Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 28, 2014

People tell me I have high expectations. This is one of the rare instances when they were exceeded. Lydia and her husband Alejandro out did themselves. The condo was spectacular when we arrived. Every aspect was perfect. After a long travel day is was like arriving at an oasis, hence the title. You truly only need to arrive with clothes and a toothbrush. It felt like a home you would own in Barcelona, nothing about it felt touristy. If I could rate higher than 5 stars I would have done so. Thank you so much Lydia and Alejandro for your hospitality! I have told everyone I know about my amazing stay. I cannot wait to return to experience more of your beautiful city. I wish you two the best!

Fantastic location, flat and landlord

We stayed at this flat for two weeks and I can't recommend it more highly. Lydia, the owner, was incredibly responsive and helpful throughout the process and her flat is both beautiful and incredibly well located for exploring the city.

And if you are the type to want to nest a bit, the kitchen is well equipped and stocked and the rooftop deck a delight.

One of my best VRBO experiences ever.

Beautiful Barcelona

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 10, 2014

My family stayed in Barcelona for 6 days over New Years week. We loved the city - it is extremely walkable and full of amazing history. I cannot speak highly enough of the hospitality we received from Lydia. The apartment is gorgeous - we enjoyed being able to cook (the kitchen is fully stocked, even with oil and spices!) and being able to come home to a comfortable place to be together after a long day of walking. Lydia welcomed us with traditional Spanish treats and fresh bread from the bakery. She was incredibly helpful for finding restaurants and cafes and advice on what to do.

I have never received such a warm welcome from a host before. It made all the difference in the world - and I would recommend this apartment without hesitation to anyone visiting Barcelona.

Beautiful Accommodations and Exceptionally Accommodating Host

I looked at several places to rent so my family could visit my son who was studying in Bacelona from the U.S. When I contacted the owner, Lydia, to inquire about this apartment, she was extremely accommodating and attentive to any question or concerns. She quickly returned all my emails and answered all my questions. She stayed in constant contact with me regarding my travel plans. After inquiring into other apartments, we chose this place because of Lydia's personal touch and her warm and friendly attention. And we were not disappointed! Upon our arrival the apartment was better than advertised. There was a generous welcoming basket of fruits, meats and other food and spirits. This helped tremendously as we did not have to grocery shop upon our initial arrival. The apartment was very clean and beautifully decorated and we felt at home. The owner was always available in case we needed anything at all. The owner had plenty of suggestions for everything from restaurants to places to visit. She was also fluent in multiple languages and couldn't be a friendlier person. I travel extensively for both pleasure and business and this is the first time I have ever written a review. I was very impressed with this beautiful, quiet, and safe apartment. I would not only recommend this to everyone, but this is the place I will stay at again if I ever return to Barcelona.

Paradise and Perfection

When you walk through the door there is this "WOW" factor. The condo is beautiful, the decor, the furniture, the overall layout. It works perfectly. but there is special something that Lydia does for her renters, There was a bottle of wine, a fruit basket, cookies, bread, meats, water...etc.. You don't find this in any other rental. It's that personal touch that goes why beyond. It is located very close to the beach, with a grocery store and a movie theater that has English language movies a couple blocks away.

Lydia was so kind, helpful and accommodating. She recommended places to eat, how to get around the city. However, we walked most everywhere, it's that close to all the sightseeing

Being from Hawaii or anywhere mainland USA, you are not familiar with European appliances. Well there is the "BOOK " This book shows in detail on how to use every appliance. We laughed when we kept saying..." Where's the book? or What does it say about.." They have thought of everything you will need to make your vacation wonderful. Would I recommend this condo? In a heartbeat. Will we be back? No doubt. Thank you Lydia and Alejandro

Map

The Olympic village of Barcelona is built on the sea front by the Port Olympic Marina. The two towers with a height of 153.5m dominate the Barcelona skyline, a nice view from our house. There are numerous sculptures along the sea front and a wide variety of restaurants, bars and 'chiringuitos' to enjoy the Mediterranean cuisine.

Another must-see is the Torre de las Aigues (1905); The Fish by the sea, designed by Frank Gehry, a huge copper-coloured steel structure that glimmers in the sunlight; the Plaza de Toros Monumental (1914) with its strongly influenced by Mudéjar and Byzantine architecture facade; the elegant Parc de la Ciutadella (1888) and its Monumental Cascade partially designed by Gaudí; and the Barceloneta, the old fisherman's area where you can feel the Mediterranean atmosphere you would expect to find in a fishing community, are some year round tourist attractions that you will not want to miss. And all of them within walking distance.

The Sagrada Familia by Gaudí (1882) is 1,5 miles, 11 min. by bus (10).

Take the subway (Ciutadella / Vila Olímpica L4) and in a quick ride of two stops you get to The Cathedral (13th-15th centuries), the astonishing Gothic Quarter where you walk back in History to the 10th century; and the Picasso Museum. One more stop and you will be by the well-known Plaza Cataluña and Las Ramblas.
