|Address||Jan Nieuwenhuijzenstraat, 2013 ZA Haarlem, Netherlands|
|Property type||Private room|
|Response time||A few hours|
For us our house is a place where we can relax, be with our family, meet many friends, and have long dinners and good talk together. We shared our house by house-exchange and couchsurfing and love to meet people from different countries and cultures.
Our house is a big city house with a small, cosy garden with a big tree and enough place to relax if the weather is nice.
We have a small but convenient kitchen which can be used on request.
Your sleeping room is on the second floor of the house. (The stairs in dutch houses are quite steep!) It is a big room (20m2) and the bed is 1.60 x 2.00 long. If you are with 3 or 4 people, it is occasionally possible to be hosted in a second big room on the same floor. Ask us for possibilities and prices. Bedding and towels are provided, so no need of taking towels with you! On the first floor is the (shared) bathroom, with a shower, bath and toilet. The bathroom is a bit “old-fashioned” and it’s our next “project” to renovate.
If you stay longer then 3 nights, we can change your bedding if you want.
Towels can be changed as often as you want!
You have your own wardrobe, where you can put your clothes and where you will find more towels.
Also there is a hairdryer, two bathrobes and two pair of slippers at your disposal.
On your room there is a water-cooker and a coffe-maker. Tea and coffee are for free.
There is free Wifi.
Our house is a non-smoking area. Smokers can use the garden.
Parking your car for free is possible. You can park in an area which is a few streets behind our house. Parking shortly in front of our house (3 hours) is also possible, but after 3 hours, you will have to turn the parking-card to a new time, so that's a bit of a hussle and we advice the other possibility.
- We have a female cat, named "Tarzan"
- The house is on walking distance of the city centre
- In the center you will find musea (Frans Hals), beautiful old dutch houses, the old townhall, the Bavo-church, the famous "hofjes", and many parks
- The national park “Kennemerduinen” is on bicycle distance
- The beach (Bloemendaal at Sea and Zandvoort) is on bicycle distance as well
- Supermarket around the corner
- A “plaza” with trees, is at the corner of the street
- Amsterdam center is 15 minutes by train
- Haarlem is proclaimed to be the best “shopping city” of the Netherlands
We are pleased to give you any information about renting a bicycle, taking the train or the bus to the beach, visiting musea and old area's in Haarlem, Amsterdam etc.
House rulesWe ask you to treat our house and us, the family who lives in it with the same respect as we will treat you.
No parties or drugs in the house, no "extra" guests without consulting us before and no "extreme" noise if you come home (very) late.
But coming home late at night is not a problem, because we will give you your own key of the house.

Reviews of this property
We were really looking forward to our trip and our expectations were completely fulfilled. Being guests in such a lovely home with an interesting and lovely couple living in it has been a wonderful experience and we enjoyed our stay very much.
When we arrived, Marion greeted us, told and showed us everything we needed to know patiently. After our first night we met Rob and the (sleeping) family cat and had tea and a great conversation about everything you could imagine.
Besides of having a wonderful trip to Haarlem, Amsterdam and Zandvoort, we really had a great time staying in Marions and Robs house and if we ever think about coming back, we definitely think of these two. Until then, don't hesitate booking their place, because it was great and we really recommend it.
Thank you again, Marion and Rob. It was a pleasure :)
Rob and Marion are great hosts - very friendly and helpful. Our room was absolutely the pictures. However, it should be mentioned that the stairs are very steep in Holland.
Haarlem is just 20 minutes away from Amsterdam and is still a very cozy and friendly town.
We can absolutely recommend and will definitely come back soon!
Rob und Marion sind super Gastgeber - sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Unser Zimmer entsprach absolut den Bildern. Man sollte jedoch erwähnen, dass die Treppen in Holland sehr steil sind.
Haarlem liegt gerade mal 20 Minuten von Amsterdam entfernt und ist trotzdem ein sehr gemütliches und sympathisch Städtchen.
Wir können es absolut weiterempfehlen und werden sicherlich bald wieder kommen!
Very good location in Haarlem, just a short stroll from the city centre.
Spacious room on 2nd floor with bathroom on 1st floor. It was like staying at home. Rob gave us a warm welcome and we found all the information we needed for our stay in our room.
The room was also equipped with a coffee and tea maker for a good start in the morning.
We can definitely recommend staying with Rob and Marion
We stayed at Marion and Rob's for 5 days and from the moment we arrived we felt welcome. The room was perfect and there was everything we needed!
Rob and Marion are very sweet, open people and we enjoyed their company when we were together. We had a nice evening together with good food and nice conversations.
If we're going back to Haarlem/Amsterdam, we'll definitely stay at their place again!
Marion es una anfitriona increíble. Coincidimos poco con ella puesto que mi amiga y yo nos pasábamos el día fuera conociendo Haarlem y Amsterdam.
La habitación es muy acojedora, ideal para descansar despues del cansado dia turismo, la temperatura muy agradable y la cama inmejorable, sin mencionar el café y los tés de los que dispones gratuitamente cortesía de Marion.
Sin duda cuando vuelva a Amsterdam volveré a contactar con Marion :)
It was a very good trip in Haarlem, the city is so nice and very close to Amsterdam so it's perfect to visit these 2 cities.
Marion and Rob are very friendly and open-minded, it was a pleasure to have a drink with them for example, and to exchange about our different cultures.
Moreover, they gave us a lot of good advice to visit Haarlem and Amsterdam (train, buses, restaurants ...). We really enjoyed our trip thanks to these numerous advice.
Regarding the room and the house, it was really tidy, clean and nothing was missing to feel so comfortable.
So, Marion and Rob, thank you very much for your hospitality during these few days!!
Marion et Rob sont des hôtes parfaits ,ils sont prévenants ,gentils sans être envahissants .
Chambre très agréable et le petit plus de Marion (peignoirs de bain , chausson )
En bref très cocooning !! Nous avons adoré loger chez eux .
Situation géographique parfaite pour visiter Amsterdam et Harlem qui est très beau . Bisous à vous Marion et Rob et merci pour tout.
A recommander !!!
Marion und Rob sind sehr offene, herzliche und freundliche Gastgeber. In unserem liebevoll eingerichtetem Zimmer haben wir uns sofort pudelwohl gefühlt. Haarlem ist ein sehr interessantes Städtchen - zu Fuß ist das Zentrum leicht zu erreichen. Mit dem Bus ist man in einer guten halben Stunde in Amsterdam!
Ebenso auch in Zandvoort am Strand.
Marion und Rob haben uns auch zum Abendessen eingeladen und waren sehr sehr gastfreundlich und hilfsbereit.
Wir kommen wieder !!!

I've spent 6 days with Marion and Rob and it was a wonderful time, unfortunately I couldn't stay longer! Marion and Rob are excellent hosts, they gave me a feeling of being welcome, they were always available for all my questions and gave me a lot of useful hints e.g. about the places around Haarlem and Amsterdam for my daily cycling trips. The house is very nice, the room is very comfortable - I missed nothing. Haarlem is a lively town and is surrounded by a superb landscape.
I thank Marion and Rob for everything, indeed also for the delicious dinner, the nice cometogethers and the help for getting a concert ticket.
Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Urlaub dank Marion und Rob, die freundliche und symphatische Gastgeber sind. Das Haus liegt in ruhiger Lage. Wir wohnten in einem gemütlichen und sauberen Zimmer. Zahlreiche Flyer und persönliche Empfehlungen waren sehr hilfreich bei der Orientierung und Ausflugsplanung.
Können wir auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen!
