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!

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.
Fre was a great host! The home was absolutely beautiful. And the views can't be beat. We loved our stay.
Outstanding host! Great experience and beautiful location. I was pleasantly surprised with how nice the space was and would not have experienced the Netherlands any other way!
The house was as described, it was cute and beautifull ! We are very happy to share a part of our travel to Amsterdam with Fre house's. See you soon!
Super locatie en erg knus huis. Het onderhoud is wel wat achterstallig maar Fre gaf aan dat hier aan gewerkt wordt.
Fre was very welcoming and the house was as described! It was decorated cosily and it was very clean. The location is perfect if you're looking for a place near Amsterdam but not directly in the city. We were 9 people and there was enough space for all of us and we enjoyed our stay there!
Het huis ligt op een prachtige locatie. Heel rustig, mooie natuur en toch dicht bij Amsterdam! Helaas was er nogal wat achterstallig onderhoud in het huis. Verder was het huis niet schoon, het beddengoed zat vol vlekken en de handdoeken roken muf.
Besides melancholic, dramatic and always too late: open minded, creative, bubbly, smart, philosophical, warm, free; and extremely beautiful ofcourse,ha.
