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.

With Kindest Regards,
Jul 2014

The PERFECT home away from home

  • 5 of 5

There is anything about this apartment that we didn't love. The personal touch (thanks Juan and Diane), the incredible location, and perfectly appointed apartment made us feel at home immediately. It was quiet but we were minutes away from shops, great restaurants and local life. Grocery store literally out the front door made it easy to get settled. The beds were super comfortable - a big thing for us. We would go back in a heart beat!! I spent hours looking for a rental. Shouldn't have. This one is perfect!! If I could give it a 10/5 Instead of 5/5 i would

Perfect quiet flat in clean very central location

  • 5 of 5

The owners have thought of everything to make sure you can fully enjoy your time in Barcelona. The unit is impeccable. The beds are excellent. The amenities and local advice were exceptional. From pre-arranged driver pick-up at airport (for a reasonable fee) and greetings at building by agent, not a detail was overlooked, and many additional perks were made available including a detailed binder of suggestions, a printer in case you needed to print tickets etc, and clear directions on how to stay safe. Worth every penny.

Excellent Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (with 3 kids ages 16, 16 and 13) just returned from Spain where we spent 3 lovely nights at this charming and well equipped Barcelona apartment. We had a very pleasant experience from start to finish. Diana was a pleasure to deal with - she was very responsive throughout the entire process and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. The apartment itself is very nice and well equipped and has everything that we needed - including all kitchen necessities and laundry equipment. The apartment is extremely quiet and comfortable and is also very well situated within walking distance of everything. Juan met us at the apartment right on time and provided great information about restaurants and sites. He was polite and professional. We would highly recommend this listing and would definitely stay here again. Classy and easy to deal with.

Beautifully appointed, personal, elegant central apartment

  • 5 of 5

You know as soon as you enter the rather fabulous lobby that this is going to be something special. The apartment is gracious and luxurious in a stylishly understated way. There is wonderful art on the walls - including photography and paintings by the talented host and his amazingly talented son. The ceilings are lofty; the antique parquet pristine. The flat looks out over a fascinating inner courtyard with much to delight the eye. This is not a faceless high end rental: it is a retreat for people who love quality, art, a sense of inhabiting a place. If you want understated comfort, quiet and and lovely furnishings and finishing touches, this is the place. Step out onto the street and you are right in all the action, with the Born, the Gothic Quarter and and the shops on your doorstep. There many fine places to eat within a five minutes' walk. But if you want a quiet night in, grab some delicious supplies from the El Corto Ingles food hall in the nearby Plaza Catalunya and enjoy cooking in the well appointed kitchen. We will definitely return to this wonderful home from home.

Impeccable apartment in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment as a family of four for 5 nights in November. The apartment was wonderfully clean and attractively decorated. The kitchen and bathrooms were elegantly updated with every appliance you would possibly need. Comfortable beds and very quiet for sleeping. The location was fantastic, an easy walk to the Gothic area and Plaza de Catalunya, including the Ramblas and Passeig de Gracia. The owner's provided a list of recommended restaurants which were spot on! A lift, good wifi and AC were all in top working order. You can't go wrong with this apartment.

Lovely apartment in a very good location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this lovely apartment for 5 nights during a recent vacation in Barcelona. The apartment and its furnishings are in great condition. The apartment was very clean on our arrival. Photos on the website accurately describe the home. Bed and bath linens were of good quality. Booking and payments were easy. Check in was friendly and efficient. Juan Frenandez, the check in agent, was friendly and professional. The apartment is at the back of the building with a Hitchcock "rear window" like view across a wide courtyard. It is very quiet inside! There is plenty of sunlight in the master bedroom and living room. The owners have provided a useful collection of tourist information and have a large number of recommended restaurants. There is a wifi printer so you can print your tickets for the city's many amazing attractions. Purchase in advance and avoid the long lines at the gates. Access was easy via stairs or lift. The apt on Ronda Sant Pere is well located between the gothic quarter and the Eixample, just a few blocks from the Palau de la Musica. We felt safe in the neighborhood at all hours. We walked almost everywhere. Transportation was easy with a taxi stand and metro stop on the corner. The kitchen appeared to be well supplied. We used the coffee pot and cork screw. There is a supermarket discretely tucked into the first floor of the building. It would be easy to cook meals in the apartment but don't do it! There are just to many wonderful restaurants to try in this amazing city.

This apartment is a great place to stay when visiting Barcelona!
