- foreign teachers, researchers and students: Instituto Superior Técnico is within walking distance, and the Lisbon, Nova and Católica Universities are less than 15 mins away by metro.


- expat directors and business managers: the apartment is in the financial and business center of Lisbon, near the major banks and insurance companies.


- consultants working in projects in Lisbon: with 2 independent bedrooms and with easy access to the main transport networks, the apartment is less expensive and more convenient than an hotel.

Clean Flat near three metro lines

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this flat with three generations, kids were aged 3 - 11, myself, and my mother-in-law. The place was wonderful, it had everything we needed. I wish we had been able to enjoy the garden more, but we found ourselves out and about until late in the evening, Lisbon had so much to offer. The flat is not in the center of the downtown, but it is close to three metro lines, which makes getting anywhere simple. It is an easy ramble down a main drag to get to the Lisbon Center, or a quick metro ride. Luis was wonderful, quick to answer all my emails, helped with taxi for our departure, and welcomed us at the flat with a cake and suggestions for our trip. A grocery store across the street is very convenient for meals that we had at home and snacks. The location was also very quiet during the night. Highly recommend Luis and his flat for a holiday in Lisbon!

Lisboa Garden Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Jayne F. What a lovely experience we had at this comfortable homey apartment-plenty of room for the 4 of us and with an added bonus of a garden to sit in on balmy nights. It was clean, quiet and well stocked--the owners were charming to my sister who arrived much earlier than the rest of our party of 4 and they were helpful in pointing us to transportation in the area which we found close and easy. The grocery store right across the street received many visits and we fell in love with the cheese there. We walked to some sights and used the close by metro for others. Our only wish was for a longer stay. We will certainly recommend to friends who are contemplating a stay in Lisboa.

Lisbon Garden Apt in Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

When our group (4 older women) arrived at the apartment, the manager/owner, was there to greet us and familiarize us with the apartment. The apartment was beyond our expectations. It was roomy, airy, clean, and Joao had arranged to have twin beds in each of the 2 bedrooms. The two bathrooms were also larger than we had anticipated and very modern and clean. The kitchen was well stocked and very usable. The garden was beautiful and private. The best surprise was the location as we were within walking distance to all modes of transportation, restaurants, markets, bakeries, sites, etc. Joao (manager/owner) spent time with us going over the map to orientate us to our location and branching out. He was very helpful and always available by phone or e-mail if we needed anything. He arranged our transport from/to airport, and we got to meet a delightful young man who was our driver who offered his services to us if we wanted private tour of city. We loved the apartment and would go back in a "heart beat".

Owner's Response: Hi B., It was great to meet you and your friends. We are very happy that you've enjoyed your stay and, next time, we'll remember to have a bottle of Portuguese red wine to welcome you all, instead of the fresh white we had... :D Hope to meet you soon in Lisbon again! Best wishes, João

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt

  • 5 of 5

Danke lieber Luis, du hast uns nach Mitternacht liebevoll empfangen, uns das Appartement gezeigt und hast dir auch die Zeit genommen, uns einige Tipps über Lissabon zu geben. Wir 3 Frauen haben den Aufenthalt in dieser grosszügigen Wohnung sehr genossen. Es war ruhig, wir haben super geschlafen. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und wir haben keine Einrichtungsgegenstände vermisst, es war alles da, sogar eine Nespresso Kaffeemaschine. Es war leider kein schönes Wetter, und trotzdem konnten wir auf dem gedeckten schönen Sitzplatz unseren Tee trinken. Die Metrostation war nur 5 Min. Fussweg entfernt und ein Einkaufsladen direkt gegenüber der Wohnung. Wir kommen gerne wieder und können diese Wohnung ohne Einschränkungen weiter empfehlen. Danke.

Great place to stay while in Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a gem, so close to everything you need. The supermarket just across the street has very nice food. There is a bakery, chocolate shop and several excellent restaurants all within a very short walk. Luis the owner was so very accommodating, he met us when we arrived and also when we departed, even carrying our luggage into the apartment. IF we had had better weather we would have enjoyed the beautiful garden, a bit too cold in March. The photos do not do this apartment justice, much nicer than the photos and in a very quiet safe neighborhood. Easy excess to metro, taxis and hop on hop off bus.
