Overview

Hof van 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.

Great house in the middle of beautiful Delft!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Delft and this was a perfect house from which to explore it. We were lucky enough to see the floating carnival and visit Den Hage for the International Fireworks competition whilst we were there. The house was very comfortable, well equipped and central, so that we could walk everywhere. We would definitely return to this beautiful and interesting city!

Fantastic !!!

  • 5 of 5

For 12 days we marveled at the great choice we had made, where it came to the house. Not only were booths set up twice a week right outside our front door, for the antique market, they also welcomed the new students in OUR street: a dozen decorated boats floated through the canal right in front of us, with different student groups and organizations trying to recruit the new students, who were seated on tables on both side of the canal !!!.

There was plenty of room in the house for the 6 of us: 3 generations, including 2 children of 10 and 12.

If it wasn't for the modern conveniences, you could imagine how Johannes Vermeer used to live.

I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Super location and service from the owner

  • 4 of 5

The location could not be better for staying in Delft. The main square is but steps away and you look directly down upon one of the many canals. The kitchen was very functional for a cook (which I am) and the dining room space became our favorite place to hang out. The directions and instructions provided by Ferdinand were very detailed as well as helpful. The master bedroom was nice with a very comfortable bed and it was good to have a WC on that level. So why only 4 stars and not 5? Two reasons. First, you must pay a cleaning fee and I have no problem with that, but frankly we did not feel that the cleaning service did a very good job before we arrived. Nothing terrible, but things were a bit dusty. More importantly, for us -- two active couples in their 60's and 70's -- the sleeping arrangements were not ideal. The first level bedroom is more of an alcove and is really only suitable for children as there is no WC on that level. That left the two top floor bedrooms and whilst the master bedroom was fine, the second bedroom was barely adequate. In particular there were two different single beds crammed in the room which meant that one couple had to sleep separately. And the mattress on one of the beds had so be supplanted with the one from the lower bedroom in order to make it comfortable. In the end, it all worked out and we very much enjoyed our stay. However, I might suggest that the host re-fit that 2nd bedroom with one double bed in order to be more accommodating for 2 couples.

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Echoing earlier reviews, we found Ferdinand's apartment to be amazing. The location could not be better, right on a canal, in the center of historic Delft, and convenient to the train station as well as shopping, churches, museums. Ferdinand was great to deal with throughout the entire rental process, provided us helpful tourist information, and answered all our questions. Yes, the steps are steep, but we're retirees and had no problem with them. The loft bedroom was comfortable and the half-bath (toilet) on that floor was very convenient. The kitchen/dining area was especially inviting, and we had a couple of dinners with friends sitting at the warm and comfortable dining room table.

One caveat for light sleepers or jet-lagged travelers staying in central Delft: the bell tower rings the hour throughout the night. But Delft is so charming it's worth getting used to, and I can't imagine any better place to stay in Delft than Ferdinand's apartment.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed her for a pre-Christmas break and it was great: warm, welcoming and well-equipped. There is lots a space spread over three floors and views over he canal and the towers of both of Delft's medieval churches. Ferdinand is a notably excellent host. The kitchen is big enough for you to prepare full meals if you want and there is a good supermarket a few moments away, a prizewinning bakery close by and a fishmonger just across the canal. There are dozens of restaurants if you don't want to cook. For visiting Delft it is perfect - everything is within an easy walk, as is the tram stop for the Hague and the railway station for wider trips. The direct train to Schipol takes 39 minutes so it is easy to get here from almost anywhere in the world.

Charming

  • 5 of 5

We wish we could have stayed for longer than the ten days! So convenient, charming and comfortable. Terrific views, lots of dining options, and close to everything you need. We loved this sweet little place, the stairs were no problem and added to the quaintness (we are all over fifteen) the washer and dryer were so handy! We liked to sit and watch the bustling streets and all the bikes! Thank you, we hope we can come back one day! -Wendi

The city center retains a large number of monumental buildings, whereas in many streets there are canals of which the borders are connected by typical bridges,[1] altogether making this city a notable tourist destination.

The adress is Hippolytusbuurt 15, Delft

I can't read the email via this website.

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

The house on the outside looks like this: We are above the Candy shop.
