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'

Great Location - Great flat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for the Light Festival in Ghent in 2018. The location was absolutely brilliant and so close to the city centre. We walked absolutely everywhere we could.

The apartment was spacious, light and clean. We couldn't have asked for more.

Although we never met Nicky, the owner; the communication with her was fast and engaging.

Overall, we highly recommend this place and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Ghent.

Christmas with family

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Christmas in this beautiful, well equipped and tastefully decorated apartment. The apartment is so comfortable, including the beds and the location was perfect as it’s so close to bars, restaurants and shops. Nicky was so helpful and made us feel so welcome. I would definitely stay here again when we return to Ghent!

Fabulous apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

Leading up to our arrival Nicky was very good keeping in touch and detailed on how to find the apartment. Nicky is a great host and shared loads of local information, great restaurants serving lovely traditional Belgium food as well as the local must see sights!

A really lovely apartment , spotlessly clean and really well appointed. While there was building work taking place, it certainly didn’t bother either my wife or me.

If you’re looking for a smart, well appointed apartment in a great locale - look no further than Nicky’s apartment. Highly recommended

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.
