As you can see on photos, the lighthouse of Texel is just outside the door. You can reach the Ocean in 1-2 minutes of walking,several different restaurants also; and the next supermarket and bakery can be reached in 5 minutes by car. Therefore - Infrastructure is more than perfect considering that you are on an island. As mentioned in other reviews, there is a bathroom, seperate toilet and the room is being cleaned every day.Free Wifi. Breakfast is optional and includes eggs, cheese, ham, different breads, jams, fruits, tea, coffe,..well, you name it, it is there. Frans and Els are very polite, helpful and great people to get to know. We stayed there for 3 nights out of a three week trip through the Netherlands and it was the best place we had seen. If you are interested in photography and/or birdwatching, you will be also pleased to hear that there are great locations all around to do so. Also it has to be mentioned that during our stay we photographed our first night-rainbow. Yes, they doexist, we did not know also. So with all that in mind we came to the conlusion that this really is a great place and highly recommended! Kind Regards from Vienna, Antoinette & Norbert

We can not have more beautifull days on Texel island, than by Frans en Els place. The best location of the house gives you extra view...by sunrice, by sunset...and by warm nice people I felt there so good! Delicious home made bread I ever tasted, by breakfast every day. My the bigest wish is come back...:)

Very kind service. Breakfast in the master kitchen. Much choice of bread, slices of sausage and cheese. Fruit included every day. We had a 2 persons room with a view at the sea. It was cleaned every day. In the room is a small bathroom with toilet and a little kitchen. We had a very nice holliday for one week. This is a perfect location if you like to enjoy nature.

A great B&B on the northern tip of Texel. Handy for birdwatching, beaches and great place to base yourself for walks and cycle rides on Texel. Next to the famous Texel Lighthouse I'm sure that rooms facing the direction of the lighthouse would be bright in the night. My room faced east and had an outdoor space with a table and I could watch the sun rise. A great breakfast here
