What you can expect

Nothing says you are true Amsterdammer more than a houseboat in the canals. Want to take a look?

Welcome to my houseboat! Meet new local friends and gather around the kitchen table for a fun day getting to know each other. See for yourself how is life in the water while tasting the famous & delicious 'Genever' drink accompanied with a nice conversation.

Ever heard of the Dutch 'borrel' tradition? Do as the locals do and try typical Dutch snacks: cheese and Dutch onions and pickles with sausage & mustard. These delicious bites are a locals' favorites, no matter the age. And if you are joining with your family, bring your kids and let them explore how it is to live on a houseboat.

I'll show you around my boat and then I'll tell you all about living on the water. 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!

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."
