Description from owner

Description

Houseboat Pride of Leyden is fully equipped with every comfort, from a well stocked kitchen, to central heating and air conditioning, a TV and Wifi internet, and a veranda with a spectacular view. The main bedroom sleeps two in a king-size bed, the study sleeps one on a sofa bed.

The houseboat is moored in the Nieuwe Rijn, on the edge of Leiden's centre. It is a very picturesque part of Leiden, with a view of a drawbridge, period style street lamps and typical Dutch style houses. A short walk takes you to one of Holland's largest shopping areas. And just around the corner are a restaurant and a supermarket. There is good parking (on street, paid from 2 January 2016) and you're only 5 minutes away from the motorway. Leiden train station is on both the intercity network and the night train network, so trains run frequently and throughout the night.

The Pride of Leyden is situated in the historic town of Leiden, which is, among other things:

* the departure point of the Pilgrim Fathers

* Rembrandt's place of birth

* home of the Netherlands' oldest university

* the town with the most museums per capita in the Netherlands

* centrally located, with Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht, the bulb fields and the sea side only a short train journey or car trip away.

Please note that the minimum stay is three nights.

Getting around

Leiden is a very compact town, that can easily be explored on foot. That said, there are six different bus lines that run from Pride of Leyden through the centre to the railway station. Bicycles can be rented from several shops in town and a car rental is just around the corner. All major cities are easily accessible from Leiden, e.g. Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Utrecht are each approx. 40 minutes away by train, The Hague is a mere 20 minutes away. And the A4 motorway is only a 5 minute drive from the boat.

Interaction with guest

Please let me know how you will be travelling to Leiden (e.g. by train or car) and I will send you the appropriate directions. If you phone me 10 minutes ahead of arrival, I will meet you at the boat to hand over the keys and show you around. If possible I will pick you up from the railway station. However, since I drive a van I have room for only two passengers. There is a Welcome Book with a host of suggestions and things worth knowing. But whenever you need something or have a question, you can phone or email me. I am only 5 minutes away.
