Interaction with Guests
I´m renting my room for long periods of time, as I'm not in Barcelona during the summer. However, you´ll be around my lovely roommates. Keep in mind that we are very active, and we tend to be outdoors most of the day, so you´ll have a quiet and relax space to rest after a long day around the city.
No smoking inside the house, but you can smoke outside in the balcony or in the top terrace.
Washer available, just make sure to have a full load clothes when using it.
Please turn off the lights when you leave the house, or your room.
You have full access of the kitchen, just make sure to leave it as you found it :)
In regards to the deposit, we do not keep the deposit. Airbnb puts it on hold until your stay is over. We have never had any problems with the deposit, and they have always been returned in full to our guests. :)
Do not hesitate to ask us if you have any questions! We'll try to meet all your needs and make you have an amazing stay in the beautiful city of Barcelona :)
About the Host, Francesca
We are three creative, energetic and respectful girls in our mid-late twenties, that have traveled around the world and lived in more than 7 different countries. We have designed most of our furniture, and like to change it around every other (website hidden) is awesome.
Francesca has studied communications at Simon Fraser University, Canada, and has worked in communications since 2009. She currently works in a local radio station, organizes cultural events and expositions, while finishing her second degree in Architecture. She has a crazy time schedule and loves it! She doesn't drink or smoke, and goes for a run or bike ride every morning. Bicycles are awesome.
Laura is working on her final project in order to graduate from Architecture. She's traveled around the world, and has great passion for photography, design and music. She organizes art expositions and collaborates with various architecture studios. Notice, she makes amazing hummus and loves to wash dishes. She knows the best boutiques in the city, and some secret spots to buy second hand clothing.
Anna is an Interior Designer that took off to New Zeland and Australia and now she's back to conquest Barcelona's coolest design scene. She loves cooking (specially desserts), photography and music (she occasionally plays drums in a studio far away from the apartment). Her secret hobbies are origami, and making up cool english Cali style sentences. We have to admit she has the coolest bike in town.
Since we can no longer travel as much as we would like, due to our compromised lives in Barcelona, we've decided to let travelers come to us. We enjoy sharing our space with open minded, easy going and responsible travelers. In our home you will find the perfect balance between calm and excitement. We encourage you to share your culture with us, but if you rather be on your own, we're cool with that too.
