About Maria Pinto
I'm a retired chemistry teacher living in Estrela for almost 40 years. This is one of the best places to live in Lisbon or for a short stay as it's right in the heart of the city. Today, I spend my time traveling and taking care of my dog, also retired from chasing other dogs and pigeons ;-) in Estrela garden, as she is a Labrador with 14 years old! I love to travel and meet new people and cultures. Me and my daughter Joana, pay special attention to all of our guests and provide all information or support you might need, so that you can enjoy Lisbon&Tagus river, cause they are really a "one of a kind" duet!
Maria Pinto purchased this Apartment in 1978
Why Maria Pinto chose Lisbon Old Town
If you want to feel what a "lisboeta" (a local habitant of Lisbon) feels like, this is the place to stay. Here you'll wake up in the morning and listen to the sound of 28 Tram in the street. You can also enjoy breakfast on the balcony and walk into the Estrela Garden to get some coffe while enjoing the pleasure of walking bare feet in the grass! During summer months you can also have the lucky to enjoy a Jazz festival (MEO Out Jazz) that takes place in Estrela garden and brings a very ecletical and young audience. There is no better place to feel like home!
What makes this Apartment unique

100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Perfection in Lisbon
This was the most perfect and beautiful apartment we’ve been too. It was perfectly located in Lisbon. We felt at home and comfortable. Maria and Joana are the perfect hostesses. The apartment has a warm charm. We will definitely be back!
Everything perfect, from the first impression to the very last minute!
Thank you Maria for your kindness and Joanna for the good recommendations and the sailing adventure!
This appartment is incredible, well appointed, decorated and extremely clean in a very good neiborhood....the Basilica and the park nearby. Very easy for the transports all around town and safe.
Don't miss the sailing boat!
See you again soon beautiful Lisboa!
Dear Natalie and Pierre, thank you for your great review! It was a pleasure to meet you both and to welcome you at our Estrela home. Personally I (Joana) loved the hours that we've spent together. Besides being a kind couple, you are both great talkers. We felt we could easily spend a day with you, sharing and enjoying both our life experiences and the amazing views of Lisbon on board THOR. Hope to see you a next time, soon ;-) A big hug to you both, Joana & Maria
The hosts were awesome. Too the time to let us know the area, restaurants and places of interest.
The online booking was quick and easy. The accommodations was awesome, very clean. Central - inexpensive using Uber to get to different places.
Would definitely recommend ! We had a bit of a problem were I thought I lost my passport , only to find out my sister was carrying my knapsack. We missed our bus to Seville. The host Maria was great in helping us find alternative cheap routes. Bus from Lisbon to Faro, then again by bus from Faro to Seville.
Bonaventure - from Vancouver Canada
Dear Bonaventure, what an adventure to welcome you! You are an amazing and happy family that made every time that we met a happy one :-) It’s difficult to put it in words but your joy is contagious. We will, for sure, remember you, Louis, Maria and Elizabeth. Thank you for all your kindness. Warm regards from Lisbon, Maria & Joana
Lovely apartment. Wish we could have stayed longer
Dear Diana, thank you for your kind review. You will always be welcome to Estrela home. Definitely three days just give you a scent of our city, our light, our river, our gastronomy and our people. They are an aperitif for a new trip to what was once the capital of a vast empire. We will wait to see you again so you can experience a bit more of Lisbon and our suggestions ;-) Kind regards, Joana & Maria
We enjoyed our stay and found it very clean and in a super location. The hosts were very helpful with recommendations.
Hi Diane, thank you for your kind review and for mentioning our “super location” as most people that come to Lisbon for the first time don’t have any clue about where to stay, geographically speaking, and many think that this location might be to far from the city center, which actually is not, at all! From here you can easily walk to Commerce Square in a 30 min walk (2,2 km) and always going down ;-) After if you are too tired to come back home walking, you can get the 28 Tram that will leave you in front of your apartment :-O Plus, this is a family and calm neighbourhood, with a delicious garden nearby, perfect to rest at the end of your days exploring Lisbon and the suroundings. We wish you manage to come back to see more of our beautiful city :-) Kind regards, Maria & Joana
This property was as advertised. Clean and comfortable. The hosts were most helpful and we truly enjoyed our sailing afternoon with them. I would recommend this property.
Hi Joyce, thank you for your kind review and recommendation and for giving us the opportunity to make a difference in your stay in Lisbon. The sailing afternoon was really good and we truly appreciated sharing our passion, sailing, with you. Hope to see you a next time in Lisbon, Maria & Joana
