About Marja van Adrichem
Theo, Marja and our daughter Zoe. As a family, we have found our home in a small village in the middle of the Netherlands. Here we are surrounded by meadows and orchards, with views and an ever-changing river landscape. After five years spent abroad, we are enriched with experiences and adventures, returned. A familiar environment, a warm welcome by family, neighbors and friends, but above all a culture that is known to us. However, new challenges are emerging, new opportunities to explore, but closer to home. In the nature of the Weerribben-Wieden near Giethoorn a houseboat was for sale. An old boat in original condition with little refurbishment capabilities, but with a special berth and with an almost even nicer name; Intermezzo. We as a family took this challenge, but in the end above all he will do the job.
Marja van Adrichem purchased this House Boat in 2017
Why Marja van Adrichem chose Giethoorn
We love traveling, discovering new environments, close to home, but also further afield. The ability to be able to live for several years in Indonesia has given us the opportunity to discover a part of Asia, Australia and China but has also given us the chance to see Netherlands with a refreshing look. After several years of rice, heat and mountainous landscapes, the Dutch culture is refreshing in many ways. Giethoorn we see as a continuation of our journey. From life on the land, to live by the sea, to live on the water. Another dimension with different rules; what you lose is gone or at least very wet. Giethoorn, the Natural Park Weerribben-Wieden, is definitely a place which is worth to explore. A landscape where water and land varies always, where depending on the season you can hear the whisper of the reed.
What makes this House Boat unique
Shaping, decorating, new creation and design; for us daily business at our company in the form of Stand Art, but also in our way of life. We have several villas and gardens designed abroad our self, first to inhabit these villas and later adapted for rent out so that others can enjoy the paradise that North Bali has to offer. And now with our new project on Dutch soil own design is center again. In the nature of the Weerribben-Wieden near Giethoorn we have been given the opportunity to realize a own design of a houseboat. A design that despite its sleek form is one with nature due to its amount of glass. Surrounded by nature, overlooking nature and the reflection of nature in many glassware. The design has been paramount to this nature. Through a tight closed embankment, one enters a space surrounded by glass overlooking the nature reserve. A terrace on the water side with an unobstructed view of the Weerribben-Wieden is an ideal place to enjoy the peace, or at peak season the variety of boats that sail by. Symmetry and tranquility, luxury western features as total domotica, these were guidelines for the design of Water villa Intermezzo. Villa Intermezzo is designed to provide the environment to its full potential. Pride on the water with a direct connection to all lakes and canals. An oasis of tranquility and a paradise for those who love nature.

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
Dear Gaye, Thanks for your nice review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and that you have the luck to see the cows sail past by boat to another meadow.
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.
Fantastic. We loved everything. Great location.
Thanks for your review and so nice to hear you loved the place.
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.
Thanks for this great review. It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay.
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.
Dear Lynn, Thanks for your great review. We were very happy to have you and your family as our guests. It was lovely to see your pictures and movie of the house boat. Thanks a lot.
Modernes Hausboot mit tollem Ambiente
Wir haben uns trotz kleinerer Probleme mit der Haustechnik sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Architektur und die Innenaustattung sind excellent. Das Leben auf solch einem Hausboot in einer Graacht entschleunigt und beruhigt.
Wir sind uns bewusst, dass Inhouse-Technologie für einen Besuch in ein paar Tagen schwierig sein kann, aber wenn man sich daran gewöhnt hat, ist die Bedienung sehr einfach ........ :-).
Wir freuen uns zu hören, dass Sie die Ruhe und Natur genossen haben.
