Captains Jelle & Sander
The Wikkelboat is a unique tiny houseboat made of cardboard, but then made water resistant with some great Dutch design:-) You definitely will love a stay....almost all commodities are aboard and you've your own private terrace and unique view over the waterside. The Wikkelboat consists of 2 roms with each a luxurious 2 persons bed. At daytime the beds are standing against the walls, but at night you can easily pull them to the flor, with the help of hydraulic pumps. It sleeps max. 4 people.
Jelle and Sander are the owners of the Wikkelboat and it's harbour, the Red Apple Marina.
Wikkelboat is located in a beautiful small harbour in the middle of the city of Rotterdam. The area, called Maritime District, is ful of skyscrapers, water and history and all public transport hubs are juist around the corner! A perfect stepping stone for exploring The Netherlands!
