The neighborhood met all our needs.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Lisbon was enhanced by this very comfortable lodging and our hosts were very helpful with tour guidance. Very pleasant to wake up and start our day with coffee in the garden. The adjacent mini market met all our grocery needs and the pasty shop on the circle was perfect for a coffee and late afternoon snack. We plan on booking this apartment the next time we are in Lisbon.

Top notch rental in a great location

  • 5 of 5

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.)

Beautiful apartment. Everything you could possibly want!

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!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Hi S., We're really happy that you've enjoyed our apartment and the resident little turtles in the garden! :D Portuguese cuisine is really wonderful, fresh fish and seafood, as you may have tasted in "Cave Real". But we also have great international restaurants in Lisbon, and we are lucky to have maybe the best Indian ("Zaafran") just across the square and one of the best chinese ("Grande Palácio Hong Kong") at walking distance. And if you also had the opportunity to go to "Senhor Vinho" you may have had a memorable fado evening! Thank you very much for your feedback! It is good to know that you've returned home safely and we hope to have the pleasure of receiving you again in the future. Best wishes, Luís had
