We have featured in diverse newspaper articles during the years.

For example in the ‘Dagblad van het Noorden’ special; ‘Spits’; a mention with photo in the ‘Telegraaf’; an article in the travel magazine ‘hmm hmmm’; last winter in the ‘Libelle’; another in ‘Flair’…I’ve lost track of them all during the years…Oh yes, also in a publication by our German neighbours…Diana Zulfoghari in the ‘NRZ – Neue Rhein/Neue Ruhr Zeitung’.

Diverse website's, for example ‘Paradijsvogels’. And the ‘Waddenmagazine’. :)

The WDR visited us and filmed for the popular television programme Wunderschön. For the prize question we came up with the idea of the wooden chest and put this together with beachcombing finds from Paul.


When we started fifteen years ago, a reporter from the newspaper ‘Trouw’ came and stayed a night. The lifestyle magazine ‘Landleven’ followed, dedicating a number of pages to us. It’s now so long ago…there must be  pictures somewhere, but where???? I really must look for them, dig through the papers and ask the grandmas (they were so proud!) :)

gastvrij JaNine years ago Nicolette Kluijver and her crew from the programme ‘Nu we er toch zijn op vakantie…’ stayed for a night.
We received a great ‘gastvrij JA’ (hospitable YES) and it is now partly due to us that a golden ‘gastvrij JA’ is displayed at the entrance to the Texel town hall. The programme is unfortunately no longer available via ‘uitzending gemist’.



Last season we received the first prize for ‘Bijzonder Overnachten in Nederland’ (Unusual Accommodation in the Netherlands),

blij prijs texe-yurtsincluding a cup, press coverage and many congratulations from kind hearts. It is, once again, very special for us to realize that what you invest, in whichever form it takes, eventually comes back to you.
