We stayed for a week in this charming houseboat and really enjoyed the experience of staying somewhere ‘different’. The houseboat is surprisingly spacious with a good sized and well furnished living and dining room with a well equipped kitchen across the back. Jacqueline provides a very generous ‘big Dutch breakfast’ and there are pantry staples in the cupboards. There’s a functional washing machine in the bathroom which also has a roomy shower. It was fun watching the ducks swim by and people cycling to and from work.

Leiden is a lovely town – great for walking around and an excellent twice-weekly market. It’s a perfect central point for touring and Jacqueline provides lots of tourist information. There’s free wifi in the boat and a good selection of TV channels together with some English DVDs and books. We certainly recommend the houseboat if you’re looking for a great experience combined with comfort and convenience.

“Lovely Time in Leiden”

We spent three nights at the 'Pride of Leyden' house boat in early May. Everything was just as described and we were very comfortable in this unique accomodation. Special moments included watching the cyclists pedal by on their way to work or school as we sat on the veranda with a morning coffee. The kitchen was well stocked with breakfast supplies as well as staple foods that might be needed to prepare almost anything you could think of. We appreciated the fruit and stroopwaffles when we arrived. There were very helpful suggestions and directions available to help plan holiday activities as well as books and dvds for those rainy evenings when you might just want to relax inside. Jacqueline, the owner, greeted us when we arrived and was available by phone for any concerns or problems. Thanks for a wonderful stay! We will certainly recommend this place to our friends.

Leiden is a very nice city and just a quick train ride to Haarlem, The Hague and Delft, and some 30 minutes ride to Utrecht, Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The houseboat was really a fun experience, very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The fridge and pantry were stocked with food and there is a great market in town, not to be missed. It was very quiet and we slept well. In the morning we would open the kitchen window and feed the ducks. A great experience.

Thank you for your kind comments. I’m always happy when people enjoy the beautiful Pride of Leyden as much as I do. That is why I cater especially to tourists from abroad, for whom this is a totally new experience. I hope you liked the stroopwafels, chocolade hagelslag and Senseo coffee machine.
