Awesome apartment, well maintained, clean and in a great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Porto and really loved the apartment amenities and location. The two restaurants across the street were excellent for dinner and drinks. Shopping is so close with great prices. Ana is so very nice and our transition into and out of Porto was seamless. Highly recommend this property.

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!

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.
