Guestbook comments from the owner
It's been a busy week so far but I wanted to connect with you and tell you how very much I love your apartment. At first I was quite apprehensive about the additional work it would create not having the convenience of a hotel but I must say it is so wonderful to feel so relaxed and at home.
I found the grocery store and I've been out for several short lovely walks. The way that you have set up the apartement and all of your supplies are much appreciated.
I hope that we can stay in communication so that I can book the apartment again when I am back in Lisbon.
Thank you and very best regards.
