The house is lovely, and Sven is great! The owners live next door, and are super nice and cooperative.
The house has a terrific location and is a short walk to stores, historic sites, rampart and park walks, and the "Last Post" at Menen Gate. The WWI sites and museums are a short drive away. It is even a short drive to Westvelteren and the famous monks" beer.
Parking is on the street, but was never a problem.
I highly recommend this property and the owners.
We stayed 3 nights at this location with our two teen-aged children. Check-in was easy, the apartment was beautifully appointed with all the extras you might need - including good WIFI!
It was about a 10 minute walk to the main square, with interesting shops, cafes and bistros along the way. The parking was easy and free. There is a steep set of stairs from the main floor to the floors with the bedrooms (2 bedrooms on the 2nd floor and an additional bedroom on the 3rd floor). The stairs weren't a problem for us, but if you have very small children or mobility problems, this might be tricky - not unlike many other European VRBOs we have rented in the past. The owners went above and beyond to help us solve a storage issue (we rented 4 tandem bicycles for a small group of travellers) and they were very helpful in finding a solution on where to park the bicycles safely (in their own personal garage a couple of blocks from the apartment!). Can't say enough good things about the apartment. Would go back again in a heartbeat.
