Perfect location and lovely appointed appartment.
Joao was a wonderful and communicative host. This property is a short walk from many important sites
We found free parking very near but did not use the car till we left Porto. The spiral is a bit smallbut yhis 60 something person navigated it.
Beautiful apartment, great location, warm and welcoming host
This apartment is walking distance from so much in Porto! This is a well appointed property — our kids especially loved the loft bedroom with private bath — with everything we needed, including private laundry and kitchen appliances. Our host was kind and gracious, and brimming with local knowledge of Porto, having been born and raised there. We adored the apartment and our host, and if we’re lucky enough to return to Porto, will hope to book this property again.
Super Flat - highly recommended!
A lovely modern flat with everything needed for a happy stay.
Joao met us at Bolhao underground station and took us to the flat, and could not have been more helpful and attentive.
Conveniently close to a small supermarket in La Vie and the temporary old style market nearby, buying food is no problem, whilst having the metro just down the road makes travelling around the city easy.
If you're coming for a week, and plan to use the metro and bus to get around, go to the Andante store at the airport where you can buy a travel card which you can top up as you go. They'll explain how it works and it really is useful. (On the day you travel back to the Airport you will need to buy a Zone 4 ticket for each person).
Places to visit: The Casa da Musica for the architecture - stunning; down to the Doura and across the bridge(s);over to Villa Nova da Gaia;San Bento Station and more.
If I were going to Porto again, I'd book this flat straightaway!
Thank you for your sympathy and for being fantastic Guests. Come back always
Great apartment in ideal location and warm & friendly host.
Joao greeted us with a warm & informative welcome on our arrival. The apartment was ideally located, in easy walking distance to the shopping district & Porto’s main sites and approx 20 mins downhill to the Ribeira area by the river (or just 5 min Uber ride back uphill for €3.50). The apartment was very comfortable and ideal for our family of 4. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in such a lovely City and would recommend this apartment (and host) without hesitation. Thanks Joao!
Thank you for your sympathy and for living my apartment spotless. Hope to see you again one day. João
A perfect place to stay in Porto
This apartment is well-located, well-equipped, beautifully maintained. The owner is super nice and will do anything (within reason) to make your stay better. The kitchen was missing a can opener, I mentioned it to him, he delivered one the next day! Next time I'm coming to Porto I will surely try to stay here again.
Thank you for your kindness and for treating my apartment so well. I hope to see you again in the near future.
Comfortable, secure, convenient
Owner Joao met us at the train station and brought us to the apartment! We really appreciated that extra service. The apartment is newly renovated with simple but comfortable furnishings. The washing machine works great, and a drying rack is provided. There is a nice closet with plenty of hangars. Shower is excellent as long as you only use one of them at a time. We only needed to turn on the air conditioner a couple of times, but it worked well when we did.
Groceries are available about 3 blocks away in the La Vie Center, and a very nice restaurant is just up the block.
The upstairs 2nd bedroom and bath are reached by a very steep staircase, almost a ladder. It’s a little tricky for moving things up and down.
This apartment worked well for our 9 day stay in delightful Porto, and I am happy to recommend it.
Thank you for your sympathy Barb and Cindy and thank you for being great Guests.
Apartment located in the center of Porto, close to everything with secured accesses: metro, bus and train.
