About our home

Our home is very unique. We have both travelled the world and never encountered any place like it. It is a peaceful, calming haven situated on the 5th floor of a small apartment unit. You might have had a busy city day but the moment you take the elevator and step into our flat. You can rest and come to peace.
We have carefully and lovingly designed and also built with our own hands this apartment. There was no intereference of an architect. We all imagined it ourselves.
First of all: our flat is excpetionally luminous. It is surrounded by two large balconies. One gives out onto other apartments, the other offers panoramas over Brussels and onto a beautiful gothic church, which lights up like a fireball in the winter when the sun is low. ( see pictures) This also means you are very private on that side, people cant peep into the house. Privacy.
We are both dancers and we love space. You will find that we have a very very large living space and kitchen, with carpets to lounge on and comfy sofas. We have one seperate showerroom with toilet, 1 classic bedroom with en suite bathroom with a bathtub, and 1 other bedroom with a very comfy futon. This is also a room where we exercise, there are swedish bars and iyengar yoga ropes.
We have a fully equipped kitchen, with oven, gasstove and dishwasher. And handy appliances to do all your fun cooking experiments if you wish. The largest balcony with views on the church and the city are also connected directly to the kitchen if you'd like to enjoy your morning coffee or evening apero on the terrace.
There is an elevator. And there is a covered parking for the cars of the building.
Please: No shoes in our apartment.
ever.
we have a smooth liquid (polyurethane) floor. it can scratch easily so only socks or bare feet !
and finally...
There is another seperate bathroom ! ( YAY!)

More about us

  1. We are a friendly couple from Belgium and Slovakia. We have a 6 month old baby son, Loup ( wolf in French, pronounced as Lou :))

  2. We are both dancers Kim (31) and Martin (46), choreographers and dance teachers. We are both working with renowned dance companies and we have travelled all over the world. We know what it means to live in someone else's home, because that's what we are used to for our work. ( often during a creative process the dancers get a real home, not just an unpersonal flat or hotel ).

    A few important things to note before you contact us.

    We are both very caring and respectful towards other people's property and we expect you to do the same.
    We love our place and we care about it dearly.
    We are very tidy, we maintain things.
    It is important for us to have people in our place who understand this and who don't mind taking care of our place, so not just "using" it. We can guarantee you that if we stay in your place you will be very pleased with the state in which we have left your home. We have been complimented on this numerous times when leaving a place.
    We are tidy, non-smokers, quiet, friendly and polite :).

    If all of this talks to you and you want to be in our place, dont hesitate to get in touch :)

  3. We love nature. Dont mind writing us if you live in the mountains. We love hiking.
    We also love the sea.
    Professionally it is interesting for us to spend a bit of time in Paris ( also for Kim's family who lives there ) we would be interested to exchange for a month or more in Paris. Maybe even several times a year.
    We have lived in Salzburg and would also be very interested in longer term swapping !
    New york also... !
    Lausanne, Lac Leman
    Alps
    italy, barcelona,.... ! we are interested in many places!

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

We live in a one way street overlooking the St-Remi church and a playground for kids.
There are plenty of supermarkets walking distance away like Delhaize, Aldi and Lidl.
It is an excellent base to explore the city. We have two metro stops very nearby, 1 tram and busstop.
Two parks walking distance away.
And we are 1 km from the center, right by the newly renovated Tour and Taxi site, and right by KANAL - centre Pompidou and Kaaitheater.
