BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED 16TH CENTURY TOWNHOUSE IN CENTRAL DELFT LOCATION

Delft House Rental Photos and Description

On 3 storeys: large lounge, kitch-dine, 3 bedrms, patio, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6-8

Located in the midst of one of the Netherlands oldest towns, this property is walking distance from 94 restaurants, beautiful Dutch countryside (ideal for cycling trips), and just a tram ride from the The Hague and the beach at Scheveningen.

This is a listed building in one of the most beautiful streets in central Delft. With own entrance, the house sits above a candy shop on the first floor with a spacious living room and bedroom at the rear. On the four floors above, the house enjoys morning sun in the kitchen and afternoon sun on the balcony. There is plenty of storage and the whole house is 135m2 (1450 ft2). It is fully furnished with full mod cons including wifi.

The street is pedestrianized but allows for baggage drop off and pick up by car. There are plenty of secure garages for parking nearby.

Local support: The owners live in the area and are happy to respond to questions or queries about the house or local area. My husband, particularly, has lots of knowledge of the local area and is happy to share.

Additional cleaning services available on request for long stays.

Rates: Please contact us direct for a price calculation table as rates vary with number of guests and times of stay.

Beautiful house, beautiful town.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the townhouse for a week in August: 2 adults and 3 kids (aged 11, 9 and 6). The owner, Ferdinand, told us that he used to live in the house, and you could tell - it felt like a home, not like holiday accommodation. There was plenty of space, and each room was well-equipped. The free wifi was much appreciated; as were the guide books and tourist leaflets left in the house.

The location is superb; walking distance from everything in Delft including the station. By chance our stay coincided with 'OWee', the Freshers' Week for new students at the university, which meant plenty of free entertainment right outside the window. The centre of Delft is beautiful, full of historic buildings, buzzing cafes, independent shops and of course canals.

We came without our car and used the excellent Dutch public transport to get around: it's worth researching the 'OV chipkaart' in advance if you plan to use this as you pay a surcharge to use paper tickets. We spent a day in Amsterdam, a day in Rotterdam, a day at the beach (Scheveningen) and in Den Haag. We could have done more day trips but preferred to enjoy Delft at a leisurely pace: there's loads to see. The Science Centre in Delft was a particular hit with our kids - we were there for 3 hours and wished we had longer.

Ferdinand was extremely helpful and quick to respond to emails. He is very proud of his lovely house - with good reason. Highly recommended.

A spectacular place to visit!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay in Delft for two weeks. We were a family of 4 traveling to Holland for a heritage tour and couldn't have had better accommodations, amenities or a better landlord. The description of the home is perfect but you get so much more. The people in Delft were the friendliest people and safety was definitely not a concern. Ferdinand, the owner made our stay even more comfortable by stopping by to make sure we had everything we needed or answer any questions we might have had which was very appreciated as it was our first time in Delft. Traveling to and from areas around Delft was very easy and cost effective either by train or tram. However, we spent a good part of our vacation just tooling around Delft and getting to know the area better so when we come back to stay here we'll already have our bearings.

A spectacular home, a spectacular owner, a spectacular place to visit!

Beautiful home in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5
We were absolutely delighted with our stay in the townhouse. We were six adults and there was plenty of space. The location is superb, right along the canal and with a great view of the nieuwe kerk. We were in Deft during the coronation of the new king, so there was always a lot of activity, and being right in the heart of Deft made our stay most enjoyable. The house is exactly as it is described. It has been beautify renovated yet has maintained the charm of a house of its era. Ferdinand was really helpful with his many tips on things to see and do, and made us feel really welcome. Holland has become one of our favourite places to visit and we will surely stay in Delft again when we return. There is a lot to see and do in oude Delft - the markets, the Delft Blue factory, climbing to the top of the nieuwe kerk and just walking around. If beaches are your thing, you are minutes away from the tram that will take you to Scheveningen - an absolute 'must see'. Many thanks to Ferdinand for helping to make our stay in Delft truly incredibly - we will be back.

Awesome location, great apartment!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic visit in Delft. Thank you, Ferdinand for sharing your beautiful apartment with us. Our visit to Delft couldn't have been better (except for the April weather).

The apartment is located in the center of Delft (which is an all pedestrian area). We traveled with 4 small children and were very comfortable in the apartment and walking around town. Easy accessibility to everything including literally hundreds of restaurants.

Parking is 7 euro a day about 800m away.

I highly recommend this apartment for anyone looking to visit Delft. We will be back!

10 night stay - no problems

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4, had a nice stay here. The listing is accurate - and we found it to be clean and well maintained. We would easily recommend this to other travelers to Delft, including families. (Our kids are 7 months old, and 3.5 years old)

More thoughts:
1) The stairs within the house are steep, so we reminded our 3.5 year old to use the hand-rail each time. She didn't have problems.
2) The location simply couldn't be better. You step out of the house and can be in the central market place (with new church) in 3 minutes walk. The grocery store is across the canal and also very close (maybe 5 minutes walk). The old church is nearby also - you can see the tower from the second upstairs bedroom.
3) You can hear church bells from the property, but we liked that and it didn't bother us.
4) The kitchen is well equipped, with a few handy things left behind by other travelers (cooking oil, salt, pepper) which is nice because buying those things for a short stay isn't that much fun.
5) They provided plenty of towels, and we just used the washer and dryer if we wanted to clean them. But there were so many towels, doing laundry isn't necessary. [Be sure to get a lesson on the washer/dryer, and dish washer during check-in, as they aren't super intuitive to use until you know how.]
6) Be sure to read the travel info they provide (on the shelves in the kitchen) it has some good restaurant and travel tips. And visit the Delft Wood (I forget if that is the proper name for it), we just walked over there and really loved it! It felt like we were in the country side, but it was only a 20 minute walk from the house if I remember correctly.
7) Our double wide stroller didn't fit in the entrance hall, we folded it up each time. Shouldn't be a problem with normal sized strollers though.
8) Ferdinand was very helpful, both in the booking process and once we were there. He was especially thoughtful of our kids, bringing by an extra highchair/desk - and when he dropped off light-bulbs he included a coloring book for our 3.5 year old. She loved it!

So if you ask me, you should stop reading about this place - and book your stay! You'll be glad you did. Enjoy Delft and enjoy this townhouse. :)

A fantastic place to stay for a family

  • 5 of 5
We were a family of 5 - 2 adults, 3 kids - and we had a great week in Delft. The house was beautiful and well equipped. it was great weather and we appreciated the air conditioning in the top bedrooms as well as the patio. Delft is a beautiful place and we found great places to eat as well as buying delicious things in the market to enjoy back at the house. It is a good base to visit the Hague and the beach although the tram is expensive and we found places to canoe and enjoy the countryside. The kids loved the house, especially being above a sweet shop. The room on the first floor was very private which worked well for our nearly teenage daughter although needs to work for someone who can go to the next floor for bathroom. It took us only 3 hours to drive from Calais. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: We are very happy you liked the house. Delft has lots of things to do and The Hague is really close by and so are Amsterdam and Rotterdam. (the Netherlands are very small).

And yes, everyone likes the candy shop. Also the owner is a super chap.

Delft is well known for the Delft pottery ceramic products[2] which were styled on the imported Chinese porcelain of the 17th century. The city had an early start in this area since it was a home port of the Dutch East India Company.

The painter Johannes Vermeer (1632–1675) was born in Delft. Vermeer used Delft streets and home interiors as the subject or background of his paintings.

Other Activities: Delft has eight museums and an university arboretum.

East of Delft is the Delftse Hout ('Delft Wood'), a recreation area, with apart from a forest, through which bike-, horseride- and footpaths are leading, also a lake (suitable for swimming and windsurfing), narrow beaches, restaurant, community gardens, campground and other recreational and sports facilities.

Golf: There are two golf courses close by. Google 'golf Delft' for details.

Ski: Indoor ski in Zoetermeer. A town 20 minutes away by car
