This is a surprise and not always possible, and don't usually appear in the reviews made by guests, by owners request not to make it a duty.

This 80 square m (900 sq ft) two bedroom and one bathroom apartment is decorated with the best pieces, and located at the Barcelona 21st century Front Marítim-Diagonal Mar Quarter, in an astonishing building designed by famous architect Ricardo Bofill.

You can enjoy the lovely 'plaça prim barcelona', 'rambla poblenou', museums like 'museu blau' or 'museu can framis' in the area, as well as the biggest shopping mall in the city 'Diagonal Mar', with a big 'Wal-mart-like' inside, as well as all the shopping you might desire, as the area combines contemporary design like 'torre agbar' or 'diagonal 00' buildings and classic architecture.

You also get the best communications within the city, with bus stopping just in front, and underground station “Selva de Mar” only three blocks away, with which in example gothic quarter is reached in only 12-14 minutes, but you also have the relax of this less stressing and safer area, the promenade, the beach, in a brand new quarter with all the services close by.

Where elegance meets contemporary, in front of the mediterranean: that would be the best way to define the Sea Elegance Barcelona apartment.

You can feel the quality in each of the apartment details, with antiques coming from Barcelona, the Pyrenees, Germany and Morocco combined with design contemporary pieces.

The quality of the antiques and contemporary furniture , the Sony ES series HI-FI system with B&W loudspeakers and a wide collection of CD that you can play during your stay, that no way can be found in any rental apartment, the charming terrace with garden and sea views, the high quality electrical installation with several independent lighting modes for a more relaxing ambientation, makes this apartment a unique piece in the Barcelona beach.

bel appartement très bien situer

  • 5 of 5

Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement pour une famille ou un couple. Il est idéalement situé (à 10 minutes à pied du métro et des magasins). Les photos internet sont conformes à la réalité. C'est un logement agréable, bien équipé et sécurisé (parking; ascenseur). Le propriétaire donne tous les renseignements nécessaires pour faire une visite complète de Barcelone ainsi que les bonnes adresses (restaurant, tapas...).

De plus il est disponible et nous a très bien reçu (vin, gâteau, fruits....).

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour d'une semaine (avril 2015) sans avoir à nous soucier de rien.

Foncez, c'est une bonne adresse !

Une adresse parfaite : confortable, chic et acceuillante

  • 5 of 5

Sans tomber trop dans la redite, notre hôte était parfait dans son accueil, ses soins pour assurer une prestation de belle qualité (fruits, vins et tout pour le petit déjeuner), un ménage impeccable, pas un cheveu pas une poussière et une conformité totale avec les photos et le descriptif.

Au delà du réel confort de l appartement, literie, déco

Les + : - parking souterrain inclus dans le prix (une vrai économie !) avec une place large

- Metro à 5 mn très bien desservi (4 stations de la rambla et gothic en ligne directe)

- une personne qui vous accueille comme un cousin en prenant soins de vous présenter son Book touristique (visites,restos (on sent d ailleurs l expérience du gourmand), mais en plus se plie en 4 pour vous donner des tuyaux sur sa région en fonction de votre voyage

- une vraie cuisine pour croquer en famille si vous restez un peu (2 supermarchés à 5 mn) et une ecole hotelliere en face de l 'appartement - tres bon - le rêve !!!

- caution rendue sans delai à la sortie de l appartement

Nous nous sommes régalés - Merci David et désolé pour la poubelle

Excellent accueil et situation idéale

  • 5 of 5

J'avais d'abord choisi cet appartement pour notre séjour à Barcelone pour sa situation qui me paraissait idéale, un peu en dehors de la ville, près de la mer et près des transports en commun ainsi que pour son concept "presque tout inclus" qui m'évitait de devoir m'occuper de détails et qui nous garantissait une place de parking privée. Nous n'avons pas été déçu. Tout est tel que décrit par notre hôte qui, en prime, n'a pas hésité à nous donner de son temps pour nous conseiller dans l'organisation de notre séjour. Quoi de mieux que de recevoir de précieux conseils d'un Barcelonais!! L'appartement est fonctionnel dès l'arrivée et l'hôte est très réceptif aux besoins des ses visiteurs. Merci d'avoir contribué au bon déroulement de notre séjour.

Beautiful apartment on the beach of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

Even before we arrived at this beautiful apartment my experience with David was fantastic. I frequently rent through VRBO in the US and hadn't had as much pre-communication and helpful insights from an owner than I had with David. He took time to respond to my emails and provide suggestions for site seeing, restaurants, things to do with kids, etc.

Upon arrival in Barcelona David personally met us and spent considerable time orienting us to the city and the neighborhood, along with personally touring the apartment with us and ensuring we knew how to use the TV, washer and dryer (yes - he has a dryer!) dishwasher, etc. David even had groceries and wine for us since we arrived on Sunday and couldn't get to the market before they closed.

David made himself available to us throughout the week, responding immediately to emails and text to answer our questions, etc.

The apartment - oh the apartment - was gorgeous. Beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. The 2 bedrooms and pull-out sofa bed were ample room for 2 families traveling together. The large balcony patio outside the master bedroom/dining room doors looks onto a beautiful private garden and you can even see the sea! The Sea is a quick walk across the street for beach time or an afternoon stroll on the boardwalk.

Overall the experience renting from David was exceptional. We would highly recommend anyone looking for a comfortable, quiet apartment with quick and easy access to the beach and the city center to consider this apartment. We loved it!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

David's apartment is wonderful. Very tastefully decorated and very clean, as pictures show. Nice kitchen with all amenities, washer AND dryer big bonus. Location in quiet, though a bit far from city center, metro is 3 blocks away so we were not bothered by that. Market 3 blocks away has everything you need. There are a handful of restaurants within walking distance, unfortunately several were closed while we were there. Domo, right up the street was great for dinner. A couple of cafes right out the door for coffee and pastries. Close to beach, but we didn't spend any time there as it was still a bit cool.

David is a wonderful host and spends a lot of time with you going through the apt and explaining attractions around all of Barcelona, huge help, but be prepared if you are jet lagged, it is a lot of information. I would highly recommend David's place, we had a great time......Thank you!
