About our home

Our free standing home was completely remodeled in 2011. It features a spacious living, dining and fully equipped kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 4 if you use a crib, a bathroom with bath and separate shower and 2 separate toilets. We have a sunny and large private garden with swing, trampoline and bbq.
We live a 15 minute bike ride from the beach, and the forest and dunes are only a 5 minute walk away. At the same time we are only a 3 minute walk to public transport with frequent trains to Amsterdam (25 minutes), Haarlem, Utrecht and other cities. The neighborhood is friendly and quiet although we are right in the city center with shops and restaurants literally around the corner.
And of course with the international trains from Amsterdam also Paris (4 hours), Brussels (2.5 hours), London (4.5 hours) and other locations in Europe are great visits from our place.

  2. Klaas Jan is a teacher and Bianca works for the Economic Department. We lived in San Francisco for 5 years before moving here 4 years ago. We love our friendly neighborhood and proximity to forest, dunes and beach. At the same time we like to go out, to dinner, a movie or visit a museum.
