A wonderful apartment in a very central and very safe location! Only 10 minutes on foot to Plaza Catalunya and Las Ramblas and in the middle of the Eixample neighbourhood. This one-bedroom apartment is situated on the top floor of a building datin …
Dear Annemarie, thank you for your charming, quirky apartment. We felt very much at home and enjoyed listening to your CD's and browsing the bookshelves. It was a pleasure to come home every night to the warm and inviting atmosphere you have created.
We loved loved loved Barcelona and found something exciting to do every day. Barcelona appears to be a very easy city in which to have a home - you are so kind to share it with us. Best wishes
John and I are completely smitten with Barcelona. We've spent 6 fascinating days exploring the sights within and also a day at Montserrat. It was major plus to come home to your home and relax and discuss the events of the day. The apartment is very comfortable and visually dynamic - love the art and room colors - and the terrace was an added bonus. Food and wine in the neighborhood were great. We will be back.
Dear Annemarie, thank you for your lovely apartment in this lovely part of town. We enjoyed our stay (albeit without luggage for the first half). Thanks to Martin we discovered how great Flamant restaurant was (the atmosphere, and food too). Also, your stocked up bookshelves kept us informed (the 24 great walks of Barcelona) and engaged (Amin Malouf's Samarkand amongst others). Hope to return someday soon.
Glen and I have greatly enjoyed our stay in Barcelona and are so grateful that our vacation was able to be spent at your apartment. We felt right at home here and appreciate the attention to detail you had to providing tips for restaurants and places to see whilst we were here.
Thank you for making this easy for us. We are officially jealous of what you have in Barcelona.
We have had a wonderful week here in Barcelona. Your apartment has been perfect, we love the location.
We have enjoyed the local shops and the restaurants. The weather has been perfect for walking and we have done a lot. A restaurant we really enjoyed is Cornelia, Valencia 255. Many thanks
Thank you for providing us with such a perfect place to stay in Barcelona. Love your art, decor, tips for exploration etc. You've given a lot of thought in creating a lovely home.
We enjoyed a two week stay in this comfortable apartment in the left Eixample. It's location at Valencia and Casanova was ideal for our exploration of Barcelona. There was a nearby market and many small grocery stores, bakeries, wines stores, cheese and ham shops, and other amenities within very close proximity to the apartment. The bed was firm, but not uncomfortably so. The shower was roomy. The only complaint we had about the bathroom was a lack of adequate places to hang our wet towels. Since it rained quite a bit during our stay, the terrace wasn't an option. The kitchen is fully functional, but small. It took some careful planning to cook a meal due to the small space, but we managed just fine. Within close walking distance is a wide selection of restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. We enjoyed a number of them, particularly Paco Meralgo and the Cremerie Toscana. We also had fun at Mont Bar, a suggestion of one of Annemarie's friends as a place we could meet on Sunday with a group of friends.
My husband and I spent a few days in Annemarie's apartment in August 2012. We were there for my husband's birthday and the city was a perfect place for a celebration! Whatever one might be into, from beautiful architecture, vibrant culture, exciting nightlife and partying, relaxing beaches, great food...it is all there! We truly enjoyed our stay and will most likely go back.
The apartment's location in a typical neighborhood is great as a cultural experience, since you are surrounded by locals, going about their daily lives. It is in relatively close distance to a couple of subway stops, which was very helpful. The public transit in Barcelona is great, extensive and efficient. The apartment looks exactly as the photos show. It is a great place for 1-2 people. Our favourite place was by far the patio, especially on these hot summer nights. The sitting area surrounded by plants is lovely. Speaking about the heat: this was a very hot summer and the place can get quite hot, despite the air conditioning unit located in the living room. A ceiling fan in the bedroom or a second air conditioning unit would definitely bring some much needed relief on days when the outside temperature can easily go above 40 Celsius. The place is clean and it definitely has a very cozy feel. Truly offers that home like experience, much different than a standard hotel room. There are a few grocery stores and numerous restaurants within few steps away.
The place would greatly appeal to travelers like us who prefer to mingle with the locals, rather than be surrounded by other tourists in a hotel. I also must say that Annemarie's assistance during our pre-booking communication was great. She was prompt and informative. Also, she was gracious in dealing with a mis-communication regarding our arrival time.
We had a lovely stay and are grateful for having had the chance to share Annemarie's home!
Thank you, Annemarie for the use of the apartment for the past week. It is a wonderful home away from home and it suited our needs perfectly. The terrace is such a great space – anytime of the day. Your description of the neighborhood on VRBO is so true – so many wonderful shops and cafes – where to stop and how often is the biggest problem! As well, we never once felt unsafe, which says a lot about Barcelona. Probably wouldn’t want to wander the Ramblas at 2 am, but who would.
Hope to get back sooner than later.
