Overview

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 ...

Welcome to 'Into the Flow'

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.

Excellent.

  • 3 of 5

A wonderful spacious clean well equipped apartment overlooking the canal and very central. Sadly impossible to stay due to immense major construction 50 metres outside from 7am -7pm (6am 1st morning).

Nicky did help by moving us to an apartment in Bruges (equally nice) but spoilt our trip a little.

Nicky had informed us about the construction but said it finished at 4pm which we could accept.

Owner's Response: I feel so sad about that...i think they work so hard and so long as the vacation was coming, they had maybe a deadline. Normally they work during the working days and not in the weekend. But rightly i am very unhappy with it.

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
