I bought the property 22 years ago and renovated. I have tried to preserve the typical art deco elements, which gives the house a atmospheric character. My guests have a private room and can enjoy the garden ... As a real Gentenaar I tell you the hidden side of our city ... be sure it's not in the books!

Ikzelf heb de woning 22 jaar geleden gekocht en gerenoveerd. Ik heb getracht de typische art-deco elementen te bewaren, wat aan het huis een sfeervol karakter geeft. Mijn gasten beschikken over een privé-kamer en kunnen genieten van de tuin ... Als echte Gentenaar vertel ik je de verborgen kantjes van onze stad ... wees maar zeker dat staat niet in de boekjes!

The space

Airbnb asks what makes the space so unique. I did not answer this question immediately. Of course I think the room is beautiful and original otherwise I would not offer it to my guests. I listened to my guests, what they found "unique" and so I came to an answer. The cosiness that radiates the room, space, rest. Garden view. How I had done everything for them, the bathroom with fresh towels, shampoo, shower gel. On arrival the chocolates, fresh water or a hot cup soup on a rainy day ... What I often read in reviews is that my guests appreciate that I respect their privacy. A number of guests gave me the tip instead of 1 night table, 2 night tables. Rightly so Every Sunday morning it's in Ghent 'Flea Market', where you'll find nice old stuff ... looking for a 30's night table. All tips are welcome :)

Airbnb vraagt wat 'de ruimte' zo uniek maakt. Ik heb deze vraag niet onmiddellijk beantwoord. Natuurlijk vind ik de kamer mooi en origineel anders zou ik het niet aanbieden aan mijn gasten. Ik heb geluisterd naar mijn gasten, wat vonden zij 'uniek' en zo ben ik tot een antwoord gekomen. De gezelligheid die de kamer uitstraalt, ruimte, rust. Uitzicht op de tuin. Hoe ik alles had klaargemaakt voor hen, de badkamer met verse handdoeken, shampoo, douchegel. Bij aankomst de chocolaatjes, fris water of een warme kop soep op een regenachtige dag... Wat ik ook dikwijls las in reviews is dat mijn gasten het appreciëren dat ik hun privacy respecteer.
Een aantal gasten hebben mij de tip gegeven ipv 1 nachttafeltje, 2 nachttafeltjes te voorzien. Terecht. Elke zondagochtend is het in Gent 'Vlooienmarkt', daar vind je leuke, oude spulletjes ... op zoek naar een jaren 30 nachttafeltje. Alle tips zijn welkom :)

Guest access

When I'm home, my guests are always welcome to our private area. In the summer, have breakfast in the garden or at the pond reading a book. In the winter around the stove with a good glass of wine or a Belgian beer.

Als ik thuis ben zijn mijn gasten altijd welkom in ons privé-gedeelte. In de zomer ontbijten in de tuin of 's avonds bij de vijver een boek lezen. 's Winters rond de kachel met een goed glas wijn of een Belgisch bier.

Interaction with guests

By telephone or via the airbnb mail, I am always available. I consciously choose that. Guests in my home are given an engagement. And then I want 100% for them too.

Telefonisch of via de airbnb mail ben ik altijd beschikbaar. Daar kies ik bewust voor. Gasten in mijn huis ontvangen is een engagement. En dan wil ik er ook 100% staan voor hen.

Other things to note

The rental price includes all costs except the tourist tax. The City of Ghent asks for 2.83 euros per person per night. I register this in a register that my guests can always look into. My accommodations have been approved by the Tourism Flanders Service. This means that it is completely in order for fire safety, insurance. Not only on paper, people of the Tourism Flanders Service have also been on the spot.

Katia is a wonderful person. She took very good care and made sure to have everything I needed and more! She has a good idea of how to ensure people space and comfort. The place is in a good neighbourhood with public transportation close by. It was very easy for me to understand and get around. I would highly recommend Katia's place! Much respect and love... would visit again

Clean, beautiful, and cozy; Katia's home was lovely. It's only a short drive to the city center, 30 mins from Bruges, and 40 mins from Brussels and Antwerp. Her home was perfect for our stay. Thank you Katia for being such a great host :)

I stayed here for a couple of nights with my husband while I attended a work training. Katia was very accommodating; a very nice host. Her place was very beautiful. Walking distance to the city centre (about 30 mins), but very convenient train connection to St Peter's less than 5 mins away. The place was perfect for our purpose.

Katia's place is beautifully furnished and decorated. The living environment is peaceful and quiet. All facilities are clean and in good condition! The room is spacious and comfortable. The house is situated 2 mins (on foot) away from a supermarket and train station. A tram to the city center takes 20 mins (including the walk to the tram stop). Walking to the city center takes 40 mins. Katia is a lovely and hospitable host! I would recommend this place to other travellers :)
