About Alfred Cabanes

I am Alfred Cabanes, exclusive manager of Villa Rock since it has been in the short term rental market. I am an industrial engineer, since I finished my degree I had special interest in the tourism industry and specifically in the villa rental industry. Before promoting Villa Rock in Barcelona, I was and I am still directing a unique villa for rental, Mas Mateu at 55.000 euros per week which is a reference in this industry.

Lastly but not least, the manager of the villa has lived all his life in Barcelona and is keen to give advice on how to experience the modern and cosmopolitan city of Barcelona like a local. Such as, sporting events like going to a FCB football match, F1 GP or MotoGP, learning about the culture and history of Barcelona with a guide, tasting the rich gastronomy of Barcelona's restaurants, going to the theater or doing excursions to villages or town in the surroundings.

Alfred Cabanes purchased this house in 2012

Why Alfred Cabanes chose Sant Just Desvern

Barcelona is a worldwide hot spot in terms of tourism, since I started in this industry I always thought that Barcelona had a lack of luxury villas for short term rentals. So we explored the possibility and after a succesful test, we decide to keep it.

Villa Gaudi is located in the top district of Barcelona, with excellent views of the city and mediterranean sea, really well connected (is the closest you will find a villa to the city center of Barcelona), has been restored for the purpose of short term rentals, and lastly is fully licensed and insured.

For multiple reasons:

- Quality of the area, quality of the villa and unrivalled garden and views.

- All bedrooms in the villa are en-suite.

- Only property with touristic license in the area.

- Only property used exclusively for short term rentals under a professional mangement.

- Several years in the rental market with excellent customer satisfaction.

- Manager expertise, it will not only help with the villa, he is used to giving advice on what to do and what to recommend in Barcelona.

What makes this house unique

Decent Property and responsive manager

  • 4 of 5

Overall the property was okay. The photos though give the wrong impression about the property. I thought the house was more new contemporary which is true inside as you can see from the photos but the exterior of the house is an old house. Our stay was generally okay except for issues with the front gate which was electric and didn't open and close properly so we got trapped a few times until the property manager disabled it and then we could just manually open and close it. Also the internet comes and goes. When its working the speed it okay and when its out its only for a few minutes but if you need stable internet you may be disappointed. There was good air conditioning throughout the house which was nice. One issue we had was that we thought there was a tennis court there and i'm not sure what to call the thing that was there but its not a tennis court. its the size of a badminton court but then with a low net so i'm not really sure what it is but it wasn't usable. Another issue we had was there was an ant problem outside that really should be attended to. Overall we had a good stay and the interior of the house is nice and it has a big pool. If you are aware there is no tennis court and your expectations are set correctly i think you'll enjoy your stay but if you are thinking you are going to a new contemporary house with a tennis court and great internet then it may not live up to your expectations.

Summer Breeze with Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week at Villa Gaudi and absolutely loved it. The villa has the most incredible views on all sides and I think some of the largest property in the neighborhood -- which was great for hanging by the pool, exercising under the trees or just enjoying a glass of wine on the terrace.

We were four couples so each had a room and our own bathroom in the house (although one of the rooms did have a funny odor). The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need -- including a Nespresso maker. We were a little concerned when we arrived because the pool had turned green due to a rainfall, but our pool/garden man Mikaela assured us he would have it blue in a day and he came multiple times during the next two days and he did it. Having a pool after a day of sightseeing was really a treat! He was also very helpful with getting us into town to the supermarket.

Prior to arriving Alfred was most helpful with tour guide recommendations and he hired us a chef for the evening that cooked one of the most outstanding meals we've ever had! When we realized that the wireless speakers were missing from the house, Alfred sent over a brand new set right away the next morning. The only thing that you may want to make sure of is that they have the house opened prior to your arrival. When we got there the air was not on and the windows were all drawn, so it was dark, hot and musty. However, after an hour the house was bright, cool, aired out and started to feel like home.

We rented a car so we could go to the supermarket and into town for anything we needed, but we used the taxi service to go to Barcelona each day/night. Taxis ranged from 20-35 euros each way depending on how far you were going. Ask Alfred for the number and make sure to leave time for them to come up the hill...many times they didn't speak english but we were able to communicate just fine. Beware that on Sundays things close down -- it's a great day to head to the beach! I f you are traveling with friends or family and are looking for a lovely place to call home I would recommend Villa Gaudi.

Great villa with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Vlla Gaudi. There is plenty of space inside and outside and more than enough dishes, glasses and other utensils. The manager Alfred was extremely helpful throughout our stay and could be contacted at any time. He even arranged taus for us.

The villa is a bit out of Barcelona but it is very easy to drive there or get a taxi. The taxi to the centre was always under €20. Being high up, the views from all round the villa are stunning and the grounds are huge. The villa deserves to have 5 stars but the reason I have not given 5 stars is because the garden was in need of some attention and the pooman never came so by the end of the week the pool had turned a funny colour and we couldn't use it. This would have been a problem had it been the summer season.

The bedrooms and bathrooms were all very comfortable and very clean.. The ground floor and top floor bedrooms were extremely spacious with large modern bathrooms.

I would definitely recommend this villa and would go back again.

Excellent Villa, top district

  • 5 of 5

We had to look for accommodation in Barcelona very last minute and Alfred was super helpful. We stayed in Villa Gaudi during our business trip and we can only say good things about it, Alfred assisted us in arranging all we needed from transportation in & out the villa, to maid service and chef for one night that we invited our customers. Villa Gaudi was top class, I will come back with my family for sure.
