This superb apartment comes with all the details you can imagine

This is a surprise and not always possible, and don't usually appear in the reviews made by guests, by owners request not to make it a duty.

This 80 square m (900 sq ft) two bedroom and one bathroom apartment is decorated with the best pieces, and located at the Barcelona 21st century Front Marítim-Diagonal Mar Quarter, in an astonishing building designed by famous architect Ricardo Bofill.

Where elegance meets contemporary, in front of the mediterranean: that would be the best way to define the Sea Elegance Barcelona apartment.

You can feel the quality in each of the apartment details, with antiques coming from Barcelona, the Pyrenees, Germany and Morocco combined with design contemporary pieces.

The quality of the antiques and contemporary furniture , the Sony ES series HI-FI system with B&W loudspeakers and a wide collection of CD that you can play during your stay, that no way can be found in any rental apartment, the charming terrace with garden and sea views, the high quality electrical installation with several independent lighting modes for a more relaxing ambientation, makes this apartment a unique piece in the Barcelona beach.

Excellent accueil et situation idéale

  • 5 of 5

J'avais d'abord choisi cet appartement pour notre séjour à Barcelone pour sa situation qui me paraissait idéale, un peu en dehors de la ville, près de la mer et près des transports en commun ainsi que pour son concept "presque tout inclus" qui m'évitait de devoir m'occuper de détails et qui nous garantissait une place de parking privée. Nous n'avons pas été déçu. Tout est tel que décrit par notre hôte qui, en prime, n'a pas hésité à nous donner de son temps pour nous conseiller dans l'organisation de notre séjour. Quoi de mieux que de recevoir de précieux conseils d'un Barcelonais!! L'appartement est fonctionnel dès l'arrivée et l'hôte est très réceptif aux besoins des ses visiteurs. Merci d'avoir contribué au bon déroulement de notre séjour.

Beautiful apartment on the beach of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Even before we arrived at this beautiful apartment my experience with David was fantastic. I frequently rent through VRBO in the US and hadn't had as much pre-communication and helpful insights from an owner than I had with David. He took time to respond to my emails and provide suggestions for site seeing, restaurants, things to do with kids, etc.

Upon arrival in Barcelona David personally met us and spent considerable time orienting us to the city and the neighborhood, along with personally touring the apartment with us and ensuring we knew how to use the TV, washer and dryer (yes - he has a dryer!) dishwasher, etc. David even had groceries and wine for us since we arrived on Sunday and couldn't get to the market before they closed.

David made himself available to us throughout the week, responding immediately to emails and text to answer our questions, etc.

The apartment - oh the apartment - was gorgeous. Beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. The 2 bedrooms and pull-out sofa bed were ample room for 2 families traveling together. The large balcony patio outside the master bedroom/dining room doors looks onto a beautiful private garden and you can even see the sea! The Sea is a quick walk across the street for beach time or an afternoon stroll on the boardwalk.

Overall the experience renting from David was exceptional. We would highly recommend anyone looking for a comfortable, quiet apartment with quick and easy access to the beach and the city center to consider this apartment. We loved it!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

David's apartment is wonderful. Very tastefully decorated and very clean, as pictures show. Nice kitchen with all amenities, washer AND dryer big bonus. Location in quiet, though a bit far from city center, metro is 3 blocks away so we were not bothered by that. Market 3 blocks away has everything you need. There are a handful of restaurants within walking distance, unfortunately several were closed while we were there. Domo, right up the street was great for dinner. A couple of cafes right out the door for coffee and pastries. Close to beach, but we didn't spend any time there as it was still a bit cool.

David is a wonderful host and spends a lot of time with you going through the apt and explaining attractions around all of Barcelona, huge help, but be prepared if you are jet lagged, it is a lot of information. I would highly recommend David's place, we had a great time......Thank you!

Everything.....PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

We chose the apartment primarily because of the tasteful furnishing. It proved to be exactly like the photographs and spotlessly clean and tidy.

What we hadn’t bargained for, and which is quite the exception , is that the owner David provided everything that we might need for a comfortable stay. All the basics such as milk, fruit juice, butter, etc were in the refrigerator and there were two bottles of wine and a large bowl of fruit provided for us. Soaps, shampoo and even toothpaste were provided. Nothing was left to chance.

The owner, David could not have been more helpful. He supplied us with loads of information about places to viist, restaurants and how to get about the city. David is not only proud of his city but extremely knowledgeable about it’s history and architecture

.

The apartment was very easy to find, and located in a quiet part of the city, but less than a block back from the seafront promenade. A five minute walk took us to Selva de Mar Metro Station from where the city centre and the many attractions were reached in a matter of minutes and for the price of a 2.5 euro ticket. There was a well stocked supermarket less than five minutes away and the ‘Centro Commercial Diagonal Mar’, an enormous indoor shopping centre was just a ten minute walk away.

This proved to be the perfect choice for a place to stay in Barcelona and David went out of his way to make us welcome and ensure we enjoyed our stay.

Great Location Perfect Host

  • 5 of 5

I do not think it is possible to have a better host! David went way beyond the call of duty. We were provided with 2 bottles of wine, coffee, milk, bread, fruit, pastries, and all provisions for the entire apartment! The book he put together, for all things in and around Barcelona, is a self guided adventure. Points of interests, restaurants, with bus,subway schedules and stops. All possible maps. This location is near the beach with access to freeways. The location provides a safe, less crowded enviroment. Thank you David!! From the moment you met us and guided us to the apartment, we wanted for nothing. We enjoyed our time with you. Any one out there looking for a place will not be disappointed. If your real lucky, you may get David to spend an incredible day on a road trip. We had an outstanding time in two unique and awesome old towns, And a fabulous meal in out in the middle of no where restaurant.
