The Space

This is the place to be in your holidays in Barcelona!!! It is located only 10 steps from Barceloneta beach, being this neighborhood one of the most emblematic ones in Barcelona and right on the center. The fishermen´s old barrio... its small streets and buildings speak for themselves. This beach has got a great atmosphere during daytime as well as nightlife.

La Casita del Mar is a colorful and cheerful flat perfect for a couple getaway or families whose target is a nice, sunny, chillout beach-city quality time.

La Casita del Mar is a 2 bedroom apartment. It is newly renovated!! The master bedroom has a double bed, the other one with bunk beds! Equipped with a fully kitchen,vitro ceramic stove, oven, microwave, electric juice maker, tea boiler, coffee maker, etc. and a nice bathroom.

Plenty of light in the whole apartment and specially located in a very quiet street. Just around the corner from the beach, lots of restaurants, supermarkets and shops all around. 10 minutes away from the famous Ramblas and Plaza Catalunya, El Born and Gothic quarters.

Close to every public transportation: bus stops 1 block away and an 8-minute walk to the nearest metro stop!

Choose this fantastic apartment for a unique, unforgettable stay!

  • Great location and nice apartment! Organization with Ernesto and Sonia was very easy, so that we didn't have any problems with checking in or out. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and some goodies were in the kitchen and fridge. We can recommend the apartment and the hosts! Thanks again!

  • Arrived a little after noon on Friday to find Ernesto doing the final cleaning of the apartment. He gave us some tips on the local area and we were on our way.
    You seriously cannot get any closer to the beach than this apartment. Within 20 steps you can be on the sand, and in 50 steps in the Mediterranean. Was really a perfect location. Beach nearby, with a lot of restaurants, stores and bars in the area as well.
    Ernesto & Sonia were very helpful during the stay, giving us some tips on places to go, and even calling our taxi for us so we could get back to the airport Monday morning.
    The apartment itself is clean and functional, really perfect for a small group of 2-3 people, or perhaps a family of 4 at most. Everything worked great (kitchen, hot water, shower, etc). It was really a perfect weekend retreat and a great base of operations to see Barcelona. Just wish we had had more time to explore this beautiful city!

  • The apartment is perfect. The location is the best place to stay in Barcelona, a step from the beautiful beach and surrounded with great restaurants, bars and beach clubs. We would recommend this place to anyone who travels to barcelona and enjoys the relaxed, beachy lifestyle. Sonia and Ernesto are great hosts, very friendly, helpful and fun. We were lucky enough to enjoy a Spain World Cup game over their local tapas and sangria with them.

  • Sonia and Ernesto were the perfect hosts. The apartment was lovely and so close to the beach and many restaurants. We loved having coffee and breakfast at the beach every morning. The apartment is a short walk from both a bus line and the metro. It made traveling about Barcelona very easy.

  • Sonia et Ernesto sont vraiment très sympathiques ! Ils nous ont accueilli et donné toutes les explications pour notre séjour. La Casita del Mar est vraiment à 30 secondes de la plage et le quartier est très calme. Tout est pensé dans le moindre détail et nous n'avons manqué de rien. Nous ne pouvons que recommander cet endroit pour vos séjours!!

  • We were warmly welcomed by our host Ernesto on arrival. He let us in, showed us the appartment, and suggested things to do while in the city. Ernesto offered to meet us later together with Sonia but we had already made plans for the day. During our entire stay, Sonia and Ernesto were very attentive. Due to our busy schedule we didnt get the chance to meet Sonia personally, but she made sure to keep in touch by mail en text. I appreciated that very much! The appartment itself is fully equipped as advertised, it was clean, properly maintained and nicely decorated. No funky smells either, internet/Wi-Fi was working well. We could not find anything disappointing and/or below expectations concerning the appartment. It is literally located a stone's throw away from the Barceloneta beach & boulevard. Great for a beach-front breakfast after a sporty run or sunset dinner & drink. If you wish to veer off to the city, public transportation is near, with the nearest bus stop within one minute's walking distance. You can alternatively walk to the Barceloneta metro station in about ten minutes, but quite honestly it isn't even necessary to take the bus or metro at all. A leisurely stroll along Port Vell via La Rambla to Placa de Catalunya takes about thirty minutes. We also took some time to relax indoors (in the appartment) and even though it's situated in the middle of touristic area, even with doors and windows open, it was remarkably quiet! Great for reading a book or dozing off for a siësta. At night the street of the appartment and the surrounding areas are amply lit so you feel safe. If you're considering to visit Barcelona, I know of a place where you can stay that I highly recommend ;)

  • Location, location, location!! Picking La Casita del Mar really made our vacation an even more incredible experience. The apartment was so well located that we could essentially walk everywhere within 10-20 minutes. It had everything we needed. We established a routine for cooking, touring, resting in the middle of the day on the beach, then going back out for more touring. We stayed for 9 days. We even did our laundry! It was a home away from home. We hated to leave!! Sonia and Ernesto were amazing!! Such nice people, to the core, big hearts, loving and very responsive to our every needs. If we needed something, we'd text them and they'd respond immediately. We would recommend La Casita del Mar with the highest grade.

  • We, me and my two childern, had a very pleasant stay with Ernesto and Sonia. The house is perfectly located near the beach, we have been there every day after visiting the city. Sonia and Ernesto make you feel as you are a very good friend of them, witch was very nice. Next time we visit Barca, we will defenitely book this house again.
    Also places to have diner and the supermarkt were near the house. We had a very pleasant stay and were sorry we had to go home.

  • We were so pleased to have picked this apartment. It's ideally located very close to the beach in the lovely La Barceloneta area; lots of handy shops and restaurants etc. It's really nicely appointed and perfect for a family with 2 children; comfortable beds and nicely sized. Ernesto & Sonia were very friendly, helpful and accommodating as hosts. Definitely a good choice. Thank you!
