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 Home Town

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.
