Welcome in our small but cosy studio situated on the top of our house! Sarah, Henna and I live right between the train station and city center. With a spacious shower, cosy living-room, well equipped kitchen and comfortable mezzanine you will feel like home. Sharing in common only the main door and stairs, you remain completely independent. Helping you with music, books, info about Ghent and instant conversation, we want you to feel at home. There is good parking possibility at 800m (3 €/day).

The space
This studio is located in a typical middle class house of Gent. On top of the house, a small loft studio is waiting for new Airbnb-guests! I have renovated it with help of my friends from Moupila (architecture and design) and some other professionals. It has definitely become the best place of the house and it has character and an original style. Regularly, I add something or try to improve it. The ground-surface is only 40m2 but it feels big because the bedroom is on a platform (and you sleep there very well). Everything is compact but sits on the right place: bathroom, kitchen, salon, desk-office. Many couples had a great time here because you wander as tourists in the romantic and historical city of Ghent but you can come to relax at home, in your own private studio. It is simply cosy: you will be living a feeling of comfort, warmth, and relaxation in Ghent. Temperature is naturally constant thanks to an excellent isolation, three velux windows that provides light and fresh air and a central heating which complete during winter days. During summer, you still can open windows thanks to protection against mosquitoes.

Guest access
Guests have there own studio on top of the house, so they can easily survive there for a few days :-). Sarah and I also live in the house. On level zero, there is the living room and kitchen for us. Just come and say hallo or have breakfast or dinner with us, when time suits. Sitting next to the wood fire in winter, it is possible. Attention: the studio is at level 3, that's why I help guests bringing in their luggage as much as I can.

Other things to note
There is a middle sized fridge. I have some basics for breakfast and cooking (coffee, cereals, tea, sugar, oil, ...). Towels are provided. Wifi. Sound equipment with blue tooth, USB, CD, iPod,... There is no TV. Comfortable desk-office. Good basis to work here for some days during conference or courses.

Location

Ghent, Flanders, Belgium

My house is next to the 'Kortrijkse-steenweg'. This is an important and very known street and axis because it relies the railwaystation (St-Pieters) to the center of the city. So, there is a tram-stop at 50 m of my house, where you can take tram n°1 direct to the historical center. The 'Citadelpark' is the biggest park in town, only 250m of my house. And not so for away is sport and green area center 'Blaarmeersen' and 'Watersportbaan'. In resume: a very good location and starting point to discover Gent.

I live in Gent since I was studying for Bio-engineer. Now, my wife Sarah and our little baby live with me in 'Our house in the middle of the street'. I worked first as development agent for a Belgian NGO in drinking water projects, especially in Africa. Now I work as a teacher of sciences, math and/or geography. Apart from treeclimbing, I don't have any other specific hobbies as such, but I have lots of interests, to discover the world, people, nature and to learn how to live this life! I like biking, talking & walking, water & forests, mountains & trees, music & movies and my ambitions are green & peaceful! Everything you give or do for others, someday you will be rewarded for that. Do ut des.

During your stay
If you wish to come and say hallo or have once breakfast or dinner with us, it is all possible when our time-schemes allow it. Sitting around the wood fire in winter with a belgian beer is also possible ;-). We share a whole list of information about pubs and restaurants in Ghent. Personal advice can help you to make an easy choice, especially for the first day. I am always there to help you if any other problem occurs. Just ask for it, if you need something, mostly borrowing doesn't cost anything. We live with three people in the house (my girlfriend Sarah, me and another friend Abel), so you may never feel completely alone in the house.
But off course, you have your own private spacious mini-loft and we fully understand if you just want to spend some romantic time together or if you are just adventurous willing to discover everything on your own. Sometimes, we have also limited interaction possibilities (work, own holidays). Anyway, free wifi and Google will help you too.
