Located in Amsterdam, this modern houseboat with a rooftop terrace has three levels. The private studio on the top level is available to rent through Airbnb. Here I’ll share with you a tour of the private studio.

Inside the one bedroom studio is a living area with a built-in desk, bathroom and small kitchenette. Including the large rooftop terrace the top floor is 753 sq ft.

The terrace provides additional living space when you open the glass sliding doors. I could imagine napping in the hammock on the deck.

This is a 30 year old classic Mercedes Van now happily serving as the Surf Bus.

Since it’s a big van, it would make for an absolutely awesome little home on wheels for van dwelling and adventuring.

If traveling is something that’s on your agenda, maybe you can consider a similar set up?

In this case, the bus stays put in the countryside of De Woude, North Holland, Netherlands.

Here you’re near Amsterdam and the North Sea Beach. Have a look below, learn more, consider staying (if you want), and enjoy!
