Would you like to experience what it feels like to live on the water? I'll promise you an ultimate holiday feeling on this newly renovated houseboat located in the city center of Utrecht. Enjoy the beautiful garden, swim in the water and warm up next to the cozy fire place!
Unique and spacious houseboat with an open/industrial design and a lot of incidence of light.
The houseboat is equipped with all needs for a convenient stay. The living room has a comfortable sofa, a fireplace (incl. wood), and a large dining table (4-6 persons). This table is also very comfortable for working at home. The best thing about the living room is all the daylight and the doors to the waterside. On a sunny day you can put your feet in the water and relax. You might even go for a refreshing jump in the water!
The open kitchen is connected to the living room and has a microwave, oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, coffee machine (incl. coffee), smoothy-maker, several herbs/spices and all necessary cooking/baking utensils. Basically, everything you need to make yourself a delicious meal :-).
Outside in the garden (62 m2) you can find lounge furniture as well as a barbecue and campfire place. It has many beautiful flowers and plants and you can sit privately. Take some blankets from the living room, build a little fire, grab a bottle of wine and make yourself comfortable.
An extra service I provide is one bicycle (sometimes two) to do groceries or to go to the city center (less than 10 minutes).
For in and on the water I'll have a canoe, surfboard, SUP (Stand Up Paddling!!) and many inflatable objects available free of charge.
My cat (Robin) will be your housemate!
He is quiet and very lazy, so he won’t bother you too much. He has his private “cat door” and does his “thing” outside. He will let you know whenever he's hungry and wants dinner to be served.
Would you like to stay with one of two extra persons? Please, always let me know in advance. I'll arrange bed-linen and extra breakfast.
How to get there
FREE parking right in front of the house (this will safe you at least €15 a day!!!).
The city centre is a 10 minutes’ walk, 7 minutes’ ride on a bicycle and 40 minutes by canoe.
Within in 7 minutes of walking distance you’re at central station (Utrecht Centraal) of which you can take trains/ busses to different cities. Amsterdam city centre is just 30 minutes by train.
About the area
The boat is located at the city center of Utrecht and directly behind the Jaarbeurs (Exhibition Center). Even though it’s behind this exhibition centre the houseboat is located along a quiet street with almost no traffic (except from bicycles) and destination traffic. You’ll be welcomed and suprised by the silence and nature, thanks to the many trees, sheer and other vegetation found near the waterside. It's also a place where you can sit late in the garden with a campfire and music without bothering anyone.
Restaurants and bars are just 50 meters distance: Italian, sushi, pizza and a nice bar with different beers. There are three different kind of supermarkets in the neighbourhood.
With the canoe it’s possible to explore Utrecht City Center or go to interesting touristic sites like Landgoed Amelisweerd/Theehuis Rhijnauwen.
My name is Marleen and I live together with my cat (Robin) on my houseboat in the city center of Utrecht. I love to travel, which is the reason why I'm renting out my place.
Hope to welcome you on board soon!
