The Space

We live in a great apartment in the historic centre of Alkmaar. It has 2 bedrooms and is central for city trips to Haarlem or Amsterdan (30 min). Or visit Zaanse Schans, the beach or Texel (island).

The apartment has a big living room with open kitchen (with tea, coffee, herbs, dishwasher) and a bar. Of course a big kitchen table :) great for having breakfast.

There are 2 bedrooms, great beds and a nice bathroom. For bicycles there is a shed.

When staying in our home you feel the space of the apartment and relaxed vibe from the beautiful historical city of Alkmaar, with of course the famous cheese market (1 min walk!).

Within a few minutes you have all the city has to offer: bars, shops, museum, canals, parcs. And the beach at 15 minutes by car or bus.

Central station is within 5 minutes walk. A bus stop is in front of the house at the canal.

What makes this place unique: the light, space and of course the location of the apartment. A place we call home! Enjoy.

The Neighborhood

The old and historical centre of Alkmaar is right at door and at the back of the apartment you look over a big and old square.

The apartment is situated in a nice and quit street close to all the high lights Alkmaar has to offer. In fact the street is one of the oldest streets and due to the architecture the street has a relaxed vibe.

On fridays Alkmaar has the 'Kaasmarkt' which is famous world wide. Also do a canal cruise experience for a historical and different point of view on the city.

The beach of Bergen is only a 40 minutes bicycle ride (recommend!) or a 20 minutes bus drive.

Cities like Amsterdam, Zaandam are just 40 minutes by train.

Getting around

Within less than 10 minutes walk from the Alkmaar station you reach my apartment.

Bicycle is the best way for transportation around Alkmaar and also for visiting Bergen and the beach.

For longer distances and visit other cities, like Amsterdam and Zaandam, public transportation is easy to do and the main bus stop is right in front of the apartment (2 min walk).

Car parking can be expensive but we can arrange a parking spot in a garage near the house (2 min walk). Please get our advice on that.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed in Alkmaar over New Year and enjoyed it very much. Great appartment for our purposes :-) - shopping, going out, doing some sightseeing in Marken and going to the beach for having a long walk.

    We can recommend Dick-Jan´s place for families and/or for couples.

    Don´t miss Cafe "Echt" just around the corner for great food. Also "Wereldwijd" - a great buffet restaurant.

  • Very nice and cosy appartment in the beautiful city of Alkmaar. Within short walking distance to all the amenities of the town, 20 minutes by car to the beaches of Northern Holland, short trip to Amsterdam.

    Dick-Jan and Emma are very nice and helpful people. We stayed for 2 weeks & everything went smooth and easy-going - from booking procedures to departure. We can really recommend host and appartment!

    PS: noise sensitive people should be aware of the "Alkmaar Kermis" (1 week in late august): screams of young people racing the nearby rollercoaster might follow you into your dreams :-))

Hope you like our apartment in the Alkmaar city centre. It is close to the beach and Amsterdam is only 30 minutes by train! I work as a marketing manager in the media business and I spend a lot of my time somewhere else than in Alkmaar. In Amsterdam, with Emma my girlfriend. In the weekends I love to hang out with friends, doing sports, read and just chill.
