Perks for the Parents

This beautiful home in The Hague has a sauna, terraces and a lovely garden, and is just a 10-minute cycle from the beach. It includes all the amenities you could need for a great family stay, with plenty of play areas inside the house, in the garden, and within a short walk. There is space for a nanny or additional guests such as grandparents, and plenty of privacy. Parents can relax in the garden, on the balcony, by using the in-house sauna, going to yoga, the gym, or a pool around the corner, or on the terraces of one of the 5 restaurants at the doorstep. Family dining is easy at home too, with an indoor table seating up to 10 and an outdoor dining area for up to 12.

Why Kids Love it

There is an abundance of toys and books for children under 10, with a dedicated play room on the ground floor with plenty of space for wheeled toys, a piano for older kids, and a large couch for young and old to chill out. Bedrooms are set up for kids: one has a swing, another with gymnastic hoops, and a fun sleeping loft at the top sleeps up to 4 older children. There are 4 playgrounds within a 10-minute walk. The beach, a 10-minute bike or tram ride away, is great for all ages and offers surfing lessons, an aquarium and a Ferris Wheel. Take the kids around town in the owners’ typical Dutch transport bike (bakfiets) which fits up to 3 children under 10. The house is on a quiet street with a wide sidewalk.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 1 week. Note that since this is a classical townhouse there are wide and steep stairs without gates. Children should be supervised on the mezzanine level of the top bedrooms; this sleeping loft is suitable for children over the age of 6. Street parking is easily available but is paid. Car rental is useful but not essential, depending on whether you plan to stay in the area or explore the country at large. The Netherlands has a highly reliable rail network - it takes 40-50 minutes to reach Amsterdam from The Hague by train, and 30 minutes to reach Rotterdam. The train station is a 30 minute walk/ 15 minutes by public transport from the house.

About the Location

The residence is a 10-minute cycle ride from the heart of The Hague and a 10-minute cycle in the other direction to the beach. It is on the border of the Zeeheldenkwartier and Willemspark neighborhoods and is easily accessible by all forms of public transportation to the city center. There are multiple parks and playgrounds within a 5-minute walk. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants on the doorstep. The easiest way to reach The Hague by air is by flights into Amsterdam Schiphol or Rotterdam airports, both approximately 30 minutes’ drive away.

Style Notes

Clean and bright. This classical 19th century Dutch townhouse in the vibrant ‘Zeeheldenkwartier’ is in a wonderful location next to the Peace Palace in The Hague City Center, yet only a 10-minute bike ride to the beach. The first floor has an impressive dining-living room with oak floors and ornamented ceilings while the clever attic space at the top adds a fun play space for kids. Bright and light, there are warm wooden floors and classical dramatic ornamented ceilings across the living area on the first floor. The furniture is a mix of vintage and Scandinavian basic, and art posters add color and creativity. We love the tall windows in the main living space, the row of bright red cinema seats and the cozy eating and lounge area in the backyard.

The Hague, The Netherlands

Dune-backed beaches and city-style culture

The Netherland’s third largest city is right on the North Sea, with dune-backed beaches busy with watersports fans in the busy summer months. It’s a great location for a city, culture and beach vacation, being home to many great museums including the Voorlinden contemporary art gallery. Trains run regularly to Amsterdam for easy day-trips and the whole of the Dutch coast is easy to explore from here.
