About this listing
The house is beginning 20th century town house, with lots of charm but also some small defects that are inevitable in a 100 and something year old house. The floors are wooden that can crack sometimes and doors can squeak :-)
A lovely studio appartment in the period property with its own private bathroom, 1-3 persons, free wifi, kitchenette.
We are easily reached from the highway, and are two tram stops away from the central station. Our home is situated in a lively area, a healthy mix of young families, artists, older natives and different cultures. You can take a tram to a city center,tram stop is 100m away from our street, you can take a city bike, or even walk on a sunny day.We do not provide breakfast but will be glad to hang a goody bag on your door with fresh croissants if asked in advance.
There is a possibility to rent the room for a longer period ( a week or even a couple of months)
As the space basically works as a separate unit, you will have everything you need within the studio. There is a washer in the basement that you can use in case you are renting the space for a longer period.
Interaction with Guests
As I work from home most of the times I will be availbale to solve nay problem or give you tips about antwerp.
The neighborhood went kind of through a transformation in last ten years. there are lots of young families and artists who moved here as the rents are still quite affordable. There are couple of new bars and cafes , galleries,and every now and then, events that take place organised by the residents ( flea markets, art walks, open concerts). Our area is not a posh south, expensive eilantje or touristic center of Antwerp, it is more like a neighborhood where you know your neighbours names and do things together.
Tram stop is literally 3 minutes away, tram 24 takes you to trendy south in about 15 minutes, tram 10 stops basically 100 meters from the cathedral and will take you there in 10 minutes, you are 10 minutes walk from the central station, and maybe 15 minutes from the lovely Zurenborg where there are many caffes and restaurants.
Other Things to Note
we have two cats and a dog, all of them quiet, dog barked 7 times in his life and he is 8 years old ;-) i maybe exagurate on this one but just to give you the picture that he is really quiet :-) cats sometimes lay on the stairs but they are not welcome in the rooms we rent, even when there is nobody staying. Saying this if you have an allergy maybe we are not the right place for you.
We do not have any special rules, you will get your own key , and are free to come and leave as you wish. If you are staying for a longer period of time you can use the washing machine that is located in the basement.
