This was a beautiful, exciting place with a great host, who made 16 girls laugh! I love having a kitchen, enough space and the feeling of relaxation when visiting new places - like in this case. Thank you for all and I hope we see us in the summer time. Best regards, Yekaterina

De boot is echt super! Van binnen is hij erg ruim, we hebben met 16 man prima een weekend lang op de boot kunnen vertoeven. De keuken, wc en douche waren allemaal schoon en goed onderhouden. Wel is de douche klein, dus voor lange mensen niet ideaal om onder te douchen. Maar dat namen de mannen voor lief. De keuken is geschikt voor koken voor grote groepen, wel wordt het warm doordat er geen afzuiging is. We vonden het super dat er geen gezeur was over geluid met de eigenaar. Zodra de ramen dichtzitten hoor je buiten niets en mochten we zoveel lawaai maken binnen als we wouden. Wat er ideaal is voor een uitgaansweekend met jongeren. Al met al: Echt een top accomodatie! We hebben ervan genoten!
