Looking for a week or long weekend during autumn holidays. A couple of hours driving from Alkmaar (The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium).

Nice house, close to the beach, Close to Amsterdam

Summer 2019 is already booked

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.

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.

The old city center of Alkmaar (famous for its cheese and also known as ‘small Amsterdam’) is about 20 minutes by bike. The canals (rent a small boat or a canoe!), The Cheese Market, and lots of places to go for a drink. We have 2 bikes for you (one with child's seat) 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.

About Our Family

We are a family of four: Casper, Eva, our daughter Féline (born november 2015) and our son Dante (born november 2018). We like to travel, meet other people and we are always interested in other cultures and other countries.

Summer 2016, we had our first exchange by Intervac and we had a great experience in Barcelona. In 2017 we went to Finland and Austria. In 2018 we moved from our apartment to a bigger house in Alkmaar and our son was born in november.

We are non-smokers. We have no pets, but we love it to take care for yours. (We had a cat for many years, so we are used to pets).

Lifestyle

Our babygirl Féline is born in November 2015. She is a happy girl who likes to travel too. Our babyboy Dante is born in November 2018.
Eva works as a teacher in Dutch language at a highschool in Alkmaar and Casper works as a process operator and is studying parttime.
We like reading, cycling and hiking with the kids, meet other people and explore the world.
