The space

We bought our neighboring house a while ago, and built our private library on the ground floor. We rent out the top floor as a Bed & Breakfast. This floor has a small room with a bed for two persons (double or separate bed), one small room with two beds in a bunk bed. And one room for relaxing.

Guest access

There are options for more people staying: There is a sofa in the living room and there's an attic with an option for some more mattresses, but that is less comfortable. (Please note: we charge 15 EUR per extra person staying). There is a shower on the first floor which you can use and a toilet and kitchen for your own use on the ground floor. The music, comics and books in our library are available for guests, including a section in English language. We are still building the rest of the premises, and in the near future there will be access to our sizeable (500 m2) garden with chickens and some playing facilities for kids.

Interaction with guests

We won't be available all of the time due to working obligations, but a lot of those are at our own house next door. Our intention is to be there every morning to serve you your breakfast. We are flexible people and always open to suggestions and ideas.

We have a nice time with Arris and his family in "The ladies of Jazz". The breakfast was wonderful and we were very confortable in the whole house. We had everything we needed. The house is located close to various shops and supermarkets. Also, very close to the UTwente and just five minutes by bus to the city center. We have a great time and if we need accomodation in Enschede we will repeat again!

My family spent fours days in Enschede at Arris' B&B and they had a great time. Arris and his wife were great host, they have been fast in replying, very helpful and friendly. We had two bedrooms and a room with sofa upstairs, and private kitchen, bathroom and toilette. It is a really nice place for stay for families or for a group of friends. The big library/music room downstairs was really cozy, full of books and vinyls, my father and my nephew really enjoyed spending some time there. Breakfast was plentiful, and you could use the kitchen to prepare some coffee and tea or have some drinks in the rest of the day. The house is in Twekkelerveld, a quite and green neighbourhood, close to various shops and supermarket. Very close to the UT campus and just five minutes by bus to the city center. Really nice stay and great house for a very good price!

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Arris' place: The house is very cozy, we had everything we needed including a great breakfast prepared by Arris (with some help from his son) and spent some time digging through his vast library. We'd love to return and spend some more time at the place!
