We hebben het erg naar ons zin gehad in het appartement van Sabien. Het is lekker ruim en ingericht met leuke spullen; we voelden ons thuis. Jammer genoeg hebben we Sabien zelf niet meer ontmoet, maar ze heeft de sleutel voor ons achtergelaten en duidelijk uitgelegd hoe alles in huis werkt. We komen graag een keertje terug.
I absolutely loved staying in Sabien's flat. It was very homely, quirky and fantastic. I really enjoyed the garden, the back bedroom, and all the beautiful plants that brightened the place up. It was close to everything, and in a lovely neighbourhood. Sabien was very easy to communicate with, and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend anyone stay here.
Charming neighbourhood, lovely host, cosy and spacious apartment. I can really recommend staying here. Thanks Sabien!
We had a very nice stay in Antwerp, in Sabien's cosy apartment. She is trustworthy, but very good of trust herself as well and that is a nice feeling. We had our own lovely shelter in the backyard, and the whole apartment for ourselves. Come and check it out!
It was a great stay in Sabien's apartment. First of all the neighborhood is so beautiful, very close to the city centre, that is easy to reach with one of Antwerps City Velos, which you can get just three minutes away on a very nice square, where you also find very nice restaurants to sit outside in the evening. The apartment itself is very beautiful, charming and spacious. We didn't meet Sabien in person, but her neighbors were so kind to provide the keys and everything else- it was just perfect. I can highly recommend to book Sabien's apartment!
Great location and nice, modern, clean flat. The Internet service was spotty at best and only available in the living room area. It was also a little different that besides the main entry door to the building from the street, there was no locks for the front door while in the building ! Had no issue, however for female guests that may be a point of concern. With that being said if I had the chance to return it would be 60/40.....
Good point about the internet, we will add that to the description of the flat so that people are prepared for the fact that they only have access in the living room and sometimes the dining room. We will also get a "proper" front door soon, but at the same time both us (2 females) and our little daughter have never had any security issues since the front door of the building is properly secure and are very friendly with our two upstairs neighbours who are completely trustworthy so we don't think we are in any way putting our guests in a insecure situation.
Good to have a more critical point of view though, makes us realise where we could improve.... thanks!
About the Host, Sabien
I'm a seasoned traveller, but currently (temporarily) settled and working as a language tutor at the university here in Antwerp. In my free time I do yoga, go for good coffees and beers and try to read if my energetic 2 year old daughter doesn't want me to join her in her little swimming pool in our garden or play hide and seek with her.
