Very comfortable and well equipped flat, everything worked. Photos are accurate. Hosts are very helpful.
Great location if you want a combination of beach and city.
Overall, a very enjoyable stay.
The apartment is really nice and comfortable, conditions are great, however make sure you take a smaller bedroom to avoid street/highway noise as the Air-conditioner was not working. It would have been better to have the host receiving us in-person for our entry to show passwords, cables, on-and off buttons on different equipment, etc. and so to reveal that something is wrong with Air-con. Also, note that there is railway along the beach and a street, however you get to the beach in 5 minutes.
Очень хорошая квартира, просторная, уютная, многофункциональная, со всеми возможными удобствами!! Были небольшие неполадки, как неубегающая вода в ванне и раковине! Отличная кухня, прекрасные кровати, очень удобно жить с детьми! единственный минус - очень тесный гараж, парковаться приходилось с большим трудом, в итоге стали ставить машину на улице! До пляжа 3 минуты, поезда хоть и ходят часто, но абсолютно не слышны и не мешают!Бассейн хороший, но была одна проблема - плохо чистили, иногда не приходили чистить по 4-5 дней! Хозяин прекрасный человек, готовый ответить на все вопросы, во всем помочь, и главное быстро и четко!! Спасибо за гостеприимство, Льюис!! Сам городок интересный, надо лишь пройтись внутрь, тихий, спокойный, уютный и без туристов!!!!
The apartment is great and has many things to recommend it - proximity to rail station and beach (5 mins each), communal pool (very welcome after long day in the city), great balcony with view over the beach and sea, and all mod cons in the kitchen. The listing and photos were accurate and reflected the apartment well.
The distance to Barcelona is perfect - 20 mins on the train to the downtown stations. Also a very easy rail link with one change from the airport. In fact the rail service is fabulous - a train every 10 minutes throughout the day. And then the metro system in Barcelona is equally quick and efficient and easy to get to grips with for a traveller.
We are the kind of family, with two virtually adult daughters, who want to mix it up on holiday with some beach time and some sightseeing in the city, and we were comfortably able to do everything we wanted to.
El Masnou itself is quite a small place and not touristy, another attraction for us. The bar on the beach was fine for a beer or coffee and simple tapas, and there is a strip of bars and restaurants in the port if you like to eat and drink out a lot.
For us, the greater attraction is shopping in the local markets and cooking at home. El Masnou has a fantastic market on Carrer Italia which had everything you needed - seafood, meat, vegetables, ham, bread etc etc. There is also a decent wine store near there. The city has grander versions of course of both markets and wine outlets, which are another great thing about Barcelona itself.
Luis was an attentive host, replying quickly to all communications, and was quick to respond to a small problem that we had, and we would definately come back again. Thanks Luis.
Tolle Wohnung, netter Gastgeber. Schnelle Antworten und reibungsloser Ablauf.
We spent two weeks in Luis’s apartment in August of 2012. First of all, Luis is a very nice guy, cool, easy going, speaks English and quickly answers emails. He showed us around the apartment and gave us tips on how to get to the city, where to go, and what to do. Upon our departure he called a taxi and was flexible with the checkout.
His apartment is GREAT! It does NOT feel like a rental property because it is fully equipped with quality stuff and everything is high-tech. This place will definitely make you feel like home. The apartment as you see on the pictures, very clean and nicely decorated. Beds are comfortable. A/C works well; you can control the temperature to your liking. The kitchen is very nice and spacious with everything you need – everything! … even washer and dryer. Appliances make a pleasure to cook. Leaving room is very beautiful with a view of a sea. The balcony is a perfect place to enjoy your dinner. There is a separate room with the computer and internet. Master bedroom has a king size bed, a large private bathroom and a walking closet. There is another very cute bedroom that comfortably accommodates two people. Also, an extra smaller room that can be used for one person or a child. The apartment has a second bathroom. We stayed there as a family, 4 adults and a child, and felt very comfortable with the space. The pool is a saver if you travel with children!!! Our 6 years old son spent most of his time either at the beach or pool. He was in the pool most of the time. The pool is a nice size and there were a lot of families with kids. The beach is few minutes walk from home. There is an underpass next to the building that takes you to the beach and seaport where you can find a lot of restaurants. The beach was nice, not crowded and had showers. Also, there is a very nice Chiringuito (beach bar) on the beach where I had my coffee every morning. The train station is only a short walk from home; 30 min train ride and you are in the heart of Barcelona. Those who wants to enjoy Barcelona at night, beware, the last train leaves Placa Catalunya at midnight (schedule is different on weekends). By the way, the train (Renfe) is very quiet and will not disturb your stay at the apartment at all.
At first, I was skeptical about staying outside of Barcelona. However, during our stay I realized that it was a right choice, especially if you have a child. El Masnou is a cute and very quiet town that gives you a feel of relaxation. Barcelona is very close to El Masnou so don’t be scared of a thought that you need to take a train.
Thank you Luis! We had an amazing time at your place!
