About the property

Spacious bright apartment with 2 bedroom and free parking in the heart of Ghent.

In a small graffiti alley you will find a surprise. A renovated apartment for 4 people in an old building in 60s style. Thanks to the large windows you have a stunning view on the Lys and a small marina. The vista on the rippling water creates a constant relaxed 'zen' atmosphere, despite you are in the heart of the city center. i feel a little bit sad by the moment because there are big works in the neighbourhood. Sometimes you can be disturbed by noise of the machines, but lucky they stop at 4PM and they don't work in the weekends. The apartment is furnished with timeless design. The kitchen has a cooking island with induction, microwave oven, dishwasher, fridge etc.. Bedroom 1 has a double bed 1m60 to 2 m. Bedroom 2 has a double bed 1m80 to 2 m. These bedroom is furnished as a little studio with a seating. Just good for your adolescents, On that way, they have a place for themselves. Less suitable for small childeren as the balustrade around the windows is not very high. The spacious bathroom has a shower and washbasin. There is a storage room with a washing machine. There is a free parking provided in the underground garage of the building.

I wish our guests a 'Flow' experience :

'Flow' means after all:

A mental condition in which a person completely absorbed in his pursuits, with a focus, concentration and loss of sense of time. The activity is intrinsically rewarding..Success assured ...

Excellent but a bit noisy

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very spacious and comfortable. It has wonderful views over the river. It is well situated, half way between the city centre and the two major art galleries. We highly recommend the stay. There is a major construction side just beside the flat, and the workers start early on weekdays (6.00 am). There is also a bar nearby that is a bit noisy, particularly at closing time (4.00 am). Other than that, the flat is quiet, and there is no noise from neighbours. There are excellent food shops nearby, and may places to eat and to savour excellent Belgian and Ghent beers. Highly recommended.

Very clean spacious apartment, great view over river

  • 5 of 5

Met by Nicky & her husband, who were very friendly & helpful pointing us in the right direction for centre & shopping. Fell in love with the surround hifi system, fantastic sound.

The approach in to the apartment is a little shabby but Nicky told us it was being renovated, and there is a building site next door which had a pump running all night.

Your car is parked in a garage under the building with a coded door, so very safe.

Overall once the building works have finished it will be an ideal place to stay again.

Many Thanks to Nicky for the use of a beautifull apartment.

Very clean and modern

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is in a very convenient location. An express grocery store is right down stairs. An amazing hotdog place called wurst is also there. The apartment is very modern and spacious. We were four adults with two kids and I have to say we, including the kids, loved it. There are no walls, all windows looking out to the river. Great views in the morning and night. Parking, considering in the middle of a European city, couldn't be better. We had rented a bus basically and Nicky arranged for the parking free of charge. We were only surprised by the bathroom situation but it wasn't a deal breaker. We used the kitchen extensively which was very convenient for us cooking for the kids. Overall a great stay.

Nicky is a very nice lady who was very accommodating. Thank you very much for having us Nicky.

We enjoyed our stay. They do have construction next door but it did not bother us over the weekend. Easy walking distance to sites.

Perfect Apartment, perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at this apartment. The owner Nicky, met us as agreed and gave us lots of helpful information about the property and things to do in Ghent together with maps and other brochures. The view is terrific though we were lucky no building works were happening next door as that could have been noisy! The location is perfect being a 5 minute walk into the old town and having lots of good cheap restaurants right outside the front door, together with a supermarket and bakery for essentials. On site parking made life so easy as could park the car and forget it. Could not have asked for more.
