vacation rental description

We have several choices:
the large, luxury apartment, the small apartment or the Edam apartment. The large and small apartment are part of an old house, the large apartment is a wooden 'kaakberg',
a old building used for hay, but now changed into a comfortable
apartment with two floors, spacious and tasteful.
Both apartments are beautifully located in the countryside near Edam,
an old "cheese"town, only about 15 miles from Amsterdam. Both
apartments have beautiful views and the large apartment has a full
view over the lake.These are all non smoking apartments.
Please read the(independant) reviews on our website to decide which
one you prefer. This is a great place to stay for everyone who likes to be
in the countryside and at the same time near Amsterdam and many other
interesting places in Holland. The Edam apartment is in the historical city of Edam and is only rented by week. Please inquire about rates and availability.

There is a little beach, over the dike where you can sunbath or swim
in the lake in the summer. You can take a basket over the dike and
have a pick nick or barbeque there.
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.
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

traveler reviews for this amsterdam apartment rental

Exceeding expectations....

Review submitted: July 1, 2008   Date of arrival: May 16, 2008

We enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing two weeks in the Country and Lake apartment - and we don't say that lightly since we travel with two small children (twin boys of 2 years old).... The actualy apartment, amentities and surroundings surpassed any expectations we had based on the descriptions on the Internet. The apartment is beautiful, clean, tastfully decorated (including beautiful bouquets of fresh flowers), and the view (typical Dutch) is magnificent. Many of the days we were there, we just stayed "home", with the kids playing in the big garden (including sandbox), and us, adults, enjoying the quiet and the view. Or we hopped over the dyke to play on the beach. Or we rode our bikes along the dyke to the quaint little town Edam. One of the days we went to Amsterdam to visit the zoo (Artis) and this was only a 40-minutes drive.

Saskia and Onny were wonderful hosts and they helped us make the apartment child-friendly (they had two cribs for us available, put up a gate on top of the stairs, and even lent us some toys for the boys!).

We were/are so pleased with our stay at the Country and Lake that we are considering coming back there for next year's vacation!

Recommended for: families with young children, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

We (2 adults and 1 baby) just returned from a wonderful 4 day, 3 night stay in the large apartment. The apartment was perfect for a romatic, relaxing vacation. The pictures on the website do not do it justice.

The apartment itself is truly luxurious. It is fully appointed with almost anything you could need. The furnishings and deocrations are beautiful and high quality. The owners are warm and welcoming, even adding the extra touch of decorating with fresh flowers throughout the apartment. The master bedroom is fabulous - it is more romantic, relaxing, and comfortable than a 5 star hotel room. The surroundings are goregous and there is plenty to do in the area.

In summary, our stay exceeded all of our expectations. I highly recommend.
