Away from the big crowds, at 20 minutes from Amsterdam you’ll find the Vinkeveen Lake district. Keeping distance from others is no problem here as you have your own safe island. The woodstove inside gives you extra cozyness while being surrounded by nature. The houseboat is on an island in a beautifull area for all sorts activities. An ideal place for a holiday with Amsterdam, Utrecht and Rotterdam at your diposal.

The use of the electric boat is free of charge and free wifi is available.

The space
The location of the houseboat is on a private island, you have to get there by electric boat (very easy and fun to stir).

The minute you leave the harbour the world becomes a different place, being surrounded by the crystel clear (really) water is a magical feeling.

You can dive in the water from your bed, Bbq for lunch, watch the star, go for a slim at night, drink wine by the fireplace, play games, be together!

It feels so remote although it is so close by.

Guest access
The houseboat, the island and a small electro boat are all at your private disposal.

The complete accommodation is suitable for 6 adults and 2 small children.

The houseboat is for 4 guests and 2 small children in the top of the bunkbed (small).

The geusthouse is fit for 2 adults and has it’s own bathroom and toilet.

If you would like to use geusthouse the minimum booking is 5 geusts as it is a seperate unit, thank you for understanding.

Other things to note
It is Very tranquil, on the otherhand are supermarkets and restaurants all within walking distance.

Do your grocery shopping before you check in, as it is an island :-)

For coffee there is a nespresso machine, do not forget to buy the cups, enjoy.

Water carries sound enormously, neighbors also quickly love your conversations and music, please take it into account, thank you.

Please be aware that hot water is supplied by a boiler system. After long showers it could take a little time to heat up again. Thank you for understanding.

In winter, the water from the tap is not for consumption.

You can take the electric boat out for a nice small tour, do test the baterry on the engine (turn the engine off when you test!!!) how full it is before you go out as we have no plug on the lakes :-)

If you really want to make a nice tour( to Baambrugge, Utrecht, Amsterdam or Woerden) it is best that you rent a boat in the harbour. We can trulli recommend to do so, as it is pristinely beautifull.

We hope you enjoy!

Location

Vinkeveen, UT, Netherlands

The Vinkeveense plassen are a hidden gem in the middle of the green heart of Holland, the water is so clear that it is one of the best diving spots in the Netherlands (diving school is 500 meters away).

There is plenty to do here. You can endlessly walk / cycle in the different nature reserves, for example along the Dutch water line (unesco heritage).

Around the corner is the Vinkeveense harbor with the cozy boathuis restaurant. The harbor provides all kinds of water sports, from sup workshops to electric boat rental, there is also a sailing school with sailing camps for the kids.

Along the Herenweg you will find several restaurants and nice shops. In the summer it is always nice to have an ice cream at the lock, gloating guaranteed :-)

On the other side of the lake you have several beaches and a water ski track (call Gerard for wakeboarding etc). Bird lovers and sportsfishermen can find it all here, with the Botshol as a pearl of nature around the corner.

With all major cities within a 20 minute drive, it is really a small wonder we have this in the Netherlands!

Of course you will find much more information about Vinkeveen and its surroundings online.
