Flat in Barcelona center and close to the beach!

A comfortable flat, a lovely area in the city center but close to the beach!
Hi, I'm  Teresa, I'm retired (before: History teacher and Principal at High school.)
My flat is located in "Poblenou"( in Catalan;" Pueblo Nuevo" in Spanish), an area where the textile industry developed at the end of the xix century. But this neighborhood began a great transformation when the Olympic Games of 1992.
Nowadays it's a mixture of ancient and new buildings and some ones, like mine, fair constructions of the "60s. It  preserves a familiar atmosphere and there are some commercial streets with a lot of shops, supermarkets, a traditional market,  bars, restaurants, chemists..)
My flat (65m2) is situated in a very quiet street, only five minutes from the underground station "Poblenou" . Some buses stops are very close, too. You need about 15/20 ' to reach the centre of the old city (Barri Gotic, Gaudí, etc..),by underground or by bus.
In 3' on foot you are in a beautiful park, Poblenou Park .If you cross it you arrive at the beach in 4'.. There are some restaurants, not expensive, where you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner looking at the sea.
If you like walking along the beach, you can reach  the new Port Olimpic, Barceloneta, Port Vell in 15-30'. And in 10 ' on foot you can reach the new area "22@" with a lot of new design buildings of famous architects.
My flat is on the 7th floor. We have lift. Above, only the community enclosed terrace, so: not neighbours, not noise!!
My flat has: an entrance; to the right there is my study with a  wide window looking out onto  the city ( it's the guest/bedroom, too); on the left  there is the dining and living room with a simple sound equipment,; then a small but remodeled and complete kitchen  with glass-ceramic hob and a modern electric oven, the individual heating, (not dishwasher)..,; the bathroom (wash basin, bidet, shower stall,, w.c); a sitting-romm  with the t.v, directional antenna, DVD, a comfortable sofa and some tables. it's an open room and you can see a lovely square and the sea throw  its window; a laundry with the washed-machine, and the principal bedroom with  a double bed .
Two air conditioning units ( one in the living/dining room and the other in the bedroom) provide an excellent temperature in all the rooms during the summer. And for the winter we have individual heating!
Free Wi-Fi I could leave you a computer during your stay at my home.
I would be holidaying with another friend or alone.
I want exchanges with no more than 2 persons (no children)  and in places with good public transports.
(I don't want pets at my home but I could take care of your cats. I love them!)
I answer all the offers and I would be grateful if you do the same
