The Space

First of all, I want to let you know is that our priority is always to make you feel at home, but providing the greatest freedom in the world
In reference to the room, it is on the ground floor of the house and is 13 m ^ 2.
It has got a large writing desk to read, study, work, etc.. It also has fairly large plasma TV, a closet with some shelves to make clothes and a single bed. IN refernce to the bed, from 1,05x2,00 meters.
Inside the room is the bathroom with shower. Therefore the use of this private.
Next to the room is a beautiful and spacious patio that can have whenever they want. It's a table for any leisure activity like being on the computer, read, snack, play a board game, etc..
As for the location and surroundings, the house is a 20 minute walk from the center (Cathedral, Giralda, Torre del Oro.), being the walk to those places very nice, as you go through the Maria Luisa Park and Square Spain and you're practically in the center.

As I have said we have the Maria Luisa park two minutes from home, which is great, because in this park you can practice any kind of sport (jogging, cycling, skating ...), shop around by horse and carriage, rent a family bikes, spending time with family, outdoor picnic ...

We also have on the parallel street to our, lots of bars to have lots of great, cheap and abundant tapas, supermarkets, banks (Sabadell, La Caixa, Santander, Bankia ...), pharmacies, etc..

Come, I sure you will not regret!

  • Maria Jose was an amazing hostess. So friendly, warm, informative. She lent us a travel book on Seville which helped and she recommended places for tapas. Her casa was beautiful- 3 terraces where you can eat breakfast (she will make for you for 5 euros if you want) or just chill. Location from the center an easy 20 minute walk. It was an awesome experience and we would recommend staying with Maria =)

  • We had a lovely stay in Maria's home, it was a nice, clean house that was situated in a wonderful neighbourhood where it was peaceful and quite. Maria was a fantastic host and she helped us with everything that we needed, and she also made a delightful cherry cake to top it off. We couldn't have asked for anything better. The apartment was in a good location, not too far away from the main attractions, but it had everything you needed close by. Also nearby were many tapas restaurants that were amazing! some of the best foods I have ever had! I would recommend to stay with Maria if you get the chance.

  • Maria is a good host. We were well accommodated. Despite our limited Spanish, she made us feel at home. Her house is well located in a quiet residential neighbourhood, and only a 5 minutes walk to Plaza de Espana. The districts of Santa Cruz, El Arenal, and Triana are within walking distance as well. I highly recommend Maria to host your next travel to Seville. The location of her house is a nice alternative to more "touristy" accommodations in the heart of old town.

  • We had a wonderful stay with Maria Jose for three nights in Seville.  Maria Jose gave us good directions on how to get to her house from the airport. Her house is very nice and clean and the room we had was comfortable with its own bathroom. We are thankful that the room is air-conditioned. The location close to the city center is great and we were able to walk to all the sights in the city without having to use taxis or public transport.  She is very close to Plaza Espana which is one of the top recommended places to visit in Seville. She had other guests in her house, and it was nice to talk to her other guests to get tips to visit the city.

    Maria Jose is a very kind and caring person. She is availble when we needed help. She gave us maps, and gave us tips on what to see in the city, and where to eat.  There are several good places for tapas on the next street, which she can reccomend.  However her house is located on a residential street so it is very quiet.  She is very interested in different cultures of the world and we had several lively conversations with her. She does not respond in English to the enquiries on Airbnb, but while we were there she knows enough English that we never had problem communicating with her even though we do not know that much Spanish. When we wanted to go to see a Flamenco show she sent us to a Falmenco place that did not charge us for the show. We just had to buy our drink and tapas. It was not a place full of tourists, so it was authentic.

    When we had to have our clothes laundered, she did it for us and we had our clean clothes back that afternoon after sightseeing. When we left, Maria Jose offered to drive us to the car rental place near the train station for a nominal fee, which made it very easy for us.

    We highly recommend Maria Jose as a host in Seville. We will definitely stay with her again on our next visit to Seville.

  • We spent 2 nights at Maria Jose's. Her smile welcomed us! She helped us to arrange some issues and she gave tips to go for tapas! One morning we woke up with a smell of strawberry: she was preparing homemade strawberry jam!
    The house is really nice and well located! Def to recommend! We'll come back!

  • Estuvimos en casa de Maria José un par de noches esta semana santa y la verdad es que muy muy bien. Totalmente recomendable, ella es encantadora y muy educada, tienes total intimidad lo que se agradece bastante. La casa es muy bonita y luminosa y la tiene muy limpia, en nuestro caso teníamos el cuarto de baño en la habitación y lo encontré perfecto. En cuanto a la ubicación, la casa se encuentra cerca del parche María Luisa, por lo que si no conoces Sevilla, es perfecto ya que se encuentra al lado de la plaza de España y merece mucho la pena darte un paseito para verlo, la casa se encuentra muy cerca del centro pero no en él, así que por las noches se duerme (website hidden) volvemos a Sevilla, repetimos!

    During this Easter vacation we stayed at María Jose’s house in Sevilla for a couple of nights and it was actually really good. I would totally recommend it. She is lovely and very polite. We had complete privacy which was pretty much appreciated. The house is very nice and bright, it was very clean. In our case we had a bathroom in our room, it was in perfect conditions. As for the location, the house is near to María Luisa’s Park, so if you don’t know Sevilla, it is perfect because it’s right next to the Plaza of Spain a place well worth visiting.The house is very close to the center but not on it so that at night you can sleep without any problems. If we return to Sevilla we'll come back to María José’s again!

    Durante questa vacanza di Pasqua siamo stati a casa di Maria Jose a Siviglia per un paio di notti ed è stato effettivamente molto bene. Mi raccomando di andare da lei, chi è molto gentile ed attenta. Abbiamo avuto una privacità completa che è stata apprezzata. La casa è molto bella e luminosa, tutto stava pulito. Nel nostro caso abbiamo avuto un bagno nella nostra camera,e ci troviamo in perfette condizioni. Per quanto riguarda la posizione, la casa si trova vicino al Parco di María Luisa, quindi se non si conosce Sevilla, è perfetto perché è proprio accanto a Piazza di Spagna un luogo che merità la pena conoscere, nonostante, è molto vicina al centro, ma non proprio lí, in modo che durante la notte si può dormire senza problemi. Se dovessimo tornare a Siviglia torneremo da María José di nuovo!

  • Hello.
    Sadly I was not able to complete my reservation with Maria as she had a family emergency. Less than 24 hours before I arrived in Seville she contacted me to tell me this, which is obviously beyond her control. She took great steps in finding me a new place, and confirmed with her sister as to be my new host. 4 hours before I arrived that reservation fell through as well, and because I was currently on the train from Valencia I did not have WIFI. Maria kept searching for me despite her family issues, and went above and beyond to find me a new host last minute.
    I stayed with my new host, Ana near Sant Justa train station, which was a perfect location. I got off the train and could easily walk to the apartment. Ana welcomed me and although she did not speak a word of English she quickly became a mother figure to me. Making me sandwiches, coffee, tea, and even doing my laundry. The room was small, but pleasant. The bed was short, but comfortable. The bathroom wasn't private like the one I reserved with Maria, but it was close to my room, and Ana had her own, so it was fine. It ended up being a great experience as the apartment was near some great local restaurants, bars, and a gym. It was just outside of centre so I could walk anywhere I wanted, but wasn't overwhelmed by being in the heart of the procession. Seville is beautiful and the nightlife is fantastic.

  • J'ai passé un excellent séjour à Seville, très bien accueillie par Maria Jose et ses enfants. La maison est très agréable tout comme ses occupants! On s'y sent à l'aise, comme chez soi et avons une pleine liberté de mouvement dans et hors la maison. Je recommande cet endroit pour le lieu et la gentillesse de Maria Jose!

    María Jose es una persona estupenda que te hará sentir como en tu propia casa, si regreso a Sevilla volveré a alojarme en esta casa estupenda. Me llevo a una buena amiga de Sevilla María Jose.
