Nice house, close to the beach, Close to Amsterdam

We allready have an exchange for summer 2022.

Welcome to Alkmaar! We offer you our house for relaxation and activity. Windmills, tulip fields, the beach (Bergen aan zee, Hargen and Egmond aan Zee) and a 30 minutes direct ride by train to Amsterdam, 40 minutes to Haarlem and in one hour to island 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 (40 minutes by bike, 20 minutes by car) is situated after wavy dunes and beautiful forests. In april and may, you can enjoy the many tulipfields in the surrounding. We have a lot of activities in the surrounding for kids as well. Close to our home there is a bakery, butcher, supermarket, doctor, etc.

In and around the house we have a lot of toys for kids to play with. Our house is very childfriendly. We have Netflix, Disney+ Nintendo switch and many family games to play. There is a bbq in the garden and a fire pit.

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: a cargo bike and we have a carrier for two small kids. We have child bikes in different sizes. If you need more bikes: the bike rental will bring bikes to our home. 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.
