Beautifully restored Dutch houseboat, centrally located, with room for 3 people.
You will get to Gea by suspension bridge, and arrive on the quarterdeck, where the morning sun and morning coffee can be enjoyed with gusto. This is also where your clothes can hang and dry in the wind and sun if you have been for a swim, the water is so clean that you can jump right in.
Inside the ship are:
Brand new kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine - sea view.
Bathroom with shower and sea view.
Double bedroom with Tempur mattress - sea view.
Lovely living room with view over the harbor
The boat is long and narrow with windows all around, you overlook the water at all times while on board the good ship Gea.
We have a small raft, with chairs from which swimming and sun can be enjoyed, this is also the perfect place to watch the sunset after a lovely day around (website hidden)
The location is unique - in the middle of Copenhagen harbor, 15 minutes from downtown and 5 minutes from extensive nature areas.

I will make sure to be here to welcome you onboard.
If you have any questions before or during your stay, you are most welcome to either email go text me. I will make sure to reply within a couple of hours.
The boat is placed, very central in Copenhagen harbor, you are able to walk to the nearest convenient store.
We have 2 bikes, that you can rent. This will make your visit in Copenhagen unforgettable, you will get around in no time, and see things at your own speed.
There are busses very close by, that can take you to the airport and to city center.
A taxi from the airport is about 150 DKr.
Don't be fooled by the slightly ramshackle approach through a messy boatyard if you come by taxi. Once you're on the wobbly bridge from land to boat, it is cosy and warm and beautifully equipped inside. Late January/early February may not seem like the best choice to hit Denmark but we were there partly for the Nordic Noir tours as fans of Borgen, The Bridge etc. The weather actually helped with the drama atmosphere, and was never so cold or wet that we couldn't venture out. Marianne herself was very helpful and welcoming, and left some food in the fridge for us, as well as taking us on a walkabout to show us how to get into town. The experience of being on the Gea for four nights was genuinely quirky and fun, as well as being quiet and comfortable. The cormorants, ducks and the odd seagull were great companions. The bus is two minutes away - No.30 - and even better, after a ten minute walk, the Harbour waterbus that runs right into the centre of town. There's a good supermarket called Irma near where the Harbour boat leaves. Check out the hundreds of young professionals flats and the streets named after Jazz musicians. We couldn't really think of a more unusual yet relaxing place to be. Highly recommended!
We loved our stay on Gea, the boat had everything we needed and more and was lovely and bright and cosy. It was great waking up on the water every day and although it is a ten minute trip by public transport into the centre, the harbour bus which departs from just across the water was a great way to see some of the city. There is a supermarket and cafe very close by too. Marianne was a fantastic host, very flexible with check in times and came to meet us on arrival and departure. She also left us some yummy supplies including chocolate and beer which was very kind! Would recommend to any one.
We had a wonderful stay at Marianne's boathouse. It is a beautiful home in a lovely and tranquil area. Marianne was very helpful and made our stay enjoyable and welcoming. She had left food and goodies for us when we arrived late in the evening the first day. We hope to come again!
We had a fantastic time staying on this lovely houseboat. It was a beautiful, comfortable place to stay and very easy to get into the centre of Copenhagen (10 mins on a bus, bus stop just by the boat).
Marianne was lovely, she came to say hi and show us round the boat - was very flexible about times, and had left us some tea/coffee etc to get us going.
I would heartily recommend this to anyone who wants to visit the lovely city of Copenhagen but wants to stay "somewhere special"
Marianne vulde de koelkast met ontbijt, chocolade, druiven en een biertje. Enthousiast gaf ze alle nodige info over de stad en hoe die te bereiken.
Wonderful space to come back to after a day's sightseeing....and to wake up to. No 30 bus and waterbus provide easy routes to downtown. Marianne a welcoming and informative host
Overall, our stay on Gea was a lovely experience. Marianne was a most gracious and generous hostess. Upon arrival, she greeted us warmly and provided a number of helpful words of advice. The boat was exactly as advertised and pictured; pleasantly decorated, amazing clean and well appointed,
Gea proved to be a comfortable and cozy base for our Copenhagen vacation. Marianne's well stocked kitchen was a pleasure to use, made no less so by her generous provisions that she made available to us. No one could hope for a more attentive and thoughtful host.
As noted above, Gea was a calm and pleasant base for our Copenhagen visit. AirBnb users should bear in mind, however, that it is some distance from the City Center. Although the boat is served by a busy bus line with a stop no more than 500 feet away, travelers like us who prefer to discover a new city on foot may find the location somewhat problematic. I would recommend that travelers enjoying Marianne's lovely boat plan to investigate the cost of renting a bicycle or purchasing a public transportation pass, which like everything in Denmark are breathtakingly expensive to the American traveller.
Personlig udvikling af mig selv og de mennesker jeg møder.
Jeg elsker at inspirere og at blive inspireret.
Nyder at leve på vandet, i al slags vejr.
Har igen i år ambitioner (email hidden) vinterbader - men synes at vandet er for koldt.
Som din vært vil jeg afstemme forventninger og dermed sikre at du har fået det ophold du forventede.
