This cute little house has been renovated 2 years ago and is fully equipped (kitchen with fridge, hot plates, oven, toaster … washer, bath, hair drier, wifi, …) It accommodates a kitchen, bathroom, living room, one bedroom and a rooftop terrace. Although it is only 90 sqm the rooms are spacious and sunny because of their high ceilings and big windows.
When you rent the house, you'll have it for yourself during your whole stay. There is no tv but I assure you that in the vibrant city of Ghent you won't even have time to think about it! There is always a concert somewhere and in the summer there are plenty of festivals to hang out 'till late at night.
You'll find everything you need in the kitchen (pots and pans, coffee and tea, sugar, salt, pepper, oil, …), in the bathroom (shampoo, lotion, towels, hairdryer) and in the bedroom as well (sheets, pillows, blankets, …) so you'll feel right at home.
The house is located at 20 minutes walk from the city center and 5 minutes walk from a medium sized natural park (perfect for a sunny Sunday picnic). There is also a bus stopping right in front of the house, taking you directly to the city center in less than 10 minutes. If you really want to mix in with the locals, you might want to bring your bikes. Ghent is a real biking city.
From the main train station (Gent-St-Pieters) it takes 20 minutes to reach the house by bus. A taxi would cost 15-20 euro.
Parking is free in most streets around the house.
Karen's uitgebreide info over Gent vooraf aan ons verblijf beloofde al veel goeds. En niets was minder waar.
Karen tipte ons om fietsen mee te nemen, wat ik iedereen wil aanraden. De stad is goed te belopen, maar met een fiets heb je toch meer bewegingsvrijheid en kun je meer van de stad zien We hebben een plezierig verblijf gehad in Karen's huis, wat netjes en mooi is ingericht. En we hebben erg genoten van Gent. Een aanrader voor een paar dagen Gent!
Mooi, klein en zeer net huisje. Niet ver van het centrum. Goed verblijfadres voor een paar dagen Gent. Wij hebben genoten
Karen's apartment was exactly as advertised- cute and within a nice walk to the center of Ghent. We did not have the opportunity to meet Karen as she was at work when we arrived/departed, but she made very easy arrangements for us to get the key. Karen had clear and helpful notes about her apartment and a very nice collection of guides/maps for the city. We took a map and had a great day getting lost and then found again in Ghent. In the evening, we walked back to the apartment after seeing a movie, and felt safe. We slept very well because the house was quiet and the bed was comfortable. The steep stairs, gave us a moment's pause as the bed is upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs, but helpful lights and a firm grip on the railing made middle of the night trips no problem. The next morning, after a bracing cup of coffee and the leftover tart that came with the key (Thank you Karen! That was so sweet.), we were ready for another day of exploring. We would, without hesitation, stay Karen's apartment again.
Had a fantastic stay at Karens place and overall experience was faultless. Lovely clean house with everything you need for a relaxing stay and big comfy bed! Would highly reccomend to anyone thinking of staying in Ghent.
Gorgeous little apartment in Ghent. Karen provided us with everything we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay!
A 15-20 min walk from the centre but close to some excellent places to eat (eg. Volta), as well as a huge organic supermarket, bakeries etc. for self caterers. Even though the weather wasn't the greatest, we found it no problem walking in to town. Otherwise there is a direct bus nearby and an easy tram to the train station.
Karen left us some great recommendations for places to visit in Ghent as well. Check out her travel guide and enjoy!
Séjour très sympa chez Karen. Maison impeccable, très agréable, bien décorée.
Bien chauffé, pièces sympas, lit énorme!!
Karen nous a attendu alors que nous étions un peu en retard et nous a donné des infos pour notre séjour aussi bien sur les visites que les loisirs.
La maison ne se situe pas trop loin du centre. Places gratuites pour se garer dans la rue.
Karen has a beautiful home and we loved our stay there in Gent! The house itself is very modern and has a lovely feel to it and Karen goes above and beyond to ensure you will love your stay. We were welcomed with some delicious sweet treats from the local bakery and the house is well equipped with everything you need. She even allows guests to help themselves to her food and drinks for a contribution which is very generous and thoughtful for those arriving late. Karen was very quick at replying to emails and helpful throughout everything. I can definitely recommend this property!
Magnifique séjour dans cette jolie maison très bien tenue par Karen qui a un grand sens de l'accueil! Merci pour tout!
Karen's place was great! Very cosy, clean and everything we needed was there. It was nice that we could use some of her food (for a contribution), because we didn't manage to do grocery shopping. The house is a 20 min walk from the centre. All in all, I can fully recommend this place for a stay in Ghent.
Karen was a great host and suggested some ideas which was great fun.
The house is closer than we thought it would be to the city centre, only took my wife and I 15-20 mins walk max.
The house has everything you need in it, we will certainly be back for a visit. Thanks for making our short stay a memoribrial one!
