If you want to be close to the water during your holiday, maybe you should rent a modern houseboat. Here you will find all the modern facilities you could wish for; and the ocean can be heard from just outside their walls.

If you dream about living on a boat but don't want to give up modern comfort, a houseboat is the perfect choice. Houseboats can accommodate between 5 and 8 people and are equipped with the same facilities you'll find in a modern holiday home. On each houseboat you'll find a terrace with garden furniture for relaxation and sun bathing, and in the living room there is a fireplace which you can cuddle up in front of on a day in fall when the western winds howl outside and whip the waves into a foamy white.
