Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • All the other reviews you see for this place are spot on, and I could write a novella about how much I loved my experience at this apartment, and in the city of Barcelona. Thanks again Libby! I hope to be staying there again soon!

  • Good location in El Born and well equipped. When we needed assistance with a problem our host was on hand to help resolve it.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed for 3 nights at Sam and Libby's. It was a perfectly central location and the apartment itself was clean and spacious. The shower was nice and the kitchenette was a huge benefit. Libby was great to deal with - very helpful with answering questions and friendly. I would recommend this rental to anyone.

  • Libby and Sam live in a neighborhood perfect for visiting BCN- close to restaurants, shops, and metro. In addition to the conveniences, the apartment is kept clean, is quiet, and very affordable. As hosts, Libby and Sam were very available and responsive communicators. They provided me with everything I needed for my stay up front and for six nights I enjoyed being comfortable in a sweet Born apartment. Thank you!

  • We had a great time at Sam and Libby's - it was really centrally located and we were able to walk everywhere. The Born area seemed to have a lot more going on at night and had more affordable (yet still very delicious) restaurants. Libby met us at the apartment and gave us the rundown on how to check out, and was available later on during the trip when we had questions about transportation to the airport.

  • The location was awesome! Right in the middle of everything, but far enough away to get a good nights sleep. Great host!

  • Libby's apartment in Barcelona is located in a very central area where is close to most of the POIs in the city. Libby is a very considerate lady who prepared the room for the guest well. You will really feel like stay at your home while visiting Barcelona.

  • We were a little late for meeting up with Sam but she was waiting patiently at the flat. The place was lovely and in a great area. Sam was very helpful in guiding us to the market and provided us with a map of the area. They were quick and responsive to emails and extremely friendly, they even invited us for drinks on Xmas. It was a pleasure to meet them and they were very professional. I would highly recommend them and their flat.

Hello! I am Libby (on the left) and this is Sam (on the right). As hosts, we are happy to share our home as your home, providing everything you need to conveniently and enjoyably live, relax, savor great meals and explore the local flavor of our adopted home city. We love living in Barcelona for the relaxed and social lifestyle, amazing markets, beach accessibility (for body surfing, picnics, beautiful runs and bike rides) and inspired buildings and living spaces. As big time food lovers, the city’s dual Catalan and international influences city feed us with both an exciting local culinary culture and easy access to Asian, Moroccan, Pakistani, Indian, Latin and South American markets. We live, in particular, in the Born because we find it to be the most beautiful part of the center, as well as the most packed full of resources and inspiringly infused with an inventive and original spirit. This city is built for pedestrians, so strolling is how we get most places we go (work, shopping, socializing, restaurants, etcetera), but when we want to visit a far flung beach or exhibit on the other side of town, we hop on the city's metro system or regional train network (both within 1 - 7 minutes walking distance). Our place is pretty much a turnkey operation, but if there’s ever a problem, we’ve got a handyman on call for you 24/7, as well as a comprehensive list of go-to sources for any query or challenge you might have. All-in-all, we just plain love being based here and think you will, too! We look forward to hosting your stay!
