|Property type||Private room|
|Response time||A few hours|
For us our house is a place where we can relax, be with our family, meet many friends, and have long dinners and good talk together. We shared our house by house-exchange and couchsurfing and love to meet people from different countries and cultures.
Our house is a big city house with a small, cosy garden with a big tree and enough place to relax if the weather is nice.
We have a small but convenient kitchen which can be used on request.
Your sleeping room is on the second floor of the house. (The stairs in dutch houses are quite steep!) It is a big room (20m2) and the bed is 1.60 x 2.00 long. If you are with 3 or 4 people, it is occasionally possible to be hosted in a second big room on the same floor. Ask us for possibilities and prices. Bedding and towels are provided, so no need of taking towels with you! On the first floor is the (shared) bathroom, with a shower, bath and toilet. The bathroom is a bit “old-fashioned” and it’s our next “project” to renovate.
If you stay longer then 3 nights, we can change your bedding if you want.
Towels can be changed as often as you want!
You have your own wardrobe, where you can put your clothes and where you will find more towels.
Also there is a hairdryer, two bathrobes and two pair of slippers at your disposal.
On your room there is a water-cooker and a coffe-maker. Tea and coffee are for free.
There is free Wifi.
Our house is a non-smoking area. Smokers can use the garden.
Parking your car for free is possible. You can park in an area which is a few streets behind our house. Parking shortly in front of our house (3 hours) is also possible, but after 3 hours, you will have to turn the parking-card to a new time, so that's a bit of a hussle and we advice the other possibility.
- We have a female cat, named "Tarzan"
- The house is on walking distance of the city centre
- In the center you will find musea (Frans Hals), beautiful old dutch houses, the old townhall, the Bavo-church, the famous "hofjes", and many parks
- The national park “Kennemerduinen” is on bicycle distance
- The beach (Bloemendaal at Sea and Zandvoort) is on bicycle distance as well
- Supermarket around the corner
- A “plaza” with trees, is at the corner of the street
- Amsterdam center is 15 minutes by train
- Haarlem is proclaimed to be the best “shopping city” of the Netherlands
We are pleased to give you any information about renting a bicycle, taking the train or the bus to the beach, visiting musea and old area's in Haarlem, Amsterdam etc.
House rulesWe ask you to treat our house and us, the family who lives in it with the same respect as we will treat you.
No parties or drugs in the house, no "extra" guests without consulting us before and no "extreme" noise if you come home (very) late.
But coming home late at night is not a problem, because we will give you your own key of the house.

Reviews of this property
We really enjoyed our stay at Marion and Rob's house. They were incredibly helpful and gave us lots of ideas of places to go as well as restaurants, bars etc. The house was very comfortable and secluded which was great after busy days in Amsterdam. We would love to return to their place and spend some more time getting to know them - our fault as we were a bit unsociable - and see more of Haarlem which is a really attractive alternative to Amsterdam.
A very comfortable and relaxing stay with really nice people. Amsterdam is easy to visit from Haarlem with the bus and train. WLAN is available so bringing a Laptop is no problem plus there are shops and places to eat at nearby. The room is cosy and comfortable with double bed. We highly highly recommend these guys.
our first experience with wimdu. We are glad to meet this very friendly family. It starts with a real warm welcome, so what could be better for short vacation. The lodging is located near the beautiful center of Haarlem, pleasant and clean rooms, a friendly cat and a lot of information about the city. Follow the advice from Marion and Rob and you can visit fine places around and in Haarlem, as the Nationalpark etc.
So once again : many to Marion, Rob, Tarzan and the rest of the family

We have just returned from our stay with Marion and Rob in Haarlem. We were made to feel very welcome from the outset, our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable and Rob even cooked us a meal one evening. The house was in a very quiet street not far from the centre of town and travel into Amsterdam was easy and quick. We also visited the seaside and Keukenhof - both easily accessible from Haarlem. Haarlem itself is a lovely city in which to spend some time and there are some great places to eat which are very good value. Anyone looking to spend some time in the Netherlands should look no further than Marion and Rob's house in Haarlem!
me and my friend had this trip for 2 days and i would definitely say we had an amazing time...both marion and rob treated us like their family members and helped us for whatever we asked...it made easier for us to plan our 48 hours in amsterdam and also we saw the beauty of haarlem little bit...thanks to both marion and rob for the help and also we will recommend this property as this is cheap and also comfortable and just 15 minutes really by train to amsterdam central
we have to live the system privately rediscovered for us and tried.
After posting the e-mail contact with Marion and Rob was intensively and extensively. We felt warmly welcomed us with them, and the family got to know and get all the support, get to know the environment. In our individually decorated, welcoming guest rooms, we felt very comfortable, could retire and relax. By using possibility of living room and kitchen, we had a lively contact to Marion, Rob and family.
The Living in Marion and Rob was much appreciated.
Great hosts! Over and over again!
wir haben das System privat zu wohnen neu für uns entdeckt und ausprobiert.
Nach der Buchung war der e-mail Kontakt zu Marion und Rob intensiv und ausführlich. Wir fühlten uns bei ihnen herzlich aufgenommen, haben auch die Familie kennengelernt und jegliche Unterstützung bekommen, das Umfeld kennenzulernen. In unserem individuell eingerichteten, ansprechenden Gästezimmer fühlten wir uns sehr wohl, konnten uns zurückziehen und entspannen. Durch die Nutzungsmöglichkeit von Wohnzimmer und Küche hatten wir einen regen Kontakt zu Marion, Rob und Familie.
Das Wohnen bei Marion und Rob hat uns sehr gefallen.
Tolle Gastgeber! Immer wieder!
I (21 years old) wanted to make in March this year with my girlfriend a short break in Amsterdam and we have searched for a cheap alternative to hotel and hostel. Wimdu we knew not until then. We then decided to go for this property and this was definitely the right decision. The reception on our arrival was very warm. We were immediately invited for dinner, for example. The room was very nicely decorated, spacious, bright and very clean. There were several brochures about attractions in Haarlem and Amsterdam in German and English for us, to even personal tips to the environment (restaurants, bars, etc.). The Wi-Fi was also perfect. The bathroom with shower and bath tub was just to our complete satisfaction. Throughout our stay we felt always very welcome and well looked after. Haalem is located a bit outside of Amsterdam, but it is by bus or train in about 20 minutes in the center of Amsterdam. We can highly recommend this property.
Ich (21 Jahre alt) wollte im März dieses Jahres mit meiner Freundin einen Kurzurlaub in Amsterdam machen und wir haben dafür eine günstige Alternative zu Hotel und Jugendherberge gesucht. Wimdu kannten wir bis dahin noch nicht. Wir haben uns dann für diese Unterkunft entschieden und dies war definitiv die richtige Entscheidung. Der Empfang bei unserer Ankunft war sehr herzlich. Wir wurden zum Beispiel sofort zum Abendessen eingeladen. Das Zimmer war sehr schön eingerichtet, geräumig, hell und sehr sauber. Es lagen mehrere Broschüren zu Sehenswürdigkeiten in Haarlem und Amsterdam in Deutsch und Englisch für uns bereit, dazu auch noch persönliche Tipps zur Umgebung (Restaurants, Bars, etc.). Das WLAN war auch bestens. Das Badezimmer mit Dusche und Badewanne war ebenso zu unserer vollsten Zufriedenheit. Während unseres gesamten Aufenthalts fühlten wir uns stets sehr willkommen und bestens umsorgt. Haalem befindet sich zwar etwas außerhalb von Amsterdam, allerdings ist man mit Bus und Bahn in ca. 20 Minuten im Zentrum von Amsterdam. Wir können diese Unterkunft bestens weiterempfehlen.
We had a very nice stay at Marion and Rob in Haarlem.Das room was great, both very nice and the location excellent for including a short break in Amsterdam and Haarlem day trips to the seaside! So absolutely felt miserable worth. We will definitely be back ... Thank you for the great time!
Wir hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt bei Marion und Rob in Haarlem.Das Zimmer war super, die beiden total nett und die Lage hervorragend für einen Kurzurlaub in Haarlem incl. Tagesausflüge nach Amsterdam und ans Meer! Also absolut empfelendswert. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder... Danke für die schöne Zeit!!
Very nice family, great house with garden .. Can only recommend!
Sehr nette Familie, tolles Haus mit Garten.. Kann man nur weiterempfehlen!!
Thanks for the really sweet place to stay!
We felt very welcome and comfortable. The room was large and stylishly decorated. We were able to enjoy breakfast to our room also because everything was important available!
We had to share a kitchen and living room also.
The family is very friendly and open.
It was close to everything, if we needed anything. Food shopping, Shoopingtour, rent bikes and take the train to Amsterdam within 15 minutes, everything was possible!
We felt a lot more comfortable than a hotel or hostel!
Many thanks to Rob & Marion!!
