Such a treat to stay in such a peaceful, relaxing and beautiful spot. It was the perfect place to relax after taking a tour through Europe. Loved the countryside. Clean and comfortable. Hope to come back for an even longer stay.
Thank you Elizabeth, I am glad you had a nice stay with us. You are always welcome in the future.
Great property, exactly as described
Property was clean comfortable & modern. Located in a good area for cycling - easy reach of Delft and Rotterdam. Owner helpful and friendly. Nearby Schipluiden has an Albert Heijn supermarket and the Indigo cafe was pleasant.
We spent 1 week at the house and and everything was as expected. The house is clean, well organized and has everything you need.
The area is very quiet and beautiful.
The house is located in the center of the region, giving you the possibility to visit many cities around (Kinderdjik, Gouda, Delft, Rotterdam, The Hague,...) .
There are grocery stores nearby.

Light, bright and very clean
We had a really lovely holiday. The cottage was really lovely and ideal for us. The area around the cottage is beautiful. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay though could have done with a toaster !!! We didn't like The Hague (Den Hag) at all, though Delft is a must, a really beautiful town. Overall we would recommend this cottage, it really is lovely, one of the best we have stayed in.
Thank you very much for your review!
The toaster will be present soon!
A rural stay close to the cities
My sister and I recently returned to Canada from a 2 week stay in Maasland at Aan de Kwakel's. A beautiful location in rural Netherlands surrounded by nature yet a short drive to well-known city centres. The accommodations were clean. Nice to have access to bicycles and fresh eggs every day. Highly recommended if you are looking for reasonably priced accommodations that are self-contained with no surprise fees. The only items to be aware of is that check-in is at 3pm so if you are coming into Schiphol Airport from overseas and landing early in the morning you might want to stay in Amsterdam to pass the time away as there isn't really anywhere to 'hang out' in Maasland. Also, the internet is shut down overnight. Overall an excellent place to hang your hat!
Other Activities: Farmer Golf Golf: There are two golf courses nearby including golf Delfland. This is the first golf course in the Netherlands where you can play golf according to the pay and play principle. Therefore without membership, only the CFP is required.
