Description

The space

A private elevator will bring you straight into this apartment, and you will have your own key to your space.

You will be blown away with the private space that includes a lush bathroom with a huge round whirlpool jacuzzi in the castle's mosaic tiled tower room, a separate multifunctional shower with rain shower and jet massage showers, and a large windowed Finish sauna with ample space to lay down. There's also a fully automated shiatsu seat which will give you a great body massage. This will be private for your own use during the stay.

LED lights will set the mood right for a romantic evening and modern appliances such as sensor light switches and dimmed lights, as well as coded entry passes are all part of this luxurious get-away.

this is part of the same location you can rent as a whole apartment (see pictures on the other listing)
by opting for the room, you will not have access to the terrace, living room nor kitchen.

New:
- a large fridge is installed in your room for your use
- a bluetooth speaker / ceiling lamp can play your music wirelessly (from phone or other device)

Guest access

bedroom, bathroom, wellness and toilet are completely seperated from the rest of the apartment and accesible through one door.
it will be your own exclusive private oasis.

Interaction with guests

The space you are using is privately yours during the whole stay. I travel a lot, if I am home I will make sure to double check on your room while you visit the city. Upon your arrival you will get a full tour with instructions how to use everything and you will get a written manual should you forget anything. Furthermore you will be shown the map of Antwerp and your location and pending your interests you will get directions and tips where to go or what to do.
During your stay i will always be reachable for aditional assistance if needed.

The neighborhood

I'm sure you will find it so relaxing and cozy you probably may want to cocoon the entire stay.
But then again there is so many to see in Antwerp. So much to choose from: museum, shopping, restaurants, beach, waterfront, biking trails, diamonds, chocolates, fashion, the list never ends.
Summer or winter, Antwerp has many things to offer year-round.

The place is very close to the heart of Antwerp city and the harbor, and just few steps from the Diamond district and worlds voted nr 1 most beautiful railway station.

Getting around

from my place it's easy to get around, most people will love to walk to the city (about 15-20minutes) or others will take the bus or tram pending where they want to go.
or you can rent a city bike (velo. be) at a terminal just around the corner for about 3.80€/day

To get to my place is also easy: if you come by train I suggest you step off just before the central station stop, it's called Antwerpen Berchem. This stop is only a 15minutes walk from my place and is easy to find.

Other things to note

a basic set of towel and sarong per person is provided free of charge.
if you want to indulge yourself or add an extra to your surprise or your romantic weekend you can opt for the deluxe set which includes a double set of towels, a sarong and a bathrobe per person as well as a chilled bottle of bubbles with glasses! (or white/red wine as you wish).
we will also provide scented water in the sauna for you to indulge an aromatic experience when pouring water on the hot stones during your sauna session.
free garage throughout your stay is also included, but needs to be reserved ahead.
(check out the picture on this page)
Make sure to reserve this before you arrive (additional 25€/pay on arrival).

bring your favourite bath and showergels and if you want to indulge in the jacuzi bring bathoil or bathsalts. Also for the sauna, feel free to bring your scents for water/steam.

please note if you wish to bring babies or pets you need to request this ahead before booking.

kindly send me some info about you and your plans for the stay when you inquire for a booking. please make sure to have your airbnb verification completed, it will speed up the reservation process. looking forward to host you !

Well organized, clean, everything is working perfectly. The place to be to enjoy private spa and Antwerp (close to public transport). Francis took care of everything eventhough he was not there, he made sure that we got the keys and explanation about everything! One tip: to have a (wine) bottle opener in the apartment:-).

We really enjoyed having the sauna & jacuzzi in the room. Also the light with the builtin bluetooth speaker is nice for playing music. Great friendly welcome, nice tips for dinner and breakfast/lunch. We also really enjoyed the public bike service as a way of getting around, which is just around the corner.

We had an amazing stay in Antwerp. The jacuzzi in the tower was our favorite. Everything is like the pictures and descriptions. We took the bicycles to get around Antwerp like Yash (Francis was away, so Yash did the check-in) recommended. This was a really good tip. I guess it's the best way to get around.

A perfect place for a complete relaxation. We enjoyed the sauna and Jacuzzi. We didn't get the opportunity to meet Francis, but we had a friendly welcome from Linda. Everything was as stated in the description. We will be back.

Francis was right on time, open and gracious upon our arrival. There are so many relaxation amenities we weren't able to use them all. The very large tub takes awhile to fill, however you will be so glad you did. The air jet placements are perfect. The Shiatsu chair - incredible. Everything was as described. On our initial arrival to the train station we walked from the Amsterdam-Berchem station and with backpacks it seemed far. I would suggest taking the number 15 tram to De Merode and then it is a quick few blocks. Francis had a great suggestion for us, as we arrived early in town before check in time, he said there are lockers. Both of our backpacks, iPads and other heavy items fit in one locker for 4.5 euro. Great tip. Thanks Francis.
