Located in a beautiful, gated bungalow park (search for Recreationpark Burghorn to see photos), my place is close to Schagen, Callantsoog, Alkmaar, Texel Island, Amsterdam (1-hour train ride), and North Sea beaches. You’ll love my place because of its views of the polders (sometimes with tulips, cows, and sheep). Our quiet and private bungalow with the park's best views is about 100 meters from Recreationpark Burghorn's indoor swimming pool, children's pool, play ground, bar, and restaurant.

We have owned our condo in St. John (Virgin Islands) for 16 years, and our Schagen (Netherlands) bungalow for 10 years.
After completing a PhD in the mid 1970's, I taught English at the University of the Virgin Islands on St. Thomas and my wife taught 4th grade at the Pine Peace School there. We loved St. John then, and later traveled there often with our two
sons as they were growing up. We continue to enjoy our quiet, beautiful St. John condo in retirement with our large family (sons, daughters-in-law, grandchildren, and happily, our many "senior" siblings).
My parents emigrated from Holland to America after WW II so that my father could continue selling flower bulbs as he had around Alkmaar. They taught us Dutch as our first language so that we could easily visit friends and relatives in Holland -- and we have been visiting Holland often for 50 years.
