We loved everything about the appartment: location was perfect- central and yet very quiet; the appartment itself was amazing with everything one could wish for; a real home away from home; beds were very comfortable; showers were great; internet worked really well; verandas were a great bonus especially for watching fireworks! It was really nice not to have to worry about toiletries, detergents, salt, sugar etc. Our only regret is that we only had 3 nights in this amazing place!!! We hope to be able to come again one day and spend more time (and watch some of the great selection of movies and read from the wonderful collection of books available at the appartment! !!) Thanks again for sharing your space with us!
This apartment is the best place you can have in Barcelona! It's a huge apartment, with a typical Barcelona style, a wonderful roof top and is in the middle of the Gotic barrio! Morever, Kath is a very prevenant host, full of advice and nice attentions! Go there, you won't regret it!!
All was perfect! Amazing flat and Kathl soo sweet and Nice
I have stayed in airbnb places before with friends and this is the best experience I have had. A really great place with an amazing terrace and the location is incredible. The apartment is right in the center of the old town and yet it is really quiet. I would definitely stay with here again. No complaints whatsoever.
Noel met us at the apartment when we arrived and gave us a great overview of the apartment and some useful tips about the area. Great flat & location.
We spent a weekend with three girls at Kath and Noel's place. It was amazing - the apartment is in a cool Barcelona building, perfectly located in the Born (close to the beach, restaurants, shopping, Ciutadella park), very big and cozy and has everything one needs. Also, it stays nicely cool even in the summer heat. Kath and Noel were great hosts, very responsive, and went out of their way to accommodate our needs (arrival/departure time). Contrary to other reviews, we did not at all feel unsafe on the street or in the area and would rent the place again any time!
Accommodation was spacious and clean, really enjoyed the location and the surrounding vibe.....there are many great quirky restaurants and shops in all the small lane ways, we loved the experience.
The hosts were most helpful and kind to make sure we were comfortable.
There was no TV but for us that was a positive, no time was wasted, even with a 10 year old.
Appartement situé dans un quartier très passant surtout une fin de semaine de fêtes comme celle où nous avions réservé;
Nous avons dû quitter une journée plus tôt car c'était trop bruyant avec les pétards des fêtards.
Impossible d'ouvrir les fenêtres et pas d'air climatisé
Dommage car l'hôte était très gentil et ponctuel
We had a very pleasant stay at the apartment. Kath and Noel are great hosts. The apartment is very spacious, clean, has comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen.
The location is good; close to the centre, the Parc and the beach. The neighboorhood is nice and has lots of restaurants, and nice shops. We disagree to the comment below. We both lived in Barcelona for a couple of years and booked this apartment because of the location. There are, like in many large cities with tourists, pickpockets. But that is everywhere in Barcelona and this street/neighbourhood is not known for being so dangerous. We can recommend to stay at this apartment. Cheers, Esther and Pim
This apartment is in a terrible location. We were robbed leaving. The host warned us when we checked in that the previous two clients had their bags taken as they waited to get in to the apartment. We followed his directions about getting a taxi the morning we left and we were robbed getting into the taxi. Don't stay here. The apartment is shabby, needs refurbishing and shopkeepers and street inhabitants will warn you "This is a dangerous street".
Noel and Kath were great guests. They were tidy, respectful of the property and friendly. We really enjoyed having them here.
Kath and Noel stayed in the apartment with their little son. They were excellent guests. Very easy going and easy to communicate. I hope to see them again. I would certainly recommend them as guests.
It was great having Kath and her family and friends over at our house. Communication was great from the start and they were extremely careful with the place and very kind to our staff. We would welcome them any time again!
Kath and family were super guests. Friendly and good fun and kept the cabana in great shape. Would highly recommend and hope to have them back to Las Cabanas Magicas.
Kath y su familia fueron muy claros desde el principio, muy cuidadosos con la casa y autosuficientes. La comunicación fue buena y todo salió muy bien. Los recomendamos como huéspedes!
We where very happy to receive Kathy and her family! Glad to have them again!
It was lovely to meet Kath and her family and I hope they all had a great time at Caple Gardens for Christmas. They left the house in great shape and are welcome back any time.
Kath was a great guest. Super considerate of the flat and stay conditions and everything was in order upon check out. Would love to host her again.
Kath was very friendly and she has a beautiful smile. Her husband and her friend were very nice people too. The baby was so cute ... Very wise and always smiling. There is no problem with him :) They used the house very well and they were very nice with the host. I very very recommend them as guests.
Kath and her friend were perfect guests. They can come anytime!
I have known Kath for two years and Noel for four years, and they are dear friends of mine here in Barcelona. Kath and Noel would be an excellent resource for anyone travelling to the city. They know all the great restaurants, bars, galleries, cinemas, etc. They are attentive, thoughtful friends and I am sure this would translate to their role as host on airbnb. Their apartment in the Born is beautiful - very spacious with wood floors and wooden beams in the ceiling. The view from the living room is a tranquil ivy-covered courtyard. There is an excellent open-plan kitchen, perfect for entertaining. And it is absolutely silent! Which is a real luxury in cacophonous Barcelona....
Wonderful neigjhborhood, wonderful apartment, wonderful people.
What more could you ask for?
My name is Samantha, I'm living in Barcelona and I'm good friends with apartment owners Noel and Kathleen. I can very confidently say that they are really reliable, trustworthy, warm and welcoming people. The apartment is great, I have actually stayed there when they were out of town and the experience was very relaxing and enjoyable. The place is situated on one of the prettiest streets in Barcelona and you are close to everything i.e markets, Parc Cituadella, the beach, metro ect.... I have nothing but good things to say about both the apartment and the owners as I have many good memories attatched to the times I have spent there.
