We stayed in the apartment on the 18th floor with three little kids and loved everything. (You can not overvalue the feeling of coming HOME, utterly exhausted after long walks through a yet unknown city…)
Jean really has a knack for interior. The apt. is perfectly equipped and offering everything you need. It features two balconies overlooking the whole city. So even if you do not want to leave the house, you can see the Atomium, Grand Place, etc. from there ;)
The kids were elated by the urban farm just next to the building. Where they even had donkeys. Most of all Jean himself was incredibly helpful, uncomplicated and nice. I absolutely recommend him as a host!
Hôte attentionné et appartement magnifique.
un appartement à la fois etonnant et chaleureux comme suspendu au 18 étage d'une tour.
Vue magnifique et sens du détail.
on en redemande....

Very kind and helpful host, the neighbourhood is,close to all the restaurants and shopping areas. Perfect please to stay with 1 or 2 persons. The kitchen is a little bit unpractical for cooking.
The appartment is really good and in a great neighbourhood. The owner Jean is very friendly and helpful. I can fully recommend to stay there.
Lovely experience staying at Jean's in Antwerp. His information about the apartment is totally honest. It is very centrally located, yet has a quiet bedroom for sleeping, many good restaurants and cafes near by(even a Laundromat which is handy for longer stays) ...basically everything one needs for a great stay. Plus I found the apartment to be spacious and luminous which makes it comfortable.
Apartment is as advertised on the AirBnb profile- it's very comfortable, spacious and warm with good heating. Jean and Julie were very easy to contact, friendly, and accommodating. Excellent and easygoing communication. This apartment is situated in a great location with some very nice restaurants and bars nearby. The area and the apartment block itself also felt extremely safe and wasn't noisy at night or even at the weekends. I stayed here for almost two weeks and will happily return next time I come to Antwerp!
Appartment as on Airbnb profile. Jean and Julie are great hosts and very quick to assist on any unexpected concern.
1 separate bedroom appartment more convenient for
2 persons max. Excellent location with many great restaurants and cafés nearby. Only problem is difficulty for parking.
We loved staying at Jean's apartment. It's actually more spacious than it looks on the pictures. The neighborhood itself is great with lots of terraces, antique stores around the corner and a couple of supermarkets nearby. The fantastic Saturday market is just two minutes away as is the Hortus Botanicus.
The location is totally central, any neighborhood you would like to visit is nearby, and for me the park around the corner was great for my morning run. The sleeping room is very quiet, although we found the bed a bit hard.
The reception by Julie was great, with some extra food in the fridge and a fresh plant on the table. Very sweet. Communication was great and problems solved easily and smoothly. All and all very lovely and most definitely recommended, also for longer stays.
Let me start by saying Jean & Julie are the most wonderful hosts my partner and I have ever encountered. They are incredibly polite and so very helpful. Their apartment is located right next to some groovy bars and cafes, with public transport a minutes walk away and the main shopping district about 10 minutes by foot. My partner and I had the pleasure of staying for 4 days and we would recommend this cosy, well designed apartment to anyone considering staying in Antwerp and plan to book again when we return. Thank you for a beautiful stay!
A terrific apartment in an excellent location. Super friendly owner with very helpful friends!
Jean is a great host and always makes sure you get the real sense of the city you are visiting. He is an "experience" traveller and knows how to share this art of enjoying a place from the senses. Totally reliable and responsible.
As for his house, it is an amazing home, with 360º views of Brussels, flat with loads of personality. Quiet, centric-ish and in a safe area of the city.
Jean is one of my very best friends. There is not one person like him. I love him deaply, could not imagine him not having in my life. He's very artistic and this you can see in the way he organises his life and home/house. I've spent many "little holidays" with him at his place in Brussels and it's always been such a delight being there. It's an amazing appartment. You feel as you are on top of the world here with the amazing views. Always had great sleeps, breakfasts, dinners, parties and laughter there. It is definitely one of the bests spots to stay in Brussels and very near the centre and all the public transport options.
This is a very nice space in the city, close enough to walk to many of the attractions, bars, shops and galleries. From the eighteenth floor you can experience a stunning panoramic view of Brussels on both of the balconies. I would very much recommend this flat if you enjoy a space with character and charm. And great grand-pere will watch over you while you cook!
Hi there, I know Jean for many many years; I met him when he moved to Antwerp for studying and always stayed in contact. He is the most creatice host I know, great cook, great company to go out for an opera, theatre, restaurant, dancing, name it.
He loves to travel also and would always head for interesting things to discover. Great company, passionate, interesting and interested in all things, you would be so happy to meet him and will keep him in your circle of friends!
a mutual friend introduced me to jean a few years ago and it was very easy to empathize with him. full of interests and passions, jean knows how to carry you in his many magic worlds. he is a great traveler so he knows very well what you need, and as i'm an airbnb host too i'm able to recognize an excellent guest, so i highly recommend (website hidden) do you need advice? dance with him, you can not do without...
I know both apartments very well because I had the chance to stay there many manytimes already. - They are absolutely stunning and perfectly located - a great basist to discover the city. So if you make it to Brussels or to beautiful Antwerpen don't miss Jean's place.
This flat is stunning, and we really enjoyed our time here. The views are like no where else. You can see across the entire city from the balcony, and we spent most of our time sitting there gazing at the wonderful sunsets. The flat itself is spacious and very well decorated, and not to mention perfectly located next to the metro and near the centre, which made getting around very easy. Jean is really cool and knows his city well. He gave us tips on where to go and what was going on in the city. You should not think twice about staying here, you won't regret it!!
I stayed with Jean during my first weekend in Brussels, while looking for my own place, and his amazing flat - with its double panorama windows from both the living room and the bedroom - were a great way to get an 'overview' of the city. The flat is also so nicely decorated, Jean kindly told me about the history of a couple of items - family portraits, flee market finds - and I always like to be inspired by the flats I stay in. It is also close to many of the better clubs, city centre and the tube, which was a great relief. Thanks Jean for letting me stay!
Hi there! I have known Jean for about 15 years now, since he was studying at the art academy in Antwerp. He is an intelligent, passionate, friendly, outgoing, original, open and creative person. Jean helped me out a couple of times with great enthusiasm and professionalism, when I came up with another crazy plan to organize an event. I am familiar with BnB and I think he will make the perfect host: accomodating and supportive but not intruding in your experience of Brussels! Just had a quick glance at his gorgeous flat - I would want to stay there definitely next time we are town!
