Since 2013 Anke rents her apartment on the sixth floor of a recently renovated building on the Zeedijk in Ostend. Since 2018 Hans has also been offering his loft on the 5 floor of the same Zeedijk for holiday rentals.
"One day I will wake up with a view of the sea", I predicted
As a child, I was not so fond of that sand between my toes. But when I walked to the beach in Ostend on my 22ste, I knew the 100% for sure: I would not only walk on the beach, but also look and watch from my lazy chair. I can still hear it saying: "Later, when 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 harsh statement for a student whose house-garden-baby-tree-life still had to start. "One day dreams become reality, as long as you believe in it", as a child I sang along with Children for Children time and time again. Perhaps I owe it to the fact that I believed so hard in it, because in 2012 I became the owner of the Apartment. Since then, I have been waking up regularly at sea 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. "

"Fantastic to dive into the waves every day"
"Do you like most of the sea or the mountains?" I used to never know what to answer when I asked that question. As a child, I went walking in the mountains with my parents, vacation after vacation. Afterwards I always searched 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: her grandeur, her beauty, her strength. Just like the mountains, but close by. Apart from our passion for each other, Anke and I share a passion for the sea since then. As cherry (or is it passion fruit?) On the cake, I became 2018 owner of the Loft, with a view of the most wonderful pool in the world. Whoever walks by, sees me regularly dive into the waves. Fantastic!
