Creator of Sophibee
Home – family, friends, dog, playing chess, books, rowing, swimming and learning to speak Portuguese.
I live in a beautiful small village, just 30 minutes from Amsterdam, with my husband, our two teenage daughters and our Scottish Terrier dog Jock.
Work – travel, copywriting and pictures
I’ve been working for over 15 years as a Sales & Marketing professional in the luxury segment of the hospitality industry, my true professional passion. And the reason for launching Sophibee. At Sophibee, I love to write about remarkable family offers at luxury hotels.
Sophibee’s blog launched in April 2018. A family’s daily inspiration on luxury family travel, hotels & resorts, travel reviews, food, lifestyle and theme & water parks.
Our BabyMoon platform launched in 2006 and inspires expecting couples with the most luxurious and unique babymoon experiences at the finest hotels worldwide.
The BabyMoon website, as well as Ilonka, has been quoted in The New York Times, Vogue, Elle, GQ Magazine and many parenting and lifestyle magazines around the globe.
