High above the harbour entrance of IJmuiden, on the dune of the lighthouse, you can find a unique 1-room hotel with an astonishing view over the sea, beach and piers: the Seinpoststelling.
For decades, the signal station made sure that ships could safely navigate to the harbour and locks of IJmuiden, the entrance of Amsterdam’s harbour. After years of loyal service, the signal station became redundant.
A second life started! The signal station now offers you a unique possibility to stay the night; an experience you will think back on for a long time. All the stress from your busy life will fall off your shoulders once you enter the station and you will surround yourself in an oasis of peace, romance and serenity. Have a seat and enjoy the passing fishing boats and cargo ships and the bustle of the harbour entrance in combination with the pure beauty of nature, the dune, the beach, the marina and the sea with its infinite vista. Take in the sunset at night and later a magnificent display of heaving lights on the water.
The signal post is a 1-room hotel of 40 square metres and consists of the following spaces: living room with open kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, toilet. It also includes a 2-person hammock, TV, radio, air conditioning and a spacious balcony.
