About José Luís Azevedo

I was born in 1972 and I am a designer.

I live in the apartment across the one I am renting. I was in charge of both apartments’ full renovation. I love the old quarters of Lisbon and their historic buildings. I always wanted to live in this part of town.

I love meeting people from abroad and I deal with my guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between.

I try to be as helpful as I can in order to make you feel truly at home.

José Luís Azevedo purchased this apartment in 2008

Why José Luís Azevedo chose Santos-o-Velho

I specially picked this neighborhood to live in, because it’s undergoing an interesting transformation - from heavy industry and naval related commerce and services to becoming “Lisbon’s Design District” – with shops, universities, studios and company’s connected to design and architecture moving in.

Another great advantage of this neighborhood is that you can walk to all the busiest areas in downtown and you have all main transports and station near bye to take you everywhere else (including the beach). There are also all sorts of restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, etc. all around. Also, in the center, it is still one of the few areas where you can find a place to park. Two blocks away, there are two public parkings for your car.

This is an area that is still not too touristic and feels truly Lisboan without being excessively “popular.”

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment has a great vibe. It's airy and full of sunlight all year round. It's in a high floor, so you have more privacy, security, sunlight and less impact from the street.

The building is original from the XVIIIth century, right after the great earthquake of Lisbon which took place in 1755. It was built in a typical 'Pombalino' style, a type of construction and architecture that are protected by law and candidate to UNESCO's World Heritage Patrimony classification. The building is mainly assembled with wooden beams, in a “cage” like structure inspired in naval construction from the period. A type of construction quite advanced for its time and considered to be the first anti-earthquake type of construction in the world. It is flexible, but it doesn’t break.

The renovation of the building and the apartment took in consideration this historical heritage. However, you will find a modern apartment with sound proofing on the ceilings and windows and all you should expect from a modern home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Eine schöne Ferienwohnung im Stadtteil Santos-o-Velho im Zentrum Lissabons

Die Ferienwohnung liegt in der vierten Etage eines stilvoll renovierten Hauses in der Rua da Boavista 120.

Wir, zwei Ehepaare, waren im März 2013 für drei Tage in der Wohnung und haben uns dort sehr wohlgeführt. Der Empfang durch den Vermieter, Herrn José Luís Azevedo war ausgesprochen freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung besitzt zwei geräumige Schlafzimmer, ein Badezimmer, eine separate Essküche und ein sehr einladend eingerichtetes, großes Wohnzimmer sowie einen kleineren Abstellraum. Gut geeignet ist die Wohnung für zwei bis vier Personen. Die Wohnung ist sehr sonnig, ruhig, vollständig geschmackvoll renoviert mit Liebe zum Detail. Sie bietet kostenloses Wireless-Internet und Kabel-TV (80 internationale Sender).



Von der Wohnung aus ist das Zentrum von Lissabon gut zu Fuß zu erreichen, man kann natürlich auch die historischen Straßenbahnen nehmen, die durch die Rua da BoaVista zockeln. In der Nähe befinden sich einige gute und reelle Restaurants, Herr Azevedo berät hierzu seine Gäste gerne.



Hier noch eine kleine Besonderheit des Hauses : unten im Hausflur befindet sich neben dem Treppenhaus eine kleine Schusterwerkstatt, wo ein älterer, freundlicher Herr beim Licht einer kleinen Lampe Schuhe repariert. Er hatte gut zu tun.



Wenn wir noch einmal zu viert nach Lissabon reisen sollten, würden wir diese Wohnung wieder gerne mieten.

living amongst the nicest people in the world

  • 4 of 5
My sister and I just came back from a wonderful 10-day vacation in Portugal and Spain. We opted for an apartment in lieu of a hotel. I am glad we did! The people in Portugal were the nicest and the most genuinly friendly people I have ever met. Our host was definitely one of them. Our fantastic host, Jose Luis greeted us with open arms and heart. He helped us plan our trip, recommended places for us to eat, as well as simply chatting with us, making us truly feel at home. The apartment was super clean and tidy and contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to feel like they live amongst friends.

Owner's Response: Hello A.,

Thank you very much for your comment. It was a pleasure receiving you as guests in my apartment. I am glad you enjoyed your stay here as well as the city and the people of Lisbon. I also enjoyed very much meeting you and your sister.
Maybe we'll meet again someday. Either here in Lisbon or in Brooklyn NY ; )

Best regards,

Very good!

  • 5 of 5
We are in love with warm Lisboa :) People, food, sightseeing, ocean!
Jose, the owner, was very nice, willing to help, hospitable and patient with 4 crazy girls.
Ideal for 3-4 friends travelling together, close to touristic routes, cafe-restaurants, shopping area.
There is only 1 minus - no elevator in the building, but who cares.

AMAZING Lisbon Apartment Experience!

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time we rented an apartment in our travels! It was an amazing experience. The apartment is exactly as pictured, except better because you are actually in Lisbon and not imagining it through a computer! It is in a great location, only a short walk from everything you need, main sights, transportation, great food. Jose was a wonderful host, lives right across hall, which is great in case you have any issues. He even sat with us when we got there and walked us through a map of all the main sights and places he likes to frequent himself, even called us a cab for the morning that we had to leave! Overall, great experience and hope to be back again soon!

Wonderful Base to Explore Lisboa

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at Jose Luis flat in Lisboa. Everything was as described. It was 4 flights up, but after walking the hills of Lisboa this was nothing. Pictures are correct in showing the apartment. Jose Luis was a perfect host, he described places to eat, sightsee and enjoy. He was very accessible via What Ap texting for any questions. Flat was clean, well stocked and nicely remodeled in an old building. Several things to note, the neighborhood is several streets away from one of the party areas of town. For some reason the partiers seem to like to sing loudly at 4 AM. Also there is noise from the street below (garbage pick up, sea gulls, etc.) If you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. Overall an excellent experience for 2 adults and 2 early 20's children as a base to explore Lisboa. Thanks Jose Luis for allowing us to stay at your place. Hopefully we will be back

Owner's Response: Hello,
Thank you so much, I am glad you had a nice experience in Lisbon and in my apartment.
Sorry to learn you're a light sleeper. Regarding the singing people passing by the street, this was the week of Lisbon's Santo António's festivities and it is like that around the entire city center, and as you say, we are not far from the party areas but not in the middle of them. As for the seagulls' chants and the garbage collection outside, we can't really do much about it, but I assure you it's the first time someone mentioned it to us. Sorry that they disturbed your rest.
Best Regards,
JLA
