L'alloggio, in una tipica casina olandese a due piani situata in una tranquilla e caratteristica via vicino alla stazione e al centro, é pulito e familiare. Tamara e suo marito sono molto gentili e sempre a disposizione nel caso in cui il loro ospite abbia bisogno di qualcosa.
If you are anywhere near Alkmaar I recommend making the trip to go to stay with Tamara and her husband. They are two of the friendliest and well traveled people I know. Their house is located close to the train station and is just a short walk from the city center. It is one of the more cosy homes I have been in and really makes for a relaxing place to lounge around or come back to after a day of exploring. You can have a nice breakfast at their place for 6 euros and can rent a bike for the day for 5, which I highly recommend doing as the countryside and small towns around Alkmaar, we visited Bergen and Bergen an zee, are beautiful. It was also nice to be able to just sit and chat with Tamara and her husband about their many adventures and suggestions on where my friend and I should travel to in our future. They were incredible hosts and I definitely recommend staying with Tamara.
Tamara was such a sweet host! I liked how we communicated having lots of conversations in the living room. Felt like I was having a chance of home stay like an exchange student does. The entire house was so cute and I really loved it. Also, breakfast is available if you pay €6. We got to eat some Dutch cheese, breads, fruits and so on. I liked breakfast that she prepared for us.
Alkmaar was the cutest city that I have ever seen in Europe! You could even go to the cheese museum, which I liked. If you still want to go to Amsterdam, it's about 40 minutes by train. Very easy.
If I have another chance to visit the Netherlands, I would definitely visit her and Alkmaar again!
Tamara was very welcoming! We had a cup of tea together upon my arrival in which she told me about the town, and where it would be best to go. She was very knowledgable on the area and made it easy to find what I was looking for.
The location is amazing! It is right in between the train station and the centre of Alkmaar (where the tourist attractions and shops are). It took five minutes or under to walk to either or.
The bedroom was warm, cozy, and so sunny! I definitely want to stay here again. Not only is Alkmaar a beautiful city, but this is a beautiful home. Thanks for an amazing stay Tamara!
Het was een warme ontvangst bij Tamara; ik had problemen met m'n telefoon en mocht bij haar even bellen. Het kamertje was lekker warm.
Very welcoming host, cosy and nice room with good bed. I had a very short stay, but was friendly received, and had an excellent sleep. Close to train station, and in a quiet and friendly street. Easy car parking. Recommended!
Kor. 호스트분이 너무 친절하고 좋은 분이셔서 첫 에어비앤비였음에도 불구하고 좋은 기억만 안고갑니다. 방과 욕실은 모두 깨끗했고 사진에서 보이는 것처럼 아늑했어요. Alkmaar는 작은 도시였지만 평온하고 모두가 친절했습니다.
We are all satisfied of the room and overall environment in that house. The host, Tamara is so kind that we could rest well in Alkmaar.

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.
