The entrance to the apartment building is located at the rear of the main building and serves as entrance to this apartment only. After checking the doormat for mail, you go up the stairs to the first floor where you’ll find the apartment’s front door.
Upon entering the apartment, you are greeted by lots of light pouring in from the patio at its center. Directly after the open hallway, with coat hangers, shoe rack and large wardrobe for all your outdoor attire, you find a welcoming living room. The combination of modern and rustic styles, spacious layout, and soothing colors gives, not just the living room, but the whole apartment a homely feel.
From the living room you can continue on to the kitchen, enter the patio, or enter the master bedroom through the door on your right. Let’s start with the master bedroom. Just like every other room in this apartment, the master bedroom bathes in light throughout the day. On your right hand you got a cozy corner with a 140 x 200 bed, wardrobe, and nightstand, while on your left there is another door providing access to the patio and an open bathroom along the side of the patio around the corner. Here, the wooden floor that spans the apartment floor makes way for patterned floor tiles and soft rock grey walls providing a sleek modern/industrial look, while the wooden elements preserve the apartment’s homely warmth.
Yet another door connects the bathroom to the patio as well; the patio is connected to all major areas of the apartment (living room, master bedroom & bathroom, kitchen). Not only does this make it a convenient shortcut for getting around, it also makes airing out the apartment an absolute breeze. Of course, the patio’s main purpose is to provide you with a place where you can relax in full privacy, have some friends over for drinks, or just replenish your vitamin D. With garden furniture and barbecue all there, you are ready for long summer nights!
Crossing the patio to the other side of the apartment you get to the kitchen, where a large wooden dining table and four comfortable chairs await you and your dinner guests. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, induction plates, fridge, coffee machine, utensils, etc., and several cabinets under the counter provide plenty of storage space. Apart from the doors to the patio and living room, the kitchen also provides access to the last two rooms of the apartment.
The door between the sink and fridge leads to another bathroom. Here you’ll find the toilet, another sink, the shower, and the laundry machine. The wooden elements contrasting with the tiled floor and walls continue the warm tones found throughout the apartment. The other door in the kitchen, on the patio side, leads to the second bedroom. The room has a large closet providing more storage space, minimal furniture, and a sink, making it ideal for either a guest room or a home office.

Things to do in the area – suggestions from the owner
Ouderkerk aan den IJssel and the surrounding area are beautiful and rich in both history and nature. The 759-years-old village boasts no less than 29 national monuments: traditional Dutch farmhouses, church and cemeteries, and a drawbridge. Surrounded by agriculture, the village lies right at the bank of the river IJssel. A small ferry is available for pedestrians and bicyclists to cross the river to get to Hitland, the nature and leisure park on the other side.
Alternatively, you can drive into Rotterdam or Gouda, or go there by public transport as outlined below.
Luckily, everything is close in a village, so the nearest grocery store is only 500 meters away from the apartment. The bakery and pizzeria are a little further down the street, although also well within walking distance.
Getting around & parking
In the entire village parking is free. Behind the apartment building are convenient parking spaces, so you’ll never have to walk far to get to your car in the morning.
There are no trains or trams stopping in Ouderkerk aan den IJssel, so to go anywhere with public transport you’ll need to take a bus. Fortunately, the nearest bus stop is located next to the grocery store, and it will only take you a couple minutes to get there from the apartment. From the bus stop (Burg. Neetstraat), you can take bus 196 to either Rotterdam or Gouda. It will take you about 45 minutes to one hour to get to Rotterdam Centraal (central train station), and about 30 minutes to get to Gouda (train station).
