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 Warder
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Country Lake House
A Gorgeous farming landscape, filled with cute farm animals and pretty kitchen gardens, surrounds this home, with views of the large freshwater lake. The hosts kindly brought us fresh vegetables from their garden. It was a dream!
Great stay in a great location!
This house was a lovely quiet place to stay for three nights. We stayed with our parents (in their 70s) and all four of us were extremely happy. The hosts were kind and helpful, the home was bright and open and the location was perfect to allow us to explore Edam and Amsterdam!
Country Charm at it's best!
Thank you Saskia and Onny, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!! The only problem was we didn't have enough time!! Thank you for all your hospitality ❤️ JoAnne
thanks! Have a great trip in Europe for the rest of your holidays!
Beautiful inside and out! Wonderful Experience and Fantastic Hosts.
This was truly a beautiful and relaxing stay. Saskia and her husband were wonderful hosts, and even brought us homemade bread and fresh eggs for breakfast. The home was spotless and in a simply beautiful area. Sitting in the hot-tub watching the sun set was so relaxing, as was the sauna. And getting to Amsterdam was simple with a short drive to catch the bus for a 25 minute ride into Central Station. Edam is a delightful little town. All in all a perfect vacation get-away!
Dear Alan, thank you so much for this beautiful review. It was a pleasure to have you all as our guests and we are happy you enjoyed your stay in the Netherlands.
Perfekt ausspannen und genießen
Wir hatten einen wunderschönen, entspannten Aufenthalt. Die Location ist einfach perfekt, im Appartement fühlt man sich sofort wohl und hat alles was man braucht. Individuell eingerichtet mit Ausblick auf endlose Wiesen und das Meer. Man kann Kräuter im Garten pflücken und bekommt obendrauf noch Eier von Saskias Hühnern. Die beiden Gastgeber sind sehr sympathisch und hilfsbereit.
Amsterdam ist knapp eine halbe Stunde Fahrzeit mit dem Auto entfernt und Edam klein, schnuckelig, abends besonders romantisch.
Wir werden ganz bestimmt wiederkommen.
Vielen Dank Ulrike und Jürgen! Wir hoffen Ihnen wieder zu sehen, vielleicht nochmals in September nächtes Jahr? Viele Grüssen, Onny und Saskia
Great location, beautiful home!
Very beautiful three story home with views of the country side! We stayed here for a little over a week with two families of three each, which the home fit perfectly. The kitchen area is well equipped and allowed us to cook easily to save some money on food. Beds were comfortable and heaters allowed for us to control temperature. Spa and sauna were great places to relax after a day of walking the city. Would highly recommend. Hosts were very accommodating and accessible during stay.
Thank you Mary and company for your very nice review! Onny and Saskia
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.
