  • Description


    Hi, We are the Withouck Family, Kris, Mie,and our kids; Inne(23), Erien (22)and Jorik(18). We love to explore new places, meet new people. We lived in Asia for 10 years and live no partly in Belgium partly in Bangkok. We like to welcome people from all over the world in our new home here in Oostende. It is a very charming and old house we have. The house is in the center of Oostende, 5 minutes walking to the beach. Oostende is the only real city at the Belgian coast. There is always something to do here. If you like to explore more of Belgium we are on walking distance from the 'coast tram'and the railway station is only 15 minutes walking, or you can take public buses. Brugge, a must see here in Belgium it is 15 minutes with the train. They are also very nice cycle paths in the area;we have bikes you can use. The house is old and needs some renovations. It is big and we need help with cleaning and maintenance. If you can help us with this you are very welcome to stay with us.
