Wimmo and God (as he is called by his friends) are two easy-going guys sharing their lives together since 1996. In August 1999 thier biggest dream came true and opened their own guesthouse, Barangay Bed and Breakfast.
Wimmo, the Dutch look-a-like of Bruce Willis was born in a small city near Rotterdam. He was trained as a classical ballet dancer in The Hague and from 1980 till 1987, he danced for Het Internationale Dans Theather in Amsterdam. After 3 years in the advertising world, he worked for a canal boat company and managed it for 10 years. Aside from the Barangay, Wimmo worked part-time as host/guide on canal boats trips for the same company. He is the in-house designer and interior decorater. Since 2010 he has rediscovered his passion for painting.
Before cold Netherlands 1996, God lived a long and happy live in tropical paradise, The Philippines. There he was a college instructor in economics and political science, a research writer both for MBC business magazine and Lady Senator Rasul. Happier times in Amsterdam, Godwin did all kind of 'odd jobs' instead of finishing his MBA studies. He also worked for a canal boat company, waited for Hard Rock Café, helped a very good friend run his guesthouse and seriously, was a data typist. Godwin is a fanatic tennis player and since 2005 a licensed tennis instructor. He plays in de GLTA European circuit.
The other hosts
Our Ginger Cats Flip & Gogo had a good life with us for almost 16 years, unfortunately cats don't life forever...
The 14th of December 2012 we welcomed our new Black Boys Billy & Bossy
Billy is a bit bigger than his brother, he is very curios and playfull. Bossy takes it easy and is still a bit shy.
We hope they will complete our family for at least another 16 years!
