About this listing
Spacious, very charming and sunny apartment in the heart of Antwerp. Vintage, fashion, museums, history, little squares, charming streets and nice resto's are all within walking distance. Welcome in the most attractive neighborhood of Antwerp.
Very bright, sunny apartment in the famous antique street of Antwerp. Wanna feel like a bohemian? If you ask me, this is the best location you will find. You can't have it more central, more trendy, more vintage. Really, take a look at the pictures, where I point out the distance to several highlights and a few of my favorite spots.
Although you feel Antwerp's heart beating, you will have a really good sleep at night. The double bed, in the back of the apartment, is perfect. This place is perfect for one or two people. As a guest you can use all the facilities: spacious bathroom with bath, shower, washing machine, a fully equipped kitchen with oven, stove and dishwasher, iPod station and free wifi. More features are: it's sunny, at the first floor, you will overlook a small square, A-location, 80m2 big, huge terrace in the back, wifi.
My home is situated in an easygoing neighborhood where the keyword is: vintage. You are in de famous Kloosterstraat, which means that you're surrounded by antique & vintage shops and all kinds of cool places to have breakfast, lunch or dinner. My house is not really trendy or modern, but it has a sunny and worldly vibe. I exchange houses a lot - see me as of working nomad who loves to live and work in inspiring cities and places - and everyone who has stayed here would love to come back, because they loved the authentic feel, which they describe as: travellers feel, yogi feel, journalist/writers feel.
My place is excellent for citytrippers and bohemians, but as an extra it's also really convenient if it's your intention to work as well. Lots of city hoppers, travellers, yogi, working nomads and free souls have stayed in my apartment for a weekend or longer period of time. If work is one of the reasons for your visit to Antwerp, know that you will find a very nice workspace overhere. My desk (a big table) is located in the frontroom which is full of bright light. From behind the desk you will overlook a square and if you fancy a break there's a terrace in the back and there are lots of coffeebars around.
My house is full of natural light, which you can't really see at the pictures: (sorry for the backlight). The kitchen, sleeping room and bathroom don't have that bright light as my living room, but don't worry, the vibe is good.
You, bon vivant, I wish you a very nice stay.
