GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS Rooms on Water extended
The most important house rule is:
You treat the accommodation and its inventory / contents with respect.
In 2017 I worked hard to convert the ship’s hold into the beautiful, athmosferic accommodation that it is now and which I am very proud of.
If something does break, please report it to me. I live on the back of the ship.
It is of course forbidden to smoke in the entire accommodation. It is allowed on deck on the roof terrace. There is also a large ashtray. Do not throw the remnants overboard.
You will find all the rules: House rules NL Rooms on Water
Those who rent the group accommodation, I ask on board Extra houserules groups English to read and sign. This is to prevent discussion afterwards.
Of course we think privacy for every visitor of this website is important.
