Porto is a beautiful city and staying at this property was a perfect choice for us. Location was great, a scenic 15 minute walk into the old town, with the tram directly outside, along with the hop on/hop off buses. There is a fabulous local restaurant downstairs that serve the freshest fish (cooked over hot coals) along with a variety of local wines. A well equiped supermarket is literally just down the road. The apartment was exactly like the photographs ; clean, spacious and a view that is amazing. The kitchen would have to be the most well equiped kitchen I have ever stayed in. Definitely a home away from home! We have two children who slept upstairs and they enjoyed the space up there of an evening, whilst my husband and I sat downstairs, sipping wine and looking out the open windows. Cristina was a fabulous host who gave us tips on places to see, things to do and restaurants to eat at, most of which we did. (Even when we forgot a place to eat at when in an area, Cristina text us the address! She also kindly booked our taxi for us to get us back to the airport when leaving.) Get your walking boots on and visit Porto. We will return again!

“Amazing apartment, amazing location”

It was lovely to meet Cristina on arrival to Porto. She very helpfully gave us ideas of the best to see in our short 3 night stay. The apartment was perfect, set over two floors it felt airy and spacious and the huge windows showed the view of the river at its best. Our view of the river was only slightly blocked by the fun and festivities of the locals celebrating their success in the Euros! The apartment was perfectly placed for river walks into the main town but there were plenty of lovely restaurants and a supermarket on our door step so we didn't need to go far. Cristina also kindly drove us to the airport which made our journey home much easier. We would definitely return and recommend this apartment to friends.

This apartment looked pretty amazing in the pictures, but cannot do justice to the actual experience - so stylish and beautifully designed and converted. Cristina was a fantastic host, offering pick up and drop off to the airport, and a wealth of information about the beautiful city of Porto.
We loved sitting on the balcony looking at the river with a cold glass of Vino Verde (or two!) and I cannot recommend highly enough.
We hope to return - 2 days were not enough to see this fantastic city.

Thanks Cristina!

“Stunning Porto Apartment”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This rental was exceptional. Very clean( I am very critical on this issue). It was beautifully decorated, with an incredible view of the Douro River. I also thought the location was good for public transportation and centrally located. Cristina was a very good host - she met us, gave us lots of good tips for sights, transportation, tours and food. Further she was very accessible during the stay for questions. Be aware that there are several sets of stairs to the apartment and the apartment itself is on two floors. It was not a problem for us, but could be for some

We were fortunate to have stayed here for 3 nights with another couple. Cristina is a beautiful host full of great information about Porto and its features. From restaurants, cafes to great sightseeing etc it was nice to have a host meet and greet you with such perfection.
Apartment had everything you could need but with such an array of restaurants we didn't cook I thing! The view is stunning from both levels whilst the top floor opens up to a gorgeous balcony overlooking the river to enjoy a glass or two of wine. The upstairs bedroom features a huge room with couch, lovely comfortable bed and bathroom with beautiful trimmings!
Overall an absolute delight!
We were fortunate to score a park right out the front, however, that can prove to be difficult at times.
