Description

The space

This is our private apartment, which we rent out to visitors for about half of the year. We spend a lot of time traveling the world, and enjoy welcoming people into our home when we're not using it. Our apartment is very central, with a great terrace overlooking rooftops and church towers. It's perfectly located for Fallas; just a short walk to the daily mascletas, but it's quiet at night, so you can get some rest.

Guest access

The apartment measures 84m², plus a 15m² terrace. We do keep a small (7m²) room locked, as storage for our clothes and personal effects, but this is the only inaccessible part of the apartment.

Interaction with guests

We'll likely be on the road, but we have wonderful friends who will be there to greet you, give you the keys and advice, and who will be on-call for any problems you might have during your stay.

The neighborhood

The apartment is found in La Xerea, which is part of Valencia's historic center. This neighborhood is great, because you're close to all the downtown sights such as the Mercado Central and the Plaza de la Virgen, as well as the Turia Riverbed Park. And despite being so central, it also manages to be a quiet, residential area.

Getting around

The apartment is minutes from a subway stop (Colón), and there are a ton of bus connections around the corner. There are a number of bicycle rental shops nearby, and two stations for Valencia's bike-sharing program Valenbisi. And given our central location, walking is likely to be the quickest way to see most of the city's highlights!

Other things to note

This isn't just a normal vacation rental, but our private home. We have high-quality appliances in the kitchen, a comfy bed, a nice big TV, a record player, and a game system, because these are the things we want for ourselves. We think you'll enjoy the place as much as we do.


House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets

There is AC and heating in both the living room and bedroom; we ask that you shut the machines off, before leaving the apartment.

Smoking inside is not allowed, but you can smoke on the terrace.

That's it! We hope you feel as comfortable in our home, as you do in yours!

Great location, and great apartment. Everything was as described and we had a very warm welcome - even though we arrived around midnight. We stayed 14 days and loved every single day. The perfect city and the perfect apartment for a couple spending April days in Spain.

Excellent communication pre-arrival. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Yuergen or Michael but their friend Yon greeted us. He was great. Easy check-in. And only 5 Euros from train station in a cab. Apartment was absolutely outstanding. Pictures don't do it justice. Balcony was fantastic any time of day. We had sun from around 11am until the sun went down (late July). Everything worked a treat. Air-conditioning was great with an additional ceiling fan in bedroom. TV was great. HUGE. Shower/bathroom lovely too. Kitchen had everything needed. Washing machine was helpful and clothes dried super quick hanging out on washing lines. Location wise it was perfect. In a quiet street but SO close to one of the main squares / old town. Everything is within a 5 minute walk (bars, restaurants, shops, etc) and for those who require supermarket shopping only a 5 minute walk to El Corte Ingles. Check-out was excellent too. Very flexible with timings which helped with our train journey to Barcelona. Would 100% recommend and will definitely stay again when we return to the lovely city of Valencia.

We stayed three days at Michael's apartment. It is very well located, just in the center and very near the old town. The apartment is very clean, you have all you need for, it is well organized. The welcoming was great and the communication was very quick. The terrace is priceless and it makes the whole difference of staying in Valencia. I would recommend to stay at Michael's apartment to everyone. It is one of the best AirBnB stays we had.

We stayed for one week at Michaels apartment and it was perfect, really recommendable! It is situated in the 5th floor and the building has a lift, great! The communication with Michael and his friends, who welcomed us warmly at our arrival at the apartment, was very quick. The apartment was perfectly clean and the kitchen is amazing, equipped with everything you need, you have even a shopping trolley. The apartment is beautifully decorated and is well located, a really nice neighbourhood with lots of restaurants and bars and you can reach most of the points of interest by walking. The roof terrace is so lovely and the flat is air conditioned perfect for hot summer months.I really can't recommend this place highly enough. Thank you Juergen and Michael, we will return!

This is a great apartment. It is very centrally located, beautifully decorated and pleasant to spend time in, exceptionally clean and very spacious and well equipped. The roof terrace is particularly lovely, and the flat is air conditioned throughout for the hot summer months. It is also excellent value for money. It is located in the heart of the old town just five minutes walk away from the cathedral, with plenty of places to shop eat and drink nearby. There is a metro station 5 minutes away, and from here you can catch a train which takes you directly to the airport in 30 minutes. The hosts respond very quickly if you have any questions. They also left information on good places to eat nearby, all great recommendations! I really can't recommend this place highly enough. Thanks Juergen and Mike for such a great place to stay!

I'm a professional traveler, moving around the world three months. My partner and I write about our experiences on a blog called For 91 Days.

We're based in Valencia, Spain, but since we're on the road for most of the year, we like to rent our apartment to other travelers.
