Lovely retro 1 bedroom flat with terras just on the other side of the river Schelde in Antwerp. The building is from 1977 and so there is retrotouch in the marble staircase and the way my cabinets are built (check out the picture of the bathroom and kitchen) It is about 65sq metres but it feels bigger because of the way it is built. The flat is on the backside of the building where there is no traffic.
The flat is spacious, has a small kitchen, a washingmachine, a bathroom with a bathtub and a separate toilet. The bed is the most comfortable one you'll ever have slept in.
You are about a 4 minute metroride away from the city centre, or you go through the awesome 1932 pedestrian tunnel that connects the left to the right bank.
The metrostop in front of my building hosts 4 trams passing so I've never had to wait longer than 4 minutes and it takes you straight into town (3stops to the Groenplaats) My stop is called "Van Cauwelaert"
It's a very nice, green and quiet area, opposite a recreation/walking area called t'Rot. When you walk out from the other side you will come to "Galgenweel" a 40 ha lake right next to the river (overlooking the city)
2 buildings to the west there is a supermarket and there is another one on the main square. There are a few restaurants but none to my liking so far. I much prefer going to the centre.
One of the reasons I chose this place is the space. There is very little of that in Antwerp and this is paradox. So close to town (actually technically speaking it IS the centre) and yet much more residential and green. Parkingspace galore and friendly neighbours due to great living conditions.

Our stay at Catherine's apartment was awesome!
Cosy apartment with everything we needed and a really good location. If you visit Antwerp, go there!!! :)
Catherine was not there in person but had everything well arranged regarding keys etc and she called to make sure we would find the apartment. Her apartment is very cosy and comfortable, in a quiet area yet very close to the city center, it was the perfect spot for us. Really enjoyed a sunny Sunday morning on the balcony!
Catherine was a great host! She was very easy to communicate with, gave helpful tips, and responded quickly to all inquiries. The apartment was in a good location (right by a tram stop) and was clean and had a comfortable bed. We highly recommend staying here!
Catherine a été une hôte très flexible, malgé ses examens, elle s'est rendue disponible et nous a gentiment accueillie. Son appartement est fonctionnel et bien chauffé. Elle dispose d'une petite terrasse fleurie, appréciable par temps froid et été. Son logement est très proche de la station de tramway et en deux temps trois mouvements on arrive au centre (website hidden)ès de chez elle, il y a un Aldi (ce qui peut dépanner pour faire une petite course d'appoint).
Je recommande ce logement.
Een zeer aangenaam klein appartement, voorzien van alle gemakken (behalve tv, maar wie kijkt daar nu nog naar). En inderdaad met een prima bed.
Dank aan de zeer attente en zorgzame gastvrouw.
Fast communication, Catherina is very flexibel and willing to help.
With the tram you are a few minutes away from the centre. Great place!
I didn't meet Catherine but a friend with the keys.
The apt is not in centre of Antwerp but has a metro stop just in front of. This is amazing because you can reach the center in 3/4 stops and in 5/6 minutes.
Close to the apt there is a Aldi supermarket. It's very easy buy anything you need!
The kitchen and the bathroom have everything you can need.
Comfortable apartment in quiet residential area (Windows and balcony looking to the opposite side of the street). Very easy access to the city centre. A large pond and the park nearby well suited for evening walks or jogging in the fresh air.
Catherine is very sensitive to issues of purity, so I advise you well to plan your journey, to have time for thorough cleaning traces of your stay.
Catherine is an exceptional host and her flat is absolutely lovely! I met her at the flat and she showed me everything I needed to know and then actually headed into town with me. She showed me around and gave me plenty of recommendations over coffee and pastries! She is very friendly and knowledgeable.
The flat is located right by the tram which takes you to the city center in mere minutes, and also near the pedestrian tunnel, which is quite a nice thing to do on a sunny day. The flat was plenty of space for me and would be for 2 or perhaps even 3 people. I highly recommend the flat and Catherine! Cheers!
