Exceeded our expectations as our true home away from home.
We stayed for six weeks with our 3 year old. Eloy greeted us with a smile and a helping hand with our many bags outside of the apartment. He had wine, juice, milk, water, olives, treats for our daughter and more when we arrived. After explaining to us the features of the apartment, he helped us identify places to visit, grocery shop, etc. on a map. The apartment was spotless and beautiful. He recently completed a modern renovation of the bathrooms and they look great. Our daughter took the smaller room and we took the master. Our parents visited us and we were comfortable in the room with the twin beds. Although we enjoyed most of our meals out, we also cooked at home and had everything we needed. Pots, pans, dishes, children’s dish ware, appliances were all great. The unit is quiet, the air conditioning works well, and you’ll love the view of the courtyard. Thankfully there is a washer and dryer for long stays. A housekeeper came weekly and did a thorough job - even refilling the water in the Nespresso and leaving folded towels on every bed. One of us worked remotely while there and the Internet was consistently reliable. Eloy was always responsive with any questions or requests. The neighborhood is quiet but convenient to all the places you’ll want to visit. The Sagrada, Passeig de Gracia, Vila de Gràcia, multiple restaurants/groceries/metro stations are all an easy walk away. We really can’t say enough how staying in the apartment helped make our visit to Barcelona easy and memorable. If you have kids, there are also several playgrounds nearby. Thank you Eloy for being a wonderful host. We hope to come and stay again soon!
Wonderful city and lovely landlord!
First of all, ELoy is the most accommodating landlord. He is quick to respond and is unbelievably helpful. He even scheduled a 5:30 am taxi for us (and told me how to do it myself too) He gave us a full orientation on arrival and sent lists of restaurants, all over the city.
The apartment was perfect for us and the guests who visited during our 6 week stay. The beds are very comfortable and while the second bedroom is tiny, it worked fine for a couple for several days. Having cleaning services on a weekly basis was fabulous.
The location of the apartment can’t be beat. It is walking distance to everything and in the best part of Barcelona. Everywhere you look there is another architectural gem. The fresh market is a block away and to get there you pass the wholesale flower market that is a must see and “use” as well. We bought a metro ticket but never used it, instead walking everywhere.
Barcelona is a magical city and this apartment and landlord are a perfect pairing for it
Fantástico apartamento, anfitrión y ubicación!
Nos quedamos un mes en este cómodo apartamento, equipado con todo lo necesario para nuestra estadía y muy limpio.
Eloy es un magnífico anfitrión, su trato es muy amable y hospitalario. Desde el momento mismo de nuestra llegada nos ayudó con el equipaje y nos recibió con refrigerios. Estuvo en todo momento disponible para cualquier consulta o recomendación que necesitásemos.
La ubicación del apartamento es muy buena, se puede caminar hasta muchos de los sitios turísticos y está rodeado de locales comerciales, supermercados, panaderías, pastelerías y restaurantes.
Definitivamente lo recomendaríamos para quien desee una maravillosa experiencia en Barcelona!
outstanding location, excellent property
My family of four stayed at Eloy and Maria's property in the Eixample for about two months. They were excellent hosts and the apartment was absolutely great. It was clean, very bright, spacious, well appointed, and tastefully furnished. The air conditioning was highly appreciated as we stayed during summer months, when Barcelona can be sticky.
The location in the Eixample was ideal for convenient access to public transportation (buses, Metro, regional train) as well as several Gaudi attractions. It was in the city, close to all the food and shopping conveniences, but away slightly from the hordes of tourists. There is a nice market that is 5 minutes on foot for all your fresh food needs. There are several craft beer stores in the area, restaurants abound, and two superb gelateria's within 10 - 15 minutes walk.
The focal point of the apartment is the bright, living/dining room with nice furnishings. An enclosed balcony is attached to the living room. The windows can be opened to look down into the cute courtyard that is a common feature of the Eixample district. The large bedroom is spacious and nicely furnished. A smaller bedroom with two beds is great for young kids to share and the third bedroom is quite a bit smaller but still very comfortable. For a family of four, it was nice to have a full bath and a spare half bath as necessary.The kitchen has all that is needed to cook your meals and enjoy apartment living including fridge, oven, stovetop, microwave, dishwasher, hot water maker, several different coffee making appliances, and more. The laundry room near the entrance with modern washer, dryer, and ironing supplies was also greatly appreciated.
My interaction was mostly with Eloy. He was very responsive to all our requests and made sure that the apartment was in tip-top shape for the duration of our stay. He gave us a great overview of the apartment, features, city attractions, transportation, and other information.
Great hosts, perfect location.
The hosts were responsive, courteous, and always willing to help answer questions as they came up. A decent kitchen that allowed us to cook for ourselves several nights a week. The location couldn't have been better: a quiet neighborhood that was not overrun with tourist (at least in February); a short walk to four different metro stations that gave quick access to every part of town; right between, and a short a pleasant walk to, both the old quarter and to Gracia; a few blocks from the 5th Avenue feel of Passig de Gracia; a block away from a massive and varied market full of fresh vegetables, meat, cheese, and friendly vendors; and a half dozen fantastic bread shops within a block or two. Just what we were looking for.
The Perfect Home
Leaving this beautiful flat was hard! A beautiful apt with a delightful host. Eloy is very warm and welcoming. He greeted us and had wine, water, and snacks waiting for us. All of his communications before and during the trip were very helpful and informative. The apt itself is lovely. Beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and well stocked with everything we needed. It was the perfect location for our stay and a great place to gather and relax between jaunts. We will miss our HomeAway in Barcelona!
