Houseboat summary

Do you prefer a house, or a boat? Enjoy a holiday directly on the water, without the risks of renting a regular boat. The boat is permanently moored! The houseboat is very stable, so you won't be bothered by waves. The houseboat is also very spacious, just like a regular holiday home. If you ever stayed on a houseboat before? If so, I am sure you will do it again. If not, it is time for you to try something different and spend your holiday on this exceptional houseboat!

Houseboat description

The houseboat has two bedrooms with a large double bed (160x200), and fold-out sofa what can also sleep two. It sleeps 4 adults comfortably, and 6 if you bring two children! The living-dining room is totally surrounded by glass, with a dining room that seats up to six people. The kitchenette is fully equipped and there is a large flatscreen tv.

The houseboat has two terraces. One of them is at the front, the other on the roof! The terrace out front can seat up to 10 people, and is ideal to enjoy sunny days while sitting directly at the water. Also, when the weather is a bit off, the shed over the terrace will keep you dry! The terrace on the roof is amazing when the sun is out. Invite some friends over, and have a nice BBQ on the roof! When it gets cold outside, go inside and enjoy the rest of the evening on the comfortable couch while listening to music or watching tv. The bathroom and the toilet are in separate rooms. In the bathroom there is sink with a mirror (towels + hairdryer are provided!), and is heated.

The city of Xanten lies close to the Rhein river, in the northwest of North-Rheinland-Westfalen. The city has 20000 inhabitants, and has an extensive Roman and medieval history. The city was already blooming during the Roman Empire, and this went on in the medieval period. Take a journey back in time by staying in this amazing city!

    Our holiday on the houseboat on the Xanten North Sea was very good and relaxing despite the autumnal weather. Although we could no longer use the lake for swimming, it was great to be able to enjoy the unobstructed view of the lake from the living room. The houseboat was fully equipped and comfortably furnished. The area also had a lot to offer. The city center of Xanten was really beautiful and the Archaeological Park had a lot to offer for the whole family. We will definitely come back again in the summer so that we can take advantage of the water sports on offer.

    Perfect experience in Xanten

    Our holiday on the boat was amazing. We predominantly relaxed on the roof terrace, since the weather was great. You can jump right in the water! With rented bikes, we were in Xanten Archeological Park within 15 minutes. The boat was spacious, clean, and comfortable. We will definitely return!
