Great house but not location

  • 4 of 5

The house is absolutely lovely. It’s clean, comfortable, well equipped, fabulous air conditioning and the host is in regular contact to make sure all is well.

However there are some significant downsides to this property that should be mentioned (I feel bad for the host because they are things are probably beyond their control but I wish we’d known & were in other reviews):

- the host did not let us know how to get into the house until the day we were due to arrive. It’s always nice to know these details before you arrive to give peace of mind that you have rented from a reliable owner.

- We had two homeless people sleeping directly outside the house all three nights we were there. There were people doing hard drugs on the road (not nice to walk your childen past) and there was a lot of shouting during the night.

Apartment with charm in Old Town Porto

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very special, set in a traditional building, with the interior modern, very clean and is very well equipped. Our family of 4 really enjoyed really our stay. The location is so central to every treasure in Porto. Located in a typically residential laneway, cobbled and steep but full of charm, so you get a small taste of the Porto lifestyle. There are lots of restaurants scattered in the surrounding streets as well as a series of convenient stores. Veronica the owner is extremely helpful and readily available if we had any queries. She was kind enough to organise our transfer to the airport on departure, which was really appreciated given we don't speak Portuguese . We had very a memorable stay. Thankyou Veronica.

Beautiful house in the old town

  • 4 of 5

The location is ideal being very central and within walking distance to the old town and the house is lovely. You can tell that it has been lovingly restored, but there are a few things that are starting to get a bit tired (tiles coming off the wall in the shower for instance). We didn't really use the kitchen but it was well equipped and the layout of the house was really comfortable. The neighbors were also very nice and definitely kept an eye on the street! Veronica was wonderful and understanding and we would highly recommend staying here! We would stay here again for sure!

Perfect property in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The property is ideally located between the historic part and the trendy University area of town.

The house was spotlessly clean and we felt very well looked after with every question immediatly answered.

Thank you for a fantastic stay!

Comfy, Homey and Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

Veronica is so responsive and helpful. The apartment was a welcome respite from running around beautiful and hilly Porto. Had all the amenities we love---like a dishwasher, Wifi and a coded door--not having to keep track on your keys is a real asset. Everything looks sparkly new. We would stay again in a heartbeat.
