Lovely family house for rent for families only, located in between Amsterdam and the beach. We have all ingredients for (small) kids in and around our house. In 30 min. you are in the center of Amsterdam. And there are forests and beaches closeby.

The space

Are you looking for a lovely family house to stay over with your family (we only rent to families or couples), with very much light, situated in between Amsterdam and the beaches of Zandvoort/Bloemendaal, then you really have to come over and enjoy. Enjoy the lovely city of Haarlem, with lots of reatuarants and shops and other culture explosions. We offer a large (195 m2) and beautiful old (1920) renovated house near the beautiful old centre of Haarlem. By train it is only 15 minutes from Haarlem to Amsterdam Central station and within 15 minutes you are at the beach. We have five bedrooms, one master bedroom with a double bed (2.00 by 2.10 cm) and a second logies room with a double bed and a kids room on the first floor
with a ledikant and a high sleeper bed of 90 cm x 200cm. On the second floor there are two big kid bedrooms. One with a double alcove bed and one with a high sleeper. We also have an extra matras. On the second floor there is also a bathroom.
We have a garden situated on the South-West so we have sun all day if we want. Next to the house is a big playing field very nice for a picknick and of course for the kids.

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. We also have 2 bikes and an electric bike and a lot od kids bikes (for age 2-6). From the Central station there is a direct train to Amsterdam central station, with takes 15 minutes and a train to Zandvoort (beach) withs takes 15 minutes. But you can also go by bike to the beach (22 minutes).

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.

The house was Perfect for a family with 4 kids or two families with two kids. We had a relaxed and easy stay. Everything was there. A lovely atmosphere, toys and enough space for all. Brechje is very kind and it was convenient to share her stuff. Very close to Bloemendaal and Zandvoort beach and a beautiful neighbourhood around the house. We can't wait to come back!!!

This place is fantastic for families!!! We had EVERYTHING one with little kids might hope to find, toys, high chairs, beds, friendly neighbors, playground a hop and a skip from home and more toys! We were 2 families of 4 with toddler/preschool age kids, we all had a comfortable spot to sleep on and a lot of room to play. Communication w our hosts was always timely, efficient and kind. The location is also wonderful as the city center is really close by, and the neighborhood is very clean and welcoming as well as very green! 5 stars to this wonderful place PERFECT for families with little kids!!!!

Brechje's house is beautiful, bright and spacious. It is prefect for family with kids. Our kids loved the bedrooms! Brechje provided detailed menus about the house and nearby area which was very helpful. We had a wonderful time in Haarlem.

Brechje's house was great to stay in. We were 4 people and needed a big house with separate bedrooms and this was ideal. The back garden links to tennis courts which was a nice touch. Internet is also fairly fast and kept us busy. We would definitely stay here again!

We had a really lovely stay in Brejche's home. The beautiful house is located in a calm, pleasent area of Haarlem within walking distance of the city center. Brejche and her family were really sweet and we had everything we needed. And we had fun taking care of their pet rabbits in the backyard. :) Thanks Brejche!!!

Brechje und ihre Familie haben ein tolles Haus für Familien mit Kindern. Alles ist vor Ort, die Kinderzimmer sind toll gestaltet, ein kleiner Garten mit 2 Hasen lässt andauernd neue Dinge entdecken. Haarlem ist eine wunderschöne Stadt und das Haus von Brechje liegt in einer wunderschönen ruhigen Lage. Zu Fuß ist man in 10 Minuten im Zentrum, wo man alles einkaufen kann, was man so braucht. Zum Strand ist es auch super nah und die Gegend ist total grün, für alle Vorlieben gibt es was. Wir haben noch tolle Tipps und Informationen vor unserer Abreise zu Hause, Gegend und unternehmensweites bekommen und die Nachbarn, die wir zum Teil auch kennengelernt haben, waren auch super nett. Alles ist unkompliziert und man fühlt sich gleich wohl. Auch das Buchungsprozedere hat perfekt geklappt und alles war so, wie auf den Bildern abgebildet.

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.
