Just that guests will treat my apartment as if it were their own and that my neighbors were their own also.Please note this is not a place for stag nights or hen nights. Thank you.
We were looking for a base in Barcelona from which we could explore the city. Also, since we were with three kids, it was good to have a terrace to relax in between visits. John's apartment was perfect for this and we had a great time.
We had a wonderful stay at John's apartment. It is beautiful and in a great location - near to the metro and lots of bars and restaurants. Without a doubt, the best part is the terrace with the huge table. John was friendly and helpful when we met. I will definitely stay again!
Even though this looks great in the pictures - it is so much better in real life! John was a great host - met us and showed us around the apartment and then left us to enjoy. It is perfectly situated - a supermarket across the road, a great grocers right underneath and a fab market around 8-10 mins walk. The apartment itself was great - clean, roomy and had everything that you needed for a short stay. It was so difficult to tear ourselves away to enjoy Barcelona! We had an amazing time - thank you so much.
Host is very friendly and a wealth of information and useful tips. The apartment is a little better than the listing states, in terms of look, feel and atmosphere. You're in the middle of the city but it's very relaxed and chilled. No-one is in a rush and most speak a little English enough to understand you but I do recommend you learn a little basic Spanish words. Beautiful culture and amazing city.
John made us feel welcome and comfortable right away. The apartment is comfortable, bright and spacious. John was very helpful to us in storing our luggage for several weeks while we traveled through Spain before arriving in Barcelona. This was vey much appreciated.
If you want a first class, five star experience, stay in John Lukes apartment. The apartment itself is beautifully laid out and tastefully decorated without going overboard. John has a wonderful selection of books to peruse and plenty of helpful maps, guides etc to help you out in Barcelona with a home that is close to everything. When you are not going out or just coming home after your day, this home is the perfect welcome. What sets this place apart is the huge terrace which is bathed in sunshine, to relax on over a glass of wine while reading a book or listening to music. John himself is very welcoming and laid back with very few do's and don'ts. Unfortunately on our first night our music was loud enough to bring a neighbour to the door so the few requests John lays out are consideration and respect for his buildings other tenants. I cannot recommend this beautiful home too highly. It is a must for any visitors to this wonderful city.
