Very nice property in central Porto

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful updated apartment in the heart of Porto. Great views, and convenient to everything. The only problem was parking, the best value was across the river. Restaurants all over the place.

I would definitely stay here again.

Excellent location and beautiful design.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. The location was excellent although it is a noisy area. The views were excellent from the apartment. Both bedrooms are truly master bedrooms.There were a few small things that kept this review from being 4 or 5. First, we were allowed only 1 set of keys for two couples. The coffee table and dining room tables are too big for the area. Otherwise, the apartment has a nice modern design.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. A second set of keys or even a third is always available for our customers. This is probably a misunderstanding. A second set of keys implicates automatically a higher security deposit.

Great stay in Porto!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well located apartment in the historical heart of Porto. The apartment is very well appointed and was perfect for our family. The views from both floors are amazing. Marc was very helpful. He gave us very good recommendations for places to eat.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was in a perfect location in Porto. It was within walking distance to everything - sights, restaurants, the river. The lovely 2 bedroom/2 bath setup was perfect for the three of us. We really enjoyed the outside deck. Marc and Claudia were easy to work with and were there to meet us upon arrival and departure. Just lovely.

Fantastic Rental in Porto

  • 5 of 5

Clean, modern, spacious, and in a perfect location this apartment makes a stay in Porto a wonderful experience. With comfortable furniture and amenities, the views from this top-floor two-level are amazing. Located one block from the waterfront and just a few minutes' walk from everything in old town Porto, I would recommend this rental to everyone. Probably the best apartment rental I've experienced so far and in a city that is now at the top of my favorite places list.

Fabulous property in a great position

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in Porto in this great apartment. Perfect position just back from the Riviera lots of restaurants and bars nearby though we tended to walk into the city where it was less touristy. The balcony from the master bedroom has wonderful views across the waterfront. Porto was a great city small enough to walk around although a little hilly, helped to walk off the huge meals and pastries! Couldn't see everything in the time we were there so will definitely be back and can't think of anywhere better to stay.
