About this listing
your entire, private groundfloor apartment and garden
We welcome you on the ground floor of our house, situated in a quiet residential area of Antwerp. We live near “Elixir d’Anvers” (a delicious liquor), near the cultural center De Singel and near Antwerp Expo. You can walk to the city center, take a tram or rent a city bike.
You have lots of space, making our house suitable for longer stays. We prefer stays of minimum 3 nights. You're welcome for 1 or 2 nights too, but we only take these short term stays max. 2 weeks in advance.
Our flat provides one double and one single room. You get to the single room through the double room, so we only accommodate for a single party of maximum three people.
You have your own bathroom with shower and toilet, a full blown kitchen, a very cosy living-room (the library) and a small dining-room. And ... your own private garden.
We, the owners, live on the first floor and we will look after you or leave you in peace.

A friend and I stayed at Marlene’s from Saturday 11th – Wednesday 15th July 2015.
Marlene’s apartment was exactly as described in the Airbnb website. It was clean, comfortable and convenient.
We were greeted warmly. Being new to Antwerp it was great to be given a map of the town, details of where to catch the tram, where the local supermarkets were, and the local cafes etc.
The apartment was in a good area, close to public transport, cafes and shops.
I would definitely look to stay at Marlene’s again if I return to Antwerp, and would recommend it to friends looking for a base in Antwerp.
Marleen was very welcoming. Our stay was very enjoyable, we would stay at her place again if we came back to Antwerp.
Marleen was a very good host, very friendly and welcoming. I arranged the stay for two guest professors for an international project I worked on and everything went very smoothly and the guests slept comfortable and had a wonderful time at Marleen's home.
L'appartement correspond tout à fait à la description. Le quartier est à la fois calme et vivant avec les commerces pas loin.
Nous avons eu l'impression de passer une semaine chez grand'maman dans une atmosphère confortable et surannée.
Marleen et John sont absolument charmants.
We had a very enjoyable week at Marlene's appartment. It is really comfortable, and well situated in South Antwerp, which has excellent tram links into town. Marleen lives upstairs so if you have any questions, you can just ask. I would definitely recommend.
Lovely place - very homely, clean and comfortable. The house is situated on a quiet and nice street! Bus and tram stops about a 10 minute walk away, also a supermarket and cafes near!
One thing to be aware of in the winter: the heat shuts off automatically at night and during work hours,
Marleen was friendly and welcoming!
Pleasant stay and would definitely return!
Thank you :)
About the Host, Marleen
I'm a reader, gardener and I like meeting people. I also like cooking, going to restaurants, concerts, theatre and dance-performances. I try to be a real ambassador for my city and region.
Being a member of the Antwerp B&B-Association, I rent my groundfloor apartment on a professional basis. If you need an invoice for your stay, that's no problem.
I dislike arrogant people.
