“Comfortable apartment in great location”
Reviewed January 5, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Martine's apartment is in a great location , close to the centre, supermarkets and public transport.
It is comfortable, very clean,with a well equipped kitchen, warm and quiet.
Martine is very helpful with advice and good communication.

My only slight disappointment is with that the hot water system for showers only heats at night - so on arrival - no hot water until morning and if you use it all in the morning ( which we 3 did everyday ) that's it .
Also there is no washing machine -although the laundromat is very close by .

Martine does inform you on those above issues when she briefs you on arrival .

Overall we really enjoyed our stay in Bruges - gorgeous city and did a day trip to Gent and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Martine's apartment.

Thank you, Fran. It is good to read that you enjoyed your stay in my house and in Bruges. I am sorry that you felt short of hot water in the bathroom. A well insulated 200 litres boiler heats the water during the night to 65°C/149°F: this allows eight five-minute showers at 38°C/100°F. After departure of previous guests the same morning, I always switch on the boiler during the day until arrival of next guests to make sure hot water is available, although that time span may be a little short to heat the entire water mass until its maximum temperature.

“A Christmas time to remember”
Reviewed December 27, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Opaal holiday house is the perfect place to stay to enjoy the many wonders of Bruges.
Martine is the perfect host.
Recommend hiring bikes to see some of the surroundings beyond the old town!

The perfect little house, on the most perfect little street. It is exactly where it should be for any traveller to get to where they want to in bruges. It was clean and well equiped for our stay, and is literally a minute away from the most perfect little bakery. Martine was nothing but a delight as well, really did make us feel most welcome upon arrival, especially after our eight hours of travel from the uk.

Lovely house which we have stayed in before. Central - very easy to walk everywhere. New beds meant a very good nights sleep for all.

“Great holiday house!”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed for 4 nights in Bruges over my partners birthday. The house had everything needed for a comfortable stay. The house is in a great location, only 5 minutes walk from the town. On the way into town there are a couple of excellent bars with all the beers you need.
Martine was a wonderful host, the house was exactly as described. The whole experience was excellent.
Would highly recommend.
