MAGICAL three-story home next to Nieuwe Kerk (New Church) with spectacular views in Delft's charming historic city center. Enjoy access to cafes, restaurants, and shopping just steps away from your own fully-renovated "bovenhuis". Just a 10-minute walk to the Delft train station.

The space

This home is filled with light and charm - and is sure to make your visit to The Netherlands extra special! Step out the front door directly into the historic beauty of Delft to enjoy cafes, restaurants, and local sights. Or take a 10-minute walk along beautiful cobbled streets to the train station for a day trip to The Hague (10-minute ride) or to Amsterdam (1-hour ride). And always feel at home coming back to this three-story haven with sweeping rooftop views from the top floor - and entertaining panoramas of daily life in Delft from the first and second floors. Be sure to keep an eye out for the resident swans in the canal just outside, as well as the neighbor taking their pet pig out for a stroll.

Stocked with items to help you make yourself at home: coffee maker, microwave, toaster, iron, pots and pans, dishes, etc.

First Floor: Large guest bedroom with double size high quality futon bed mattress with wooden frame - with view of the Nieuwe Kerk (New Church); small room with single bed; large bathroom with shower.

We had a wonderfull break in Delft among others thanks to nice, comfy and cosy Janice's house. Ideally situated, very quiet and just big enough for all of five. We had everything we could need and may be more. Delft is a so nice town ! If I come back (hope so !) I won't hesitate one second to come back to Janice's house. Janice gave us plenty of informations, good adresses ... she's very reactive and nice. She has an adorable neighbour in charge to open house and give us help if we need. I wish I could stay longer !

Janice's place is very well placed for exploring the old town and main tourist attractions in Delft. We made good use of the kitchen and there are two v nice supermarkets within a couple of minutes walk. Overall a great base for exploring Delft.

Janice's apartment was in a fantastic location, and the presentation was excellent. The provisions of linen and everything else was above expectations. The beds were extremely comfortable and the appartment was very spacious. We loved the view from the main bedroom of the tower and the beautiful sounds of the bells was an absolute joy to listen to. I would highly recommend this place to everyone. Delft is a beautiful place, and we will return

Staying at Janice's place was a truly wonderful experience. Its unique location, inspiring views and cosiness made us feel like we were at home. There were enough different rooms and floors for everyone to have their privacy. Our children were staying at Delft's Technical University at daytime, which was a 10 minutes walk. We never used a car or bike when visiting the beautiful churches and the "Vermeer Centrum". There were plenty of possibilities to have lunch and dinner around and when walking home at night one could only feel lucky to enter the house like stepping into one of Vermeers paintings. Thank you Janice!
