Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed in a rare gem in Barcelona. Off the street in a pedestrian walkway. Quiet, peaceful, safe. This apartment is a dream and a haven of perfection. Lydia is obviously a special genuine true soul who cares and goes beyond anything to help. The design, quality and all the special details obviously reflect and mirror image the wonderfulness of our hosts. Merci mille fois…one thousands thank yous!

PERFECT VACATION!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is an ABSOLUTELY PERFECT apartment!
My husband, and me, and our two granddaughters (ages 8 and 12) spent 10 wonderful days!
Its location (near the beach and not far from all places of interests in Barcelona) and its modern and cozy design is great. Internet connection is flawless, air conditioner is very helpful on hot nights!
Lydia is an incredible host! The welcome basket with local wine (white and red!), and champagne, and juice, and local food, and fresh bread, and fruits and many other things were unbelievable! Her tips for dining are fabulous! The bakery around the corner from the apartment is amazing!
Lydia, thanks a lot for your amazing hospitality & use of your beautiful apartment.

THE VERY BEST BECAUSE OF THE CARE AND ATTENTION OF THE OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
To understand why this property has so many five-star ratings you must read all the other reviews with which we completely agree in terms of the beauty of the home, its locaton and its amenities. However, what made this trip special for us (our 45th wedding anniversary), is Lydia and Alejandro the owners. Not only in their welcoming presence and constant attention to our comfort - the gifts of food and wine upon arrival being one example - but also in their recommendations for things to do and see and where to eat. We dined 6 times (we stayed for 14 nights) at El Cangrejo Loco, one of their recommendations, where we were treated like royalty because the maître d' knew Lydia. I urge anyone who wants a 25 euro 3-course dinner of impeccable seafood and other delicacies, to take advantage of this recommendation - believe me if you are a traveller you will know what a deal this is. Lydia and Alejandro joined us for a drink at the house, and we had the time of our lives. They are funny, loving and have good stories to tell about life in Spain and their own travels. All of these aspects of their personalities are, I believe, what makes their home so special. We have rented many VRBO's, including 4 bedroom villas with pools, BUT this has been the best because of all that Lydia and Alejandro do to make a visitor feel at home and important to them. Her responses to any questions during booking and our stay were always prompt and comprehensive. A delight, a dream, and a memory that will last forever. Thanks Lydia and Alejandro, with kisses on both cheeks. Forgot to mention that we also loved Barcelona so, so much, but particularly that we were close to the seafood restaurants and the beach walks. xxx

TRAUMHAUS IN EINER WUNDERVOLLEN LAGE

  • 5 of 5
Das Haus hat unsere Erwartungen bei weitem übertroffen! Superschön stylisch eingerichtet, neu, und vor allem blitzsauber.
Die Vermieterin hat für alles gesorgt, was das Herz begehrt. Das Haus steht in einer ruhigen Fußgängerzone mitten in Barcelona am Olympischen Hafen. Ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuß an den Strand.
Wir freuen uns schon, wenn wir wiederkommen!

OH SO LOVELY!

  • 5 of 5
Myself, my husband and grown- upish daughter stayed for four nights but I would have prefered 14 or 40! I have stayed in many a rental home in Europe and America and we all thought that this was the most comfortable and we were made to feel the most welcome. We did cook a few times and it also has the best equipped kitchen (and had ample crockery) I have come across. The bakery (2 minutes away) is fantastic. It is easy to walk to the park, beach and El Born. We walked further but it depends on your legs. My favourite place in the house was the roof space . Wonderful. Will absolutely return and also the hosts are really rather special.

TERRIFIC APARTMENT NEAR BEST BEACHES!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the apartment as well as the great location near the beach. Lydia was an incredible host and very helpful throughout our stay.

The apartment is a short walk to beautiful beaches, restaurants, bars and the casino. There was a metro station nearby that made it convenient to catch a train to see other parts of the city as well (taxi stands as well).

The apartment itself is very well appointed, clean and modern and has a couple of great outside areas to relax, have a meal or just a drink before dinner. There is a grocery store nearby, as well as several cafes for coffee, breads, etc.

We came to Barcelona to enjoy the beach and the location was excellent for that. I would stay again if we should ever return to Barcelona.

Highly recommended!

ATTRACTIVE MODERN DESIGNED AND WELL EQUIPPED APARTMENT IN A FAVOURABLE AND QUIET LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay very much and the warm reception and welcome surprises were indeed appreciated.

The apartment has been refurbished to a high standard and we will consider this again for our next Barcelona visit. The promotion on YuuTube and pictures are telling a fair story.

It has a favourable location and still you can retire to a sheltered area where can prepare and enjoy your own lunch or dinner. Shot walking distance to the beach and El Born well within reach with a short walk (for Norwegians at least).

Lydia, the owner was very helpful by letting us rent this apartment as there had been overbooking of another apartment very close by. The two neighbours helped us out in a very satisfactory way. We got all assistance we asked for and it was given with a positive, caring attitude which gests will appreciate.

We will recommend it for our friends and also others. The apartment is not an area you will like your kids to do as if they may want to do at home as the apartment is so well designed and equpped that you like to treat it with care.

We will seriously consider to rent the apartment once more as Barcelona is indeed a fantastic city and place to visit many times. We have only been here 3 times so there will definitely come more opportunities. The Olympic village is a very convenient place as the base camp for exploring Barcelona.

Kind regards from 2 staisfied guests

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.
