About this listing
Our accommodation is situated on the ground level of our house in the city center. It has its own entrance, living and sleeping area, private bathroom. We offer great locally sourced breakfast and home baked bread. There is free Wi-fi and parking.
There is a microwave which can be also used for cooking, a cooler, a coffee plunger, a kettle, cups and plates; everything you need to make a nice a cup of coffee or tea or warm up some food.
We are literally five minutes from the very center of Delft, our house is situated by one of the many beautiful canals in Delft.
We offer free Wi-fi and free parking in the street with a special visitors card which we provide - please, let us know you coming by car. It is not uncommon that Dutch people put their chairs outside on the street on a sunny day and you are more than welcome to use our bench in front of the house.
The accommodation is completely private as it is situated on the ground floor, with private entrance and shower. We live above the accommodation and really love this wonderful compromise of hosting people in our house and yet providing total privacy.
Interaction with Guests
We always welcome our guests personally and quite often meet them at the train station. We interact with our guests daily when serving breakfast and we are always available to give direction or tips and have a chat through the day. Stef was born and raised in Delft and knows the city through and through so he can give you lots of advise and interesting tips. We speak Dutch, Czech, English, German, Spanish and French between the two of us.
We live in the city center, about five minutes from all the major tourist places, yet, our neighborhood is super quiet and peaceful. We live about 100 meter from the famous Oostport (East gate) which is a last standing tower which used to be part of the city walls build around the 1400.
There is no need to use any public transport to discover Delft unless, of course, you want to hop on one of the canal boats and enjoy the views from the water :-) Delft is well connected to all the major cities like Utrecht, Rotterdam, den Hague and Amsterdam and all the trains to these destinations run 24 hours so you can even enjoy the night out in Amsterdam and still make it back to Delft :-) There is also a tram connection to den Hague and you can go all the way by this tram to the famous beach in Scheveningen.
Other Things to Note
We have a green policy at place in our accommodation which means that not only all the cleaning products and detergents are eco-friendly but also that we recycle and encourage our guests to do so by providing bin for recycling, we compost green waste, all the food served at breakfast is locally sourced, organic and mostly home-made (we bake bread every morning, I make jams and bake granola), our the teas and coffee which is available for the guest's use is also organic.
We also would like to mention that we have a cat called Truffle which does not have an access into the accommodation but we would like people who have a cat allergy be aware that there is a cat in the house.
We just would like to ask people to treat our place with respect.
