“Wonderful house, great charming area, very generous hosts who left us a car, close to the beach and Amsterdam”
“A perfect exchange for a dream family vacation This is our first home exchange experience and it was a perfect stay in every ways. Communication with anneloor was perfect. Harlem is a very nice town just 20 minutes from Amsterdam by train and very close to the sea. We had great bike rides in forests and towns, swimming in the sea or in the lakes. We also took advantage of the calm of the house and its environment. This stay is certainly one of our best family trips ... Annelor and her family also took good care of our home. A big thank you for this great discovery! ”
“Nice house in a great area. There were lots of presents on the table (food) when we arrived which was really nice. We could even use the bikes. Our son loved the outdoor area, especially the swing, and the toys in the living room. With kids, especially Babys, all the stairs are a bit tough, but everything else was fine. Totally recommend staying at Anneloors house. ”
“We had a lovely few days at Anneloor's home in Haarlem. The weather wasn't great but that didn't stop us exploring the town and checking out Anneloor's recommendations including the fantastic toy shop! We also did a rainy cycle ride to the beach as Anneloor kindly let us use their bikes. The house is near to some great parks, shops and is very convenient for catching the train into Amsterdam. Would definitely recommend and we'd love to come back!”
“We had a fabulous week at Anneloor's house. Haarlem is a wonderful, chilled out City & the house is in a lovely neighbourhood. It's only 15 minutes by train into the centre of Amsterdam but only 7 miles from the beach, so we had the best of both worlds! The house is spacious & well equipped & Anneloor couldn't have been more helpful. Thanks very much, we had a great time & would definitely recommend it!”
“Harleem is a lovely city, very accessible and lots to do around it. We had a great week there, we didn't even go to Amsterdam but had lots to do. The national park a short bike ride is lovely and lots of walks and swimming in the lakes and the coastline is really nice too. Anneloor and Sem's house is great, particularly for kids, so many toys which our two loved. Anneloor made lots of really helpful videos about the house so we knew what to expect. We had a great holiday, thanks so much! ”
“We are really happy to have Anneloor and her family at home. They are a charming family. Everything was really easy! They take a lot of care of our home, garden, plants (this is a very warm summer, so they needed a little bit more care) and also chickens!!! And they leave the house so clean and tidy! We will not hesitate to swap with them again! Thank you family!!!!”
“Anneloor was very friendly to deal with ahead of their visit to our home. She was clear about their family needs and helpful with arrangements. Even though we were not able to visit Aneloor's home in Amsterdam (it was a point swap) she was very kind to offer flexible arrangements. Aneloor's family respected our home and left it in good order. We would be very happy to have them return and wish we could have met them.”
Where is it?
Our house is very close to the city centre (you can walk it) in a green naighbourhood. We live across a very beautifull citypark, which is called De Kweektuin. There are two natural playgrounds, small animals, botanical garden around an ancient ruin of a Spanish castle and tropical greenhouses with turtles and fishes. There is also a great greenhouse-restaurant "Het Kweekcafé" where children can play and where you can buy all kinds of design made by artisans from Haarlem. There is even a hairdresser. Everyhting is circulair and klimate-responsible.
