The bedroom is very spatious and with a lot of light during the day, which is nice to sit on the terrace. Equiped with a large bed, cold and hot water, a couch, a desk and a small terrace.

The bathroom has a shower/bathtub and there is always warm water. There is also a washing machine available.
All equipment is available to cook. Stores to buy fresh food are next door. But I can also advice some nice places for breakfast/lunch/dinner.

Interaction with Guests
I like to offer you a comfortable and cosy home.
If you want to spent time together, it's possible if my agenda allows it, but all respect to your privacy.
I hope you may spend a memorable time in Antwerp.
Zuid is where Antwerp's cultural hearts beats and the neighborhood has three fabulous museums to underscore this point: MHKA (Museum of Contemporary Art), FoMu (The Museum of Photography) and KMSKA (The Royal Museum of Fine Arts). Along Waalsekaai and Vlaamsekaai, the former South Docks, you will encounter several galleries specializing in contemporary arts as well as exclusive design and interior stores. Volksstraat has more clothes stores and bakeries. In the evenings Zuid has a bustling nightlife scene thanks to the many restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood. it is also the perfect place for a delicious breakfast or an original brunch the morning after.
From my apartment it is very easy to discover The South by foot. If you enjoy walking, it is also possible to sightsee the city center and north of Antwerp by foot from my location (straight line walking south to north is about 40minutes walk).
I provide two bikes, which makes sightseeing; small or big Antwerp, less tedious. It allows you to go anywhere anytime and you have more opportunity to breathe in the atmosphere of the city.
From Central station you can take a bus (290, 500 or N29) or tram (24 or 4). From Central station to Brederodestraat, the tram stops at the stop called "Antwerpen bestorming". From there it is half a minute walk to the apartment.
There are many parkingoptions if you arrive by car. The most interesting place is the free parking spot at the Kaai, which is a few minutes walk from the apartment.
It is also possible to park in the street or nearby streets. It is free: the first 10 minutes, before 9 o'clock and after 19 o'clock and on Sundays.
Otherwise you pay 0,70€ the first hour and 1,10€ the consequent hours (for max 10hours).
Other Things to Note
Two bikes are available for rent (5€/bike, unlimited use)
During july/august it is possible to rent the whole apartment on certain dates.
There are two lovely but shy cats; Jazzy and Rozijn.
Smoking is allowed outside on the terrace.
From Aug 19 - 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
We hebben het naar ons zin gehad bij Ruth. We voelden ons welkom, kregen meteen veel informatie bij aankomst, sleuteloverdracht verliep soepel. We vonden het een mooi oud huis, stijlvol ingericht met oude meubelen en veel planten en bloemen. Wij werden er vrolijk van.
Notre séjour chez Ruth fut très agréable
La chambre est spacieuse avec des plantes bien éclairée
L accueil est chaleureux et bien organisé
L appartement est a 15 mn du centre
Ruth made us feel comfortable even before our short visit to Antwerp, providing me with the most detailed and organized info on how to get to her place. She was reacting promptly to messages and it wasn't a problem for us arriving without exact arrival time, as she had everything set up to get to and into the appartement.
It is situated in a nice area within walking distance to attractions. When we arrived, Ruth provided us with so many great tips for places and restaurants, even for breakfast, that we almost felt sorry for only staying one night.
The room and bed are comfy and clean and Ruth, as the best organized AirBnB-Host I've met, yet, made very sure we had a pleasant stay. Thank you!
Ruth, I wish we could stay a whole week! This was our favorite room of our trip! The bed is huge, the extra pillows are great, the light and plants were stunning! Even the towels were big and fluffy and smelled wonderful :-) And the fact that the tram stops almost right in front of your place is fantastic!
Thanks again xxx
