We had 4 nights at Tamara's at end of a 3 month trip through Europe , staying at more than 30 Airbnb's . She is conveniently located close the city and train station. The flat is not really a bed and breakfast , it is more like a small backpackers with 3 rooms. When full, which it was when we stayed , the place is noisy and crowded with guests coming and going at all hours. The operators were not sleeping on the premises , only there during the day and making the areas of the lounge and kitchen not welcoming to guests. So pictures can be deceiving .All I can say in comparison to all other places stayed at, this one doesn't rate that well at all.
Bei Tamara und Shanti habe ich mich sofort zuhause gefühlt. Alles war sauber und nett eingerichtet. Durch meinen langen Aufenthalt fühlte ich mich mit beiden wirklich verbunden. Sie können einem gute Tipps für Ausflüge in und um Alkmaar geben. Auch das mitgemietete Fahrrad war prima - denn damit kommt man wirklich überall hin! Ich komme auf jeden Fall wieder :)
Тамара - гостеприимная хозяйка, милый и добрый человек. В комнатах чистота и порядок. Апартаменты расположены близко от вокзала, на тихой, спокойной улице. Они с мужем велотуристы с большим опытом, много интересного могут рассказать. Нам все понравилось. Михаил и Екатерина.
Tamara was very nice host. Everything was very clean and comfy.
Tamara was such a great host! I had a very pleasant stay at her house. The room and the bed was really comfortable. She even get me a very thick blanket because I'm not used to the cold weather in Netherlands. The bathroom was pretty nice too. But the stairs to the room was quite scary (maybe just for me). The house is very conveniently near to the train station, so it is a big plus for the guests. Anyone visiting Netherlands, you definitely should stay in Tamara's place.

About the Host, Tamara
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.
