Wonderful house in Alkmaar

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a wonderful weekend in Alkmaar. Such a lovely town where we felt we experienced Holland more than ever before. The house is situated on a lovely street with views to the canal. Vivi couldn't have been more helpful & the house is everything you want in a rental accommodation. Very clean, modern, well equipped & so close to the centre of the town. Claire & Colin

Fantastic Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home from which to explore Alkmaar and Amsterdam. We loved how much space the two floors provided our family - the baby could sleep upstairs while we enjoyed the canal view at night from the cozy bench outside the house.

The location of the house was perfect - a 15 minute walk to the train station and only seconds away from the heart of Alkmaar.

The house was very well appointed - we had everything we needed, and then some! We also appreciated the book of information about the house and the surrounding areas.

When we were originally looking to book our vacation, we thought we'd stay in Amsterdam. Eventually we decided to stay in Alkmaar and we couldn't have been happier! The house was located on a quiet street (though you do see lots of people walking and biking by!), and the town seemed so friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Alkmaar!

La casa perfecta, su ubicacion inmejorable, estas en el centro pero todo muy tranquilo, por la noche no oyes nada, las tiendas a cuatro pasos, los propietarios encantadores, ademas Alkmaar esta muy bien situada y estas como mucho a una hora de coche de todos los sitios de mas interes turistico, Amsterdam a 30 minutos en tren, y la estacion de la casa a 10 minutos andando, muy recomendable, para nosotros que somos cuatro ha sido una semana inolvidable gracias Vivi.

Your holiday house is located in the city, you walk into the center for shopping, eating good food or drink. Pretty as a picture!

If you anticipate the front door you walk into the main shopping streets of Alkmaar. If this road goes through you will come out naturally in the Waagplein. Here is from April to September every Friday morning the cheese market, even here there are many restaurants and bars. The streets around the Waagplein are also many nice restaurants.

The area is beautiful to ride through the dunes to the beach or by train to Amsterdam (30 minutes). A wonderful place to enjoy the natural beauty that this area offers.

Other Activities: shopping, touristic areas

Golf: In the area there are many golf courses. The one nearest by is a beautiful old golf course named Sluispolder. But in the area within 30 km's there are about 8 golf courses. All unique with there difficulties.
