Alkmaar is well known for its traditional cheese market, besides that you can go to visit Tulip garden, Windmills and doing cycling.
Tamara was great. Her communication was always speedy! We loved Alkmaar SO MUCH!
Tremenda experiencia. Tamara es una gran persona, desde que llegamos nos hizo sentir como si estuviéramos en nuestra casa. Nos brindó información sobre cómo llegar a distintos lugares. La habitación es acogedora y fresca; y todo limpio. Alkmaar es un pueblo muy hermoso y tranquilo. Definitivamente volveríamos y nos quedaríamos con Tamara.
A great stay in Alkmaar, great location and Tamara and her husband were so nice and welcoming! Highly recommended. Close to Amsterdam but bear in mind the train ticket is about 7 euro each way.
Einfach nur toll...super schönes Häuschen, wunderschöne Stadt, tolle Tipps der Gastgeberin. Wir werden wiederkommen :) Tamara du bist Spitze ;)

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.
