Just another happy person who like to travel and be enrich by new experiences. Italian, Spanish and Australian hertitage show their influence in my personality. My instinct and Good Will lead the way.
As a recent guest has said, pictures don't capture what awaits.
This magical apartment is on quite possibly the prettiest little square in Barcelona. The moment I walked into the little foyer I knew I'd found the warm Catalan ambience I'd hoped for. It has the privilege of a corner setting, and out every one of the many windows is a beautiful vista. The pedestrian only streets keep outside noise down, although my visit was in winter when crowds are low. It is furnished with a funky-artist-bohemian vibe, and as you browse the collections, the furnishings, and the library of books you know the owner is someone you'd find interesting, someone you'd like to know. Despite the fact that Maria was half a world away during my stay, she was attentive, patient and kind in her many emails. It matters to me that I am staying in a kind person's home- I've scored again!
Note-several stairs up but well worth the chore.
Un-modernized kitchen and bath- thanks!!! I hope you never change a thing!
More notes-Plaster ceiling medallions, Spanish tile floors, comfortable beds, clean, safe, near the beach
Maria's place was fabulous, even better than the pictures. It was well located, had cool decorations, and was comfortable and cozy. Maria also emailed us some great recommendations of places to go, bars etc nearby. I one-hundred percent recommend it.
It was a nice and cosy place to stay on the perfect spot in Barcelona. In the middle of Barceloneta and El Born. Just 10 min from the Ramblas. But still quiet enough to have a good sleep. The wifi worked great, but who needs all that when you're in Barcelona. We stayed here with 5 people in total and it was perfect. The only 'negative' point was, that the water of the shower was a little bit cold. But that woke us up, so we didn't mind. I'd definitively go back to Maria's place when visiting Barcelona.
We had a wonderful stay at Maria's apartment. It is just a 5 minute walk to the beach and is located in the best part of the city (El Born) near a lot of cool shops/bars/restaurants. The apartment itself has everything you need and has a nice view. The contact with Maria was really good and she send us some recommendations of stuff we could do in the neighborhood. Definitely one to keep in mind for the next time!
Above all, Maria's place is in a great location. The place is spacious and cosy and she was a great host.
The apartment location is really amazing, in the center of Born, everything is within walking distance. It is located on the beautiful residential square, which is lively during the day, but quite at night. Apartment is spacious and equipped with everything you may need. Maria is a great host, she made all communications super efficient and easy, was flexible when I needed to extend my stay and also provided great advices for the local restaurants. Great place!
Maria helped us with a last minute booking and the place was absolutely amazing! Perfect location in Born and close to many great places in Barcelona. Walking distance to the beach and very close to all of the Gotic area. Highly recommend this place!
Great location, lovely flat, would happily stay again and recommend it to others.
We had a great stay at Maria's place and warmly recommend it! Superb location, a large yet cozy flat with a lovely view from four balconies. Everything was as promised and the Host Maria was nice enough to provide us with a list of recommendations including bars, restaurants and markets, everything within walking distance.
