Lovely, comfortable house for exploring Bruges

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 stayed in At Home at the beginning of July 2014 and loved every minute of it. The house was perfect for my husband, our three kids and me to relax and literally feel at home. It is very well equipped (especially the kitchen), nicely decorated, and had everything we needed. The bedrooms upstairs are lovely, and so comfortable after a long day of walking and exploring.
The location of the house is great, a beautiful 10 minutes walk to the center Markt, there is a grocery store very near, and a wonderful bakery, De Soete, just a short walk away. We walked everywhere in Bruges from the house with no problem, and of course Bruges itself is stunningly beautiful with lots to see.
We had a car and were so thankful for the parking space provided. The house has a front door on the street and a back door to a lovely little garden which winds along to the beautifully manicured larger garden. The swing on the huge tree in the center was my son's favourite thing to do! Francis and Louise are such nice people, it was a pleasure every time we saw them. They are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable.
Although we spent quite a bit of time in Bruges, we also did some day trips from Bruges to Ghent, and to Ypres for a Flanders Fields tour. Both were fantastic.
We would recommend this house to anyone 100% and do intend to go back one day and stay.

We had a lovely week staying 'At Home' in Brugge. The accommodation was perfect for our family with everything close to hand. The weather was good during our week's stay in February. We will be recommending this to our friends. We hope to return at some stage in the future to see if the egg cup collection has grown even more!

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5
"At Home" was a charming place to stay with a wonderful location. It was an easy walk from the house to all of the attractions in Brugge. The grocery store up the street was perfect for picking up breakfast items and we cooked at the house two nights as well. We were 2 families with 4 kids total (2 infants). Francis and Louise were so accommodating, they brought over toys to for the kids to play with, had a small crib and a bed rail for the bunk beds. They were also were able to answer any questions and concerns about the house, and we appreciated their knowledge of Brugge. Our only suggestion would be that the chairs in the dining room and the couch in the living room need to be updated as they are not very comfortable. Thank you for a delightful stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks Tracy for you kind review.
Thanks also for your suggestions.
The chairs in the dining room are ancient: some are restored and some need restoration. It's true.
The couch came directly from the upholsterer and you were the first user...maybe too new!!!
We buy the other armchair now in January 2013.

Kind regard

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5
I would give this property TEN stars if I could. The house is delightful, in a quiet street 10 minutes walk to the center of Bruges. This neighborhood is praised in Rick Steves' book for charm, convenience, discoveries and serenity. The Carrefours grocery a block away had everything, including fresh bread and croissants delivered at least twice a day. Several nearby restaurants (5 min walk) were a joy. The house is exceptionally well equipped for a rental, with top-grade appliances and a large sunny kitchen. The garden is brilliant. Best of all were the hosts, who were gracious, generous, knowledgeable, and helpful in every way. They have been renting for 16 years and their experience shows. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Lovely Charming Home!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed "At Home" for 12 days in June of 2012, it's the first time I have used this site to find a rental and I must say we were all very pleased with it, it had everything we needed. My mom is from Kokelare orginally and we've never been there so we made this trip with my mom, 2 sister's, brother-in-law and my Aunt, all 6 of us, there was plenty of room specially with the 2 full baths and 1/2 bath for all of us to get ready! It was also nice having a private parking area. The garden was beautiful but it was ashame we never got to use it because of the weather. Francis and Louise were very helpful when we needed them but otherwise left us to ourselves. I hope to go back with my husband and hopefully they will still have this place waiting for us!! Thank You very much for your "At Home", Marlene

Great time

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at "at home". The location was quiet and relaxing but a short walk to everything we wanted to see. There was plenty of room for us and having the extra bathroom/wc was a plus for everyone to get ready. The secure parking spot was great to park the car and leave it once we arrived. I wish the weather had cooperated a bit more for our stay to be able to use the great garden area. The one day we sat in the sun with a glass of wine was great.
