In my house I have one room that was an office it is spaceous to host one or two persons and have bicycles for use. I am bound by limited amount of days I can host and so I do not accept everybody nor don't I accept people who do not write a respectful message with introduction.
The bikes are free to use and so are also the other things in the house. I trust my guests and so far I always had guests who trusted me.
I host as I like it and hope that you look forward to a Dutch experience.
The mattresses are good quality spring mattresses on the floor. During the evening and night you will have a privet room. I am turning the room into a full guest room in time. Due to limited amount of time and especially space are there still many business items laying around.
Located south of Haarlem in bicycling distance to downtown (12 minutes), Zandvoort beach (35 minutes), popular Bloemendaal aan Zee (45 minutes), historic site Cruquius (10 minutes) and surrounded by excellent biking infrastructure through areas with great experience. A bike / bikes will be available for your comfort and have a way to explore culture of developed transport by bike.
The apartment is in within walking distance (7 minutes) to busstation (direct fast bus to Schiphol or Haarlem centre), large park, shopping mall, fitness centre and take-out.
The office is available to you when you select this property.
The apartment has a large kitchen, large living room and large balcony with sun on the 2nd half of the day. The dining table in the kitchen I use as office now and great to work there with the sun coming up.
You can also make use of all the amenities provided, including the central heating, a fully-equipped kitchen, dishwasher, fast WiFi internet (60 Mbit), flatscreen TV, SONOS sound system in living room and kitchen, washing machine, printer & further office equipment and my bicycles (male & female model). On the lovely balcony a BBQ can be used. Parking is available at the front of the building and there is always enough space.
Haarlem is a beautiful cobble-stoned city and from the busstop (7 minute walk) it is 17 minutes to Schiphol, 7 minutes to downtown Haarlem, to popular Zandvoort beach 30 minutes and 25 minutes to Amsterdam Central. Nevertheless I advise to go by bike to the train station when going to Amsterdam or don't want to cycle a long way to the beach. I will provide guidance on specific routes and how and what.
About Haarlem, located on the banks of the Spaarne river, this relaxed city is full of picturesque canals, a maze of narrow streets, hidden gardens and many of the best dutch museums. A 12 minute bicycle trip aside the Spaarne river will lead you downtown to ‘Kleine Houtstraat’, a pretty boutique shopping street voted to be the best in the Netherlands many times. The city also boasts many great restaurants and bars and this historical beer-brewing centre has a lively culture and active nightlife. The local Haarlem beer brand with unique taste, Jopen, is brewed in a well-renovated church where you can enjoy the different flavours.
Haarlem is perfect for a romantic getaway as well as partygoers and makes an excellent base for visitors to Amsterdam.

Guidance to non-touristic need-to-know things to do based on your specific preferences and available time.
Interaktion mit Gästen
In general I advise guests on what to do based on their specific preferences. E.g. outdoor persons in late April - May should cycle to the Keukenhof (±1 hour) and then go further to the beach close to the route. The cycling experience is not only transport then, but a journey through NL and nature. In the summer there are many festivals in and around Haarlem and often guests like to visit the popular or quiet beaches in cycle distance.
All round the year there are activities and let me know what you like, I will do my utmost to help you get around.

When planning to visit many museums and especially with top museums, then buy a Museumkaart (museum card). With that you can visit almost all large museums for free and in general you save money when you visit 3 or more musums.
When you plan to travel a lot by public transport it is good to get a multi day Amsterdam region transport card. With that you can travel from Schiphol to my place and to Amsterdam. It will save you money when you want to get every day to Amsterdam by public transport. A lot of guests who want to cycle don't go to Amsterdam every day as they enjoy Haarlem region well.
The neighbors are nice and can be shy, I just say hi all the time and receive nice answers back.
Basic rule is feeling at home.
The bicycles are free of use.
