About our home

Charming 102 years old wooden house alongside cute sailing boat harbor, panoramic summer terrace and river in the heart of Amsterdam. A free ferry can bring you in 3 minutes to dazzling city center and train station that brings you to beach within 30 minutes. Days are lively, nights are romantic, views are stunning.


More about us

  1. I'm a Dutch man, living on a beautiful peninsula in the heart of the city Amsterdam. I'm a globetrotting father of three lovely daughters (17, 22 and 24 years old). Often I'm traveling alone since I'm a very active scuba-diver and also I use my trips for writing books and plans. Sometimes one of my daughters teams up with me or my partner Farah and her daughter Lila (14).

  2. I'm a social entrepreneur, developing (international) cultural initiatives and festivals for youth. I'm also hosting the Mandela House (mandelahuisje.nl) where I support social goals, where people can get married and people can also enjoy the night in a beautiful suite with panoramic views on the city of Amsterdam or in an amazing tree house. During summertime there's also a lovely beachy bar on the peninsula.

  3. I love sun, sea, scuba diving, relaxing, meeting other cultures and people and natural beauty. That's also why I love traveling.

Where is it?


My house is on the north side of the IJ river, once bringing the water for Amstel and Heineken beer, but now a busy canal with lots of nice boats. The north side is among the top 10 trendy neighbourhoods of the world (New York Times), with bars, galleries, markets, little shops, terraces, cinemas and funky little places everywhere. With a free ferry you can hop in three minutes to the busy center of the city, with all the famous attractions, like the canals and museums of Van Gogh and Rembrandt. But you can also use a bike and within 15 minutes you're on the countryside, with cows, sheep, lakes where you can swim.
