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.

Fabulous Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

5 of us stayed in this fabulous apartment for 3 nights. It has everything you need for your stay, was very clean and very well appointed. It is ideally situated for the centre of Barcelona and even has a large supermarket next door for any provisions you may need. The owners provided a welcome gift of a lovely bottle of red wine for us (excellent quality too!!). Juan who met us was very friendly and helpful explaining to us everything we needed to know about the apartment and also showed us the folder of restaurants and things to do, which was very useful. All in all, a brilliant and very convenient place to stay in Barcelona - highly recommended!!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay in this apartment. It was beautifully decorated, spotless, and very quiet. The view out the balcony doors was into a large charming courtyard. It felt like a private neighborhood.The bathrooms had good water pressure and hot water. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils, and the owners provided a nice bottle of wine and coffee for us. I loved the many artistic and personal items throughout the apartment. Those qualities alone would have made me very happy. In addition, it was in a perfect location - 1 block from the metro and cab stand, 5 minute walk from Las Ramblas, and on the edge of both the Eixample and Barri Gotic neighborhoods. There is a full supermarket next door and a pharmacy within a block. It was a perfect stay!

Excellent apartment in the heart of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in the heart of Barcelona and you couldn't ask for more it is spotless & has everything you need from a ironing board to bottle opener. The information we received from Bea / Stephen & Diana was second to none also we were met at the apartment by Juan who was more that helpful in every way possible. If you are going to stay in Barcelona this is the place to stay as it is only 5 minutes walk from La Rambles & there is a very good supermarket right next door.

Thank you very much Bea & Stephen for letting our family stay at your apartment it was a pleasure.

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was really perfect! Beautiful, very clean, and it had everything we could possibly want including a bottle of wine and coffee! They even left beach towels for us to use. Elevator, quiet, wonderful showers, and felt very safe.

Perfect location near Urquinaona subway/metro stop and easy walking distance to just about everything we wanted to do. The notebook they left with information on the area was so helpful and we found our favorite restaurant of the week following their suggestions. All 5 of us rated it the best place we stayed on our trip to Europe!

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.
