Centrally located, this typical 1930s Dutch apartment is the perfect place for a cultural and relaxing vacation or business trip.

Situated in the middle of the Netherlands' large cities, this house is also the perfect place to stay if you plan on visiting Amsterdam, Rotterdam or The Hague, all within 15-30 minutes by train or car. Biking distance from the beach.

My apartment is on the 2nd and 3rd floor of a totally renovated house in typical 1930s style. The apartment has beautiful stain glass adorned, large windows and a lot of light. There is a living room with en-suite dining room and modern kitchen, as well as a toilet and large and sunny balcony (perfect for lounging, breakfast and an afternoon drink!) on the 2nd floor.

A traditional warm bakery is across the street, where you can buy hot breakfast rolls, freshly squeezed orange juice, a variety of fresh sandwiches as well as snacks and drinks.

A lovely(!) apartment in a very nice neighborhood. Flora is wonderful. You do need a bike when you stay there because the apartment is about ~20 minute walk to 'downtown' Leiden, and 15 minute walk to the train station, with a bike it is easy and quick (5-10 minutes to pretty much anywhere in Leiden).

I was in Leiden for 10 days in May for work, and I could not have found a better place to stay. The home is spacious, peaceful, clean and beautifully decorated, with a well-equipped kitchen, a pretty balcony seating area, a very comfortable bed and an ideal location near the city center on a quiet street. Flora is a wonderful, communicative host who makes an extra effort to ensure her guests feel welcome and leave happy.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Fleur's house. The living space is a beautiful bright and airy space and even in the cold weather the balcony was great for breakfast. The house was well furnished to make our stay very comfortable. The house is located on a lovely dutch street with a great neighborhood bakery. On arrival Fleur provided some great recommendations of bars and restaurants in the lovely town of Leiden. I would have no hesitation in recommending Fleur's house for your stay in Leiden.

Excellent accommodation- the space is good, the balcony is (when good weather) great. Good distance from the city center and very peaceful and quiet area which allows you to get a good rest. All you need is in the house with the exception of a hair dryer (which she promised will definately provide from now on !) and the TV I could not work to hear the news ! for the rest PERFECT.

Fleur's appartement is great, clean, spacious and bright. We had a wonderful time (my girlfriend and i, and an other couple of friends). Leiden is also a great place and we had an amazing weather there : we enjoy a lot the terasse just to rest and eat in the middle of the day or drink a glass of wine for the aperitif ! Thanks to Fleur to rent this place. We defintively want to come back ! Nicky

Lovely apartment, spacious, bright, airy and spotlessly clean. A wonderful mattress too! We stayed for almost a week and found it completely perfectly equipped for cooking, and also for having friends over for dinner :) Also a bonus for us was the free parking just outside the door. It is easy to get to the old town with a bike, and the location was very convenient for the university which we were visiting. Fleur was very helpful with everything we needed.

We decided on staying in Leiden for the first 3 days of our vacation and use the public transit to get around to various different cities. It was a perfect location and it was nice to come home to every night. We really enjoyed staying in a typical neighbourhood where we could feel like a visitor as appose to being a tourist. Fleur was the perfect host who even started to come to the train station because we were taking too long to get to the was nice to see her friendly face coming to greet us.

Dear fellow Airbnb´ers!
Welcome to my listings. I live in Leiden, one of the oldest and most picturesque cities of the Netherlands. I love socializing and I have a particular interest in other cultures and travelling. I´m a native of the Netherlands and have had the privilige of living abroad multiple times. I particularly love the San Francisco, Bay Area.
If you are looking for a comfortable, relaxing and typical Dutch place to stay near the old city center you have come to the right place. This is the house I live in and I'm loving it!
I look forward to welcoming you in Leiden!
