The room is spacious and there is everything you can need for breakfast (including a very good cofee machine). However the only pbl can be the location as the house is situated around 20min by walk to the station (there is also 2 buses but there are not very regular ) and then you have to catch the train towards Amsterdam (30min). The price for each traject is 5.5€ so you pay 11€ just for the day return and the transportation card for "Amsterdam and its neibourghoods/region" does not include Castricum.

I had a very pleasant and quiet stay at Dorien's. She was really helpful, and even picked me up with my luggage from the train station on my first day. She did her best to make me feel very welcome everyday that I stayed with her.

I enjoyed living at Dorien' s place. It's supercosy and comfortable. Castricum is a nice and charming town. Its location is very close to Amsterdam (30 minutes by train). Moreover, you can rent a bike to get a coast (5 km). Dorian is a very helpful and friendly landlord. I appreciate for the warm reception and tips.

The house is in a lovely quiet neighbourhood, close to a beautiful village & very close to a indoor shopping centre which you could get anything you need from. The room is very clean & the bed was extremely comfortable, there is a kettle tea etc, & many maps & tour guides of the local area, the bathroom is also very clean. Dorien couldn't have been nicer she was so helpful & friendly, she was a great help when I planned trips, better than my guide book! Castricum is a beautiful village with some stunning walks or cycles if you prefer, woodland, beach & a lake its a fabulous place to visit.

Quiet, comfortable, spotless and convenient location (for me and on my bike). Really enjoyed my stay. Dorien a great host.

OK room, 1 persons bed, soap dispenser in the bathroom was entirely empty the couple of times I wanted to wash my hands, and bathroom was clean but probably could have been better (things were lying about on the shelf, not neatly disposed), one morning I came in and found a piece of wet [!] toilet paper [!] squeezed together just left sitting on the toilet seat, I didn't know what it was doing there, but preferred not to ask. Breakfast wasn't served, but host pointed that out on day of arrival. All in all doable, though Spartan (austere Dutch).

Response from Dorien:
Ik kan mij in het negatieve commentaar van mijn 30e gast Roman totaal niet vinden. Spartaans?? Heb er mijn vraagtekens bij en moet eigenlijk ook lachen.
