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.

well appointed and centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Ronda St Pere 33. We found the apartment well appointed and centrally located. The owners and apartment manager are friendly, responsive and very helpful, even when responding to unusual or unique questions. Finally, the apartment is spacious and comfortable, even for a family of 6, complete with kids and grandparents, as we were. I would recommend it and look forward to returning.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I was a little nervous doing a VRBO in a country where I didn't speak the language, but everyone was exceptional! Diana arranged for a taxi to pick us up and take us back to the airport and the apartment was absolutely lovely. Juan met us on our arrival and couldn't have been more helpful. I would highly recommend the apartment for anyone looking to stay in Barcelona.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

For starters, the service from the owner and property manager was exceptional. We were greeted upon arrival and given a host of pertinent information. The apartment is exactly as shown and described in the listing. Actually, it's more beautiful than we expected. The apartment felt like home away from home. It is centrally located and has all of the necessary amenities. I would strongly recommend this property to family and friends, and book this apartment again. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Regards, Dean B

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this apartment. Very nice rooms and everything was really clean. Just like the pictures in the presentation on the internet site. When we arrived we where shown around the apartment by a very nice young man who told us how everything worked and gave us a couple of tips of directions on where to go to the many places in Barcelona. A nice surprise, at least for us, was that the location of the apartment was even better than we thought, it is the perfect location. Quiet area and yet so central! Everything we wanted to see in Barcelona was in walking distance. We could really recomend this apartment and if we return to Barcelona we would for sure return to this apartment. Bea and Stephen was always responding to our questions. We were two parents with three kids aged 18, 14 and 8. All of us enjoyed the apartment with nice aircondition and wifi for the kids when we relaxed for short moments.

Splendid apartment in a wonderful city

  • 5 of 5

This bright, quiet and spacious apartment was perfect for a group of five older women meeting for a week in Barcelona. It is well located for this walkable city, with easy access to metro and bus. All the instructions and recommendations were helpful. A few extra benefits like a printer to print out timed reservations for the museums and Sagrada Familia. And Juan is an extremely helpful manager, with excellent English. We were more than happy to enjoy its comforts (including good showers and plenty of hot water) and would gladly return.

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.
