Guestbook comments from the owner

Hola Carmen. Thank you for everything. The apartment is beautiful, comfortable, so well located - we love it! Your suggestions were perfect and we had a wonderful time! I have rented several houses/apartments through VRBO and I must say that you have been the BEST property manager/owner I have had! Thank you so much! Barbara

Appartement très bien

très bel appartement où nous avons passé une très bonne semaine avec nos 2 filles. Très bien situé à 10 mn de la plage du zoo de l'aquarium de la rambla. Je recommande

Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Carmen met us at the door of the apartment and was very gracious and helpful in getting our bearing's straight. The apartment can not be in a better location in the city. All of the main sights are walkable but the best approach is to just walk around that area and get lost in all of the alleys and unique boutique shops. It is quintessential Europe. The beach is an easy 10-15 minute walk which worked out perfectly. The apartment itself was ideal for our family of 4. Had all of the essential things you would need and the washer and dryer were great to have. Neighborhood felt very safe with tons of restaurants and shops. Would book again!

Fantastic apartment in a wonderful city!

  • 4 of 5

We were 2 parents with adult daughter staying in Barcelona for 4 nights. Carmen was so helpful before we left US and greeted us on arrival. The apartment is in a great location and is very clean and spacious and has everything you need. Beds were very comfortable. Lots of shops and restaurants everywhere. We would definitely book this apartment again.

The property was spacious, quirky and well appointed. The location was fantastic. Within easy walking distance of the beach and marina, La Rambla and endless wonderful restaurants and shops. Perfect for walking round exploring a beautiful city. We will be back!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 5 young woman visiting Barcelona for the first time, and this apartment was perfect for us. Fabulous location.. we were within walking distance to almost everything. The apartment was very spacious, and had 2 bathrooms which was a bonus for us.

Carmen was very helpful & friendly, providing us with restaurant & bar suggestions.

The only complaint would be that the beds in the 2nd bedroom were comfier than the master bedroom.

Overall very happy with the apartment, we would definitely stay here again.

Located in El Born, a trendy area full of new designers and cozy restaurants, and near Santa Maria del Mar (Catedral del Mar), Picasso Museum, the old port and the beach. The terms that best describe this apartment are design and comfort. In an ancient building, it was completely renewed 2 years ago and it overlooks a quiet pedestrian street.
