WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Carlos' apt for ten days. It's a charming, quiet and well-equipped apt. We are a family-for-four and all of us love it, especially my daughter her alcova-room. The windows overlook the walking-street so the flat is brighting and quiet. The little bath have a nice shower. The apt is in the alfama quarter, in the upper city, so it's very easy to get around and see all of Lisboa. Carlos is very nice, understanding and quick-response before and during the stay. We'd like to come back and stay here in lisboa. I can definitely highly recommend this apt!

EXPERIENCE THE HEART OF THE CITY!

  • 5 of 5
This is truly the apartment you should stay in if you want to experience the heart of this magical city. Located in the Alfama area with everything close by; shopping, restaurants, bars, the tram, beautiful sight seeing, the river and so much more. The apartment is clean, well appointed and very quiet at night. Carlos is a wonderful host having picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at the bus station when we sadly left Portugal. He also gave great advice on what not to miss while in the city including advice and Sintra (a must see!)
I will recommend this place to anyone visiting Lisbon.
You will not be disappointed with this property - book it now!
Thank you Carlos and Margarida!

A TRULY WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
Probably the best part of this apartment is the owner Carlos. He went above and beyond the responsibilities of a landlord--providing us with all sorts of information before we left, picking us up outside of town to guide us through the maze of Lisbon streets, helping us carry our luggage to and from the many flights of stairs of Alfama (part of its charm), and guiding us out of the city when we had to leave. Truly a godsend!
The apartment was perfect--in an old building, on a charming Alfama street, only one flight down from the old trams. The decor inside was new--mostly IKEA--which contrasted well with the old world outside as well as the inside . old window seats (from which you can look down on all your neighbors as everyone does in Alfama).
The apartment contained everything--computer, modern kitchen (microwave, dishwasher, clothes washer), as well as tons of information about Lisbon and the surrounding area. Carlos thought of everything...even DVDs in English for us to watch while drinking the bottle of Portuguese wine he provided.
We've stayed in many vacation rentals throughout the world but this was truly among the very best!

GREAT LOCATION AND EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in a few extra nights following a meeting held at the Parque das Nações area. The apartments location was great, nicely located in the middle of the Alfama neighborhood. Many sights were within easy walking distance including the Castle of St. George. Apartment was very clean and the surrounding atmosphere was very quiet, but step out and go up a few stairs and you find yourself in the middle of all the action. Carlos was friendly and did pick me up at the airport and told me about the area and showed me the apartment. If you want an authentic experience to feel like a local living in the Alfama district, I highly recommend this apartment. A hotel could just not provide this same atmosphere and experience, plus the Alfama district does not have many options for hotels.

AMAZING APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I are currently staying in Carlos' apartment. It is everything we needed. We always enjoy staying as a local and having all of the modern amenities made it very convenient. A couple of recommendations while you are here. Take a taxi instead of the tram. Quicker and sometimes cheaper. Go to A Baiuca restaurant for Fado. Small, intimate and alot of fun. Do not believe the tourists books about tourist only wear jeans, white tennis shoes, sandals and shorts. Locals do to and it will save on your packing. We just got back from an overnighter to Obidos (amazing) and Fatima (interesting only if you believe in it).
You won´t find a better value in Lisbon. Live like a local!

LITTLE GEM, PERFECT LOCATION, HEART OF ALFAMA

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my partner stayed in this lovely apartment in April/May 2011.

Carlos, the owner, met us from the airport and was extremely welcoming and helpful.

The apartment is perfectly located in the beautiful Alfama district of Lisbon. We would recommend staying in this area, it's walking distance from the centre of town, and is packed with charm and great restaurants. The apartment is located in a pretty and quiet pedestrian street, about a minutes walk from the Portas do Sol viewpoint in Alfama, and the number 28 Tram.

The apartment consists of a large open plan living room / dining room, with a comfy sofa, dining table and chairs, TV/DVD, computer with fast internet connection (which was extremely useful), DVD's, guide books, etc. The space is filled with candles too which makes for a nice atmosphere. Off this main space are the bathroom, bedroom and kitchen.

The decoration is modern, and the apartment is absolutely spotlessly clean.

The kitchen is well stocked with condiments, pots/pans, teatowels, crockery etc - all you need, and there's a shop very close by for food.

Towels and shampoos, shower gels were all provided. The bathroom is small but perfectly formed. The bed is very comfortable, with good quality linens, quilts and blankets, and a wardrobe with plenty of hanging space.

The owner, Carlos, gave us lots of tips for local restaurants, all of which were spot on, he was also a phone call away if we needed anything, and when we arrived at the apartment , there were typical Lisbon gifts for us, all in all making us extremely welcome.

There are great restaurants, a cool little cocktail bar/barbers at the bottom of the pedestrian street, museums, churches, flea market and amazing views all within walking distance.

So in summary, a perfect pad, in a fantastic location, with a warm and friendly welcome - you can't go wrong and we hope you enjoy it!

Thanks Carlos and family

The apartment is located at only 100 meters from the viewpoints of the Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia, where you can enjoy a magnificent view over Alfama and the Tagus river. At a distance of 300 meters it is possible to visit the Castle of São Jorge or, on the opposite direction, the Fado Museum. With a 10 min walk it is possible to reach the Baixa, passing by the Lisbon Cathedral. Restaurants with live fado (dinner) abound, but if you prefer to cook, you can find everything you need in one of the numerous grocery stores in Alfama.
