About this listing
Welcome to my large and bright apartment on the fifth floor with a view of the skyline of Antwerp. It is situated on the Sint-Jansplein, one of the largest squares in the city in a multicultural and upcoming neighborhood. The Central Railway Station, the city center and trendy Park Spoor Noord are all a short walk by foot.
Sometimes Giants and Elephants pass by... really ! If you don't believe: check the pics.
The apartment (120 m2) has been renovated entirely in 2012 and has wooden floors throughout the whole space. There is a spatious living room with vintage furniture, tv, dvd and stereo. The large windows on the west offer beautiful views of the sunset. The large open kitchen with cooking island is equipped with a fridge, a freezer, a microwave/hot air oven, a gas stove with five pits and all the amenities you need. There are two bedrooms: the main bedroom has a large (180x200cm) ergonomic bed and lots of storage space. More people can sleep in the second bedroom, now used as an office space, on an extra mattress. The second bedroom is open towards the living room and both bedrooms give access to a large, quiet, balcony (10m2) at the back of the apartment. The spacious bathroom has a sink, a bath-tub and there is a walk-in shower. Between restroom and bathroom there is a separate room with washing machine and dryer.
If necessary, a parking place can be provided in a parking garage next door, where there is also a bike at your convenience.
In front of the apartment there is a 'vélo-station', the famous handy city bikes.
At the square front door, twice a week (Wednesdays and Fridays till 1PM) there is a market, were you can find fresh fruit, cheese, fish, honey, chicken, coffee, ...
About the Host, Gert
Together with my lovely dog Boris I live in a sunny flat which has a nice view over a big square in the North of the city centre. Sometimes in the weekends I spend some time in Ghent, where my boyfriend lives, or head to the coast.
I adore snowboarding, so several weeks in winter I go to the French Alps to enjoy the slopes of the huge PortesDuSoleil ski area. Also in summer I can appreciate the mountains for hiking, mountainbiking and rafting, but ... in general I'm a city dweller.
At the moment I'm planning an extension of my flat at the roof of the building to have extra space and 2 nice roof gardens.
