In general the host or a family member will be at home to receive guests, and be available to provide specific information on getting around Rotterdam and the Netherlands.

The neighborhood is in the center of Rotterdam's renowned mix of old and modern, urban and green, peaceful and working harbor neighborhoods. It breathes a peaceful but lively multicultural and multi-architectural atmosphere. Just a few steps away, historical Delfshaven offers the experience of Holland in the 17th-century; with old sailing-vessels in the canals and step-gabled houses at the quays. An authentic wind-mill “The
Distilleerketel”; grinds high quality grains and selling a wide variation of flours per kilogram on the spot.
Bustling shopping streets, including the well-known Nieuwebinnenweg, offer small shops and supermarkets, little bars and restaurants, including nice take-away food, of almost any nationality one can think of, just steps away.
From the house also leads a calm provincial bike-path along the waterfronts and pastures of Delft-land, to the heart of the beautiful old city of Delft, where the famous Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer pictured his masterpieces.
Rotterdam is, beside the numerous harbors, also known for its adventurous post-war, modern architecture. Leaving the house by walking to the left, an impressive collection of !architectural landmarks draws the quickly approaching sky-line of Rotterdam down town; located up and
under the river Meuse and connected by the modern, elegant Erasmus-bridge or so-called “The Swan”.
Within a 20 minutes walk or 15 by bike or tram, the Rochussenstreet leads from Historical Delfshaven (west) to down-town city center and Museum park. Same distance northwards to Central Station (trains, as to Shiphol-Airport, Amsterdam, and metro to Rotterdam/The Haque-Airport and the city of The Hague). Southwards from the doorstep it is a quarter of an hour walk to the wide river-side of the Meuse.
Just around the corner you'll find tram, metro and bus-stops in all directions. From Central Station, tram no. 4 to the south, direction Marconiplein, brings you to our place, stop at “Ruilstraat”, walk-up to the bridge, but just before, turn left.
At Central Station it is easy to rent bikes.

Reviews of this property
On top of a warm welcome and appreciated flexibility, Dineke provided us with a lovely room full of light and all the needed comfort (tea kettle, large eating table, sofa...). The view over the water is great and the house is close to the metro and tramway. I would highly recommend this place for a nice stay in Rotterdam!

We had really a good time in Rotterdam! The room is very big and full of light thanks to the big windows, and the scenario of the river is so amazing! We had towels, the, coffee, tv, wifi, big tables to eat, the possibility to share the kitchen and all the tools inside..and Dineke is such a gentle woman, she also came with her car to take us from the station..the place is a bit far from the centre if you want to walk but there's a metro station near so there's no problem of moving.

Vanaf het moment dat ik de kamer bij Dineke had geboekt en ze zo enthousiast reageerde over onze komst, was ik al in m'n sas met mijn keuze en dat is niet veranderd. We vonden het verblijf heel aangenaam, een heerlijke ruime kamer met een prachtig uitzicht op de Nieuwe Maas en Dineke een hele leuke gastvrouw. Vriendelijk, behulpzaam, stond altijd voor ons klaar, welke vraag we ook hadden. Kortom, we hebben ontzettend genoten van ons verblijf.
