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 where you can experience what a real life in Antwerp stands for. 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)
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.
Sandro has been REALLY nice, we didn't meet but he has been very understanding and kind to us. We found the right solutions at the right time, so everything worked out pretty well.
The house is very nice too, i liked it's elegant simplicity, the street is calm, the bedroom has no sound from the city and has a view on bamboo trees, great bed ! we slept so well, and enjoyed the little kitchen for our own food/breakfasts.
Close to the train station, like 10-15mn walking so it was quite easy to get there. We loved our stay there, oh and i didn't mention the two amazing cats...
The flat is really nice and I warmly recommend the hosts ! Lot of taste and nice attentions, good tips...
We had a nice week end at Sandro's place. The room is very welcoming and lovely and Sandro was very friendly! We recommend this place!
At once we feel at home! Sandro is so friendly and a really good gastgeber! I I love the bathroom, great and good designed.
Thanks for a nice stay at antwerpen!1
Sandro is a great host. The rooms are very spacious and nicely decorated. It felt like being in a hotel or 'real' b&b, but with the benefits of staying in a persons home. The croissants in the morning were a big plus.
We enjoyed the stay at this beautiful home! We loved the style of the house and it was so comfortable.
Sandro is a very nice and caring host who gave us many useful information about places to visit, good restaurants!
About the Host, Sandro
Hi there, we are Jos and Sandro, and we've been living in this house already 4 years. We share the house with a whippet called Frans and a Russian Blue called Rosa, they are two super social and lovely pets. Even though they do not have access to the room and bathroom we are renting, we do share the same staircase, so if you are alergic to pets, maybe we are not the right choice for you.
Jos is psychotherapist and I work part time in a bar, as well as a freelance fashion designer.
Even though we live in a city our dream is to move once to a house on a lake surounded by woods and animals. Lake could also be a sea, and woods could also be fields, not completely decided yet.
We like to travel but also like to host. We have often people staying at our place, and our house is never too small, as well,literaly :-)
We used to run a vegetarian home style restaurant on the ground floor, called Our House for a year, it was a great success and we met lots of nice people while doing it. As it grew too fast we needed to make a choice. You could still visit our blog and get the feeling of the atmosphere (website hidden)
Anyway, hopefuly this gives you an idea what kind of people we are, and we are looking forward hosting you, cheers!
