Our home

Our home is a detached house in a dead-end street (hardly any traffic) and very calm neighbourhood.
The house has a very nice luminous living room with large windows all around giving to the sunny garden. The sliding windows open to the terrace and garden. The living room has a dining area with seating for 6 people and a comfortable cosy lounge area with large, leather sofa's and a fireplace. It has hard wooden floors adding to the homey feeling. We have a wide screen cable TV with Netflix and WII and high-speed internet & surround music.
The kitchen has recently been renovated and is luminous and comfortable with all amenities and lunch table for 4 people.
Upstairs we have 2 bedrooms. A master bedroom with XXXL bed (our kids still like to sneak into our bed at night so we made the bed XXXL ;-)). We also have a smaller children's room with 2 single beds.
The renovated bathroom has a sink, bath/shower and toilet.
Our very sunny garden has everything to please the whole family : table with 6 chairs, comfortable relaxing chairs, a lounge corner, a delightful XXL hammock (4p) hanging in the shades of the trees, a large and safe trampoline surrounded by nets, a swimming pool for the kids (app 4m diameter).
The house is child-friendly and off course comes with all the toys ;-) (lego, playmobil, dolls, kapla,...)

Who we are

  1. We are a loving family with 2 kids : our son Elliot just turned 7 and our daughter Soetkin is 12. I am Mom Veronique (45) and my husband is Laurent (44). We are flexible, open-minded, well-educated, and nature-loving people with deep respect for life, nature, other people, ...
    We also have a family cat Scarlet, so we hope you love cats and will take care of her when being here ;-)
    My husband Laurent has his own Underwater Construction Company and works quite hard. I quit my career as a PR Manager a couple of years ago to stay at home with my small children and now I am training to be a psychotherapist.
    We would love if our children could experience all kinds of different cultures, countries,... in the coming years. We believe it is really important for their understanding, love and respect of the world, nature, other cultures, religions,..., for opening up their worldview and minds and at the same time it is a great way to create unforgettable memories as a family.
    But ... traveling extensively can be quite heavy on the budget so we thought that home-swapping could be a great way to see the world and to give others the opportunity to experience our wonderful little country Belgium.
    We hope that you will enjoy and take good care of our home and we will definitely do the same at your house.
    We are open to all kind of offers.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

In front of our house we have a very large open space which is the ideal playground for our children : basketball, football, rollerblading, biking... they can all do it right in front of the house.
Right in front of our house we are connected to the renowned and wonderful biking and walking trails next to the river Schelde our neighbourhood has to offer. Our bikes are free for you to use.
We are also spoiled with many very fine restaurants in beautiful settings.
Being located in the centre of Belgium our house is the perfect starting point for the (cultural) exploration of all the beauty Belgium has to offer : the gorgeous cities of Ghent, Brussels and Antwerp are all just half an hour away. The renowned city of Bruges is a 1,5h ride. The coast-side is also a 1,5h ride away.
Our kids (and we) love going to the beautiful and great playgrounds, the nice public swimming pool and children's farm we have close-by
