“Vincent flat is on 3 floors – living room/ Lounge kitchen then shower/ toilet outside terrace and the top floor is the bedroom. The space is very spacious and cosy with some beautiful decorations. It s perfect for a short weekend in Ghent. The main staircase is amazing made of beautiful Wood the flat is warm and very welcoming. Vincent was a great host”


“This truly is a magical place! If you’re looking for something different, something exiting, something inspirational and something terribly beautiful then please don’t hesitate to book this place. Everything has been thought about carefully. The sound system was probably my favorite attribute to this place. The acoustics in the house were just amazing! Even Vincents playlist was a real treat to listen to! This house has everything you need and so much more. Although right in the middle of town, you’ll be surprised by the serenity of this place. I can go on and on about this stunning airbnb and about Vincent who was the absolute best host, but im gonna stop here and just say.. be prepared to be amazed and enjoy!”


“This place is the opposite of getting catfished. A truly amazing and beautiful escape with so much care for detail and charm”


“Stunning place, perfect location and great host. This place is amazing!!!”


“Loft by Vincent is a unique place. Peaceful and beautifully designed. An oasis of peace in the city center.”


“Vincent’s Airbnb was even better than expected. The house is charming and full of character, a very unique experience. Highly recommended for a cosy weekend away in the middle of beautiful Ghent city centre.”


“Amazing house, perfectly located in the centre of Gent! I definitely recommend this place and will come back for other occasions.”


“A really lovely, restful hideaway in the perfect location.”


“Highly, highly recommend! Besides all the objectively amazing features of this place (amazing location & all utilities present) we were blown away by the actual experience of this stay. Every tiny little detail is taken care of and caries a story. We had a truly wonderful stay thanks to a very thoughtful host Vincent.”


“This unique place is probably the most unique Airbnb we visited in years. In the very center of Ghent you’ll feel like in a peaceful Asian style house. Very stylish, full of details, wood and proper stone and unique floor in the main room to discover !!! Each objet tells its own story. There light was nice in early automn morning. I particularly love the helicoidal type stairs. Our host was helpful helping us to park nearby and access by car to the center town.”


“We had an amazing stay in this architecturally beautiful space. With it’s mindful touches and serene atmosphere, we both felt very relaxed. Highly Recommended for a chilled stay in gorgeous Ghent!”


“Vincent’s apartment is an experience in itself, unconventional, stylish and has everything you need to relax and unwind. I enjoyed using their yoga mat for my morning practice, with a view to the lovely terrace and listen to music on the sound system. The kitchen is small, but has everything you need to cook a breakfast or a light dinner. My host, Vincent, was kind enough to take me to the airport in Eindhoven, so I had a personal driver and a pleasant conversation as well.”


“Very clean and cozy appartement!”


“At the very center of Gent, a very nice place with the best vibes to visit the city. Vincent is a perfect host. A very good place to rest. Bed is very comfortable. Trendy Airbnb! 100% recommended. You can even listen to music from a very good vintage hifi system!”


“This is a special place with tons of unique design elements. It’s on three floors: the living on the ground floor, the toilet on the second (with an outdoor terrace and yoga mat/zen meditation pillow) and a bedroom on the top, loft floor. Vincent is an enthusiastic and helpful host. If you are in to unusual and high-end teas and coffee, he has you covered. We had our 6-month old baby with us so the 3-floor set up was a challenge. I wouldn’t recommend it for new parents but it would be restful and fun as a single person or a couple. The location is dynamite because it’s in the middle of the historic center but on a quaint side street.”


“Fantastic apartment, extremely good value and excellent host! We were wowed the minute we walked up the spiral staircase-the pictures do not do it justice! We loved our stay in beautiful Gent, having travelled from Amsterdam to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Vincent was informative, helpful and friendly-highly recommend the cocktails at his bar round the corner :))”


“Beautiful apartment with a very special and nice design. Perfect located – we could explore Gent by Feet. The communication with Vincent was perfect, we got very good recommendations to explore nice places and restaurants. Don‘t miss to visit him at his cocktail-bar Flagent – best cocktails ever with love for detail and ambiente (like the apartment) 🙂 We had a wonderful time in Gent and will come back!”


“WOW! What a place, we were blown away when we walked into this place, beautifully designed and the little touches made our stay very special. We had our 3 year old son with us. Although its not the perfect stay for kids due to all the beautiful ornaments, we had no problems and he loved the little single bed next to ours that is tucked away like a den. The location was fantastic and Vincent is a true host, he made us feel very very welcome and provided lots of local advice, he also makes great drinks!”


“Shelter 7 will very likely be the most beautiful airbnb we ever stay in. Design on point but still cosy is a rare combination to find. It’s located in the very center of the historic city but still the only things you hear from of the city is the wonderful bells from church. We really found relaxation in this apartment. Plus Vincent is a nice host who makes your stay as smooth as possible.”


“We booked this place for the speakers of an event we’re organising. The communication with Vincent was super-smooth and he was very flexible. Our speakers were very impressed with the B&B and Vincent’s hospitality.”


“Vincents charm and hospitality warmed our hearts! He was very generous with his time when showing us around his apartment which is top quality and very comfortable. The flat itself is a beautiful tranquil space with well thoughtout lighting within the unique architecture of the building. Do not fear about this bed not being comfortable – it’s insanely so! We can’t fault anything about our stay in Shelter 7, we loved it. Thank you Vincent”


“The apartment is bigger than it looks in the pics, though be aware that the single bed has very reduced head height. It’s a great relaxing space and perfect to chill in, shame the weather was a bit chilly for the terrace! The location is central which is great and Vincent is a very attentive host.”


“Shelter 7 is well located and right in the center of Gent. The place is cozy, well decorated and clean. Vincent was very friendly and helpful.”


“I can only recommend this place to stay while in Ghent. Not only Vincent was a great host and took a great deal to make sure I was comfortable and feeling at home, but the place is outstanding and put together with great thought and care. The apartment is at the heart of Ghent and at walking distance of key locations, and surrounded by great spots for food and drinks. Vincent also offers mediation experiences which I will surely book next time i am back. Thanks again!”


“Exactement ce qu’on recherche quand on part de chez nous : authenticité , propreté et dépaysement. On a adoré la gentillesse et le goût de décoration de Vincent. On reviendra for sur !!”


“Merveilleux havre de paix en plein centre de Gand. Accueil généreux et attentionné. Petite terrasse embaumée du parfum de glycine. On recommande chaudement!!”


“Toplocatie ! aanrader”


“We hadden een heerlijk verblijf in Shelter 7, een unieke plek in het hartje van Gent. De woning is met veel smaak en karakter ingericht. En er werd aandacht besteed aan elk detail. Vincent bleek ook de perfecte gastheer.”


“Het perfecte adres voor een escapisme uit het drukke Brussel. Mysterieus, rustgevend en creatief. Zelfs de houtgeur in het verblijf doet je wegdromen. Een echte aanrader om tot rust te komen, geestelijk en spiritueel.”


“Hôte au top, dispo et réactif ! Lieu original et minimaliste, très graphique !”

“hôte très sympathique et flexible, endroit assez unique”


“Een aanrader voor wie op zoek is naar een rustgevende ervaring in het centrum van Gent!”


“Geweldige plek op een geweldige locatie. Vincent zorgde voor een fijn ontvangst waardoor het weekend direct goed begon. De vloer in de slaapkamer is even wennen maar dat doet niets af aan de sfeer in de shelter.”



“Unieke accommodatie in hartje Gent. We hadden er een geweldige tijd!”


“Geweldige gastvrijheid in B&B Shelter 7. Een fantastisch pand in het midden van de stad Gent. Heel stijlvol ingericht en voorzien van leuke leesplekjes. Wij vonden de afstandbediening voor de sfeerverlichting in alle ruimtes en de muziekinstallatie echt een meerwaarde. We voelden ons meteen thuis. De cold-brewed-tea, de muziek, de vloer in de slaapkamer; allemaal leuke en grensverleggende ontdekkingen. Tip, bezoek zeker Vincents cocktailbar ‘Flagent’ op 5 minuten wandelen van de B&B met leuk uitzicht op het water, verzorgde hapjes en heerlijke cocktails met een twist.”


“Een absolute aanrader dit appartement in het hart van Gent! Bij aankomst werden we ontvangen door Vincent en een zelfgemaakte cold-brew. Hierna volgde een uitgebreide rondleiding door het huis dat er werkelijk fantastisch uitzag. Het is voorzien van enkele knusse zithoekjes, een heerlijk balkon en een unieke slaapkamer. Toen wij er verbleven was het erg warm (misschien wel de warmste dag van het jaar) en aangezien we op de zolderverdieping verbleven en er ook weinig wind stond was dit eigenlijk niet te doen. Vincent was nog zo attent geweest om een ventilator neer te zetten, maar ook daarmee bleef het een bijzonder warme nacht. Dit is wel iets om rekening mee te houden bij het boeken… Verder niets dan lof voor het appartement en de gastheer, we zijn zeer te spreken over ons verblijf.”


“Heel erg genoten in dit stijlvolle en rustige appartement!”


“Hermoso con un estilo impecable y en pleno centro histórico de Gent”


“Lieu très original (encore mieux que ce qu’on voit sur les photos). Vincent est hyper accueillant, disponible et attentionné. Il a de bons conseils et d’autres adresses à faire découvrir. Le logement est bien équipé, bien situé et très stylé avec bon goût.”


“Top! Merci :)”


“Coole plek in hartje Gent. Ideaal om de stad te verkennen als een local”


“Waar voor geld en goede locatie dichtbij het centrum.”
