It is simple: The owner, David, is and explendid Cicerone, he meets everybody and takes the necessary time (sometimes two hours!!) in explaining everything about the city, city surroundings, apartment area, restaurants, supermarkets, prepared food, where to go, how to buy tickets...Not only that, he even comes personally to check if you are ok during your stay, or need suplementary information. The service that the owner provides to his guests has been awarded the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence.

This 80 square m (900 sq ft) two bedroom and one bathroom apartment is decorated with the best pieces, and located at the Barcelona 21st century Front Marítim-Diagonal Mar Quarter, in an astonishing building designed by famous architect Ricardo Bofill.

This high-class apartment includes all details you can imagine, and you only have to cross the street to be in the sand of the beach or at the promenade, and also has the best communications, with bus just crossing the street, hop-on off bus at 30 meters, and underground stops only three blocks away in same street!.

It is remarkable that the area belongs to Barcelona city center, not like other listings, the neighbourhood is exclusive and the area is very safe.

You can enjoy the lovely 'plaça prim barcelona', 'rambla poblenou', museums like 'museu blau' or 'museu can framis' in the area, as well as the biggest shopping mall in the city 'Diagonal Mar', with a big 'Wal-mart-like' inside, as well as all the shopping you might desire, as the area combines contemporary design like 'torre agbar' or 'diagonal 00' buildings and classic architecture.

You also get the best communications within the city, with bus stopping just in front, and underground station “Selva de Mar” only three blocks away, with which in example gothic quarter is reached in only 12-14 minutes, but you also have the relax of this less stressing and safer area, the promenade, the beach, in a brand new quarter with all the services close by.

Where elegance meets contemporary, in front of the mediterranean: that would be the best way to define the Sea Elegance Barcelona Sea apartment.

You can feel the quality in each of the apartment details, with antiques coming from Barcelona, the Pyrenees, Germany and Morocco combined with design contemporary pieces.

The quality of the antiques and contemporary furniture , the Hi-Fi system with blueetooth, Blue-Ray, and a collection of DVD/CD that you can play during your stay, that no way can be found in any rental apartment, the charming terrace with garden and sea views, the high quality electrical installation with several independent lighting modes for a more relaxing ambientation, makes this apartment a unique piece in the Barcelona beach (please note that no music playing is allowed after 10:00h PM).

We will provide you with suggestions on arrival on where to go and what to visit!!. If possible with my agenda, I might take a short half-day tour with you out of Barcelona or inside!!

Barcelona

The apartment is located in the brand new seafront area of Barcelona "Diagonal Mar", you only have to walk down to next corner and cross a street to be in the sand of the beach.

 

There are about 10 restaurants and bars less than 100meters distance, 20 if you walk 200m, etc. 

The barcelona high school for catering/ cooking is 50m away (one or two minutes walking distance) with its restaurant where students cook during their studies very quality dishes at affordable prices. Also very nice recommendation "els pescadors" fish restaurant, at plaça prim about 400m ( less than 12 min. walk). You can have a  two dishes lunch with normal drink/wine plus dessert at the restaurants around from very affordable 7.5€ per person and a simple menu to better 9 or 10€ per person menus depending on the quality, or without menu top quality at els pescadors depending on the wine around 40 euros .

You have a wide range of prices and I will give you my advices. 

 

Anyway you also have prepared food very high quality and very affordable prices to buy here. I will tell you several options, between 100m and 400m distance. 

Dishes for two at another close well known supermarket "Bon Area" (paella, fideua, etc) for a bit more than 1€! (I buy there a lot of times as it is amazing).

 

Food-grocery: Mercadona supermarket (it is biggest spanish supermarkets company, it has everything) is 100m far (less than 3 min!!. Also biggest shopping mall in Barcelona (Diagonal Mar centro comercial) with a big sort of wal-mart inside (alcampo) is about 300m. A lot of shops, restaurants, etc...You have also cinemas there, in spanish language.

Visits in the area:

The beach is just crossing one street (you walk down Provençals to the corner and cross Paseo Garcia faria) to have a swim or a relaxing walk through the promenade. 

Also a nice restaurant there (restaurant boo beach club).

You have rambla del Poblenou with its restaurants and charm only 12 minutes walk, Plaça Prim which is a lovely spot at 10 minutes, and regarding modern architechture you are literally surrounded by that, with Diagonal Mar – Forum buildings, and torre Agbar area.

Museums: you have Nat (Museu Blau) made by famous architechts Herzog-De Meuron, in a 15 minutes walk, and Museu Can Framis also near.

Underground is only three blocks away (a five minutes walk) in the same street, Underground station name "Selva de Mar", yellow line. With that line, in example, you reach the Cathedral (Jaume I station) in only six stops. That is about nine-ten minutes. Also Passeig de Gracia in eight stops. The bus is just crossing the street, and hop on-hop off touristic bus is only 30 meters away!!. Also you have a big secure parking in same building if you come by car.

Also you find several banks and ATM machine at 50/100m distance.

You also have a garden (shared) with children playground, and believe me or not, 10 areas/parks with children playground in less than 400meters distance!!

Should you have a friend or related staying at Barcelona he/she can phone me in order to meet and see the apartment but we have to find a day without guests, of course. Also he/she could give the reservation instead of you.

The apartment is as I have told you and you have seen in the pictures brand new as it was renewed on summer 2012. It has absolutely every small detail you might imagine!.

I already have only a few reviews about the apartment as it takes time, but If you still have doubts after all I've told you, after that you only have to pay on arrival, and with that fantastic price and apartment, I am able to provide references of previous tennants that stayed on rental before I started renting for holidays in case you need.

Also I live very close (it takes me usually 20 minutes to arrive if called), my sister lives next building to the apartment, so do my parents, so well, there is never a problem, but I am there!.

"Great apartment in a great location"

This was our first trip to Barcelona and we weren't sure whether to stay near the center of town or a beach. This apartment was the perfect solution, an easy walk to the beach and an easy walk to a metro station, where frequent trains quickly transported us to the amazing sites of the rest of the city, e.g., the Barri Gòtic and La Sagrada Família. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated and located in a quiet, secure neighborhood. A wonderful tapas restaurant is right across the street and a supermarket is a couple of blocks away.
David is a great host and thinks of everything to help his guests, including beach blankets, umbrellas, an emergency sewing kit, a wheeled cart to carry groceries, and numerous books on Barcelona. David has also put together his own rather remarkable guidebook for his guests with information on using the apartment, sightseeing, and restaurants. He is an excellent source of information about what to see and do in Barcelona and surrounding towns. On our arrival, he had stocked the kitchen with wine, coffee, milk, juice, fresh fruit, pastries, and more! Wonderful treats for tired travelers. We highly recommend this apartment.
