PolarStern - unique boatstay!

Ah! Welcome on board! This is your captain speaking .. It's my pleasure to show you the most unique stay you'll probably ever find on Micazu in The Netherlands. This unique lifeboat has such a great story behind. Once, this boat was being a hero on a very special ship called Polarstern with its homebase of Bremerhaven - Germany. The Polarstern, which is still active and running, is doing research at the polar circle in Antarctica. They do something awesome for the science nowadays. One of the most valuable studies they do is all about the research of the melting ice level which is increasing every single year. This boat had the really important
function to help all the crew to evacuate in case of emergency, luckily it never went that far. But they also took this boat into the ice floes when the research vessel couldn't get that far. It took a long time for this little beauty to end up in The Netherlands, but it finally arrived at its last destination: (idyllic) Monnickendam. We
love the story behind this orange monster, so we decided to create something special. We completely renovated the entire boat to make it a unique place to sleep and relax. And here it is! Our guests really loved it and higly recommend this place to others. We hope you love this as much as we do! But i'm sure, you won't be disappointed.

The boat:

If you love a cozy, nice and lovely place to stay: this is it! Rare to
find and unique in its sort. It has a really comfy double bed, a three
seat sitting area with a foldable table to sit down and relax, free WIFI
and a satellite TV with a wide variety of national and international
channels. With the installed Chromecast you are able to watch any film or
series you like right from phone, tablet or laptop! Pretty much
everything you need. Also, there's a fridge on board to keep your stuff
cool at any time, different kids of snacks and drinks and don't forget
some board games to spend the late evening hours. On top of that there's a
coffee machine to make yourself an early morning coffee or tea. We
provide you free coffee and tea as a gift, to thank you for choosing our
stay! There is no bathroom facility on the boat itselves, but on walking
distance (less then a minute) there's a big bathroom facility which
offers free hot / cold showers and toilets. And believe me, they're clean
and comfy! Nothing to lie or worry about.

Location & tips

Additional information

Location of the boat:
The boat is located in the marina harbor or Monnickendam. A peacefull place which looks more like a campsite than a yacht harbor. It has all the facilities you need. There's a big stroke of grass right in front of the boat with BBQs, lounge seats, a chill area, table tennis and even a kids playground. This marina is right on top of cleaning which you can see in the bathroom facility for example. There's no nois whatsoever. If you fancy a cool place right next to the water, or better say on the water, this is the place to be. Do you love fishing and watersports? Please don't look any further. You'll be satisfied enough, really.

Transport Location in general:
Monnickendam is really close to Amsterdam and public transport in the Netherlands are great. You can easily reach Amsterdam by bus, which is cheap and the best way to take you there. It takes up to 10 minutes only. The bus stop is located right in front of the marina park. Probably Zaanse Schans is also on your bucket list. From Amsterdam you can also easily reach this by train. Monnickendam itselves is already a must see and definitely worth a visit. It offers some really good restaurants, great pubs and a lovely atmosphere. Idyllic is the best way to describe this village. Rather explore the area by bicycle? You can borrow a bike for free! Too easy! The greatest thing about the marina park, might be the fantastic location right in between all the touristic hotspots. If you take the bus to the left, you'll get to Amsterdam. But if you go right, there's also a must see: Volendam. Famous about the history of fishing. This fishers village, full of fishing boats, restaurants and bars is a one to miss out on. Have a look on the internet for Monnickendam and Volendam, and you'll find out yourself.
