www.whaaw.be: holiday homes with a family character

The family:

Dirk/dad, Charlotte/daughter and Lucas/son are a cosy family from the Kempen.

They started this rental project at the coast with a lot of love and devotion from the whole family. Today, they are proud of its realisation. Every member of the family has contributed to the realisation of this project:

Lucas, a civil engineering student, with his ultimate computer knowledge to virtually support Whaaw. Among other things, he takes care of the online reservations and the automatic mail you receive with the codes of your flat.

Charlotte, who lives relatively close to the coast, can quickly arrive on site if necessary. Charlotte already has a family of her own. And her son Alexander sometimes tests the child-friendliness of the rooms!

Dirk then takes care of the complete coordination, the architectural journey, the practical chores, the communication with the guests and the administration.

Holiday rentals with a family character in top locations worked out to perfection, that's Whaaw.


There is something for everyone in the neighbourhood of Westende-bad. For the sporty ones among you there is a tennis- and surf club within walking distance. There are also very nice parks with accompanying restaurants. There are tram stops at 5 minutes walking distance so a day trip to Ostend, Nieuwpoort, Knokke, ... is certainly in the possibilities.

The port of Nieuwpoort is an absolute must for families with or without children. Ten minutes on the tram or four kilometres walk along the beach and you arrive in Nieuwpoort. You can walk along the promenade, enjoy a nice terrace, do a little shopping, ...

De Panne (Plopsaland) is a must for families with children. Just under an hour and you can enjoy a day full of adventure. For those who like a bit of culture, a visit to Bruges is a must. From the station in Ostend you can get there by train in less than fifteen minutes.

Ostend also has a lot to offer in terms of culture. A visit to the open air museum in Raversijde will make you feel like you are in the line of fire of the First World War.
