Freddy has been very kind with us, we had everything we needed. We didn't talk that much, as we stayed only for one night and had to leave early the next morning, but Freddy has been very generous and helpful. It was a calm and peaceful stay. I would recommand if you don't want to be in the agitation of the city.
Our stay at Freddy's house was exactly what we needed. As he lives a bit outside of Antwerp, it was as calm as we needed. But if you're looking for a place in the center, it may be not the best choice for us. Though, we can easily reach the center by bus.
