Overview

About the property

Includes Bikes, WiFi, Laundry & Private Garden. 30 mins to Amsterdam & Airport

Located in the centre of old town Haarlem and within walking distance to everything this lovely city has to offer, is this quaint 150-200 year-old townhouse that is fully-equipped with modern conveniences to allow you to appreciate it's old-style charm in comfort.

The entire house is available to you when you select this property and it can accommodate up to 4 people. Downstairs is a modern and stylish dining and kitchen area, with French doors that open out onto a private garden courtyard, complete with a BBQ and 2 bicycles for guests to use during their stay. Guests can also relax in the lounge area and there is an electrical fireplace which adds a charming ambiance to the room.

Upstairs, there is a modern bathroom, european laundry and a spacious light-filled loft bedroom with an adjacent sitting area which can be converted into a comfortable second bedroom.

You can also make use of all the amenities provided, including 2 bicycles, central heating, high-speed WiFi, stereo system, fully-equipped modern kitchen, dishwasher, microwave/oven, coffee-makers, alarm clock, washing machine, clothes dryer and BBQ! We also provide all towels and linen.

We also have a baby-bed for hire at 15 euros per stay.

Haarlem is a beautiful cobble-stoned city, 15 minutes by train from the centre of Amsterdam (with trains leaving every 10-15 minutes) and with a direct connection to Schiphol airport. The popular beach village of Zandvoort is also only 15 minutes by train from the city centre and Haarlem is very central for day trips throughout the Netherlands with excellent road and train systems and extensive bicycle routes.

Haarlem is the provincial capital of North Holland, located on the banks of the Spaarne river and is a relaxed city, full of picturesque canals, a maze of narrow medieval streets, hidden gardens, quality restaurants and many of the best dutch museums. The city is also a historical beer brewing centre has a lively culture and active nightlife.

A one minute walk from the house will lead you to ‘Kleine Houtstraat', a pretty boutique shopping street voted to be the best in The Netherlands many times.

Haarlem is perfect for a romantic getaway as well as partygoers and makes an excellent base for visitors to Amsterdam and other surrounding areas, as well as being a great destination in itself, with everything you could want at your doorstep.

Nature is just a short bike ride away and the dunes surrounding the beach village of Zandvoort are very picturesque.

Getting Around:

Buses and trains are just a short walk from the house. The neighbourhood is quiet and Haarlem is a safe city to walk at night time. We also provide 2 bicycles for guest's use and there are more available to hire within the city, however the house is very central and accessible to the city by foot.

Paid parking is available in the carpark directly next door. Free parking is also available within a quick 5 minute walk.

The train station is located on the other side of the city centre and is a 10-15 minute walk or quick bus ride.

We are travelers ourselves and we know how difficult communication can be in a foreign country and that transport delays can occur. For this reason, we have a locked keybox check-in system that will allow you to arrive at a time that suits you (within our advised times), without needing to stay in contact with your arrival time.

We are readily available to answer any questions you may have and have included a neighbourhood guide of recommendations in the local area both in the house and in the Hospitality section of this website.

You can also find answers to many questions you may have provided in a guidebook inside the house and on our page on Facey /CharmingHouseHaarlem

Other Things to Note:

Please ensure you book for the correct amount of guests when booking, as we have additional charges for more than 2 guests, including children. We have additional costs and cleaning times and taxes, so we appreciate your honesty and fairness.

We also have a baby-bed for hire at 20 euros per stay.

Sorry, we cannot accept any pets.

***Please be aware if booking with children or elderly people, that we have very steep traditional dutch stairs that may prove a mobility issue. Please see the photographs as a reference before booking. However, we have had many senior guests and children that haven't found this to be an issue and embrace them as part of the charm of living like the dutch. :)***

Great stay with tons of accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was a blast. They had all sorts of accommodations for us from the washing and drying machine to the dishwasher to the picturesque little backyard. Our stay was wonderful and we had no trouble with anything. Bea and Rudy were also very quick to respond to any questions that we had. If you're looking to see Amsterdam or just Haarlem, this property is perfect!

Lots of space and full of charm

  • 5 of 5

This property is conveniently located five minutes walk from the center of Haarlem and 15 minutes from the train station. It is two stories with a living room and kitchen/dining room downstairs and bedroom with alcove and bath upstairs. There is also a nice patio outside, although we could not use it because it was too cold. The kitchen is well equipped. In fact, the house has everything you could need. It was very quiet at night, and we got a good night's sleep each of the four nights we were there. Although we did not meet the owners, we had lots of communication via email and they provided all the information we needed and were very friendly. The key was available in a box by the front door via a code, which was super convenient. We were very happy with our stay.

Best possible place to stay in Haarlem

  • 5 of 5

Sparkling row house, in a lovely old town, easy public transportation to attractions such as the National Park in the dunes, Amsterdam.

We greatly appreciated information provided by our hosts including details of red bus 300 from Schiphol Airport, even what stop to get off. The house was very well supplied, the back yard pleasant, the local grocery store wonderful. We walked all over and particularly enjoyed the Hofjes and the Windmollen Adriaan. Couldn't recommend this rental

more highly.

both Haarlem and this Charming house is GREAT!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the finest accommodation of our four rentals while in Europe. Everything about it was as charming as its name suggests. Bea and Rudy were excellent to deal with and have put a lot of effort into making their guests time easy and comfortable before and during their stay. Don't let the prospect of the steep stairs discourage you. We are both around 80 years old and had them mastered in no time.

If your looking for the best self contained accommodation in a really nice location while in Holland this we are sure is it.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in numerous accommodations during our lifetime of travel, The Charming House was indeed exceptional. Communication was top notch, above and beyond, what we have ever experienced. The house itself is in a perfect location, the layout and ammenities are superb. Just like home, but better! Super clean, lovely touches and incredibly comfortable. You will have no regrets!

We hope you enjoy your time at Charming House and in Haarlem.

We apologise that we cannot greet you personally as we will not be in The Netherlands during your stay. However, we will do our best to be available via email at all times, in the case of an emergency, the phone number for Rudy's mother (Margo) is available in the house.

Directions:

FROM THE AIRPORT:

It is best to take the Bus Route 300 towards Haarlem, this takes about 30 minutes. You can buy a ticket on the bus, with coins and notes. You will need to get off the bus at stop called "Verwulft". There should be adequate signage in the bus, but if unsure, just ask the driver and they will be happy to help you.

After you get off the bus, you should notice 2 ATM’s and some restaurants directly in front of you. Turn and cross to the other side of the street and then turn left to walk back along "Gedempte Oude Gracht", in the direction that the bus came from.

After approximately 350 metres, after crossing the popular "Kleine Houtstraat" shopping street and walking down a slight hill, you will come across a street sign for "De Kamp" Parking Garage. Turn right into the pedestrian street called "De Witstraat", walk past the entrance of the garage and turn left at the first corner onto another pedestrian street called "De Haasstraat". Charming House is #8 on this street and the forth house on the right.

ARRIVING BY CAR:

Charming House is situated on a walking street called "De Haasstraat". There is a small side-street at the rear of the property called Rozemarijnsteeg, where you may briefly park and unload your car when you arrive.

For parking during your stay, there is unlimited and free on-street parking available on the opposite bank of the Spaarne River, about 5-10 minutes walk from Charming House. You can find detailed directions for this location in the "notes" section of the facey page and a map inside the house.

Paid parking is available in the parking lot "De Kamp" directly in front of the house. (This is also a good landmark for navigating to the the property). Costs are:

8.00h - 19.00h (Thursday 8.00 - 21.00) = €1,60 per 40 minutes

Outside these hours it is quite affordable (overnight) = €2,80.

(Prices may have changed slightly since I last checked).

Parking on the streets surrounding the house are by permit only, with heavy penalty fines (except on Sunday when there is free parking everywhere).

BY TRAIN (FROM HAARLEM CENTRAAL STATION):

You can either choose to walk through the city centre (15 minutes), or catch a bus/taxi to Charming House.

Bus numbers 2, 3, 300 and 73 all stop near the house. You can buy a ticket on the bus, with coins and notes (€1.14). The bus stop you need to get off at is called "Turfmarkt".

From there, walk down the street closest to the bus stop "Burretstraat". Walk straight down this road, after a few hundred metres, it turns into "De Haasstraat". You will find the Charming House on your left (#8), opposite the parking garage.

(You can find all public transport route information at the website www.9292.nl/en)

UPON ARRIVAL:

Check-in is from 3pm and check-out is by 10am.

As travelers ourselves and we know how difficult communication can be in a foreign country and that transport delays can can occur. We believe this system allows you to arrive at a time that suits you, without needing to stay in contact with your arrival time.

By the front door, we have a locked key-box where you will find the key for the property. We will email your personalised number code shortly before your arrival. To open, simply line up the numbers of your code on the front of the locked key-box. To ensure the key-box locks after replacing the key, simply rotate the numbers to a different combination.

We ask that you return the key to the box when you come and go during your stay to avoid any possibility of misplacing it and to allow you and your travel companions to come and go independently. The code will be changed after each guest.

You can find all the information you need in a guidebook inside the house on arrival and also on our page on Faceyprofile "/CharmingHouseHaarlem".
