About the property

Large lounge, kitch-dine, 3 bedrooms, patio, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 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 a lovely relaxed town

  • 5 of 5

House was fantastic and owners very helpful. Easily accomodated our party of seven. Delft a perfect place to explore the region from as very well connected. Delft itself incredibly relaxed and felt very safe. Mostly traffic free and our teenagers loved wandering around on their own. Lots to see and do. Would come back

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed staying in Ferdinand and Linsday's lovely renovated house above the candy shop. The house is well appointed, gets lots of light, has plenty of space, and oozes charm. We will definitely stay at this house when we return to Delft!

Right in the heart of Delft. Pros: location, good amount of space, plenty of Dutch charm. Easy check in and out. Cons: parking not convenient unless you're willing to pay a hefty price at the Phoenix garage; you're expected to supply your own toilet paper and the market is quite a hike-- not a fun surprise!

Just great - don't hesitate!

  • 5 of 5

We thouroughly enjoyed our stay in this house and absolutely recommend it. We were six adults for 4 nights and it fitted the bill; we would have happily stayed longer.

It's very well situated for exploring Delft; you feel fully immersed in the life of the town. We spent part of our stay living in the house as if it were our own - preparing meals, chilling out, having friends round - and, well, we just felt right at home. The equipment is good, there's plenty of space and it's comfortable. Frankly, it's very good value for money.

You have to be agile at climbing stairs, as like in many older Dutch townhouses there are lots and they're steep. All was OK for us. Just hold on to the hand rails!

Everyone slept well, there's no need to worry about the chiming of the church bells, which are in any case toned down and charmingly melodic. For the sleeping arrangements; there's one double bedroom and another room containing two individual beds on the top floor; (the kitchen/living room is on the second floor, as are the main bathroom and separate toilet); and on the first floor, there's one sofa bed in the lounge and one double bed in an alcove at the back of the house. The alcove wasn't very warm (in November) but those who slept there liked it that way.

Lindsay and Ferdinand were very helpful, both in organising our stay and arrival - very efficiently - as in helping out with the few questions we had once in Delft.

We'd go again - so that sums it up, really.

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.

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.
