Tamara was a wonderful hostess; welcoming, helpful, and incredibly accommodating! She gave me clear directions to her house from the train station and was very helpful in offering advice for the best routes to Alkmaar. She was very flexible and accommodating with check-in and check-out, and welcomed me to her home by offering me a cup of tea when I arrived at 10:00pm. There is a tiny, steep staircase up to the rooms, which can make bringing luggage upstairs difficult, but I found it added character to the precious, old home! The room itself was very comfortable; there was a small desk area where I was able to do some homework quite comfortably and the bed was very cozy. Tamara was absolutely wonderful to chat with and so incredibly helpful in giving recommendations and helping me navigate the town and surrounding areas. I felt completely comfortable in approaching her with any questions or concerns and we enjoyed some lovely conversation over tea and coffee. I would most certainly recommend Tamara's rooms to any traveler who is looking for kindness and comfort!

My staying at Tamara's place has been thoroughly enjoyable. Her house is very nice and cosy and the room was exactly what I was expecting from the description. The neighborhood is nice and queit and the location is just great, with both the train station and the city centre at a short walking distance. Tamara has been the perfect host, very kind, friendly and helpful. I am looking forward to be back there.

Tamara is a kind person and she really likes this kind of job. I had a great welcome in the garden when I arrived! I booked for two nights and she was all the time available for my questions even before our meeting. The house is quite small but, most important, everything is clean. The bathroom is shared with other guests and the room is small but the bed is comfortable and big enough to have a good sleep. The house is located about 5 minutes from the station and 10 to the centre. I would recommend this place.

I had a very satisfying experience in Tamara's place. The room was cozy and clean exactly as described, Wifi connection available, shower and everything else good and clean. The place is very close to the train station and also close to the city center. Tamara herself is a very helpful person with a lot of life experience.... I had great conversations with her in such a short time and she s always available to offer information and help... definitely my recommendation to everyone visiting 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.
