House Rules

Just treat my house as you would treat yours...! If you are a nice relaxed guy/girl looking for a special and romantic place to stay; this is the place for you. You're more than welcome to enjoy the charms and the warmth of my sweet cosy ship.
BUT! If you are going to be fussy about small things, like the boat is making noises (yes ... it is! it's a floating thing on water! It sometimes bumps against the shore!) Or, like some people who visited my house; you want to spend your time crawling under the cupboards and the couch to check whether it is really really clean there; DON'T BOTHER! PLEASE BOOK A HOTEL FOR TWICE THE MONEY! It is a HOME, my home, your home if you like; not a HOTEL.
I really can't be bothered with complaints concerning one not completely spotless wineglass or a pillow that was a bit too soft... I do my best to give you a great place to stay, MY private home, and I really give an effort to deliver it as clean and comfy as possible! Clean sheets, towels, pots and pans, cutlery, the works! So if you are going to look for small things, maybe just to get a discount afterwards... please feel welcome to find another place..!

Be nice to my neighbor Han, who lives at the other boat at this side of the canal, and give some strokes to Eddy the red cat who belongs to people on the other side of the street, but who likes to lie in the sun on the roof of my ship...:))

This house boat is really amazing for families with kids and for romantic lovers! The house is charming and fully equipped. The localization is excellent, less then a minute to the grote markt. Try and love it!

Really enjoyed our stay on Schipper's boat. The location was both close and convenient for the city centre but also quite tranquil. We'd definitely do this again as it just adds that little difference to a city centre stay.

Easy going, friendly . Seen a lot, done even more! Like to meet new people, make them feel at home in my beautiful ship, it's another way to enjoy life, I am convinced that being nice reflects positivity into the world! :)
I like to travel myself, via airbnb because you get to know the real life of people; how they live, where they do their shopping, who their neighbors are...
