Our ship "Meeuw" is a comfortable and cosy place, located in a beautiful spot in Amstel River, next to a park. We live here with a family of 4.
We rent it to max three adults, but children are welcome too for no extra costs.

It has all comforts of a modern home with the exiting feel of the sailors life.
When it's windy, you feel the boat rocking a little.
There are many waterbirds, like swans.
It's close to Amstel Station (trains, metro), and 10 min from city center (by bicycle).


Standard: Kitchen, Wifi, Dryer, Washer, Laptop friendly workspace, and 15 more
Other highlights: Pocket wifi, Bathtub, Children’s books and toys, Room-darkening shades, Paid parking off premises, and 7 more
