Houseboat description

The Captain's Apartment is a truly unique accommodation where you will feel like a real captain as soon as you enter the place. With a wonderful panoramic view over the harbor and large steering wheel this will really add something to your stay. In the warmly decorated wheelhouse there is a small kitchenette with sink, fridge, hob with two burners, microwave, coffee and tea facilities, as well as a table with sofa to enjoy breakfast, wining and dining. This part has comfortable central heating, so you will be comfortably warm even during the coldest winter days. And last but not least, here you will find the real captains chair. Yes, the ship is still sailing, however we kindly ask you to leave her docked where she is ;-)

The bathroom - small but convenient - with can be reached from one side of the wheelhouse (please note that if you're having issues using steep stairs, this might not be the best apartment for you). On the other side of the wheelhouse there is a stairway that leads to the very nicely decorated living room with original timber work and a very charming two-person bedstead. The floor has a nice herringbone pattern and the bedstead can be closed with two charming shutters. If required you can use the two sofa's to sleep an extra two persons, making this apartment suitable for up to 4 guests.

On this houseboat is another apartment available: the Ship's Hold Apartment with a total of 6 beds. This place can be rented apart or together with the Captain's Apartment. So we can accommodate up to a total of 10 persons if required.
