The Space

In a family house nearby the center of Leiden, I offer up to 2 comfortable and bright 2 person bedrooms for up to 4 guests.

The house has 3 floors; your private room is on the third floor. The room is bright and spacious and has one queen size bed, a desk and a wardrobe. Bath- and bed linen is included.

There is a second room for up to 2 more people in your party. It is the green room in the pictures. Also this room has comfortable bed, a desk and a wardrobe.

The bathroom on the second floor and the extra toilet on the first/ground floor are to be shared with the host (me, 1 person).

Guest Access

Apart from your room and the shared bathroom, you'll have free use of the entire kitchen, including all appliances, and the stuff you need to make yourself a nice dinner, like oil, salt, spices, rosemary from the garden, as well of the living areas on the ground floor. And of course of the garden and BBQ (weather permitting).

Upon arrival, you'll get the access codes for the free high-speed WiFi. The top room also has cabled internet, which reaches speeds up to 150 mbit/s.

Interaction with Guests

I live in the house and I love to chat with the guests and hear your stories.

You'll certainly see me when I show you around in the house upon arrival, but after that it's mostly up to you. You can hide away in your room all evening or sit in front of the fireplace in the living room.

On weekdays (and some weekends) I work in the academic hospital of Leiden, so during the day I'll be away.

The Neighborhood

The house is located in a very quiet street. There's no through-traffic here, just the neighbors. Nice and relaxed.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner are not standard included in your stay, but there are two small supermarkets as well as a bakery, a pizzeria, a shop specialized in cheeses, an authentic fish stand and a Greek trattoria within 2 minutes walking distance of the house. Plus a butcher, just a little further down the road.

Getting Around

Since you are in the Netherlands, it's only natural that bikes can be arranged. You can borrow two of mine, and if you come with your own bike(s), we can 'park' them in the shed in the garden at night. That way they are safe and dry.

In case you arrive by car, you can park free of charge, right in front of the house. The house is just far enough outside the old part of the city center, so parking is very easy.

And should you decide on public transportation in stead: there is a bus-stop 2 minutes walking away, which brings you straight to the Central Train Station of Leiden within about 5 minutes.

The house is situated:
-5 min by bike or bus from Leiden Central Station
-10 min by bike or bus from the city center
-20 min walk to the city/train station
-2 min walk from 2 supermarkets

From Leiden Central Station you can reach:
-Schiphol Airport in 15 min (by train)
-Amsterdam in 30 min (by train)
-Den Haag in 15 min (by train)
-Rotterdam in 30 min (by train)
-Keukenhof in 25 min (by bus)
-the beach in 20 min (by bike or bus)

Other Things to Note

We have one super-sweet indoor cat; a European shorthair called Aip. He used to have 2 companions (2 Sacred Birmans), but they recently immigrated to the US. I usually keep Aip out of the top room, but if you want to let him in, that's totally up to you. However, no cats are allowed in the green room; that one is officially cat(hair) free :)

House Rules

Be nice and clean and friendly with the cat and you are going to have a perfect stay.

Also, smoking isn't allowed anywhere in the house, also not while 'leaning out of a window". But don't worry, we have a big garden, so if you really need to, there's ample space outside.
