The space

6th floor with elevator.
Apartment from 1956 recently renovated, preserving authentic atmosphere. With large living room (50m²), 2 bedrooms (14m² and 20m²), kitchen, bathroom, balcony (8m²), ...
It is usually a showroom to Belgian designers and personal pied-à-terre for weekends with friends. We like sharing it with people who respect the place as it is and handle it with care.
We like to keep the neighbours happy: they love quietness. The neighborhood offers 100 opportunities for wilder evenings.
7 minutes walk from the central station with direct connection to Brussels (45'), Ghent (45'), Bruges (1h25'),...
We provide sheets and towels.

We do prefer longer stays. Reservations for less than 3 nights will only be accepted last minute.

Authentiek ruim appartement van 125m² uit 1956 met zeer lichte woonkamer (50m²) die uitkijkt over het park en 2 slaapkamers (14m² en 20m²) op de Rubenslei.
Op originele gerestaureerde parketvloer.
We behielden de originele keuken en badkamer maar vullen aan met modern comfort.
Zonnig balkon vanaf de middag en in de avondzon.
De grote pauwenprent aan de muur is van Ingrid Khan, even mooi als fragile.
We hebben de ruimte nodig als showroom en plaatsen niet te veel meubilair, maar alle stuks worden uitgezocht en gekozen in de sfeer en stijl van dit fifties appartement; we vonden een Knoll tafel met marmer blad, Eames stoelen of de messing tafeltjes van onbekende oorsprong.
De grote kamer heeft een dubbel Auping bed (180cm), de kleine kamer heeft twee bedden van 80cm en heeft haar authentieke dressingkast.

Dit is onze werkplek en tevens onze pied-à-terre. We willen dit graag delen met mensen die dit waarderen en er zorgzaam mee omgaan.
De buren houden we graag te vriend: ze houden van rust. De buurt biedt vele mogelijkheden voor een drukkere avond.

Liefst spreken we ter plekke af voor het overhandigen van de sleutels. We wonen zelf niet in Antwerpen maar zijn wel ter beschikking als je iets nodig hebt.
Tot gauw.

We really enjoyed our stay in this appartement, it is very spacious, functional, comfortable and warm despite freezing temperatures outside. Perfect for a family stay. It is within walking distance of the railway station and the old city centre, but quiet area around the park. Debora is very friendly and accommodating, thank you for being a nice host. The kitchen could do with a few more utensils if you're the cooking type, and some wineglasses, but it did nbot take any of the charm away of this beautifull appartement. We will quite likely come back here- Wim

We had an amazing stay! The apartment is huge, big enough for three generations to share comfortably. Very functional, everything worked well and then the added bonus of the in-house washing machine which came in very handy.

Debora met us promptly with the keys and was nice and helpful in telling us about the flat. The rooms are large, sparcely furnished (as shown in their photographs). If you want a homely place then this is not for you, but it is exactly as described. Very good shower over the bath. Basic kitchen but we didn't want to cook so that was fine. The location is less than 10 mins walk from the station and about 20 mins to the main square. It was a bonus to be overlooking the trees and green of tlhe park.

wij zijn Jo en Debora.
Het appartement uit 1956 vonden we in geheel authentieke staat en we restaureerden zo getrouw mogelijk;

Doorgaans dient het als werkplek en showroom voor Debora, die mode-ontwerpers vertegenwoordigt.
Door zijn unieke ligging is het intussen ook onze uitvalsbasis voor vakantieweekendjes in Antwerpen.

Tussen de modeseizoenen stellen wij het graag ter beschikking. De rust van de buren respecteren we graag.
Jo en Debora
