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 ...

Delightful host and great apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Our host (Nikky) was very helpful (in a number of important ways) during the whole of our 4 night stay in her apartment.

The apartment is very well located - with a great view of the river - and well equiped for a relaxing stay.

Would we recommend staying here? Definitely yes.

Big, bright and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this canal front apartment. Nicky is lovely, helpful and responds quickly. The apartment was spotless, comfortable, well equipped and quite large. It could handle 2 couples or a family with room to spare. The views out the windows were both beautiful and entertaining. We spent many hours watching life on the canal and the fascinating construction of the building next door. The flat is centrally located with easy access to all the sights.

Thank you Nicky!

Great view, wonderful city

  • 5 of 5

Nicky was a wonderful host. She met us at the property, gave us an overview of the area and her favorites. She had lots of literature in the apartment---and oh, what an apartment. Beautiful views of the river. We loved watching the river traffic go by. Everything in Ghent is within walking distance. Ghent is a wonderful and picturesque city--good restaurants, nice shopping, lots of history, beautiful canal walks and picture opportunities. The train station is a 15 minute walk and easy 25 minute train trip for the day to Bruges or Brussels. We stayed 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed using this property as our home base.

A stunning retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

Nicky was a very generous host. This apartment is absolutely beautiful, with an overlook of the canal and very comfortable. Gent is a compact city and was easily walkable to all of the notable historic sites that travelers come to see. Nicky equipped us with the 5 best book that was a wonderful guide to restaurants and shops with a few of her own discoveries. We enjoyed the beauty of Gent , the street of churches, the Graffiti street and Wurst. Thank You Nicky

It is a lovely apartment with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

First--- we were met at the train station by Nicky so were quickly in the apartment on a rainy day. Everything was as advertised. The apartment is within 5 min of bus stop and then the bus takes you everywhere. Grocery is a few steps away and a great,friendly Italian restaurant a few steps away. My wife and I are in our late 70's but got around Ghent easily. We were there for 3 weeks, used our Eurail pass to visit many places (Bruges and Luxembourg, etc. Suggest you also buy a weekly bus pass for transportation around town. It is also good in Bruges. Nicky found a clinic where my wife could get her blood tests.And when we left for Vienna she took us to the train station. The evenings are great as you sip the wine and watch the river. Highly recommend.

Amazing apartment, wonderful hosts!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW.... just... WOW! If I could give this 6 stars, I would. This was a case where the apartment was even more beautiful in person than in the photos (and it looked very nice in the photos!). It's huge (to us--we're used to "NYC-sized" spaces), immaculately clean, and is tucked away on a safe, quiet side street (but is walkable to all conveniences, which are just around the corner). Although we didn't need to use the kitchen, it was stocked with loads of pots and pans, dishes, cooking utensils, wine glasses/cups, and pretty much everything one could want for whipping up a meal at home. Most important for us, my traveling partner has mobility issues and can't walk far... so the elevator, plus the location of the apartment (the trams are just outside and go to all major sites) made this apartment ideal for us. The inside is tastefully decorated to create a quiet, open, and airy space. So pleasant to wake up to! I also can't say enough about our hosts, Nicky and Gi. They are warm, very humanistic people. To say that they went above and beyond to ensure that we enjoyed our stay would be a gross understatement. They essentially rescued our vacation when it looked like several of our plans would be cancelled due to the railway strikes in Belgium. So, thanks so their solutions, we were not only able to enjoy Ghent and their beautiful apartment, but also, the last few days of our vacation. Thank you!!!
