                                                                                                      We stayed for 4 nights and it was lovely! The apartment is clean, beds are comfortable (I recommend an extra blanket for each bed.), showers worked well, and kitchen was well equipped. We didn't make any meals (just coffee, toast, and heated up soup.). It is spacious and from the veranda you see the part of the castle and the sea! It is walking distance to a supermarket and cafes. Communication with Heart Soul Lisbon crew was always pleasant in their emails and gave quick responses. We were welcomed by Francisco, who was friendly, helpful, and nice. He even helped us with our luggage, which you do have to walk a bit to get to the building (up hill). That was the only difficult part was dragging our suitcases up a cobblestone street. We drove our car to Lisbon, but if you come by taxi you can get dropped off right at the door of the apartment building. Only residences' cars, taxis, and tuktuks are allowed in the area. So we parked in the closest parking garage. It was about 14€ a day. Being from the NY area we thought is wasn't too bad. The location is quiet overall, but remember their are lots of hills. I would recommend this apartment! I felt safe, comfortable, and enjoyed it's views. Sincerely, Rosa
