A luxurious and spacious houseboat for rent near Giethoorn. The houseboat can be rented for people who want to go on holiday to Giethoorn, discover the Weerribben-Wieden National Park or just want to enjoy the peace and quiet. A unique location on the water with an unobstructed view of the reed beds. From the modern interior, high glass walls offer a view of the surrounding nature and you can spot many holiday boats in summer, in addition to various birds. An adjacent sloop can be rented.

The space
This self-built and designed houseboat is located on one of the canals in the Weerribben Wieden National Park. The design and furnishings are modern, luxurious and equipped with all comforts. A kitchen with natural stone top located below the water level is fully equipped and has a dishwasher and 2 ovens. From the round dining table with 4 chairs you have a clear view of nature and in the summer the many boats that pass by.
The living room has a sitting area with TV and a music system. Separate toilet and the spacious bathroom are luxuriously finished. The sleeping areas are again below the water level. A smaller bedroom with a bunk bed can accommodate 2 people. The larger bedroom has a double bed. The whole is heated by air heating and controlled by means of home automation. A unique opportunity to enjoy all the luxury and comfort in the middle of an old Dutch landscape.
This luxurious and spacious recreational houseboat for 4 persons for rent is located on the Cornelisgracht with an unobstructed view to the Weerribben-Wieden National Park, only a few kilometers away from the tourist center of Giethoorn. The recreation water villa of over 95 m2 with a modern look is an example of Dutch Design. Large glass walls offer a view of the surrounding nature with a wide variety of birds, deer and rare animal species. The sheltered landscaped garden on the quay has various lounge areas, an outdoor kitchen and its own small harbor. An adjacent sloop can be rented (apart from the winter period). In the late season and in the evenings it is an oasis of peace and space. In the high season you will see a variety of boats sailing past coming from Giethoorn towards one of the many lakes; from holiday boats such as punts and canoes to local boats for the transport of reeds and livestock. A unique location to completely relax and a good starting point to discover the various sights of Overijssel, Giethoorn and the Weerribben-Wieden National Park. Water Villa Intermezzo combines living on water with the shelter of the land, the minimalist of Dutch Design with absolute luxury in an ever-changing landscape of the wetland nature reserve.

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire houseboat. With the exception of the storage room and the yacht in the harbor. An adjacent sloop can be rented.(apart from the winter period).

Other things to note
If you take care of the wood yourself, you can use the outdoor fireplace. It is also wise to provide the charcoal yourself for the BBQ outside.
Hand soap is provided, but you will have to bring your own shampoo and conditioner.
The houseboat is heated with hot air heating. In the summer we can convert it to cooling, but it is not air conditioning.
The Demotica works differently from the old-fashioned switches. A simple description of this will be sent to you and is also on the houseboat.

Location

Giethoorn, Overijssel, Netherlands

The Weerribben-Wieden National Park in the head of Overijssel is a wetland area where ponds, lakes, ditches and canals alternate with vast reedlands, swamp forests and hay fields full of flowers and with a diversity of plants including the rare vibrating peat.

This unique nature attracts all kinds of birds and animals. The purple heron, black tern and reed singer are some of them. Of the mammals we see the fox and deer, but also since 2002 the otter has done its re-entry. In addition, the rare large fire butterfly in this area occurs and more than three quarters of all Dutch dragonfly species.

From the Watervilla Intermezzo you can take several cycling trips through the National Park, but also on foot or by boat you can reach this National Park.

Theo, Marja and our daughter Zoë. In 2007 we moved to Bali with our 8-year-old daughter for 5 years. Life in another country, living in a tropical climate, but above all may live and stay in a villa on the beach of Lovina Beach in Northern Bali is a dream for everyone, but for us as a family a reality. Back in The Netherlands we learned to love the rain and cold weather again. Used our time to build a house boat in Giethoorn by hand. Enjoy the nature of the Natural Park Weerribben-Wieden and love living at the water again. In between all building moments we do love to travel and explore the world.
