Dear Mrs. Puigdefàbregas Serra:

It has been the distinct pleasure of our extended family to stay in Casa Serra for the past two weeks during our holiday in Barcelona. The apartment exceeded all of our expectations, and greatly enhanced out enjoyment of this wonderful city. Please allow me to elaborate on a number of features from a guest´s perspective that may be helpful to prospective tenants in the future.

The location is central and in a very nice area. We never had any apprehension walking to and from our late night outings. The building is quite secure with a locked front gate. Shopping, restaurants, markets, and metro station are only a short walk away - and a wonderful bakery is literally a few steps from the front door. Taxis are easily flagged from in front of the building or on a major thoroughfare only half a block away.

The building is a substantial stone edifice that is both charming and in excellent condition. There is access to the upper floors by an elevator or by the stairwell that surrounds it. Though the apartment is officially on the "third" floor, it is actually five floors above the street - providing distance from any street noise. The apartment itself is quite spacious, with 15 foot ceilings through the entry, entertainment and dining areas. There are large windows throughout the apartment. The extensive woodwork, hardwood floors, ceiling treatments, and fine furnishings give the apartment an ambience that is both warm and elegant. With multiple living areas, we found it easy to have several activities going simultaneously - Scrabble, Foosball, television, reading, conversation. Similary, because the bedrooms are well away from the living areas, our different generations could maintain independent sleep schedules without disturbing each other. The multiple bathrooms also allowed our large group to bathe and dress with easy efficiency.

The kitchen is fully equiped with gas stove and oven, microwave, large pantry, cooking utensils, and ample pottery/glassware. A full-size refrigerator/freezer is just outside the kitchen in a serving area. Unlimited bottled water was available from a free-standing cooler next to the refrigerator. We hired a chef to prepare most of our evening meals, and comfortably seated 14 at the dining room table. The washer and dryer in the utility room appeared to be new, and we found their presence to be quite helpful in our extended stay. We also appreciated the innumerable "fully-equipped" details that made Casa Serra a low hassle experience - from corkscrews, bread box, to iron, to the rolling shopping bag. Finally, you were quite prompt and gracious in responding to any assistance that we required during our stay.

The bottom line is that our quarters were so comfortable that we felt little urgency to leave them, though we knew that there was much about Barcelona that we had not yet explored. Thanks for making Casa Serra available to us. We look forward to another visit in the future.

Best regards,
Mark D. Cunningham
