About this listing
Welcome in Ghent! Elected by Lonely Planet as one of the most suprising cities in the world. Come and have a taste of it yourself.
By renting this apartment you're making an excellent choice. It' s on a unique spot in town, next to an historical abbey, the first settlement in the city ever. At your doorstep you'll enter a park which leads you to Portus Ganda, a charming inner city port. That includes an historical swimming pool. What you'll enjoy most is walking from here alongside the water to other parts of the city. At the watersides of Ghent where the locals enjoy strolling and jogging around, happiness is not far away
:-) From this part of town, where you'll be living it's only five minutes to the monumental city center.
The apartment is in a new house, built in 2010. We decorated it in style because we live there every now and then. It's 85m2, with a lofty feel. The kitchen has got everything a foodie can dream off: coffee machine with fresh beans, modern cutlery, dishwasher, blender, toaster and so on.There 's internet, a laptop, a big Loewe TV with blu-ray dvd for the best film & music experience, a comfortable king size bed (boxspring), washer & dryer for your clothes, a combi shower & bath for a relaxing time. Ghent offers you a lot of reasons to be out and our apartment will be the perfect extension of your "wauw"-experience! The apartment is 100% for your private use only, so you'll have all privacy.
It' a hot spot neighbourhood with a popular restaurant (locals hope it won't turn touristic :-) just around the corner. Also a few nice bars at the waterside. Supermarkets, butchers, bakeries and grocery stores are nearby. There are alle easily reachable by foot or you can use the bike we're providing.
You'll be 5 minutes away from a trainstation (Ghent Dampoort). Let us know if you're coming by train/car/...we'll send you the directions how to best reach the apartment.

Geert's place is perfect for 2 people and just as tidy as shown in the photos, search no more. It's a very short walk from the city centre and Gent-Dampoort, and at the same time in a quiet part of town. He has some good suggestions about local pubs and restaurants. We wish we had stayed for longer. Highly recommended!
Its lovely place to stay in Gent... apartment closes to city centre just 7-10mins walk. And very close from Gent Dampoort station just 5 mins walk but Geert is very kind and helpful. He waits us at the train station and pick up all our lugguages to the apartment.
Apartment is located on second floor with garden view and they also have lift in case you have big stuffs. Room is very modern decorate and cozy. All facilities is ready to stay and bed is very comfort and clean. Kittchen is very nice and big enough if you would like to cook.
I recommend this place to stay in Gent. Geert is very nice host and warm welcome.
Geert hat mit seiner freundlichen und an alles denkenden Art unseren Aufenthalt in Gent von der ersten Minute äußerst angenehm gemacht. Sowohl die Wohnung als auch seine Tips für Restaurants und Bars haben uns mehr als gerettet. Dafür hier nochmals unseren herzlichesten Dank. Besser geht es wohl kaum.
My girlfriend and I spent two really nice days in Ghent. The apartments is really spacious, the bed is really comfortable, the area is quiet but 5 min walk to the center, I would repeat again. Geert is a very nice person, he helped us a lot giving some recomendations (restaurants, ....) and with his fantastic maps he showed everything we needed to consider. Thanks Geert!
We stayed for a week but I wish we'd stayed longer! The bed and bedding (I always start with this) were super comfortable, with firm and soft pillows, and the bed itself is huge. The apartment was light and airy and clean and modern and we were so comfortable here, it immediately felt like home. The location is perfect, close to the center but quiet, close to the train station and right beside a lovely park.
Geert was a great host, very supportive and communicative, and all the reviews you read here are true, this is a super place and we would give it our highest recommendation.
The condo was stocked with essentials and the bed comfortable and linens clean!
Nous avons passé 2 excellentes nuits à l'appartement de Geert. La description était tout à fait exacte et outre le soin apporté à l'aménagement de l'appartement, nous avons été ravi des conseils de Geert qui nous a bien guidé en fonction de nos désidératas. Nous serions ravis de revenir chez Geert lors d'une prochaine visite à Gand, une ville magnifique et très accueillante.
