About this listing

The space

Close to the city centre and central station in the artistic and multicultural neighbourhood Borgerhout a beautiful mansion (herenhuis) from 1905. Live in the grandeur of passed times and feel at home. Sleep in the comfortable double beds of the two large rooms. The two rooms share one big bathroom where a refreshing rainshower starts your day.

When you arrive I always take time to show you the house and give you a lot of suggestions what to do in Antwerp, where to drink or dine and where to go out.
In the morning your extensive breakfast is served in the cozy kitchen or outside in the garden. The house has free Wifi, cable TV and radio.
On Wednesdays and Thursdays I also cook for guests and friends. The house restaurant is the place to meet other people and enjoy my Italian cooking. A three course dinner is €17,50. Drinks come extra.

From the house you can easily walk to some typical Belgian cafe's and restaurants in the neighbourhood. Or you can take the tram that brings you to the very centre in 15 minutes. Visit the city of the famous Flemish painters Rubens, Van Dijck and Breughel. Enjoy your Belgian beer on one of the many terraces, shop till you drop in the fashion capital of Belgium and buy that piece you always looked for in that beautiful second hand shop.

And when you have time, take a bike and discover the beautiful parks of Antwerp and its world harbour along the river Schelde.

See you,

Best Airbnb experience yet! The house is magnificent, I love the simplicity and design. Location is great, close to newly open undergrad tram. Cathy is lovely, warm and helpful person - she helped us with planning and breakfast was delicious. Next time I'm in Antwerp I'm coming back!!

Beautiful old building 10 minute tram ride outside of the city centre. We got the room on the top floor which was cosy and had its own bathroom. Cathy was very helpful with getting us on our way into the city.

It was not simple place to sleep, it was real homelike Flemish house with very charismatic hostess! I organized this trip for my husband's birthday and it was a real surprise for him , Cathy made our holiday! The atmosphere was great, her family is very warm and friendly! They do it with love. Thanks all of them! It is unforgettably! I highly reccomend this place!

Cathy and her family were great hosts and this is a lovely house to stay at in Antwerp! The bedroom and bathroom are spacious and private, and Cathy provides a lovely breakfast and environment to relax. She was also very helpful with maps and tips on things to do and see in Antwerp. We had a great stay, would definitely recommend!

Cathy has been a great host, she welcomed us with tea and chocolates and recommended several highlights of the city. Her house is amazing, with high ceilings, old elements and stylishly decorated. The room was simple, but comfortable and clean. The breakfast, with Cathy and her daughter, was tasteful and nice, they are great company.

Cathy is a pleasant and welcoming host. She offered us a tasty and large breakfast, perfect to start the day with. The house has a lot of character, located only 10min by tram from the central train station and main shopping area. The room was large and the bed comfortable. We would definitly consider coming back.

Cathy' s art-filled home made our stay in Antwerp truly memorable. She is a gracious hostess and cook, with lots of great tips for enjoying her beautiful city. Her incredible sense of style is felt and seen in every inch of her 3-story home. The bed is large and comfortable, the bedroom stylish and spacious. Her home is a bit out of the city center, but a tram takes you to the city center in about 20 minutes.
