of a work of art.

Next to the B & B I follow a training for body-oriented psychotherapy. This is a method of working in which the body and the mind are used together as an input in the research and treatment of existential questions. I also work with the client on the ship.

I enjoy it to welcome all kinds of people on board. So in the middle of the city is a perfect place. All kinds of things happen around you, and yet you do not have to go to them all the time.

Being is enough.

Especially in the sun on deck of the ship.
