About Bea and Stephen Garforth

Bea and Stephen come from an artistic background & you will see Bea's flair for style and comfort in the apartment with natural linen and cotton fabrics, with many of Steve’s ( a pro-photographer) photographs and original art. They have previous experience of discerning rental clients with their beautiful 12th century Priory (now sold) and are very excited by their new adventure in the heart of Barcelona. They have created this peaceful and comfortable apartment, a real home, for you to enjoy.

Bea and Stephen Garforth purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Bea and Stephen Garforth chose Dreta de l'Eixample

We fell in love with this apartment because it is in a most beautiful palatial modernist house in L'Eixample, a district with some superb classically designed buildings constructed in the late 19th Century, yet within walking distance of the old city & many sites in central Barcelona. The apartment is spacious light and quiet a great place to come home to after a busy day in Barcelona.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time in Barcelona and loved the flat We also appreciate all the great suggestions in the book. Also Rachel was great. Very helpful! Your suggestions were great and we ate at Aqua twice and at a few of the other recommendations too! There is so much to do and see in Barcelona, I am sure we will come back again. We will certainly recommend your lovely flat as we really enjoyed it. The book full of suggestions was very useful.

The only suggestion I could think of that might help people, concerns Barcelona's layout of the underground. A more explicit indication in your book of the underground system might be useful.

The apartment was well appointed, and we loved the way it was decorated. Also so nice to open up the windows and look out onto the courtyard! It was great to be able to print out boarding passes from the printer (much appreciated) and the bottle of wine was a welcome gesture! In all, we could think of nothing that we would want changed. The area was great and so convenient.

Thank you so much for everything. We have some fond memories of our time in Barcelona and would love to return. We will certainly highly recommend your flat to others and appreciate all you did to make our stay so great.



With Kindest Regards,

Fantástico fin de semana

  • 5 out of 5
Mi mujer y yo disfrutamos de un fin de semana en el precioso apartamento de Bea & Steve, situado en un punto céntrico de la ciudad, y aún así sorprendentemente tranquilo. Es de agradecer la multitud de detalles que nos hicieron sentir en casa, como todo el equipamiento de cocina, baño y las perfectas habitaciones. Apreciamos el buen gusto de la decoración y las piezas de arte escogidas, que nos permitieron conocer en particular el buen trabajo fotográfico de Steve.
Tan sólo cruzar el portal desde la calle, uno puede admirar la arquitectura del edificio, y la misma buena impresión causa el regreso al apartamento después de una jornada intensa visitando el Barrio Gótico, el mercat de Santa Caterina y el Born, así como la zona comercial del centro, a un tiro de piedra del apartamento.
La perfecta conexión en metro, en la esquina de la manzana, nos facilitó visitar el MNAC en Montjuïch, y también alcanzar la estación de tren de Sants rápidamente. Queremos agradecer especialmente la disponibilidad de Rachel y Brad para facilitarnos el check-in y check-out a la hora más conveniente para nosotros.
Finalmente comentar que seguimos las buenas recomendaciones gastronómicas proporcionadas por los propietarios con antelación a nuestro viaje, y así disfrutamos de una divertida comida en les Cuines de Santa Caterina, y también por nuestra parte quisiéramos recomendar el cercano restaurante Casa Alfonso, donde preparan unas estupendas tapas.
Muchísimas gracias por su hospitalidad, y por hacer nuestra estancia tan agradable.

Home away from home

  • 5 out of 5
We were 5 adults and a baby and really enjoyed this very comfortable and well mantained apartment.
It is lovely and decorated with good taste.
We had everything we needed and truly felt at home
The position is very convenient, close to the centre and the metro, surrounded by a choice of restaurants, coffee shops and not far from the main shopping streets.
Also there is a lovely big park near by- Parc de la Ciutadella and near the Gothic quarter.
The area is quiet though central, and we had a wonderful time .

Gorgeous Apartment !

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Sant Pere along with my sister in law and brother in law early October.
The apartment was absolutely gorgeous. The pictures do not do it justice. So beautifully and tastefully decorated.
Even though we did not take the time to cook in the apartment it had every amenity you could think of. We just were not there long enough.
The location was perfect. In the heart of the city but just far enough away that when you came back to the apartment it was nice and quiet.
A big thank you to Brad who was wonderful. He took the time to go thru everything with us and was extremely kind.
Another big thank you to Bea and Steve for creating such a memorable place.
We definitely hope to be back next year.

Warmest Regards
Franca

Charming apartment with comfortable furnishings and great owners & managers!

Charming apartment with comfortable furnishings and great owners & managers!
  • 5 out of 5
Bea and Steve were accommodating and professional as of my first inquiry into their unit. After booking my reservation, they followed up with me to gather my flight schedule with the offer to arrange a cab for me and my family at my arrival. The apartment instantly felt like home--and I wished it was! Beds were comfortable, the shower water pressure was great, and there was a computer with a printer for our use as well as a nice, strong wifi signal.

Both Steve and Bea were wonderful as were their managers, Brad and Rachel. They provided recommendations on restaurants, sightseeing, and even some insider tips on avoiding long tourist lines! Steve was flexible with me when I unexpectedly reduced our three night stay to a two night stay and then he later accommodated our request for both an early check-in and a late check-out! I only wish we were able to stay longer.

I highly recommend this unit if you are looking to rent for your stay in Barcelona. It is in walking distance to many beautiful neighborhoods including the famous Las Ramblas. I should share that I did consider staying at a hotel in Las Ramblas and in hindsight, I am so happy we chose to go with this vacation rental. I'd much rather visit Las Ramblas during the day and be able to retreat to this much quieter apartment to rest and rejuvenate.

Thank you Bea and Steve for our amazing getaway!

Beautiful apartment in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was absolutely beautiful, spacious and comfortable with luxurious furnishings. The location was perfect - within walking distance to the Born and other great areas. A convenient market was located just down the street. A metro station about 1 block away. Steve and Bea were very easy to work with and made the booking process a breeze. The apartment manager (Rachel) was very pleasant and provided some great recommendations to consider during our stay. I would highly recommend this property to friends visiting Barcelona.

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of four spent 9 wonderful days here. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great location that is quiet but yet only a few mins from the great sights of BCN. Spacious and very comfortable and looked just like pics online!! You will not be disappointed. From the first time I contacted Bea and Stephen it was smooth all the way from booking to our arrival process. Rachel was wonderful host when we arrived and happily arranged taxis from and to Airport. Barcelona was amazing, the people, the food, but it was the sights that were breathtaking from Picasso Museum to the the numerous Guadi locations such as Casa Batllo, La Pedrera, and The Sagrada Familia (Advice - take an organized tour here to really get to know his life and ambitions - you also get to skip lines...). Day trip to Colonial Guell and Monserrat was well worth it. Overall, sad to leave our home at Ronda Sant Pere truly was a perfect BCN getaway. Thanks for sharing your home.
