Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Joao is an exceptional host. He picked us up from the train station and made sure all was well. The apartment is meticulously kept, very sunny, beautifully decorated with everything you need, including a washing machine and lovely clothes line. The location is excellent as away from all the tourists by the water but still walkable to everything. A lovely pedestrian street Santa Caterina is very close by with lots to see, as well as the market and many interesting shops nearby. Very close to downtown Porto. Enjoyed coming home to this lovely apartment at the end of a day exploring. Absolutely perfect and highly recommended.

Very good óption in Porto

  • 4 of 5

New apartment with everything you need to spend couple days in Porto. Enough for a couple with two small kids. Has a fully equiped kitchen and good living area. Well decorated and super clean. The apartment is located in an old building, is well located in downtown ......close to subway and supermarket. The owner (João)was very helpful and gave us great tips about the city and neighborhood. If you have a car, just consider the difficulty to park in the area.
