A dream comes true: Working in an apartment with a sea view

Working by the sea and with a sea view has long been a dream of mine, which came true thanks to the holiday apartment provider: Novasol made it possible and provided me with an apartment with a sea view for a week.

There I was able to live and work directly in Vlissingen, in the Dutch Seeland, almost directly on the beach. A little break-workation, so to speak. My apartment was on the 6th floor of an apartment building with a balcony right on the beach boulevard and therefore a direct view of the sea.

How are the apartments?

The apartment itself was functional and nicely furnished: a bedroom, a children's room with two bunk beds (for four persons), an open, modern equipped kitchen with dishwasher and induction cooker, a dining and living area with sofa, as well as a bathroom and seperate toilet.

On top of that, for mine needs perfect, a balcony with a sea view, which is wonderful to work on. It lies for sure also because of the excellent and fast WLAN Unfortunately, only sun protection and air conditioning are missing, which of course is necessary at these temperatures Problem is - but this heat is also rather rare in these latitudes.

For six or seven people, it should be a little tight, for me there is enough space: I spend the morning on the balcony with writing and sea view, at night I leave for small things or shopping on.

Advantages and disadvantages of apartments

A drawback in this apartment house is certainly the very small number of elevators - only one on each side. This often means very long waiting times. For me, as someone who rarely books apartments, bringing bedding or towels is rather unusual, even if both would have been available locally for an additional cost.

Also that the final cleaning with 70 euro to book, I find something expensive. In other apartments, there were sometimes still practical remnants of spice, cleaning agent or toilet paper, here everything was completely cleared. It is convenient that a supermarket is within walking distance.

How do you find apartments with sea views?

For me, that is ultimately the big advantage of this apartment house in Vlissingen: the great location right on the sea with an excellent infrastructure at the same time. Even without a car, you can take a good week off for a work vacation and be really productive without having to worry too much about the logistics.

Here it is worth using a large provider such as Novasol, who still have a suitable one even in the summer selection of apartments and helps you flexibly to provide what you want, even at short notice.

Can you really relax during a workout?

A question I get asked over and over again: Can you really relax at a workation or is it just a holiday with lots of things Stress? My personal experience is that a work sabbatical can be a great way to recharge your batteries, gain new perspectives and increase productivity.

A workation can also be a good opportunity to experience new cultures and discover new places while at the same time fulfilling your professional commitments. With the advent of telecommuting and the increasing popularity of digital nomadism, workations among professionals who require flexibility and a balance between work and... privacy appreciate, more and more popular.
