I lived in this family-owned house myself while I was pursuing my graduate studies at Leiden university in Leiden (30 minutes from the house by train or car). I wrote my dissertation in the unique and inspiring atmosphere of this home. I loved to go run on the beach or in the woods, both a few minutes away from my doorstep. Or bike to any place in the Hague..
I hope you will enjoy it too! In the picture: me and my daughter in front of the house on a recent visit!
Louise Koopman purchased this cottage in 1992
Lovely Scheveningen beach is a 5 minute walk away. Grab your towel and go for a stroll or a dip in the sea (in the summer!), come home and enjoy the evening sun on the sun-filled terrace in this quiet neighborhood. Go running on the trails that run in the forest near the house, walk to the cozy Frederik Hendriklaan to go shopping, visit the famous Paagman bookstore, coffee shops, etc. Take a tram that stops right by the house and enjoy the short ride downtown to enjoy all that beautiful and historic The Hague has to offer, museums, shopping, theatre, music, dance, entertainment! A great place to be!
You will find total privacy in this house, private entrance, comfortable furnishing, a stylish spiral staircase takes you to a separate bedroom on the 2nd floor, where doors also open to the sunny terrace.
Nice little house with cozy interior and everything you need. We stayed there one week after Christmas. From the house to the beach of Scheveningen you need only 15 Minutes by foot; to the city center of The Hague you go by tram few stations only. Shopping facilities are also nearby. But be aware of the stairs to the upper sleeping area: these are very steep and narrow! Especially in the night when you need the toilet in the ground floor you better watch your steps … The bathroom doesn’t have any heating. So it’s use is really a challenge for wimps like me :-)

Especially in the night when you need the toilet in the ground floor you better watch your steps … The bathroom doesn’t have any heating. So the use in wintertime is really a challenge. The same with the kitchenette. Unfortunately the sliding doors to the kitchenette and the small entrance area weren’t really free moving so it was difficult to prevent the cold coming in. Therefore we give only 4 stars. But in any “warmer” season the location is absolutely recommendable!
I stayed in the property for a business trip. I was looking for something convenient to bring my 7 month old baby and my husband to be combining the stay with a short beach vacation. And it turned out that this property was perfect. Large enough for the three of us, very clean and homey.
Thank you very much!
Good value and location, especially for business travelers with work at or near HCPIL, Hague Tribunal, Peace Palace, and World Forum and leisure days with beach, parks, shopping within easy walking distance. Quiet area and clean property, well-furnished and stocked with books, magazines, brochures and maps and kitchen condiments including full range of spices, vingears, olive oils. Sprial staircase to BR would be a challenge for the elder or infirm. Bath(s) are small but adequate. Wilma is a gem if you need info or assistance. Bike tire was flat and one chair in the LR needed new legs, but owner promised to fix for the next visitor and I would tend to believe her. Two minute walk to Tram to launch trip to anywhere else. Go to Scheveningen for memorable dining at Simonis (for fresh seafood), Kurhaus Sunday Brunch, and Topkapi.
The Coach House is ideally situated in a quiet residential area with easy access to Scheveningen and The Hague via the No. 1 tram which is only 2 minutes walk from the house.
There are local shops less than 10 minutes walk and the centre of the Hague is only a 10 minute tram journey away. The two train stations in The Hague provide access to all of the Netherlands with Leiden, Amsterdam and Rotterdam less than an hour away and the No. 1 tram gives direct access to Delft. Public transport in the Netherlands is excellent value for money making travelling around the Netherlands cheap, don't forget to buy your OV Chipkaart as soon as you arrive as this will allow you to travel on the Trains, Buses and Trams across the Netherlands.
The Coach House would make an ideal base for holidays and anyone coming to work in The Hague for a short period of time as the house has everything you would need for a longer stay.
I just completed a week long stay in this sweet coach house in The Hague. I booked it so that I could stay in a home rather than a hotel while working nearby. The coach house came with a bicycle, too, which allowed me to exercise to/from my work. I got quite the attention from my Dutch colleagues as I rode up on the bike. I was told I was staying in The Hague, dutch-style.
Of course, should it rain or should you prefer not to ride a bike around, there is a tram literally 2 minutes from the front door. The tram takes you all the way to the train station, which was perfect when I needed to get to Amsterdam intl airport to return home.
Wilma, who looks after the house, met me right away and showed me through the house. Shortly before leaving, she told me that should I require immediate assistance with something urgent, to please not hesitate to reach out to her. Just knowing that I had that kind of support in case of emergency meant a LOT to me. Wilma is amazing.
As for the home, it was exactly what I was hoping for...a comfortable living space, private, with all the amenities one needs. An extra perk was the balcony where I could enjoy a glass of wine as the sun was setting - the colors in the sky were gorgeous.
A grocery store and a number of cafes/restaurants are within 10 minutes walk from the house. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking gear for people who like to cook - except for an oven, so be prepared!
The heater worked very well, too, which was what I needed on the days it rained.
Wonderful stay. I highly recommend this jewel for anyone wanting a quiet, private, home-like atmosphere during their holiday or work abroad.
Oh, and Louise was excellent in getting back to me right away whenever I emailed requesting information, etc.
