The Space

You want to know if this apartment is clean, safe, cozy, roomy, friendly, and conveniently located, right? The answer is yes, to all of that!

In a nutshell:
- complete appartment with kitchen and garden
- riverside location, quiet area
- historic city center at 2km (nice walk!)
- also in walking distance: supermarkets, train station, bus station, park, college & university
- free wifi
- friendly and helpful hosts ;-)
- we give 10% of our income from airbnb to an organisation that cares and finds new homes for abandoned and lost cats
- animal friendly

Some highlights:

- great location in Ghent, at 2 km (20 min. walk) from the city centre. Short walk to bus stop, the congress center, park, movie theatre. Also close to the highway entrance.

- you have your own place to cook. the kitchen has a stove, oven, refridgerator and microwave, utensils, blender, coffee maker, pots etc

- one king size beds fits two people. if you are three or four, we can put an extra air matress (a big, thick, comfortable two person matress)

- you have your own little terrace and garden (where you can smoke if you want - no smoking in the house please)

- supermarkets, bakery, restaurants and a health food store within walking distance.

- all the privacy you need (we live upstairs; separate entrance)

- we will be glad to give you tips and answer all your questions about your visit. Several English language tourist guides (Ghent and Belgium) are available for you.

- Ghent is a great home base to visit other historic cities in Flanders, like Antwerp, Bruges or Brussels. They are all a short train ride away, and we are a 15 minute walk from the train station.

- If you are vegetarian/vegan, let us know and we'll provide you with more info on places to eat.

- we speak Dutch, English, French and some German/Spanish/Portuguese

- if you welcome cats, you can let them in from the garden

- if you bring your own animal, let us know and we'll prepare a comfortable spot for him/her

- parking space in front of the house is just 3.5 € for a whole day; or park your car for free a five minute walk further down the street

- please note that the appartment is a little below ground level (with large windows on both sides), which means that in summer the appartment remains comfortably cool, but can also, depening on the weather, be a bit more humid than an average room.

Oh and don't underestimate Ghent. It's too much for one night (see, for instance (URL HIDDEN)

Guest Access

This spacious basement appartment with small city garden is situated at the river and is a mere two kilometers from the historic city center.
It has a wide living room+bedroom with a double bed (1.80m wide), a separate kitchen, bathroom and toilet (towels and linnen are included of course) and an ample hallway. We have an additional two person air matress, so four people can fit in this apartment.

Interaction with Guests

We live right above you and can help you with whatever you need. During office hours we are at work but you can reach us through mail, phone, text...

The Neighborhood

Great location in Ghent, in the so called "art district", at a 15 min. walk from the city centre. Short walk to bus stop, the congress center, musea, park, movie theatre. Also close to the highway entrance.
Twenty min. walk from the train station.

Getting Around

The city center is within walking distance, but you can also take a bus that stops close to us. Train station is also within walking distance, so you can use our location as a base for visiting other cities like Brussels, Antwerp, Bruges... all a trainride away (30 - 50mins.)

We suggest two days and nights in Ghent, during which you could do the following:
day 1: historic centre (Belfry, Cathedral...) in the morning; Count's Castle, Patershol, Caermersklooster, Design Museum... in the Afternoon; evening walk and dinner at night. Day 2: the musea (STAM and SMAK) in the morning; shopping in the afternoon. Maybe a concert or a bar at night.
We have tourist English tourist guides available for you.

Other Things to Note

If you like cats: some of our critters may tap your window, showing you they'd love to come in, but it's up to you to let them in or not :-)
