Loodsbotter Texelstroom
A special stay on this traditional fishing boat in Oudeschild

Spending the night on the Texelstroom pilot boat is a unique experience. The authentic character of the botter has been carefully preserved. There is a kitchen and a cozy sitting area with plenty of seating on board. This makes the ship very suitable for families, groups of friends or colleagues and offers a cozy intimacy during your overnight stay or sailing trip. There are several single berths on the ship where you can relax after an active day in the salty open air. The two-person skipper's residence is for couples who find each other particularly sweet. In the bow is the wet cell with a simple shower, sink and toilet.

Location

The historic pilot vessel Texelstroom from 1906 is located in the old harbor of Oudeschild. The village is home to the Texel fishing fleet and with its sturdy charm it exerts an irresistible appeal. The port is located on the Wadden Sea, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2009. The Wadden Sea is the largest tidal system in the world, so you have a different view every hour on board the Texelstroom.

Special about this accommodation

Museum Kaap Skil is a stone's throw from the harbor. It gives a nice insight into the glory of Oudeschild in the VOC era and the Rede van Texel. It also sheds new light on fishing, village life, and beachcombing, then and now. There are several (fish) restaurants on the harbor, the inner man certainly does not have to be short of anything. This is a ‘ZoTexels’ accommodation. 'ZoTexels' is a network of private accommodations where guests can savour the authentic flavour and hospitality of Texel.

Important to know

It is not allowed to smoke below decks. The ship is monumental, therefore not comparable to a holiday home, maintenance, use and rental is done by volunteers. Unfortunately, the ship is not suitable for people with walking difficulties. Life jackets for adults and children are provided. The ship is regularly checked by one of our volunteers, for example whether there is still enough water on board and whether the waste water tanks are not yet full. This happens in consultation with you at agreed times. It is also possible to rent the Texelstroom with skipper and crew for multi-day trips on the Wad or daily Wadden Sea trips.

Check in between:

16:00 hour - 18:00 hour

Voor herhaling vatbaar

Alles was schoon en goed in orde. Ruim voldoende borden, bekers, bestek etc. Handdoeken, beddengoed, theedoeken, vaatdoekjes, afwasborstel en -middel, alles is aanwezig. Vriendelijke ontvangst door een vrijwilliger van de stichting die tussendoor ook nog even kwam checken of alles nog in orde was. Erg bijzondere lokatie om te overnachten. Heerlijk wiegen en op het dek krabben vangen, zeemeeuwen kijken en af en toe een zeehond.

Dank je wel voor jullie fijne reactie en tips. We zullen er naar kijken. Mooi dat jullie genoten hebben van het verblijf op de Texelstroom.

Außergewöhnliche Unterkunft und ein wahres Abenteuer Kinder :-)!

Wir waren mit unseren Twins zum langen Vatertagswochenende zu Gast auf der „Texelstroom“ und fanden das Ambiente im Vergleich zu den bisherigen Unterkünften in unserer mittlerweile drei Jahrzehnte andauernden Texel-Historie (teils mehrfach im Jahr) wirklich spektakulär :-)! Das ehrenamtliche Team der „Texelstroom“ ist sehr zuvorkommend und auch in Sachen Kommunikation sowie Einweisung an Bord auch über alle Maßen zuverlässig, die Ausstattung des Schiffs lässt im Kern auch keine Wünsche offen und macht große Freude. Unsere Kinder (8 Jahre alt) waren völlig begeistert von ihren Schlafkojen, wir Eltern haben uns auch damit arrangieren können (waren die Menschen zur zeit des Schiffsbau um 1906 im Durchschnitt doch noch etwas kleiner) und es genossen, bei leichtem Wellengang und den Gezeiten im Hafen leicht in den Schlaf gewogen zu werden. Einziger, wenngleich wirklich gravierender Kritikpunkt ist die enge und etwas umständlich (vor allem für kleinere Kinder) zu bedienende Sanitäre Einrichtung, welche aber den positiven Gesamteindruck nicht wirklich schmälert. Preis/Leistung stimmen hier auch absolut, daher gibt es von uns vier auch 8 hochgestreckte Daumen für eine der für uns nun coolsten und ehrenamtlich betriebenen Unterkünfte auf Texel 👍!

was erg leuke belevenis

locatie is top. maar voor de het sanitair moet je wel heel slank zijn. En dit was ook geen rozengeur, de tanks stonken. bedden/ matrassen zijn oud en hebben kuilen en builen
