Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

A Wikkelboat is a tiny houseboat that is multifunctional and sustainable. On a Wikkelboat you can relax and spend the night, but you can also have (business) meetings there. Experience how a tiny houseboat, despite or perhaps because of the limited space, inspires you to think differently about living, working and the amount of really necessary items. On a Wikkelboat you will lack for nothing and you will stay on the water at iconic city locations. unique experience guaranteed!

The top of the boat is wrapped in 24 layers of corrugated cardboard, making the boat not only very light but also well insulated in terms of sound and temperature! Wrapped around that, you’ll find a kind of raincoat and then, around the raincoat, is a wooden cover or solar panels. The bottom is made of aluminum or concrete and this also includes the air conditioning, water drainage and (in most Wikkelboats) a cellar.

It is not possible to sail with it (in this case, not for guests), but you can usually easily rent a boat / pedal boat / SUP with us to explore the area!

Yes, of course! The Wikkelboats are ideal for an inspiring meeting, a wedding or small-scale events. Also think of a team building workshop, a meeting or product presentation. Wikkelboats are suitable for a maximum of 12 (and for no. 4 and 5 in Rijnhaven even 20) people per boat.

When it comes to business opportunities, guests can meet with us and have a drink on the jetty with up to 50 people. However, due to our collaboration with theater LantarenVenster, plenary sessions of up to 250 people are also possible

Facilities such as coffee, tea, (tap) water, a drink, a beamer with screen, flipchart, conference speaker, lunch, large conference table and chairs can be booked.

Catering such as an extensive lunch consisting of a mix of, among other things, fresh sandwiches, fruit, fresh fruit juices and sweets can be provided on request.

No, the Wikkelboats are not suitable for this and this is also strictly enforced. In case of violation, the deposit may be withheld and the stay may be terminated early.

Unregistered guests are also illegal without prior approval from the management team. These must be taken along as guests when booking, unless explicit permission has been given for this.

Smoking is prohibited inside, outside on the terrace/jetty smoking is allowed as long as the available ashtrays are used.

That’s unfortunate! Can’t see anything on the data you entered? Then we indeed have no more availability or we use a stay of at least two nights during that period. Is everything really ful? Then you can also check if there is still availability on our Coaster, a very cool historic ship in the middle of the city.

First of all: the unique atmosphere on the water in combination with a minimalistic design of your tiny house boat… that will automatically bring a smile to your face 🙂

En next to that:

  • At least (some Wikkelboats more) one large and one small room, both of which are equipped with a luxurious double Murphy bed (~145cm wide, with hydraulic pump easily foldable from the wall)
  • A bathroom with shower, sink, toilet and dishwasher
  • A kitchenette with at least 2 hotplates, combi microwave, kettle, Nespresso coffee machine, fridge with small freezer and of course all necessary cutlery & crockery.
  • Air conditioning / heat pump so that it is warm in winter as well as cool in summer;
  • Bed linen and towels included and cleaning afterwards is all taken care of.
  • Self-check-in and out so you are free to enter when you get out or in (within time slot). Early check-in or late check-out optional (upon paying fee)
  • Large extendable conference table, a smart beamer & screen, WiFi, coffee & tea and standard kitchen utensils such as olive oil, honey, salt & pepper, sugar & coffee creamer
  • All kinds of nice tech gadgets such as tablet, smart lighting, smart locks, Google Hub, etc. available to make your stay even more pleasant
  • Outside: tables and chairs and on some boats also a nice lounge sofa + a BarrelQ BBQ (bring charcoal) + outdoor shower
  • Your own guest web app where you will find all information about your stay, purchased extras, your check-in instructions, etc.

That’s annoying, but don’t worry… we’ve sent you a web link (also check your spam box!) from our own guest web app. There you can do the online check-in, you will find all the information about your stay including all kinds of handy manuals and you can also easily book extra services here such as an early check-in/late check-out, breakfast, etc.

To relax with your loved ones and/or colleagues!

You cherish an experience on one of our Wikkelboats, but of course we can give you some tips to get around. Check our (online) welcome guide/web app for tips for the location you have booked.

This is possible from €129 per night if you stay several nights as a couple during the low season during the week. If you only stay 1 night – too short to really fully relax – this is possible from €189. If you opt for a stay with a jacuzzi, it is at least €40 more expensive. If you are staying with more than 2 people, you pay a supplement of €35-45 per person per night.  That is due to additional consumption of water & energy % linen  + cleaning and maintenance. We will of course also ensure that extra beds, etc., are set up. 

We work with flex prices, which means that we automatically increase or decrease the price on the basis of supply & demand. Compare it to airplane prices. Prices are much higher in high season and on weekends/holidays and on days with major events. Are you flexible? Then book on a Sunday or Monday, which are generally the cheapest days of the week.

Our Wikkelboats are all located at unique locations in or against popular city centers. However, each location has its own charm. In addition, there are usually also different types of Wikkelboats per location.

In Den Bosch, our two Wikkelboats are located in a unique spot along the trendy Tramkade. Here you can sometimes – especially in summer during festival weekends – be bothered by the festivals around it, just google Tramkade events to search for the dates you want. Of course also nice to visit the festival and then chill out on your Wikkelboat 🙂 Both Wikkelboats here have a Jacuzzi concealed below deck and a lovely lounge sofa on the terrace. Add to that a visit to a very pleasant town: Highly recommended in terms of location!

In Rotterdam we have two locations, both in relatively quiet places in the city. At both locations you can easily take a Watertaxi around the corner to explore the rest of the city!

@ Sloepenhaven The Red Apple Marina in the Maritime District with its many skyscrapers and historic harbours, in the middle of the city opposite Blaak station! Both Wikkelboats have a jacuzzi on the terrace, at Wikkelboat1 it is first on the street side and at Wikkelboat 2 on the water side. The rental of Nr2 also includes the use of 2 StarkDrive e-bikes.

@ Floating Rotterdam Rijnhaven: At this unique location on the Kop van Zuid/Katendrecht you’ll find yourself in the middle of the water. Here you can gently dance along with the waves, guaranteed a holiday feeling and wonderful sleep! You won’t find a more iconic Rotterdam view. On Wikkelboat No. 3 and No. 5, you’ll find a concealed Jacuzzi below deck. No. 4 and No. 5 are much bigger than the other 3. At No. 5 there is even an extra room so that you can stay here with 9 people!

Our Wikkelboat are used in all kinds of ways: during the day as a base for (sports) activities on the water and meetings, in the evening for overnight stays. That is why the regular check-in time is quite late, i.e. at 4 or 5 pm, depending on the chosen boat. Usually it is possible to book an early check-in (from 1.30 pm) and also a late check-out until 12.30 pm for a small supplement (€35-45), so as early as possible so that we keep your boat free for this. If you only want to drop your luggage before 16/17 h, please contact us because we have a luggage locker and/or cellars to keep it for a while. Totally free:-)
