The room’s décor is that of a young girl but it's not girly girly. Our daughter's education has taken her to Hong Kong, Boston, Geneva, London and NYC so she hasn't lived at home for years. We just haven’t gotten around to remodeling the room and yes we miss her.

Общение с гостями
Peter and I are in our 50’s. I work part time as a teacher and Peter works both at home and in the office for an investment company. We have both travelled a great deal both for business and pleasure, and have always preferred small hotels and bed and breakfasts where you feel like a guest rather than a customer. We try to extend that feeling to our guests by taking the time to exchange travel stories and give directions or advice on attractions in Amsterdam and Haarlem.
P.S. Peter is a foodie. Instead of eating out, ask Peter to fix you a traditional Dutch meal with local ingredients or just let yourself be spoiled. €20 to €30pp depending on the menu. By reservation only. If he has time, Peter will take you along to the best butchers, cheese shops and fish mongers.

Bikes are a must in Holland. We have two bikes for our guests subject to availability (when our kids are visiting). More bikes can be rented at the train station. Biking to the beach is a pretty 30 minute ride along country homes and through the dunes. Watching the sunset from a bistro on the beach is a great way to end the day. Biking through the tulip fields in the spring is a once in a lifetime experience. We have lived here for 30 years and we never get tired of it.
Amsterdam is not the end-all of Holland. Haarlem is a jewel of a city and it's only 10 minutes by bike from here. It's rated as the country's best place to shop and is also home to the Frans Hals & Tyler's museums and has loads of great restaurants that are less pricey than Amsterdam. Go to the Jopenkerk where they have an in-house brewery and many beer varieties to taste.
Rent an electric boat in Haarlem online and tour the canals while picnicking. A great and relaxing way to spend a sunny day. Just (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Greenjoy.

I am a elementary school teacher, with a passion for the job. Living in the Netherlands with my American husband. We have two children both of whom are in college. I take care of our guests and my husband cooks. A winning combination after all these years.
