Why Bea and Stephen Garforth chose 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.

Comfortable and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and I spent 3 nights at Sant Pere. We found it to be very comfortable, well-appointed, and convenient to great dining and the old section of the city. Bea and Stephen were easy to deal with and we appreciated access to Juan to ask questions about the city during our stay. We especially appreciated the hosts' recommendations for sightseeing and restaurants, which we took advantage of. We would recommend to anyone wishing to have more spacious accommodations than a hotel and be able to have breakfast food/snacks/drinks at the ready vs. having to go out.

A gem in the heart of Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute Juan let us into the apartment our 4 days at Sant Pere was extraordinary! The light coming in through the tall ceiling -height windows was enlivening! The apartment is beautifully appointed with fine linens and comfortable attractive furniture. Even the artwork is exceptional! The location is perfect for walking to most neighborhoods while the metro stop is only 2 blocks away. I am praying we can return to soon!

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Excellent physical accommodations, comfortable and with high-quality bedding, linens, etc. Very well-maintained (basically new), quality appliances and clean. Kitchen was well-equipped and stocked with most anything one might want. Photos and description is spot-on.

Stephen and Bea were a delight to deal with as were their team of Diana and Juan. Very professional and helpful throughout.

Apartment is very conveniently located -- easy walk to excellent dining and metro stop less than a block walk. Excellent market next-door (but unobtrusive) with anything one might want.

Would highly recommend.

Great location and comfortable beautiful apartment

We really enjoyed our stay at Sant Pere. The apartment was comfortable with great lighting, good heat for cold days and good ventilation for warm times. The kitchen was easy to use and well equipped, and the location is perfect for shopping and sightseeing.

Lovely Apartment in a Fabulous Location!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin? We spent a week in this amazing apartment (it wasn't long enough!)-3 lovely bedrooms, 2 modern bathrooms, well-equipped kitchen and a light-filled, spacious living/dining area which was a joy to come back to after busy days sightseeing. The apartment is in a great location, we only took the subway once (to Montjuic/Miro Museum) as so many nearby/walkable sights, including the Palau de la Musica Catalana, Placa de Catalunya and the wonderful Santa Caterina market for fresh fish and vegetables. (Note: there is a large supermarket next door-very discretely placed-which was convenient as well.) Also appreciated the very helpful notes re shopping, restaurants and bars which the hosts provided. Checkin was a breeze with Juan-very charming and helpful fellow. Can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay here-we will most definitely return.

A fantastic apartment in the heart of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This flat is exactly as advertised. It is right in the heart of Barcelona and very convenient to the metro. The apartment is very large, clean, and tastefully decorated. We have stayed in many VRBO locations in the US and Europe and this is one of our favorites. My wife and I stayed here for 4 days with our 3 late teens early 20 yo children. I would definitely stay her again.

Bea and Steve communicated consistently as our arrival approached and Diana was great representative on site.
