About this listing
Flat designed like a loft in very nice neighborhood with all amenities. Located within walking distance to the Guggengheim, the Old Town and city centre.
Perfect to reach all sites on foot walking alongside the river. Pleasant and confortable space.
Design and furnished November 2011 in a building of 1886. I did it with an architect friend of mine. The Guggenheim Museum is 10 minutes walking from the apartment, on the opposite bank of the river.
You don't have to leave any deposit, or add cleaning fee. In relation with the arrival and departure time I try to be as flexible as possible, but when new guests are arriving on the same day I need time to prepare the apartment. In these cases, the check-in will be starting from 16.00 hours and check-out before noon.
Private parking is one block from the apartment in case you need it.
Most of the house is one single space, the bathroom and a separate room (for my daughter when I'm there) where there is has a trundle bed.
I love to cook so the kitchen is fully equipped. High speed Wifi. Large flat TV. The bathroom has a shower and a small bathroom, two sinks. On the balcony, in the back, there is a washing machine. The building has elevator. The apartment is on the second floor and is very bright facing south.
Castaños neighborhood is very central and yet quiet. There are 3 good supermarkets within a block away, fresh fruits store, a couple of wine shops, fish shop and some nice bars to enjoy with neighbors.
In the square next to the apartment is the funicular up Hill Artxanda from where a great view of the city can be enjoyed. In Artxanda there are also sports facilities (swimming, tennis, etc.) and is also a great place to enjoy a nature walk.
If you like running / jogging the walk along the river is the most popular area in town and just two blocks away.

I live between Bilbao, Madrid and on the road due to my work. I'm the one with the orange t-shirt, my father next to me in the picture, I asked him to help me to receive the guests when I'm away.
I spend about one third of my time in Bilbao, where I have a daughter in joint parenthood.
I enjoy craft beer, good wine, I love cooking and learning new things all the time. I cannot live without travelling and meeting new exciting people.
