Our recently renovated guesthouse is situated in our garden, not far from the houseboat where we live in with our family. The bathroom is shared with us in the houseboat. It is a quiet place not far from town, by bike it take only 15 -20 minutes to the center. It is a wonderful combination of being in a quiet relaxing place near the river and having all the attractions of Amsterdam nearby.
It is a very nice and cosy room with a woodstove, which is private for yourself.
If you want to check in before 6 pm let me know then we see if it is possible. After 10 pm also please ask, if it is possible. When you arrive at the airport after 9 pm we prefer a pick up from there for 20 euro.
You also have access to our houseboat where you can use our bathroom. In summertime you are also welcome to use the garden and if the weather is warm, to have a swim in river Amstel.
I am available for any questions and if you need help. We help in wintertime with preheating the woodstove for you before you come home. At arrival or during your stay if you like to have a chat with one of us and if we have time, we like that! If you prefer your privacy it is totally fine too.
When you would like to receive an aura reading session by Marga it is possible too when there is time for it. You can ask her. On my website (URL HIDDEN) I have an English page where you can read about it.
We have a cat named Okki staying mostly in our kitchen, never coming in the guesthouse.
On our terrace it can be a bit slippery when it is rainy weather.
At night we lock our houseboat but you get the key so you can come in whenever you want to use the bathroom.
Together with my husband Rico and our children Marijn and Yara(and sometimes daughter Claire), l enjoy living on our houseboat. In summertime I love gardening.Making mosaics, playing the piano and singing are also my favourites, and reading, doing yoga and meditating as well.
We are a musical family, as my children also play the piano and guitar too, and my husband started with the accordeon.
My life motto is experiencing all people in this world as a one world family, and seeing love in everyone. Being a host for guests is something wonderful to do, sharing our home and meeting so many people from all over the world! We love travelling ourselves too: during school holidays when we rent the whole houseboat we will look for a nice Airbnb appartment somewhere abroad. My husband Rico is a furniture maker and he designed the houseboat himself and made most of the furniture. He has built the guesthouse in the garden too. recently he made the new bed for the guesthouse, and the bench/ bed next to it. It is fun working together at home!
You are most welcome to stay with us.
