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.

About Saskia Huisink-Janse
Mostly you will be in contact with me (Saskia). 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
Why Saskia Huisink-Janse chose
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.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
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.
