With the exception of the basement Zuid42 is completely available as holiday home for a party of up to 6 adults (+1 baby in a cod). The interior is inviting and practical with comfortable beds and nice detailing. The area is beautiful and lively with museums, fine dining and streetfood, bars, shops, playgardens and in close proximity to public transport.

The Coquilhatstraat is a straight street which is part of the original allotment of 1875 of this part of town. The street is situated between the Zwijger- and the Verbondstraat and is seperated by the De Vrièrestraat. Historically the name of the street was Vaderlandstraat but was renamed in 1891 after Aimé Coquilhat (1853-1891) who was vice governor of the former Belgian colony.

The Coquilhatstraat has the typical profile of a street at ‘the Zuid’, with a construction of late 19th century neoclassical cornices alternated with brick gables and with a monumental building as eyecatcher (source: inventaris onroerenderfgoed).
