B&B de Moerbei on Texel is suitable for disabled guests.
We are Norbert and Esther Dekker, our dream came true when we moved to this beautiful monumental building with our son Lucas to start a bed and breakfast in it. The Mulberry has a total of three double rooms, one of which is specially equipped for disabled guests because we believe there is a shortage of them.
Ook als je mindervalide bent zou je moeten kunnen genieten van een heerlijk weekendje of een paar dagen op het fantastische Texel .
We often came to Texel, the peace and space is so nice here on this island and the nature is indescribably beautiful. That is one of the reasons why we started a BnB here. Another reason is that Esther’s parents own a bungalow park here on de Cocksdorp which we also became co-owners of since January. This bungalow park ‘t Eibernest has a 6-person house which is also suitable for disabled and wheelchair-dependent guests. Experience shows that there is great demand for accommodation suitable for the disabled, which is why we have deliberately chosen to make one room suitable for disabled and wheelchair-dependent guests. This room The Alba is located on the first floor, has a parking space in front of the door and has a very spacious bathroom.
The room is luxuriously and stylishly furnished yet suitable for elderly and disabled guests. Our guests sleep on wonderful box spring beds. The bathroom is spacious and equipped with brackets next to the toilet and shower, there is a sink with a special tilting mirror, if necessary we can place a shower chair. Furthermore, this room has, a flat screen TV with DVD, a kettle, nespresso machine and refrigerator.
Every morning we bring a full picnic basket with a delicious fresh breakfast, which you can have in your own room. Weather permitting, it is also possible to have breakfast in the spacious garden under the Mulberry tree overlooking the pond. For guests with special diets or preferences, we will gladly adjust the contents of picnic basket.
De Moerbei is centrally located on the Kikkertstraat, the tourist street of De Cocksdorp, several restaurants and stores within walking distance and in the summer months there is a lively market on the doorstep.
There is a boarding point for the Texelhopper diagonally across the street, these are wheelchair friendly and can take guests to wherever they want on the island. Texel has an enormous amount to offer! There are nice villages, museums, rare plants,
bijzondere vogelsoorten en recreatieve voorzieningen. Below we have listed some wheelchair-friendly excursion options for you.
Fantastisch verblijf in de mindervaliden kamer gehad. Ester en Norbert zijn zeer gastvrij, behulpzaam en vriendelijk! Wij komen terug!!

Als mindervalide is het bijna onmogelijk om een aangepaste kamer te huren. Gelukkig is er De Moerbei. Er is aan alles gedacht. Van douche tot bed. Zelfs de auto kun je voor de kamer parkeren. Kan het makkelijker. Mis je iets of wens je iets het wordt allemaal geregeld. Ze ontzorgen je helemaal. Top heel hartelijk bedankt voor dit geweldige verblijf in jullie BnB. Een aanrader.

It can be difficult for people with physical disabilities to access the beach. But not on Texel!
During the summer, beach wheelchairs are available for loan at various locations on the island. These wheelchairs with large plastic wheels (assistance required, not self-propelled) can be borrowed for up to two hours, for a voluntary maintenance fee. A walk or ride along the beach is an experience in itself. At several beach exits (posts 9, 12, 15, 20 and 28) there are concrete ramps on the beach, which make moving around with your own aid easier. The concrete slabs are there as of Ascension Day and are removed again in mid-October (or earlier if necessary) due to the storm season. Sometimes, during the summer season, the concrete slabs are extended on some beaches with so-called rolling mats, which then form a connection between the concrete slabs and the hard beach area.
COVERED WAGON JAN PLEZIER
Enjoy the beautiful nature from a covered wagon and get to places you would normally not easily get to! The Jan Plezier covered wagon has facilities for the disabled. There is an easy step and an extendable ramp. The wheelchair can be secured during the trip, if requested when booking.
From the port of Oudeschild, you will sail out onto the mud flats for a trip of about two hours. During the emptying of the net, you will receive an explanation of the catch. On the way back you will pass the places where the seals like to rest. Have your camera ready for unique photos!
That Texel has an interesting past can be seen everywhere on the island, the Texelaars love to tell about it in the various museums on the island, beautiful stories about the seals, the beachcombers and the sailors’ life. If you are on Texel, of course you want to see seals. In Ecomare, you can do so from very close by. While feeding, the attendant tells about the peculiarities of each animal and the ideals of Ecomare, the oldest seal sanctuary in Europe. A visit to the Aviation and War Museum Texel is also not to be missed. Behind the 1840s farmhouse Flora on Pontweg, between Den Burg and De Koog, houses the, as the beachcombers themselves say, “first, real and largest beachcomber museum in the world” the Shipwreck and Beachcombing Museum. Cultuurhistorisch Texel, housed in an authentic farmhouse, focuses on preserving the history of farm life on Texel.
