About this campspace

A nice, quiet spot at the back of the garden. Just big enough to pitch your tent and enjoy. With the waterbus to Antwerp. Real holiday feeling or walking in the polder and bird watching or just playing in the garden.

My name is Christel, I have 2 children and I work in education. I'm in love with my garden, but it's just too big for me. I like that others enjoy it too.

Tips

  • artisan goat cheese, strawberries, chocolate ... all nearby.

  • The polder is a beautiful piece of nature for walking and cycling.

  • In the street you have a petting zoo where you can eat well and the children can play.

We cycled on the art cities route. Very beautiful circuit, well signposted. The Christel Garden was our fourth stop.

How was the contact with the host?
Christel was very welcoming and offered us a refreshing drink upon our arrival and lent us her garden table. Very beautiful little garden, calm and relaxing. Chemical toilets, water, fridge, kettle, electricity are available in the garage near the garden. We were able to walk to the departure of the water bus which took us to Antwerp.

Tips for new guests?
Recommended stopover near Antwerp thanks to direct access to the water bus.

It was a nice place. Lovely garden, electricity, refrigerator, water and a chemical toilet in the garage.
We visited Antwerp and the Trollbos near De Schorre.

How was the contact with the host?
supper. We were even allowed to have breakfast on her terrace, because it was raining.

Fine! The place was exactly as described. Christel herself was not there but we were welcomed by her daughter.
Communication in advance went very smoothly and we received information about road works, so that we could adjust our plans accordingly.

How was the contact with the host?
Fine

Tell us about your experience
Our first time “camping in someone's garden” was a success. Nice place for our tent, cheerfully lit in the evening with colored lights, there was a picnic table available and the garage had water, a fridge and cupboard with eating utensils available and a chemical toilet. More than I expected! Even a sweet cat to welcome us.

How was the contact with the host?
We were able to make clear agreements in advance. Our chats were cordial and fast.

Tips for new guests?
Kruibeke means to me: the start of the traffic jam to Antwerp, half an hour or more. It was nice to get to know the village behind that frustrating name ❤️

Tell us about your experience
We did not find it so easy that there was no fixed and shielded sanitary room and no running water with a sink. I didn't say this to Christel, because she was so nice, but it made the stay very difficult.

How was the contact with the host?
Very good!

Tips for new guests?
Just ask if a sink has already been installed and the toilet is in a private room. And if you want to ask the bed downstairs can still be folded so that you can use the kitchen for example or sit in the van for a while :)

It is a nice garden for a city / town. The facilities are at such a low level that OK would never dare to offer this for a fee. If I hadn't had to pay in advance, I wouldn't have wanted to pay and I probably would have looked for another address. The sanitary facilities consisted of a chemical toilet on a dishcloth next to the bicycles in the garage. Also not very clean. In the morning the chemical toilet was full, which made it very dirty. the window behind it had a curtain that was too small which felt quite uncomfortable. The washing facilities are a garage sink in a corner with only cold water and no mirror, shelf or hooks. You can also hear the nearby motorway, so that the Oasis of tranquility could only be approached after plugging in earplugs.

How was the contact with the host?
The owner was not at home. We were received by her son, who briefly told us what was (not) there. Furthermore, only seen a man busy in the house in the morning who did not greet us.

Tips for new guests?
Better find another address
