An Essential & Indulgent Adventure

Let’s start here: this cabin rental in Rotterdam doesn’t have an address. How’s that for getting lost in nature?

The cabin sits on an idyllic little island on a lake in Rotterdam, and you’ll have to take a little boat to get there. This is one of the main reasons why Arno Schuurs and Paulien van Noort of design agency Qoncepts picked the spot.  

It all started with their hankering for something different. Tired of the banality of monotonous housing, the couple set sail on their very own housing adventure. Literally! They built a ship to live on—a perfect fusion of apartment, office, and holiday home—exploring their own country for a year before navigating it to Stockholm, where it was sold, but not before winning the Dutch Design Award in 2007 in the Best Consumer Design category. 

Refreshed from their year of adventure, the couple made landfall in a house they designed and built, and it was from there that they embarked on their project of developing small holiday homes in sublime, unusual locations surrounded by nature.

The duo live and breathe their designs, as is felt in their vacation rentals (click here to see the rest). They inject not just their keen eye and expertise,  but also their instinctive understanding of what it is to live well.

The cabin is the very picture of modern luxury: essential yet indulgent, perfectly plugged into its natural environment, and anything but ordinary.

Description

Like an oasis hidden within an urban world, but within reach of the best of the city, this cabin rental in Rotterdam is a bucolic escape that places you within a sublime private world of nature and cutting edge design.

One of several in a series of prefab homes from design agency Qoncepts, the cabin encompasses and incorporates many stylish and sustainable living concepts, with innovative design and construction techniques in harmony with nature.

Reachable only by boat, the cabin inhabits its own little island within one of the city’s many waterways. Transported to the site in pieces and installed at the location, the cabin puts the focus on both inside comforts and the natural landscape that surrounds it.

The lofty lounge area includes a warm, wood burning fireplace and windows  looking out over the water, with a large outdoor lounge area and terrace. The galley kitchen is sleek and fully equipped with an eat-in dining area and there are two double bedrooms and one bath with room for four (and your dog!).

Furnished with cozy textiles and custom-built furniture, draped in greenery and bathed in sunlight, you become an island all to yourself.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, kitchen and bath amenities, firewood. An electric boat is available to rent during your stay for €60 a day.

AROUND

Hillegersberg, the neighbourhood where the cabin is located is a charming small village from where Tram 4 takes you right into the city center with stops at Meent (for the street market on Tuesdays and Saturdays at Markthal or Industriegebouw), witte de Withstraat (for excellent coffee) or Wilhelminapier.

From there you can walk the Erasmusbridge towards Katendrecht above the river Maas and the old Hotel New York, and the original Chinatown and sailors quarters, where the SS Rotterdam steamship (now a hotel) is moored. Here you can take a watertaxi (a treat!) into the town center with stops at the old harbor town of Havenkwartier or het Park bij de Euromast.

From Havenkwartier you can walk towards het Park where you can find Parkiet (great for breakfast or lunch) and the beutiful Dudok in het Park. Here you also find Euromast (quite nice on a rainy day) and Amazing Oriental, a Chinese ship and supermarket. From the Park or Havenkwartier you can reach Museumpark and Kunsthal exposition park as well as Museum Boymans van Beuningen.

Then onwards to Witte de Withstraat, a historic street full of small restaurants and shops. It’s a big trek but cut it into pieces is worth it to see the best of the city.

Although largely wiped out in the war, Rotterdam rose from the ashes with a strength of purpose and innovative spirit, launching an exciting renaissance in urban design and modern innovation and architectural investment.

Defined  as much by it’s modern identity as its location close to the North sea and the home of Europe’s largest port, the city lies at the confluence of both legs of the Maas Rivers, with water delineating the layout, the culture, and the way the city hums along. From canals and river banks, to the bridges and lakes, Rotterdam is a contemporary capital that swims with the times while holding onto its seafaring past.

  • Simone, October 7, 2018

    What an amazing cabin and location! We had the best stay ever, enjoyed the tasteful, stylish and creative design, sipping coffee from Nespresso coffee maker, lounging at the bar or comfy hang out space and looking out onto the water. For evenings the inside wood fired oven invites for cozy nights and during warmer weather the one of a kind outdoor space is simply the best place to hang out and lounge. A pizza oven, huge and cool designed table with benches, lounge sofas and not to mention the hammock makes this a never want to leave place for the entire family. Kids loved the adventurous arrival with the pedal boat. We will for sure be back!
