Very good time in Haarlem in a so lovely house and a typical neighborhood. Very good place to visit Amsterdam and its surroundings.
Our family's stay at this house was a dream. We were 3 adults and 2 biggish kids and we were very comfortable in every way. Furnished with creativity and loving care (email hidden)ly neighborhood of families with kids and kitties on every block, the house is a 7 minute walk to grocery shopping and a couple of miles out of downtown Haarlem. Baart and Suus generously loaned us their family bicycles and we rented an extra in town for a great price. This made getting around Haarlem a breeze. We even got out to the beach and a local lake for swimming! While biking in Amsterdam seemed a bit intimidating, in Haarlem it was great. There are amazing walking trails just across the way. Amsterdam is easily accessible by train, but there is quite a bit to do in Haarlem--Baart and Suus were super helpful with suggestions, maps, brochures, etc. They were always so easy to communicate with and reachable during our stay.
I didn't want to leave!
