My cozy and well equipped 1 bedroom apt with garage is everything you need for a perfect stay in Barcelona. It's walking distance to the beach and conveniently located in a quiet neighbourhood with easy access to the city centre by public transport!
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.
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)
* Hi-Fi system, with CD player and USB to plug your Iphone or Ipod
* Air conditioning
* Motorised blinds
* 100 MG WI-FI
* Washing machine
* 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.
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!
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!
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.
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!

Vanessa is a very generous and lovely lady, she went out of her way to ensure my wife and I had a pleasant visit to Barcelona. The apartment is very cosy indeed and certainly a home away from home.
Even though I couldn't meet Vanessa, I felt she was a nice, smart, and kind person. Everytime my sister and I asked something, she did her best, and that was absolutely the best for us. Also, she gave a lots of information, so we could enjoy Barcellona well.
Thank you again Vanessa for all things you did~
For about her house, it was a CHIC, CLEAN,and COSY house. I loved it. I am 100%sure I will be back to her house if I will go to Barcellona again.
The restaurants she recommended were also really really nice~!!!
See you next time Vanessa!!!
Great apartment and excellent communication. It's a little further out of town but the metro and the tram are incredibly close, and the ability to park securely was a big plus.
Vanessa is absolutely amazing she is extremely generous and gracious. This was my girlfriend and I first Airbnb experience and was quite pleasant. The apartment was in a great location too access the subway and buses. The apartment is perfect size for a nice quiet couple and is well kept and clean. The apartment supplied cooking utensils and washer and dryer which was extremely helpful for being on the road for one month. Vanessa was very quickly to respond to our needs or question. She gave us great recommendations for sight seizing and restaurants. When we arrived to her apartment her mother who was extremely nice and helped us get affiliated with everything in the apartment. There were grocery and restaurants nearby. I recommend purchasing the $10 euro subway pass and travel throughout Barcelona easily via subway or busses.
Cant thank Vanessa enough and her mother for their kindness and patience :)
The flat is really nice, as per all the other reviews and the hosts marvellous, we had a lot of driving and some issues but they were very accommodating and patient with us which I can't thank them enough.
Great modern quiet flat, good location, useful parking, a very well equipped kitchen, fast internet, good shower, what else could you want...
We had the perfect stay at Vanessa's over the New Year period. The flat is really lovely, clean & well presented (we are convinced Vanessa works for Zara Home - really lovely contents). Everything you would need is stocked in the flat, and Vanessa left a lovely welcome pack which we thoroughly enjoyed! The metro is so easy to use & you can get to anywhere in Barcelona by jumping on at stop Selva del Mar just a minute or so walk from the apartment. We would definitely visit again, and stay at Vanessa's, highly recommended for everyone!
On est tombé sous le charme de Barcelone, une ville incroyable à l'architecture remarquable.
L'appartement est très bien placé (tram au bas de la rue), moderne très confortable, et de toutes commodités.
Vanessa est très sympathique et organisée, petit-déjeuner et bouteille offerte à notre arrivé un vrai plus.
Nous recommandons cet appartement pour les séjours en amoureux et même en famille.
Merci Vanessa pour ton accueil nous avons adoré Barcelone!
Vanessa's place was great. Tram stop across the street from the building and the metro stop was two blocks away, which made it very easy to get around Barcelona. The apartment was very nice with modern finishes and the view was nice :) We never met Vanessa but her mother met us at the apartment and did a good job explaining everything (in Spanish) we needed to know about the place. WiFi worked great and having a clothes dryer was a nice bonus as most places don't have dryers. I would be very happy to stay there again if I come back to Barcelona.
매우 깨끗하고 관리상태도 너무 좋은 집이었다. 세탁기 식기세척기등 필요한 것들이 다 구비되어 있었고 주차장도 프라이빗한 곳에 있었고 언제든 무료로 마음대로 사용할 수 있었다.
집주인은 마드리드에 살고 있어서 집주인 어머니가 대신 체크인을 도와주었는데 말은 통하지 않아도 매우 친절하고 좋은분이셨다.
우리가 조금 오래 머물러서인지 아침으로 먹을 과일과 빵 우유 와인까지 세팅해 주었다. 딱 이집같은 내집이 바로셀로나에 있었으면 좋겠다는 생각이 드는 집이었다. Good!Good!Good!
Staying at Vanessa's flat was a very pleasant experience. The flat is very clean and tidy, as well as stylish and functional. Vanessa gave us lots of information before our arrival and was also very helpful in finding us a taxi for our airport transfer.
On our arrival we found a lovely welcoming food pack, which sorted us out for breakfast. It was a very pleasant surprise to find this, as we arrived late at night and didn't have to worry about going out and look for a shop in the morning. The flat was also equipped with a child cot, which was perfect for us as we travelled with our son and didn't have to carry the cot on the plane...massive bonus! I'd stay there again and would highly recommend it if visiting Barcelona. It's easy to catch public transport from there but also a near enough walk to the beach if you don't want to go to the city centre.
