Probaby the best apartment I've ever stayed in..........

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is BEAUTIFUL. Stylish, spacious, extremely comfortable and very fully equipped. You could not ask for more. Great location on a lovely street with local cafes and supermarkets near by, and the metro about 10 minutes walk away.

Lovely touches made you feel like you were staying in a boutique hotel including a welcome basket of breads, fruit, beers and wine. There were miniature body lotions, soaps, shaving kits etc in every bathroom along with slippers and lots of fluffy white towels.

I cannot recommend this apartment enough.

Short walk into Porto central with its rustic character, very friendly people and great restaurants. We had the best holiday.

Exceptional Porto Haven

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 7 friends were all so impressed with every aspect of our 3 night stay at the beautifully and inspired designed House of Duke.

The location within easy walking distance of the city centre, the Douro / Ribiera district is perfect. The local shopping area , also a walk away has good supermarkets, bakeries etc to provide for all your daily needs.

House of Duke is architecturally impressive . There’s lots of room, and light filled spaces inside and out. Fernando’s ( the owner’s) good taste and style is evident everywherea and everything in the house is of the highest quality.

Fernendo is an exceptional host. He was very quick to reply to my emails and was there to meet us when we arrived. His personal recommendations for places to visit, restaurants, local attractions etc were all spot on. We felt that we saw and experienced more than most short stay visitors.

You’ll enjoy your stay at this impressive home.

Excellent. The best HomeAway property we have ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. We were a family of five plus two grandparents and the house suited our needs perfectly. Because we had to limit our walks to only a few hours a day because of my parents’ age, we got to spend a lot of time in the house. It is an absolute gem. Fernando, the owner, has recently refurbished to whole house to the highest standards. It immediately felt like a home. The bedrooms are airy and bright and the bathrooms are beautifully executed and modern. But by far the biggest draw for us was the large, open plan living room/ dinning room/ kitchen leading to the garden which was simply stunning. The whole house was spotlessly clean and decorated with great taste. Fernando, the owner, was extremely helpful. He greeted us with a large welcome basket and all the recommendations he made for restaurants and what to see were spot on. The house itself is a short ten minute walk from the city center. It is in a residential area where you get a good sense of what a normal local neighborhood feels like, which was exactly what we were looking for. It was extremely safe. We highly, highly recommend this house. The only shortcoming is that we doubt we will get to stay at such a nice property in other cities we visit! Thank you Fernando once again for all your help.

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

The property itself is stunning, and in a great location. The amenities are plentiful and there was more than enough room for 7 blokes on a stag do. Fernando himself was wonderful, he welcomed us, popped over when we thought we had a problem with the oven (we didn’t...) and even allowed us to extend our check out time. He was incredibly approachable and made the whole stay that much more enjoyable. I have it on good authority that everyone would choose to stay here again, if every we were ever in Porto. Can’t recommend this place enough.

Beautiful property in a quite and convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We are impressed by this newly furnished property. The owner Fernando who we learnt is an achitect has designed and renovated this old house tastefully and equipped the house with all the living essentials in plenty which provided a comfort stay for me and my family. The place is located in a quiet neighbourhood with easy access to all tourist attractions. I would highly recommend this place.

We loved our stay at Fernando's house. Fernando and his wife met us on our arrival and they were so sweet leaving us treats and many goodies as well as explaining a lot about the house and leaving us lists of their favorite restaurants.

The house is beautiful and in a great location. We loved walking to and from the center everyday, it was approx a 15 min walk. When we didn't feel like walking uber or cab was very minimal (around 5 euros if that)

We had 8 in our group and the house was perfect for all of us. Fernando and his wife have thought of everything to make it as comfortable as can be. We really liked the outdoor space as well which I know in Porto is rare.

We would definitely return to this house next time we are in beautiful Porto.
