We liked staying at Tamara's place in Alkmaar. The room was cosy, clean and the bed was comfortable. Tamara was really nice and helped us with everything we needed. We also had a lot of fun talking to her during our breakfast.

Both Tamara and her husband are very friendly and helpful. We got a map and many useful hints, where to go, what to see and where to eat. The room is not exactly the same as on the pictures: they are continuously upgrading their room, so now there is a small cupboard and a chair staying next to the bed instead of the beanbag-chair. The room is tiny but comfortable - but c'mon: you are not going there to stay all-day in the room. Oh, yes: it is some 3 minutes from the railway station and 5-10mins from the city centre. However the station was close, you could not hear them going up and down.

Tamara was a friendly, helpful, and welcoming host. Alkmaar is a gorgeous area which I definitely recommend visiting, but is also not too far from places like Amsterdam if you want to visit there too. Tamara's place is cosy and well located, and I highly recommend staying with Tamara, renting some bikes, and cycling around the surrounding areas!

Everything was great! Tamara and her husband were very welcoming. Gave us maps and recommendations on what to do. The place was clean and tidy and near shops, restaurants and public transportation. She also rented us bikes for the day. It was a great experience. Would definitely recommend!

I enjoy travelling but also receiving guests. Me and my husband we are passionate about cycling, spending time in nature, cooking and baking, listening to music, reading and gardening.

One of the highlights in travel experience was doing a 3 months bicycle tour through the Amazon (Suriname, Guyana, Brazil). We love to exchange travel stories and adventures with our guests and are curious to hear about your experiences.

One of my mottos:Leave a place I visit more beautiful than I have found it when I arrived.
