The experience me and my boyfriend had at Caroline's was great from the very beginnig. She fetched us up with her scooter at the train station and discussed our plans for our stay over tea and cookies.
Carolie's house is very cozy and bright, the design is very sweet and coherent. We stayed in the room "Poseidon", the bigger one out of two. We had a big, comfortable bed, a cupboard for our clothes, a desk, a TV with DVD recorder, and two small tables where we found some water, juice, tea, coffee, whine and snacks (we could use it all for free!). The room looks ecxactely like the pictures Caroline provides on Airbnb. :D
We loved the breakfast, Caroline's positive attitude and her two cats. Also, the time for breakfast was not set, so we had breakfast at any time that we needed (even in the afternoon on the 1st of January :D).
I recommend Caroline's B&B for anybody, who wants to visit Amsterdam and/or the other cities around it, espacially couples. Thank you for a great time, Caroline! :D
Caroline was very nice and sweet. She made me and my boyfriend feel home. Everything in the house was clean, lovely and cozy! The bed was also very comfortable, the breakfast she makes was very lovely, everything was just perfect. I am really glad that I choose to stay there it was a good decision! It was my very first bread and breakfast and it was an amazing experience! I would love to come back.
Caroline is really a nice and helpful host. My sister and I love her and her house very much. It is very comfortable to stay here and the surrounded area is very peaceful and safe. The girl who travel alone do not need to be afraid. The breakfasts are also very nice too, if I can go to Amsterdam once more again, I will visit Caroline again.
Caroline, when you come to Hong Kong, you should remember find my sister and I. Wish you all the best. =]
According to me, B & B of Caroline is the finest in the world of B&B. She is a wonderful and enthusiastic lady who likes to welcome and to look after the guest (email hidden)e offers a big breakfast(free) in such a way that you feel , you are at home.
Each and every thing in this house is perfect at it's place. Also it's walkable distance from Almere Centrum station.
If you are planning to go to The Netherlands then your first choice should be Caroline's B & B.

My stay with Caroline was absolutely perfect! It's a perfect place to stay for someone looking to be a little bit away from the city, but still close enough to get there easily by tram.
The rooms are spotless, the host is wonderful and the breakfasts you get in the morning are divine!
N'hésitez pas un instant à choisir la maison de Caroline pour votre voyage!
Vous serez accueilli avec un grand sourire et beaucoup de douceur.
Le magnifique jardin vous apportera le calme et la sérénité en plus des fruits délicieux que vous dégusterez surement au petit déjeuner.
En plus de découvrir un joli pays, vous rencontrerez une belle personne alors n'hésitez pas!
Caroline made my first stay with airbnb in her BNB to a wonderful experience. The rooms are lovely decorated and clean, like in the pictures; And the breakfast is fantastic and the neighbourhood is quiet, so you can relax and enjoy the BNB. Caroline is very cordial and you feel that she loves hosting and helping her guests, such a perfect hospitality. The atmosphere in the BNB is warm and you can easily walk (ca. 15 Min.) to the train station to ride into Amsterdam in less than half an hour.
