About Charming House
Rudy is from The Netherlands and Bea is from Australia. Therefore, travelling has become a way of life for us in order to stay together and be a part of each other's families. Together, we travel the world, trying to experience and appreciate this world for all its wonders and wonderful inhabitants. Thankfully, by renting as a vacation rental, this helps us to cover the mortgage payments and facilitate this lifestyle.

I don’t even know where to begin. Rudy and Bea were tremendous the entire time from booking through check out. The house was even more than I expected. It had everything you could have wanted. Haarlem was one of the most amazing cities. Biking was awesome and the people were even better. Many people think Amsterdam, I would suggest think Haarlem and Charming House. You won’t find a better spot.
Thank you for your kind review. It would be our pleasure to host you again. All the best!
Our Charming House stay was refreshing and relaxing. Bea and Rudy have arranged a perfect getaway with all the amenities and comforts you could ask for. For us the location was perfect for day trips to Amsterdam and The Hague. Be ready for the climb to the second floor and anyone with limited mobility should not book this location, but we found the steps fun and added an authentic feel of being a temporary local. If I was traveling to this area I would stay here again. The added feature of the washer and dryer were very much appreciated. Bea's directions and information were clear and complete. Thanks for the wonderful week, Jeff & Terresa
It was a pleasure to host you and we would love to do so again if you return to Haarlem. All the best!
Location is great for use of public transportation and visiting points if interest in Haarlem. Garden is a nice extra. Bikes are useable, we preferred renting for long rides. Bathroom is upstairs. Shower gets floor very wet, so use towels to trap water in shower. Also bathroom window is vented for ventulation. Keep bathroom doors closed or the upstairs becomes very cold in winter. Large refrigator was nice. Washer and dryer are great extras. Enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for taking the time to make a review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at Charming House.
We have not personally had issues with the bathroom becoming too wet, however we do also provide bathmats and a squeegee to assist in preventing this occurrence.
Super gemütliche Wohnung mit allem was man braucht! Sehr wohnlich und sauber
Liebevoll eingerichtete Wohnung mit allem möglichen Zeug für einen tollen Urlaub. Bea und Rudy sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Gute Lage! Einziger Punkt, der nicht ganz so toll ist: Die Treppe. Diese ist wirklich der Horror! Nichts für ältere Menschen! Zwar überall mit Griffen/Führungen ausgestattet, aber trotzdem eine harte Nummer und nicht jedermanns Sache!
Vielen Dank, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben, eine Bewertung abzugeben. Wir freuen uns, dass Sie Ihren Aufenthalt genossen haben. Unsere Treppen sind traditionell und steil. Aus diesem Grund empfehlen wir Ihnen, die Fotos zu konsultieren, um vor der Buchung eine fundierte Entscheidung zu treffen. Wir hatten jedoch auch viele Gäste und Kinder im Charming House, die sie nicht als Problem empfanden. Schöne Grüße.
Great and really charming flat in the heart of Haarlem.
The cute and cosy flat offers all you need for successful city holidays like wlan, bikes, a washing machine and a small lovely garden. We really liked the hospitality of the owners. They welcomed us with music and sweets and always answered our questions immediately. People with fear of heights should maybe not book the flat. The stairway to the first floor are very steep! :-D
Thank you for your kind words. It would be a pleasure to host you again. And yes, this is why the stairs are mentioned before booking, so people can make their own informed choices. However, we have had many families with children and senior guests stay at Charming House without issue.
Haarlem is perfect for a romantic getaway as well as partygoers and makes an excellent base for visitors to Amsterdam and other surrounding areas, as well as being a great destination in itself, with everything you could want at your doorstep.
Haarlem is a beautiful cobble-stoned city, 15 minutes by train from the centre of Amsterdam (with trains leaving every 10-15 minutes) and with a direct connection to Schiphol airport. The popular beach village of Zandvoort is also only 15 minutes by train from the city centre and Haarlem is very central for day trips throughout the Netherlands with excellent road and train systems and extensive bicycle routes.
The coastal villages of Zandvoort and Bloemendaal are a short bike ride away and the scenery through the dunes is very picturesque.
Haarlem is the provincial capital of North Holland, located on the banks of the Spaarne river and is a relaxed city, full of picturesque canals, a maze of narrow medieval streets, hidden gardens, quality restaurants and many of the best dutch museums. The city is also a historical beer brewing centre has a lively culture and active nightlife.
A one minute walk from the house will lead you to ‘Kleine Houtstraat', a pretty boutique shopping street voted to be the best in The Netherlands many times.
