A friend can pick you up or bring you to the station, airport(bus), Amsterdam, Zaanse Schans, whereever you want to go to, or want to be picked up from for a very small amount! You can use the bikes at my place.
The coast and wellknown beaches of Zandvoort and Bloemendaal are 5 km away, nature, tulipfields and walking/runnning possibilities you will find around the corner.

Other things to note
Er zijn twee trappen naar zolder, sommige mensen ervaren die als steil en smal, voor hollandse begrippen zijn ze normaal!
Mocht u echter ouder of slecht ter been zijn of om een andere reden moeilijk trappen kunnen lopen, denk hier dan wel aan.
In- en uitchecktijden zijn (nog) flexibel, dit betekent echter in overleg, of waar mogelijk, anders geldt uitchecken 12 uur, inchecken 4 uur.
No smoking inside the house.
I live in a quiet neighbourhood, I ask my guests to respect that and to think about my neighbours, so no loud music, or parties and no people under the age of 21 on their own.
When you leave the house put off all lights and the central heating, to save the earth and to keep the costs low, gas and electriciy is very expensive in Holland!
IMPORTANT only use toiletpaper for the toilet, no tampons, bandages or whatever, it is not working any more right away, you can hear that too.
On your departureday leave the apartment tidy and clean, how you found it, so no dirty dishes..and everything in the right place......
Hello, I am Ellen,,, I live in this nice and quiet house built in 1938.
My biggest passion are beads and beading so I can teach you a lot about that, if you are into that.
On the moment I am a designer of special necklaces and other jewelry.
Before 2000, when I had an operation, I had different jobs, and I liked to travel a lot, I even lived on Ibiza for some time, and had my own business there. That is one of the reasons I speak so many languages so well.
But life is more quiet now, the house big enough to be a very good host, as I always am to my friends.
I like to cook, reading books, walking and riding on my bike.
So, a warm welcome for my guests, who want to have a great time in a cosy apartment, situated in an ideal part of Holland to see the Hot Spots of Amsterdam and Haarlem, but also like nature and the beach....I will see to it that you have a great time in my house!
If you want to be on yourself or like to have some advice or any kind of help,,,,,,,,
It is all up to you...
Hope to see you in beautiful Haarlem!
