For kids who like to travel with their parents to the friendly Belgian countryside;-) . As a large family ourselves, we know that families sometimes need 2 rooms when traveling;) So, we offer a spacious master bedroom with a kids’ play area & a parent lounge, as well as a second extra bedroom, giving parents (or kids) a chance to kick back and relax while the kids (or parents) are asleep;)

The space
The Home (Inside).
Both rooms are located on the same floor (upstairs) of our home. The master bedroom is a large beautifully lit room that provides a lovely view of the front and back gardens, the newly built stream and the adjoining forest in the back. It is equipped with a custom made California king size bed (220x200), a wash stand, a lounge/play area, and tire swing (for children of every age)!

The second bedroom is located on the same floor and also enjoys the natural sunlight and views of the gardens, pond and forest. This cozier room can be used as the bedroom for the children or the parents or as a lounge as well. We will accommodate whatever our guests prefer.

Guests are welcome to share our recently renovated kitchen as well as our newly renovated, Japanese inspired bathroom with 'Rain Shower' and 'Ofuro' -Japanese hot tub (no-bubbles).

We are Koen and Elizabeth. We have three lovely boys and little girl that keep us happy and busy;-) We travel all over the world for work and love that our family is constantly exposed to people from different cultures with different perspectives. We always have friends and colleagues from around the world stay at our house, so opening our home to Airbnb was a natural step. We love having people stay with us in one or both of our rooms when we are home. And when we go on vacation or out-of-town for the weekend, we also love to open our home so that other guests (families, friends, etc) can enjoy the slow, easy-going, and friendly Limburg experience...and the pastries (Limburgse vlaai;-)
