The space

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!

Our family of 6 have a pleasant one night stay at Rise and Shine. The house is clean and neat. Fre was very helpful despite our numerous queries. We needed an extra night stay and Fre introduced us to Jan. If you are a foreigner touring Amsterdam, best to get the Amsterdam Region…

Wonderfully wonky, cheerfully quirky traditional cottage in a small active farming community near to Volendam (pleasant 3 km walk) and Amsterdam (20 minute bus ride). Fre and her boys are super friendly and the views are calming. The house is well equipped (we found everything w…

Response from Fre:
Hello Haegeun, We are very sorry to hear that. We were out ourselves on a short holiday and we checked this with on of our cleaners. We have made arrangements that this will not happen again. Concerning the mosquitos, during these dry months in the countryside you are right, there are many musquitos here in the area. We hang up some extra insect-traps to keep them out. Thank you for your feedback!
