Welcome aboard the historic cargo ship The Out of Expectation. Airbnb's space is the old boatman's residence (rowing) and the wheelhouse with its own entrance and private space. In the wheelhouse you can enjoy breakfast or read a book with views over the water and the harbour. Modernly furnished as a studio, the row is cleverly equipped with everything you need for a stay. The dog is also welcome on board. Our ship is located in the most beautiful part of Nieuwegein: Vreeswijk.

The space
The Airbnb occupies the wheelhouse and old boatman's home (rowing), which is equipped with all amenities. The wheelhouse and rudder can be reached separately from the hold and are therefore completely private.
In the summer months we are sailing, send a personal message about the possibilities for a stay on board.

Wij wonen op een historisch vrachtschip. We houden van reizen en plaatsen ontdekken in binnenland en buitenland. Met ons woonschip varen we door heel Nederland. We verhuren een deel van ons schip als Airbnb.

During your stay

We also live on the ship, in the hold, with our beagle. So should there be anything missing or missing, don't hesitate to report it.
