“Carol’s 19th century house is full of character and it has very generous proportions, fitted with a new modern kitchen and a king size shower. The location could not be better: a very calm street, where we had little trouble parking our car (about ¤5 a day) and on walking distance of almost everything worth visiting. It is hardly 5 minutes to the Museum van Schone Kunsten in the beautiful and trendy Antwerp-South district and on every corner and square you will find a great variety of restaurants and cafés, which makes this city so enjoyable. We were very happy with Carol’s and Yvo’s tip to visit the brand new Red Starline Museum, near to the MAS. In fact all the information and description of the house was very well organized and helpful. We are looking forward to our next swap with Carol and Yvo.”
Carol's reviewsAs a host (3)
“A very nice exchange with Carol in her awesome and huge and charming house in April 2012, in a very quiet place in Antwerp, very close to the downtown. A lot a things to see, to visit, and to discover in this beautiful Belgian town. This long week end was as romantic as possible, with special attentions for us at our arrival. To recommend !! Cécile”
“We had this exchange between Antwerp and Bonn. Everything was just perfect - we even met our guests, arriving in Bonn before we got on the train to Antwerp. Their house really can compare with the museum of Peter Paul Rubens there - both beautifully decorated jewels. And even though the weather was dreadful it was one of our most enjoyable holidays knowing that we could at any time find shelter in this paradise. Needless to say that coming home to Bonn we found our flat as if nobody had been there at all. Perfect.”
Where is it?
My house is in the city of Antwerp, 20 minutes' walking distance from downtown which includes the tourist area and the business district, as well as the central train station. Within 5 or 10 minutes' walk are a number of museums including the Antwerp Royal Fine Arts Museum and many cafes and restaurants. My immediate surrounding neighborhood is primarily residential. Living on a side street of Antwerp's main road into the city center, public transportation is easily accessible. The location is ideal, within easy reach of everything that Antwerp has to offer and centrally located for trips to Brussels, Ghent, Bruges and other places in Belgium.
