Born and raised in San Francisco, I have been living in Barcelona for the last 15 years, where I work as a writer for a small jazz record label. My wife Floriana is an architect from Italy. We have a four-year old daughter Luna who is our pride and joy. Despite coming from different places, Barcelona has really become home for us.

Eric Mills purchased this apartment in 2013

I've only owned this apartment for a short time. I knew that I wanted to get a place near the Arco de Triunfo, as I've fallen in love with the openness of the street Paseo San Juan and its proximity to so many of my favorite places. I had been searching in this area until I finally found this fabulous apartment!

The flat is both modern and minimalist, yet warm and cozy. The huge terrace, tastefully designed rooms and high beautiful ceilings all combine to make this an extremely delightful and relaxing place for a romantic or family-oriented get away.

The apartment is a little slice of heaven in a very quiet and convenient neighborhood, just a short walk to El Born and the beach and all the sights. Aida couldn't have been more helpful with amazing dining suggestions and places to go. A terrific hostess! Everything was as expected and more. Clean, well-provisioned and comfortable. Highly recommended.

OUTSTANDING

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I just came back from 10 wonderful days in Eric's apartment. The location is fantastic and is walking distance to everthing Barcelona has to offer. The apartment is EXTREMELY clean--it is spotless. It has what very new kitchen appliances, a very nice TV that offers English channels and a wonderful terrace. The master bedroom has lots of drawer/hanger space. Those staying in the smaller bedroom might want to be aware that there are no drawers in that room, but there is a cabinet outside of the room that can be used. There are grocery stores very near the apartment also. I had many questions along the way and Eric was wonderful with answering any that I asked of him. He was not able to be in Barcelona while we were there but his friend Aida was a wonderful hostess. When you arrive, you will not be disappointed--this apartment is as pictured. Nothing is covered up and you will NOT find surprises when you get there! If there were more stars to give, I'd have given them!

WE HAD A GREAT TIME IN BARCELONA!

  • 5 out of 5
We, a family of 2 adults and 2 children had a great time in Barcelona on December 24, 2013 to January 9, 2014. It was superb!
The excellent location of the apartment allowed us to do without a car. We had excellent hiking (sometimes use a taxi) to the main attractions of Barcelona.
Great shops, restaurants, parks and entertainment are within reach.
Many thanks to Floriana and Eric.

PERFECT LOCATION, GREAT VALUE, WONDERFUL HOSTS!

  • 5 out of 5
First of all, Eric's flat is in the ideal L'Eixample location. Close enough to walk to the usual attractions, but nicely tucked away from the tourist trap hotels. You truly live among locals and get a good feel for the neighborhood. There are a LOT of dining options in the area, and Eric's recommendations were spot on! We particularly enjoyed Txakolin & Espai Sucre. The flat itself is quite spacious (there were only 2 of us), with tons of storage, and all the amenities. A big PLUS is the washer/dryer, which makes it easier to pack light, as well as a small safe for valuables (which we felt was unnecessary in this safe neighborhood). Very modern furnishings, and good wifi. The building is very quiet, particularly since it does not front the main street. There's lots of natural light. Eric was out of town at the time, but he left us in the very capable hands of his friend, Aida. We stayed for 7 nights, and by the end, we fell in love with the neighborhood. The entire process, start to end, was quite seamless.

VERY COMFORTABLE APARTMENT AND GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
In early October we spent 4 nights at Eric's apartment and enjoyed it thoroughly. The apartment was comfortable, clean and roomy, and the terrace was terrific. The location worked very well for us - an easy walk to the park, the hop on/hop off bus main stop, the old part of the city and the port. The area itself is lovely - not too busy, but with 2 large supermarkets just over a block away, great prepared food spot across the street and some very good restaurants just around the block. Eric was a pleasure to deal with - very obliging when setting up the rental agreement, and prompt with responses when we had a couple of questions. All in all, a very good experience and we would highly recommend this apartment.

PERFECT!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a luxurious apartment, centrally located, near three metro stops, easy walking to the Old City, Plaza Catalunya, Sagrada Familia, Barceloneta. We were two guys, using two bedrooms. There's clearly comfortable room for more people. There's also a garden with seating, a separate laundry room with washer and dryer. A full and modern kitchen. Eric was friendly, responsive with good information. Hated to leave.

This apartment is located only 3 blocks away from the Arco de Triunfo and Barcelona's beautiful Ciutadella Park (with the zoo) and only a 10-minute walk to the charming Born neighborhood in the Gothic quarter, and the very center of the city at Plaza de Cataluña and Las Ramblas. It is also close to two different metro stops, Barcelona's primary bus station and walking distance from the Sagrada Familia and Hospital San Pau, as well as Gaudi's lovely buildings on Paseo de Gracia: La Pedrera and the Casa Batlló.

In addition, there are numerous outstanding restaurants within a short walking distance (I will provide you with a list). Quiet yet centrally located, the area is perfect for a relaxing and exciting get-away!
