Excellent Stay – Highly Recommended!!
We were a group of four stayed in the new love house boat and enjoyed every bit of it. On arrival Nina [Owner] took time out to explain how the boat works, what to expect, do’s and don’ts. This was very helpful and also marked us out on a map and recommended a few places to eat. The owners live close by in a house boat of their own which is worth a visit [of course with their permission]. The new love boat is one half of a big boat where the living quarters are on the first level and the lower level are the beds, toilet and washroom. We had a family of ducks & swans visit us every morning to join us for breakfast along with a whole lot of sea gulls which added to the feeding experience. If you want the experience of staying the way the Dutch do; then please do the house boat. The New Love Boat is one of the 4 houseboats so you do have a choice of which best suits you. We were so impressed with the houseboat that we spent most of our time in the houseboat.
