The Cool Kids

Because you're part of the in-crowd.

Will I like it here?

Yup. For sure. This place is the perfect balance of cutesy and artsy and is located in hip and happening El Born. It's also not far from the beach. Come on. That's hard to beat.

Really? Tell me more...

You're not going to believe your luck when you arrive and find four balconies. Almost one for each bedroom - except one of them is off the living-room. Enjoy people watching and pick up style tips from this area's trendy residents.

We think this property is ideal for professionals or students who consider themselves rather cool. This apartment is bright, stylish, but also comfortable, and this area is full of snazzy cocktail bars and places to dance samba.

Your top 3 reasons to live here:

  • This place is contemporary, sleek, and feels very welcoming.
  • The beach is only 20 minutes away on foot.
  • A porter downstairs provides extra security.

But you need to know this...

  • Smoking's allowed - but only outside.
