Nice house, close to the beach, Close to Amsterdam

Hello! Welcome to Alkmaar. We offer you our house for relaxation and activity. Windmills, tulip fields, the beach (Bergen aan zee and Egmond aan Zee) and a 30 minutes direct ride by train to Amsterdam, 40 minutes to Haarlem and in one hour to Texel or Utrecht.

Our house (5 bedrooms, livingroom, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, sunny garden) is situated in the suburb of Alkmaar. It’s a comfortably furnished house and haves a lot to offer in the wide surroundings. The beach (30 minutes by bike, 10 minutes by car) is situated after stretched wavy dunes with bird-rich forests. In april and may, you can enjoy the many tulipfields in the surrounding. We have a lot of activities for kids as well. Close to our home there is a bakery, supermarket, doctor, etc.

We have a bbq, a trampoline, a sandpit and a slide in the garden. In the house we have a lot of toys for kids to play with. Our house is very childfriendly.

The old city center of Alkmaar (famous for its cheese and also known as ‘small Amsterdam’) is about 20 minutes by bike. Next to our street is the busstop. Take bus no 2 for 1 euro to the centre of Alkmaar, the canals (rent a small boat or a canoe!), The Cheese Market, and lots of places to go for a drink. We have two bikes for you (one with child seats) and we have a carrier for two small kids. Instead of the crib for babies you see on the pictures, we have extra beds as well.

We are looking for nature/culture in your country and we are open for all offers.
