Els has really turned this place into something special. One would not expect this kind of retro-B&B in a holiday-town like ODK. the rooms are decorated old Parisian-style, whilst the bathroom is a creative mixture of old and modern. the breakfast in the garden is absolutely fantastic and is tailor-made to your personal wishes. we had 15 wonderful days and...

Decor romantic possibly but there is nothing romantic about about the lavatory behind a screen in the corner of the room, an "En Suite " to far that I would have liked mentioned in previous reviews. Maybe it, 's just me and this is normal in Belgium but as a trip advisor I'm mentioning it know to warn other Brits!

We stayed here last weekend (2 nights). There are 3 rooms, each named after one of the 3 daughters of the owner, who lives next door. She has done a marvelous job at creating a romantic athmosphere of a century ago. If you do not like pink/purple or black, do not go! Ditto for "David Hamilton" like nude pictures of... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome..One of the most authentic and picturesque houses, full of character from the beginning of the last century, recently renovated and exuding the atmosphere of a Paris boudoir of the 1920's: playful, titillating, somewhat naughty. Comfortable and tastefully decorated with a mix of luxurious fabrics and flea market furniture, floral wallpaper and velvet by the hostess herself who's also decoratrice. The guesthouse has been many times the inspiration for photographers of interior and fashion magazines.Villa Elsa is located in the village of Oostduinkerke, almost in the shadow of the Fisheries Museum and its cosy Estaminet "De Peerdevisscher" and right on the dunes and 1500 m from sea. The rooms are connected to the house and have their own private entrance, so you can come and go in complete freedom. Parking is free in the street. The ideal place for romantics. ... more   less
