Lovely home close to Amsterdam and the beach We have a wonderful home in Haarlem. It's a 15-minute train ride to Amsterdam and a 15-minute ride to the beach (Bloemendaal aan Zee/Zandvoort). We live in a quiet neighboorhood with a playground out front. There's a breathtaking castle (Brederode) quite close, as well as a castle ruin. We only have hypoallergenic pets (a bichon frisé and hairless guinea pigs), since I'm allergic to nearly all animals. I have three kids at home and we still have plenty of toys and games hanging around, from puzzels to the wii. We also have a regular toaster and a designated gluten-free toaster, so if you're gluten-free, it's easy! There is a front and back garden, so in the summer, you can enjoy the sun.

My favorite bits are Brederode (the castle) and the hofjes, the quaint houses with gardens in a central courtyard. Haarlem has wonderful little shops and is the best shopping city in the Netherlands, with lots of little cafés to enjoy. Biking around is wonderful, especially the dunes.

I live with my three daughters. I used to organize chamber music concerts, but now I'm a health economist. Still love to go to concerts, enjoy travelling, but also gardening.
