The Space

We are the happy owners of a great Art-Deco house in an excellent area in Antwerp. We are actually located only a few hundred meters away from "De Single" and from "Flanders Expo", sheltered from noise and traffic by a nice park.

Our guests can enjoy quite some privacy as they have one floor all to themselves ! It is composed of two bedrooms: one larger and one smaller (both with air-conditioning, Wi-Fi and TV), which can easily accommodate up to 4 people - and a private bathroom (with bathtub and toilet).

Parking is not a problem would you come by car, as there is free parking close by - and the area is perfectly safe. There is also a very easy bus shuttle from Brussels airport, which stops only a few hundred meters away.

The neighbourhood is also quite attractive for great avenues and its restaurants - including a brasserie where you can dine until 22:00 every evening... Connections to the city centre are very easy by tram, bus or city bicycles (3 stations in the vicinity)

For the sporty-type people, there are three gyms and an olympic swimming pool at walking distance.

We can, of course, recommend you places to go, depending on what you like or wish to do... We also provide maps of the city and pretty good tips too.

Guest Access

Guests get access to a whole floor and a choice of 2 bedrooms. We do not wish to mix/match people. We rent one floor even for 1 or 2 guests.
Our guests have access to the whole house, literally, with the exception of 1 floor - that of my wife and me !

Interaction with Guests

We play it by the ear... We know the city quite well (cultural activities, bars, restaurants and hidden treasures), so we can provide stories, advice and recommendations. We can also take care of restaurant reservations... If our guests prefer that we do so.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is - to us - perfectly ideal. It is not too busy, and yet it is close to the city center (20 minutes by foot or so). We live across a nice little park too, which provides for a relaxing, serene experience.

Getting around

Public transport is all around our house: tram, bus, train, shuttle to Brussels Airport... and the local city-bikes.

  • Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable à Anvers, ville dynamique et commerçante. Vincent et son épouse nous ont accueillies très gentiment dans leur magnifique maison, meublée avec goût. Elle n'est pas tout à fait dans le centre mais est très bien desservie par les transports en commun (tramway et station de location de vélo à proximité). Le petit déjeuner était parfait. Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de notre séjour et projetons d'y revenir un jour. Anvers en vélo, c'est à faire absolument !

  • We've had a very pleasant stay at Vincent's beautiful house. His hospitality is great, as well as the tips you will get of Antwerp. Follow his advice and you will find nice places to (email hidden) and see the nice parts of Antwerp!! Really recommend!

  • This is the second time to be hosted by Vincent&Marianna, but it's just as good as the first.
    Lucky we have time for Vincent's home made breakfast. The omlet is unforgetable!
    I tried the other room this time, it's deicate and cosy, the bed was so comfortable made me don't want to get up at all.
    I have to say this is the dream place in Antwerp.

  • Now this is not AirBNB as you usually have it / this is being invited at a friends home. Vincent is the best host you can imagine. It is not "here is the key" / this is being welcomed. The House makes you speechless and makes you want to go home to redecorate urgently. Very tasteful. Very lovely. We had a wonderful time. And you have breakfast here as well / as if I was an important guest. If you have a Change / book immediately. Otherwise you miss out.

  • Dass unser erster Aufenthalt in Antwerpen so toll war, haben wir v.a. den außerordentlich guten Empfehlungen von Vincent zu verdanken. Egal ob Kultur, Gastro oder shopping....seine Tipps waren hervorragend! Vielen Dank noch mal dafür. Nun aber zur Unterkunft: Ein unbeschreiblich schönes Art Deco Haus, diese Erfahrung hat unseren Antwerpen Trip gekrönt! Ein super bequemes Bett, ein elegantes Badezimmer und ein leckeres französisches Frühstück in einer Atmosphäre vergangener Zeiten. Ein wirkliches Kleinod und 100 % empfehlenswert! Wir kommen wieder!!!!

  • Exactly as described and a truly beautiful house. Vincent welcomed us with a glass of wine and a virtual tour of Antwerp on a map, which was very useful for our exploring. He was so helpful with his recommendations. The room was lovely, breakfast was really delicious, the bathroom was very nice, we wanted for nothing and felt like we could have asked for anything. Thanks!

  • What a wonderful house and breakfasts! The bedroom was great; clean and very spacious with a massive comfy bed. The bathroom was really luxurious with marble walls. The whole floor was just for us. The room was ready for our morning arrival and there was no pressure to check out by certain time. My boyfriend and I absolutely enjoyed our stay in this amazing house with beautiful views. Vincent was very attentive and helpful host, which really made our stay in Antwerp even more enjoyable. Both Marianna and Vincent were very friendly and helpful to advise us of the local attractions.

    We definitely recommend this house, as no hotel could offer such a caring, totally relaxed and personal experience.

    Thank you very much Vincent and Marianna!

  • Een mooi en ruim huis en vooral een perfecte gastheer. Vincent maakt veel werk van het lekkere ontbijt en zijn liefde voor Antwerpen deelde hij graag met ons. Beiden weten erg veel van de locale restaurants en hun tips zijn de moeite waard.

  • Wij hebben een heerlijk verblijf gehad in het prachtige huis van Vincent Gallego en zijn vrouw. We werden hartelijk ontvangen en goed geholpen. Veel rust, 's nachts volkomen stil.
