Romantic overnight in the deckhouse of a historic ship.
This skipper's house is 4x5 m2 and 182 cm high.
With a seat on the roof of the deckhouse and a beautiful view.

This special and bright space is located in a quiet spot in the heart of Rotterdam in the former skipper's house of the historic ship "Veinard", which means "Bofkont".

Spending the night here will complete your Rotterdam experience, whether you came for relaxation and fun or as a business traveler.


The space
The location of the Veinard is unique, in the middle of the city, but still in a quiet place on a lawn with trees.

From this place, Rotterdam is at your feet. Most sights such as various museums, including the Maritime Museum, Het Blaakse Bos, De Markthal, The Erasmus Bridge, are within walking distance.

The Oudehaven and De Witte de Withstraat, where you can eat delicious, are only a few minutes away. Witte de Withstraat has been named one of the ten coolest streets in the world by Time Out.

A bicycle can be rented nearby, which makes exploring the city even more easy.

A small Spar supermarket is around the corner and a larger supermarket (AH) can be found in the basement of the Markthal.

It is a great experience to take the water taxi to the other side of the river Maas to visit the SS Rotterdam and enjoy a drink and a bite on this beautiful historic ship.

Dear Guests, From the first of July 2021 Im the new owner of the ship MS Veinard in Rotterdam. Because for my work as fine artist and Polar expedition photographer I'm not always around. Michiel from rhBnB (Rotterdam Host BnB) is the host. If you plan to stay on the MS Veinard he will be your contact person, receive you and can answer all your questions. This kind of ship is called a Spits. She is build in Belgium in 1913 and 38.40 meter long and 5.04 meter wide. From 1948 the ships name is Veinarrd, what ‘Lucky one’ means (bofkont in Dutch). You are very welcome on the MS VEINARD surrounded by the vibrant city of Rotterdam. Esther
