Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday house boat in Wijdemeren - Watervilla PUUR

Near to Amsterdam: mix rural with city life!

Perfectly designed house boat on the river Vecht in the middle of a nature reserve in the Gooi-en Vecht area.

It accommodates max 6 people. More then river view: on the water!

Huge master bedroom with a.o. bathroom with jacuzzi.

A second (double) bedroom with optionally a baby bed and a third (double) bedroom. Giant roof terras, plus 100m2. Jump in the water any time since your bed is always 2 steps from the water: our nature pool!. Optionally use our boat and make a real romantic river trip. Ice skating and fishing from your living room.

Check our page BNB Vreeland (Bed & Breakfast Vreeland/ Broodje Cor) at well known social media. Note: the price mentioned is based on two persons. We charge eur 30 per night per extra person above two people.

So, just enjoy the quiet environment of the Gooi & Vecht area or go to Amsterdam in less then 20 min. Schiphol is also only 20 min away. RAI fair is a 20 min drive.

The Gooi and Vecht area allows you to enjoy in all peace and quiet the many varied touristic attractions; many lovely cycling, walking or boattrip tours to offer. And on your way you will come across attractive terraces, restaurants, interesting museums and old fortresses.

What makes the place unique: there are no personal belongings in the apartment, so you will feel totally at home instead of an intruder in some-ones house!

Very relaxed, cozy atmosphere with quality hosting and optionally great cooking and/or breakfast (during a boat trip).

About Cor van den Akker

Ik ben een socioloog (die vele jaren werkzaam geweest is in het onderwijs. Na mijn vroegtijdige pensionering ben ik van Breda naar Vreeland verhuisd. Van een woning in een middelgrote stad naar een woonboot, midden in de natuur, aan Nederlands mooiste rivier,de Vecht.

Naar mijn stellige overtuiging woon ik samen met mijn vrouw op een van de meest schilderachtige plekjes, die Nederland kent. Op het platteland en toch heel dicht in de buurt van Amsterdam en Utrecht.

Cor van den Akker purchased this house boat in 2013

We stayed in this property for 8 days, great 8 days. We contact the owner, Cor and he mentioned that he didnt have the property available on our dates but we could stay in his daughter house for a few days and then change into this watervilla. The houseboats are "neighbours" so we agree. Both properties are great, the space was perfect and more than enough for my mother in law, my husband, two children and me. The kitchen is well equipped, with top of the line coffeemaker and Cor provides the coffee (thank you Cor!). The watervilla was clean and everything was in working order. The views from the living area are breathtaking, as mentioned before is in a rural area 40 minutes tops to Amsterdam by car. The area around, Loenen and Breukelen are very charming towns, we decided to stay around the area a couple of days to enjoy them. Cor and his family were the perfect hosts, his grandchildren are adorable and our kids were every afternoon after our daily tours were looking forward to arrive to play with them. A neighbour even took them for a boat trip one afternoon!. My mother in law has lots of problems waking and still was not bad for her going down the stairs to her bedroom. Upstairs there is a half toilet which we found it very convinient. Cor was always there to help. We hope we can be back in a near future. Thank you Cor for everything.

Wonderful stay in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

To be fair, the place we actually stayed at is only a couple houses away, but own by Cor. Ok, now on to the review. We were very fortunate that we driving into the area. The houseboat is located out in a rural part of the Netherlands, outside of Amsterdam, which was very relaxing. This was something that we were really looking forward to. We had been in contact with the owner (Cor) the entire time prior to our arrival. He was always available to answer any questions that we might have. Cor was not able to meet us when we arrived because his children had planned an outing for him and his wife, being that it was their 40th anniversary, but he still made sure that we had everything we needed. One of the neighbors even came over and checked on us. The house was just as advertised. It is on a nature preserve with plenty of ducks, geese, and swans to keep you in awe. My son had a blast feeding the ducks, it was a great experience for him. The house was very clean, and had everything we needed. The area is nice and quiet, but I still think there is enough going on out there where you don't feel like you are alone. If you are driving or you will have a rental car, just be aware that the road on the way to the house is narrow, and you need to have some European driving experience to appreciate the side pull-off for passing. Having a car also helped with going back and for to the train station, and going to the next village over for some shopping (wine and what not). We would definitely go back to this place, as the house was great, in a great location, and the owner was a ultra nice guy. Thanks Cor for the wonderful stay. Hope to meet you in the future.

Très bon accueil du propriétaire qui nous a fait découvrir avec son bateau la campagne environnante ! La location est conforme aux photos et se situe dans une réserve naturelle. Confort irréprochable, vue imprenable sur les canaux.... Le tout à 15 minutes en voiture d'Amsterdam !! Encore un grand merci à Cor qui nous a très bien accueilli .

Sehr idyllisch und trotzdem zentral

  • 5 of 5

Sehr modernes Hausboot in sehr idyllischer Lage.

Das Hausboot verfügt über jeden Komfort den man sich wünschen kann: hochwertige Ausstattung, stylisches Design, Fußbodenheizung, hochwertiger Kaffeeautomat, Spülmaschine, Microwelle usw. usw. Die Küche ist voll ausgestattet, von allem (inkl. Kaffeebohnen) ist genügend da. Die Couch und die Betten sind sehr gut. Nicht durchgesessen/-gelegen. Das Bad ist ebenfalls voll ausgestattet. Tolle Duschanlage, Badewanne mit Whirlpool. Badesalze, Shampoo und Duschgel immer verfügbar. Also alles in Allem: es fehlt an nichts.

Wir hatten uns dafür entschieden, das vom Eigentümer angebotene Frühstück zu buchen und haben diese Entscheidung nicht bereut. Das Frühstück wurde sehr liebevoll angerichtet und war sehr abwechslungsreich mit frisch gepresstem Orangensaft, frischem Obst, selbst gemachten Smoothies, Müsli oder Rühreiern. Ob man süßes Frühstück bevorzugt oder herzhaft, für jeden Geschmack war ausreichend Auswahl. Der Besitzer ist sehr nett, sehr zuvorkommend und hat auf Anfrage so manchen guten Tip parat. Er drängt sich nie auf.

Ich war etwas unsicher ob ein Hausboot im November reizvoll ist, aber nachdem meine Familie die Bilder gesehen hatte, wollten sie unbedingt hin. Auch das habe ich nie bereut. Es war äußerst entspannend auf den Fluß zu schauen, die sich kräuselnden Wellen zu beobachten und den Wasservögeln und Enten zuzuschauen. Die Enten warteten übrigens morgens schon auf ihr Frühstück, wenn man sie Panoramafenster zum Lüften öffnete. Die Dachterasse haben wir leider nicht nutzen können - aber wir werden ganz sicher wieder kommen.

Die Lage des Hausbootes ist genial. Utrecht und Amsterdam sind jeweils nur ca. 20 km entfernt und so kann man Natur, Städte, Meer, Shopping, Radfahren und alles was man sich im Urlaub erwünscht leicht machen.

Bed and Breakfast Vreeland is a modern houseboat (4 room) apartment on the river ‘De Vecht’ only 15 minutes from Amsterdam. Right in the middle of one of the most beautiful rural areas of Holland, the bed and breakfast has an amazing view on a small nature reserve. Unlike staying in a mayor luxury hotel in Amsterdam, at bed and breakfast Vreeland you can expect a unique experience and service.

Imaging being awakened by the sound of ducks, storks or coots and being served a delicious breakfast on your own terrace facing the water. Or at night, relaxing on the roofterrace counting the stars with a good bottle of wine. Maybe it’s not luxury in a ‘gold bathtub & butler on your doorstep” kind of way, but we will garantee it’s luxury in the sense of total relaxation and personal service
