Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this house. It is a great base for exploring the local area and for getting into Amsterdam. We drove to the edge of Amsterdam and used the park and ride facility (about 20 mins drive and then about 15 minutes on the tram), which was very easy. We also enjoyed walking and cycling around Haarlem, which is a lovely town, as well as it not being far to the beach either.

The house is well furnished and has everything you need. Tamara was extremely helpful and the house was as described. Not much in the way of garden but we enjoyed the sunshine on the terrace. The stairs up to the top bedroom are very steep, but our 7 year old soon got used to them and managed in the night fine.

A wonderful, spacious house with garden in Haarlem

  • 5 of 5

The house was very accurately described. It was very clean and the owner could not have been more hospitable and helpful. A very safe and friendly neighbourhood with lots of places to shop for groceries and visit markets.

Everything was within walking distance, including the train station and the local bus which took us to the airport.

The house had everything necessary to cook meals and then some. There was lots of space for all of us and we could not have enjoyed ourselves any more anywhere else.

We highly recommend this lovely home.

Thanks for a Lovely Stay : ))

  • 5 of 5

We spent the last few days of our holiday in the Netherlands in Haarlem and knew we had made an excellent choice with this property. It is centrally located and the closest supermarket was within walking distance. Although parking in the street was a bit tricky, Tamara provided us with a 3-hour car parking pass which helped tremendously (plus FREE Sunday Parking). We loved your kitchen which had all the modern conveniences of home (including the toaster!). The street was quiet at night (even the garbo's were hush hush in the early morning). We visited the local Market in the Grote Market which was wonderful and the people at the VVV were very helpful also. Easy transport to Amsterdam via the train is a must and was a lovely experience. You have a lovely home Tamara, very convenient to transport and definitely a place to be proud of, thank you for allowing us to stay there. It was a great end to a fabulous holiday. We will certainly recommend this property to friends and family in Australia should they visit Holland. We'll be back! Tot Ziens : ))

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six was very comfortable and appreciated the living space—all three floors. We enjoyed the garden in back and ate outside a number of times. The kitchen was well equipped and allowed us to make meals easily. The younger ones liked the ladder to the third bedroom. Also, the owner’s artwork gave the house a personal and overall unique feel.

For Amsterdam visits, we opted for a 20-minute walk along the canals to the Haarlem train station. Amsterdam was a quick hop away. Also, in the other direction one could visit the sea within minutes.

Haarlem is a good city to visit itself. From the house, it’s less than a ten minute walk to a choice of grocery stores. Restaurants and interesting visiting sites are only few minutes further. An odd museum called Teylers mixed science, art and other stuff and turned out to be a delight.

We would return without hesitation.

Car: not necessary

An affordable dream location for city- as well as nature lovers. With Amsterdam, The Hague and Utrecht reached with Public transport within 30 min, it is the best location for your city holiday trip: museums, bars, great restaurants, all the high lights of four city's.

But if you look for a quiet holiday with lots of fresh air and sports, you can go for cycling, walking, water sport, horse riding and golf. But you can also just lounge on your own roof terrace, in the hippiest beach bars of Bloemendaal (such as Woodstock) and Zandvoort or in the centre of town, just a 5 minutes walk.

Specials not to be missed: De Keukenhof (famous flower exhibition in the open), Linnaeushof (biggest play garden of Europe) and much more.
