About this listing
Come and stay in my charming 1930 house in the south of Antwerp, very close to the largest park of the city, in a residential and quiet area, close to the main roads to and around the city. My house is a cozy and sunny place with a nice garden.
Your room is on the top floor (2 sets of stairs). The bed is a comfortable large double (160x200).
We share the bathroom (shower and bath) and kitchen (I do not offer breakfast, but there is a supermarket down the street). There are 2 separate toilets in the house.
Other than your room and amenities, you can use the kitchen and the dining room to enjoy your cooking in a relaxed atmosphere.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the house, but am discreet and let you have all the space you need. I can point you to things to do, shops, cafés and restaurants if you so like. Dutch is my mother tongue, but I am fluent in French & English and I speak some German.
The house is situated near the largest park of Antwerp, including the beautiful Middelheim open air museum; this gives you a great way to combine culture and leisurely enjoy open air spaces.
Also close by are the 3 main hospitals of the city and the south campuses of Antwerp University, so if you are a visiting professor, student, doctor, nurse, family of a patient... this is the place for you.
Each year around August 15, the Middelheim Jazz Festival in Park Den Brandt (10 mins walk), offers a beautiful podium to great jazz musicians.
Free parking on the street, free wireless internet access.
Shops (food and non-food) are within walking distance (10 mins) and there is a large supermarket down the street.
Prefer going to town? Buses to city center and main Antwerp railway stations are very close by, or you can take one of my bikes (available against a deposit) to cycle to the city center (+/- 20 mins).
Other Things to Note
I have a nice and cosy garden where you can relax after a day of visiting Antwerp!
You are very welcome in my house, but in order to keep everyone happy, certain rules apply:
no noise after 11 pm
clean up after you in bathroom, toilets and kitchen
we respect each other's privacy and property
