The house is unique and special because of its architecture. It makes a statement in itself as being different. It is just a place where you walk in and open your mouth immediately.

Welcome Beyond is proud to announce that Shelter 7 in Ghent, Belgium, has joined its website of truly memorable holiday rentals worldwide.
Shelter 7 is an intimate three-level city apartment located in the old town of Ghent, Belgium. Its 95 square meters function as a rental apartment as well as an exhibition space in which some of the vintage designer furniture is for sale. Contemporary art pieces mix with authentic elements like the winding staircase and the wooden floor. Interior architect Frederic Hooft selected the vintage and designer furniture giving each of the apartment’s levels an inspiring touch. “The apartment is filled with names such as Van Severen, Joe Colombo or Arne Jacobson. Every three months, we change something, a new sofa, a new table, a new chair. I think it’s important to do that and see it as your own house. The personal touch and details I find very important,” owner Stephanie describes.
Shelter 7 sleeps up to three people and is available to rent on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. The atmosphere reminds a bit of a mountain cabin: a quiet home with a fireplace and rustic materials like stone, concrete and wood, and a delicious and freshly prepared breakfast delivered to the door. There is a big terrace which is perfect to have dinner on cozy summer nights and the view from the third floor bedroom overlooks three of Ghent’s most famous sights: Belford, Sint Baafs and Sint Niklaas Cathedral.
Perfectly located in the historical centre of Ghent, everything is easily reachable on foot: the Design Museum, the shopping area as well as incredible sights like the Patershol and the streets Graslei and Korenlei. The city of Ghent is achingly beautiful, full of imposing churches and houses rich in history, and is best explored on a guided boat trip with an occasional stop at one of the many coffee shops and restaurants offering traditional Belgian cuisine.
