My husband and I rented the Ghost apartment (2 bed/2 bath) for one week while in Barcelona with friends. It is very rare for the photos to look like the actual place but it did (and maybe even better).
The location was AMAZING...it was our first time to Barcelona and we had no idea where to stay but we were 5 minutes away from almost everything. The kitchen was totally stocked with the proper cooking utensils and olive oil and spices which was perfect because you don't want to have to buy all of that on vacation and throw it away. We would wake up, make breakfast and coffee and sit in the sun room ... beautiful... i felt as though we were home (it was that comfortable). Also the place was VERY VERY clean. My hairdryer didn't work and we couldn't figure out how to use the ipod speakers at first but the owner immediately came up. They were both very personable and helped us with reservations and anything we asked.
There was one inconvenience that wasn't their fault but there was construction next door that made noise which was something that couldn't be avoided. On the night that we went to a wedding, they let us stay in the room across the hall (and have both apartments) so that we wouldn't be woken up by the noise when hungover..i thought that was incredibly good service.
Overall, I wish they had an apartment in every city in europe because I would always stay with them...
p.s. i had friends staying in nice hotels and paying much more and they thought our apartment was better than their room
