The appartment was once again as expected. Great location and helpful host.
We had a wonderful time in Barcelona. The appartment was nice with the three bedrooms and on a good location. Thank you Mike.
Mike war für uns ein toller Gastgeber. Auch wenn wir ihn vor Ort nicht persönlich getroffen haben, lief die Kommunikation super. Er hat uns vorab mit vielen nützlichen Informationen, Tipps und guten Insights für Barceloneta versorgt. Wir waren zu fünft - zwei Erwachsene und drei Kinder (13, 10 und 3), und die Wohnung war für uns groß genug und gut geschnitten. Die Lage ist perfekt für eine Kombination aus Stadt und Strand. Abends auf dem Balkon hat man das Gefühl, mitten drin zu sitzen.
After a very bad experience with our original Barcelona host canceling with us in less than 24-hours, and ending up in a very bad place out of a rush to find something else, Mike and his adorable apartment saved the day!
We had a great stay in this area of Barcelona. Close walk to the beach, restaurants and other attractions. We were even greeted with a bottle of wine and let in hours earlier than normal check-in as we were stranded as a result of the cancelation/bad apartment. Airbnb was also helpful in helping find this great place.
So very grateful for the stay and would highly recommend staying here!
Krishta, I'm very happy and honored to have saved the day :-) And I'm thrilled you had such a good stay. You're more than welcome back anytime.
Mike (and Josue)
Stayed at Mike's apartment with my husband and four children aged between 6 and 15. Mike's communication beforehand was friendly and helpful, and Josue, who let us into the apartment was great too.
The apartment was perfect for our needs - just a few minutes from the beach and from Barceloneta metro station. The street that the flat is on is very busy and touristy; the upside to this is that you can find pretty much anything you need at any time! The bedrooms are at the back of the building though, so there was no problem with noise when we wanted to sleep. The quieter streets behind the flat had excellent bakers, greengrocers and restaurants too.
The flat itself was clean, modern and simply furnished, but with all the things (washer, drier, microwave, dishwasher, 2 bathrooms) that make holidays with children just that bit easier. The balcony was a great extra, and was secure enough for even my very boisterous 6 year old!
We had a fantastic holiday, and Mike even arranged a late check out for us, so we could have another morning on the beach.
Zoe, I'm trilled you guys enjoyed it so much :-) It was a true pleasure hosting you! Hope to see you back again!
Mike (and Josue)
The flat has a great location! In the kitchen we found everything, what we needed. Mike was very helpful. We forgot something in the flat and he sent it to Germany. For six persons there was enough space in the flat. We were in the august in Barcelona and it was very hot. We wished an air condition not only in the living room, but also in the sleeping rooms. The open window was not enough for the comfortable temperature to sleep. But I think, it is a problem of really hot days only...
We really loved the apartment of mike! There was everything available what we needed like towels, dish washer, etc. It was also really close to the beach! mike and his friend have been really helpful and nice! Thank you :-) we would love to come again!
Thanks Lisa! We're glad you enjoyed it so much. Hope to see you back soon :-)
We just came back from our trip to Barcelona July 2014. The apartment was great. Exactly the way it looks in the pictures (but actually better). Researching where to stay for a vacation overseas can be difficult, but Mike made it easy by not only communicating with us before we booked, but throughout the entire process. I read the feedback from the place, and I have to agree with everyone - great location, super clean, easy to get to, a great place. Thank you Mike!
Mike's apartment was awesome, the location is so great, close to the beach, sightseeing spots, there is a metro station close by although we had a car and didn't use the metro. The communication with Mike went very smoothly, although we didn't met him in person I can feel his warm and welcoming spirit through his emails. Upon arrival Mike arranged a bottle of wine and chocolate (for the kids) for us. His friend Josue waited for us at the apartment to give us the key, very nice fellow, he even got us a good discount for the parking across the street. During our stay a light in one of the bathroom was broken, Josue responded very fast and came to fix it the next morning as we requested. Mike provided us with lots of useful tips of the stores and restaurants in the neighborhood, which was very handy.
The apartment was very clean, the living room is very bright and the bedrooms are on the sides with the small street, so although curtains are pretty transparent you can still sleep well in the morning since the bedrooms on the shadow sides. The apartment has very thing we needed, it is actually the first apartment were we found chopsticks, which is very handy for Chinese family like ours ;-). I highly recommend Mike's apartment for your stay in Barcelona! Thank you Mike and Josue for make our first visit to Barcelona such a pleasant trip!
Great place, just what we needed, thanks Mike.
Mike and his girlfriend were a delightful couple, warm, friendly, really easy going, they were a pleasure to have stay with us, and are welcome back anytime!.. I definitely recommend them to other bnb's
Mike is an experienced airbnb guy, and has a great understanding of hosting and also being a host. it was nice to sit down & talk with him and he has a great sense of humor. a very considerate guest, bascially a pleasure to have in my house. all the best mike, see you soon maybe.
