Holiday Rental House
Our vacation rental is a former farmhouse, a so-called 'Kaakberg' in the countryside near Edam, only 15 miles from Amsterdam! The Kaakberg is beautiful located in the countryside near Edam, an old 'cheese' town, with views on the lake and 'polders'. It is very comfortable for 4 persons. There are two separate bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two separate beds, and we have 2 sofa beds in the living room to accommodate 2 more persons, if necessary. Please ask. We can add children beds. 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). The rental includes lots of extra's free of costs, like bikes, private sauna, private outdoor spa, parking and free internet (wireless or use of computer).

About the neighbourhood
There is a quiet beach where you can swim in the lake. It has a big terrace to dine outside. This is a very beautiful place for a honeymoon, a wedding anniversary, for writing, for reading a good book (books available too in different languages!) but 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. The area is very safe and we have a place to park your car.
Getting around
There are lots of opportunities to explore the countryside.Besides Edam and Amsterdam there are lots of interesting places nearby, like all the historical fisherman's places around the lake, Volendam, Hoorn, Enkhuizen etc. You can make daytrips to the North Sea, to the bulb fields or Keukenhof to see the tulips in full bloom (April), Friesland and Hindelopen. Everyone who likes to be in the countryside and at the same time near Amsterdam and many other interesting places in Holland will enjoy this place.
