Description from owner


This is a real direct from owner apartment, not another agency one!.

Legal License nr. HUTB-007125-36

That is the reason this unique apartment is so well mantained, elegant and offers anything you could wish or need.

This 2 BR apartment offers you terrace, parking, wifi, cable tv, air conditioning-heating, dishwasher, washer, dryer, and of course rain shower, hairdryer, towels, bed linen...everything is included.

(Beds:main bedroom kingsize bed 200x160cm, second bedroom double bed 200x140cm plus a single bed 190x80 I can add on demand at no cost, and two sofas, one of with is a sofa-bed double 200x140cm).

There is also a cot.

For kids:

Besides the cot and high chair inside the apartment...

On the area, there are maybe 10 playground areas for small kids and toddlers in the 400 meters range (between 2 and 12 minutes walk).

In example, one in the shared garden belonging to the condominio, which you can take a look at from the terrace.

Also the beach promenade is ideal for biking/skating, with skate areas, and there is a bowling/playing area inside the shopping mall (and of course you will get the owner's advices on tons of other things to do in the city).

The area is the city center safest and better comunicated area (Diagonal Mar-Front Maritim), beachfront and with tons or restaurants/bars of all price ranges nearby (including the high school for cooking just in front), steps away from the beach (literally round the corner), with hop on-off bus 50 meters away, city bus even closer and metro (underground stop "Selva de Mar", line 4) only 3 blocks away, in same street. This means i.e. door to door to Cathedral metro i.e. stop takes 16-18 minutes. This means you rest in this not noisy and elegant, safer area, and get in the beach or Rambla Poblenou in a short walk (1 min. to the beach) and get in the rush of other centric areas in Barcelona in a few minutes!.

Bike rental and bus stop are same block, biggest shopping mall in Barcelona 12 minutes walking, and you find lovely spots like Rambla Poblenou or Plaça Prim in a short 15 minutes walk.

There is a big supermarket one block away, but another small supermarket/grocery shop is 25 meters away only.

You may wonder why this apartment has the best reviews in Barcelona:

It is simple: The owner, David, is a splendid Cicerone, he will meet you on arrival personally and take the necessary time (sometimes two or three hours if you are not tired!!) 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 or send messages 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.

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.

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

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 , Cable TV, 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 loud music playing is allowed after 10:00h PM, this is a no partying apartment).

The apartment has capability for 6 people.

Inside the apartment there is babycot and child chair, a stokke bath tub.

The distribution room comes with a big wardrobe, and you find closets in each of the rooms.

Also in the living room you find two couches so that five people can seat relaxed while listening to the music or watching TV.

What comes with the apartment

The apartment is stocked with sugar, oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, coffee, tea, toilet paper, shower gel, etc.

You will receive a complementary bottle of wine on arrival, water bottle (although tap water can be drunk), juice.

The kitchen comes with dining area, and as well you have a table in the dining room and in the terrace

Complete kitchen with dish washer machine, washing machine, independent dryer, toaster, juicer, kettle/boiler, microwave, oven, iron and board.

Getting around

Hop on-off touristic bus stops just 50 meters away from apartment, and underground in same street, only three blocks away (station name Selva de Mar, Line 4). Also bus stop is at 30 meters distance form apartment door, you have a taxi stop at the corner, and if you come by car or plan renting one, secure parking in same building is included, and you have the access to the internal Barcelona highway ring at 200 m.

“Fantastic apartment - only topped by the host!”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2017

From our initial communications with David until check out we cannot fault the experience we had. David was more than helpful on arrival and imparted a huge amount of useful information. He was always on the end of the phone to help with any queries we had, booked several taxis for us, offered sight seeing trips and generally checked in to make sure we had all we need for an enjoyable stay. The apartment was immaculately clean and well stocked with towels, bedding and kitchen equipment, as well as complimentary wine, snacks and fruit on arrival. It had use of a great shared garden too , which our children loved. I was a little concerned about the political situation in Barcelona but David gave us all the assurances we needed and also said he would be with us if we needed him at any time. This was very reassuring with 2 young children - but of course everything was fantastic, particularly our family trip to Camp Nou to see Barcelona win! The apartment is just one block from a beautiful beach and is ideally positioned for the bus, taxi and metro. We preferred to use the bus for trips to the city and the stop was literally over the road. David - keep up the good work - we will be back!!

“Excellent apartment with the perfect host”

Reviewed 26 Sep 2017

Location is perfect for a Barcelona stay. The family friendly beach is on the doorstep and the Poblenou area is a 5 minute walk. David ( the owner ) was amazing! His attention to detail is to be commended. We were shown areas of Barcelona that we didn't know existed. Visit this apartment and you will not be disappointed. I can't wait to return. Thank you David

“All positive - balance between location and price”

Reviewed 9 May 2017

Apologies to the owner for not writing this sooner. Reviews matter to both the traveler and the owner and this owner deserves any and all praise. He was generous and thoughtful. Key factor for me was location / price. This is 2 blocks from the beach (no bars/music at this beach) and we thought with our child we would be there every day after being a tourist. Subway was 3 blocks away and got us everywhere we wanted to go. If you are good with the subway, this place is great.

“Excellent apartment, would highly recommend”

Reviewed 18 Apr 2016

We have just returned from a week's stay in Barcelona at David's apartment. The apartment is superbly equipped and located near a tube, bus and tourist bus stop with a very short ride into the city. The beach is a 5-10 minute walk across the street and has a nice cafe where we spent a few relaxing mornings. David was really helpful and arranged a taxi to and from the airport. Overall we would highly recommend and hope to go back.

“Séjour PARFAIT”

Reviewed 6 Mar 2016

Nous avons séjourné ma femme et moi dans cet appartement pendant 10 jours au mois de Février 2016. Et nous avons fait confiance aux avis de la communauté de TripAdvisor pour orienter notre choix. Et ce choix était EXCELLENT. L’appartement est tout simplement magnifique. L’intérieur : RIEN à reprocher. A notre arrivée, l’appartement était d’une propreté irréprochable. Et surtout ultra équipé. Grande cuisine avec absolument tout ce qu’il vous faut : machines à café, lave-linge, sèche-linge, grand réfrigérateur, cuisinière avec four, micro-ondes, lave-vaisselle, produits de nettoyage, etc. Bref, tout ce dont vous aurez besoin, comme si vous étiez chez vous. Et en plus : corbeille de fruits, eau, café, bouteille de vin, et autres petites attentions très appréciables étaient généreusement offerts à notre arrivée par David, le propriétaire. Le salon et les deux chambres étaient également superbes comme sur les photos, décorés avec gout (Nous avons adoré la déco) et disposant de beaucoup de rangements et d’un grand confort pour partager des moments de convivialité : Literie, draps, couvertures, télé, un large choix de chaines TV (si vous avez le temps pour ça), excellent Internet et Wifi, une collection de DVD… La salle de bain était également très pratique : serviettes propres, produits d’hygiène. Tout était parfait, avec grande baignoire et surtout très propre. Une terrasse ou vous pouvez déguster votre café matinal avec belle vue sur un jardin. Le voisinage était calme et respectueux. Autre atout : L’emplacement. Tout est à quelques minutes à pieds. La station de métro de la ligne 4 (On n’a pas eu besoin durant tout notre séjour d’utiliser autres moyens de transport que le métro), la plage, plusieurs commerces, cafés, restaurants, un grand et joli centre commercial (Diagonal Mar) est à 10 minutes à pied… L’entourage est calme est surtout sécurisé. Mais le vrai point fort de cet appartement est son propriétaire : David. Depuis le tout premier mail échangé, il s’est toujours montré présent et a toujours répondu à nos messages en un rien de temps. A notre arrivée, après nous avoir fait visiter l’appart, il a passé deux heures ou plus à tout nous expliquer : du transport aux différentes activités à faire absolument ou à éviter. C’était notre premier voyage à Barcelone et les conseils de David nous ont été d’une grande utilité pour dresser le planning de notre séjour. Le mec connait la ville comme sa poche et il a pris le soin et le temps de faire un guide pour ses invités ou il a transmis toute sa passion et son amour pour Barcelone. Conseil : prenez le temps de consulter ce guide car vous y trouverez des astuces et des recommandations vraiment très pratiques et introuvables sur les guides classiques. Toujours avec le sourire et la bonne humeur, David se soucie vraiment du confort de ses invités et a vraiment pensé à tout dans son appartement : du café aux parapluies au cas où il pleuvrait. On a apprécié le fait qu’il demande de nos nouvelles durant le séjour pour voir si tout va bien et il a fait preuve d’une grande générosité en nous emmenant à des endroits simplement magiques et inoubliables. En quittant Barcelone, nous avions le sentiment d’y laisser un très bon ami. Barcelone est une superbe ville. Les locations de vacances n’y manquent pas. Vous avez même l’embarras du choix. Mais David est un hôte extraordinaire et c’est ce qui fait toute la différence. Alors nous vous recommandons cette location comme nous l’avons déjà recommandé à nos familles amis et collègues. Nous retournerons chez David sûrement un jour avec plaisir.

“An excellent city based apartment with an outstanding owner!”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2015

I visited Barcelona with my wife and two boys aged 10 and 7 recently. It was my wife and I's first visit to the city in over 18 years! We chose David's apartment because of its location, close to the sea, quiet and safe neighborhood, close to transport into the centre and also of course because it looked so great. It lived up to all those expectations and more. More because of David's keen interest in making sure our stay in Barcelona was the best it could possibly be. I don't know what David's prior working life details are but if he wasn't a concierge at some point I would be very surprised. I would without hesitation recommend to stay here and when we return I will be sure to give David a call! Martin

“Go for it! It's amazing!”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2015

My husband and I together with two kids (2 and 6 years) had a great stay in the biginning of May at David's apartment. First of all, the apartment is beautiful. It is in a great district close to remarkable restaurants, great shopping and the beach. It has everything a mother should need. Including a baby bath, potty, a step for the sink, a high chair, etc. There were some wet wipes as well. The kitchen has everything you might dream of. Including three I think coffee makers. David had a bag of some terrific coffee for us. He also bought us some fresh pasties to greet us and a bottle of wine. It was just what we needed after the flight. David spent enormous amount of time on explaining everything to us - including where to go sightseeing, how to get to places and other. He also prepared a brochure on where to go and what to do in Barcelona and vicinities. I hope you enjoy your stay in David's apartment. It was amazing.
