About This Listing
Rise & Shine is a wonderful guesthouse located in Katwoude, a tiny village just 15 car/busminutes away from the Amsterdam centre. Originally, it was a farmer's house, now renovated into a comfortable guesthouse, with 3 double bedrooms,a spacious fully equipped kitchen, seperate toilet and bathroom and enough space to relax and unwind. We just renovated the house and everything is spic and span. An extra double bedroom, is recently created on the first floor, so we can accomodate up to 8 guests now, for larger groups and families.
Situated at a dead end road, Rise & Shine is just surrounded by other farms and meadows with far views, Dutch cows and loads of Dutch light coming in the house. As a guest, you have your own outside space where you can sit and enjoy the peaceful view. Rise & Shine is the perfect spot for short stays in the Amsterdam areas, without having to sleep in the hectic of the city and close to famous old Dutch villages such as Volendam, Marken and Edam. And if you want to visit Amsterdam the bus stops 1 minute from the holiday house so you can hop on and within 20 minutes you are in the centre of Amsterdam (even during the night the buses ride!). We also allow people to stay for longer periods with a maximum of 3 months. We offer free wifi, free coffee/tea, (alcoholic)drinks to purchase at good prices. We have children’s furniture & toys. Pets also welcome. Also, it is possible to rent a bike so you can discover the surroundings the Dutch way.
So, if you want both the Amsterdam bubble and the tranquility of Dutch nature; Come over!
The nightly price is125,- is for the whole house ( up to 4, for every extra guest, we charge 25,- p.p. ). You can also rent a room for up to 2 people, which is 75,-
Discounts apply for stays longer than a week. You can also rent this house outside the high season for up to 3 months. Price can be negotiated.
This trip to the Netherlands was the best ever! The house is such a nice place to feel good and enjoy every minute during the stay.
Fre is also very nice and helpful.
The bus connection is good (it takes 20 minutes to Amsterdam Centraal) and there are enough buses to take (No. (phone number hidden)).
We'll come back for sure - thank you for this amazing holiday!!!
I had stayed a day but well owners kindly guidance.
This was easily accessible from Amsterdam city center. It was the house where you can feel the atmosphere of the Netherland.

We (8 girls) stayed at Fre´s charming house for 2 nights at the beginning of may and we definitely loved it.
Fre responded very quickly and I really texted her a lot. Sorry Fre :D
The house is super clean, the rooms are the same as it can be seen on the pictures. The location is great: it´s close to Volendam, cheese factories are nearby, and Amsterdam is only a 20km bus ride.
Her twins are lovely and we enjoyed playing soccer with them a lot.
Thanks for hosting us. We would love to come back some day.
Quaintest little farmhouse. Exactly as in the pictures. Fre is very nice and the house was very clean. Not near Amsterdam but a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle to recharge. We had the whole house and loved looking at the cows across the field.
Our stay at Fre's guesthouse was wonderful!
The contact with Fre was very nice and straightforward.
We booked our one-night-stay at short term. Everything went very well; there was no problem in shifting the check-in/check-out time a little bit which was great.
When we arrived at Fre's cozy house there happend to be a funny scene: the house was overbooked by mistake (via another Website) for exactly this one night. Normally the house can only be booked by one group or family. Fre cleared up everything; she even organized a new lodging for us immediately which was not necessary because we all wanted to stay in her lovely place. Everything went smooth and we were all very pleased with our stay!
The house is really comfy, there is everything you need for a stay. All bedrooms are lovingly arranged and the view at the ouside is just incredible!
Also the location is perfect. A supermarket can be found 5 minutes away (by car), Amsterdam is about 25 minutes away. You can park your car cheap docksite and go to Central Station and downtown by ferry (for free!).
On the whole I can say our stay at Fre's was really perfect. She is such a lovely host, very helpful and nice.
Thanks for the wonderful stay at your house, dear Fre!
I'm sure we'll meet again :)
We spent a wonderful weekend at "rise and shine". This house is perfectly for groups. Price is great. It is alsi easy to go by bus or car to Amsterdam. Supermarktes can also be reached easily by car.
