Java Islands is een floating tiny house gelegen aan een eiland in de Vinkeveense Plassen zeer dicht bij Amsterdam. Het is alleen bereikbaar per boot en je waant je er in een oase van rust midden in de natuur. Bootje te huur voor €25 per dag om zelf te kunnen komen en weg gaan naar het eiland. Kijk ook eens naar onze andere tiny houses Java Island 2 en Borneo Island. Deze hebben een houtkacheltje staan. Gezellig voor het brandend kachelvuurtje in de herfst.
“This island and the houseboat are a dream. Really great for relaxing. You have your peace and can enjoy nature! As for shopping before: you should note that there is no toaster or oven, ie best to buy bread or cereal. You can use the barbecue, so you should bring coal and Grillanzünder. One should not forget that the house is not connected to water pipes / sewage, but Tineke is super attentive and helpful, as soon as gas or water is even close to empty. She is very cordial and the communication has always been great: very nice and quick answers. Thank you, Tineke, for your hospitality and great stay! We'll be back!”
Dit chalet is binnen 6x4 en voorzien van keuken (met magnetron-oven en koelkast), badkamer met douche en toilet, een knusse bedstee (1.40m x 2.00 met een opstapje) en voldoende bergruimte. Het ruime, overkapte terras van 6x3 meter (westen) betrek je gemakkelijk bij de leefruimte. Je zit echt áán het (zwem)water van de Vinkeveense plassen. Goed bereikbaar (20km van Amsterdam Centrum, 15 van Utrecht, 3 van de A2) en eventueel (tegen meerprijs) met gebruik van fietsen en zeilboot (met motor).
“With this being our first holiday together without the children it took some time to find what we wanted from our holiday. Peter met us and walked us to our accommodation and we were not disappointed. The chalet exceeded our expectations and was the perfect size for two. I instantly felt comfortable here. The cleanliness and homely touches certainly added to the comfort. Thought has definitely gone in to making this a home from home for travellers and is much appreciated. Towels, bedding and extra blankets are all available. Peter and Leonic are both friendly and helpful and Peter is quick to respond to any questions and will suggest places to visit if needed. They live in a houseboat next door but are inobtrusive but are there if you need anything. We made use of the bicycle's for a small daily fee and cycled to Utrecht, an absolutely beautiful cycle. The view from the bedroom is so beautiful any time of day. Sitting in the patio area is so relaxing. The peace and tranquility is a holiday in itself without exploring any further! Five nights was not enough for us and unfortunately ran out of time to experience a day on Peter's boat. Will book a day on our next visit, hopefully next september.”
At 20 minutes from Amsterdam you’ll find the Vinkeveen Lake district. A beautifull area for all sorts of watersports and outdoor activities. The housboat is on an island at the heart of this. An ideal place for a holiday with Amsterdam, utrecht and rotterdam at your diposal. The use of the electric boat is free of charge and free wifi is available.
“Kick’s boat house is in a beautiful small suburb 30 min from Amsterdam by car. We are a group of 4 adults (couples), and the 2 large bedrooms is very confortable for us. We are glad kick let us use the guest house. The house is sparkling clean and we love the surroundings. It is a truly a wonderful getaway from the city. We need to take the dinghy from the parking spot to the bkat house as ig is literally an island, however we love the whole experience. Kick and Liz sent us detailed videos on how to operate the boat, how to get to the boat house and other details we need to follow, so checking in is no problem for us. Make sure to get plenty of groceries as it take quite some time to go out and once we arrive we basically just wanna stay in. We came in March and the weather are still really cold at night, remember to buy some wood for the heater as the electric heater is sometimes not enough during extra cold nights. We stayed here for 4 nights and we have no complaints. We love it and will definitely come back and recommend it to our friends! Thank You for hosting us, See you again soon, Stay safe and healthy!”
