About this listing

I offer a comfortable room in my recently renovated house. Walk through the front door and public transport will take you very quickly to Leuven (student city), Brussels, … or walk through the back door and you are on the countryside (garden, fields, horses, abbey of Vlierbeek, pittoresque tavern “Rozenkrans” …)

The space

Furnished attic room (baptized as “Cuba room”). Room: 20 m², with extra heater (because one visitor had cold), rather for couples, as the bed is only 1m20 wide, table and 3 chairs, seat, rack, free WiFi

Guest access

You just enter through my house, you can of course always use the equipped kitchen with oven, and bathroom with bath and shower. With good weather, feel free to sit outside in my garden.
Just out of the garden, a narrow path through the fields leads to the pittoresque Abbey site of Vlierbeek, there is also a very cosy tarvern "Rozenkrans" (many Belgian beers!)
Connection (just across the street) to frequent public transport: Leuven ( or min), Brussels (45min)

Interaction with guests

I always have a good understanding with my guests, yet must admit, since I am usually quite busy, that I mostly do not have time to keep you company or show you around in Leuven. However, I can give you good advices about how to expore the neighbourhood for dining, hiking, jogging, bars, meeting people....

The neighborhood

Just out of the garden, a narrow path through the fields leads to the pittoresque Abbey site of Vlierbeek, there is also a very cosy tarvern "Rozenkrans" (many Belgian beers!)

At 500 m is a park with lakes, where it is nice to go walking, running or have a picknick.

At 2,5 km (frequent public transport) you are in the hart of Leuven - a pittoresque student town with lively places to have a coffee or beer outside.

Getting around

Connection (just across the street) to frequent public transport: Leuven ( or min), Brussels (45min)
Parking is free and as long as you want - although sometimes you will have to find a spot not in front of the door.

Other things to note

I will be so honest to mention the two disadventages on the room: the bed is only 1m20 wide (rather small for 2 persons) and the room is on the 2nd floor, whereas the toilet is on the ground flour. So now you know :-)

I stayed at Petra's place for three night during a conference at UK Leuven. The house is located in a very fascinating area near an Abbey, with lots of green. Downtown is reachable on foot but it would take a little bit, but in front of the house there's a bus stop with many rides. Petra is a very nice host and will let you feel at home. Great stay. Very recommended for the dynamic travelers.

I tavelled to Leuven for a seminar and had a perfect and easy stay at Petra´s home. Next time I would stay at her place again!

Petra was an amazing host. Me and my wife lived here for almost 1 month and felt right at home. The place is very cozy, beautiful parks are nearby, close to station and all in all a great location. Thank you for an amazing time.

I´ve been for three months in Petra´s place and everything was great. The room is big and comfortable with a very useful heater, enough places to put the clothes and a big table with chairs to work. It was like living in an independent apartment but sharing the kitchen and the bathroom. I was there to finish my PhD, so it was really a very great place. Petra let me park the bike in her storage room outside the house (very useful). The house was only 10 minutes cycling from the city center and very close to the house there is a Spar (Super Market), bakery, a very big and spectacular park in which you can relax and do some sport activities and a very beautiful Abbey with a great bar. I went with my car and I had no problems to park it neither with the security of the neighborhood. I specially recommend this house for those who want to have their independence but not spending as much money as living alone. Petra is a very nice person and also her son (he is lovely), but they have their life and their rhythm, so don´t expect to be like when you share a house with other students. In my case, it was perfect; it was exactly what I was looking for. So quality-price it was perfect: 10! If I had to go back to Leuven I would repeat.

Petra is an amazing woman and a wonderful host. I stayed with her for a month and I feel privileged to have shared that time with her and her son. I felt truly welcome and I hope to have Petra as a friend for the long run. With regards to the practical things... the house is beautiful, spacious, and airy. The kitchen is fully equipped. The backyard is wonderful and leads to hiking and biking trails. There is a picturesque abbey a short walk away with a tavern for a lovely afternoon or evening. The bus station is just across the street and the ride to the center of Leuven is about 10 minutes and there is a great supermarket 5 minutes away. The room is lovely and super cozy; it actually feels like a little flat and is quite private. I absolutely recommend Petra and I would be happy to stay with her again in the future. Thank you for everything Petra! Staying with you has truly touched my live! Biggest hug!
