                Tout avait été tellement bien organisé en amont par notre hôte Glenn,qu'à peine arrivés à Lisbonne vendredi soir nous avions toutes les indications pour arriver à bon port rapidement et sans encombres . Glenn nous attendait sur place et a fait preuve d'un sens de l'hospitalité que l'on ne rencontre pas souvent . L appartement en rez de chaussée était tout à fait conforme à la description ,très propre et refait à neuf , aucun point négatif. Le quartier est idéalement placé pour des touristes. Mention spéciale au propriètaire des lieux dont la convivialité et l'humour est vraiment rafraichissante .

                Laurel Lovers Hideaway was the perfect accommodation for us in Lisbon. We were greeted on arrival by Glenn Cooper, who walked us through the information about the amenities in the apartment, the proximity to shopping, restaurants, tram 28, and so forth. The apartment was actually roomier than we had anticipated based on the photos posted on VRBO site. He even suggested we begin asking directions in the street with Portuguese "desculpe" as a courtesy. That was a valuable tip :). He gave us his phone number and encouraged us to contact him for any reason: info, questions, etc. The apt. is conveniently situated in Bairro Alto, a 10 minute walk to Rossio Train station, close to nightlife and shopping, but on a quiet narrow charming cobblestone street. We will recommend it to friends without hesitation. Glenn is a personable, helpful host.

Esta decorado con muy buen gusto, todo es nuevo y muy comodo. Glenn nos recibio muy bien y nos dio todo tipo de recomendaciones muy utiles.

                Doubt you'll find better apartment accommodations in Lisbon, plus in such a great location! The apartment we stayed in was fresh, newly renovated and absolutely delightful in every respect. Glenn is the best host ever -- he knows just how to make his guests feel right at home and that's exactly what we did...turn the spacious studio into our home away from home. Very, very comfy and a great spot in the Bairro Alto!

                As a New Yorker who often visits Paris, I know that when renting an apartment abroad, location is of the utmost importance. This extremely charming and perfectly equipped apartment, has the most ideal location for late nights in the Lisbon "area of the moment," Principe Real/Bairro Alto. Walk just 2 blocks from the thick of the activity to this quiet oasis and enjoy all the comforts of home. The owner has thought of everything when recently renovating this space. You will want for nothing!

                My girlfriend and I were the first guests after the renovations of this apartment in Lisbon. What a great place! Centrally located in a historic neighborhood (Bairro Alto) of Lisbon and walking distance to restaurants, bars, shopping, parks, and other sites. Amenities like the washer/dryer, full kitchen, comfortable couch and bed, chic shower head, WiFi, and cable TV made us feel at home. The apartment is also warmly decorated in a modern style with a Portuguese touch, such as azulejo tiles and artwork. The owner, Glenn, is a good resource for restaurant recommendations and other advice on what to see and do...very hospitable and responsive should you need him. We would definitely stay here again when in Lisbon, and based on this experience would rent with Glenn when in Paris.

                I wanted to personally send you a virtual thank you note! Our stay in Lisbon at your newly-renovated apartment rental in Bairro Alto was absolutely wonderful. We could tell that you personally paid attention to every detail. From the choice of comfortable flooring to Azulejo Portugal tiles and artwork donning the walls to cozy furniture and linens, it definitely felt like a home away from home! Your hospitality was also on display that first night when you left coffee on the counter and milk in the refrigerator. Having a jolt of caffeine that next morning after a long flight was just what we needed! I also have to say that walking out the door to the cobblestone streets filled with such history and grandeur was incredibly easy to first time visitors of Lisbon. And to top it all off, your apartment was brilliantly located in a neighborhood filled with amazing restaurants and lively nightlife. Again, thank you so much for your hospitality!

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Originally from New York, I lived in Paris for 22 years and owned a small rental business that I personally managed including all inquiries and guest services during their stays with me. I love Lisbon and now live here in the Principe Real/Bairro Alto neighborhood, which is my favorite area of Lisbon. It is ideally located; very central with easy access to everything Lisbon has to offer and yet very quiet at night, which is important to me. I appreciate a quiet environment when I am home and I want to offer this to my guests. I live very close to the building where this apartment is located and I am always available to answer any questions or help my guests during their stay with me.

              Why the Owner Chose Lisbon:
              This apartment is located in a beautiful historic Lisbon building which is in my favorite neighborhood (Principe Real/Bairro Alto). I live a few feet away from the building and believe that this is the best place to stay in Lisbon. Easy access to everything, and yet quiet and calm which is important for big city living. The building has high ceilings on each floor which makes the space very open and light. This apartment always feels bright which is another big plus for my guests.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              An ideally located location and a beautiful apartment that I just entirely renovated and furnished with great furnishings. After renting apartments for the past 20 years I have learned to ensure that my guests' needs are always met and we have everything you could want for a stay in Lisbon.
