Description of the Barcelona vacation townhouse rental
Planning a visit to Barcelona? Imagine staying in this unique converted loft while there...
Located in the heart of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, this loft boasts many immenities. Downstairs, the ceilings are 24' high with original Brazilian wood beams. There are two front doors, both orginal and 22' in height. Open them to glimpse an incredible view of the 2,000 year old Roman wall (the original city boundary)... and only seven feet away! The main living area is very spacious. Relax on one of the couches while listening to your favorite CD or simply enjoy the view. There is a large dining table that seats eight, in addition to a cozy breakfast nook for two. Sample our local wine collection! There is also an entertainment room with TV and VCR (enjoy our movies and books too). The loft has two king beds (one located in the unique second floor loft) and one full bed. The kitchen is well equipped and of course, stocked with all plates, utensils, etc. The loft is also equipped with shower and one bathroom. Please note that this is a true European bathroom; it is located on an exterior terrace. The shower is in an enclosed room, as is the toilet on this terrace.

We found Lisa and Derrick on VacationSpot and were very pleased from the second of our confirmation. We had frequent contact before the trip in March, they were very helpful in sharing tips of traveling in Barcelona, Lisa also sent us other photos of the loft and directions, but nothing could compare with the breathtaking beauty of their home when we arrived. Decorated in simple but very comfortable IKEA furniture, the cool orange and green loft with ceilings so tall, and great wooden doors opening to windows that looked right onto the non- car street where a Roman wall reminded us that we were in a very old and lasting place, the charm ,the charm the charm. We were truly awed by the beauty of such accomadation, and felt immediatley welcomed and at home. The loft offered three choices of sleeping rooms, a great kithcen and den, a wonderful balconyed room for writng, but best of all was the bathroom actually located in the courtyard of the building, with seperate enclosed shower and toiletn and a great veiw of the barcelona night sky. we absolutely loved it. Located in the hippest part of town, the Barrie Gothic, we were close to everything. The sea was a five minute walk. The famous La Rambla was a five minute walk. We had our choice of wonderful Spanish resturants and cafeterias, where we often sampled different tapas. We loved getting lost down the little curvy streets, and were constantly impressed by wide variety of peformers and stunnig architecture. Lisa and Derrick gave us tips on cool spots to check out, but we were just as happy staying in, actually feeling conflicted about not spending enought ime in our little haven . Being able to shop in the incredible food markets and cook our own meals in such a wonderful place, it was such a treat, we felt very spoiled. The loft in Barcelona is the best Urban Paradise we have ever had the pleasure of seeing. We have come home and urged all our friends to save so we can go back for a week because three nights was not enough. If you're going to Barcelona, you should stay in the Barrie Gothic. And if you stay there , don't even think of a hotel. We stayed in one on the way home before an early flight, and spent around $50US for a virtual office cubicle. The tinyest room, w/ just enough size for a bed and narrow path to the bathroom. You will feel like you want to feel on vacation at Lisa and Derricks, very very, special. We can't thank them enough for opening their home to us, and feel too that we now have a home in Barcelona too.

Myself and 5 friends stayed here this past October. The layout is wonderful. Four of us cook for a living and the kitchen suited us fine. We had no problem cooking for six. After walking through the Gothic Quarter, I liked being able to open up the 22ft doors and relax while watching other people walk down the street. Sometimes they would even stop and say hello. The bathroom on the terrace added character to the entire feel of the home. The crisp morning air was great. I stayed in the loft and when we go back, I will make sure I get the loft again. I commend Lisa and Derrick on their home. The decor fits the mood and life of the home. I can''t wait to go back.

What we craved the most was to wander into another world and at the same time, be a part of our surrondings in culture, in food and even in everday chores.... Your loft was our own for seven days and it became our home. Walking thru the neighborhood, touching ancient stones and walls and smelling the scents of the bakeries, we ralized you can combine the old with the new. It is sad for us to leave, yet wonderful to to know that we have found and experienced what Barcelona has to offer. Thank you for opening your home to us.
