The Space

This cosy apartment in the middle of the old historical centre of Antwerp is situated on the entire second floor of the big old renovated house that we live in. The entrance on the ground floor is shared but the apartment is totally private: it has an open kitchen with a Nespresso machine (herbs, onions and kitchen equipment is all there) , a separate bedroom with a double bed, a bathroom (and if necessary an additional double sofa bed in the living room!). The apartment is childproof, you can make use of a baby bed, there's a baby chair and the steps are protected with a little fence. Even though we are in the middle of the bustling city, yet we live in a very quiet street! If you are traveling by car, you can make use of a public parking 18€/day around the corner It's a wonderful and artistic neighbourhood, a few steps from the cathedral, the city hall and near the famous new museum 'MAS', shops and the river 'De Schelde'. you can wander in small or big pedestrianized shopping streets around the corner or you can rent some city bikes at the other corner of the street ((website hidden)).
We're both artists ( a photographer and an illustrator/journalist) We have two kids (2 and 5) a very nice an friendly dog,and two fat cats, (they always stay downstairs). It's the ideal place to enjoy the city and make part of it in a very relaxing way. We hope to reach responsible and enthusiastic people! We're not pushy people, and will respect your privacy, but we are also ready to give you some advice and tips to enjoy your staying in Antwerp (as a photographer Thomas knows all the nicest little corners and 'places to be' in Antwerp). We love living here! And we hope you'll love it as much as we do.

  • The apartment was even better than expected, and the host was very friendly and helpful. It was comfortable, well located, and well equipped.
    The only difficultly was that the stairwell was very steep- tough to do with your hands full! This is quite common in this type of house, however.

  • Thomas and Laura are wonderful hosts. They have a lovely home, perfectly situated in the heart of Antwerp.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Thomas and Laura's home. They were wonderful and accommodating with our needs and gave us great advice on where to go and eat. Their place is lovely and centrally located, we could walk to everything. We felt very at home and if we are ever back in Antwerp we will definitely stay there again.

  • We stayed here for two nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The flat is in a very good location and thomas was a very accommodating host. All in all, an excellent base to explore antwerp!

  • Laura's and Thoma's house is the perfect starting point to discover Antwerp! The apartment has everything you need to make you feel at home - the three girls of us especially enjoyed the wide selection of beauty products (everything from hair masks to baby care). Unfortunately Laura and Thomas were travelling themselves so we didn't get to meet them. However, a neighbour welcomed us and everything was arranged perefectly. There were some mosquitos, one of the beds (email hidden), the couch doesn't, so bring some mosquito protection. The beds were really comfy! We had a great time and would highly recommend this apartment to everyone visiting Antwerp!

  • Laura and Thomas's appartment is amazing! If you get the chance to visit Antwerp make sure you gonna stay with this lovely family. The apartment looks just like on the airbnb pictures and offers enough space for a bunch of people. We enjoyed our stay very much. The location is in the actual center of the city. You can easily reach all the touristic sights and besides explore secret beautiful places all over Antwerp. It was very easy to find a nearby parking area which was very secure and within walking distance to the appartment. Communication before the trip was excellent. I highly recomment these wonderful hosts.

  • Deze plek was top! Leuke en gastvrije hosts op een hele centrale plek in de stad.
    Wij hebben het heerlijk gehad!

  • A lovely and friendly welcome awaited us at Thomas and Laura's home. Although in the heart of the historic centre, it is very quiet. The apartment, on all of the second floor is reached by a climb up some narrow and steep stairs, which will keep you fit!
    There aren't any grand views out of the windows - it is in a quiet little street - but the apartment has the look and feel of just staying over at a friend's place, with many of their own possessions: books, DVDs and even a great selection of toiletries in the bathroom to use!
    The separate bedroom has a comfortable double bed - although just me in it - my friend had the fold out sofa bed in the lounge area and reported that it to was very comfortable to sleep in.
    We tested the small kitchen area as we stayed in to eat most nights when the weather wasn't too good.
    Our very grateful thanks to Thomas who took us on a car tour of Antwerp and showed us many local sights that we would have otherwise have missed.
    Coming and going freely through the family front door, if Thomas and Laura weren't in, we would be greeted by their happy dog or the two cats Pablo and Matisse :)
    Lots of lovely friendly cafes are just around the corner - our favourites were Via Via and Jam on Wolstraat, but many more to choose from.
    A very enjoyable stay and I would certainly return again.

  • Locatie is echt geweldig, super dicht bij de Lieve Vrouwe kerk en minder dan 5 minuten lopen naar de Meier (shopping gebied). Eigenaren waren de eerste nacht niet thuis, maar alles was perfect klaar gelegd en geregeld. Netjes schoon en lekkere bedden. Een minpuntje, als je allergisch bent voor katten, is dit niet zo'n goede optie!

    We can totally recommend their place for a stay in Antwerp.

About
I'm Laura, a illustrator and a journalist for a woman magazine and my husband is Thomas, a photographer for several magazines. We have two kids, a girl Noa (5) and a boy, Amos (2). We love to live in the city, its nearby everything but our street is very quiet! For example in the morning we can choose between 5 bakery's, love it! And Thomas knows all the nice little squares and places as a photographer, and he loves giving good advise. We think a day should have a hundered hours becouse it's always too short and we work to much. We love to spend time with family and friends, but we also like to be at home for some quality (website hidden) is too short. We have a big house and a big mortage too:-) and we don't need all the space, so we want to try airbnb, than we can spend the extra money to travel.
