Great location and spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our stay. We walked to all sites yet transportation is close by. The home was clean and comfortable and we would definitely rent again. Lots of good restaurants in this safe neighborhood. Quiet at night.

Comfortable, airy, and quiet for sleeping.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures are accurate, the apartment is bright, airy, comfortable and nicely furnished. It's large, spacious, and spread out over two floors. Great for a family, very roomy for just the two of us.

The kitchen was not only nice to look at, but was well-equipped and fully stocked with supplies. That's unusual in vacation rentals, in my experience. Lots of hot water in the showers, and good water pressure.

The bedroom was super-quiet at night, though in the living room we could sometimes hear passing conversations from people leaving the nearby restaurants. But the trade-off for that -- several very good restaurants within 5 minutes' walk.

As for the stairs, getting to the apartment doesn't feel like a big climb (and I say that as a person close to retirement age), but the stair treads in some sections seemed a bit shallow, meaning you had to mind your foot placement. Luckily the landings at each level were not far apart, it's well lit, and there's a good railing, so it never felt particularly treacherous. (My traveling companion, who's skittish on steps, had no problem.) I would have appreciated a little grab bar for stepping in and out of the tub.

Lots of hills in Lisbon, and in this neighborhood -- at times it seemed that every place I wanted to go was uphill from where I was standing. :) We did need to walk a lot, to compensate for our daily sampling of pasteis de nata, so it was all good! We loved this quiet little neighborhood, set back from nearby busy streets, but within a few minutes' walk to bus and tram stops that took us wherever we wanted to go. And walking distance to the Time Out market, let's not forget that!

Easter in Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 (two adults and two teenagers) and the flat suited our needs well. It is clean, spacious, well equipped and comfortable with a good view over the rooftops to the Tagus river. It is also well located in the old town close to Santos station and within walking distance of a lot of places of interest. In the same street, within a few yards, there are 3 good restaurants offering good value meals. There is a good sized Pingo Doce supermarket close by.

Marta responded quickly to our inquiries, providing useful information and promptly returned the damage deposit. Her friend Luisa looked after us while we there and was very friendly and helpful.

We very much enjoyed our stay in the flat and Lisbon and would recommend it for any family wishing to explore this interesting and historic city. We particularly enjoyed our electric tuk tuk tour.

Amazingly authentic!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the stay in the Swallow's Nest - specially we loved the living room which was floated with sunlight and at the same time the temperature was controlled by the air conditioner. The view from a little balcony was stunning - Santos is a charming neighborhood and over the roofs you can see a river Tejo with boats and sparkling sunshine. Boys had their own room up in the attic - also very cozy space with good vibes and lot to read.

Thank you for sharing Casa Andarinhos - would love to come again.
