Dear guest, we like to welcome you on board. We renovated our old skippers deck-house into an authentic appartment with modern facilities (fridge, rainshower, induction cookplate) The wheel-house provides a view on the lock and the centre of the city
Our deck-house is having an authentic 1926 atmosphere with 2014 luxuries. The apartment suits a couple perfectly. We could provide sleeping facilities for children in the 'livingroom'.
The deck-house has a privat entrance through the wheel-house. You'll have a privat bathroom, toilet and kitchen. We wil share the outside terrace. Dinners on the terrace can be negotiated.
Interaction with guests
We understand your wish to be by yourselves and like to share our favorite places in and around the city.
Other things to note
Our boat is located at a communal pier, which means you cross three other boats to arrive on the ROMA.
You will understand we like you to respect the tranquillity of our environment. Although you can play music in the deck-house. :) We do not smoke and the deck-house is absolutely non-smoking!
We live on the ROMA since 1997 and constructed our home in the cargo compartment. We like to construct and renovate ourselves but decided to ask a professional (ship) carpenter to help us renovate the deck-house. We are very pleased with the result and like to share it with you! I love cooking (we mainly eat ecological and vegan food) and enjoy living at the edge of the city. My daughter Yelle and Ghani run into the fields regularly. During the school season we enjoy going to the theater and see lots of contemporary dance. During holidays we like to travel (Senegal, Cuba, Indonesia, Bali, Marocco) and/or we stay home and enjoy the cosy athmosphere in Schellingwoude. I work at the dance department of the Amsterdam School of the Arts, Ghani owns a carrousel and works as a performer and Yelle is in her final year of her secondary education (A levels).
