The apartment is like a home away from home. Great decor, storage facilities, living room and dining room facilities (books, TV, dining table, coffee table, sofas, etc). It's just very cosy, and the kitchen is great with everything you need to prepare food in the evening. It was just like being at home. Toilet roll isn't provided which is an added inconvenience to go out and buy some. The mattresses are also way too soft and bouncy, and therefore don't stay on the bed so well. However, the day was excellent apart from the very end (checkout) when we needed some assistance to carry our luggage to the car. I was on crutches due to an accident, my wife is heavily pregnant, and my father-in-law has polio and uses a walking stick. Unfortunately, we were told no one was available to assist us due to a busy reception. My pregnant wife therefore had to carry all the luggage on her own. I would expect a residence such as this to at least offer assistance with baggage to disabled guests, but it wasn't the case on this occasion.

Our family booked two apartments during the famous largest Catamaran race Round Texel. California Residence is conveniently located near Peer 17 giving easy access to the beach. The apartments are fully equipped with everything one needs except toilet articles making it easy to prepare your breakfast and any other meals there. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Good value for money!

We come back every year for a weekend with friends. We rent a huis for all of us. Everything's there. You only need to worry about food. You get the camping feeling but with a luxury and easy touch. My idea of camping 😁 the staff is also very welcoming and supportive.

I would like to rate this accommodation a 'good' since it is not average but also not very good. The apartment was very clean and fully equipped. Although it was a pity that there are to tablets for dishwasher and no liquid soap for doing the dishes. The bed for 2 persons is far too small, when 1 person is 2 meters tall. The other beds were soft and pillows can be filled up. The interior is a bit outdated. Water pressure was good and we had a nice stay.

We got great value on a two-bedroom apartment. It includes a full kitchen, a large living room, and a large patio balcony. The kitchen has a stovetop, microwave, fridge, and a dishwasher. It's about a 20 minute walk to the beach, or must faster on one of the bikes that you can rent here. The staff is very friendly, although the reception is only open at certain times of day. It's a great base of operations for enjoying the island. I would definitely stay here again next time I visit Texel.

On the website of the company offering this accommodation it says "Deluxe apartments on Texel". But don't expect too much: You only find a simple microwave, no dishwasher, no washing machine, no dryer, no modern TV sets. Although you find up to three TV sets in an apartment, many of them are only old tube TVs with a blurry picture and a poor reception. Well, they don't promise or offer you the mentioned technical equipment on their website, so it's okay. But when you read "deluxe" you might have different expectations. The positive aspects: The facility managers are very friendly and helpful. You have free WLAN and cable TV access. The apartments have a terrace or a balcony. Many apartments have a sauna, a whirlpool or two bathrooms. The place is really spick and span. There is an elevator, so all apartments are accessible for elderly people who cannot walk up the stairs anymore. The location in the National Park is great; so many attractions (e.g. Ecomare) are in walking distance. There is ample free parking on the premises. Each apartment has an individual design, different furniture and equipment, so carefully check the information provided on the booking website. If you book the accommodation (maximum: 4 persons) for a stay on a public holiday or at high season they might charge you up to $ 275-300 per day. But if you have the chance to get a last minute reduction or if you can travel in low season you certainly will find a bargain offer. All in all the accommodation can be recommended.

it was a really nice and relaxing weekend at the Residentie California :) the apartments are clean and spacy. we had a 2 bedroom apartment. small kitchen but with everything there, 1 bedroom even had its own shower and the other had a door to the master bathroom with a fabulous bubble bath :) the personal is really nice and helpful. its close to the beach and Ecomare. and if you want to have a nice meal on the beach go to Paal 17 :)

Die Ferienwohnung war groß, sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet. (WLAN, Smart TV, Stereo Anlage, BR Player, Spiele) Der tägliche Brötchen-Service ist preiswert und einfach abzuwickeln. Am Service kann man sich für 5-10€ (Je nach Länge) Fahrräder ausleihen. Zum Strand geht man ca. 20 Minuten, nach De Koog sind es 40 Minuten, mit dem Fahrrad lässt sich alles auf der Insel gut und schnell erreichen. ACHTUNG!! Obwohl in der Buchungsbestätigung stand, dass die Gebühr für Bettwäsche nur optional ist, hat man uns bei Ankunft gezwungen diese zu zahlen. Eine Abrechnung erhält man leider auch nicht. Ingesamt waren wir jedoch zufrieden.

We zijn hier een week geweest in dit appartementencomplex, wij zaten op de eerste verdieping met een balkon, alles zag er schoon en netjes uit zowel binnen als buiten het complex. De beheerders waren erg vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Het appartement was prima, leuk ingericht, alleen het bankstel mag wel vervangen worden maar verder was alles goed, de bedden lagen goed, en zag het er schoon uit, het appartementen complex ligt aan het bos, heel dichtbij ecomare en het juttersmuseum, op loopafstand van het strand paal 17, en het was ongeveer 10 minuten fietsen naar het dorp de Koog zelf, waar je 2 supermarkten heb en leuke winkeltjes en eetgelegenheden.

Eenvoudig, maar prima plek, schoon en prima bedden. Dichtbij strand, bos en ecomare. Verder rustig. Niet echt eilandgevoel. Maar zeer laagdrempelig. Dorpen op fietsafstand. Uitstraling wordt dit jaar verbeterd
