Two adults and a small dog stayed in this lovely apartment for a week in early December. It met all our needs and then some. It was well equipped, modern, and stylish. The owners went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and gave us quite a few suggestions on sites to see, places, to eat, and even a few of the out-of-the-way places for locals. All recommendations were spot on, too. The apartment is well situated to explore wonderful Lisbon and it was close to transportation needs. I can't say enough about their hospitality and the apartment. We'd definitely rent it again when we return to Lisbon. Unfortunately, we never did find the turtle in the garden. The neighborhood is quiet and full of life and honestly, the apartment would work for longer stays as well. A great find. (We even had help lugging up our luggage up from one of the owners as there are a few stairs but nothing of concern.)
This was an absolutely lovely accommodation in a quiet, convenient location. It was very comfortable and we really enjoyed spending time in the peaceful garden. It has everything that you need which makes it feel like home. The host was very helpful and responded very quickly to an enquiries. We would definitely stay here again!
Very comfortable apartment, quiet, kitchen very well equipped, patio a great place for drinks and meals. An excellent host. A very nice place to stay. We would highly recommend.
This apartment was excellent. The location was convenient, close to transport and a small supermarket and close to other shops. It was very quiet , clean, and well equipped. The owner, Luis was extremely helpful throughout our stay.
Three of us stayed for a week in this very comfortable apartment located in a pleasant residential area. We especially enjoyed the garden and its resident wildlife. What a pleasure it was to sit on the terrace enjoying breakfast and planning the day's sightseeing. Luis was helpful and informative throughout our stay. He also recommended a great fado restaurant and the very good Indian restaurant nearby. The kitchen is very well equipped if you wish to self-cater. Delicious pastries and bread are available from the nearby pastelarias, there is a good supermarket opposite the house, and the market is at the end of the street. There are metros and buses a short walk away so it was easy to reach all areas of the city. I would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Lisbon.
My husband and I spent four nights in this lovely apartment and enjoyed every minute. As frequent travelers, we were pleased to find everything we needed after a long day of sightseeing. The property was very clean, bright and spacious. With a small market across the street, we could easily stock up on food for breakfast and lunch. The location was ideal and the back garden made us wish we had one like it at home. Luis is a charming host and I highly recommend this home if you're visiting Lisboa.
