Description

The space

THE APARTMENT

The apartment is on the 6th floor of a modern building, with 4 LIFTS and conceirge overlooking southest, so the house is very sunny. I put a lot of energy in making it a cozy home (also because it's my home the weekends that I'm in Barcelona), not a cold flat for tourists and I really want to make you feel at home from the very first moment.

There is a double bed in the bedroom and a sofa bed for other 2 people in the living room. However, I only accept 4 people on an individual case by case basis, so don't hesitate to contact me anyway if you are more than 2.

Guest access

You'll have access to the entire space and the parking lot located on the basement of the building. Anything you'll find in the apartment is for your use and enterteinment:) My home has everything you would expect to find in a house you'd be living. It includes:

These are the AMENITIES you'll find:

* A fully equiped kitchen
* 32" Flat TV (plus a cable to connect any device with a HDMI plug)
* DVD
* Hi-Fi system, with CD player and USB to plug your Iphone or Ipod
* Air conditioning
* Motorised blinds
* 100 MG WI-FI
* Washing machine
* Dryer
* Dishwasher
* Iron
* Hairdryer
* A cot for those travelling with babies
* Books and CDs to play some music
* An umbrella in case it rains and a beach umbrella if you come during the summer time.
* Complementary shampoo and shower gel, cotton pads and some other toiletries

If you come by car, I have a PARKING SPACE inside the building that guests can use for free.

I also provide, of course, FRESH TOWELS and LINEN. a welcome BREAKFAST PACKAGE with tea, coffee, juice, milk, a cake, bread and FRESH FRUIT.

Interaction with guests

ABOUT ME...

Since I live in Madrid, I won't normally be able to meet you at your arrival, but my mother will. You can check in past reviews how great she is despite not speaking a word of English:) I'm always reachable by email and respond quickly to emails, queries and concerns. Also, I'm always ready to tell you my favourite places in Barcelona!

The neighborhood

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

This is one of the most modern areas of the city, the district 22@, in Poblenou. District 22@ is the innovation district, a quiet area with a lot of space and very, very safe, sorrounded by green areas and on walking distance to the beach. It is also very well communicated with the centre. A quiet neighbourhood made of young people and young families. The charm of a different "Ramblas", those of Poblenou will captivate you... since here you'll feel how is it like being a local in modern Barcelona.

Actually, the entire Poblenou is undergoing since year 2004 a transformation similar to what took place in other Western cities as neighborhoods Williamsburg and Meatpacking District in New York and the conducted by Wynwood Arts District in Miami. I will be happy to show you my favourite art galleries around!

Getting around

HOW TO ARRIVE AND MOVE AROUND

Public transportation connections are:

METRO: the nearest metro stop (SELVA DE MAR) is 2 blocks away. Line 4 will take you in 8 minutes you'll be in Jaume I (Born, the Picasso Museum, Santa María del Mar) and in 12 minutes you'll be in Passeig de Gracia, just a few meters away from La Pedrera.

BUS: Bus no. 7 is in front of the building and goes to the city centre as well, while bus 46 drives you to Poble Sec and Paral.lel. At night, the night bus no. 7 stops on the corner of my building, so that you don't have to use taxis. On the weekends, the metro works all night in Barcelona!

TRAM: Tram can be useful to get to Sant Adrià del Besos and from there take the train to the beach towns to the north of Barcelona, such as beautiful Tossa de Mar and gorgeous Sant Pol de Mar, both former fishermen villages. Or you can take it on the other direction to Glories and there change to the metro going to Plaça Catalunya.

Other relevant distances are:

AIRPORT: about 50 min with Aerobús + metro
TRAIN: 30 minutes from Sants Estació / 15 minutes from Estació de França
BUS: 20 minutes from Estació del Nord

Please note that transportation time is calculated since the moment you take the first metro/bus downtown. Once you'll book, you'll received detailed directions to get to the apartment, including maps.

All in all, you'll have so many options to get downtown and around.

Other things to note

Before booking, please send me an email introducing yourselves a bit (i.e. who you are, what you do, your purpose of the trip... I don't know, the kind of things you'd like to know from someone that's going to stay in your house). Knowing you better will also help me to give you some tips of what to do and what to see in Barcelona. I'm an expert on exploring cities in an off-the-beaten track mood and I will be happy to help you to discover the real Barcelona! In the meantime you can take a lot at all the sites I've listed in the map!

I look forward to meeting you, I'm sure you won't regret it!


House Rules

I have very little rules, but I expect guests to respect them:

* Make sure to deposit garbage in the garbage room (located in the ground floor of the building, besides the lifts)
* Please leave the apartment as you found it (no dirty dishes or dishes in the dishwasher) and if something is broken, tell me, don't wait for me or my mother to find it out... it's very disappointing:)

Vanessa's apartment is great! It's updated, in a secure building, and located close to public transit. We liked that it's located in a quiet neighborhood, with many local restaurants within walking distance. Also, when we wanted to go to the busier, more touristy areas of Barcelona, they are only a short tram/metro ride away. Vanessa was very easy to communicate with and was extremely helpful when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the apartment :) I would recommend her place to anyone!

Great place to stay! Great location with car park and easy to get into the main areas from here. We enjoyed our time and would come back when we are in Barcelona next.

Great apartment in a quite area but with great transport links. With the metro station less then a 5 min walk away we managed to get in and out of central Barcelona very easily. The apartment is modern with everything you need for a short stay. Unfortunately no terrace but with all the restaurants and cafe Barcelona has to offer you'll be eating out most of the time. I recommend a great tapas bar cerveceria catalana just off the top of the passiag de Garcia. Easy communication, Vanessa wasn't there but her mum was there to let us in even though we arrived an hour early. We enjoyed our stay and recommend it

Vanessa's apartment is fantastic and exactly as described. It is clean, comfortable and modern. Close to public transport but also in a safe and secure building. Vanessa was very warm and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely stay here again.

I am a womain in her mid thirties that still feels very, very young. I've been an independent traveller for years, eagering to learn from places and people. Me and my backpack (my longest relationship, we've been together for 17 years already and although it's a bit torn already, I can't abandon it). I also love reading, one of the authors I've been reading more lately is Stefan Zweig, I could say he is one of my favourites. I like trying to make the outmost of my life, this is why I abbandonned my confort zone of my career as a lawyer to become an actress and theatre producer. I love life and love, music, dancing, the sun, the sea, walking under the rain without an umbrella and the snow. I like surprises. I love getting lost and finding my way out, discovering things for the first time and l learning new things everyday.

I used to rent a spare room in my apartment in Madrid, and I enjoyed having people with me and as a host I try to make people feel at home when they stay with me. It was fantastic to get the opportunity to meet people that otherwise I would have never met. This is not the case of my apartment in Barcelona, since I rent it entirely while I'm not there. This means that probably we won't meet, but you'll be greeted by my mother, who is fantastic and for sure will give you a warm welcome (in Spanish).

I think life is so perfect if we watch it with the right look. I couldn't live not feeling happy when I wake up every morning.

Hugs from Spain!
Vanessa
