This house is amazingly nice,clean, modern, and spacious! Marc and Lut are excellent hosts and genuinely nice people. The amount of room in the house, the kitchen and other amenities, and the cleanliness were all great surprises. There is a bus line close to the house that takes you to the center of Ghent quickly. Carrefour has a very large supermarket a short drive up the road. Ghent itself is not only a very picturesque town but also is central to taking short trips to Antwerp, Bruges, and Ypres. (Take the train to Antwerp and/or park on the outskirts; the city traffic is horrible due to construction.)
This is probably the nicest stay we have ever had through Homeaway. If we get back to Belgium, we would definitely return here.
My family (4 adults and 2 young children) spent 5 pleasant and comfortable days at this house. The house provided plenty of space, a nice kitchen, and comfortable bedrooms and was as nice as it had looked in the photos. The children also had the yard to play in (and no mosquitos - which had bothered friends who were staying in Ghent itself). While outside of downtown Ghent, the property is located close enough that the drive in was quick (though the streets in medieval Ghent can be confusing). I was attending a conference and so did not spend much time sightseeing, but I do highly recommend taking a boat tour (40 minutes). If we had had time, the house would also have provided a base from which to explore Brussels and Bruges. The landlady was very kind, responsive, and helpful. I would gladly rent this house again!
