My place is close to the beach and the city center of Haarlem. I think you'll like it. I have really friendly neighbours. Free parking in front of the door. and a small mall just a block a way. The bus to the airport is 5 minute walk and then you're there within 25 minutes.
I have a small mall across the street.
A little park and water.
You can park in front of the door for free.
If you take the bus from schiphol you need the red bus 300 towards haarlem. Get out at Schalkwijk and you have to walk for about 7 minutes to my house.
