About our home

Hi everyone!

We live in a lovely wooden house to the water, designed by award winning arcitect Abe Bonnema. In 2014 we totally renovated it to match our dreams. Now we would like to invite you to stay in our house to enjoy the beautiful and peaceful surroundings.

Our house has a spacious light living with a very high ceiling and vide. Which makes our house so special and unique. Our kitchen with island and bar has everything you need like a quooker, combi oven and dishwasher. The two french doors take you to the outside with a sunny terrace by the water. Where you will find a lounge bank, dining table, firepit and a bbq. Because of the ideal location (S-W) you'll have the summer sun from around 9.00 till 20.30. You can also relax at the front of our house if you like more shadow.

The staircase leads us up at the first floor to an interior balcony which overhangs a part the main floor, and allows the access of the three bedrooms (master bedroom, bunk bed (2x 90X200), 1x 90x 200) and and our fantastic bathroom with rainshower. You can park your car underneith our carport. Use our boat to sail in the neighbourhood and take our bikes to discover the city of Alkmaar, Bergen or cycle to the beaches and the Schoorl Dunes National Parc.

Would you like to stay:

- In a typical historical Dutch town even older than Amsterdam and famous for its cheese market?
- In a very special renovated wooden house by the water?
- Close by the beach (52 km long North Sea coast), national parc and a lot of cities like Amsterdam, Haarlem, Hoorn.

Where is it?


Our house is one of 75 timber frame houses, built by the Dutch architect Abe Bonnema, which form a little village in the north of Alkmaar. The neighbourhood is quiet, child friendly with little traffic.

- The beautiful old city of Alkmaar has impressive monuments and looks like 'Little Amsterdam' with its canals. For years the city has been entitled to call itself one of the best shopping cities in the Netherlands. A cheese market is organised here every Friday in summer. In and around Alkmaar you can see a lot of old windmills.

- A shopping centre with a lot of grocery stores, bakery, butcher, fishshop, restaurant and coffee/ lunchbars are a five minutes walk away.

- The railway station Alkmaar Noord is nearby (12 minutes walk, 3 minutes by car).
Here you can take the train, which will take you to Amsterdam in 40 minutes.
- Alkmaar is 15 min from the beach of the North Sea

- The nearby villages Bergen and Schoorl offer tranquility, natural beauty, beaches and the highest and widest stretch of dunes in the country ideal for cycling and walking.
