    Very charming houseboat, former cargo ship, that's what makes it so special. A quiet place to feel good, every now and then it smells wonderfully of freshly ground cocoa 🤎, which you can then enjoy freshly at the Zaanse Schans mills nearby. 😋 Very dear owners welcome you on the day of arrival and departure with a delicious Dutch breakfast 🧀 en warm brodjes. 👏🏼 Sunset on deck was beautiful, we enjoyed it sooo much. 🥰 Everything you need is there on board, the kitchen is well equipped 💯 thank you very much dear Juul & Peter for these unforgettable days ❤️🤍💙 on your ship. ⛴ We felt very welcome & comfortable! 🥰

    Relaxing and picturesque houseboat holiday

    This was an amazing place to stay. It does take some time to get into Amsterdam, but this quaint little town with windmills is relaxing and picturesque. They provided us with bikes to get to the train and biking back through this little town at the end of the day was my favorite part of the trip. Amsterdam has many amazing attractions but if you would like to relax and be in the beautiful country side this would be perfect. It is such a lovely country.
