great location

  • 5 of 5

we stayed here for 5 nights and loved it. the location is incredible if you prefer to walk everywhere. excellent access to park guell and sagrada familia. walking to downtown area is ok too but a bit further.

one of the best features was the balcony. a particularly memorable night was just walking a 2 block radius and picking up caramelized onion ravioli, baguette (fresh pasta shop), 2 bottles of local wine (wine shop about 2 blocks away), and an amazing dessert from a pastisserie. an entire gourmet dinner on the balcony for less than 20 euro!

one mention too that although we didnt meet sandra, she was super helpful. we had trouble getting a taxi for our trip to the airport and she gladly booked one for us.

there is no question that i would stay there again if ever in barcelona.

Perfect for two

  • 5 of 5

This was our best rental yet and we use VRBO a lot. The Placa Joanic is right at the center of the Metro map of Barcelona and it feels like it. One can walk to most parts of the city or just jump on the subway down the block. Getting out of town is a breeze. And the view from the expansive terrace - truly magnificent. The entire eastern and southern skies are visible. We watched boats in the harbor ( bring a telescope or binoculars if you have them ) and could watch the sun set over the mountains. On a smaller scale, the little park below us was a shifting hub -bub of action. Dogs playing, kids soccer games, ping pong, and locals chatting on benches, all right at our feet.

The apartment itself is about average-sized by European standards, about 50 meters square. But it definitely feels larger with the high ceilings. constant sunlight, and big terrace. Kitchen was well-equipped and very functional. Bathroom was nicely done, with a good shower. Bedroom can be kept separate and quiet but even in February it was nice to crack the window and get fresh air while sleeping. The wifi worked well, except got a little slow at peak times , which was a neighborhood issue, not unique to our apartment. Everything you could want is obtainable within a 6 block radius- markets, bakeries, health club, wine store, empanada shop, bars to watch futbal- you really wouldn't ever have to leave the immediate neighborhood.

Of course the owner can make or break even the best of apartments. Sandra was genuinely a delight. Very responsive right from our first email til our last day and just a sweetheart of a person. Her English is great.

Taken all together this was about as nice a rental as a person could hope for. We spent a month here and would come back in a heartbeat. In fact we'd plan a trip around getting this very unit again if need be. Couldn't imagine staying anywhere else after this.

barcelona vacation

  • 5 of 5

we're a couple, age 55+, first time visitors to Spain. We loved Barcelona, Gracia, and this apartment. Gracia was a perfect location for our visit. Just far enough from the main whirlwind of tourist activity but not too far from all of the things we came to see(Gaudi,art, Barcelona history and culture). The Metro was just 1/2 block from the front door and took us everywhere, never needed or wanted a car. Food shopping was very convenient and good restaurants are abundant in every direction. The apartment was delightful. The terrace(9th floor) was a great place to unwind and review the day while looking over the city. We had everything we needed to prepare meals, the bed was comfortable, everything worked as it should. Sandra was very helpful with anything we needed and was a delightful host. We loved this place, felt right at home here and had a terrific visit to a beautiful city.

Logement parfait pour 4 adultes avec une vue imprenable sur les montagnes

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons bien apprécié l’accueil de Ramon pour nous présenter l'appartement et les détails des commerces aux alentours.

L'air climatisé fût très appréciée en ce temps de l'année.

Il ne manque qu'une cafetière d'une capacité de 8 tasses au moins au lieu de la petite cafetière italienne d'une tasse.

L'ascenseur devrait avoir un système de ventilation parce que monter au 7e niveau à quatre personnes, nous constatons rapidement le manque d'air frais. Il ne faudrait pas que l'ascenseur tombe en panne.

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la proximité de la station de Metro Joanic.
