What you can expect

Nothing says you are true Amsterdammer more than a houseboat in the canals. Curious to see how's life by the water?

Welcome to my houseboat! Bring your whole family and meet new local friends. I'll show you my place and will gather around the kitchen table for a fun day getting to know each other.

See for yourself how is life in the water with a cup of coffee/tea for the grown-ups and lemonade for the children. Kids, do you want to try the typical Dutch dropjes (candy)?

Haven't tried the typical Dutch snack, stroopwafels, yet? I'll show you how to eat this delicious treat the right way. It's a favorite of the locals, no matter the age but especially loved by the kids.

I'll show you around my boat and then I'll tell you all about life in the canals. There is a big difference between living in a regular house! A lot of details you probably never thought of like, wanting to take a shower during the winter to find out that the pipe is frozen... still I wouldn't change it for anything!

To make this a super fun day for the kids, I have prepared some crazy trivia to compare life on a houseboat vs. a regular house. It will be fun! You can also feed the ducks, seagulls and swans that visit my home.

Come over and let me know how I can make your visit even more perfect. See you soon!

My boat is the perfect quiet place to write. I've published 4 books, and working on my 5th right now.
I absolutely love the view over the canal. After 22 years this is still something I appreciate every single day. The colors are always changing, every season is different, every hour of the day too...
In the morning the swans swim up to my window to greet me."
