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.

For all check ins after 22:00 there is an extra 20€ extra charge payable to the person in charge of your check in.
I am happy to assist you with any inquiries about the city or culture.
Monica met me at the flat as soon as I arrived. She was super nice and helpful, explaining important facts about the flat and the area. The flat was exactly as described online and there were no problems whatsoever with the property the days I was there. The area in which the flat is situated in literally in the middle of many important parts of the city -- Barri Gotic, the Born neighborhood, etc. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Thanks, Monica!
Thank you Monica for a lovely stay in your apartment. We had a great time and it was a perfect location for our five night stay.
On arrival Tarrah met us and allowed us to leave our suitcases whilst she finished the cleaning. We were then able to return once she was finished. She explained what we had to do with keys, rubbish disposal and any other expectations of the apartment.
It was very clean and provided all the amenities we needed-towels and hairdryer plus some basic cooking ingredients and coffee/tea. The photographs are true as depicted.
The location is great and allowed us to explore every corner of Barcelona just walking around. There are plenty of restaurants/bars/supermarkets and La Ramblas is within 5 minutes walking distance. Also you are close to the Marina which is lovely to see day and evening, 5/7 minute walk. If you continue further you will get to the beach.
Monica also has a recommendation list for things to do and restaurants/bars to go to, which was very useful. A couple of the places we went to, the food was lovely and Ocana in the Placa Reial is great for drinks.
There is a small amount of noise from the bar (9pm-1pm) that runs adjacent to the building. However this did not affect our holiday as we were either out in the evenings or ear plugs muffle the noise.
The street is generally quiet at night and is set back a few streets away from La Ramblas, so you don't hear the noise from there.
On departure, as we had a late flight, we used the Locker services on Career D'Estruc. This cost 6 euros to store our bags for the day, which meant we could still explore Barcelona on our last day, without having to carry suitcases everywhere. This was recommended to us by Monica when booking the apartment.
We will definitely be back to see more of the wonderful city :-)
Monica was punctual and relaxed. We felt stressed as my husband had lost his wallet en route from the airport. She allowed him the use of her telephone to sort things out. She recommended some lovely restaurants. There is great wifi and some really nice CD's to listen to. The apartment is in a great location and we were not bothered by the hustle and bustle of the Gothic Quarter at all. We would definitely stay here again!
This is my third year staying in this charming apartment. It's lovely, well situated near Las Ramblas and the Metro and it's reasonably priced. Monica is a fantastic host, recommending restaurants and being generally helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone visiting Barcelona. The only negative is that it's a noisy area, but some ear plugs can help minimize that.
Die Wohnung ist perfekt gelegen in Barcelona und sehr gemütlich.
Die Abwwicklung war ebenfalls super. Ich empfehle die Wohnung gerne weiter.
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!

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!
