Welcome in our cosy family house with garden in the city centre of Alkmaar. Our house is located just 1 m walk from the train station (35 m to Amsterdam) and 40 m biking from the beach (Bergen, Egmond or Schoorl aan Zee). Also use our transport bike!
We love our house, which we have renovated and painted in the last few years. We also love our neighbours. So we will expect our guests to respect both. Please:
- don't smoke
- don't make too much noise (no parties)
- respect the wooden floors, so leave your high heels in the hall
- we cannot allow dogs because of our cats
We are a family of 4; our children are 7 and 9 years old. We love hilking and since 3,5 years we follow the way to Rome; where we hope to arrive in about 9 years time. We also have 2 sweet cats. Lianne started an organisation for voluntary work and internships in Africa in 2004, Richard is working at the university. We also like cooking a lot and use organic products as much as possible.
We really like our house and also our neighborhood; it is a neighborhood build between 1900 and 1920 with small streets and very nice people. Since a couple of years we even have a neighborhood common room, where we eat every week with a varied group of neighbors. A group of people, me included, are the voluntary cooks. The children like playing outside, theater, singing and dance, swimming and gymnastics.
