Huge, luxurious, best location in Porto - such great value for the money!

  • 5 of 5

We can't imagine a better rental in Porto! A very large two bedroom two bath apartment with full kitchen, dining room, and very large living room. Very modern and luxurious. Amazing location - only one block to the waterfront and a number of nearby restaurants. The master suite upstairs has a large deck with an amazing view of Porto, the bridge, and Gaia. Our only small disappointment is the apartment's lack of any essentials like coffee, sugar, paper towels, etc, in the kitchen and shower soap or shampoo in the bathrooms. Not a big deal, but renters should be prepared (or go to a nearby store).

Perfect Porto Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Wow. This place is awesome! It is literally the nicest HomeAway apartment that I have stayed in over the last 10 yrs. The location is fantastic. The views from the upstairs bedroom are spectacular. It is clean and modern and spacious. I really can not say enough about how beautiful the views are from this place. Everything was perfect.

Fantastic accommodations and a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and I just spent 9 days in Porto at this apartment. The apartment is lovely with plenty of space for all of us to relax and sleep. The view from the master bedroom is magical. The location is ideal, we walked everywhere and only took the car when we left Porto. There is a car park directly across the street and a very convenient mini Spar for groceries right down the street. Lovely food is just steps away down by the river or up the street. Would definitely rent this apartment again and recommend it to friends.

We enjoyed our stay very much.

  • 4 of 5

Location, location, location. The apartment provides an excellent place from which to explore Porto. There are stairs before one reaches the elevator and there are limited amenities provided but the the unit is very comfortable for two couples.
