|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Did you ever sleep in a 'kaakberg'? This farmers house is our vacantion rental and is build like the old hay barns that are typical for our area.
It is a great place to stay for everyone who likes to be in the countryside and at the same time near Amsterdam. When you come home from a city trip you can relax in this quiet, breathtaking environment with all the luxury you wish for. The house has three floors: Ground floor with a hall, sauna room and brand new bed room for two persons (photo's are coming soon). The first floor is the living with dining and kitchen (and the possibility for two more persons to sleep on sofa beds). The second floor is a bed room for 2 persons and a bathroom. The views are incredible everywhere, but on the second floor you have an open view over the lake.
There is a little beach, over the dike where you can sunbathe or swim in the lake in the summer. This is a very safe, quiet and beautiful place for a honeymoon, a wedding anniversary, for writing, for reading a good book. If you like to be more active: there are lots of opportunities to explore the countryside by foot, bicycle or by car. It is a great place for bird watching and if you like horses you can watch the neighbor training his horses at sunset. We offer a lot of amenities, such as bikes, a laundry room, sauna, outdoor spa and fast Internet at no extra costs.
You can read guest reviews and a special review of the VRBO Bear on the VRBO site.
The house is beautifully located in the countryside at the IJsselmeer dike very near Edam, an old 'cheese’ town. Amsterdam is 25 km away and easy to reach by bus from Edam or by car.
The apartment is suitable for 4 persons, but we have extra room for 2 more. Pets are welcome, but we have some small rules. Children under 5 are free if they sleep in the childrens beds we can provide (one for max. 5 and one for max. 3 years old).
Mostly you will be in contact with me (Saskia), since my husband doesn't like computers at all. I live with my husband Onny in this house already more than 25 years. My husband is director and I am a playwright. The vacation rental is something we do beside this. We love to be in contact with people from all over the world and help them to explore the Netherlands. We love to travel ourselves too, as this picture shows,taken in 2009 in Sedona.
Saskia Huisink-Janse purchased this farmhouse in 1988
We rent a part of our house since 1998, because our daughter flew out to live on her own and our theatre got a beautiful new house in Edam, so we could move the office and atelier. Our private house was suddenly large for the two of us, so we decided to do something more with it to be able to maintain this beautiful place where we live and to share it with other people.
Our house is situated in a beautiful, still quiet area in the Netherlands. It is build like the old hay barns (Kaakberg), typical for our area in North Holland, but with all the comfort you need.
Near Amsterdam and next to the lake. If you like to be in the countryside, but you don't want to miss Amsterdam with its interesting musea, canals and architecture, come and stay here. If you want to find out that the Netherlands is a beautiful country and has a lot more interesting things to offer than marihuana and the red light district, please come to our place and we can tell you all about it.
Danke, danke, danke! Ein traumhaftes Ambiente in wunderschöner Landschaft!
Vielen Dank für die Gastfreundschaft!
Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!
The house is a typical 'Kaakberg' and is situated near Edam,15 miles from Amsterdam in the countrysid, next to the IJsselmeer (lake). The environment is beautiful and unspoiled, a quiet and safe area. Edam is a very charming little town, and there are lots of other old fisherman villages to explore. For museums, theatre and galleries you can go to Amsterdam. In the summer you can swim in the lake or go the the beach right at your doorstep. In the spring the tulip fields are nearby and Amsterdam is worthwhile to visit in all seasons of course. If you like a quiet, safe place where you can relax after day trips or simply stay 'at home' this is the place to be.
