Our sunny & spacious flat is situated in the charming neighborhood of Ixelles/St Gilles. This European apartment maintains many of it's historic details and is conveniently located next to 3 trams and 2 buses. About 15 min from city center!
The apartment is classically European with heigh ceilings, crown moldings, and floor to ceiling windows. There are three doors that lead onto a wrap around balcony that is wonderful for sitting outside with a glass of wine or just a quick cigarette. It is also very spacious and our bedroom is on the other side of the apartment from your room, with the dining room and sitting room in the middle. We've been collecting our decor from all over the world and for a few years- so there is a lot of character!
**Please note that our cat Soleil (also known as "monkey") will be here during your stay. She is very curious and friendly- so don't be surprised if she ends up on your lap or following you around!
You will have access to the entire apartment, except for our bedroom of course. There is one bathroom we will share- but the toilet and shower/bathroom are separate- so that is helpful! Please, make yourself at home!
Clean sheets and towels, along with shampoo/conditioner/soap, will be provided and you are free to use refrigerator and pantry space, as well as desk space should you need that. You can also use the washer and drying racks if you need them.
Typically I leave bread for toast and oatmeal, etc. Not exactly breakfast, but it will tide you over in the morning.
Interazione con gli ospiti
One of us will be here to check you in and help you with anything you need. We are both really busy with work and graduate school, so we will be in the apartment off and on. We are happy to interact, but the level of interaction will depend on our schedules from week to week. We are happy to let you do your thing and have your space!
Please do not bring any guests not part of the Air Bnb reservation back to the apartment. I am very cautious about who I rent the apartment to, as everything inside is very valuable to me. I also have neighbors to respect and cannot have a lot of noise and loud gatherings in my home and ask that my guests not do it either. Just please respect the space and the building while you are here. :)
Please don't smoke inside the apartment! You can smoke on either of the balconies though.
The house is not exactly young kid-friendly (I have lots of fragile items that are meaningful to me), there are sharp edges and loose items.
