Private landlords Anke & Hans

Enjoy our personal rental

Private landlords Anke & Hans have been renting out holiday apartments in Ostend since 2013. Their customers appreciate their personal service, warm contacts and good care to ensure that the holidays run smoothly. Anke has been renting out her apartment on the sixth floor of a recently renovated building on the Zeedijk in Ostend since 2013. Since 2018, Hans also offers his loft on the 5th floor of the same Zeedijk for holiday rental.

Landlord Anke: "One day I will wake up with a view of the sea", I predicted

As a child I didn't particularly like that sand between my toes. But when I walked on the beach in Ostend at the age of 22, I was 100% sure: one day I would not only walk on the beach, but also look at it from my lazy chair and keep looking. I can still hear me say: “Later, if I wake up here at the weekend with a view of the sea, then…”, not the slightest hesitation, not even a “maybe”. In retrospect, quite a bold statement for a student whose house-garden-baby-tree life had yet to begin. “One day dreams will become reality, as long as you believe in them”, I sang time and time again as a child with Children for Children. Maybe I owe it to the fact that I believed in it so hard, because in 2012 I became the owner of the apartment. Since then, I do indeed regularly wake up at the weekend with a view of the sea.

Correct lady of the house Anke, friendly and grateful. The bubbles were a warm welcome. Me and my granddaughter had a super leave. Thank you Anke for everything. "

Landlord Hans: "Fantastic to dive into the waves every day"

"Do you like the sea or the mountains the most?" I never quite knew what to answer when I was asked that question. As a child I went hiking in the mountains with my parents, holiday after holiday. Even afterwards I kept looking for the vastness of the mountains. I loved the mountain tops. Their beauty and strength. But the sea also attracted me. I enjoyed days in and around the water. When I met Anke in Ostend, I immediately fell in love. On Anke and on the sea. The sea: its vastness, its beauty, its power. Just like the mountains, but close by. In addition to our passion for each other, Anke and I have also shared a passion for the sea ever since. As icing (or is it passion fruit?) on the cake, I became the owner of in 2018 the Loft, with a view of the most wonderful swimming pool in the world. Those who walk by regularly see me diving into the waves. Fantastic right!
