See a sophisticated houseboat with a gorgeous garden and 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, a waterfront patio, and an ecofriendly 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 the 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 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 natural light as the sun rises.
In the corner are 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 in case you need to toss in some 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 simply take a walk and appreciate the beauty of the area.
