Hello! Nice to meet you.
Let me guide your around my home!
--- Tell me, where is it? ---
It's 2,5 floor apartment in the middle of Antwerp: just an easy stroll (about 5 min) away from the Meir (Antwerp's main shopping street), trams, busses, train station and rental bikes.
Also close to the Zoo, the cinema, and some nice restaurants and (summer) bars.
--- What does it look like? ---
Well, it's located in a typical old mansion (think: wooden floors, authentic elements, and very light: we love sunshine :)
1st floor: laundry room & toilet
2nd floor: living room & kitchen
3rd floor: my bedroom, the shared bathroom (shower + toilet) and your place to stay
You'll have your own private living room (couch, living room table, ...) & desk, with stairs up to the sleeping area. The bathroom is shared (with me). There's a double sleeping bed/futon (with a new standard bed matrass) and a fan for summer days & heating for winter days.
Maximum 2 people can stay at the appartment. There are small speakers you can plug in on your iPod (or other music players :)) to play music, a blanket to get cozy in the couch, soap & shampoo in case you forgot & towels.
--- And what about the city? ---
You'll get a map & booklet filled with local hotspots. Antwerp is only 45 minutes (by train) from Brussels or Ghent. If you want to explore any other cities - I'm happy to help you out as well - just let me know :)
You can always take a look at the AirBNB Guidebook I filled in to check my favourite spots in the city.
--- Any practicalities? ---
Only one: smoking is allowed, but only on the balcony.
--- Can I park my car? ---
(1) Yes, you can park your car in the street but don't forget to pay (from 9 - 19h - 0,60 to 1,00 €/hour).
(2) If you like to park your car inside, there are paid indoor parkings around the corner as well € 18 a day.
(3) The only free option is a 30 min walk or 10 min tram ride away, at the docks.
--- Good to know ---
My apartment is officially registered as a guesthouse and therefore meets all the required safety regulations set by the city council.
Take a look around, and do let me know if you have any more questions!
Laura's place is fantastic and in a great location. She was a wonderful host and accommodating when I needed to have some friends over in the evening. It is fun to see her design sense and the care with which she keeps her place.
I had a great stay at Laura's apartment. It is decorated with taste and warmth, and there is plenty of information on what to do in Antwerp. The room is actually an office/sitting area downstairs and a cozy bed area upstairs, so it's almost like a suite.
I didn't meet Laura personally as she was out of town for work but her mother Linda was there for the check-in and check-out. Linda is likeable and welcoming, and everything went very smoothly.
we had some really great days in antwerpen and a perfect time in the beautiful apartment.
it was great to wake up underneath the roof and plan our day trips to brugge, gent and brussels.
we enjoyed it all very much :)

We stayed one night at Laura's place and it was perfect for what we needed. The room is charming and it's very cozy to sleep there. It's located conveniently close to the main station and the city center. In the room you'll find printed personal tips and other material on local activities.
The house is quite, clean and comfortable and feels personal. We only met Laura for a brief 15 minutes, but we're sure she's super friendly and we'd love to stay there again.
