“Great place to explore Bruges”
Reviewed 4 June 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The house is very well kept and in a great location to explore the city. The house easily accommodated 4 people and was very private and quiet. Check in and out was easy. We would have liked a few fans when the weather unexpectedly reached over 90F but when the only trouble is that the weather was unseasonably nice it's hard to complain.

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

person found this review helpful

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.

Opaal holiday house is the perfect place to stay to enjoy the many wonders of Bruges.

“Exactly as it should be.”

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.
