Cozy Loft in the Centre of Haarlem - First Apartment

We found our first short stay apartment on Airbnb, and there really couldn't be a better introduction to Haarlem than this cute loft on Wilhelminastraat, a main thoroughfare in town. We've made ourselves right at home here, and it's weird to think that we'll be moving on to another temporary apartment at the end of the month.

By way of introduction, I'll say that this apartment is up four flights of stairs past a business that we never even see. It's got windows facing the street on both sides of the building and a skylight in the ceiling, so it's flooded with sunlight during the day. It's a decent size for over here, and we have bike parking at the end of the block near the Albert Heijn grocery store and the old church that now houses the Jopen Brewery. This is where we live...

So this is where we're living for now, stay tuned for our next location!
