Owner was not available to show us the apartment, entry by way of code lock. This apartment does not have heat, just an electric heater. When I contacted owner he was able to come the next day at 9 pm. Wood stove was available but no wood, he consequently brought wood on day 3. No clothes rack available washing machine worked but owner had to bring clothes rack when asked. No folder with instructions only manuals on the stove and washing machine in a bottom drawer and in Portuguese only. Did not attempt the tv. When I asked about the trash I was told to leave it outside front door on the street, the next morning the trash was all over the road which we picked up. Kitchen plates glasses pots and pans were in high cupboards that required a step stool to access these. Apartment was clean but dark. Parking was hard as not available on the same street. Some more care to details needed to make this place a better rental. It is important that owner or representative be available to explain how equipment is operated.
I find your review very strange.
I STRONGLY recommend that before any booking you read the house details.
1. The manuals are in 4 languages;
2. The clothes rack we only provide on request (wich we did);
3. The same for the wood (on request);
4. No AC (as in the house details);
5. There are bin bags on the street;
PS: i also find very strange a guest leaving 5 garbage bags on the house
Beautifully presented house in very good location close to canal and good restaurants.
This is a beautifully designed and tasteful house with good facilities. It has a lovely outside partially covered sitting area. the location is great and close to all amenities. Philippe met us at the house on arrival and the welcome was great as well as the information he gave us about the location and Aveiro. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house.
Thank you so much. Always a pleasure to have such guests.
Great little house in a very central location
We based ourselves in Aveiro to explore the coast and nearby cities by bus. The central location made it easy to visit everything Aveiro has to offer such as canal trips, museum, cathedral, shopping, but also to access buses for the coast - we loved the beaches and the nature reserve - and cities such as Coimbra and Viseu, which are both well worth a visit. The flat was well equipped and comfortable - pity the sun doesn't reach the lovely courtyard in November though! The owner communicated well by text, but it would have been more helpful if he had been able to meet us on arrival, instead of sending his father who was very nice but had limited English and was not able to answer all our questions about the flat. We soon settled in, though, and really enjoyed our stay.
Thank you for the feedback 🙂
Love the house with the blue door!
We stayed for 17 nights in this very modern & extremely clean house in Aveiro.
Felipe, the owner, is prompt in responding to any & all enquiries - he is a very gracious & helpful host.
The kitchen is a perfect open space for cooking, the bedroom is spacious with plenty of storage for clothes - and the bed is very comfortable. The bathroom is small, but light and airy - with a good sized shower and great water-pressure. The open-plan living area leads to a small enclosed courtyard, which is comfortably furnished. During our stay Felipe visited us regularly with clean bed linens and towels.....although there is a washing machine in the house. Wi-Fi was strong and reliable.
The house is perfectly positioned in the old town of Aveiro.....although only steps away from shops, restaurants, cafés and the canals it's on a very quiet street....so great for sleeping.
Thank you Felipe - it was a pleasure to meet you.

Renovated Fisherman's Cottage in Aveiro
Filipe communicated very well before and after our arrival. He explained all we needed to know to enjoy our stay in the recently renovated small house. We were impressed with the well designed make over that was very liveable for us. The cottage is in the oldest part of town and it was close to all sights and restaurants. Parking nearby was easy and free. The car was safe for the 5 nights. We were able to pull up at the front door to unload and load our luggage.
Excellent accommodation in Aveiro
The 'Blue Door' house is a traditional property in an older part of Aveiro with a bright, modern interior (lots of natural light). Travelling as a couple, we found it very comfortable and well equipped. It is also very coveniently located, in a peaceful neighborhood but just a short walk from all of the amenities in the city. All of the facilities in the house worked perfectly - good shower, large comfortable bed, high speed internet and a kitchen area that is really practical for preparing meals (though we didn't make a lot of use of it because of the wide range of good quality restaurants in the area). Filipe is a great host, is always very quickly responsive to enquiries and keen to make the rental process as easy as possible.
