- Very Good
The place was very clean and the beds and pillows were comfortable. It was a really nice place. The location was perfect for sightseeing, restaurants and pubs. No problems at all!
Response from the owner Thanks for the nice words.
“Bruges was beautiful”
We travelled to Bruges by car from the UK as a party of eight, two families of Mum, Dad and two children per family. Parking the car was about a fifteen minute walk away from the property, which as the weather was dry was not a problem. The house was very warm which was most welcome as the weather was literally freezing.The house itself is large with two bathrooms upstairs. You would need to walk through one of the double bedrooms to reach one of them, as a previous reviewer stated, lending itself well for a rental for two families. (not sure if it would be suitable for four couples though) Joost & Catherine were very helpful and came quickly to our aid when we had a problem using the electric hob. (my fault as I use gas at home) I have to say that the house could use a massive dose of TLC, the kitchen is very tired with cracked and chipped cups in the cupboard. We found a bag of potatoes in one cupboard which had obviously been there for quite some time. The whole place really needed a deep clean (thank goodness for the dishwasher) and a lick of paint. Having said that, the beds and bedding were clean. Unfortunately we also found mice upstairs, which we had to keep secret from the children or the mini break would have become a micro break! The house is situated just a short stroll from the centre of Bruges and the Ribs and Beer restaurant is just around the corner (the best ribs I have ever tasted). There is plenty to see and do and we really did love the town. Sending payment for the house rental was easy and the deposit was returned to us promptly upon our return to the UK. Despite the negatives stated above, we had a lovely time, but probably not return to this property.
Response from the owner If you want to park the car for free it's 15 minutes walking. If you want to pay it's just around the corner, less than 5 minutes.
Bruges is a most beautifully preserved medieval city that can only be done justice by exploring on foot. Catherine's house is in the most perfect position for doing this, right in the heart and just a short stroll from all the major sights. The house is old and adds to the authenticity of the experience, but has been completely renovated internally for extremely comfortable living. It is close to great restaurants, shops and bars, but has the advantage of being in a quiet street with very little traffic. We are now planning our return visit. Ps Whilst there, the BBC were starting to film a new 10 part epic costume drama, The White Queen, set in the 15th century and due for showing late 2013: look out for it.
Response from the owner Thanks, we are looking forward to welcome you again.
“Excellence in Brugge”
We stayed at Catherine's apartment in Brugge not long ago, and I must say that we were more than satisfied. The apartment is large with lots of room for several people. It's location is on a quiet street within a short walk to the central market. Catherine was a pleasure and was quick to respond when we had questions. I have stayed at many different locations over the past several years, and would place Catherine's apartment as one of the best. Johnny Burks, United States

“Perfect in every way!”
Myself and 8 other friends, all aged between 30-40 stayed at Catherine's beautiful big house for a weekend to explore Bruges. We could not recommend it more! We all had such a fabulous time, and Catherine could not have been any more accommodating. It was clean, spacious, plenty of wardrobe space, super comfortable beds and excellently located. It has so much character and is a mix match of old and new. It's stylishly decorated too. The 5th bedroom was in the dining room attached to the kitchen with no door which we didn't like so some people shared upstairs. For families; this wouldn't be a problem at all. There a 2 good sized bathrooms both with lovely, hot showers. The stairs are very steep, so it might not be so suitable for somebody with mobility problems but we found them to be fine. All the linen was fresh, and towels were provided too. The bedrooms are all well sized, and the one at the front of the house is huge! Outside there is a seating area that is not overlooked by anyone (the house at the back is derelict). The kitchen was really well equipped and had a lot of the basics in there for us to use. For anything that wasn't there, there is a Carte Fore supermarket a 5-10 minute walk away where we stocked up on milk, eggs, bread etc. Before we arrived I worried that there may not be enough keys for everyone in our party to come and go as they please, but this was not a problem as access to the house is done via a code system into a computer that operates the door. Location wise, it's all pretty much all there on your doorstep! It takes less than 10 minutes to get to the main square where the Belfry Tower is situated, and everything branches off from there really depending on what direction you want to head in. The house itself is situated on a really quiet street. This house is highly recommended, and we will definitely be coming to stay again! We had a brilliant weekend. Thankyou Catherine for your hospitality!
Response from the owner Thanks, we hope to welcome you again.
