Gorgeous condo and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is gorgeous with everything you need. The location is pefect quiet area but within walking distance to everything. It's on the top floor so you have the choice of using a small elevator or climbing a lot of stairs. The views from the condo are wonderful. Sophie was also very helpful. I recommend this condo as a place to stay in Bruges!

A great base for Belgium

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very well furnished and met all of our expectations. It was clean, comfortable and in a very safe neighborhood with a great location. We stayed 5 nights and used it as a base to visit many other parts of Belgium. Bruges is best in the evening when most of the touring hoards have left. The apartment comes with a parking spot that made it easy to come and go in a town with very limited parking. I highly recommend this apartment.

Amazing Property. Wonderful Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely spectacular property. We've stayed an numerous VRBO properties but this one is in a class by itself.

Perfect location. Quiet apartment, but close to everything. Amazing views from every room. Spotlessly clean. Extremely well equipped. Fabulous chef's kitchen with everything you could possibly need. Warm adjustable lighting. Very comfortable beds.

Even better yet was our amazing hostess Sophie. Great communications before, during and after the stay. She was flexible to our arrival/departure times, meeting us at the property and patiently explaining how everything worked in this very high tech apartment. She was immediately available throughout our stay; quickly responded to our questions.

Thanks to Sophie, our experience from start to finish was superb. We can't wait to return!

How to describe a perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

I must start with Sophie. She was an absolute delight! My husband and I felt we had made a life long friend from the day we met. Not only was she dealing with Americans, but forgetful 80 years old ones! She was immediately available whenever we had translation problems, and there were many! Specifically, when we put a soap tablet in the dryer with our dirty clothes, thinking they were in the washer!

The apartment was amazing.....comfort, view, location all exceptional.Every day was a treat looking at rooftops and spires from every window. Cozy living room with fire and comfortable furniture. The baths were wonderful and stocked with luxurious bath soaps and lotions! Our bedroom was perfect with a bed more comfortable than ours at home. Of course the elevator was a wonderful addition providing additional comfort and luxury! The private parking area in the courtyard was wonderful if you rented a car. There were lovely restaurants a stones throw from the apartment, one of our favorites Blackbird where you were greeted warmly by Stephanie.

There were NO negatives about our visit to Bruges. We love the city, the people , the gorgeous apartment and our new precious friend, Sophie!

A fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

Wy wife and I, along with another couple, visited Sophie and this apartment for five days in May of 2016; we were all extremely pleased! We have rented VRBO across Europe along with the US and have yet to be disappointed with this location not breaking our streak! Of the four VRBO's we rented on our trip to Europe this was the only one that not only had an elevator but had a wonderful marriage of both 'old' and 'new'.

The location was less than a five minute walk from the central square and comes with a handy secure parking spot (if you have spent much time driving in Europe you will understand how this is a perk!).

Perhaps one of the key components for travellers is the communication between traveller and destination; in this case Sophie was 100% wonderful! She was timely in all things (replies, meeting and exit) and even went so far as to print some tickets we had purchased on-line for an attraction at our next city!

We would go back again in an instant!

First rate rental

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our four nights in this apartment thoroughly. The accommodations are first class, and the location close to all the attractions of Brugge. Well stocked, and modern, kitchen, comfortable bed, clean and functional bathroom. The tower is more novelty than really useful, but provided a fun talking point with friends and family. Very attentive service from the contact - fast reply to any and all emails both prior to and during our stay. Finally, parking right at the building was so convenient.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great time in Bruges in our home away from home. The convenience of having your own private car port is nice to have in a city like Bruges.
