My friend and I had a really nice stay at Kurt's and Filip's house. They are very friendly and helpful folks. Kurt was well prepared and gave us a great introduction with really good advices for Brugge. He also gave us a map and some guidebooks for our time. We appreciate that. The house is very close to the city center, you can walk or go by the bikes, which Kurt provides for his guests.
We had a really nice time in Brugge and Kurt and Filip made it even better.
Our stay at Bamboo room was perfect. Kurt and Filip made us feel like at our home. I am very glad to say that the room, house, shower and everything else was even better than described. Our hosts were very welcoming and they done everything to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. They gave as all info about the city and the best places to eat and drink.
Everything was very clean and fresh. Neighborhood was very quiet and we had the most perfect stay at Bruges.
When we go to Bruges next time, we will sure want to stay at the Bamboo room again.
He picked me up at the station and took my friend to her hostel. When he showed me the room he offered me a beer. The room was clean, attractive, and orderly. It was equipped with a frig and dishes. He had brochures about the town for me to peruse. He gave me a map and pointed out places I might be interested in. He was hElpful with any questions I had. also I had use of a bike which was very helpful.
Last minute (een dag voor aankomst) wilde wij nog naar Brugge. Kurt heeft ervoor gezorgd dag dit mogelijk werd. En hoe! We konden met de auto gratis voor de deur parkeren. Hij legde meteen alle ins en outs uit van Brugge en liet ons de kamer zien: heerlijk! O.a. Schone handdoeken, koffie/thee en een gevuld koelkastje.
Door zijn kennis over Brugge hebben we leuke restaurantjes en plekjes ontdekt die we anders niet hadden ontdekt. Kortom, een top verblijf, zeker een aanrader!
Kurt and Filip's apartment was undoubtedly one of the high points of our trip!
To begin with, Kurt generously picked us up at the Bruges train station and gave a short briefing on the city during the ride to his house (post arrival he even made arrangements for the luggage to be delivered to the room!). Once inside the house, we were awed by the general decor and upkeep, not to forget the contemporary thematic charm of the place. The room and the house were perhaps even more pretty than they appear in the photographs. The next outstanding thing about the experience was the presence of a carefully curated compendium of activities to do once in Bruges, ranging from information on festivals to recommendations on restaurants and places to visit. Additionally, they also provided 2 bicycles to help us discover the city in its entirety. During our departure, Filip ever so generously took out 30 minutes from his schedule on a working day and dropped us off back at the train station - a wonderful gesture!
All in all I would thoroughly recommend a stay at Kurt and Filip's apartment and would myself love to go back sometime soon!
Kurt was an amazing host. The bamboo room was clean, bright, and comfortable. Kurt was very considerate in meeting all our needs. He was well organized and thoughtful in providing travel guide books, maps, and a book about house policies and accommodations. We had a great time in Bruges!
Bruges is just beautiful. You should visit, and definitely choose to stay here.
The bamboo room is exactly as pictured. There is surprisingly comfortable fold out bed, a TV with an entertaining musical collection of dvd's, ample clothes space, a kettle, and a small fridge (filled with very reasonably priced beer and soft drinks). Tea, coffee and mini milks were also provided and refreshed daily.
What isn't pictured are the extra thoughtful small touches. Small Belgian chocolates (so delicious), bottled water refreshed daily, clean soft towels, and a tray for dirty dishes Kurt collected and delivered back to us clean.
Kurt and Filip have a lovely modern decor, with a clean modern shared bathroom, and a divine garden with wooden lounges and a friendly cat.
Kurt kindly worked his schedule to pick us up and drop us off at the station. He provided us with a detailed map, including suggestions of reasonably priced and favorite shops, wonderful local sites, and current events/festivals information. The free loan of their well-conditioned spare pair of bikes was invaluable. We rode them everywhere, doing the lovely 8km scenic loop of central Brugges each day. Kurt was available and quick to respond anytime we wanted a chat, whilst also being very respectful of any privacy.
As first time airbnb'ers, we can already see this will be a difficult experience to beat! We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

About the Host, Kurt
I'm 36 years old, married but there are no kids running around. I work as a paramedic in a hospital in Bruges and as massage therapist at home. Since childhood, I dreamt of living in Bruges and now I'm very happy to share my love for this beautiful city with my visitors. I love to travel myself and learned from my travel experiences, to make this room into a second home for guests.
