Vanilla Born, next to Yacht harbor

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Carrer de Llauder, Barcelona, Catalonia 08003, Spain

The Space


A beach-house style arty and luxurious apartment with wooden floors, spacious and light.
Soon to be a music production studio.
Best area in Town. Located next to the famous harbour of Barceloneta and the authentic Borne. “Vanilla” - named after the sandy-creamy colours inside our entire home.
In 18th century House.
Living in this area you have the harbour, the sea and the old city - all in one. It's a wild area but we love it wild.

The apartment is one open space, divided only by flowing curtains.
99 m2.

3 important facts:

- no air-condition but fresh winds coming in from the sea, and the hot sun shines around the windows but not into. Fans in every corner, heating, comfi warm in winter.
- please don’t expect a noiseless beach house next to sea. We live in a wild city. Compare it with New York, London, Paris.

- not suitable for babies.

  • Very cozy, bright apartment, decorated in a minimalist style, but has everything you need for a romantic vacation in Barcelona. Very nice hosts, responsive to the slightest request (Oscar, a special thanks for the iron and kettle :)). Convenient location - just minutes from the beach of Barceloneta, and the Gothic Quarter. Large bed behind the curtains, a bottle of wine as a compliment from the hosts and high-speed internet - everything you need to spend an evening after a wonderful day in Barcelona.
    6 nights passed like one.Highly recommended!
