Perks for the Parents

This lovely family home near the heart of Haarlem includes a garden with play area, stylish open plan living area and playful children’s bedrooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a family-sized dining area with 2 Stokke kids seats. Along with a stylish and spacious master bedroom, there is a luxurious bathroom with bathtub and shower. The small children’s bedroom is set up for kids but can also sleep an adult, perhaps a nanny or au pair. The open kitchen downstairs makes it easy for kids to play while parents are arranging dinner or relaxing.

Why Kids Love it

This house is full of fun and has plenty of spaces where children can play. There are lots of toys for children under 10 and there is a fab back garden with trampoline, swing and a football goal. Parents can kick back and relax on the benches while kids play. There are 2 children's bedrooms, each with a bunk bed. The boy’s room has a TV and PlayStation, while the other has a play tent. Nearby you’ll find child-friendly places to explore together, including a wood, playground and beach.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights. Parking is for free in front of the house. There is a bus stop very close by (across the street) to bring you to the train station in 5 minutes. From there, it is just 15 minutes by train to Amsterdam Central Station. Near the house there is a supermarket, a bakery and lots of nice child-friendly cafés and restaurants. Car rental is recommended but not essential.

About the Location

The residence is near the centre of Haarlem. Traveling is super easy by bike or by car; from Schiphol Airport by taxi it takes around 20 minutes to reach the property. By public transport (train and bus), it takes around 45 minutes. It is easy from this location to reach Amsterdam (15 minutes by train, 40 minutes by car) and the country’s other key attractions.

The house is set over 2 floors and has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The lower level has a large living room with open kitchen and dining area, plus access to the lovely and green garden. The first floor includes a master bedroom with kingsize bed, and 2 children's bedrooms, both with a bunk bed suitable for ages 3 and up, and a luxurious bathroom with bathtub and shower.

Style Notes

Bright, light and colorful style. This charming family home is decorated with warm colors and playful items. The kids rooms are bright and fresh colors and toys to play with, including an ostrich-topped play tent, while the parents’ bedroom is sleek and comfortable, with a light balcony. We love the kids play space in the back yard and the views from the front towards the canal.

We are a family of 4, Arthur (41), Laura (41), Otto (9) and Filine (7). We have lived in Haarlem since 7 years and really enjoy this! Haarlem is a great city with a nice market and lots of shops, bars and café's and living close to the beach is amazing! We love it and spend a lot of time in the sandhills with the kids.

Visited in August 2018
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely home while visiting Holland in August. The house was charmingly decorated, comfortable, well organized and spotless. The backyard in particular was a huge hit with our 8-year-old twin boys, who would run out in the morning in their pajamas to play on the swings. The house is conveniently located on a pretty, quiet residential block. In the evenings, after a day of excursions (riding bikes from Zuid Keenemerland to Bloemendaal Beach; chartering a boat from Ijmuiden to fish for mackerel; visiting the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam), we would walk from the house to Grote Markt (about a 20 minute stroll) to one of the many restaurants followed by a dessert of waffles and ice cream. The boys also enjoyed playing board games at night and we all slept very well. One of our most relaxing vacations as a family! Laura and Arthur, the owners, were terrific -- warm, responsive and helpful with great suggestions. We would look forward to staying there again!!

Haarlem, The Netherlands

Windmills, wild sand dunes and the country’s best market

This medieval city is just 15 minutes from Amsterdam by train and is full of family-friendly things to do. Start at the Grote Markt on a Saturday, where the country’s finest street market draws in crowds from far and wide, then take a boat tour of the Spaarne River. A cycle trip to the beach via wild and windy sand dunes is another key family-friendly thing to do in Haarlem. And you can’t miss the windmills: Molen (windmill) de Adriaan is said to be one of the best in the country.
