Cosy yet spacious and warmly decorated appartment on my house boat Aurelia Feria, where i live also with my 2 kids (co-parenting)

- a 15min walk to the city center and at 2min walk from the train station.

- ATTENTION: be aware,the airbnb is adjacent to my private living area. You have the airbnb space to yourself but the wall between the 2 parts is not accoustically isolated so for sound you are not completely private. You can not see each other, but you can hear sounds from the other side .

Le logement
you have a whole space of 60m2 to yourself, next to my private part of the boat.

Furthermore there is a spacious deck to enjoy the sun and views as well as a glass roof above the living area that opens to have a cool breeze or lots of natural light streaming in. It is exceptional for a houseboat to draw so much light in. In winter there is a cosy stove to keep your feet warm.

you can expect:
- a bath in front of a window looking out on the water, with possibility to shower if wanted.
- A basically equipped kitchen with oven, microwave, refrigerator and a cooking fire (2 hot plates)
- a very bright sitting area with design furniture and a hammock to stare at the sky through the glass roof, read a book, etc.
- 1 sleeping room with one double bed and the bath in the same room
- Seat in the living area that converts to a proper double bed with 2 (real) matrasses.
- Spacious terrace outside of 12m2 on the water
- Walking bridge that leads you safely to the entrance of the boathouse.
- Fireplace (wood only in winter) to spend cosy evenings around with friends or family
- no breakfast provided by the host, but the Ibis budget hotel is around the corner, at 20m where you can enjoy the breakfast buffet or make one yourself of course.
- Very peaceful and open surroundings, even when located very close to a big round point and busy traffic area, no noise. Very quiet to sleep.
- in the area there is the possibility to rent paddle boards, kayaks and you can follow the water for 2 km's north, arriving in the Captain Zeppos Parc that has a sand beach (!), playing area, tables to picknick, a very cosy summerbar etc. (Unfortunately swimming is forbidden, the quality of the water is not good enough)
- Be aware of the very open space the boat is located at, which always gives rougher weather conditions. Expect a pretty strong wind when it blows and due to the steel the boat is build of, stronger heat when it is very warm and sunny.
- Does the boat move while laying next to the quay? you must ask yourself. Well, inside you will not feel or see movement of the boat, unless it storms (very little, e.g. hanging lamp that moves). Or when a boat passing us goes too fast.

Où se situe le logement

Gand, Vlaanderen, Belgique

The boat is located at the entrance of the 'new docks' (Nieuwe Dokken), an area just next to the center where in the past this was an industrial area, operating over water.
This whole area (that used to be 'the old docks') has recently been developed (and still is) with areas to live, schools, open space, playground, beach, bars, cycling path, walking path, etc. New neighboorhood that due to Corona is now also being discovered by the Ghentians, for walking and cycling, and for water activities. It is still a quiet place so close to the city, train station and the ring of Ghent. But fun on the water (lots of kayaking, little boats, rubber boats, paddle boarding) is popular nowadays and it comes close, since you are also on the water ,-) and people are curious to see life on a boat.

The boat is next to a quay and a cycling path. There is no car road, only a simple road where residents can load and unload the car, as can you if you come with the car.

Unfortunately, being so close to the city center, there is no parking area for free, only paid parking places closeby (untill 7pm)

Hi, I am Lies and i live on the houseboat with my 2 children, Viggo and Raffi. They alternate between me and their dad every other week. I bought the Aurelia Feria end of 2017. It is a 'spits', used to be a cargo boat of 40 m long and was build end of the 60's. Since January 2020 the boat is back at its permanent own spot on the water after a thorough renovation. And my children as well as me are enjoying our new home to the fullest, even though it is not completely finished and I can not see, feel or smell paint anymore. The boat is also used for my coaching practice, to guide groups and individuals on their 'quest' to connection, with themselves, with others and with the world around them. Finally, I also wish to offer it to people all around the world to come and experience life on a boat and discover the fantastic city of Ghent, where I have been living for the last 20 years. Let me know what the space brings you or still needs to serve its purpose. For people who are interested in exploring themselves, a coaching session can also be arranged :-)
