See a sophisticated houseboat with a gorgeous garden but an even better living room

Surrounded by water, Frans' Airbnb listing for his apartment houseboat leads you into a quiet, peaceful home that will let you leave your cares behind. The one-bedroom apartment features gorgeous views, a fresh, bright, interior, and plenty of space for a relaxing weekend stay.
Known as a water villa, this unconventional floating home includes a lovely garden, waterfront patio, and an eco-friendly design that includes the use of solar power. Located 25 minutes from Amsterdam, this beautiful home is a welcome respite from the busy city.

The living room offers hardwood floors and a crisp white interior, with a white couch and chair along with a coffee table and floor lamp. The minimal design lets the water be the real star of this home, as floor to ceiling windows can attest.
The modern, updated kitchen offers every convenience, including an oven/range, microwave, sink, and dishwasher. An elegant slate gray countertop and refrigerator offer just the right amount of color and look beautiful next to the shining stainless steel appliances.
A small dining room table is tucked into the corner, creating a cozy nook for two to dine. A television makes it easy to relax and watch while you grab a bite to eat.
The view is absolutely incredible and awe-inspiring.
A winding, wooden staircase takes you downstairs to the home's bedroom, an airy hideaway with a double bed. Overhead windows let in beautiful natural light as the sun rises in the morning.
In the corner, there's a wooden desk and chair, along with several storage drawers.
The floating home boasts a gorgeous bathroom with a stand-up shower, toilet, and sink.
The bathroom has it all, including a washer and dryer set just in case you need to toss in some impromptu laundry during your stay.
Watching the sun rise and set on the water is a treat that everyone should experience at least once! The natural light adds a warmth to the home that feels cozy and inviting.
You may even get acquainted with some local wildlife during your stay. Take a bike ride into town and have lunch or shop, check out the nearby windmill in Sloten, or just take a walk and appreciate the beauty of the area.
