My apartment is situated at a quiet and picturesque square within 5 minutes walk from the city center (and tourist office). It is a great place for max. 2 people to hang out or to use it as a home base for trips. There is a private garden. Parking space is nearby. Supermarket is just around the corner. Both beach and Amsterdam city center can be reached in 15 minutes by train or car. In springtime the bulb fields are worth a visit and are also easy accessible from my place.
Haarlem is a lively and easy going city with a beautiful ancient buildings like almshouses and town hall, picturesque narrow streets and famous museums like Teylers museum. Also the court at the central library is worth a visit. Shopping possibilities are great, especially if you like vintage clothes. The street ‘Kleine Houtstraat’ was the nicest shopping street of the Netherlands with a great variety of little shops. In het whole center you will find plenty of nice coffee bars and restaurants. In Summertime you will find lots of festivals in the city. Also the open air theatre is worth a visit.
At my place a citymap is available with locations of bike rental, supermarkets, tourist office. If you like to visit something specific, please let me know in advance, so I can help you to sort it out.
I hope to welcome you to my home and let you enjoy your stay in this beautiful part of the Netherlands.
Living in Haarlem is like having the advantages of a city and a village. That is why I moved here from a little village about 20 years ago.
For my study Energetic Integration I stay in houses in other cities quiet often. We (my fellow students and I) rent through AirBnB. The hospitality we met with the owners made me decide to do rent out my own place. I am very proud of my home and I love to share the convenience of it with you.
Last 20 years I travelled a lot myself. I loved to take make backpack and travel around. My last discovery of great places: Lisbon (Portugal) and Salt Spring Island (BC, Canada). During the Olympic Winter games 2010 in Vancouver I took off from work some months and volunteered over there with the organizing committee. What a great location to stay for a while! also during Winter and Springtime.
My place will be available mostly for a couple of days while I am away for my study. If you would like to stay a longer periode, we can always discuss that. Bedding and towels are available. You can use all facilities like dishwasher, washing machine, television (WIFI available, byo computer). People who would like to have a relaxed stay are most welcome.
