About the Area
Our house is located in the city of Barcelona in a quiet and safe place. We are 20 min. from the city center (when using underground) and about 30 min. drive from the airport.
The underground is just in front of my apartment and there are a lot of underground and bus options using these stops.

Mari is a fantastic person, always very kind and helpful. I couldn't have hoped for a better place for my one week's accommodation. The flat is located in a very quiet and comfortable area, and it is very close to the metro, so it is easy and fast to go to the centre to visit the city. I thank Mari for her attention to making guests feel comfortable. I would definitely recommend it.
MARI was extremely kind and helpful, she made my stay comfortable and nice. The description of the apartment is accurate. staying at her place was one of our best experiences i ever had. thank you Mari for everything.
Amazing, amazing , amazing! I am very glad to have met Mari and the sweet little cats. We connected instantly and I had a very fun week. I am sure to visit her and the cats again!

I’m a student from Japan. We are understanding each other just a few days.because she likes Japanese culture. And she is very nice, friendly and helped me a lot. Also her cats are so sweet!
Long story short, Maria is simply an amazing host and a great friend. :)
I have enjoyed staying at her place, and I believe anyone else would too. I came as a guest left as a friend. Strongly suggesting anyone picking her place as it can only make the whole experience better. Her cats are lovely as well, the whole atmosphere is warm and friendly, which makes it a perfect place for anyone...
I wish her every success in the future. :)

Nous avons passé 15 jours inoubliables chez Mari. Elle est vraiment agréable, serviable, gentille, on peut rire avec elle et aussi discuter tranquillement sur sa belle terrase. son appartment est trép propre, agreable, calme et proche de la station de métro et bus ainsi que des commerces.
Le voisinage est calme, durant notre séjour nous étions tres contents car l endroit est vraiment calme tout en etant a cote du centre de Barcelona.
Marcellito, Sophie, Nadia et Mia sont ses adorables chats, ils sont tres doux et adorent les calins. Mes enfants etaient ravis d avoir pu jouer et s occuper d eux. Mari parle tres bien francais et c est tres appreciable pour moi qui ne parle pas espagnol
je recommande tres tres chaleureusement Mari, c est sur qu on retournera à barcelona chez elle.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Mari is a terrific host. She is friendly, kind and welcoming.
