The location is magnificent and unique. Across the water you will see historic ships, a working mill, the 17th century city carpentry, old houses and a wooden bridge. You can either rent a boat or go on a boat-cruise. Walk to the Hortus Botanicus (botanical scientific garden, Siebold) and more than 7 museums, approx. 5 minutes walking distance.

Wine and dine, enjoying with friends, on my boathouse and my terraceboat. The silky swell of the water is so relaxing. Heerlijk eten en drinken, liefst met vrienden, op mijn leuke woonboot, licht deinend op het water, is waar ik intens van geniet.

During your stay

Upon arrival I (Jane) or my dear sister Sita will welcome you. You will get a short explanation about how everything works in the houseboat (20 min. or shorter). And we agree upon necessaries, like garbage, mail, cleaning etc. You can find leaflets with activities and tourist information on the table, but if you wish, I can provide you with more and specific tourist information. After our first meet up, you can enjoy your stay. You can call me when you have questions or in need of services. I want to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Guest staying more than four nights allow me and my helper to keep the houseboat technically well maintained. In order to do so we enter the houseboat once a week after appointment with you, provided you stay minimal 4 nights. (f.i. reset the pump in the basement, empty the terrace-boat of water and see to it that other machinery and equipment work as they should).
