Barcelona Stunning Penthouse style apartment - city/beaches - WiFi

Overview

Property

Updated: 10-Sep-2016
3/4 bedrooms - 2 full bathrooms - sleeps up to 6 adults

We are very proud our unique home (in Barcelona). A dramatic setting - the 18th floor of a slim tower- Illa de Llac (only 4 apartments per floor), set within 17 ha parkland designed by world famous architect, Enric Miralles, overlooking - from the 30m terrace - a lake, beaches, the entire city including Sagrada Familia. It is a small chic community (Concierge & 24hr security), beside the best shopping complex in Barcelona, close to scores of restaurants, tapas bars, museums and miles of great beaches - just 10 minutes from Las Ramblas, Port Olympic or 25 minutes from the airport.

Staying in this special setting offers visitors an exceptional opportunity to enjoy and share in an exclusive enclave, whilst respecting that your/our neighbours are at home. If you seek the finer points of a unique holiday in Barcelona, then you will love this experience.

However if you seek an action packed location or party setting, you will be disappointed and so will our friends and neighbours.

1. “The apartment was really terrific. It was exactly how it was described and we were very happy. The location was exactly where we wanted to be, although some people might find it a bit far from the centre of Barcelona (we liked being near the beach and Diagonal Mar.) The view from the terrace was always a welcome site when we came home, and sitting out there with some wine was lovely. The bedrooms are good for a few people, and the two bathrooms make it easy for everyone to shower. Everyone who we met in the building were always friendly and said hello. We used the pool a few times which was great, too.” L. NY, USA June 2016

2. “Dermod's was very helpful prior to our trip answering any questions very promptly. The apartment was beautiful and had a wonderful panoramic view which made breakfasts on the terrace very enjoyable. Any problems we had during our stay were sorted out immediately by Jordi who looks after the apartment in Dermod's absence. We had a lovely family trip to Barcelona and the apartment was a fantastic base for us.” R & Family, May 2016

3. “If this flat had only come with the terrace and one bedroom, it would still have been worth it. Add in three more bedrooms, a mod-con kitchen, and a living room with floor to ceiling windows and sweeping views of the city (including La Familia Sagrada), and you have yourself the perfect holiday flat. Dermod made himself available via email before the trip, and was a gracious and considerate host. The keys were given to us at 10am and we were grateful to be granted early access. The apartment was clean and gorgeous, exceeding our (already high) expectations and located within a short walking distance to the beach. Almost directly across the street stands a large shopping complex with a huge array of restaurants, coffee shops, and the biggest grocery store we've ever been in. The Hop-on, Hop-off bus tour has a pick-up point just down the street, and a Hilton across the way where taxis line up to get you to the heart of Barcelona. All of these things are wonderful, but I cannot stress enough how wonderful the view—the VIEW!—is from this flat. We loved our long weekend in Barcelona, but we all agree that our favorite part of the whole trip was the apartment.” DMcH, CA, USA April 2016

3 a. Everything been very Good. Thanks. …easy from beginning to the end. MT, Sweden. April 2016

4. We had a fabulous time! Our stay was wonderful, your apartment was wonderful and made our stay in Barcelona that much more enjoyable! Thanks so much for the easy manner in which we were able to arrange this. We will certainly recommend you to others who make this trip, and would happily be in contact again the next time we venture to Barcelona. Thanks again! L Family, USA, March 2016

5. We got home yesterday from our FABULOUS stay in Barcelona. You know far better than I what a special place the city is, but I wanted to let you know what an important role your apartment played in our exciting week in Spain. The layout and location were as advertised and we really loved being able to get away from the city centre and relax at the beach and pool. The kitchen was especially convenient, well stocked and accessible. Toni and Jordi were especially helpful and you have no idea what a comfort it was for Jordi to be at the apartment when we arrive LATE last Wednesday night. R Family. USA, Aug 2015

6. Think you for letting us rent your lovely apartment in Barcelona. We had the perfect vacation. K Family. Denmark, July 2015

7. All went well at the apartment and had a great time in Barcelona. It gave us all we needed for our stay, many thanks. TD & Family, Berlin, May 2015

8. Thank you so much for letting us stay in your spectacular flat. We enjoyed especially the splendid view and the closeness to the beach. The flat and the whole house is very clean and looked well after and the public transport to the centre is very good as well as the taxi stand on the corner very useful. IW & Family April 2015

9. Dermod was extremely hospitable and helpful. I arrived in from the airport rather late and he organised for me to be met and shown around the apartment at that time. The apartment was perfect for our Conference as we were across at the CCIB in 5 minutes. It was also close to the beach for a long run and next to a large shopping centre, Diagonal Mar. The apartment was extremely clean, modern and well equipped. I will definitely stay here again for future trips to Barcelona. Dr. SOC, USA Feb 2015

10. Dermod was really helpful before our arrival. The team for the check-in was available and accommodating. The apartment was exactly as described and the location is perfect to go to the international conference centre. I would definitely rent it again for my next business trip in Barcelona. Thank you Dermod! ATG, Nov 2014

11. Dermod is a very professional and kind host. The communication was easy and the responses fast. The Apartment is right next to Diagonal Mar which is a valuable add-on. You can eat there, get some supplies (groceries) and everything you need. As we were there for a conference, it allowed us to get a coffee and relax in the apartment between sessions. Another great thing about the Apartment, it's in walking distance to the CCIB (not more than 300 meters). The Apartment is located on one of the last floors from that very tall building. The view is amazing and will boost up your overall satisfaction. The apartment is clean, well equipped and looks nice, like you can see in the pictures. I am not quite sure but we had the impression the apartment must be about 180-200 qm2 with plenty of space and privacy, especially if you share the apartment with someone else. Dermod organized a meet and greet and even responded to our request for a late checkout. All in all, highly recommendable. SS, Germany Nov 2014

12. We had a wonderful time in your apartment, although it seems a long time ago already … really enjoyed the view from the balcony in the evenings and the girls enjoyed being close to the beach. I would definitely recommend it to friends. McM Family, Canada, Oct, 2014

13. We had a lovely stay in you apartment. CP & Family August 2014

14. Thank you for your excellent appt in Barcelona. We had a great time in this cracking city and would hope to return in the not too distant future. AC & Family N. Ireland, August. 2014

15. We enjoyed our stay…and certainly we will keep your suite in mind when we travel next year. The location was just what we sought. Thank you again for your hospitality….JM/TP and family, USA, July 2014

16. We all enjoyed staying at your apartment…. We appreciated the beautiful panoramic view of the city many times as well as the beach and close walk to the mall and metro station. Barcelona is a fun city to visit and explore. GV & Family, Canada, June/July 2014

17. Thank you so much for the loan of the apartment again this year. To be sure I get it right for next year…if you could reserve it for us that would be fantastic…we love it and thank you again for letting us use it. PB, UK, June 2014

18. Dermod's place lived up to its billing -- extremely roomy with a nice pool complex, gym and paddle-board courts. Totally modern, great AC and VERY quiet. It's right across the street from what must be the largest and most modern shopping centre in Barcelona ... this is a very modern neighbourhood, a comfortable modern slice of life in an exotic, strange and wonderfully weird Spanish city. A few blocks from the Metro, which runs every 5 minutes, very clean with great access to everywhere you might want to go. Near the beach too. If you are looking for comfort, space and quiet, I cannot recommend this place too highly! P’OB, Ca, USA June 2014

1. “Dermod is a great host and provided excellent communication before and during the trip. Dermod has a detailed handbook that has almost everything you will need too perfect about the apartment. The apartment is very nice. The views are absolutely amazing. There are views about 270 degrees around and because the apartment is on the 18th floor you can see almost the entire city and more. Diagonal Mar is nice for families and its closeness to the beach is great. The building amenities are nice additions as well” AH & family, July 2016
