From Schiphol airport it is a 20-minute drive or more than an hour by public transport.
For the most up-to-date information about public transport, it is wise to look up the route online.

There is a bus stop 400 meters from the boat. Traveling from the boat to Amsterdam Central Station by public transport takes about an hour. After the bus you have to transfer to a train or metro that will then take you to the center of Amsterdam.
A car is recommended. Parking at the boat is free.

About the area
VINKEVEEN. VILLAGE ON THE WATER.
Vinkeveen, water, nature, recreation. These concepts are inextricably linked. Traditionally a ribbon village in a polder landscape, now known for the Vinkeveense Plassen and the unique structure of the fields on which the peat was previously laid to dry.
Sailing, cycling, walking, eating, staying: Vinkeveen offers it all. Climb the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church and enjoy the view, cycle around the green polder close to Amsterdam and enjoy the crystal clear water of the Vinkeveense Plassen with a sloop, surfboard, SUP board or canoe. Or take a dip underwater. In short, be surprised by the village on the Lakes.
The Vinkeveense Plassen is a beautiful area to explore by boat or bicycle. Water and greenery go hand in hand here. The extensive polder and Botshol nature reserve are just a stone's throw away. There are several beautiful walking, cycling and sailing routes in the area. Along the River Gein from Abcoude you cycle through the centuries-old Dutch landscape where Mondrian painted many works. These routes can be found in the personal online guide that you receive from us.
There are some good restaurants in Vinkeveen and the adjacent Abcoude. By car you can reach Vinkeveen in a few minutes for the supermarket and a multitude of catering establishments. Furthermore, the port is very conveniently located in relation to the A2 motorway, making the entire Randstad within easy reach. For example, you can drive to Amsterdam within 15 minutes and to Utrecht in 20 minutes.
My name is Jan Willem and I help the homeowner of the boat with the rental. Together with a team of professional cleaners and hosts, we ensure that you spend an unforgettable time on the boat. You will receive an online guest guide from us with useful information about the boat and the surrounding area. We are always available and nearby and are happy to help you if there is anything we can do to make your stay even more pleasant.
See you soon!

We had an excellent stay at Rienk. The accommodation was cozy and peaceful, close to the center of Amsterdam by car. And the value for money was impeccable. I recommend this destination with my eyes closed.
