This is your chance to enjoy a very unique, Dutch experience: living on a houseboat. Our modern two-story 'floating house' has much to offer!
140m2, situated in a peaceful, rural and green environment, very close to both Amsterdam and Utrecht. As we have two young kids ourselves, this place is great for families. Both the house as well as the garden are safe for children. Access to the water is blocked by fences.
The house is fully equipped and available to you only.

The space
This is our own home, so it's fully equipped with just about anything you need to have an enjoyable stay.

The houseboat has two floors, a big garden and a little terrace on the water side overlooking the green fields.

Upstairs (entry level) is the large living room incl. a lovely fireplace (of course you can also use the normal central heating system). From here you have direct access to the garden. Upstairs is also our kitchen with dining table and all things you need to prepare your meals.

Downstairs is the bathroom incl. shower and bath tub, a separate toilet and 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a double bed. The second bedroom has two comfy 1p beds and there is one kids room with a 1p bed plus cod.

The garden has a lounge set with parasol, as well as a picnic table for outside dinners. There is also a BBQ which can be used as outdoor fireplace fore summer evenings... Firewood included :)

Guest access
Our full home is available to our guests. The canal to swim in to be shared with our neighbors ;).

Other things to note
In case you're interested to visit the EUROVISION Song festival: by car, it takes less than 1h to reach AHOY - the location of the Eurovision song festival). Great to combine with a stay in our houseboat.

Location

Nieuwersluis, Utrecht, Netherlands

Right in the middle of Hollands beautiful lake district and about 500m away from the famous 'Vecht' river. Morning swims are possible either from the balcony, porch, kitchen windows, roof top. Whatever rocks your boat.. :)

The region is packed with restaurants, terraces, and small venues. Bigger towns Loenen en Breukelen are about 5 minutes away, including various shops, practical supermarkets, less practical but very cosy markets, the local fisherman’s stand, etc. (Certainly don't skip a coffee at ' Fort Nieuwersluis', about a 10 min walk past the canal). Boat rentals also about 500m away.

On a bit larger scale: We're located between Amsterdam and Utrecht. Both are about 20min away. There is a bus stop at walking distance, taking you to either Amsterdam or Utrecht. In Breukelen there is a train station with very good connections.

On an even larger scale, we're based in Holland, or The Netherlands. Famous for our water works, bicycles, tulips, weed, red-light districts and wooden shoes...

Hi, my name is Esther. I'm married with Elmar and we have two young kids (4 and 2,5 years old). We try to enjoy life as much as we can! Relaxing at home in front of the fireplace in winter or swimming, walking, and playing outside in summer. Next to that we love to travel and show our kids the world!
