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.

This was my first experience with Airbnb and I felt very confident with Geert, who was a friendly reliable communicator right from the beginning. He responded to all my email enquiries instantly, advised me of good places to visit and helped me prepare very well for the trip. The apartment is beautiful - even better than the photos and has all the facilities you need to feel like a home away from home.
Thanks Geert for making my first Airbnb experience such a comfortable one!
Geert was a great host and the apartment was perfect with everything we needed. Made our time in Ghent even more special. Cannot reccomend enough. Thank you Geert!
We hebben weer een heerlijk weekend gehad in appartement van Geert. Het appartement ligt op goede locatie waarvandaan je makkelijk de stad in kan lopen. Geert is makkelijk te bereiken voor vragen en het appartement is schoon en alles is mooi en aanwezig. Geert had zelfs ontbijtspulletjes klaar liggen. Dit was de 2keer dat ik in dit appartement ben geweest en zal het aan iedereen aanraden en mocht ik zelf weer een keer naar Gent gaan dan hoop ik dat Geert weer plek heeft. Dit appartement is een absolute aanrader!
Perfect place to stay, can only be strongly discouraged.

Lovely apartment in a great location within walking distance to all attractions, restaurants and bars. Geert was a great host, very helpful and all recommendations were of the highest quality and thoroughly enjoyable. Would highly recommend! Thanks for a great stay :)
Het appartement is heel goed in orde en heeft een goede ligging vlak bij het centrum van Gent, maar toch net iets rustiger. Geert is een aangename gastheer. We voelden ons zeer welkom.
We hebben er echt van genoten! Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar... Een aanrader dus!
Geert was extremely welcoming to us! He even picked us up from the train station. After picking us up, he gave us a thorough orientation to the apartment and the city's offerings. We were surprised and thankful to find that the fridge was stocked with some fresh food for us to get started with our stay in Ghent. The apartment is superbly clean, modern, and felt very safe. It is located perfectly. It was quiet and calm at night, yet close enough to the activity of the city center that we walked from the apartment each day to explore this beautiful city. This is the best Air BnB experience we have had yet!! We highly recommend it!
