About This Listing
Our bright and characteristic ground floor appartment is situated in a relatively quiet street in the young and vibrant north, only one street away from the very popular 'Park Spoor Noord'. Perfect for travelers who are willing to explore something more than the 'Grote Markt' and cathedral in Antwerp!
We decided to put our place on airbnb since we're away travelling quite often and love using airbnb ourselves. The appartment consist of an open kitchen with everything you need to make a proper breakfast, a dinner with friends or a midnight snack if you explored the Antwerp nightlife. There's a diner table and access to a small city patio. Further on you'll find the living room with a sofa and original fireplace and the bedroom on the street side with a good two-person matress. Both spaces have beautiful and warm wooden floors and are devided by these huge wooden manor doors! The spacious bathroom has a bath and a washing machine free to use.
In summertime, when it's nice and warm, there's one place we recommend: Park Spoor Noord! Only 1min away! On wednesday and friday there is a Market on the end of our street: Sint Jansplein.
But what to do on the rainy days which are much more common? You can go to one of the million nice coffee places for a nice cup, cake and something to read. Our favorites closeby: Broer Bretel, Viggo's, Caffènation and Normo. Good restaurants in the neighboorhood: Le Red Fox (not in weekends), Rode 7, Viavia (travelcafé). You get the best belgian fries at 'Frituur Jean' at the Ossenmarkt. You'll find supermarkets, banks, pharmacy's only 2 min away around Sint Jansplein.
To get to the appartment from the central station you can walk 15min or take bus (phone number hidden) and stop at Sint Jansplein or take bus 1 or 13 at the Leien and stop at Noorderplaats. A walk from the appartment to the touristic heart of Antwerp takes about 20min.
We hope we can make the best out of your stay in the small but vibrant city of Antwerp!

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time at Eline's place. Everything was perfectly clean, and the place is very nicely furnished. We felt very comfortable! Eline gave us lots of tips and good adresses of where to go in Anvers. She was always ready to help. A place to recommand in Anvers!
We had an amazing time at Eline's apartment! The high ceilings and characteristic doors leading to the bedroom give the house character and warmth. Eline gave us plenty of interesting places to visit on a rainy Saturday. We would definitely recommend the apartment to other travelers.
My girlfriend and I had a great time at Eline's apartment! We solely came to Antwerp to celebrate Christmas and the place made us feel right at home. The kitchen is well-equipped, there's a spacious bathroom and the place has a nice feel because of the high ceilings and overall decoration. Eline gave us plenty information about practicalities, things worth visiting and bars/ restaurants off the tourist grid. It's an easy 15-20 minute walk to the city centre and there's street parking available in front of the apartment. Would definitely stay there again!
My boyfriend and I had a great stay at Eline's apartment - charming it is indeed. It is located close to the Northern harbour and park and it's not too far into the city center. We felt very comfortable and would definitely recommend the flat to other visitors of Antwerp!
Beautiful place and wonderful hosts. You can't wish for much more. If you want to be close to everything you will enjoy it as much as we did. And... Antwerpen is great place to visit! They have amazing bear :-)
Wir hatten einen sonnigen und entspannten Aufenthalt in Antwerpen und der Wohnung von Eline und Roeland.
Die Innenstadt ist fußläufig zu erreichen und die Wohnung liegt in einem schönen Viertel! Die Wohnung ist toll und von der Terasse konnten wir beim Frühstück schon profitieren!
Es war wirklich eine tolle Unterkunft. Ich würde gerne nochmal wiederkommen. Vielen Dank!
About the Host, Eline
Hi there! I am 28 years old and work as an architect in a very nice, quite young architecture office: Bovenbouw Architectuur. Since 5 years, I live together with my boyfriend Roeland in Antwerp, Belgium. Architecture is my passion, but I enjoy loads of other activities besides exploring buildings. I played roller derby for 4 years (crazy full-contact all-female sports on old school rollerskates) and recently exchanged it for less violent yoga. I love travelling (and hiking), have studied a year in Montpellier, like meeting new people, inviting friends over for dinner, enjoy a good concert. I am known for always being busy doing something and the moments where you can find me just sitting in a couch are very rare!
