The Space

The Syrinx is an exclusive bed and breakfast set in a large houseboat floating in a nature reserve in the river IJssel overlooking the beautiful skyline of city of Kampen.
The ark has two guest rooms each with private bathroom, one bathroom which also has a whirlpool. There is now also a larger sauna There is a large lounge with seating area and from there you can also visit a large floating terrace on the water. In good weather you can have breakfast there or evening bbq. Here it is possible that on a distance of a few meters swans, grebes, coots and other waterfowl are swimming along. The large lounge has a kitchen with stove, fridge and dishwasher and there is the spacious lounge with a reading table. You can also find information about the area and activities in this region.

The citycenter of Kampen is a 10 minutes-walk, here you will find every shop you need. There you can also find more than 500 historic monumental buildings. You can do a guided, walking city-tour.

Just nice to know is that on June 19 of 2013, the dutch royal couple - king Willem-Alexander and queen Maxima - used our b&b for a resting period and lunch.

  • Просто потрясающее место, тихо, спокойно, очень красиво оформлено, очень чистенько. Город неподалёку очень понравился, можно испытать на себе настоящую голландскую жизнь. Бэн очень крутой, он нас встретил, заказывал нам пиццу и даже поехал за ней сам что бы мы долго не ждали. Очень приятно было утром выходить из комнаты и видеть хорошо сервированный завтрак. Мы обязательно ещё вернёмся!

    Pour les français ou les gens qui parlent français je veux dire que c'est un endroit à visiter absolument. Très chaleureux et très beau. Moi et mes parents nous sommes satisfaites à 100%. Le propriétaire Ben est très gentil et il était toujours là pour nous aider ( commander une pizza par exemple ).

  • I had an awesome stay on the boat together with my friend. You can easily reach the boat from the train station and there are also some parking lots in front of the house boat available. The boat is well-located with a stunning view on the sykline of Kampen. From the boat you can easily walk into the city centre or to the harbour.

    The boat itself is beautifully furnished and decorated with loads of love to details. It is the perfect place for relaxation. If you have once embarked the boat you will hardly leave it again. In the boat is is also possible to cook by yourself.

    All in all I can highly recommend you to stay on the boat. Ben and his wife are also very hospitable and keen to help you.

  • We spent three days at Bens Houseboat de Syrinx and had a great time there. Bens Bed and Breakfast is very nice, tastefully decorated and cosy and it's owner is very helpfull, not only with adresses for buyig the best cheese in Kampen. We felt comfortable immediatly.
    The location of the boat is great as you have a wonderful view towards Kampen, it's quite and nevertheless, it's just a ten minutes walk to the city of Kampen.
    Ben prepared us a wonderful breakfast each morning, which we definitily recommend to order! Apart from that we felt very much at home and enjoyed our days in Kampen.
    Just one recommendation in case you plan to go cycling in Kampen. As we had difficulties to rent bikes in Kampen itseld, we would recommend to bring along your own bikes, if possible.
    Thank you Ben for the nice days! We definitly come back!

  • Замечательный дом. Понравиться всем без сомнения. Это не нужно описывать-это нужно переживать.

  • We had the most amazing stay at Ben's houseboat! It is located in a breathtaking setting of the Ijssel river with a view of a pretty Kampen! The nature kept us hypnotized with dozens of different birds making their homes at the banks of the river. The houseboat has a cozy floating terrace for enjoying the views, the nature, and a glass of wine.

    The house itself is very tastefully decorated and the bathroom with a jacuzzi bath was a topping in thr cake! There is plenty of space in the house to lounge around and the peaceful beauty of it makes it very difficult to leave! We were very tempted to stay longer if it wasnt fir work.

    And the last thing that made us fall in love with the house is the amazing breakfast Ben brought us. We really felt spoiled - a beautiful place with the most kind host. I really really hope to return soon!!! Thanks, Ben!

Nu gepensioneerd, voorheen teammanager in de geestelijke gezondheidszorg
Ik ben sinds enkele maanden gepensioneerd, heb bijna 40 jaar in de Geestelijke Gezondheidszorg gewerkt en ik woon samen met Annegreet (die nog wel werkt als directeur - bestuurder in een kinderopvangorganisatie). Omdat we op een heel bijzondere plek wonen, willen we die graag delen met andere mensen. We reizen graag, vaak huren we een camper of een auto en reizen een heel land door. We gaan vaak naar Amerika om daar weer nieuwe reiservaringen op te doen en andere mensen te ontmoeten; vorig jaar naar Ierland de Verenigde Arabische Emiraten geweest. Als hobby doen we veel klussen in ons huis.
