I offer a comfortable room in my recently renovated house. Walk through the front door and public transport will take you very quickly to Leuven (student city), Brussels, … or walk through the back door and you are on the countryside (garden, fields, horses, abbey of Vlierbeek, pittoresque tavern “Rozenkrans” …)

The space

Furnished attic room (baptized as “Cuba room”). Room: 20 m², with extra heater (because one visitor had cold), rather for couples, as the bed is only 1m20 wide, table and 3 chairs, seat, rack, free WiFi

Guest access

You just enter through my house, you can of course always use the equipped kitchen with oven, and bathroom with bath and shower. With good weather, feel free to sit outside in my garden.
Just out of the garden, a narrow path through the fields leads to the pittoresque Abbey site of Vlierbeek, there is also a very cosy tarvern "Rozenkrans" (many Belgian beers!)
Connection (just across the street) to frequent public transport: Leuven ( or min), Brussels (45min)

Interaction with guests

I always have a good understanding with my guests, yet must admit, since I am usually quite busy, that I mostly do not have time to keep you company or show you around in Leuven. However, I can give you good advices about how to expore the neighbourhood for dining, hiking, jogging, bars, meeting people....

Other things to note

I will be so honest to mention the two disadventages on the room: the bed is only 1m20 wide (rather small for 2 persons) and the room is on the 2nd floor, whereas the toilet is on the ground flour. So now you know :-)

We stayed at Petra's place to easily get to Rock Werchter for 4 days. She is very friendly and very helpful. The place is exactly as shown in the pictures. What you see is what you get.

The house is really cosy and clean, interesting interior design. Petra is an extremely nice host. The bus stop is located right next to the door, so it does not take a lot of time to go to the city center. Overall, only good impressions! :)

I stayed at Petra 's place for 5 weeks. The room is very nice and it is actually bigger than it looks on the photos. Petra was very friendly and helpfull. The house is surrounded by nature and there is a garden with really nice view as well. I would definately recommend her place to anyone who is looking for accommodation around ths area.

I stayed at Petra's place for three night during a conference at UK Leuven. The house is located in a very fascinating area near an Abbey, with lots of green. Downtown is reachable on foot but it would take a little bit, but in front of the house there's a bus stop with many rides. Petra is a very nice host and will let you feel at home. Great stay. Very recommended for the dynamic travelers.

I tavelled to Leuven for a seminar and had a perfect and easy stay at Petra´s home. Next time I would stay at her place again!

Petra was an amazing host. Me and my wife lived here for almost 1 month and felt right at home. The place is very cozy, beautiful parks are nearby, close to station and all in all a great location. Thank you for an amazing time.

I´ve been for three months in Petra´s place and everything was great. The room is big and comfortable with a very useful heater, enough places to put the clothes and a big table with chairs to work. It was like living in an independent apartment but sharing the kitchen and the bathroom. I was there to finish my PhD, so it was really a very great place. Petra let me park the bike in her storage room outside the house (very useful). The house was only 10 minutes cycling from the city center and very close to the house there is a Spar (Super Market), bakery, a very big and spectacular park in which you can relax and do some sport activities and a very beautiful Abbey with a great bar. I went with my car and I had no problems to park it neither with the security of the neighborhood. I specially recommend this house for those who want to have their independence but not spending as much money as living alone. Petra is a very nice person and also her son (he is lovely), but they have their life and their rhythm, so don´t expect to be like when you share a house with other students. In my case, it was perfect; it was exactly what I was looking for. So quality-price it was perfect: 10! If I had to go back to Leuven I would repeat.
