Sparkling row house, in a lovely old town, easy public transportation to attractions such as the National Park in the dunes, Amsterdam. We greatly appreciated information provided by our hosts including details of red bus 300 from Schiphol Airport, even what stop to get off. The house was very well supplied, the back yard pleasant, the local grocery store wonderful. We walked all over and particularly enjoyed the Hofjes and the Windmollen Adriaan. Couldn't recommend this rental more highly.
Charming House is in an excellent location for a holiday in Haarlem . We drove there and there is a very convenient car park directly opposite . We left the car there all week as Haarlem is wonderful for walking . We used the train to go into Amsterdam and for visiting other places of interest . The house itself is good as a base and the little garden at the rear made it perfect . The weather was excellent while we were there so using the garden for breakfast and dinner in the evening when we returned from sight seeing was a great bonus. Rudy and Bea made sure we had everything we needed . We will certainly return .
This is by far the best spot I've stayed in to date and I've stayed in quite a few all around the world. The moment you arrive you are welcomed by a charming house located a stones throw from the city centre. The house is very tastefully furnished along with a state of the art home entertainment system. A really cool patio area at the rear of the house is a welcoming sight especially after a fantastic days shopping, here you can put your feet up and unwind to the singing of the birds and tranquility. Rudy and Bea have thought of everything and more right down to shampoo! The owners here are at the very top of their game, true polished pro's is all I can say, keep up the stellar work guys. I'm definitely returning after 3 months, it's heaven.
Charming House is a lovely place to stay, conveniently located for walking to the town center and very close to a bus stop. It is a very attractive two-story apartment with entrance from a pleasant, wide pedestrian alley serving other residences. It is immaculate and comfortable, and also quiet, being in a residential neighborhood.
Great restaurants are all around: Delicious lunch at "Parijs in Haarlem" and lovely tea and scones or other treats at "Bij Babette," and we enjoyed the amazing "Rice Table" dinner at the Indonesian restaurant "La Chende Javaan." Charming little shops and interesting sights are all close by.
My friend and I were very happy to have stayed in Haarlem as it is a beautiful old town, just a 15 minute train ride from larger, busier Amsterdam. Charming House provided a peaceful haven at the end of our touring days. Highly recommend it!
We had a quick stay in Haarlem and the Charming House was perfect. Haarlem is a wonderful city with good food and shops. The house is located walking distance to the train station and all that the city has to offer. We loved our stay and hope to return!
