Guestbook comments from the owner

We have really enjoyed our stay and your lovely home is not only wonderfully located and equipped but also absolutely charming. I was personally very pleased to find your cookbooks since I had forgotten mine and we have tried to make a good use of your KitchenAid, In one word, we were at home.

Ibi was of good help and has suggested us to send some feedback. What kind of feedback could we do? There no such room for improvement. As for your house, don’t change anything, it was just perfect.

Beautiful Quiet Location yet easy for Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This is a great location, close to the sea, quick and cheap to get to Barcelona by bus or train, golf within a few minutes and some wonderful eating places nearby (try Cinnamon and Club 27) secure parking, excellent wifi and very well equipped. It is immaculately clean and very comfortable. The pool area is very relaxing and there are even 2 BBQ areas for superb al fresco dining.

In a quiet town , on a lovely street , in lovely quiet surroundings

  • 5 of 5

I would love to leave a negative review but that would only be so we can go back year after year without it being booked. No honestly in an ideal spot for us as we have family in Sant pere de ribes (within walking distance) , this house is in a lovely location with lovely views , the house has ample space for our family of 4 with plenty of room to sit outside and dine , the pool area was great for the kids to play all day , the kitchen was spacious and there was everything and more you need for your stay . Again this is a great house in a great location for us and we hope we can visit year after year .

Great House, Great Location, Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Can Guru and what a great time we had. The house lives up to every expectation set by the photos and description. We honestly could not fault the house, in fact it was better than expected.

If you are looking for a house that gives you a quiet location with countryside views yet a 5 minute walk from your door you have a good selection of bars and restaurants then this is the house for you.

The outside space is large and well zoned to the point that when we were there we never really went inside the house. The pool is salt water which is much better than most, it is heated by the solar so on a hot August day still meant it was refreshing.

The local beaches are fantastic, Villanova being our preferred option, easy to drive to and easier to park than Sitges.

The hourly coach to Barcelona was fantastic, why have the hassle of driving and parking when it costs 5 euro on the air-conditioned coach and took about 40 minutes to the centre.

Katy and the local manager Ibi were also great.

The question we always ask is would we return the simple answer would be yes.

I would say choose your time wisely due to heat and local flying things, however this is not a reflection on the house, just the fact we were in Spain in August.

The perfect holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Can Guru was just as perfect as the first - very comfortable and well equipped house and a fabulous garden and pool. Supermarket, baker and cafes nearby but you are reluctant to leave the property. A short easy drive from the airport. Great restaurant nearby, don't have the name but it has barrels outside! Great bus services to Sitges (no driving or parking hassles) and to Barcelona. We could stay forever!

It was my 50th Birthday and I decided to celebrate it somewhere special with my family. Special is exactly what we got A beautiful house in the most peaceful location. The house is fully equipped as is the garden. There is everything you require within the village, however if you require the beach or city its only a short bus journey. On my birthday my daughter arranged a chef to come in and cook for us, what an amazing experience. Check out

Lbi was there if we needed her, just a phone call away, and a pleasure to meet.

We hope to return soon.
