Nice Stay in the Suburbs of Holland!
We had a pleasant stay at Bernice`s house. We were 5 people: 2 couples and 1 individual. The room and bed in the individual room were a bit tight for an adult, and we had to share 1 shower; but we made it work. If there are no disruptions on the trainline, you could easily be Amsterdam Central in 20 min, after a 5 min walk to the train from the house. The house is also a few bus stops away from the beach, which was a fantastic find! Bernice was super responsive and readily available to support on all requests. Recommended for a short group stay!
This home was absolutely perfect for my family (2 adults, 3 older teenagers)! I especially appreciated the 5-8 minute walk to the train station, busses, and grocery store. We used the kitchen quite a bit and found all essential supplies readily available. We were also grateful for a very nice washer and dryer to accommodate a couple loads of laundry.
I hope to be back in the future!
Attractive property in a nice neighbourhood
This was our first trip to Holland and Bernice made us feel very welcome in her home. There was plenty of space for the four of us and we enjoyed staying in such a creative place. We especially liked congregating in the kitchen/diner and wandering outside into a pretty garden with sofas. The house is well located for public transport and we travelled between Haarlem and Amsterdam and visited Marken,The Hague and Zandvoort. We walked alongside the canal at Heemstede to Haarlem and got to know the area well. Our overall impression was very positive, and the Dutch people we encountered were friendly and good-natured and willing to help. We made good use of the supermarket about 10 minutes walk from the house. Staying in this property was a good experience and we have happy memories. Thank you Bernice for your hospitality!

Beautifully finished house in lovely quiet and friendly location
With four kids in tow, 3 of whom are teenagers we took a bit of a gamble on Heemstede but their first reactions said it all - "wow, what a lovely house!". And it was! There was enough space for everyone to chill out and not get in each other's way and (most important!) a decent wi-fi signal throughout, including the beautifully landscaped garden.
Transport links are great if you don't want to use the car; follow the advice in the house manual to download the 9292 app, and if you use the links to the google maps that Bernice & Danny have prepared you'll find everything that you could possibly need with ease - why isn't everyone as thoughtful as this?
We used the dutch bikes, but have to admit that not having conventional brakes can be a bit daunting at first for those not used to them! But we discovered the joy's of cycling in North Holland and now understand why every house has bicycles outside!
We loved it, and can thoroughly recommend.
Beautiful family home in excellent location
We had a wonderful family holiday staying in this beautiful family home which is in a lovely quiet area with great transport links and fabulous local shops and restaurants. The house is spacious and cool and also has a great outdoor space. Everything we could possibly have needed for our stay was available to us. The train station is a few minutes walk from the house and its 20 minutes on a direct train to Amsterdam. The trains run regularly throughout the day and night into Amsterdam. The buses are also reliable and cheap with Zandvoort beach a 20 minute bus ride away which is worth visiting. Bernice and Danny were wonderful hosts, quick to respond to queries before we arrived and offer advice on travel etc. and they met us on arrival and again on departure. They left a comprehensive manual with everything we needed to know, top marks on that. Overall a five star experience staying here and we would love to come back!
Thank you for the lovely review! So nice to hear that you all enjoyed it! We hope to see you again sometimes! Warm greetings from Bernice and Danny
Wir hatten eine super Zeit im Haus von Bernice und Danny, ganz herzlichen Dank dafür! Das Haus ist wie beschrieben. In den Räumen standen frische Blumen, es gab frisches Brot und Käse und einen tollen Apfelkuchen zur Begrüßung. Die Betten sind ordentlich und nicht durchgelegen. Die Lage ist fast perfekt. Zentral und super per Rad in Richtung Haarlem oder Strand. Leider ist ein Zimmer zur Hauptstraße raus und sehr laut. Nichts für empfindliche Schläfer. Zum Haus gehörten auch drei Fahrräder, die wir sehr gerne genutzt haben. Wunderschön ist auch der Garten nach hinten raus. Wir würden uneinschränkt das Haus empfehlen und kommen gerne wieder 😃
