About this listing

The space

The apartment is on the ground floor and has a magnificent view over the large canal, called Noord-Hollands kanaal, from the seating area. Except for the seating area, there is a bar in the kitchen. And a cosy dining area.
The bathroom is modern.
Through authentic sliding doors with stained-glass you get to the bedroom that is decorated in a peaceful atmosphere.

Alkmaar is above all Holland's cheese town. There's a famous cheesemarket every Friday. The season runs from March to September. The cheesemarket takes place between 10.00 and 14.00. Cheeses are then sold by dealers on a clap of hands.
Pay a visit to one of the most beautiful and historical parts of the country. The city is not only popular for it cheese market there is more. For example you can take canal boat tour and visit places like De Waag (Weighing House). The beautiful wooden house dates back to 1557. Also you shouldn't miss the historical sights, like the national Biermuseum (De Boom), the different windmills spread around the city and many more.
The city centre of Alkmaar is also great for shopping, there's a large variety of shops for everyone. There are many cosy and good restaurants to be found, we can give you good suggestions. And last but not least the nightlife in the city is nice & cosy.

The apartment is called KNus. It's 60m2 and it is in the city centre.
It is located in an old mansion from 1900, it had many different destinations, it's even been a pub!

Karlijn is a great host and nice person. The location is very good or people loving to be close at a City Centre. We are not used to road noise so we had our problems at the beginning o our trip to Alkmaar.

Near to the city centre!

A wonderful apartment in the perfect serene setting in Alkmaar with excellent connections to Amsterdam. Has everything that you need for a very comfortable stay. Hosts were excellent with communication and even allowed for an early check in and late check out. Would highly recommend and return again! Thank you!

We had a great stay and Karlijn met us to show us everything when we arrived. Everything was clean and we had everything we needed. We were 4 adults and the sofa bed was a good size for 2 adults. It was less than 5 mins walk to the centre, we parked across the canal and used the foot ferry though it only runs till 5.30pm (9.30pm Thurs). Would definitely stay again! Thanks Karlijn :-)
