Getting around

The area is centric, by underground 15-20 minutes to the cathedral, but there is no need to move from here (in a 15-20 min. walk there are like 100 restaurants, supermarkets, mall, beach 1 min. away. 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. So you get the best communications with any other city center area at this apartment, being the area safe and not noisy!.

Interaction with guest

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 owner does not use online booking. Please contact them and they will be able to offer you a secure way to pay for your stay. Never pay for your holiday rental by wire transfer (such as Western Union or Moneygram) as this type of payment is untraceable.

“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

“Perfect location perfect apartment great holiday”

We went on a family holiday to Barcelona picked David's apartment and couldn't have chosen any better. Perfect location, perfect apartment, perfect weather, perfect holiday. David was also the most helpful, accommodating owner I've met. Highly recommend Sea Elegance apartments as a place to stay in Spain you wont be disappointed.

“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.

“Good location for beach and city”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2015

We were a family of five and the apartment suited us down to the ground as it was ideally located. The teenagers could get to the beach while we strolled down to the local coffee shops and restaurants. The apartment was clean and well kitted out with everything a holiday maker needs and the owner very helpful - loads of local knowledge. If we return to Barcelona we would be very happy to stay in this apartment again.
