The space

You are welcome in my Bed & Breakfast the Mermaid in Almere, near to Amsterdam!

Three things guests liked about my B&B:
1. nicely decorated and super comfy beds
2. excellent public transport
3. personal touch

Why guests didn't choose for my B&B
1. not suitable to combine with Amsterdam night life after 2 am because there is no public transport between 2-6 am
2. costs of a return ticket by train to Amsterdam are € 12,90
3. shared bathroom

Do yourself a favor and book your stay here! This place was wonderful! Caroline was wonderful! Everything was wonderful! The home is exactly as pictured, yes it is outside of Amsterdam, but I enjoyed that because it is so easy to get into the city by train. It wasn't inconvenient at all. I definitely enjoyed the privacy as well. The town is quaint as is the home. Would definitely stay here again, wish I could have stayed longer. When i come back this will be the place I'll stay!

This is a great place to stay, Caroline has decorated his house like a boutique Hotel, everywhere you will find a wonderful decoration. The room is great, the bed is perfect for a nice rest after long day at the downtown. Caroline is very friendly and gives you all the information to enjoy Amsterdam. I highly recommend to stay in her place.

Great Airbnb; the host is wonderful. We have had great Airbnb s throughout Europe but this one was over the top! The only trade off is it is not in Amsterdam but easy walk and train ride into city! We would recommend this Airbnb!

Caroline was very accommodating to our needs and very pleasant. Easy to find and a short train ride to the city center but in a quiet area so very relaxing. She has a lovely garden in the back which is beautiful and nice for a morning coffee! On a scale of 1-10 I would rate this one an 11! Thanks so much Caroline! Darrell

We absolutely LOVED Caroline. She picked us up from the train station. Her home was lovely and our bedroom was perfect. She left a bottle of wine, chocolate, and nuts out so you feel like you are staying in a very nice hotel, but even better! She gave us great ideas of things to do in Amsterdam and in Almere. After making us a delicious breakfast each morning, she would sit and drink her coffee with us, where we engaged in many interesting conversations. Caroline is a gracious and caring host, I can only hope we can come back in the future.

Caroline, was an excellent host. Her B&B was just lovely and extremely clean. She really knows how to treat her guest. The location was excellent, only 20-minutes away from Amsterdam Central. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality Caroline!
