Our house is located in a quiet, child-friendly neighborhood, close to Schiphol airport, the beach a parc, Amsterdam and Haarlem. We live near a small shopping center, a nice parc (Haarlemmermeerse bos) and an eventcenter with restaurants, bowling and a casino. You can go shopping in the center of Hoofddorp, 10 minutes by car. But Haarlem is about 15-20 min away by car or 10 min by bus. Amsterdam is also by bus and train easy to visit.
