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 had such a comfortable and pleasant time at Rob and Marion's for 3 nights. We did get a little lost trying to find the house, but the locals in Haarlem are insanely friendly - we were offered help by 6 people in the space of 20 minutes and with the help of these people, found the place. We arrived before check in and were greeted by the very friendly Rob. Just be aware of the stairs, as the room is on the top floor and if you have big suitcases like we did, it may be a struggle. We were left to do our own thing, with access to the kitchen, fridge etc. Rob and Marion were extremely helpful in suggesting places to go and how to get there too. They also called us a taxi to get us to the airport for our flight. The room was a perfect size, as too the bathroom we shared with them.
The area of Haarlem is so quite, peaceful and breathtaking. You will appreciate this soon after you go into the Amsterdam centre. Their house is about a 20 minute scenic walk to the main Haarlem Station (where you can catch the train to Amsterdam, a day pass/return to Amsterdam from Haarlem is €9.20).
We highly recommend doing the Free a walking tour with 360 adventures when you go into Amsterdam, you get a great feel for the city and cover a lot. Another must see is the Corrie Ten Boom house in Haarlem, which is another version of the Anna Frank House (which was sold out for us). The guide was so knowledgeable and funny, definitely a high light our trip.
We also had a wonderful time in Haarlem. The town is great and the distances to Amsterdam and the sea are optimal. Marion and Rob are so what of pleasant hosts, as there is nothing to complain about. The self-evident, looseness and openness that let them radiate hosted a think if you do not enjoy it even had to open his home for guests. Many thanks to both for this good experience

Auch wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit in Haarlem. Das Städtchen ist super und die Entfernungen nach Amsterdam und zum Meer sind optimal. Marion und Rob sind so was von angenehme Gastgeber, da gibt es gar nichts auszusetzen. Die Selbstverständlichkeit, Lockerheit und Offenheit die sie als Gastgeber ausstrahlen lassen einen nachdenken ob man nicht Freude daran hätte selbst sein Heim für Gäste zu öffnen. Vielen Dank an beide für diese gute Erfahrung

Auch unser Zimmer war sehr sauber, schön und gemütlich.
Haarlem ist eine wunderschöne Stadt und dabei viel entspannter als Amsterdam.
Wir hatten einen tollen Urlaub!

Das war unser erster Urlaub mit Wimdu. Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen.Wir wurden sehr gastfreundlich empfangen, Marion hat uns nach der Begrüßung gleich zu Kaffee und Kuchen eingeladen.Das Zimmer war sehr geräumig,sauber,zweckmäßig und gemütlich eingerichtet.Die steilen Treppen waren für uns kein Problem,uns wurde beim Tragen der Koffer geholfen. Zur Erkundung des Ortes wurden uns viele hilfreiche Tipps gegeben. Wir haben uns gefühlt wie bei Freunden.
Ein perfekter Urlaub, vielen Dank dafür.

Away from the hustle and bustle, yet close to the center - 18 minutes by local train to Amsterdam Central Station - and every 10 minutes. That fits well because parks in Holland is generally only for lottery winners. This also applies to Haarlem - but Marion and Rob know as a parking ticket free zone, they like to show the guests. The accommodation is good, just with a bathroom, which use a room all residents together. The room beneath their roof can be reached via a relatively steep stairs - for older guests who are fit on the road might not, perhaps somewhat problematic. Otherwise all the best. Bicycle Distances: 5 minutes to the center, 5 minutes to the train station. 30 minutes to the beach by the Dunes State Park.
Abseits von Trubel und Hektik, und dennoch zentrumsnah - 18 Minuten mit dem Vorortzug nach Amsterdam Hauptbahnhof - und das alle 10 Minuten. Das passt bestens, da Parken in Holland generell nur etwas für Lotto-Gewinner ist. Das trifft auch auf Haarlem zu - aber Marion und Rob kennen da eine parkscheinfreie Zone, die sie den Gästen gern zeigen. Die Unterkunft ist gut, ein Zimmer halt mit Bad, das alle Hausbewohner gemeinsam nutzen. Das Zimmer unter'm Dach ist über relativ steile Treppen zu erreichen - für ältere Gäste, die vielleicht nicht mehr so fit unterwegs sind, möglicherweise etwas problematisch. Sonst alles bestens. Fahrrad-Entfernungen: 5 Minuten zum Zentrum, 5 Minuten zum Bahnhof. 30 Minuten zum Strand durch den Dünen-Nationalpark.
Marion is very nice, is fun to talk with her, she is a person who knows very well refer guests to visit wonderful places like keukenoff the old Haarlem, Amsterdam etc .... and above all towards transport for travel that we enjoyed. his kindness, his smile, his discussions was like friends for years so it was spontaneous. only good memories of this trip! Thank you
Marion est très agréable, on prend plaisir de parler avec elle, c'est une personne qui sait très bien aiguiller ses hôtes pour visiter de merveilleux endroits comme le keukenoff, le vieux Haarlem, Amsterdam etc.... et surtout diriger vers les transports pour les déplacements ce que nous avons apprécié. sa gentillesse, son sourire, ses discussions on se serait cru amies depuis des années tellement c'était spontané. que des bons souvenirs de ce voyage! Merci
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!
