I love travelling, a few years ago I made a round the world trip, which was the supreme experience!
Now while living in Barcelona I help my Mum to rent her flat. We have met very nice people thanks to Airbnb
Sara has completed online and offline ID verification.

Asunto oli loistava ja kuvat olivat hyviä. Sara oli mahtava isäntä ja erittäin avulias alusta asti. Asunnon sijanti on mahtava! Suosittelen!
My parents and I stayed at Sara's flat for five nights. It was a complete pleasure! The pictures do not do the place justice. The flat is very spacious and clean, as is the terrace. We didn't use the terrace much, but the couple of times I stood out there, the view was pretty and the air refreshing. You might not expect it, but having a desk area was also actually very useful and helped enlarge the apartment space. The main bedroom is as pictured. The second smaller bedroom is bigger in person, probably helped by the fairly high ceiling and large window. It's cozy, not cramped. Kitchen has all the utensils you might need to cook, including cutlery, microwave, multiple pots/pans, silverware, dishes, etc...
In terms of location, Sara's apartment cannot be beat. A 5 minute walk to the Arc de Triomf and a 15 minute walk to Passeig De Gracia, Plaza de Cataluna, and the Born district. La Sagrada Familia is only about 25 min away by either foot or public transportation. All of the other major attractions and neighborhoods such as Poble Sec (25 min), Montjuic (35min), Park Guell (40min) are accessible by public transportation. The train station is a 3 min walk from the flat. There is also a big grocery store and several cafes within a 3 block radius.
The flat is only made better by Sara who was a great host -- quick to reply, more than willing to accommodate, and filled with recommendations.
Great stay at the apartment, and great comms throughout from Sara. The apartment was as described, and clean and tidy. We were warmly greated by Cisca upon arrival, and her comms were also great when arranging our departure.
Although I cannot fault the apartment in any way, we were dissapointed with the bars in the immediate vacinity. Irish bars, Karioke bars, English Bars.. we found these a bit tacky and more like Blackpool than the taverna's we had imagined. That said, it's a wonderful 5k walk to Cuitadella, the old historical town, so we did a bit of exercise too, and we hired a car and visited some of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. So, to sum up.. great apartment, as long as you've got a pair of legs, or a car, you will be able to see the real Menorca - a beautiful place, from a wonderful base!
Airbnb - my only complaint is that when trying to read messages that are sent to phones they arrive incomplete most of the time. Can you look into this issue please.. as it's critical to be able to use mobiles when out of Wifi Zones!
Highly recommended, at least in "terrace weather." A good value.
Sara's Mom met us at the apartment as expected. She doesn't speak much English but explained all that we needed to know, and there were helpful instructions with directions to the supermarket, etc. The apartment was nice and clean. Everything was as pictured on airbnb.
The apartment is simple but has everything you need, and the terrace is what makes it great. There is not much street noise (on the 6th or 7th floor), and although you can see the Plaza Tetuan you don't really hear the traffic. The neighborhood is nice, with lots of cafes and people walking their dogs.
There is easy access to two Metro lines, as well as buses. Also, try the Mytaxi app, it works like Uber but gets you a taxi; they are relatively cheap in BCN.
Sara was very easy to work with; we finally saw her when we left. We would definitely rent from her again.
The apartment is spacious and well-equipped, and in a great location - just steps away from a street of restaurants and bars, leading up to the main square. We loved Begur and its old large mansions built by those who returned from the Americas. Despite the tourists it has a vibrant local life.
Sara and her mother Rosa were very helpful and even provided a cot, parasol and beach towels. The only (slight) downside was the uncomfortable mattress on the double bed and the fact that the apartment is quite dark (but it also stays cool - the advantage of an 18th century building). I would certainly recommend this place to others.
Vamos a cambiar el colchon de la cama de matrimonio.
Gracias por tu comentario.
We had a terrific stay at Sara's apartment - the terrace has an incredible view of the city and is a great location accessible to multiple subway stops. Spacious, clean, secure apartment with great amenities. Check in with Rosa (Sara's mom) was seamless and we enjoyed being welcomed with a few beers and water in the fridge! Would definitely recommend to others!
This apartment, as the host describes it, is lovely. There is nothing special about the building, but it is secure and clean and has an elevator to the attic level if your are too weary from exploring to climb the 6 levels. The apartment is clean, spacious and generally well equipped. The master bedroom is a good size with plenty of storage. The single room is a little cramped but fine for one person. The bathroom is also a good size. All windows are double glazed and so the apartment is very quiet if you want it to be. It has good ventilation and airconditioning.
The real highlight is the terrace, which has plenty of room to stretch out and fantastic views of the Sagrada Familia and nearby hills. A stunning spot to enjoy a glass of wine after a day of sight-seeing.
The immediate surrounding area is unexciting, but there are some pretty streets, parks and other sights very nearby. It is also walking distance to many of the main tourist destinations, without being right in the thick of it.
We didn't get to meet our host, but she was very responsive to our email questions and the arrangements she made for someone to meet us at the start and end of our stay worked fine.
We couldn't recommend this apartment more highly, especially for a couple or family with one child.
Wow! What a fantastic apartment!!!
The communication with Sara was great. We caught the bus from the airport then walked to the apartment. Took about 20 mins and easy to find. Or you can catch the metro 2 stops and walk about 5 mins.
Sara's Mum was there to meet us. She did not speak any English which made the interaction more fun. She was a lovely lady and had cleaned the apartment very well!
We walked in and felt like home. The apartment is VERY modern with a great kitchen and huge terrace. Bed is comfortable and great block out blinds if you need to sleep in after a big night eating tapas!
Lots of local places to eat and a fantastic supermarket only 5 mins walk away.
We hired bikes for 2 days which was a great way to see Barcelona!
I would definitely recommend to stay at Sara's apartment.
Il mio host è stato gentilissimo e preciso,direi che la casa ,l'atmosfera e il materiale a nostra disposizione è stato nettamente superiore alle nostre (email hidden) casa è situata in un posto meraviglioso difronte al mare e vicinissimo a tutte le comodità compresa la Ciudadella città storica di Minorca .Piscina (website hidden) consiglio vivamente di sceglierla.Grazie ancora a Sara
Muchas gracias por tus comentario. Esperamos verte de nuevo
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans cet appartement, avec une vue panoramique très agréable, notamment la nuit, on peut y voir la tour Agbar illuminée. L'avantage ultime, c'est qu'il est très bien situé. Vous pouvez accéder à pied à beaucoup d'endroits différents : le quartier culturel El Born, la plage, l'arc de triomphe, le marché de la conception qui est vraiment excellent...et aussi, le calme, car l'appartement est situé dans un quartier sans bruit. L'appartement est spacieux et très propre. A votre arrivée, tout a été pensé : serviettes de toilette, sèche cheveux, papiers toilette, savon, cintres et même 2 canettes de bière fraîches ! Sans compter l'accueil de la maman de Sara qui était bien sympathique. Merci pour tout cela.
Wonderful guests! Interesting talks, no problems at all.
Sara and his friend were very greatful customers. They are very friendly and leave the flat clean. You are welcome again every time. :)
Todo muy bien.Muchas gracias por todo.
Sara was a very nice girl, although I could not see her, I know there was no spotlight in the room so I can recommend her as a guest.
Han sido una pareja encantadora. Hemos estado encantados de tenerlos y esperamos verlos de nuevo en un futuro.
Juanjo and Sara are perfect guests. Very polite, respectful, easygoing and spontaneous people. We became friends in a couple of minutes. It was such a pleasure to go for a short sightseeing together. They kept the flat clean always respected the house rules and the neighbours. I hope to see them back again!
