About our home

Our small family home suits a couple as well as a whole family. I live here since 2007 with my son (12) and daughter (15).
All the bedrooms have double size beds plus the big couch can unfold for extra guests as we use it for those teenage sleepovers. There is a BBQ in the back yard. And bikes in the shed. There are tennis and football fields on one side of the street and a guarded playground for very small children, with sand and swings and building logs.
At the other end of our street starts a recreational area called Geestermerambacht with a lake for swimming, walking or biking around .
We are 2 miles from Alkmaar, with its famous cheese market and 10 miles from the picturesque art village of Bergen, with lots of restaurants and shops open all weekend and from the North Sea beach. On bikes it's faster than by car, also saves searching for a parking spots. In high season the beaches tend to get crowded.
Without rush hour Amsterdam can be reached by car in 40 minutes ( 40 miles south) and by train in 50 min.
The house is not luxurious but the basics are there: television, microwave, washing and drying machine and not to forget wifi and playstation 4 of course.
In the backyard there is a pingpong table, skateboard and basketball ring. In the shed are children toys and tennis rackets.
