Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in a rare gem in Barcelona. Off the street in a pedestrian walkway. Quiet, peaceful, safe. This apartment is a dream and a haven of perfection. Lydia is obviously a special genuine true soul who cares and goes beyond anything to help. The design, quality and all the special details obviously reflect and mirror image the wonderfulness of our hosts. Merci mille fois…one thousands thank yous!

Thuis!

  • 4 out of 5
Een prachtig, luxe, schoon, rustig en veilig thuis. Deze woning in het Olympisch dorp is met liefde en zorg, zeer modern ingericht. De locatie is perfect, op loopafstand van het strand, metro en hop on/off bus en een erg goede bakker en supermarkt vlak om de hoek. Lydia is de perfecte gastvrouw en zal van begin tot eind er alles aan doen om je te helpen en om je thuis te laten voelen. Er stond eten en drinken klaar, de badkamers waren voorzien van douchecreme, shampoo en conditioner, de bedden waren fris opgemaakt, handdoeken lagen klaar en zelfs mooie badlakens voor naar het strand. Uit de grap zeiden wij dat we maar een ding misten en dat was de kaasschaaf. Deze kwam ze tien minuten later brengen ;-) Wij hebben 4 dagen lang elekrische fietsen gehuurd en dit was voor ons de ideale manier om prachtig Barcelona te zien. 's Avonds thuis opladen en de volgende dag weer op pad! Lydia: nogmaals ontzettend bedankt voor alles!

Beautiful Appartment five minutes from the beach.

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I and another couple stayed here in end of August - beginning of September. This is a beautiful apartment living room (with fold out couch) and kitchen and one bathroom with shower on first floor; two bedrooms with a bathroom with shower upstairs, and a terrace on the third level. Lydia, the owner, was very nice and accomodating, she was very responsive to emails and calls, she had done groceries shopping for us when we arrived, she was there promptly to meet us and was available throughout our stay to answer questions, provide restaurant recommendations, arrange taxi pick up to go to airport. The apartment is very clean, has everything you need, kitchen is fully stocked with appliances. Airconditioning works well in all bedrooms and other areas, plenty of light. Also it is on a very quiet residential street so there is no noise at night. We ended up taking taxi everywhere but there is a metro stop and bus stops very close by, there are stores to buy groceries and other items you might need. It is a few minutes from the beach and a beautiful area with many restaurants and bars - lively night life. There is a tourist bus that stops nearby and takes you all over the city as well. It is possible to walk from the appartment to the center of the city but it is not a short walk - not something you will want to do every day. Only thing I would note is that this appartment has pretty steep stairs and there is a guard rail only on one side so it is not the place for little kids/toddlers. For couples or families with older kids and especially if you want to be close to the beach - perfect place!

notre séjour à Barcelone

  • 5 out of 5
Notre séjour à Barcelone a été tout simplement magnifique. Lydia, notre hôte, nous a réservé un accueil parfait et très chaleureux, en nous réservant de petites attentions qui nous ont touché. Le mobilier est très confortable, design, les pièces sont spacieuses et nous avons apprécié la terrasse sur le toit. Tout était réuni pour que nous passions un très bon séjour et que nous ayons envie de revenir très vite. Nous recommandons très vivement cet endroit de rêve.

Perfect vacation!!!

  • 5 out of 5
This is an ABSOLUTELY PERFECT apartment!
My husband, and me, and our two granddaughters (ages 8 and 12) spent 10 wonderful days!
Its location (near the beach and not far from all places of interests in Barcelona) and its modern and cozy design is great. Internet connection is flawless, air conditioner is very helpful on hot nights!
Lydia is an incredible host! The welcome basket with local wine (white and red!), and champagne, and juice, and local food, and fresh bread, and fruits and many other things were unbelievable! Her tips for dining are fabulous! The bakery around the corner from the apartment is amazing!
Lydia, thanks a lot for your amazing hospitality & use of your beautiful apartment.

The very best because of the care and attention of the owners

  • 5 out of 5
To understand why this property has so many five-star ratings you must read all the other reviews with which we completely agree in terms of the beauty of the home, its locaton and its amenities. However, what made this trip special for us (our 45th wedding anniversary), is Lydia and Alejandro the owners. Not only in their welcoming presence and constant attention to our comfort - the gifts of food and wine upon arrival being one example - but also in their recommendations for things to do and see and where to eat. We dined 6 times (we stayed for 14 nights) at El Cangrejo Loco, one of their recommendations, where we were treated like royalty because the maître d' knew Lydia. I urge anyone who wants a 25 euro 3-course dinner of impeccable seafood and other delicacies, to take advantage of this recommendation - believe me if you are a traveller you will know what a deal this is. Lydia and Alejandro joined us for a drink at the house, and we had the time of our lives. They are funny, loving and have good stories to tell about life in Spain and their own travels. All of these aspects of their personalities are, I believe, what makes their home so special. We have rented many VRBO's, including 4 bedroom villas with pools, BUT this has been the best because of all that Lydia and Alejandro do to make a visitor feel at home and important to them. Her responses to any questions during booking and our stay were always prompt and comprehensive. A delight, a dream, and a memory that will last forever. Thanks Lydia and Alejandro, with kisses on both cheeks. Forgot to mention that we also loved Barcelona so, so much, but particularly that we were close to the seafood restaurants and the beach walks. xxx

Traumhaus in einer wundervollen Lage

  • 5 out of 5
Das Haus hat unsere Erwartungen bei weitem übertroffen! Superschön stylisch eingerichtet, neu, und vor allem blitzsauber.
Die Vermieterin hat für alles gesorgt, was das Herz begehrt. Das Haus steht in einer ruhigen Fußgängerzone mitten in Barcelona am Olympischen Hafen. Ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuß an den Strand.
Wir freuen uns schon, wenn wir wiederkommen!

Location

Location

The Olympic village of Barcelona is built on the sea front by the Port Olympic Marina. The two towers with a height of 153.5m dominate the Barcelona skyline, a nice view from our house. There are numerous sculptures along the sea front and a wide variety of restaurants, bars and 'chiringuitos' to enjoy the Mediterranean cuisine.

Another must-see is the Torre de las Aigues (1905); The Fish by the sea, designed by Frank Gehry, a huge copper-coloured steel structure that glimmers in the sunlight; the Plaza de Toros Monumental (1914) with its strongly influenced by Mudéjar and Byzantine architecture facade; the elegant Parc de la Ciutadella (1888) and its Monumental Cascade partially designed by Gaudí; and the Barceloneta, the old fisherman's area where you can feel the Mediterranean atmosphere you would expect to find in a fishing community, are some year round tourist attractions that you will not want to miss. And all of them within walking distance.

The Sagrada Familia by Gaudí (1882) is 1,5 miles, 11 min. by bus (10).

Take the subway (Ciutadella / Vila Olímpica L4) and in a quick ride of two stops you get to The Cathedral (13th-15th centuries), the astonishing Gothic Quarter where you walk back in History to the 10th century; and the Picasso Museum. One more stop and you will be by the well-known Plaza Cataluña and Las Ramblas.
