The houseboat is spacious and really offers anything you might need during your stay, and more. We host up to four guests to ensure you have all the space you might possibly want. The fully equipped open kitchen enables you to cook a great diner. Both bedrooms have an own bathroom and toilet, so no need to share with the rest of your party. And what better place is there to enjoy your breakfast than the wheelhouse with great panoramic views over the water. 

With good weather you can use two outside terraces to enjoy the sun. During the colder months the fire place is a great plus, especially with the comfortable couch to snuggle up. You have a private entrance to the houseboat apartment and we offer parking options as well. We live on the same boat, so we're there if you have any questions, yet full privacy during your stay is ensured.

    You feel and experience De Zaan Show original

    Staying at Juul means staying at De Zaan, near the Zaanse Schans. It is a special experience with many contrasts, from natural to industrial and from tranquility to international bustle.

    Houseboat Stay

    We loved the authenticity. It's old but comfortable and clean. Hospitable hosts with time to explain local knowledge. Everything we needed on board. Surprise offer of breakfast on first and last morning Spiral staircase could be an issue for small children or elderly. Lovely historic village to stay in. Transport needs to be offered from train station. It's at least 30 minute walk depending on your age and the luggage you may have.

    boat experience Show original

    Charmingly located boat, ideal for a few relaxing days. Thanks to the bicycles available, it is easy to shop, eat out and explore the surrounding area, even without a car. The nice landlady is very helpful and makes arriving and living easy. The icing on the cake would be a more balanced kitchen equipment. Thanks!!
