About this listing
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 here) 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 apartment is on the second floor with no elevator and is very bright.
Castaños neighborhood is very central and yet quiet. There are 2 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.
Just leave it as I left it for you.
There is stuff of my use in the drawers and wardrobes, please respect it and don't be too curious.
There is a wall as a blackboard in the kitchen where and there is all you need to know from wifi code to different phone numbers in case of any need.
Nice apartment in great location. Asier was very communicative and helpful. His father, Rafa, met us and gave us great information on the city and neighborhood. Highly recommend this apartment.
Asier got in touch well before our arrival and made sure we were able to get the keys even though we arrived late.
The pictures and description of the apartment is accurate. The apartment is very nice with Guggenheim and lot of nice restaurants within walking distance.
Asier and his dad was also very helpful with information about local places to visit and information about taxi etc.
All in all, we had a great time in the apartment and in Bilbao and highly recommend this apartment.

Perfect apartment! Clean and cool - just like the picures. It's located in a nice central neighbourhood, close to all hot spots in Bilbao - the old town is a mere 15 min walk away. I recommend it highly! Asier was a great host, always very responsive and helpful, while handling the practicalities smoothly.

Fuimos recibidos por el padre de Asier de una forma muy amigable, gracias por el regalo! y nos sentimos muy bien durante nuestra estancia. El loft es muy bonito y confortable, y aunque a primera vista no lo parezca, está muy bien situado y muy cerca de todos los lugares andando. Lo recomiendo sin ninguna duda.

About the Host, Asier
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 artisan beer, good wine, I love cooking and learning new things all the time. I cannot live without travelling and meeting new exciting people.
