This is a wonderful apartment! We were met by the owner as the taxi dropped us off. The apartment is one floor up, but there is a convenient elevator so we did not have to carry luggage up the stairs. Juan gave us local information and a walk-through of all the amenities in the apartment. The modern kitchen (even included an induction cooktop) was stocked with soft drinks, a bottle of wine, snacks and plenty of bottled water. We were two couples traveling together, so the two full bathrooms were appreciated and the space was very comfortable. We also appreciated the washer/dryer. The apartment is within easy walking distance to the beach, and also near the marina with numerous restaurants. Also an easy walk to the Barcelona Zoo. We took the "Touristic Bus" tour of the city on our first day, to get our bearings, and then explored on our own the next day. Barcelona is a lovely city, very much connected with the sea, and our only regret was that we did not have more time to spend. Hoping to return some day!

Spent the Easter weekend at the apartment. Genuinely warm welcome from Juan when we arrived including providing some food for our first evening. Area is quiet but transport into the centre of Barcelona very straightforward by metro or bus. Beaches and restaurants on the Olympic port an easy walk. Overall an excellent stay and will hopefully stay again when we return to Barcelona.

The cheerful friendliness of the host/owner, the decor /cleaniness of the appartment and tranquility of the surrounding area made our stay heavenly... We nearly didnt want to leave the appartment . We were only there for a couple of days .. should have booked more days ... .. This apartment exceeded my expectations. The apartment was clean, hotel style amenities were placed in the bathroom and the kitchen was stocked with the necessary items. Planning my next trip... ... Oh and it was good value for money ... I would definitely recommend...
Juan -thanks for your assistance throughout our stay... You went the extra mile for us ...

We had an excellent 6-night stay at Juan's lovely apartment. You get the feel of living in a quiet, local neighbourhood and central places such as Ramblas are only about 10-15 minute bus journey away, which was fine with us. The beach is a 5 minute walk and has several restaurants. All amenities were provided in the apartment as advertised and Juan's local knowledge was very useful. Local supermarket had a good collection of meats and wine and a nearby bakery was good to visit as well. We didn't bother much with the metro, plenty of convenient bus routes from nearby stops. Thanks, Juan for your help! You have a lovely apartment.

My wife and parents all had a great stay at this apartment. The apt is perfect for two couples or a family. Juan, the owner, could not have been nicer or more helpful. He met with us on arrival and explained in detail how to use all the appliances.
The apartment is clean and well equipped to host senior travellers (bath handles, easy access to appliances, 1st floor..). Travelling with my parents (75 and 77) requires to consider these details.
I'd definitely recommend this apartment for a wonderful stay in Barcelona.

Definitely, the pictures did not do justice to the apartment. A very spacious place, clean and quiet. The apartment is super comfortable and had everything we needed.
We enjoyed our stay and how close we were to Icaria beach and other tourist areas.
Will recommend the place to our friends and relatives for a great stay in Barcelona.
Thanks for your recommendation! We consider it an honor that you like our home enough to recommend it your friends. Come back soon!

“Wonderful experience in a perfect location”

My family (2 adults and 2 children) spent four lovely days in Juan's home. The apartment had been recently remodeled and furnished comfortably. Everything was sparkling clean and well maintained.
The location could not be better. Yet with the excitement of the beach area just two blocks away, this home was perfectly located in a quiet pedestrian street.
Staying in the apartment helped to make us feel part of a lovely Barcelona neighborhood, and everything we needed was nearby. The residential area was packed with friendly locals and had plenty of cafes and restaurants within a walking distance. There was a nice bakery, a pharmacy, grocery stores and even a small market with local fresh products just 50 m. from the apartment.
Getting to the main city attractions (Sagrada Familia, Ramblas, Gotic quartet..) was quick and easy. There was a convenient stop of the Bus Turistic just 2 minutes walking, two public bus stops and a metro station just one block away.
Juan, the landlord, was prompt and helpful to answer all of my questions before our visit. On our arrival, he welcomed us in person and spent plenty of time explaining us how to use all the appliances. He also gave us a lot of useful information and advice about the city.
We highly recommend this rental and would stay here again
