About the Homestay
NICE SUNNY PRIVATE ROOM OVERLOOKING OUR PRIVATE SUN TERRACE, BARCELONA ZONE 1
7th floor attic with a view of Sagrada Familia and a sun terrace. The room has a double bed, a standing lamp, a bed-side light, huge wardrobe for storage, bedding, pillows, sheets, towels and a desk for a laptop computer. From the window you get a nice view of La Sagrada Familia, which you can also see whilst sitting down at the desk while working etc. The flat has super fast WiFi. The room is secure with double glazing windows, an external shutter for additional sun protection, which can make the room pitch black and curtains, too. Being on the 7th floor, you will find that it is very quiet. The building has a lift.
The whole flat is super secure and in a respectable neighbourhood of Barcelona - Clot and Camp de L'arpa. The flat is 8 blocks away from Sagrada Familia, which is a 10 mins walk. The beach is 35 minutes walk. Access to central Barcelona and the Medieval old town is 15 mins away on the metro. Arriving from the airport couldn’t be easier and the airport train from Barcelona Terminal 2 stops at Clot Arago, which is a 10 minutes walk away. The train journey is about 35 minutes and also costs €1!
The communal space in the apartment is spacious and would be shared only with you and myself. I highly respect privacy and wish to ensure that any people staying have as much comfort as possible, privacy and an enjoyable stay. I am laid back and usually out more than in, with work etc, but do enjoy the occasional drink/dinner together, either in the living room or on the terrace, especially in the summertime when it is hot!
The huge terrace has received a lot of love and attention over the years. I have 2 hammocks, which you can enjoy, 2 outdoor sun loungers for sunbathing, a table and chairs and a BBQ! There are lots of plants too to enjoy such as a lemon tree, a bird of paradise tree and various other trees and plants, most visible from the room. I am currently growing avocados, rosemary, basil, mint and various other plants so you will be able to enjoy a garden feel, whilst being in the city, which can be quite rare in central Barcelona!
PREVIOUS GUESTS, EVENTS AND PARTIES
I have welcomed guests from all over the world - USA, Italy, UK, Hungary, Spain, Canary Islands, China etc and love to meet new people. People stay for 2 days to 2 months and I try to make sure that every one of the guests is comfortable and happy with their stay.
Having a huge terrace, I have hosted a few parties before, including a digital nomads meetup, a dinner experience for friends and a paella afternoon and I like to keep connected to friends and colleagues who live in Barcelona. I cook, so the kitchen is well equipped, right down to a lemon/lime squeezer for making mojitos!
The bathroom is shared and you will find a shower, sink, toilet and bidet. Then there's a washing machine too, which is separate and quiet as a mouse, since it's in a separate part of the house.
Feel free to ask any questions about the room, I look forward to meeting and hosting you. Also, I speak English and Spanish to an intermediate level, but all languages welcomed :o)

Super première expérience de dormir chez l'habitant !
Darryl est un hôte très accueillant et prévenant. On se sent tout de suite à l'aise quand on arrive chez lui. Il est toujours disposé à vous aider avec des conseils et des outils pour organiser votre séjour. Darryl est ouvert à la conversation et on peut discuter de pleins de choses.
L'appartement est très sympa et bien situé, on s'y sent bien. Bien sûr la terrasse (avec toutes ses plantes) est très agréable.
J'ai passé un excellent séjour et serais ravie de réitérer l'expérience! Merci Darryl et à bientôt j'espère !
Ravie de cette première expérience pour moi (location d une chambre chez l.habitant.) . Darryl a été d une grande aide par sa disponibilité à me donner les meilleurs indications possibles pour faciliter mon séjour et déplacements . Personne tres agréable et fort sympathique, nous avons eu plaisir à échanger sur nos différences culturelles et environnementales et nous avons souvent ri aussi . L humour est important . Je tiens par la meme occasion à le remercier encore une fois car cela n est évident pour personne de se retrouver chez des personnes quon ne connaît pas et de s y sentir bien dès les premiers instants . Milles merci Darryl. Je vous souhaite de belles choses à vivre .
Darryl is a nice and very kind host. The flat is confortable and well located in Barcelona.
I enjoyed the terrace and the lively street life of the area.
I had an excellent stay.
