This is our second stay. We came back after three years to the same lovely, modern and clean-lined apartment we first found in 2013. The surrounding district is still being developed. A fine addition is the best ice-cream shop I have ever found in Europe, just across the road, Cremerie Germaine. A welcome addition for the heatwave we had while we were there.
Paul and Gina are excellent hosts who handled our booking and arrival/departure efficiently.
The apartment has two large bedrooms and the equivalent of two full bathrooms. The kitchen is well equipped. There is cable TV with a full range of worldwide channels. Wi-Fi too. Of particular interest to UK guests is the availability of BBC1 and 2.
Once the tram extension to the area is complete the whole of Eijlande district will be even more accessible to the city centre than now.
We will be back and we know just where we shall be coming back too. Highly recommended.
We stayed at the apartment with two friends and found that it had everything we needed for a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. It is very large and full of light with interesting views over two different attractive docks. Its location is excellent for visiting the Red Star and MAS museums as well boat trips around the port. The supermarket underneath the apartment was very good and provided everything we needed and there were also restaurants within easy reach. It took about 30 minutes to walk into the centre of town and there were various routes available to make it an interesting stroll, including one along the river. We would certainly want to stay here again if we visited Antwerp in the future.
I cannot yet comment on the speed of the return of the security deposit as we only left the property yesterday. However I have no doubt it will be treated as quickly and efficiently as everything else has been with the rental of this property. Gina went out of her way to ensure that we were comfortable and that everything was more than acceptable to us and was a perfect hostess.
