Interaction with Guests
We don't interact with the guests and we won't be present during the stay.
We will always be reachable.
We love the neighbourhood for the green, the water, the quietness in the middle of the town.
And we also love the neighbourhood for the proximity of the Bijloke Site. The Bijloke is the epicentre of culture in all its forms. It is home to famous music, dance and theatre ensembles - See more at: (website hidden)
There is very convenient transport all around.
Parking is included.
Train station is very nearby.
We don't allow guests to smoke.
Pets are not allowed.
The apartment is on two floors, it is spacious and comfortable and just as described. The Wi-fi was very good. The stairs in the apartment are a little bit unusual in that there is a hanging rope to hold on to when using them. We didn't have any problem with this arrangement but I can see that this could be difficult for some people. The apartment is in a very convenient position only a short walk from the center of town. Andre had left lots of information on what to see and do in Ghent and some nice Belgian beer and cheese in the fridge! We would definitely stay there again.
We did not meet our host but he made it very easy to find and enter the apartment. The apartment was as described, a very nice place to stay and there were some beers and breakfast foods in the refrigerator. It was very quiet and was very convenient to walk into the city center. The only difficulty was parking - unless you have a very small car there is no way to park in the garage - so you have to find parking outside on the streets.
This is a really lovely, light and spacious apartment, with plenty of character. Andre made us feel welcome by giving us clear and easy instructions and providing all the things we needed for a comfortable stay. The apartment and is very well equipped and we were grateful for the tea, coffee and unexpected extras in the kitchen. The location is ideal, as it's a pleasant walk along the canals into the city centre and there's a supermarket nearby. Thank you Andre.
The apartment is just perfect, as listed and as seen in the pictures. The neighbourhood is perfect as well, very close to the ancient city, 10 minute's walk, yet a very calm and pleasant at day and night.
The host made us feel well, helped us when we needed some extra days and let us stay more than we planned first.
We had a great vacation living in that apartment.
A splendid apartment in an excellent location close to all the historical sights. Though Andre could not meet us in person, he provided clear instructions about access and kept in touch. Lots of lovely touches and very well equipped, especially the kitchen. We'd love to stay again when next in Ghent.
Andre & Anne Marie have been lovely hosts. I can highly recommend their apartment to anyone. The location is great. All amenities are provided. It's nice and spacious. They made us feel very welcome.
Andre's apartment is delightful and very comfortable and spacious. The location is perfect, being 10 mins walk from the city centre, but far enough out to be peaceful and relaxing after time spent bustling around Ghent. The apartment has all the amenities one hopes for: constant & plentiful hot water, wi-fi, cable TV, a well-stocked kitchen, washing machine, a desk from which to work (if like me, you are never really off duty), and a printer. Included in the price are a fortnightly cleaner and fresh supply of bed linen/towels. Andre and Anne Marie are charming, helpful and couldn't do enough for us. Next time we are to be visiting Ghent we will certainly investigate the availability of their apartment.
