“Lovely house in a great convenient location”
Reviewed 2 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This house is pretty unique, the decor is at the same time amusing, moving and intriguing.
The owner was very helpful, letting us arrive earlier and giving us excellent directions. The house is very well equipped, there is free parking within 5 minutes walk and the centre of Ypres is literally just round the corner. However in the house is very quiet.

“Beautifully furnished, equiped and decorated.”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This house is full of interesting and unusual items. The house is furnished and equipped to a high standard. It was very clean throughout. The owners were very helpful and waiting for us on arrival. There were lots of extra touches which made a short stay much easier such as teabags, filter coffee, dishwasher tablets, oil, vinegar, kitchen paper and a complementary Belgian beer etc. The house is also ideally located very near to the central square but on a quiet street. The only issues that may make the house less suitable for certain groups were that the only bathroom is downstairs behind the kitchen at the back of the house, the second floor bedroom can only be accessed by going through one of the first floor bedrooms and both steps of stairs are very steep with a lot of small steps. We travelled with my elderly father for whom making a trip to the toilet in the night was very difficult. However for some groups these issues would not be a problem.

“Perfect place to stay in Ypres”

person found this review helpful

Everything about this house was perfect and exactly as described in the listing. The house is conveniently located a short walk from the Cloth Hall and the town square. It is fully equipped with modern appliances and a full kitchen and tastefully decorated with antiques. It was perfect in every detail. I highly recommend it.

“Lovely accomodation within a few minutes of ypres centre”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The house was a typical Ypres town house full of intriguing ornaments, pictures and furniture. It was very well equipped. lots of crockery and utensils so you didn't have to wash up after every meal and a dishwasher if you did let the washing up pile up. Heidi was unable to meet us on our arrival but we received a generous welcome by her stand ins. The house was great for our extended family; daughter and grand children and the closeness to Ypres town centre and its World War 1 sites was just ideal for us and we were able to drive to others places with ease.

“Great location in Ypers and great house!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The house is in the perfect location and within a short walk of the Flanders Field Museum, Cathedral, restaurants, and shops. The house is fabulously decorated with antiques (I am so jealous!) and supplied with everything you would need to cook. Jurgen and Heidi were very helpful and gracious hosts. Would definitely recommend if coming to Ypers. Would just say that the stairs are very steep and narrow as this is an older house (but completely redone) so caution to those who have mobility problems; our little children and parents did well though!
