This comfortable apartment is fully self catered and on an amazing ship that lies in the centre of Rotterdam. In walking distance of the Markthal, Coolsingel, Koopgoot and Erasmusbrug. Enjoy everything that Rotterdam has to offer. Look for me on Social Media use @ HouseboatRotterdam. I share tips and nice pictures there.

The space
This Ship, a Spits, was build in 1937. It was used to carry goods over the Dutch rivers. In 2009 the biggest part of the Ship, the cargo hold, was fully renovated and made into accommodation for guests to stay in. This means that the space is clean and comfortable, and at the same time you still feel that you're on a ship. Rotterdam, being an seaport, is connected to the sea. This means that the ship moves with the tides. The difference is 2 meters, so it's possible you go into town and have to climb the walkway while leaving the ship and when you come back you have to climb the walkway again while entering the ship.

Where you’ll be

Rotterdam, Zuid-Holland, NL, Zuid Holland, Netherlands

Rotterdam is an amazing city with interesting architecture, nice restaurants and bars and of course the harbor that gives it its international allure. The best part of the location of the ship is that it's in the city centre. That means you can walk to all Points of interest. The most bustling and vibrant street of the city with wonderful bars and restaurants, the Witte de Withstraat is visible from the ship.

I'm born in Holland and currently live in Rotterdam. I studied Law and Medieval History in Groningen. I have worked in Knowledge Management in big Lawyers firms for about 15 years and currently coordinate Tenders for an IT Company. In february 2017 I moved from a small, 40 sqm, houseboat in the beautiful old centre of Amsterdam to my beautiful 200 sqm ship in the centre of Rotterdam. The ship was already divided in 3 apartments and I moved in the one in the middle of the ship. The apartment in the front I now rent to guests who want to explore Rotterdam and make their stay extra special by sleeping on a ship. I speak English and German fluently and understand Italian and French. I love to receive guests from all over the world and share my excitement about this vibrant City of Rotterdam.

During your stay
I'm living in the apartment next door, and will receive the guests personally. This also means I'm close by if any help is required.

Start your city break in Rotterdam in the most comfortable way possible: order your groceries with me and I will make sure they are stowed away in the kitchen for you! So no matter what time you arrive, everything will be ready for you to relax immediately.
The only thing you have to do is send me a grocery list, and I will take care of the rest. I will send you the bill for the groceries through Airbnb and will add 15 euro for this service.
