I’m an apartment. I have my own kitchen that looks out over my little sunny roof terrace. I’m perfect for a couple or family with bigger kids. My living area has a leather vintage sofa, a table and a big desk with the same type writer Nijgh used for his master pieces. My kitchen has a dishwasher, fridge, stove, microwave oven, coffee, tea and oranges to make your own orange juice in the morning.
On the top floor I have my own shower and toilet, so don’t have to share with anybody if you book me. You can enjoy a good night sleep in my big bed under the ceiling with old beams. Just swing yourself in bed. Need to squeeze in extra people? There are 2 extra single beds here.
WARNING: my apartment is entirely smoke free, yes even the roof terrace. Due to the proximity with my neighbors the keys for the terrace are given on request to very quiet guests. The terrace is not to be used during quiet time. Quiet time is from 22:00 – 08:00.
Many people recognize the songs I wrote, but as I never sung them myself, they don’t know I wrote the lyrics. In some cases I wrote under the pseudonym ‘Zeepbel’. As everyone I also made mistakes in my life. One I will never be able to hide is about one of my most famous songs Malle Babbe. I looked at a painting made by Frans Hals and wrote the lyrics, however I wrote about a different painting, de Zigeunermeisje.
