The deck-house and wheelhouse in the back of a former sailing cargo-ship van 1888 is transformed into a small apartment . The rest of the boat is a shop with sailing / marine equipment and a bunker station. The entrance is due to the age of the ship a small steep stair, keep that in mind. The surrounding is a lively harbor with sail-ships and cruise-ships. So enjoy the sound and movements of the water!
“As well as being a clean comfortable space, this is a boat watchers paradise. It is very close to the city center, but we found we spent a lot of time in the wheelhouse or on deck watching the activity in the harbor. Liesbeth gave us a good tip about a couple of authentic cosy bars just down the street. Wish we could have stayed longer!”
On the second floor of a rebuilt traditional Waterland house, is this beautifully renovated apartment, in former times used as a hayloft. Located in the protected natural area of the Zeevang polder land (EU Natura 2000), famous for its birds like godwits, spoonbills and lapwings. The view it offers is among the most beautiful in the Netherlands. Middelie is very near Amsterdam (25 km.) Other historical places like Edam, Volendam, Marken, Hoorn and Alkmaar are never far away (5-30 min. by car).
“Located in a charming area, the loft has gorgeous views of the meadows, with its birds and sheep. It’s quiet, calm and rejuvenating. The loft worked perfectly for our 3 week stay - we were able to prepare meals and the hosts offered to change our towels regularly making the stay very convenient. The area is perfect - 20 min drive to North Amsterdam where one can park the car for an inexpensive charge to take the free ferry over to Amsterdam. Even more so, we enjoyed visiting various characteristic areas in North Holland than shouldn’t be missed and this location was a perfect center point to Edam, Volendam (good farmers market), Zaanse Schans, Alkmaar and Hoorn.”

“The three of us spent a week with Karel and his dear wife and would have loved to stay much longer. What a cute house with a very good bed and a terrace that is hard to beat. It is also unbelievable how much they both try to make you feel at home. Breakfast is better than any hotel. Thank you so much for so much hospitality without being intrusive for a moment.”
