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.

We hope to contact responsable people, who're interested in visiting the town, not for clubbing and partying... (we don't mind if it is just for an evening but we don't want any drunk people coming in in the middle of the night, we have two little children). We'd like you to close al the lights and check the stove when you go out or when you go to sleep. And We would also appreciate it if you turn of the television, music installation and coffee machine with the on/off button at night in stead of leaving it in stand by modus. And please pull out the plug of the kettle. I'm terrified of fire :-). There's a lot of beauty products in the bathroom, you can use the ones witch are already opened but please don't take them at home. We have curious cats, so when you don't want them to come and visit you, we advise you to close the doors. Also it's better to keep the door of the bedroom closed, to ensure they don't sleep on your bed or don't lock them up when you're out. Have a nice stay.
We had a really lovely stay in Antwerp! As a family of 3 it was great to stay in accommodation which provided us with so much more room than a hotel room. Laura and Tomas were very friendly hosts, very helpful and gave us lots of tips for visiting Antwerp. We very much enjoyed the very central location of their home. We have never used Airbnb before although our very positive Antwerp experience would definitely make us consider this as an accommodation option another time. Thank you Laura and Tomas - you are great hosts! Maisie can't wait to come back!
We had a fantastic stay with Laura & Thomas. They are super friendly hosts and the apartment was the perfect place to relax and catch up with my university friend. We were ideally located for exploring the sites of Antwerp on foot, and really appreciated the restaurant recommendations! Thanks for having us!
Laura and Thomas were fantastic hosts! The apartment is private and perfectly situated for exploring the city. Really a great way to experience Antwerp.
We had an amazing trip to Antwerp. Not only was the city beautiful by Laura and Thomas were great hosts, really welcoming and made everything super easy - communication, key exchange, directions, maps,recommendations. The apartment itself was lovely, exactly as the photos, clean, tidy and very comfortable. The apartment is in a very central location, great for exploring the city- mainly by foot- yet really quiet at night. Thank you for a great stay.
Thomas and Laura have a beautiful house in a quiet street right in the center of Antwerp. The apartment is located on the top floor and has everything you need and more (including great art books and loads of beauty products in the bathroom). We've had a great stay and we would definitely recommend this place!
We had an absolutely fantastic stay with Thomas, Laura, their two wonderful kids, Lou the dog and Matisse (the rather fat) cat. Both Thomas and Laura were incredibly friendly and welcoming hosts, and made us feel completely at ease while we were under their roof.
The room was spacious, well kept and very comfortable. The house itself is perfectly located for exploring Antwerp. We would happily stay there again when visiting the city in the future.
Wederom een heerlijk verblijf gehad in dit fijne appartement. De locatie en voorzieningen zijn zeer goed en we hebben ons zeer welkom gevoeld.
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 time. Life 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.
