Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Staying in Porto was a surprising trip (didn't know how beautiful Porto is) and the icing on the cake was staying at Marc's unit. The condo was decorated VERY nicely, had all the modern updated appliances including a washing machine, which was a great convenience for our four night stay. Location is walking distance to beach through beautiful park in the back area and Hop on Hop off bus is at end of corner. Would love to spend time again in this condo. Thank you Marc and Claudia for your efforts in us having a wonderful time in Porto.

Perfect location and wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time in Porto and in many areas of Northern Portugal. This apartment was perfectly located for day trips...Coimbra, Aveiro, Braga, the Douro Valley...

Marc was a very welcoming and gracious host. He was so patient and helpful with our late arrival and gave great recommendations on restaurants in the area as well as how to find grocery stores. The park next to the apartment is so big! and absolutely beautiful! Be sure to take some time to enjoy it. You can walk all the way to the beach. Marc is rightfully very proud of it. A nice stop at the end of a long walk is at the Songwich restaurant...a glass of beer and a snack on their outdoor terrace was lovely.

The apartment was well appointed, well cared for and comfortable. We were a party of four adults. We found the second bedroom and bathroom a little small for two adults...that bedroom and bath would be better for two children, but we managed very well and would definitely stay here again!

Our introduction to Portugal was perfect! Thank you Marc!

We had a great time in Porto. The apartment was not downtown but it was in a great area right at a beautiful huge park with great restaurants and grocery stores close by. It was easy to get downtown, cabs came very quickly. Much better to go that way than try to find a parking place. The apartment was great except the bed in the second bedroom was difficult to get out of and the bathroom very small.

Great apartment & welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

After a long drive from San Sebastián what a joy to be warmly greeted at this apartment which presents exactly as shown in the advertisement. Ideally located close enough to Porto, about 25 minutes on regular buses ( stop 200 metres away ) & in close proximity to the ocean ( about 10 minutes walk). All of this, a well appointed apartment with balcony overlooking huge leafy park & a good host! Would we recommend? Most definitely

We found the apartment ideal for two couples as it would be for a family of four. The location is prime. The appliances are excellent, the view is outstanding, and the cost is quite reasonable. If we return to Porto, we would definitely wish to stay there again.
