There is a cleaning lady coming once per week (usually Wednesday) that professionally cleans the apartment. She can include your room or respect your privacy, as you wish.
Btw: There is NO elevator, great work out ;-)
You have access to the whole apartment, except my own bedroom :-)
Interaction with Guests
I am not around that much. I normally work during weekdays from 8 am till 7 pm and I am also often away for a night or two for work. When I am home I enjoy a friendly chat with my guests, but I leave them their privacy. However, I am always happy to provide help and hints about Barcelona!
Beach right in front, spanish feeling in the little small streets, lots of restaurants and cozy bars, nightlife nearby, yet quiet!
Bus right in front of the house, Metro (yellow line, Barceloneta) is 5-10 minutes walking.
Of course I can provide you with information how to get to the apartment from Barcelona airport, Girona/Reus airport or any other point in Barcelona. If you are lucky, I might even be free to pick you up!
I am looking forward to welcoming you to Barcelona and its sunny Barceloneta beach!
Other Things to Note
PS: Just for those that are new to airbnb: I am not a hotel, so we keep the public areas of the apartment (bath, kitchen, living room) clean and neat together, and so are they when you arrive :-)
No smoking allowed (except on the terrace). You cannot bring other people home without my approval. It is important to respect the neighbors and keep the noise to a minimum after 11 pm.
We had a great time in Martin's place.
He is a great host, super nice and helpful.
The apartment is very good located, clean and comfortable, same with pic! We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and staying in the balcony. Everything is great here.
We would highly recommended this place!!
Martin is the perfect host, very friendly and helpful!
The flat is very clean and close to everything (beach, nightclubs, restaurants, supermarkets,…). Everything looks like on the pictures.
We really enjoyed staying in his flat and in the amazing balcony!
We would definitely recommend Martin’s place to everyone travelling to Barcelona!
Die Wohnung von Martin war sehr ordentlich und sauber und entsprach genau den Bilder bei airbnb.
Die Lage zum Meer als auch zur Metro waren super. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und würden jederzeit wiederkommen.
Vielen Dank dafür.
Franzi und Andrea.
Me and my friend stayed in Martin's apartment for a few days. The flat is quite spacious and very light, there is a large balcony that overlooks the see on the left. Martin is amicable and generous; he is always glad to help his guests and to recommend some interesting places to go. There is quite cosy and comfortable atmosphere :)
una gran experiencia! casa posiciona muy bien, excelente limpieza y orden! Martin es un host amable y discreto! excelente! gracias!
We had a great time at Martin's place! The apartment was very nice and clean. Martin was a good and helpfull host. The location of the apartment was perfect, close to the beach and a big supermarket.
So we would definitely recommend this place!
We stayed for nine nights in Martin's flat in June/July 2014. The location is great, just a few minutes' walk from the playa and at the same time just nearby the lovely Plaça de la Font with its cafes where you can also find supermarkets, bakeries and a market to shop groceries. There's also a bus stop just outside and the metro station is not far away.
Martin made us feel really welcome and answered all of our questions about the neighbourhood. Importantly, he even offered to compensate us for a minor issue with the kitchen.
We were the first family with a child to stay in the apartment and it worked out really well with our 3-year-old, even though the room is a bit too small for a couple with a kid. Martin had already pointed this out to us and mentioned that the many stairs could also be a problem.
When temperatures reach above 25 it's also necessary to open most windows in the apartment, so especially during weekends the noise from the street can be a bit of a nuisance.
But, overall, we of course recommend Martin's apartment!
