Loved the apartment and the view was exceptional. Communication and timeliness was absolutely great with Els. This apartment has all the amenities required for a pleasant stay and is very secure with swipe access for the building. Lots of shops nearby and only a 10 - 15 minute walk from the main train station. Located in a multicultural neighbourhood where people of all faiths and walks of life coincide with each other.

I studied languages and cultural anthropology and am currently teaching Dutch to teenage migrant children in Antwerp. I also play the violoncello.
We travel a lot and spent some years abroad (NZ, USA) before returning to Antwerp. We know what we missed in our temporary lodgings, that's why we try to make our apartment a home away from home for you.
