I have lived in Scheveningen since 1999, first in the apartment upstairs and later I bought the downstairs apartment. In 2009 I started to renovate both apartments and I decided to start a bed-and-breakfast. Two studios were created to rent out for tourists.
I have always had guests in my house since I live in Scheveningen. For friends and family who wanted to enjoy the beach. And as one of the first members of couchsurfing and hospitalityclub, offering other members a free place to stay. During my trips around Europe I met such nice people who spontaneously showed me around in their home town. This mentality has inspired me to offer beach-lovers a good time in a comfortable room.
Joan was also born in June 1971, we are both vegetarian, we love cooking, enjoying nature and doing yoga exercises. We both care about the environment: for the renovation I used susainable materials, we prefer to cook with organic and from local farms. Joan is working as a SAP consultant for international businesses. My regular job is a team manager for urban design at the municipality of Haarlemmermeer.
