A comfy flat in the middle of a night -life area. The street is quiet in the day but lots of bars and clubs at night. It is well sound-proofed so this isn't a problem and there are lots of restaurants in 5 mins walk. A huge bed in the main bedroom and lots of wardrobe space in both. The balcony is a nice extra for an evening drink. .Thankfully there is a lift but there are 11 steps up to the lobby so maybe not good for limited mobility. Pedro was really helpful with advice on trips. Thoroughly recommend.
We stayed here for a week this summer. When we arrived we received a warm welcome at the gate and supported to park our cars on the driveway immediately. We were shown to the accommodation by our lovely hosts and then told that we could knock on their door below at any time if needed. The accommodation has all the necessary equipment needed for a holiday in Porto and was ideally situated near the the bus stops (Number 15 bus to and from Porto). If arriving by bus I would advise that you ask the driver to stop on the road near the surf shop; however if you reach the beach then you need to get off on the first stop and walk back up the road.
The beds are perfect if you like a very firm mattress and my only request would be for more pillows (one is never enough) but other than that I cannot fault this lovely accommodation. There were 8 of us staying here for a week and there was plenty of room to spread out, with a lounge, 2 balconies and a sofa on the large landing upstairs. We were given free reign of the patios on all levels and able to use the BBQ if we wished. Our hosts were available if needed, and always offered an Olà or Hello each day if we saw them.
We hired cars, but didn't use them for the whole week as the buses were regular and easy to use. If I were to return I would not hire a car. We were advised by our lovely hosts to try the restaurant at the bottom of the road on the beach...it was amazing, but I would recommend booking.
Beautiful walks along the beach with plenty of refreshments available and the walk to the nature reserve is lovely with plenty of rock pools for the children and pedal karts for hire to keep the children entertained.
Overall the accommodation was clean, comfortable and with a warm welcome and a view of the sea, what more could you ask for. Thank you!
