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 a bed room for two persons. 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 are stairs from the ground floor to the first floor and to the second floor.
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 wifi Internet at no extra costs.
You can read guest reviews and a special review of the VRBO Bear on the VRBO site (it is from the time we still had two places for rent.
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 house 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 (one baby bed and one toddlers) we can provide (one for max. 3 and one for max. 4 ).
We provide 4 bikes for the guests and there is possibility to rent more in Edam.
We live in the countryside which means there is no public transportation here. Within 3 miles there is a bus from Edam to the center of Amsterdam.
Because we live in the countryside and near to the lake we do have sometimes, mostly in the summer, musquitos, but we have screens in front of the windows everwhere and can also provide musquito nets.
