A colleague and I stayed in Pieter's great apartment for 6 nights. It's a big apartment, spacious, modern and comfortable and is just like the pictures. Also good value. It was very clean and with absolutely everything one could need! Pieter was accommodating, easy and clear to communicate with. It's not in the centre of town, and not much to do or see directly around, but you couldn't ask for better/quicker public transport. There's a tram and bus stop literally in front of the building, and it's really quick into the centre. It's also very close to DeSingel where we worked so it was perfect. I slept on the sofa, which was not the most comfortable night's sleep, but fine for a short stay. Thank you Pieter for such a pleasant, easy stay in your flat. We highly recommend this place!
Es ist ein großes tolles Appartment. Alles war sehr sauber und Pieter hat uns Rotwein & Süßes hingestellt. Pieter ist ein toller Gastgeber und sehr freundlich. Man fühlt sich sehr wohl und die Verkehrsanbindung in die City ist auch optimal, da sich die Haltestelle direkt vor der Tür befindet. Absolut empfehlenswert!
Pieter was a lovely host. Even though he couldn't be there in person, he made alternative arrangements that were easy to follow.
The apartment was immaculately neat and clean, and upon my arrival he left a lovely bottle of red wine with some biscuits.
Overall great apartment and great host. Would definitely recommend this apartment to my friends and family :)
Pieter's apartment was excellent. Very very spacious. My friends and myself thoroughly enjoyed it because the interior is so nice and there was plenty of room for us to have some much needed down time. The location is as good as it gets for transport. The tram leaves from outside the door and goes straight into the city centre. The only issue we had was trying to make the air conditioning work so we had to leave the windows open. Unfortunately I had trouble sleeping at times due to many mosquito bites. However I would still strongly recommend Pieters apartment nonetheless. Absolutely fantastic value for money, cheaper than many worse off hotel rooms at the time. Will definitely stay again.
We enjoyed very much staying in Pieter's stylish, but still cosy apartment. It is very convinient for parking and quick city center access with tram or bus (pretty much in front of the apartment). It's a more quiet area with a nice "green" view. Pieter was a great host, very helpful and friendly.
Excellent flat, excellent host. Always a pleasure staying at Pieter's place.
About the Host, Pieter
Hi! My name is Pieter (°1985). I currently live in Antwerp (Belgium) the city where I was born, raised and studied. I graduated as a master in economics from the University of Antwerp, from where I moved to work in Amsterdam. After one year of living abroad in the beautiful city with its canals, I decided to move back, even though I’m still working most of my time out of our Amsterdam office. As a result I’m traveling quite a bit, hence why my apartment is on airbnb.
However, I don’t mind the travel, I love it. And when I’m traveling I enjoy meeting new people and exploring new cities or countries. Over the past twelve months that’s exactly what I’ve been doing. I visited San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Tel Aviv, Vienna, Monaco, Cologne, Munich, Barcelona, Paris, London, La Bresse and Cannes. I love the vibe of big cities and its people more than lying on a beach in the sun.
When I’m not traveling or at work, going to the gym consumes quite a bit of my time as well as going out with friends for dinner or drinks. I also love to read, especially novels in a foreign language (French, English or Spanish), or to night in watching a movie with friends. Give me some good Belgian chocolates and I’m a happy man!
Please feel yourself welcome and at home in my apartment. Enjoy the good things in life. As I like to say: “work hard, play harder”. See you soon!!
Closeby the apartment, deSingel has three different areas: (1) a cultural spot to enjoy modern music and dance, (2) a coffee house where you can relax and (3) a good restaurant, nicely decorated.

Lovely restaurant in the beginning of the big park. In the summer it is wonderful to sit outside in the shades of the trees, while the winter they have a very cozy inside area. Try their salads!Gerard le Grellelaan Antwerpen 2020
Wonderful Italian restaurant. Not the most affordable, but the environment is superb and very cozy. The ideal spot for a business lunch or a romantic dinner. I love their fish dishes.Beukenlaan Antwerpen 2020
The Middelheim Museum offers a large collection of art figures who are well placed within the surroundings of a great park. Entrance is free and its the ideal place for a morning run.Middelheimlaan Antwerpen Vlaams Gewest 2020
If you like big, impressive paintings I can highly recommend the former house of the painter with the same first name as myself: Pieter Paul Rubens. Its a breathtaking museum.Wapper Antwerpen 2000
Superb golden ceiling, in the middle of Antwerps shopping street. Plenty of good shops and a nice champagne bar. Go there, even if its just to enjoy the architecture (it was rebuilt after a fire).Meir Antwerpen Vlaams Gewest 2000
Absolutely worth a visit! The paintings of the Belgian painter Pieter Paul Rubens are absolutely beautiful! Do you know the height of the cathedral? Its very easy: 1...2...3... 123 meters!Groenplaats Antwerp Flemish Region 2000
Who doesnt love a quite straw in the zoo, just to see the animals. It has been recently rebuild and its close to the central station (also a beautiful building!). Enjoy it!Koningin Astridplein Antwerpen 2018
If you like opera, this is absolutely worth a visit. Their line-up is great. Go to (website hidden) for the agenda and to order tickets. I love it so much that I have a full-season pass!Frankrijklei Antwerpen Vlaams Gewest 2000
The latest addition to our city. Opened in 2011, the museum gives an overview of the citys history and the artists that lived here. Get up the roof. I regularly go just to enjoy the view. Its free!Antwerp Flemish Region 2000
