Perfect. Just perfect. Lovely hostess and a lovely stay
Marieke is a great host - she left us a bottle of wine and easter eggs which was much appreciated. Her place is lovely - the bedroom and bathroom are small but fine. The location is great - very close to the station and lots of restaurants and cafes. Only downside is you can only park for free for three hours and have to change the parking pass every three hours. There is however free parking about a 10 - 15 minute walk from her place. Also no TV but we were ok without one. Great place to stay when visiting Amsterdam.
Het was gemakkelijk om afspraken met Marieke te maken. Het welkom was hartelijk. Het was een leuk ingericht huis, we hebben heerlijk geslapen. Het is ongeveer een kilometer lopen naar het centrum van Haarlem, wat inderdaad een erg leuke stad is. Het Dolhuis op 300 m is een aanrader.
Marieke was a wonderful host. She was very helpful and answered quickly.
She also left us a bottle whine for the evening, which was quite nice : )
Her two cats are lovely, but we didn't like, that the cats normally have access to the whole apartment (especially kitchen and bedroom). The apartment was nice, the living room and the garden were wonderful, the kitchen was fully equipped and also had an espresso machine. The bed was comfortable.The bathroom wasn't that nice as you would think because of the photo and kind of old fashioned. It was very cold in there (especially the ground) and the shower only had a plughole on the ground, which isn't that ideal.
The neighbourhood was very quiet and you can park in front of the apartment with a permit card, which you have to reposition every 3h.
You walk about 5 min to central station and beyond that the city centre begins. Haarlem is very nice and we enjoyed it a lot (also visited Amsterdam, but we think Haarlem is much more beautiful).
All in all it was a nice weekend in a very nice city.
We stayed two nights at Marieke's flat. And I really must say that we had a good time. Marieke was a great host. She was very kind and helpful: she prepared two maps for us, some coffee and sweets to welcome us and a bottle of wine for the evening. Already before our arrival Marieke offered her help to find some activities suiting our interests. She recommened a nice beach area and helped us to find parking possibilities for the car in Haarlem and near the beach as well.
It was a great experience to meet her.
The appartement was as bright and cosy as the description says. Due to the weather we were able to sit in the garden while having a cup of coffee. We loved to be there and we loved the cats' company.
So I would like to recommend Marieke highly.
Marieke is een great person and a terrific host. She will make sure you have a great time if you decide to stay at her place.
Marieke is a wonderful person full of energy and ideas. Her house is very nice as is her tent. Easy to organise things with.
