Tamara and her partner were very welcoming and friendly from the very start of communication. Even though we couldn't check in early, we could leave our luggages there while we go off for the day. They also gave us handy tips about Alkmaar and the "secret" lookout to the town from one of the cafes in town. It's about 40 minutes train ride to Amsterdam, but it's a great spot, especially if you arrive on a Friday (check out the cheese festival!). It's also close to Zaanse Schans. The rooms are cosy, but was all we needed to rest. The stairs are quite small and narrow so just be prepared if you have big/heavy luggage. It was easy to find the place and only 5 minute walk to the train station. Definitely recommend those who are travelling to Amsterdam or surrounding to stay here.

Our experience staying with Tamara and Shanti was wonderful, the house is beautiful and cozy and we were very comfortable. When we first arrived she gave us great tips with things to do in Alkmaar and near towns that we could reach by bike. They rented bikes at a very good price and it's worth saying that you can go anywhere biking in Netherlands. In conclusion, it was a great experience and Alkmaar is a neautiful place to stay.

We had a perfect stay with Tamara in her beautiful house! Both Tamara and her husnand are such a lovely people, friendly, helpful and accommodating. They met our every request, gave great tips about Alkmaar and made sure we were comfortable in every way. Tamara even offered us coffee and cookies which was so sweet of her! Our room was small but cozy, with a very comfortable bed, and in a quiet, homey neighborhood. The house being right next to the train station made our stay in Alkmaar even more convenient. All in all, great experience, thank you Tamara and hope to see you some time again!

Great little place to explore Alkmaar for a few days. Very close to the train station and a short walk to the centre. Tamara was very helpful and friendly, and would definitely stay again if I was in the area.

Tamara User ProfileTamara is a superhost.

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.
