Simply perfect rental in Porto!!

  • 5 of 5

Isabel is an extraordinary hostess, from the moment we inquired about her property until she drove us to the door of Europcar at the airport and ensured that our rental car with them was in order before saving goodbye. Her goal is to ensure that your experience in Porto is fantastic. She made dinner reservations for us, responded immediately to our inquiries and gave countless suggestions of what to do and see. The apartment too exceeded our expectations, it is very clean with good appliances and well stocked for cooking though Porto has so many delicious options for meals we only ate a couple of breakfasts at the apartment. We were surprised at how much storage space was available to us through the thoughtful design of the reno. In addition, the location of the apartment is ideal. We also loved Porto and hope to return, though we know we will have to plan early in order to book Isabel's apartment. After four days at Isabel's apartment we left feeling like we were leaving a friend. Thank you Isabel!!

Fantastic location and an adorable apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Isabel, the owner, was most accommodating and considerate. The apartment was spotless and spacious. The kitchen was well appointed and the bath was more than adequate. A definite place to return to.

Beautiful flat in historic Porto

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful flat that Isabel has equipped with everything you will need. Situated 100 metres from the Douro, you can catch the bus, the tram or walk easily to many restaurants and historic sites. Bring your walking shoes, everything is uphill, both directions, or so it seems but worth the effort. Isabel has many recommendations, she is spot on, try the Intrigo Restaurant, a 5 minute walk for the best sunsets over the Douro River. Secure a table on the deck, you won't be disappointed. Reasonably priced with featured signature dishes of pork cheeks, etc, cod cakes or traditional Portuguese fare. Thank you Isabel for providing such a comfortable and welcoming flat and your valuable travel tips.

Relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

The White House is a spacious studio apartment with a small balcony. We looked forwards to returning after a long day out. Isabel picked us up from the airport and pointed out key locations on the way here that was really helpful to help get us settled. She texted us with key events throughout our stay and made sure our stay was the best possible. It is a great location with the river front only a 5 minute walk away. Although there are great restaurants nearby also such as Intrigo. She has a book that guests write in and leave tips and recommendations of where to go, so you will never be stuck of knowing what to do. Overwall we had a spectacular holiday enhanced by both the kindness of Isabel and the comfort of her lovely apartment! Thank you Porto!

Beautiful experience

Our stay in Porto was short but wonderful. My husband, daughter and I loved the fully renovated and fully equipped apartment in the heart of the historic centre. Isabel was a very attentive host and ensured that we were well taken care of, thank you!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 days in Porto were fantastic. The apartment was clean, very comfortable and had everything we needed. After walking all day around the city it was nice to come back and enjoy the quiet space. The apartment is in the perfect location for exploring by foot or hopping on the tram or bus. Perhaps the best part was the kindness of our host, Isabel. She was available to answer any questions, make reservations at restaurants and offer suggestions of things to see and do. We would recommend this property to friends and family without hesitation.
