I like to meet new people and try to make guests feel at home. I like architecture and travelling. In 2006 we decided to replace our barge for a ‘water villa’. It took us about three years to design the current houseboat. We live here with great pleasure and hope to give our guests a pleasant time.
I am social, friendly and like to cook. I like to travel especialy in our winter. I work in several primary schools in Amsterdam and am responsible for the ICT. In summer we sail the French and Belgian canals with our barge.
The design of the current ‘water villa’ is special. The first floor is reasonably high on the water and the first floor and ground floor are separated by a full range of windows. This creates the idea that the first floor is floating above the water. The ground floor is partially below water level.
