A comfortable stay at the Yellow House

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 04-Nov-2013
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2013
This review is about the Yellow House that is situated one floor below the Blue house apartment by the same rental agent Ignacio.
This is a two bedroom apartment with a wonderful sea views as well views of the marina. For a party of three there was plenty of space to sit and relax in the lounge/dining room areas or on the balcony itself with ample seating and a big plus was the manual wind-out awning to keep the morning sun out of eyes when having breakfast. Had an on-suite bathroom to the front bedroom and separate bathroom to the second room all very clean well tiled and everything works well especially the showers which were lovely and powerful. Plenty of storage space for clothing etc. Kitchen facilities were excellent with dishwasher and washing machines if needed to use.
We asked Ignacio to place WIFI in the apartment for us which he did immediately with no hassle. The apartments as mentioned with other reviews are situated next to a underground shopping complex to the rear of the apartment. Lovely reasonably priced supermarket and a few restaurants. Do try the Indian restaurant well priced with excellent tasty food.
Apartments are close to the Metro walking distance, taxi outside the apartments 29 euros to airport.
Thanks for everything Ignacio we enjoyed our stay I'm sure we will all be back to visit Barcelona again.

Great location, huge apartment

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 16-Oct-2013
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2013
I stayed at the Blue House with my parents at the end of September for four nights. The apartment was very well located, with the beach and marina on the doorstep and a couple of great café bars right outside the apartment block. While the apartment is on the 6th floor, there is a lift that stops right outside the apartment door, which meant that there were no issues for my elderly parents. The apartment was huge inside. The balcony was standard size but provided stunning views of the ocean and marina, which looked particularly lovely at night when it was all lit up. I made the mistake of not realising that the air conditioning was switched off at the mains, so spent four nights unable to sleep due to the heat but that was my own fault for assuming that the air con wasn't working rather than checking. The apartment is showing signs of wear and tear, and the cushions on the balcony settee could really do with replacing. However, apart from these little things, the apartment is a great choice for families and groups who want to enjoy independence in a very convenient location. There are plenty of shops just outside the apartment block too, including a big supermarket and clothes shops, which adds to the convenience.

Thank you very much for your comment and for your stay.
You've explained it very well :
wonderful sea views ! , very spacious and comfortable for even older people, and in excellent central location with all the services of the day next to the apartment
The cushions on the terrace is spoiled by the hot sun ! They change every year and have already been replaced
I wish that you can go back to The Blue House!

A lovely stay at the bluehouse

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 04-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2013
We were 2 families (all together 11 people) staying at the blue house for 5 nights during a vacation to spain. The apt. is in a nice building (with a locked front entrance) on the 6th floor with an elevator. It was very spacious and suited us as we were travelling with 7 kids. The kitchen was very well equiped for us to cook meals, just like at home and the dining table opened up so we could all sit around it. The view from the balcony was amazing, looking over the beach and harbor .The washing room upstairs was very usefull, even though the drier did not work (obviously a technical problem, we emailed igancio during the stay about it and he replied quickly), but with the central heating in the apt. the washing dried off quite quickly, even without the drier.
The water pressure in the shower downstairs was very low , but there are another 2 showers in the apt, so you can manage.
The apt. is in a great location- there is a big supermarket in a small shopping mall just underneath the building, it is about a 5-7 minute walk from the closest metro station and in walking distance from the beach, zoo, barcelona aquarium, and shopping mall next to it.
Across the road there are great parks for the kids to play in, also on the beach there is loads for the kids to do.
It is about a 15-20 minute taxi ride to the airport
I would highly recommend this apt. if you are travelling as a family with kids as it has all that you need and it is in a great location.
Thank you Ignacio for a great vacation in lovely Barcelona.
Owner's Response: Dear Yifat

A house as blue as the Mediterranean!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 13-Mar-2013
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2013
What we got was exactly what Ignacio promised! We spent 6 glorious days in this beach front apartment and loved waking up to the incredible view of the pier and ocean every single morning! A few of us even made coffee and went to sit on the beach one morning because it was only a few steps away. The kitchen was very well kept with all of appliances working (and even some bonus ones hidden away in the cabinets, like the coffee machine that we LOVED having!) and it was well stocked for cooking (we stayed in one rainy evening and cooked a big feast!) Likewise, a large supermarket was not even 2 minutes from the apartment, which was so convenient upon arrival! What the bedrooms lacked in space, the living spaces made up for! There was tons of room to socialize in the common area with many people. Our only complaint about the facilities was the quality of one of the showers downstairs that was cold and had no water pressure; however, it was okay because we all ended up using the one upstairs which was great! The location was absolutely perfect as I mentioned. We were close to the beach, we walked to Las Ramblas along on the nice afternoons we had, and the metro stop was right around the corner about a 7 minute walk from the apartment. As a result, all of Barcelona was at our fingertips. Ignacio was a reliable owner who was not only willing to negotiate, and work with us but he was also very kind and helpful since we had to arrive late at night and leave early in the morning. He truly was interested in making sure that we enjoyed our stay! It was a relief to have had such a great experience as our first time renting an apartment (in a foreign country no less...we were 6 American girls vacationing while studying abroad in Italy so this was quite an adventure!) I highly recommend the Blue House, especially for big groups! You will love the space and location even in the colder months! Only 2 days we were there were good beach days, but we still felt connected to the city. Likewise, it can be a quiet area or a party area depending on what you want, the choice is yours! Several clubs are within a 5 minute walk, but being in the penthouse, you do not have to deal with any street noise! Thank you so much Ignacio! Enjoy, everyone because we surely did!
Owner's Response: Dear Rebecca

Thank you very much for your extensive and loving Comment
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Barcelona and especially in The Blue House.
Yes, it's true what you say to get up in the morning and see a sunrise at sea is wonderful!
There are few places in Barcelona that can say the same!
Hope to see you, even when you are so far away!

Best wishes

Excellent location

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 08-Jan-2013
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2012
Location is perfect, bars and restaurants and supermarket downstairs. Excellent supermarket with huge choice of foods. Marina, clubs, beautiful beach opposite within 3 minute walk. Metro station short walk taking you into main shopping area of La Rambla. Able to walk to majority of places we visited, bus stop at back of shopping mall took you to most places if you don't want to walk! Watching the sunrise every morning from the balcony in December was very relaxing. Weather was warm 17 degrees, but colder once the sun went down, but still warmer than our families back in England (-5)!

If you have never been to Parc Guell - please go and experience the entrance to the park, walk along the narrow streets of El Born and the Santa Maria church and of course the Sagrada Familia. The Christmas lights around Placa Catalunya made the atmosphere very festive.

The cafe and pub downstairs (the same owners) is excellent. The breakfast is good quality, with good coffee, tea and staff.

We were visiting our family and have stayed before as we like the location both in summer and winter. Plenty of room for families or friends staying together.
