Houseboat description

We promise you a great sense of freedom, with amazing views over the Zaan River and the famous Dutch clouds, that inspired Rembrandt to create his amazing paintings, drifting by. Yet you're in the buzz of Amsterdam in just 20 minutes by car and less than 30 minutes by public transport. 

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.

    The houseboat is very quiet, generously and comfortably furnished. A dream destination in summer. Unfortunately we had a bad time, it was rainy and cold. Accordingly, it was also very uncomfortable and cold in the houseboat. The infrared heaters didn't bring any heat into the rooms. The landlords tried very hard and brought us 3 electric heaters, but even they didn't manage to produce a cozy warmth. When there was still no water on board, we left 1 day earlier than planned. Oh yes, we also found out that the toaster is broken and the fridge doesn't cool.

    Great stay Show original

    We spent a pleasant week aboard this very well equipped barge. We appreciated José's welcome, his availability and of course these very filling and very good breakfast baskets. Smells of cocoa among the mills and superb sunsets.
