Haarlem, The Netherlands

Enjoy traditional Dutch Haarlem

Apartment 4 2 1
About Our Home
This beautiful, traditional residence is located near the old city center of Haarlem. It is an upstairs apartment and has all the modern conveniences, including cable TV, Wifi, a contemporary kitchen, etc. There is really no need to have a car, everything is accessible by bike or by public transportation. Haarlem is only 30 km away from Amsterdam. The home is close to the beach where Zandfoort is the main beach town. Did you know that Harlem (in New York City) got its name from Haarlem?
Special Considerations
Like all old Dutch homes, the steps going upstairs are fairly steep, so older people should consider this. There is no elevator.
In 't Goede Uur (fondue place), Pakhuis, and many more

Beach is not far away. In fact, you can get there by bicycle (we have 3 that you can use).

  Personal Message

Now that Lia is completing her Psychology studies, we feel it is a good time to travel the world. We prefer low-cost travel with only our backpacks. If home-exchange can be arranged that would be wonderful. We look forward to your offers and suggestions. We are willing to accept any house keeping activities. Thanks.
