Gorgeous Views

My husband and I stayed in this apartment for 6 days. It is closed to everything and absolutely lovely! If I ever have the chance to go back I would definitely stay there!!!! The pictures do not do it justice!

Comfort and amazing views of a beautiful and friendly city

  • 5 of 5

This was a memorable holiday. This was first time we have felt pampered in a rented apartment. This was partly because of the luxurious linen sheets and top quality towels but mainly because of the kindness and friendliness of our landlords. The location is perfect and the view is outstanding. All the equipment was well chosen and worked. We have no complaints.

We arrived earlier than expected but met Marcela Jr who greeted us and then made every effort to have the apartment ready, and we were not disappointed, WOW!! the views were even better than the photos.

The apartment was immaculate, clean, modern, fresh and convienient to visit Porto across the bridge (walking) and we even had time to go the beach!

It was a complete pleasure to stay here and we will be staying again.

Don't look any where else..... this is the perfect location!!

Thank you so much, just wish we could have stayed longer

Central Location with Beautiful Views!

  • 5 of 5

Since this was my first time to Porto, I wasn't sure where to stay. After staying here, we realized this was the perfect place! The apartment is comfortable and clean while the owners (Ana and Marcel) and their son (Marcel Jr.) were very welcoming and helpful -- giving us recommendations for restaurants, wineries and places to visit. Thanks for a great trip!

A lovely modern apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The spotless apartment was made all the more pleasant by a warm greeting from the hosts (along with local pastries and a glass of port that they provided). It is a small apartment with limited cooking options, but there are dozens of restaurants within a five minute walk. The view over the river changed throughout the day and provided a great sense of the city.
