About this listing
Live like a local in Barcelona's most chic district when you rent this effortlessly luxurious two-bedroom home, blocks from Passeig de Gracia.

Local permit: HUTB-006789
You wake up to the sun rising over Barcelona's most famous buildings, gently streaming in through the window of your fifth-floor bedroom. You pad across the marble floors in your slippers and brew a cup of coffee, then head to the rooftop terrace. Look left and see the spires of Sagrada Familia rising above the rooftops. Look right, and over the top of the Conservatory of Music you can make out a glimmer of the sparkling Mediterranean, calling you to make every day a beach day.
From up here, life in Barcelona is good.

Interaction with guests
I'm an Aussie who's lived in Barcelona for almost two decades. I love making people feel at home in my adopted city, especially if it means saving you from an overpriced meal at a tourist trap. I, along with my reception team, am here for you -- unless you'd prefer us not to be! Think of us as your holiday concierge, on-call if you need a restaurant recommendation or to stash your bags for a few hours because your flight arrives or leaves at a weird time. We've got you covered.
We're right in the heart of the chic L'Eixample district, whose beautifully planned architecture is world-famous. Just outside the old city, Dreta de l'Eixample's leafy boulevards are home to Gaudí stunners like Casa Batlló, Casa Mila and La Pedrera (not to mention the distinctive Conservatori Municipal de Música de Barcelona, visible from the bedroom windows). High-end shopping on the ritzy Passeig de Gracia is just a few blocks away, with Plaça de Catalunya and the famous Las Ramblas located less than 20 minutes' walk from our building.
Whatever it is you came to see in Barcelona, I'll bet it's within easy walking distance of the house. Sagrada Familia? 13 minutes. Passeig de Gracia shopping? Right around the corner. The Gothic Quarter? Psh, you can see it from the terrace!
If you want to venture farther out, it's easy to do on public transport. The nearest metro stations are the L4-Girona stop (yellow line) and the L5-Verdaguer stop (blue line). The L4 will take you to the beach (3 stops), while the L5 will get you to Sants railway station (4 stops) or anywhere else you want to go. And the Mercat de la Concepció bus station is just minutes away, with buses serving Madrid, Seville and basically everywhere else.
From the airport, a cab will run you about €45, or take the Aerobus to Plaça Catalunya, which is a short 20-minute walk from the building.

Welcome home! You could call me a globetrotter - I’ve lived and travelled all over the world, from Australia to Zimbabwe. My adventure with Airbnb started in 2010 when I started sharing my spare rooms with other travellers.
I put down roots in Barcelona, where I strive, with help from my team Karolina and Maria to show guests from across the globe the best of this city. We currently offer 25 luxury apartments, but my approach to hosting is the same: be like a guest's friend in the city, sharing my insider knowledge and keeping them away from tourist traps!
Once you hit that "book" button, your good time is our responsibility. So kick up your feet and grab a drink from the fridge (which we keep stocked). Our apartments aren’t just a place to lay your head...they’re your next home-away-from-home.
Gracias, Damien & Team.
