A wonderful apartment, perfect for our family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Carmen’s apartment is fantastic- so clean and well equipped with everything you could need (from beach towels, to kitchen utensils, and table tennis). The rooms are spacious, comfortable and well furnished. The private garden is great with outside activities and both sunny and shaded areas. This leads into the communal garden with the fabulous pool. The children (13 and 9) would have happily spent the whole week there. Although the pool is shared by the other apartments there was only one occasion when another family used it along with us. Gava itself is a small and quiet place but with all basic amenities. The beach is gorgeous with a nearby parade of shops (our children loved the bakers and the ice cream shop). We didn’t hire a car and found the taxi from the airport quick ( about 20 euros). We could then easily catch a bus from just down the road for hassle free transport into Barcelona. Carmen was the perfect host, easily contactable and organised. She left the most lovely breakfast kit ready for us with cereals, crackers, butter, jam, juice and even ice lollies in the freezer. Can’t think of any reason why you wouldn’t have a wonderful holiday staying here! Thank you Carmen.

Ideal for us as a young family (kids age 12, 10 and 6) who wanted to combine beach and city.

  • 5 of 5

The property was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The terrace dining area and large private garden were a bonus. There are not many shops in Gava but the bakery is amazing and the prices there are very good. There is a well stocked supermarket but it is 20 minutes walk away (didn't bother us). There is no bank or cash machine in Gava Mar so be prepared. The beach is clean and was relatively peaceful when we came at the end of October.

Lovely apartment & area

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had everything you could possibly need for a comfortable holiday, including some of our favourite board games! The pool was a good size and cleaned daily and only used by us as it was too cold for the Spanish living in the other apartments! There was a lovely private garden area providing plenty of entertainment for the family. There were even chairs available for you to take to the beautiful beach. Carmen was a very attentive host- she left everything you could possibly need for your first few days- wine, beer, coffee and tea included! She even phoned to warn us there was going to be a general strike on the first Tuesday we were there (we arrived amid the Catalonian vote for independence) but loved exploring the local area and restaurants, so this didn't affect the enjoyment of our holiday at all. Actually the events made going into Barcelona that little bit more exciting and interesting- we saw big crowds but no trouble.

Getting around was easy as the bus stop was so close with a very good, cheap service into Barcelona and around the surrounding area. No car necessary and getting to and from the airport should only cost about £20 if you use the yellow and black cabs.

Would we stay here again? Most definitely! A lovely, well kept, clean and comfortable apartment with plenty of space and entertainment for everyone. Thank you for your hospitality Carmen.

Amazing apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Carmen's apartment. It is a short drive away from Barcelona and Sitges, and is 5 mins walk away from the beach. The L95 bus service outside the apartment goes into Barcelona, and is a great way to get in.

When we made our booking, she was easily contactable and always prompt in her replies. When we arrived, she had given us complementary drinks, snacks, milk and cereal. The apartment well equipped with cooking equipment, linen, and beach items i.e inflatables, toys, beach towels. During our stay, Carmen was easily contactable when we had questions

We had a wonderful stay, and we would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Barcelona.

Perfect location for Beach and City

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place where you can combine Barcelona (for Work or Leisure) and a beautiful beach for relaxing or long walks (more than 1 hour in each direction) this is the perfect destination. Of many years of VRBO rentals in various countries this was absolutely the best experience so far. Thank you

Highly recommended! Absolutely perfect spot, great location and most comfortable property!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place for a family of 5 (3 kids between 1 and 6 years) for a few days in Barcelona.

Location: It is situated 10 mins drive from the airport. There's plenty of parking right in front of the property and private parking if required although we didn't need to use it. (For some reason taxi to/from the airport cost more than renting a car if you are there for a few days).

Gava Mar beach is couple of hundred metres away by walk. It is a wonderful beach of kilometres long of beautiful sandy beach and sea, with a nice beach bar.

There's a parade of local shops few mins walk away, including a convenience store and bakery. A big supermarket will be about 20 mins walk away, or quicker by public transport.. hence a rental car can be handy for local trips etc.

Bus L95 just outside the property takes you direct to/from the city centre.

Property: Exceptionally well designed , with 3 rooms, large lounge/diner with wide open doors to the large terrace that leads to the garden. The apartment is a corner property and has a reasonably big private garden very neat and practical with table tennis and basketball! The garden of the complex itself is huge , securely fenced all round, beautiful green grass and large swimming pool. Kids loved running around and playing.

Interior was immaculately​ clean, well stocked with all the details you can imagine. Trust me you won't lack anything!

Host; Carmen was truly the kindest host we have encountered. She made the place so welcoming and comfortable for us. We arrived late at night and she had the kitchen stocked with basic groceries to make our first day easy. She is very responsive and was a great pleasure dealing with. I cannot recommend her enough.

Overall, we loved it, location is perfect, gives a nice break from the busyness of the city centre yet accessible for day trips and property is so much more spacious than a city flat. The photos on the website certainly do not give justice to the property!

Many thanks Carmen!!
