In May 2011 Cynthia and I decided to start renting out our beach apartment to visitors. We had been using it for our family with 5 children before our move to Canada in 2013 so we can safely say it is suitable for large families. It is located on the beach at the north-side of the Ostend harbour, and offers a great beach and nature experience. Because of the private garden it is also the ideal place to bring your dog.
Thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows the dunes seem part of the garden. You will wake up to the waves beating on the beach and the wind whistling through the dune grass. Fortunately this location is not (yet) flooded with national or international visitors during high season, making your vacation a very peaceful experience. From our apartment you can start wonderful walks along the board walk, on the beach or in the dunes. If you like biking, the coast line (64 km) is a must for road bikers. The beach gives you miles of uninhibited “cross” biking and running.
A private parking space right in front of the entrance is available for you when you are arriving by car. Buses with departure from the train station in Ostend stop nearby if traveling by train.
We hope you will consider our apartement if you want to spend your vacation at the België coast.

The beach is a hidden gem for tourists that try to avoid large crowds and little space.
A 10 minute walk in the direction of Ostend brings you to the harbour where a boat awaits you to bring you free of charge to the center of Ostend.
