The apartment is in a great location, clean and well equipped with everything you need within walking distance or a short journey on public transport . Paulo (the owner) took time to answer any questions and to let us know where to visit and places to eat and drink, things to see and do and responds to messages promptly. We would definitely rent this property again on a return visit to Lisbon and would highly recommend it to anybody visiting Lisbon . We really enjoyed our 4 days in Lisbon. Thank you Paulo for making our stay comfortable and relaxing. We very much appreciated everything and the airport runs 😄

We had a wonderful view from the balconies of the River Tagus. We were shown around when we arrived by a lovely lady who cared for the place and was keen to make sure that we enjoyed our stay.
