A fantastic stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of two adults and three children) recently stayed at this apartment for @ 17 days. In a nutshell - we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend and return!

From the start, communication with the owners was easy and stress-free; they are very responsive! Upon arrival, we called the owners from the airport and someone was there to greet us at the apartment within 10 minutes of our arrival - not a long wait at all. We got a nice tour of the fifth-floor apartment (there is an elevator in the building), with three bedrooms and two full baths, including a bathtub. There is a nicely furnished kitchen with a laundry room off to the side (full-size washing machine). The bedrooms were of decent size, with one bedroom having its own en suite bathroom. The owners even set up a cot / playpen for our three-year-old to sleep in - very thoughtful and much appreciated! There is also a large living room with dining area, and nice entryway / foyer.

Everything is provided for in the apartment, including linens and towels. The kitchen is very nicely stocked, and includes a dishwasher. We found pods for the coffee machine, along with a few rolls of toilet paper and a roll of paper towels, but you may want to purchase some on your own, depending on how long you are staying. We just left what we didn't use for the next tenants.

The location is very, very convenient - we took several walks down the street and across the bridge into Porto; took just 15 to walk to Porto. Highly recommend for early morning risers. My husband's family is from Gaia so we went to their homes quite often, and the location was ideal to go to other parts of Gaia, Porto, or the beaches. There is a small coffee shop at the entrance to the building, and many others within a 10-minute walk, along with a Pingo Doce (grocery store) that is also a 10-minute walk away. There is garage parking provided; if you are from the US , the tight fit in this garage with its many columns, especially manuveuring in / out of it, may scare you!

Security is very good in the building and all other tenants are extremely quiet; we rarely saw anyone coming / going. We did not hear noises from other units, except for one night when the baby upstairs was sick and screaming a lot. But that was it.

All in all, we had a great stay and really appreciate the comfort and amenities provided! This was a wonderful "home away from home" for us. Hope to return next year!

SEM PALAVRAS, realmente uma casa longe de casa...

  • 5 of 5

Sou de Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais-Brasil. Fui fazer uma trabalho de investigação na Universidade do Porto e como se tratava de um período maior, procurei por uma hospedagem que oferecesse o maior conforto possível e que recebesse hóspedes a longo prazo.

Eu e minha família tivemos o privilégio de morarmos por quatro meses e uma semana neste apartamento FANTÁSTICO. Realmente nos sentimos em casa... Os proprietários desprenderam todos os cuidados possíveis para que a nossa estada fosse, realmente, inesquecível!!!

O apartamento é super bem localizado, aconchegante, espaçoso, funcional e dispõe de tudo que uma família necessita. Não nos faltou, absolutamente, nada!

Recomendo este imóvel a todos os viajantes q

El apartamento amplio,limpio con todo lo necesario para pasar unos días de descanso y con la libertad de hacer tu vida como en tu propia casa,sin estar pendientes de horarios de desayunos y comidas como en un hotel.

La estancia superagradable.

Los propietarios encantadores,amables y entrañables.Como para volver a repetir la experiencia.

Besos para Miguel y Rosiris desde Asturias, por ser tan buena gente.

Owner's Response: Comportamiento genera comportamiento. Nos quedamos encantados con nuestros huéspedes M ª del Carmen y su familia, personas muy correctas. Su cordialidad, la sencillez, la educación y los valores nos cautivó desde el principio. Usted cuidó dela casa como si fuera suya. Es muy bueno tenerlo todo cerca, porque se las arreglaron para visitar todo lo que querían. Fue muy agradable conocerlos. Espero verlos a todos muy pronto. Hasta siempre! Miguel y Rosiris
