Haarlem is a beautiful city with a very nice centre full of restaurants and nice bars. Haarlem is also one of the best shopping city's of Holland. From our house to the centre is only a 10 minutes walk or you can take the bus or bike. The Central station is in the centre.

Our house and neighborhood are very nice and very childfriendly. You can park your car (for free) in front of the house.There is a double living room with a dining table and a separate kitchen, where you can also dine (and wine). With a nice garden with sunshine. It's a perfect house for one or two adults and a maximum of 4 kids. (in the childroom there is everything you need for a child. (, changingtable, toys etc etc) e have all the luxury you need. We have a dishwasher, Wifi, digital television, a washing mashine a washdryer etc.
Perfect home for families with kids. The dune and sea are part of our biggest national park and are just 10 mins away by bike. The city centre of Haarlem with all it's museums and restaurants is even closer. Amsterdam CS is only 15 mins by train.
The house is build in the 1920s. We are the 2nd family living in it. It's modernized, yet we preserved the original details and charm of the place.
There are 2 matrimonial beds, comfortably sleeping 2 pairs. One of these matrimonial beds can be converted int 2 separate sleepers. There is 1 big (1,80m) children´s bed.
You can use our washing machine & dryer, basically all facilities in the house. You can also use our bikes, but we do ask for guarantee of 100 euro per bike (not something we like to do, but we´ve had too many problems). We have 3 bikes, including 1 cargo bike: the best way to go to the beach and avoid traffic & parking costs.
You have access to all places, except for the basement
Interaction with guests
I am more than willing to give suggestions for fun activations, good restaurants, etc. Just let me know.
Only for families, not for students/groups of friends. Sorry.
My name is Brechje Schonk. I am a mother of 3 little ones. I love taking care of them and fooling around with them. We go often on the road, preferably to the dunes and the beach.
I like to work hard and take care of people/friends. My dream is to start my own b&b ones. This is a good start;-)
I like to surprise people, to surprise, so I like to have a table full of people and a night full of fun.
I have lots of energy, also necessary with three active kids.
Love family life in combination with my work. Never a dull moment and can not does not exist. That is how I live life.
