And here are some of the comments direct from just a few of our guests!
'We stayed in the second floor apartment on two separate occasions for a total of seven days during our month-long stay in Spain. We are a family of five (kids aged 22, 21 and 20), and we were all comfortable there. Not only was the apartment spotless, but the kitchen was well-stocked with cookware. We were pleased with the large selection of restaurants in the area (we liked Soria right up the street). A bakery on the corner supplied us with fresh bread, and a supermarket just a few blocks down was perfect for the balance of our grocery needs. Another big plus was the proximity to the museums and to Retiro Park. We also walked to Sol on many occasions, however, the metro is conveniently located just two blocks away and is easily accessed for those of you who choose not to go on foot. Suzanne and Santiago were conscientious and helpful, returning emails promptly and answering all of our concerns. By the end of our seven days here, we were sad to leave! We will definitely stay again if we ever return to Madrid!' (USA)

Suzanne and Santiago
Both Santiago and I love to travel and explore new places. We know that finding the right location and space and the right owners are essential to a great experience. Not only do we enjoy helping our guests to gather information for their stay, i.e. sending monthly newsletters, but we like to think that we are your 'family ' while in town for whatever you might need to make your your stay a memorable one!!
Santiago's parents bought their first Madrid apartment here 35 years ago. Santiago and I lived here with our two small children until 6 years ago. This is 'my' neighborhood, so much so, we bought the unit adjacent to my in laws when it went up for sale a few years back! Great location, 'real' neighborhood experience and in the center of Madrid on a tree lined, no thru street!
