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.

location, character and so much more!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the character and felt right at home within minutes!! We thought it looked great online and once inside our expectations were exceeded. Well worth the money. As a family of 4 proximity was key and we could easily walk to the center market square and surrounding areas. Our only dissapointment was that we were only there for 4 days and could easily have stayed for another 4 to see everything!!!

One of the coolest places we've ever stayed

  • 5 of 5

We love to travel, and have rented from VRBO all over the world. This penthouse is amazing – comfortable and luxurious, and such a great location. The combination of beautifully-renovated historical building with high-end modern amenities could not be more stunning. There are a lot of little touches that delight – a soft blanket thrown over the couch, just the right spices in the kitchen, interesting movies in the bookcase. The wall of windows in the living room provided the best view of the city we saw anywhere. And our 12-year old son couldn’t get over how cool it was to stay in a place with a medieval tower.

We stayed for a week, and loved the location, as well – a 5-minute walk out the door for fresh croissants, or to the town square, but far enough away from the tourist bustle. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the ability to prepare lunch (or cocktails and dinner) on the deck was excellent – nothing could beat the sunset over the city as we enjoyed a glass of wine.

We rented bikes and hired a guide – highly recommended, provides a completely different side of the city than you’d get anywhere else – as well as biked along the river to Damme for lunch. The secure/private parking for cars and bikes made it easy for us to store our bikes overnight.

The owners provide a book of very helpful information and suggestions, and Julie went out of her way to ensure that everything was perfect – greeting us at the apartment to show us around, answering questions, providing great ideas.

We can’t wait to come back.

Perfect location in Bruges

  • 5 of 5

This apartment exceeded our expectations. The building and tower are just beautiful. So close to everything. The views are amazing from the living room, and then the tower views are simply spectacular. Master bedroom and bath were really comfortable and luxurious, especially the heated floor in the bathroom. You can walk everywhere from here, and restaurants are just around the corner. A great home base for a vacation in Bruges.

Owner's Response: Jeff, Thanks for your nice review. We are glad you enjoyed our home away from home where we stay ourselves at least 4 weeks out of the year. We think when you are away from home it should exceed what you are comfortable with in your daily life to make your experience exceptional. Glad we were able to offer this.
