Property description

Feel our warm welcome to the new Barcelona Beachfront , in the city center safest area at this elegant apartment with top decoration, terrace, parking, high quality wifi and air conditioning, with the best communications.

This apartment is continously renovated, and the best place to have your holiday or business travel to Barcelona. We started holiday rentals last year, so please read the reviews and discover why in such a short time we have such a success!.

It is simple: The owner, David, is and explendid Cicerone, he meets everybody and takes the necessary time (sometimes two hours!!) in explaining everything about the city, city surroundings, apartment area, restaurants, supermarkets, prepared food, where to go, how to buy tickets...Not only that, he even comes personally to check if you are ok during your stay, or need suplementary information, and might even take you to a surprise route in or out of Barcelona, if he has time (he does it very often!!!). This is a surprise and not always possible, and don't usually appear in the reviews made by guests, by owners request not to make it a duty.

This 80 square m (900 sq ft) two bedroom and one bathroom apartment is decorated with the best pieces, and located at the Barcelona 21st century Front Marítim-Diagonal Mar Quarter, in an astonishing building designed by famous architect Ricardo Bofill.

This high-class apartment includes all details you can imagine, and you only have to cross the street to be in the sand of the beach or at the promenade, and also has the best communications, with bus just crossing the street, hop-on off bus at 30 meters, and underground stops only three blocks away in same street!.

Literally surrounded by bars, restaurants with all ranges of prices, supermarket, prepare food groceries...including the barcelona high school for cooking just in front.
Discover how the owner meets you personally and gives you his advices on what to visit at the area and the city based on his wide experience in top luxury hotel business!.

You can enjoy the lovely 'plaça prim barcelona', 'rambla poblenou', museums like 'museu blau' or 'museu can framis' in the area, as well as the biggest shopping mall in the city 'Diagonal Mar', with a big 'Wal-mart-like' inside, as well as all the shopping you might desire, as the area combines contemporary design like 'torre agbar' or 'diagonal 00' buildings and classic architecture.
You also get the best communications within the city, with bus stopping just in front, and underground station “Selva de Mar” only three blocks away, with which in example gothic quarter is reached in only 12-14 minutes, but you also have the relax of this less stressing and safer area, the promenade, the beach, in a brand new quarter with all the services close by.

Where elegance meets contemporary, in front of the mediterranean: that would be the best way to define the Sea Elegance Barcelona apartment.
You can feel the quality in each of the apartment details, with antiques coming from Barcelona, the Pyrenees, Germany and Morocco combined with design contemporary pieces.

The quality of the antiques and contemporary furniture , the Sony ES series HI-FI system with B&W loudspeakers and a wide collection of CD that you can play during your stay, that no way can be found in any rental apartment, the charming terrace with garden and sea views, the high quality electrical installation with several independent lighting modes for a more relaxing ambientation, makes this apartment a unique piece in the Barcelona beach.

Total of beds: 3.
Double beds: 2 (one fix). Single beds: 1

VRBO Bear stayed here:


Wow! What a great vacation in Barcelona, España! This apartment was muy perfecto for my daughter and me. We stayed one week in Barcelona for some beach time and sightseeing. This apartment provided everything we could ask for with all the necessary amenities and its wonderful location. It was located only 3 blocks to the closest subway metro station and one block to the beach. We were able to walk to the beach on many wonderful sunny days!

The owner was wonderful and prompt at answering all of our questions and truly helpful and attentive to meeting every one of our needs. He has done a great job at keeping the vacation property up to date and very cozy. The living room provided adequate space and seating for us to plan out our daily adventures and excursions around Barcelona!

I can honestly say I would recommend this property to any of my friends and family and know without a doubt they would have a great experience. The property owner is a very generous and hospitable person to work with.
