Very nice stay at Tamara's house! Although we did not meet Tamara, we had a lot of correspondence with her. Her house is in an excellent location and is represented accurately in her pictures and write-up. Comfortable room, good bathroom and a very enjoyable and quiet stay.
Almost attached to the Alkmaar train station, just at 30' from Amsterdam and 5-8' walking from the charming city center. This is a nice, clean an quiet place to stay! Tamara is always trying to make you feel as you would in your own house. And actually you do, but in a traditional Dutch house :)
We had a short but pleasant stay with Tamara. We were busy with family engagements for most of our time in Alkmaar so didn't spend much time in the house, but Tamara and her husband were very welcoming and kind, and the room was very clean and comfortable. The house is situated conveniently near the train station, and a short walk into the cente of Alkmaar, which is a very pretty and interesting town. There were 3 other guests also staying when we were there so a small queue for the bathroom in the morning, but that wasn't really a problem, and although it's a shared bathroom there is another toilet and sink upstairs which was useful. The room is extremely good value for money. Thank you for a nice stay!
Un super premier voyage au Pays Bas. Un accueil très agréable de Tamara et Shanti à notre arrivé et tout le long de notre séjour.
Nous avons pu déguster un thé avec Tamara à notre arrivé, discuter et recevoir des conseils sur les lieux a visiter.
La maison est bien située et le centre ville d'Alkmaar est vraiment sympa. Nous avons pu faire le marché, avec les conseils de Tamara et nous avons beaucoup apprécié. De plus, les paysages et les villages aux alentours de Alkmaar sont superbes (quelques exemples : Bergen, Middenbeemster, Marken, Hoorn, Enkhuizen...etc)
Merci encore à vous. Et bonne continuation dans vos voyages et vos découvertes !!

last night we back to netherland and stayed again here. we talked anything about our trip to italy and paris with tamara and husband like best friend.. :) many thanks to them, they really help us to prepared our (big) luggage to back home. and on the last day, they borrowed us the bicycle to piets molen, very2 beautiful place !! :D
they are care couple, we already miss them !!
see you soon tamara and husband, God bless you all.. :)
Tamara´s accommodation was very nice as pictures suggests. We also rented bikes from her. I can definitely recommend her accommodation. Also short trip to Bergen aan Zee is highly recommended.
We initially came across Alkmaar looking for a cheaper alternative to Amsterdam, which is just 35 minutes away. But Alkmaar itself is well worth the trip: It has a cute town centre and scenic bike routes to the beach. Tamara and her partner are friendly and flexible. They provided helpful maps and advice, and it was very convenient to rent bikes.
The room itself is basic, with shared bathroom and free wi-fi. The house is well located near the train station and centre with some free parking options not too far away.
we love tamara and husband !!
they are really2 the best host for us in europe, specially in netherland.
alkmaar is very pretty quite in netherland, and we thanks to God because we stayed in tamaras house.. :D

thank you so much tamara and husband, we will be back to your home when we come back to netherland, we promise !! :D

Our trip to the Netherlands would not have been as pleasant as it was were it not for the kindness and patience of Tamara and her husband. We had a bit of trouble with this part of our trip as far as making clear plans, and Tamara was so patient and understanding during the process. Moreover, it was so easy to find! The B&B is literally right next to the Alkmaar train station and Tamara's instructions from the Amsterdam airport were very clear and precise. The house in person is so lovely, we definitely felt comfortable, safe, and at home! Tamara and her husband are such nice people and are great hosts; very approachable and easy to talk to. Alkmaar itself is an awesome little town, lots of shopping and restaurants and was an easy jumping off point for visiting the rest of north Holland.
Ultimately, we would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone wanting a great experience in north Holland.
Ciao a tutti siamo state da Tamara persona gentile e disponobile be posto accogliente e familiare
un caro saluto cri e dani
