Charming country house in a Dutch polder nearby Amsterdam, Edam and Volendam. The house consist of two parts; one part is used by ourselves (right), the second part is the haystack (50 m2), which is renovated into a separate house.
Our house is situated in a rural environment, but still close by Amsterdam (15 km), Edam (3 km) and Volendam (3km). The house consist of two parts, the haystack (left) and our own house (right). The haystack is the part that we rent. It has 2 floors, on the ground floor there is a kitchen /livingroom (25m2) and on the first floor the bed/bathroom (25 m2) with balcony. There is one 2 persons bed, for young kids we can arrange a bedstead.
You will have access to the haystack (left part of the house) , the other part is where we live by ourselves.
Pets are permitted, we have one cat
You will have your own private house, we do not get there during your stay. Since we live in the other part of the house, we will be present at the location and share the garden wit you
My wife Jacqueline and I live here for over 30 years already. We bought the house as an old cowshed and rebuild it several times. The last renovation was when our three kids were all moved out of the house. We tried to recycle as much parts of the old house as possible and we are very pleased with the result.
We really love the quiet and green environment around here, in the summer period we love to tour with our bikes packet with baggage in Holland, but also other places around Europe. Every winter we hope for a good ice skate season, though that seems to be rare nowadays. Since we both recently retired, we will then enjoy spending our time reading next to the fire place with our cat Poeki.
