David is the perfect host! We couldn't have received better service in a five star hotel.

  • 5 of 5

I will not repeat the other fabulous reviews here but will reiterate that David was a very responsive host from the minute we put in an enquirer. He is very concerned about your well being and wants to make sure everything is accommodated for so do not be shy about contacting him with any concerns. His English is excellent.

The apartment is as pictured and described. It is lovely and has everything you need.

The location is very safe and though not right in the action of things, it is a very easy walk or metro ride into La Rambles and the Gothis quarter and elsewhere.

The fact that it is a bit removed means it is very quiet at night! Great sleeping.

A perfect place to stay if you have a conference at the CCIB.

A great place to be if you enjoy a long beach run.

Barcelona is lovely and David helps you enjoy it even more.

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

A great place to stay in Barcelona. The apartment was clean and tidy and had everything one would need during a vacation. The location is great. The MRT and Tram station is only about 5 minutes walk away. The bus stop is just around the corner from the apartment. The Diagonal Mar (Mall) and conference center is 10 minutes walk. And if you love the beach it is only a few minutes away. If you feel you don't want to cook, there are a number of "Tapas" cafes near by. If you like Chinese food the Wok Chow Restaurant near the MRT is a good place to go to. All you can eat for 23 Euros for 2 people.

David, our host was great. He went out of his way to make our stay in Barcelona a memorably one. He treated us to a huge bowl of fruit and food supplies when we arrived. For over an hour he showed us on a map where to go and visit. He even helped us organize our transport back to the airport after our stay. My wife and I have travelled to a number of places around the world and stayed in various apartments, and no other host has every treat us like David. A big thank you goes out to him. I highly recommend David and his 2 bedroom apartment for all those who are looking for a great place to stay in Barcelona.

Sea Elegance was a very nice unit with great access to the beach and transport. Easy access to the underground train. David was good to deal with and responsive. The kitchen is well equipped and we were impressed by David's thoughtfulness. We stayed for 5 days and found the local amenities such as food and groceries were close and convenient.

We couldn't have wished for more.

  • 5 of 5

We booked the apartment at the last minute BUT were VERY impressed with the response from David the owner and even more impressed when we arrived. David was there to meet us and then spent over an hour showing us where everything was and explaining all the methods of transport from the apartment and where to go and what to see.

The apartment itself had EVERYTHING you could wish for in the way of electrical goods and on top of that David provided tea, coffee, milk, butter, jam, a full bowl of fruit and 2 bottles of wine.

David was amazingly passionate about Barcelona and was as good a host one could wish for. We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to friends and family and when we will hopefully return to Barcelona next year we will DEFINITELY be staying here again

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We are an Irish couple age range 73---79 years!

We rented David's apartment for two weeks in September 2016.

We were met by David on arrival. He gave us a passionate account of the area,and Barcelona City.He is truly a Catalonian in love with his corner of Spain!

The apartment was so well situated beside the Hop on Bus and general City bus,3blocks from the Metro --walking minutes to a beautiful beach---these were all the reasons why we chose this apartment --Location --Location!

David was very kind and so helpful and texted us if there was any ongoing celebrations in the area e.g. Fireworks or Festivals.

The apRtment was so,cosy and extremely well equipped --top of the range Fridge/Freezer,oven,dishwasher,washing machine,dryer,very clean.

Towels(lots of them) beach towels,beach umbrellas,shopping trolley---could ramble on!----everything is supplied by the owner.

Beds so comfortable,and air conditioning brilliant.

We had a wonderful holiday and made a new friend in David and hope to keep in touch and go back sometime again.
