Lovely apartment, nicely decorated and furnished.

5 of 5
The apartment is just what you need - a good size, well-equipped, cosy in the winter. The bikes are really handy. The area is lovely with a great baker nearby and a cheese shop at the end of the road. It's an easy walk or cycle into town. There's a good restaurant nearby too called Vandesande.

Great apartment right in the centre, close to everything.

4 of 5
We had a lovely stay, a shame we were only there for 2 nights to look at the university. The Apartment was great, right in the centre, within walking distance of virtually everything. A really good base. Comfortable beds and space. It was kind of Sabine and Martin to meet us and to provide the basics that helped as we arrived quite late. Just some advice book a restaurant for the evening as we didn't and we found it difficult to find somewhere on a Friday night.

Great property, exactly as described

5 of 5
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.
