The space

Our place is a very relaxed and comfortable place to stay, with great connections to both city and nature.

Interaction with guests

We might be around sometimes to pick up some things or use the washing machine, but you will be mainly on your own.

The neighbourhood

We have a lot of families around, so playgrounds are around and even a big park just accross the street. The supermarket is a 2 minute walk as well. If you take a bit more time, a beautiful national park is within walking distance as well.

Other things to note

We have a cat called Ravi, we would highly appreciate it if you would feed him.

Merel and her family's home were amazing. In a quiet area of Harlem, but nearby public transport, grocery, restaurants, and parks. We traveled with our 18 month old and really enjoyed having the comforts of a baby-friendly home.

The apartment is very cute. There's one cat who is very affectionate with a "love me now" personality. We unfortunately had the water heater issues but the owner was extremely helpful in getting fixed. It's a very peaceful neighborhood with a bus station 2 blocks away. Merel's communication is excellent despite her being on holiday. I would highly recommend.

We really felt like home at Merel's house - it was one of our most relaxing holiday. The house is conveniently located 1 minute walk from a grocery store that is open until late unlike most stores in Haarlem and we could use Merel's bicycles to get around the town which was really wonderful, convenient and and it's part of the Netherlands experience.

Merel's home was warm and inviting, and perfect for our trip to The Netherlands. There were three adults, and we were each able to get our own space. We had everything we needed, and Merel was very good about responding to our questions, making the home comfortable for our arrival, and giving suggestions about the area. Getting into the apartment was easy. The apartment was located in the Northern Haarlem area, and Haarlem is a beautiful town very near to Amsterdam.

We spent two nights in the lovely home of Merel. She is very friendly and although we didn't meet in person, she did a lot of effort to make sure we would feel very welcome. The house is very nice with all the facilities you need. The little balkon with open doors from the room is located on the south so we could sit in the sunshine after a nice bike ride in de surrounding of Haarlem. We also could lent bikes to the center and this is a good way to see the beautiful center. We highly recommend the home of Merel.

Op avontuur gaan, nieuwe plekken ontdekken en genieten van lokale winkeltjes, eten en natuur of stad: de perfecte vakantie. Ik houd van het rauwe van Berlijn, het landelijke van een dorpje met fruitstalletjes en de luxe van een goede sauna.
