The 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.

Lovely loft fully equipped, 10 minutes of walk from everything but in a quiet block, close to the Guggenheim. Asier and his dad were ready to welcome us and gave us good advices to discover Bilbao

Staying in Asier's apartment was a completely positive experience. It was centrally located so we walked everywhere and the shops are nearby so we got everything we needed to cook in the fully equipped kitchen. What made it even more special was Rafa, Asier's father, who welcomed us. Our two teenage sons thought it was the coolest apartment ever!

We we met by Asier's dad, Rafa, who was incredibly welcoming and informative. He offered to talk to us in French but we managed in Spanish. The flat was very well placed for visiting Bilbao, we went everywhere on foot. It was situated very close to the funicular railway and the Zubizuri bridge. The flat is well designed - with lots of cool features. It was very comfortable - we had our two mid teen daughters with us. They enjoyed down time in the afternoons watching dvds on the big screen TV! I would recommend this accommodation to anyone and we were sad to leave.

This is a great place on a great location, close to all points of interest. We really loved the hidden bathroom :-) All communication went smoothly and we had a very warm welcome by Asier's dad. Would definitely recomend it!

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.
