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 23 years. My husband is director and I am the 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. 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.

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
Idealic setting , luxurious accomodations
We were delighted with our stay at the farmhouse 'Kaakberg'....the setting could not be more ideal....immediately across the road is the beach and sea, a lovely farm spreads around in every direction, the village of Edam is an easy bike ride away. Edam is a lovely town with plenty of shopping, good restaurants and bars. We day tripped to places like the Keukenhof gardens and Haarlem but mostly we loved just relaxing in this beautifully equipped and decorated home. The sauna and spa were wonderful bonuses to come home to after a long day of touring....Saskia was a perfect host....friendly and knowledgeable. Two weeks later after staying in a variety of other locations all four of us still thought this was the best stay of our trip......
Peaceful country place accessible to Amsterdam
There's always something to watch from the large apartment's living room. The big Holland sky with the ever-changing weather. A large green vista of fields and canals, relaxing to the eyes. Horses pastured nearby, frolicking, gamboling, or just feeding. The industrious farmer who lives next door at his many tasks. Staring out the window at the canals and fields and farm animals feels like being in Holland of 150 years ago.
The apartment is modern and clean. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. The TV has an excellent sound system. Upstairs, the bedroom is a peaceful airy room with beautiful views of the lake nearby. It has a high ceiling and a wonderful bathtub. Downstairs, a sauna, hot tub, and outdoor patio where we ate when the weather cooperated. Also a computer/laundry room. The owners are super-nice. They gave us rides from the bus station.They also provided us with working bicycles and locks so we could do our errands in nearby Edam, or take the bus to Amsterdam. Most important, they gave us privacy.
If you want to spend a week in the Amsterdam area, consider this little slice of heaven, and take the bus when you feel the need to be in the city. Otherwise, enjoy Dutch country life or the charming small town of Edam.
The location and quality of your apartment are among the best we have ever rented.
We are writing to thank you for your wonderful hospitality during our recent one-week stay at Country & Lake. The location and quality of your apartment are among the best we have ever rented. In the immediate area we so enjoyed walking on the lakeshore, the fields with the sheep and horses, and the quiet. But the location is also within easy reach of Amsterdam, Keukenhof, and other towns.
The apartment is so spacious, with its wonderful views of the lake and the canal. We spent many restful hours simply enjoying those views. And the apartment is so light and airy, with comfortable furniture in the lounge, and the huge dining table in the superbly equipped kitchen. The bedroom, with its ensuite bathroom and balcony overlooking the lake, is truly luxurious.
The fresh flowers in the bedroom and the on the kitchen table when we arrived set the tone for wonderful holiday. Using your bicycles to ride along the dike to Edam for the market and to enjoy local shops and restaurants in such a quaint village was very relaxing and great fun. The use of the computer room, laundry and sauna made for a very comfortable stay. Onny, a special thank you for advice on how to eat smoked eel. The meal we made with that and also with smoked mackerel and fresh vegetables from the local market were delicious.
We anticipate visiting you again in the years to come.
