Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I can't say enough great things about Santi and Tamara. Although Tamara was away and we didn't get a chance to meet, her husband Santi was the most amazing and personable host. Even the other guests in the B and B were friendly as well. We had great conversations and an evening of traditional Indian cuisine, of which I'm craving for right now. The room was cosy and the bed was very comfortable as well. I will definitely return to chez Santi and Tamara on my next visit to Holland.

  • The location is perfect, only 5 min walk from the Alkmaar train station. Tama and her husband are nice people. Alkmaar is a nice small city, clean and lovely. More than just cheese factory!!!

  • NL is an amzingly beautiful country.And if you have a host like Tamara, then its icing on the cake. We had a great experience staying at Tamara's and we definitely would like to visit her place again. One cannot ask for a better host than Tamara. We were whole heartedly welcomed by Tamara and she showed us our room which was cosy & beautiful as shown in pics. She gave us useful tips and helped us in best possible way considering we had a small kid with us. Both Tamara and her husband Mr Shanti are lovely and friendly people and the 2 days we spent at her residence was like home away from home. We would definitely recommend Tamara's place to enjoy the hospitality for anyone visiting NL. We hope we meet her again in future and would like to welcome her to our place whenever she visits India.

  • Habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt. Da Tamara drei Zimmer vermietet, waren auch andere Gäste dort. Die Gespräche beim Frühstück waren sehr ausgedehnt. Ich habe Leute kennengelernt, die ich so sicher nicht so schnell getroffen hätte.
    Jederzeit wieder.

  • Tamara and her husband Shanti are very friendly, helpfull, interested and interesting peolpe. You can rent bikes for 5€ the day by Tamara every time. The flat was clean, comfortable and beautifull. It`s only five minutes to the center of Alkmaar and to the Central Station. The beach is only 30minutes from Tamara and the landscape is very beautifull, especially when you drive with the bike. It`s was a very great time in Alkmaar.

    They were also very patient, answering all our questions regards to travelling, places to visit and how to get there etc. (and we did have a lot of questions!

    The room was truly cozy and in a very good location.

I enjoy travelling but also receiving guests. Me and my husband we are passionate about cycling, spending time in nature, cooking and baking, listening to music, reading and gardening. One of the highlights in travel experience was doing a 3 months bicycle tour through the Amazon (Suriname, Guyana, Brazil). We love to exchange travel stories and adventures with our guests and are curious to hear about your experiences. One of my mottos:Leave a place I visit more beautiful than I have found it when I arrived.
