Guestbook comments from the manager

The first thing to say is this is somebodies home so it comes with all home comforts and is very well equipped. The property is in effect a first floor flat/apartment with the entrance at the front on ground level. It is very spacious there are separate lounge, dinning and kitchen areas all of which are all well equipped. The TV system and Wi-Fi are excellent. There are 3 bedrooms currently one double, one twin and one single, a bathroom with a combined shower and bath plus a toilet. There is also a separate 2nd toilet. At the rear of the kitchen is a large veranda area, with a comfortable seating area. We did not use this much due to the poor weather when we stayed. The apartment is situated about 10 minute walk from two 'metro' stations and it is a very easy journey into town and the airport. There is also a Supermarket about 7 minutes walk away and other shops and restaurants near the one Metro station. The host are very helpful and friendly, one of them was there to meet us on arrival and during the stay are only a phone call away if needed, they arranged for a taxi back to the airport that cost €18. I would happily stay there again and will recommend it to friends.

Comme chez des amis

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes accueillis par Branca et Antonio comme par des amis, ils sont serviables, chaleureux et à vos petits soins. Leurs maison, proche d'un joli parc, est spacieuses, très bien équipée, très propre avec en prime une grande terrasse très cocooning. Nous avons découvert Porto ville très attachante pleine de charmes et de curiosités.

impeccable et très convivial

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Branca et Antonio.

La maison était très propre et prête à nous recevoir. Les propriétaires sont très charmants et attentionnés.

Les renseignements que nous avions reçus avant notre arrivée furent très utiles et appropriés.

La maison est située à +/- 20min à pied du centre ville, 3 minutes du métro et à quelques pas des commerces utiles.

Le séjour y est calme et l'équipement ultra-complet.

Nous recommandons avec enthousiasme

Votre feed-back pendant votre séjour nous a toujours laisser ravissantes et au moment de rentrer chez nous et voir les belles conditions dans lesquelles vous avez laissé notre maison nous fait vous avouer que vous êtes des plus beaux voyageurs que quelqu'un veut accueillir. Homeaway devrait avoir la possibilité des hôtes évaluer leurs voyaguers. À vous et à votre famille je donnerai plus de 5 étoiles! Très Cordialement, António Borges.

Warm Inviting comfortable well cleaned house!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a total of 4 nights in this house. The shower was hot, the kitchen was well equiped and actually had sharp knifes! Beds were very comfortable and rooms neat and tidy. The Metro is about 5 minutes walk from the house and fairly frequent (We didnt make use of the buses). There is a Butchers, Store that sells fish and place that sells some vegetables etc very close by. There is also a PingoDoce supermarket about 5 minutes from the house. Although we did not make use of it there is a large spacious terrace with sofas that would be very inviting in warmer months. You will also find some local bars/resturants within walking distance. All in all best place to stay if you plan on visiting Porto.

Good base to visit Porto

  • 4 of 5

We had a good stay in Porto in the house of Branca & Antonio. We had a very warm welcome & the house was very well prepared for our arrival with all amenities needed. Not too far from the centre by metro, in a pretty quiet place. There was a lot of space for our children to move around, especially with the patio/terrace. They appreciated the park with nice children playground, however there is no entrance near the house so we have to walk 5 min (10 minutes with children !) to get into the park. The kitchen is well equipped for family dinners & breakfast. Even if the road is not very busy, it can be a but noisy during the night because it is paved with cobblestones. To move around, we have used a lot taxi. There are not expensive and really efficient - there is as well Radio Taxi service.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind remarks! You have highlighted the welcome and care that are important for guests and we have an huge pleasure to do it! It's true that the street it's paved with cobblestones but it's a secondary one only for locals , as you said, not busy. Guests like you,Pierre and Marie and Your lovely children, who appreciate our home, make us glad to share it. Welcome back! Branca & Antonio.
