A Stunning Contemporary Designed Houseboat

Waterfront Property with kitchen and patio
This for rent luxurious and spacious recreation houseboat for 4 people is located on the Cornelisgracht with an unobstructed view to the national park, the Weerribben-Wieden, just a few kilometers from the tourist center of Giethoorn.
The modern recreational water villa of over 95 m2 is an example of Dutch Design. Large glass walls offer a view of the surrounding nature with a great variety of birds, deer and rare species. The sheltered garden at the quay has several lounge areas and a private small port. In the postseason, and in the evenings, it is an oasis of calm, relaxed space. In the high season you will see a variety of passing boats coming from Giethoorn towards one of the many lakes; holiday and longboats, canoes and local boats serving for the transport of cane and cattle. A unique location to get away to relax and a good starting point to explore the various attractions of Overijssel, Giethoorn and the Weerribben-Wieden National Park.
Water Villa Intermezzo combines living on water with the shelter of the country, minimalist Dutch Design with absolute luxury in an ever-changing landscape of the wetlands.

You can’t get more beautiful than this!
What a relaxing time we had! The ducks come up in the morning and beg to join you for breakfast. People smile and waive in the boats passing by and even a load of cows on a boat came by. We can’t say enough about this lovely rental. Everything was absolutely gorgeous! The finishes were all high end and the relaxation you feel on entering this place is priceless! Make sure you don’t miss the opportunity to stay here. We’re so glad we came

Relaxing Vacation Spot
We had enjoyable moments with the family in this lovely houseboat. The house was very clean and perfectly equipped with all necessary items and equipments. The User Manual provided by the house owner was very useful and explains all house operations and machinaries in details. The view over the river is fantastic from the house. I would like to thank the house owner Ms. Marja for her assistance and of course will repeat this experience in other seasons of the next year. Highly recommended for relaxing moments. Regards, Raji

A relaxing stay in a beautiful location
A fantastic 10 days. This beautiful houseboat was a great place to stay and explore the surrounding area by bike and boat... or simply read a book and watch the world go by with a glass of wine. 100% recommended.

A beautiful place to stay
We have just returned from an amazing week at the Intermezzo. The house boat is one of the most beautiful places we have stayed and the surroundings are very relaxing. Communication with Marja was excellent and Joke made us feel very welcome when we arrived. Our two boys (11 & 14) found plenty to do in the area. We all enjoyed hiring boats and bikes and our sons also loved the climbing forest in Passloo. I definitely recommend this holiday. The Intermezzo is the perfect place to stay in this beautiful part of Holland.
