Rita and Edward wrote an insulting email to us following our stay, and I was choked given the previous good communication we had. We had very good interactions with people in the past, and are tidy people. They told us we left the housse in an inappropriate state, which is wrong. They complained that we did not do the dishes correctly, and clean the kitchen thoroughly, we left recycle in the wrong bag, that we used too many bed sheets and towels, and their laundry detergent! Of course we left diaper in the rubbish, what is wrong about that? We did the dishes, we vacuumed the housse, we removed the bed sheets, and we left the house in a correct state. We are paying a fee for cleaning, so I think we did already a lot. We are renting the entire house, so we expect to use as many bed sheets and towels as we wish. They never told us we could not use the laundry detergent, in previous renting we did so, and it never posed a problem. You may thus think that the house is in a perfect state, but we could not use one toilet and the shower because they were leaking. One day there was a roof leak and water was dropping from the shower into the bedroom! I do not recommend this place, not because of the location that was lovely, but because of this insulting communication, and the roof, shower and toilet leaks throughout the house.

Response from Rita & Edward:
This diatribe is so sad. The house was rented to 2 persons, but after the guest left it was obvious that the house had been occupied by four people. All consumables and all linen had been used, and our cleaning people reported that the house was in utter disarray and with trash strewn all over. We ordinarily vet guests very carefully, and we were disappointed. We have decided that we will not host this guest in the future.

Very comfortable, 15 minutes walk from both the train station and the central market area. Lots of shops and restaurants within minutes. Abuts a quiet, peaceful park. There is some street noise associated with being in a busy, student neighborhood. The house is equipped with everything we needed. Good wifi. Overall great experience.

We really enjoyed our stay in the CityCenter Family Home. Immediately upon booking, Edward was in contact to ensure all of our questions were answered. We were met as scheduled for check-in, and were in contact with the host during our stay. The house was ideal for a conference at the university, within walking distance to everything, and just a lovely place to unwind after a full day of non-stop work. Wifi was very strong (enough for all four of us), great hot water, everything you need in the kitchen, etc. So glad we opted to stay in the home and not in a hotel. Really made the Leuven experience.

My family had a great time during their stay in Leuven. The house was exactly as was on the ad, spacious, bright, cosy and very well located. You can go walking everywhere in the city center and if you are lucky with the Belgian weather they have a nice garden facing the park. Unfortunately we weren't that lucky. I would totally recommend it for a pleasant stay.

We use our home when we are in Belgium visiting family and on business. When we're not there we invite responsible individuals, couples, families with small children (even infants), or visiting professors or other professionals, to enjoy our home in central Leuven. Stays of 1 week to 6 weeks are ideal; some guests have stayed as long as 90 days. Please contact us directly for additional information about longer stays.
