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.
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 if 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.
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.
Public transport is all around our house: tram, bus, train, shuttle to Brussels Airport... and the local city-bikes.
No specific house rules - common sense rather !
Vincent and his wife are the best! Their house is speechless. Whatever you see on the ad, it's twice nicer and way more beautiful live. We were very lucky to be settled there. No comments about our hosts. Always available and super friendly, always making sure our stay was as perfect as it can be. And it really was! They provided maps, guides and even installed Whatsapp to be sure we were safe and everything. The place's location is incredible. Very close to the airport shuttle and a 20/30 minute walk (a very pleasant one) to downtown. If you're in doubt about the place to rent in Antwerp, I think you just found THE place! Cheers!
Een mooi ruim opgezet huis en slaapkamers met heerlijke bedden. Gastheer en gastvrouw deden er alles aan om het ons naar de zin te maken. Van uitleg over stad en faciliteiten tot heerlijk ontbijt en dito uitstap naar mooie wijk. Het is een prima plek als uitvalsbasis om de stad te verkennen. We hebben genoten van jullie stad, jullie ontvangst en jullie appartement. Dank jullie wel!
Vincent zorgt voor een zeer welkom ontvangst en geeft graag de info die je nodig hebt tijdens je verblijf in Antwerpen. Van stadsplattegrond, tips over de beste restaurants tot fietsverhuur en werking openbaar vervoer...alles legt hij rustig uit. Verder gunt hij je alle privacy in zijn eigen huis. Een mooie, rustige, schone en prettige ambiance en prettige gastheer!
Our host Vincent was incredible - he went well beyond what you'd normally expect. He gave us lots of useful insider's tips to Antwerp, pinpointed places on the map he gave us and even took us to a stunning Art Nouveau area called Zurenborg to pick up croissants for Sunday breakfast. The house was gorgeous and peaceful, we had our own floor at the top of the house and slept very well in the large comfortable bed. We're already talking about the next time we'd like to visit!
Wij hadden een erg leuk verblijf bij vincent. Het is een mooi huis om in te vertoeven. Een ruime en warme kamer met een groot bed. Zalig bad. Veel privacy en, wat voor ons erg belangrijk uwas, rust en stilte. Lekker ontbijt met heerlijk brood. Vincent was erg vriendelijk en gaf met zichtbaar plezier informatie over 'zijn' stad. Hij was ook flexibel wat betreft aankomst en vertrek. Wij maakten gebruik van de stadsfietsen (om de hoek)om naar het centrum te gaan. Alle goeds onder 1dak.
We could not have for a more pleasant stay in Antwerp. Vincent and his wife were absolutely wonderful and their apartment is beautiful and decorated with great taste. We were four people in two bedrooms and there was definitely enough of space for all of us. The area where the apartment is located is nice and quiet. Vincent was very helpful and provided us with numerous great tips. We recommend the place with great confidence! A great experience in total.
A beautiful house; comfortable, spacious bedrooms; a delicious breakfast; a charming host with lot of suggestions of things to see and do in Antwerp, ...what more could you ask for?
