*WE OFFER OUR GUESTS this great apartment. Its location in Barcelona is ideal because it's very close to the "Playa Nova Icaria" and there are only a few minutes to the historical center.
The 1992 Olympics brought about a big change in this area, before the seafront was made up of warehouses and docks, but now it has been transformed into one of Barcelona's most modern and architecturally ambitious districts.
The area has two beaches, Icaria and Bogatell, both of which are increasingly popular and house quite a few beachside bars and restaurants. The beaches are all well equipped with toilets, showers, first aid and changing rooms for the disabled. These beaches are quite popular for windsurfers and there is a sailing school if you want to prove your dexterity on the sea. If you want so sunbathe in peace then I recommend you walk up the beach away from the port, where there are far less people, although you may find yourself stumbling across a few nudists!
By night the area comes alive and people swarm to the huge strip of restaurants and well-known clubs such as Shoko and Baja Beach that look out onto the port, all under the watchful eye of a big golden fish designed by Frank Gehry for the 92 Olympics.
Bogatell is less modernized than the nearby Villa Olympica and still has remnants of old Barcelona, small Catalan cafés and narrow roads. If you want to escape from the crowds then this a good place to head and cool down after a long day at the beach.
Avenida Icaria which runs through Bogatell to the Olympic village is also where you will find the Vila complex which consists of restaurants, shopping, a supermarket and a 15 screen cinema that shows all the newest releases in their original language - great if you fancy watching a film in English.
The area is for the most part quite modern and enjoy the relative quiet of an out of town location, but also have the beach and the Olympic village for entertainment.
Both Bogatell and Ciutadella Villa Olympica have metro stops on the yellow line that will take you into the centre of Barcelona in 10-15 minutes. You could also walk to Las Ramblas in about half an hour if you feel energetic. Otherwise taxis are cheap and easy to get around the Olympic Village.
Other sights of interest are the Parc Ciutadella which is surprisingly tranquil most of the time and a lovely place for a picnic. In the park you will also find the Barcelona Zoo which is always a favorite with children and adults alike (be sure to catch the dolphin show).

RESPECT FOR NEIGHBOURS. As the apartment is very quiet, for the centre of Barcelona, or any part of Barcelona, for that matter, I ask visitors to be mindful of noise levels.
Arrival day: Late check ins (21h00 to 9h00) have an additional fee of 35 euros.
Le logement était tout à fait conforme à la description, très agréable, spacieux et bien équipé.
L'appartement est bien situé, proche de la mer, du métro, du zoo, d'un supermarché.
Je recommande sans hésitation.
Although I did not meet Jaesse in person, the host who greeted me was quite nice and accommodating when I arrived. The flat was clean and the host was very nice and thorough about showing me around. To Jaesse and the host's credit, they also managed to get me into the place on very short notice, so that was greatly appreciated.
** Note that Vila Olympica has a very quiet, sterile, and suburban feel to it, compared to the central areas of Barcelona! If you're looking for action, stay away from this area!!
** BE CAREFUL WITH YOUR CAR! Mine got towed for leaving it downstairs for 20 min, while I brought groceries upstairs, costing me 170 EUR! The next night, when I found free parking, it got broken into. BARCELONA IS NOT CAR FRIENDLY.
Our stay with M.Merche was fantastic, she was very friendly and was there on time to let us in. The apartment is very spacious and well kept, in a great location near a supermarket and the beach, with easy access to the metro and many of the sights - unfortunately we were slightly late in checking out, and when her daughter came to clean and check us out she was very friendly in doing so, without fuss. When I next come to Barcelona this apartment will be the first place I will try to book again! What a great place and a city to be in, highly recommended!
Jaesse was the perfect host. Even though I didn't get to see him, he organized Mrs. M. to welcome me and give me the keys to the apartment.
I was super late on check in day since my luggage couldn't find it's way back to me so easy... AND at the end I got 1 out of the 2 pair keys with me back to Austria. Both times she was super nice, she didn't complain at all and I felt not only relieved but very grateful as well.
The apartment itself is BEAUTIFUL. So clean, so welcoming. You think the photos are nice? Wait until you see it live!! 7 minutes walking distance to the sea, air conditioning, everything someone could need (towels, full equipped kitchen, wash machine, wireless internet, etc...). I'd recommend to ANYONE.
We were 4 people. Enough space for everyone if you know each other and can organize who will use the bathroom when.
Next time in Barcelona, I will be back in this apartment for sure.... IF I get the chance to book it and IF Mrs. M. is ready to trust me with the keys again. Hahaha.
We spent 25 days at the apartment. The apartment is really well located, well-decorated and well equipped. We felt right at home there. It was very convenient to cook at home. Baby chair and toys were the helpful gift. The neighborhood is perfect. Tangerine trees, several cafes, fine butcher and a playground nearby.
The only bad thing is the road noise, (the windows looks to the crossroad) but it was not a problem for us, as we also live next to the road at home :) Otherwise the house is quiеt.
The host was nice and friendly, helped us with the taxi. Thanks a lot for a nice staying!
Our apartment was cancelled last-minute by the owner/agency (not AirBnB) and we contacted Jaesse for help. We have 2 young children and were flying out the next day! Jaesse found us 2 perfect apartments - we spent 5 nights in this one (and 2 nights in another near Las Ramblas). Apartment was perfect for us - near the beach and walkable to town along the beachfront; also v close to a Metro and supermarket. The area was safe and well-heeled. Apartment was tastefully furnished with lots of space and equipment, incl a travel cot and bedding and bag of toys. Huge TV and well-equipped kitchen but we barely used either. Some traffic noise but it blends into the background really. Really happy overall with this our first AirBnB experience :-)
