Interaction with Guests
I try to meet with guests personally at check in and do everything i can to accommodate! From making reservations to suggesting places to eat and go out. We have been known to take our guests sailing, out for drinks or inviting them to parties. Of course now as we have small children there is not as much partying anymore :) We can still point you in the right direction.
The duplex is super central, 50 meters from Las Ramblas. The Boqueria market is close by! The beach and Port is a 10 min walk away. You can basically walk to most of your favorite spots!
The duplex is perfect for guests who want to be located in walking distance from everything and this is where the action is!
The metros Liceu and Drassanes are close by 50 meters away located on Las Ramblas! And there are the popular tour buses located walking distance in Placa Catalunya!

I am happy to assist you with any inquiries about the city or culture.
Petit appartement chaleureux. Parfait pour un couple qui vient a Barcelone pour faire la fête. Idéalement situé pour visiter. Propriétaire super sympa et accueillante, nous a donné de bons conseils sur les bars et restaurants de Barcelone et autres sorties, visites ou expo.
The best part about the duplex is its location. My friend and I walked everywhere from some of the best restaurants to the beaches, sights, Picasso Musuem etc. from the Gothic Quarter. Monica is an incredible host and I highly recommend going to the places and doing the things she suggests (especially food related ;)) such as lunch at la Boqueria market, Kaiku overlooking the beaches, late night bite at Oviso etc. The food experiences MADE it for me because after sigh seeing and walking all day, they were super rewarding. The apartment itself is very clean, tidy, comfortable and minimalist. We very much appreciated the well-equipped kitchen (with basic spices) which allowed us to cook a little something whenever we wished. The only downside for us was the lack of sound insulation from the street outside but being deep sleepers, it was just a small issue and easy to get used to. I'd just note that there was construction going on in the upper floors which woke us up if we slept in but I believe it's a temporary project. Another issue was that the water would begin to get colder at about 10 mins into the shower but again, a fixable issue and quick showers are not too bad when on the go. All in all, I would definitely recommend this place especially because of the location and the host who is super friendly, very reachable if any issues arise and knows all the great places which will make you fall in love with the city!
Accueil très sympathique.
Nous avons passé 1 bon week end, Merci à Monica pour sa disponibilité et ses conseils pour les restos.
Monica was a thoughtful and friendly host, greeting us warmly on our mid-afternoon arrival / check-in was smooth and the apartment was very clean and quite well-appointed for its (small & cosy) size. It was perfectly situated for our 5-night Barcelona stay, for the two of us, and kept us nice & warm on cold Jan nights. Actually it's a remarkably well set out apartment for such a tiny footprint. Thanks Monica, keep up the great work & warm guest service.
The apartment was in a fantastic location right in the centre of Barcelona. You can walk to all the major tourist attractions and there are lots of bars are restaurants close by. The apartment would not suit light sleepers because due to the central location it is extremely noisy especially around mid night.
There is a bed and sofa bed in the apartment we slept on the sofa bed because it was more comfortable than the actual bed. This apartment would be absolutely superb with a small amount of maintenance.
Overall we enjoyed our stay at Monica's apartment in Barcelona.
Superbe appartement très bien situé en plein centre du quartier gothique de Barcelone. La description et les photos sont conformes à la réalité. L'appartement est simple et fonctionnel avec un certain cachet.
Monica est très gentille et toujours disponible. N'étant pas sur les lieux le jour de notre arrivée, une de ces amies nous a gentiment accueillis.
Nous avons apprécié le guide fait par Monica qui renseigne les bonnes adresses !
Monica is a perfect host. She shared information with us pre the trip and spent time with us when we arrived informing us on the many places to eat she liked. We eat in a number of them and all were superb. We turned up early as our flight time had changed and i had forgotten to tell her!! This was no problem for Monica and she dropped everything to meet us. We only waited a short while and had a coffee in a nearby bar. The only issue with the property is the noise! Not sure if it was because it was Christmas but neither of us was able to sleep for noise coming from outside and inside the building. there was lierally only quiet between 4am and 7am. On the last night we even considered moving to a hotel!

I'm French Canadian from Montreal! Studied and worked in Manhattan as an interior designer 8 years before moving to Barcelona in 2004 and making it my home. Being in Europe makes it easy to travel which is great! These days i keep busy on design projects, family fun and having tapas with friends!! Loving it!
