Overview

Bruges (Brugge) Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom ,1 queen sofabed, 1 full bathroom, 1 halfbath, sleeps 4 max

'Romance on the Canal' is a one bedroom apartment on the ground floor of a very quiet listed 1850 building. It is located just in front of one of the larger canals in Bruge. Walk out the door and feed the serene looking swans that live just at the bridge, a 1 minute walk, that leads to the special Artists Quarter and the central square, just a 5 minute walk, if you are not sidetracked by the many art galeries and interesting boutiques along the way.

The apartment is an open plan that surrounds a central patio. The kitchen, hall and bedroom all open with sliding glass doors to the patio area. There is a comfortable queen size sofa bed in the living area. The queen bedroom is very cozy! There is one full bathroom with a tub and shower off the bedroom and one half bathroom closer to the living area.

The kitchen is totally equipped with all appliances, large and small, all dinnerware,and picnic supplies. The decor is of high standard.

A Carrefour Express market is just on the other side of the canal, 3 minutes walk. We provide a rolling shopping caddie and canvas eco-friendly bags. There is also a parking disc for you to use. Parking can be found easily just on the street in front of the apartment.

There is a pharmacie just across the bridge , 1 minute.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Firstly, thank you Dawne for making the booking so easy and pleasant. It really was a pleasure to talk to you on the phone prior to our arrival and you really did make everything very easy. The apartment is stunning and the location perfect for a holiday in Brugge. You are close enough to the center Markt for a leisurely stroll in and far enough to be out of the crowds.

The furnishings are beautiful and to be honest, although the pictures on the internet are lovely, they really don't do it justice. It has everything you could possibly want for on holidays and much more.

We stayed 2 nights (3 people) and there was plenty of room. I would highly recommend this apartment and hope to be back one day.

Fantastic position in Bruges

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is absolutely wonderful. We had everything we could need when we stayed over Christmas and the New Year. It's position is ideal as you can walk to any restaurant or museum etc within minutes. There are loads of places to eat and drink nearby and a small supermarket across the canal.

We thought it might be noisy but the bedroom is at the rear of the property and we slept like logs!

We would highly recommend this apartment for a stay in Bruges.

Booking was simple, no money hassles and chatting with Dawne was easy.

Fabulous Base for a Visit to Bruges

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week in this lovely flat. It is well-located, on a lovely canal just off the busy tourist area but within a very easy walk to the Market Square and all attractions. There is a Express market just across the canal, but specialty shops and a larger Delhaize supermarket are also within easy walking distance. The unit is well-equipped for cooking in, which we appreciated, as we like to eat in at night.

The unit is very attractive, with high ceilings and nicely decorated but not over-done. It was a delightful haven to come back to after a long day or touring lovely Bruges.

The owner has thoughtfully left guidebooks and maps for renters to use.

Our only regret is that it was rainy during all but one day of or visit and we could not use the very private patio....

the apartment added to our week of pleasure.

  • 4 of 5

my wife and i really enjoyed our week. the apartment was true to the photos, something that did concern me before we arrived was the fact that the photos could have possiblly been misleading. the place was clean, well maintained, and very tastefully decorated. this was the first time we ever rented an apartment in europe, and i must say that i will do it again. i would recommend this property to a friend.

we liked the comfortable feeling of having 2 bathrooms, a full apartment with space to relax as opposed to a hotel room. bed was comfortable, kitchen amenities were good and my wife appreciated a the little touches in the bathrooms and kitchens that make women very happy. there was a grocery market across the street. Brugge was a great city, some people told us 3 days was enough, we did a week and loved it. we found ourselves leisurely hanging around in the mornings and leaving the apartment around 11;00 having a nice late lunch, and doing lots of walking, biking, drinking great beer and wine, and eating high quality food.

Nice apartment, but unresolved problems

  • 1 of 5

As has been written, this is a very nice apartment in a great area. We were there 6-9 July 2013, but had no power the evening of the 6th, the morning of the 7th, and the morning of the 8th.  Dawne told us on the 7th that she would reimburse us for some of the inconvenience (no light on the first night, no morning coffee or hot showers the next two mornings), but 3 months later - nothing. We have been renting houses and apartment for over 10 years and have never experienced something like this. The apartment manager who works for Dawne and lives in the area never came over to help us out. Really disappointing service.

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect is an overused word but describes this apartment, the location & the attention to detail of the owner who even took the trouble to telephone us in Australia during the booking process. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer. If we were to return to Bruges we would definitely try to book this apartment again

In Bruges

  • 5 of 5

The exterior of the apartment belies what lies within! The decor and art work throughout will just knock your socks off( we went sock less the entire stay). The apartment is located on a lovely and quiet street only a very short walk from the bustling city center, so offered a beautiful refuge- we even got to use the terrace! Dawne is easily reached by phone and will talk as though you're long lost friends. Grocery right across the canal, several great restaurants close by( check on the back of laundry door). This was our first experience with VRBO and we will never go back to hotels! You'll love this apartment!
