Very comfortable, excellent locations.
Excellent quality apartment, very cooperative and courteous owners. Apartment equipment is very good: comfortable, modern, working, clean. Everything you may need. The location is fabulous. Easy walk to the Metro Station. The Metro will take you anywhere you'd like to go in Lisbon: down to the tourist attractions (literally a hop) or to the airport. It will take you about less that a minute to learn how to navigate the Metro. The neighborhood itself is busy residential-commercial mix. I spotted one grocery store right across the street, two nice bakeries within 1 minute walk, plenty of truly local restaurants, meaning places where the locals dine, and a department store, if you'd like. If you want to rent a car, there is a car rental agency within less than a five minute walking distance. I did rent a car to take a trip outside Lisbon. Parking is a challenge, but doable.
Hi K., thank you very much for your kind review! We're really happy that everything went well during your stay in our apartment in Lisbon. We would be glad to welcome you back... you have to visit us with nicer weather... April is famous in Portugal. Hope to see you soon. Best wishes, Luís.
Perfect property for our conference and sightseeing
Excellent location located between Pavilhao Carlos Lopes convention site and downtown Lisbon, only 15-20 min walk to either. Very close to Metro as an alternative or Uber is €4-6 to practically anywhere in the city. Convenient grocery store for your purchases, and very quiet rooms for sleeping. Loved the outside garden terrace. Hosts are wonderful and reply to your questions very quickly. I would highly recommend a stay here and would come back on a future trip.
Thank you for the warm review Robyn! It was very nice to meet you both. We are very happy to know that you have enjoyed your stay. Thank you also for the Canada flag you left us that we will proudly display in the apartment. And yes, hope to see you soon for a longer vacation, as Lisbon has so much to discover. Best wishes. João & Luís
The neighborhood met all our needs.
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.
So good to know you have enjoyed your stay! It was great to meet you and to be able to give you some suggestions and recommendations. We look forward to welcome you again next time in Lisbon, hopefully with your recovered friends from afar.
Top notch rental in a great location
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.)
Hi! It was truly great to meet you and be able to talk and walk around Lisbon with you. We wish all goes well in your "grand tour" of Europe, and hope it largely exceeds your expectations. Looking forward to meeting you again in Lisbon or elsewhere. Best wishes!
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!
