About the area

 

The ship is moored in the harbour of the former Rotterdam water company, right next to its monumental watertower. The area is called De Esch, Rotterdam Kralingen. At walking distance (2 minutes) there is a shopping centre with a supermarket, cafe Tomtom and restaurant De Watertoren (in the watertower). The tram to the city centre stops very nearby. You can also take a (very fast) Watertaxi to the city centre, it stops next to the ship.  Also in the area nearby are Erasmus University, business centre Rivium, Arboretum Trompenburg and a nature walking path along the New Meuse. The area De Esch used to be the location where water from the Meuse was filtered and purified for drinking. Around the old industrial buildings a modern residential area was built.

Eric

Hello I’m Eric! I’ve lived in Rotterdam for a long time and I love this harbour city. Just like water, Rotterdam keeps moving and changing. In other words, Rotterdam keeps getting better! I can tell you everything about Rotterdam and its attractions.

I love to travel myself, preferably to harbour places. The liveliness in these harbour towns gives me energy. Travelling has inspired me to start my own bed and breakfast, of course, on a boat.

I own 2 classic boats, that have been renovated in authentic nautical style. While being authentic, the boats also offer modern luxury like nice warm showers, central heating, fully equipped kitchens and comfortable beds.

    Come home to our houseboat Show original

    It was fantastic on the overnight boat. Wonderful “coming home” after trips in beautiful Rotterdam.

    Great Water Taxi as neighbors. In the evening, the Watertoren restaurant. Good ending to have dinner there.
