Our houseboat is new and has been build in 2010. In the past it had been a freightbarge. We transformed it into a modern designed houseboat with a lot of space and views on the waterfront. We have an open space plan, with all the luxury you also find in a modern house (children playing room, 3 toilets (with urinal), seperate washing room, baby room, sauna etcetera).
Our houseboat is moored on a jetty together with a traditional ship, owned by our neighbors. The mooring is situated in Zaandam, a village next to Amsterdam. Zaandam has all the facilities you need and is known for the 'Zaanse Schans': a preserved spot which shows the traditional Dutch landscape.
Amsterdam is only 10 minutes away: you can easily visit the city center with all the charming canals, but we can also give you information for visiting beautiful musea, visiting interesting architectural sites, eating in nice restaurants an have drinks in nice cafes.
If you want to explore Holland and see typical Dutch landscape and cities in combination, our place is the best base camp. And not a normal base camp, but one that is also typical Dutch: floating on the water!
