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.

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!

Godwin & Wimmo purchased this house in 1999

Multi-award winning and tropical-inspired but most of all, this B&B is inspired and run with love.

Location, location, location. Situated with the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Terrific customer service by wonderful hosts.

  • 5 of 5
Welcome to Amsterdam was the continuing theme of our stay. Centrally located close to all transportation and within walking distance to many attractions. Breakfast options were many and nothing was overlooked in helping us enjoy our stay. Part of the "charm" was the 2-storey climb up the steep stairway which was a bit of a workout. Enjoyed our morning visits with our international housemates and the owners could not have been better hosts. Part of the reason we will return to Amsterdam some day.

Ten years ago, my husband stayed at Barangay before they expanded. He hasn't stopped talking about Wimmo and Godwin's hospitality. Chance brought us there again. As soon as we walked in, Wimmo offered us a hot drink (hot chocolate with Irish Cream: delicious) and gave our son a toy. He showed us where attractions were on the map and took us to our room.

The room was decorated with an Indonesian theme and was unique and well appointed. There were books to read, coffee and tea, and a gigantic, long bathtub (my tall husband's favorite feature). The beds were comfortable.

Barangay is very close to Centraal Station, restaurants and shops. It's on a quiet street, so you don't have to worry about night noise. I'd highly recommend a stay here for anyone from families to singles.

Location. Location. Location wise this is one of the best areas to explore amsterdam and beyond.

Literally, most tourist attractions are just around the corner, within walking distance!

The area named “the golden reaal” is right in the old centre 200 meters south-west from the central station. Our quiet street droogbak connects 2 major canals, the singel and the prinsengracht. Parallel with the droogbak is the longest shopping street of the netherlands. A section of this street is named haarlemmerstraat/dijk, a former sea dike, but now you find good restaurants, specialty- and local shops, coffee shops, cafe's, galleries, hair saloons, laundromats, a famous art-deco cinema and a lot more. The brouwersgracht one of the most beautiful canals connecting the four main canals is just one street behind it.

Barangay b&b is next to the famous jordaan quarter where you can also find anne frank's house and markets on saturday and mondays.

The central station is just 5 minute walk away

Other Activities: museum, old historical city centre
