“Fantastic Property, Fantastic Location”

person found this review helpful

I stayed at Abacus House with my husband, children and their grandparents. The property is absolutely beautiful with a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge, gorgeous bedrooms and possibly the largest and best bathrooms EVER! There is also a lovely patio area and sun lounge.

We had a fantastic week here and would recommend it highly. There are great restaurants and bars just a few minutes walk away. There is also plenty of free parking in the streets surrounding the property.

The cathedral, Cloth Hall and Menin Gate are all only a few minutes walk away. I recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit Ypres - fantastic!

“Wow! Fabulous house in beautiful Ypres”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Having stayed in many holiday lets over the years this house has to be the best I have ever stayed in. Johan and Christine have renovated a Belgian townhouse into a beautiful modern and attractive place while staying true to the character of the place. The photos do not justice to the property. Rooms are big and tastefully laid out. The bathrooms with walk in closets are amazing and I want one for my own house. The kitchen is so modern, light and functional. The walled garden with the funky lighting is fab. The property is ideally situated for Ypres with the Menin Gate less than a five minute walk away. Bars and restaurants within waking distance also. Fantastic location for exploring the area with easy parking. Book early as this property is going to be much in demand. Thank you Johan and Christine.

“Lovely house in an excellent location with very helpful owners.”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I stayed at this property for 3 nights at the end of June/early July 2013 with my partner and our 2 teenagers. We all found the house extremely well equipped, clean & comfortable with an excellent location near the centre of Ypres. The owners are very helpful and made us all feel most welcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property. Thank you Johan & Christine!

“Fantastic place to stay, clean, spacious and very well equiped”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Abacus House was a wonderful place to stay. A home away from home with all the amenities to make a holiday very pleasant. Plenty of rooms and three bathrooms, great Kitchen and outdoor area. Close to the Market square and shops, Restaurants, etc etc. Ypres is a lovely place and well worth a visit. Johan provides plenty of tourist information and a warm welcome. I thoroughly recommend a stay here will not disappoint.

“Excellent House - Perfect Location”
Reviewed 29 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Only a 2-3 minute stroll from the Main Market Square in Ypres and Menin Gate. Plenty of good restaurants and bars nearby.
We were a party of 4 adults and 3 children and feel really fortunate to have found this house. It is well equipped and finished to a good standard: kitchen, bathrooms, games/music room. All bed linen and towels were of good quality and all the rooms were very clean and comfortable.
The house had a lovely homely feel.
Conveniently located to explore Ypres and the surrounding area - we would definitely recommend it to friends and family.
Johan and Christine thank you.
