Son was truly a lovely host! She was super kind and sweet and it was really easy to find her home. Just 10 minutes walk from Antwerp central station to a quiet neighbourhood is where she is located. The house was adorable, the rooms indeed cosy and spacious. I really liked staying in the downstairs bedroom which came equipped with its own shower and door to outside terrace. Son also made us breakfast every morning which came at a great surprise to my friends and I, because we truly thought that it would simply be some jam on toast, but Nope! We had every morning as scheduled a full blown breakfast, with pancakes, and eggs and salami, and cheese and coffee and tea and juice and you name it. She honestly did not have to go through all the trouble, but she did and that's just another one of the things that makes her a great host. :) Breakfast time was also a great opportunity to meet and get to know any other guests who were staying at the house at the same time. We always had discussions about our origins, or the different cultures that we came from as she was always interested in getting to know her guests on a more personal level. I hope that if I ever need a place in Antwerp to stay again in the future that Son will be available in my time of need because it was an extremely wonderful experience. :)
Finding Son's place is not a problem at all, the room I had was very cosy. In the morning Son cooked a great breakfast, with to much pancakes ;-)
It was a really nice place!
Son is warm, kind, and helpful. The house is nice and clean, the room is cozy. She makes great effort to make sure that her gusts feel comfortable during the stay. She helps me plan my time in the city as well as the next stop. The kitchen is fully equipped with all cooking supplies. It is very easy to get to her house from the central train station and convenient to get to all attractions. I would love to come back and stay in Son's house again.
Son is very kind and helpful, a superb host! The rooms have recently been renovated with a very elegant interior. Son serves breakfast every morning at your convenience: toast, cheese and jams, crêpes, orange juice, coffee... You're free to come and go as you please. The location is perfect: it's ten minutes to the train station and 15-20 mins to the city center. Plenty of small falafel and gyros places around, a shopping street just a block away, guarded, affordable parking nearby. Definitely recommendable!
Myself & 4 friends stayed at Son's in Antwerp when we came to watch the World Hockey League Semi's & Finals. It was a great location, only a 10 min walk from the central station & bus station. The rooms were just as described and the beds were extremely comfy. There is also a roof terrace off the double room at the back. We were there when it was extremely hot (heat wave across Europe) so had the windows open to create a breeze. The two rooms that face onto the street were quite noisy due to a couple of bars and the good weather meaning that everyone was drinking on the street rather than inside. The breakfast in the morning was fantastic, fresh coffee, pancakes and boiled eggs! It was very good value and if I was in Antwerp again I'd definitely stay here.
Wat een mooi huis, en een hartelijke warme welkom! We hebben een leuke tijd in Anwerpen gehad en gezellig in het huis van Son gelogeerd. Alles was prima, we zijn heel tevreden. Dank u!
What a beautiful house, and a warm welcome! We had a great time in Antwerp and a cosy stay at Son's house. Everything was perfect. The location is very good. Son was kind to let us rent her beautiful house even though she wasn't in Antwerp when we were there. So we were warmly welcomed by Timur, even though he had to wait to hear from us because I sms'd a wrong number. Everything was as expected and even better. We are happy with our choise to stay at Son's house while in Antwerp.
Warm welkom, fantastisch huis, ontzettend sfeervol, heerlijke pannenkoeken, een dikke aanrader!!! Wij hebben hier met zes meiden mogen logeren en hebben een onwijs leuk weekend beleefd in dit mooie huis in het centrum van Antwerpen.

About the Host, Son
I am Son! I enjoy traveling as much as most of our guests. Cycling is my passion, for short as well as long distances.
The Antwerp Central Train Station is a short walk from my house. If you would arrive by train, I will gladly come and meet you there, if you don't find your way here.
With the Metro station and rental bike stand around the corner, you can get to the old center of Antwerp in minutes, even when it's raining (which does happen in Belgium, from time to time...)
My job allows me to choose my working hours, so I can make time for my guests. Wifi is available, as are city guide maps and metro cards.
I hope to see you soon, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Ik ben Son, 'doorzomerde' fietster, van een trip naar Parijs tot een rondje wereld, en heb dan ook graag reizigersvolk over de vloer, om verhalen en ervaringen te delen bij het ontbijt.
Mijn job laten ons meestal toe om mijn werkuren te kiezen, dus kan ik vaak tijd vrij maken voor mijn gasten,
Als je vragen of opmerkingen hebt, aarzel dan niet om mij te contacteren.
Graag tot gauw, en warme groeten,
