About the property

Holiday home with 2 bedrooms + sleeping loft for 5 people with private dock

This typical house with private dock is located directly on the open water. It belongs to the group "Mushroom Houses', a concept since 1938 on the Kaag. The house has both a front and back yard and very private. The house was built recently while retaining the original character. Use has been made of natural materials and has provided an attractive and contemporary look and all the comforts.

It has a bathroom with double shower, 2 toilets, central heating, fireplace, large flat screen TV, well equipped kitchen, terraces and everywhere around doors to the garden. In the evenings one can enjoy the beautiful view to the outside stove. There is a bedroom with 3 box-spring beds, 1 room with 2 single beds and a sleeping loft with 2 to 3 beds. The house has a very spacious living room around the fireplace with wooden floor and large bank, both in the kitchen and outside dining tables are large.

It offers Kaaghuis celebrate both beautiful and less beautiful weather all possibilities cozy vacation. Because the house on an island gives a unique sense of freedom and oneness with nature. Stand up and take a dip is a fantastic start to the day. Then breakfast at the pier with all the boats sail past gives the feeling that time stands still for a moment and there is peace in a crowded existence. Simultaneously, the Kaag lies in the middle of the Randstad, with all his energy and activities. Both by boat and by car is everything a vacation needs to reach. Water sports can indulge themselves. The Kaagsociëteit is the vibrant heart of the (rekreatieve-) sailor and competitor. For a nice drink with food the whole family can go there, 10 minutes downriver.

In summer, the house is accessible by boat, in winter you need to walk for a distance of approximately 500m from the car park at the Nassau Avenue, Kaageiland.

The location of the house makes it unsuitable for the disabled.

Wij hebben met het gezin hier verbleven en een heerlijke tijd gehad. Het huis is gelegen op 1 van de mooiste plekjes aan de Kaag met prachtig uitzicht over het water.

Heerlijk huis met geweldig uitzicht!

  • 5 of 5

Ik heb met 6 vriendinnen al een paar keer dit huis gehuurd en we zijn iedere keer dik tevreden. Verzorgd en schoon huis, smaakvol en gezellig ingericht. Voldoende ruimte voor 7 personen om te slapen, goede bedden. Huis is van alle gemakken voorzien, in de keuken zijn alle faciliteiten aanwezig die je verwacht in een goed uitgeruste keuken. Ligging is super; op een eilandje (wel makkelijk bereikbaar) rustig en aan het water. Het uitzicht is prachtig.

Wij vinden het een fantastische plek om met vrienden weekendje weg te zijn: ontspannen en gezellig, lang tafelen en borrelen. In de winter bij de open haard, in de zomer met je voeten in het water op de steiger.

Contact met eigenaresse gaat erg soepel, zeer vriendelijk. Kortom: een aanrader!

Ein Traumhaus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist wunderschön!! Alles sehr stilvoll eingerichtet! Man möchte am liebsten direkt einziehen! Wir waren mit 4 Personen über Silvester da und waren ganz alleine! Die Aussicht ist traumhaft!

Das einzige was eventuell zu bemängeln ist, ist der entfernte Parklplatz vom Haus! Man muss also das gesamte Gepäck über eine Strecke von ca 300m tragen! Und leider ist der Weg nicht durchgängig gepflastert!

Ist man jedoch am Haus angekommen, ist dies schnell vergessen!

Das Haus ist komplett ausgestattet, so das es einem an nichts fehlt!

Diese Unterkunft merken wir uns auf jeden Fall und kommen gerne noch einmal wieder!

belle maison, mais déconseillée l'hiver

  • 3 of 5

Belle maison au bord de l'eau, très bien équipée, vaisselle importante et de qualité.

Malheureusement, en cette période de fin décembre, il fait souvent mauvais , la maison est située au bout, du bout, de l'île et la route s'arrête 300 mètres avant.

Il faut donc marcher constamment dans la terre et la boue pour faire les allers-retours à votre voiture (la voiture doit être laissée sur le parking à 300 m).

Nous n'avions pas été informés de cette situation, ni de l'équipement nécessaire (bottes).

Au bout de quelques jours, toujours sous le mauvais temps d'hiver, cela agace beaucoup et gâche le plaisir de ce petit coin très tranquille (nous étions les seuls). Nous avons fait du feu de cheminée et du cocooning.

Ellen, la propriétaire est charmante. Mais il faut avoir l'honneteté de décrire précisement la location et son environnement.

This cozy cottage is located on the island of Kaag, directly on the beautiful Kagerplassen with its vibrant life watersports: sailing, swimming, windsurfing, canoeing, waterskiing, fishing, too many to mention. With the boat are many nice places within cruising range as Leiden, Warmond Sassenheim, Keukenhof, Amsterdam and Haarlem. The boat is half an hour away yet to moor in the center of Leiden and there to go to all the museums, cinemas, shops and restaurants. De Kaag itself offers many opportunities to eat cozy waterfront and drink, all in the immediate vicinity of the house. From the moment you cross the ferry on the Buitenkaag (24 hour service) begins the holiday feeling. The car can be parked within walking distance of the house. The house has a private jetty for mooring the boat. A nice transport is the 'white bike available for the deposit of 2.00 euros at many places on the island. There are also several sailing schools on the Kaag both children and adults. Overall this place offers everything for young and old to get away from it all.
