    Nice to meet you! We are Sander (34) and Roelien (40).

    We are looking for social, and fun beach lovers who have some experience in construction to help renovate Roelien and Sander's house in the city center of Sluis, The Netherlands.

    The house is less than 100m from the main shops, cafés, and restaurants and 10km from the beach and the amazing Nature Park Het Zwin. Riny's CrossFit box is also just around the corner.

    We are right at the Belgian border, 8km from Knokke-Heist, 18km from Bruges, and 35km from Gent. Antwerp and France are also less than an hour away.

    Sluis is well known for good food (home town of famous chef Sergio Hermans), fancy coffee places, and nice shops. The Municipality of Sluis also has the cleanest beaches in the Netherlands and the most hours of sun per year.

    After a few hours of helping you can do surfing, biking, hiking, supping, yoga, swimming, chilling at the beach, etc. We provide all the equipment.

    You will stay at the city camping within walking distance of the house. Sander owns a camping store and has his own tent brand. These spacious tents have mattresses, furniture, and even a wood stove.

    You'll have plenty of privacy, but we'll also organize a few activities. We are into sports, outdoors, cooking, architecture, discovering different cultures, personal development, entrepreneurship, and meeting like-minded people.


    So what's the story?

    Roelien and Sander got married in May 2020. Their honeymoon to Madeira got canceled due to the Pandemic. Instead, they decided to go to Sluis for a week.

    This is where they fell in love with Sluis. They met Riny, a local builder, and owner of the CrossFit box, and became friends. A few months later Roelien visited Riny again and joked about buying a house in Sluis.

    They literally got the cheapest house in Sluis, which also needed the most work. In fact, the neighbor already planned to build a parking lot.

    We have been working on the house since mid-June 2021 and now it's time to finish it and celebrate summer in Sluis.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    Sluis is a very special place within the Netherlands. You can only access the rest of the country via Belgium, by toll road, or boat. However, it's super centrally located if you are interested to see more of Europe. Therefore the people in Sluis are very much oriented toward Belgium. France is also less than an hour away, traveling to London will only take you 4 hours.

    This place looks typically Dutch with small brick houses and a windmill, but it feels somewhat Belgian. It's a special place that mixes the best of both cultures.
