How to close down the apartment when you leave?

The apartment is simple to use. Things are pretty intuitive, and here are a few tips to help you.

Question Answer
Boiler Switch this off (the switch is just underneath).
Bed linen & towels To help the cleaners get things ready for the next person, please put your washing into the machine (and place over a drying rack if you have time). Try to pop the towels into the washing machine early in case there’s lots to do.
Windows Close all the windows.
Balcony doors Put the balcony chairs in the living room when you leave.
Remember to lock the bolts at the top and bottom of the left hand door when you go out, as well as the main door handle.
Aircon Switch off so the light goes off.
Do switch off when you go out too.
Rubbish Barcelona has separated and mixed waste. The instructions for which bins to use are in the side of the bins in the street on the crossroads to the left when you leave the apartment. Typically the recycling groups are:
  • 1.Paper & Card
  • 2.Glass
  • 3.Plastics and tetrapacks (‘bricks’)
  • 4.Food & mixed landfill
We normally put all groups 1-3 in a bag in the kitchen and just use the space under the sink for 4
Locks Lock both the top and bottom locks every time you go out as well as when your holiday is finished.
Kitchen and bathroom Please replace any things you’ve used so the place is ready for the next person.

Giving the keys back Normally we’d simply ask you give them back to us in London soon after you land (we’ll try to give you a self-addressed envelope to make it easy).. There may be some rare times we ask that they’re left in this cupboard by the door (we’ll text you if that’s the case)
