“Convenient, quiet and well equipped”
Reviewed 4 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A lovely house with everything you could need, as long as you don't mind lots of steep stairs. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Abacus House and couldn't believe how central we were for everything, especially the Menin Gate for the Last Post ceremony each evening. The owner was charming and helpful, even tipping us off about the 'secret' car park over the road! The bathrooms are truly enormous - although our one criticism was the lack of provision of any soap on arrival. A minor detail but inconvenient to have to go out and buy some on arrival.

“Beautiful and quaint little house”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

What a beautiful house, Abacus House was all we hoped for and more. So many beautiful, original and quirky features, this house was the perfect place to stay. The house contained all we could have hoped for and more, every kitchen item you could possibly need, TV and games for if it rained and a very helpful information guide about the house and surrounding city. Johan could not have been more welcoming or helpful if he tried, he offered a downstairs bed to be made up for my disabled mother in law and even arranged our taxi from and back to Brussels airport. Whilst we did not need to call Johan during our trip it was so reassuring to know he was only a phone call away. I hope one day to return and stay here once more, a truely memorable and enjoyable stay.

“A beautiful House to stay in - in a 'must see' Town.”

Abacus House is a stunning property in a really beautiful town of many very fine buildings. The House is extremely spacious with shower rooms suitable for a football team and 'walk in' wardrobes in every room! The huge bedrooms are all extremely comfortable and we all slept well. It is not just spacious but is very well equipped too with all you need, it even has flat screen TV and WiFi with full Internet access. Johan, the owner, is a charming and friendly man for whom nothing is too much trouble. He helped us out with one or two problems without hesitation and with a smile! Our party consisted of five adults and two young children and all of us enjoyed our stay immensely. If you ever want a trip to Belgium, for whatever reason, this is a great place to stay, having good access to all of the places of interest.

“Fantastic Property, Fantastic Location”

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.
