My home is for me like a second skin. I assume that you will treat it like I do... with love and respect.
I am happy to share everything in and around my house with you. There are no special rules. Only one I think.. when you are a smoker please do it outside in front of the house or in the backyard and not inside.
Thanks and have a great stay in lovely Alkmaar.
Micha was very helpful and friendly. The house was clean and organized in a quiet neighborhood. the description of the location is very accurate and close to the train station. Highly recommend.
Micha lives in a lovely house in a beautiful place in Alkmaar. She made us feel at home instantly. We had a nice talk and delicious coffee.The house is rather small, but Micha decorated everything nicely and therefore it looks cosy. The room has everything you need (and even more!) Alkmaar is a beautiful city with lots to see. This place is definitely worth a returning to!
Micha is such a sweet soul. The space was good for me as a solo traveler. The commute to Amsterdam was short but I actually spent more time in alkmaar instead because of her influence. Enjoyed a bike ride through the country side and was able to attend the cheese festival. Paid extra money for a picturesque and different variety breakfast :) thank you so much!
Micha, my host in Alkmaar, was very friendly, with no hurry she showed me the room and the facilities. She gave me maps of the city and the surrounding. She gave me the keys. She offered me something to drink. And there was fresh fruit, some chocolates, tea and coffee, and even a fresh flower in the cozy and clean small room!
Micha´s home has a good spirit! Handled with care, trusting, and open minded.
Her small house is close to the train station and close to Alkmaar´s lovely city center, a supermarket is within walking distance. All very convenient! And there´s a beautiful bicycle trail to the sea shore to Bergen or Egmond - both about 8 km away.
Micha house is so pretty, with beautiful decoration and she is a great host, always kind and willing to help. Also, Alkmaar is a beautiful town, definitely worth a visit if you are going to Amsterdam, just 30 min by train. The room is very small, though, for the price, but apart from that, I think I would totally recommend to stay with her.
Micha is a great host. Room small but cosy, you feel at home straight alway! Thank you!
