Kim & I love travelling. Airbnb is a really nice way to travel and to meet new people, who can give you the best advice on their hometown...

We stayed four days at Sofie&Kim house in august and loved the excellent stay we were allowed. The house is full of beautiful objects from Sofie&Kim trips around the world. This personalized touch and their interesting personalities made us living a perfect stay in Ghent (Gand). They also gave us good advices for our excursions of the city and the nearings. The breakfasts were each days different and always a surprise! We enjoyed them a lot. Even the last day when we had a very early departure (4:30 a.m.) we found a nice breakfast.
Sofie&Kim are very good and intelligent persons and it's a pleasure to share point of views about trips, cities, and liffe.
We greatly recommend this B&B: it's very special. Thanks Sofie&Kim. Donatella, Paolo (Italy)
Sofie and Kim were great hosts!! This was our first rental through Airbnb. Their property was ideal for our stay in Ghent. Sofie shared many ideas about local eateries in Ghent and another town we took a day trip to. We would definitely stay again.
The bedroom is on the second floor of the property, accessible by a very steep twisty staircase. We stayed during a very hot, dry week. There is no air conditioning so we kept windows open. There are no window screens. Gent has a lot of canals and lots of mosquitoes so bring or get bug repellent.
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
It was my second time visiting the place of Sofie & Kim. Like the first time the room was spacious and tidy. Sofie & Kim are very friendly hosts, they make you feel at home.
Quiet central location with very nice host.
Hope to come back
Eine sehr schöne Alternative zu einem Hotel. Sofie und Kim waren sehr gastfreundlich. Das Frühstück war gut und jeden Tag gab es eine kleine Überraschung. Die Lage zur Altstadt ist klasse. Das Klappsofa war besser als viele Hotelbetten. Das Haus allein ist schon einen Besuch wert. Habe mir zum ersten Mal ein Bad teilen müssen und es hat super geklappt. Ich würde jederzeit wieder für einige Nächte dort bleiben und kann Sofie & Kim nur empfehlen.
Absolutely STELLAR--I could not possibly recommend Sofie and Kim enough! They were incredibly warm, welcoming, and flexible, accommodating me at the last minute when I'd gotten myself in a bit of a mess with my travel plans. On arrival, they were even kind enough to share a plate of yummy treats and a pot of tea because they could see I was so stressed! That level of consideration remained constant and evident throughout my stay with them. Their home is in an absolutely perfect location, in a safe area with easy access to the city center. One of the neatest perks is that Sofie is one of the editors for In Your Pocket, which produces an amazing travel guide to the city. Not only do you get a copy of it and several other helpful maps/guides, Sofie herself has her finger on the pulse of what's going on in the city and can provide you with fantastic personal recommendations. Even if you don't do much exploring, though, you're still in for a treat; their home is in a stunning medieval building, and they've decorated it immaculately with gorgeous art and details that reflect their adventurous, yet tasteful, personalities. Honestly, I'd probably take more pictures there than at most of the "tourist sites" in the city! :) The room itself is spacious, very comfortable, and very clean. It is up one flight of very narrow stairs, which might cause trouble for those with mobility issues, but should be fine for all others (and kinda cool!); Sofie and Kim even grabbed my (very heavy) bags for me and carted them up and down without me even asking for help. The food they provided was AMAZING and plentiful (it alone was pretty much worth the price of the room to me). The facilities are absolutely gorgeous, too--one of the most beautiful bathrooms I have EVER seen in my life. You do have to make sure to coordinate with them schedule-wise in terms of when you need to use the bathroom, especially as they have a baby, but if you're willing to be just a bit flexible this shouldn't be a problem for anyone. My stay was a little bit hectic/pressured because of some complicated scheduling issues, but Sofie was very communicative the whole way through, and it was clear that she was just anxious to make sure everything went smoothly for all involved. They clearly know what they're doing and conduct themselves with the utmost of professionalism; their level of care and experience really shows with the little perks they offer (high-quality bath products, a range of towels, even a little doll, all in a neat basket waiting for you). It was much more like a boutique hotel than some of the "couch-crashing" Airbnbs you'll find--in fact, it was far better than a boutique hotel. This listing is really a hidden gem, and I'm almost sad to review them so highly lest they become too popular for me to book with next time!...
Sofie, Kim and even Tobin were perfect hosts and the house could't be in a better location.
Sofie told me everything i needed to know about the best places in the city and even gave the best tips on what to visit in brussels. She's really a wonderful person, easy-going and with a curious mind always interested in getting to know other cultures and that's visible in every detail of the house.
Oh... and their breakfast is great!
Sophie welcomed us warm and friendly. She served us a great breakfast to kick start the day. We believe it's much better to go to her place than a hotel. The bedroom is perfect and the house is amazing! We highly recommend the place.
Appartement idéalement situé, la chambre est confortable et privée. la salle de bain est agréable et la rue assez calme.
Nos hôtes ont été très accueillants et nous ont proposé un plan et différentes idées de visites, et surtout nous ont conseillé un délicieux restaurant au bord de l'eau.
Le petit déjeuner nous été servi dans la chambre sur une petite table, petit thé, petite corbeille de pain, un peu de fromage et de jambon et on était prêt pour notre journée à Gant !
Sofie was a perfect guest, she was hosted in our apartment with her friends. Everything was fine and They left the apartment very clean and tidy. I highly recommend her to all the airbnb comunity!!
The contact with Sofie&Kim was always nice and friendly and they were clean and treated the flat very good. I can recommend them as guests!
Very Friendley and nice people who took good care of my appartement! thank you. Hope you enjoyed your stay !
Si nous avions prédit de passer une soirée pleine de rire et de bonne humeur avec cette remarquable famille remplie d'enthousiasme, nous étions loin de penser que des liens se seraient tissés en peu de temps! Tous aussi charmants les uns que les autres sans oublier Tobin et Miro les adorables petits garçons.
Au final, soirée inoubliable qui nous laissera pour longtemps de beaux souvenirs passés ensemble!!!
Nous en profitons pour vous embrasser et vous souhaiter plein de bonnes choses car vous êtes tous exceptionnels et formidables.
Marylin et David.
Merci pour votre gentillesse, ce fut très agréable de vous avoir comme hôtes. Peut-être à bientôt.
Personnes extrêmement sympathiques.
Appartement rendu propre.
Je recommande Sofie, Kim et leur adorable petit homme.
What can I say more about Sofie&Kim ? They are really charming guests, trustfull & awaken. They placed good vibes in my house :D So great talking with them and learning to know each other's life. It was a real pleasure welcoming them home and I can surely recommand them. You come back when you want !
Kim en Sofie waren leuke mensen uit Gent. Ze vonden het een superplekje en hadden een lekker weekend . Gingen op fietsen van kids naar de stad. Paradiso. Harstikke welkom volgende keer!
Sofie, Kim et leur petit garçon sont des voyageurs très agréables, respectueux, et intéressants. De très bons moments passés avec eux. Des voyageurs que je recommande.
wat leuk! Sofie is very nice, a a perfect guest. Her wonderful ability to speech so many languages is simply amazing. Open minded and really respectful of people (and house)... what else? Tot ziens Sofie!
FR Sofie est vraiment très sympa, et et une parafite (website hidden) merveilleuse capacité à parler tellement de langues différentes est tout simplement bluffante!
I met Sofie and Kim a few years ago when they we're visiting my sister-in-law....we loved them instantly and they became part of our family. You could not ask for a more personable couple who are interesting, creative and not to mention fluent in several languages including English! You will only be enhanced by their presents in your life.

We have stayed with the couple for a few days. I must say I am very impressed with Kim's handmade table (work of art) and their lovely leafy green green garden. Had my morning coffee there with their cats is one of my cherished memories of Ghent. Sofie showed us the Ghent style fries near the best local beer joint...yummmms..
Sofie is a very warm and nice person and Ghent is a real gem to discover !! I would definitely recommend staying at Sofie&Kim's place!
Sofie and Kim are the sweetest Belgians you'll ever meet. We met the couple a few years back while traveling through Nicaragua. We have kept in touch with them ever since. In 2010 they came travelling through the States and we hosted them iin NYC n the front and last leg of their trip. They were clean, organized, and responsible guests and we don't doubt that they will be the same as hosts. I highly recommend Sofie and Kim as Airbnb hosts!
I met Sofie randomly travelling in Istanbul and we stayed in contact. I ended staying with her and Kim when I went to Ghent and had an absolutely fantastic time! Very hospitable and helpful hosts and I really got to see (and taste) some lovely things in Ghent. Hope to see you guys again soon!
Why to go to Kim & Sofie...
original house right in the center, yet quiet!
open minded and enthousiastic hosts who know the city by heart!
Stijn & Els, friends from the city..
We have known Kim and Sofie for over 3 years. we met them in Nicaragua and they came to visit us in Colorado. We hope to some day soon go visit them at their house in Belgium. They are wonderful house guests, the kind who slip away during the day on an adventure while yo are at work, and reappear with a bottle of wine or some beer and fixin's for dinner...and then proceed to make dinner! Both are creative individuals with a carefree outlook on life. I recommend Kim and Sofie as house guests!
Sofie and Kim are extremely warm and trustworthy people. They have an amazing house right in the heart of the city and can recommend lots of quirky and alternative places to visit as well as the more traditional sights. You won't be disappointed! In fact, you will leave there totally 'haberdashed' ;o)!!
A wonderful place right in the historic centre of Ghent, Kim and Sofie's home is truly worth a visit! The cosy house is conveniently located near the main sights and attractions Ghent has to offer. In a relaxed and carefree atmosphere, you get to explore the beautiful medieval city. Kim and Sofie know where to go to experience Ghent to the max and can show you every cool place to hang out, eat, dance etc. They undoubtedly will help you make your time in Belgium unforgettable!
I've been friends with Sofie & Kim for many years, they own a lovely house in the centre of Ghent, and they can tell you about all the cool places to go in Ghent and Belgium. Great hosts that will not disappoint you!
