About José Luís Azevedo

I was born in 1972 and I am a designer.

I live in the apartment across the one I am renting. I was in charge of both apartments’ full renovation. I love the old quarters of Lisbon and their historic buildings. I always wanted to live in this part of town.

I love meeting people from abroad and I deal with my guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between.

I try to be as helpful as I can in order to make you feel truly at home.

José Luís Azevedo purchased this apartment in 2008

Why José Luís Azevedo chose Lisbon City

I specially picked this neighborhood to live in, because it’s undergoing an interesting transformation - from heavy industry and naval related commerce and services to becoming “Lisbon’s Design District” – with shops, universities, studios and company’s connected to design and architecture moving in.

Another great advantage of this neighborhood is that you can walk to all the busiest areas in downtown and you have all main transports and station near bye to take you everywhere else (including the beach). There are also all sorts of restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, etc. all around. Also, in the center, it is still one of the few areas where you can find a place to park. Two blocks away, there are two public parkings for your car.

This is an area that is still not too touristic and feels truly Lisboan without being excessively “popular.”

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment has a great vibe. It's airy and full of sunlight all year round. It's in a high floor, so you have more privacy, security, sunlight and less impact from the street.

The building is original from the XVIIIth century, right after the great earthquake of Lisbon which took place in 1755. It was built in a typical 'Pombalino' style, a type of construction and architecture that are protected by law and candidate to UNESCO's World Heritage Patrimony classification. The building is mainly assembled with wooden beams, in a “cage” like structure inspired in naval construction from the period. A type of construction quite advanced for its time and considered to be the first anti-earthquake type of construction in the world. It is flexible, but it doesn’t break.

The renovation of the building and the apartment took in consideration this historical heritage. However, you will find a modern apartment with sound proofing on the ceilings and windows and all you should expect from a modern home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Eine schöne Ferienwohnung im Stadtteil Santos-o-Velho im Zentrum Lissabons

Die Ferienwohnung liegt in der vierten Etage eines stilvoll renovierten Hauses in der Rua da Boavista 120.

Wir, zwei Ehepaare, waren im März 2013 für drei Tage in der Wohnung und haben uns dort sehr wohlgeführt. Der Empfang durch den Vermieter, Herrn José Luís Azevedo war ausgesprochen freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung besitzt zwei geräumige Schlafzimmer, ein Badezimmer, eine separate Essküche und ein sehr einladend eingerichtetes, großes Wohnzimmer sowie einen kleineren Abstellraum. Gut geeignet ist die Wohnung für zwei bis vier Personen. Die Wohnung ist sehr sonnig, ruhig, vollständig geschmackvoll renoviert mit Liebe zum Detail. Sie bietet kostenloses Wireless-Internet und Kabel-TV (80 internationale Sender).



Von der Wohnung aus ist das Zentrum von Lissabon gut zu Fuß zu erreichen, man kann natürlich auch die historischen Straßenbahnen nehmen, die durch die Rua da BoaVista zockeln. In der Nähe befinden sich einige gute und reelle Restaurants, Herr Azevedo berät hierzu seine Gäste gerne.



Hier noch eine kleine Besonderheit des Hauses : unten im Hausflur befindet sich neben dem Treppenhaus eine kleine Schusterwerkstatt, wo ein älterer, freundlicher Herr beim Licht einer kleinen Lampe Schuhe repariert. Er hatte gut zu tun.



Wenn wir noch einmal zu viert nach Lissabon reisen sollten, würden wir diese Wohnung wieder gerne mieten.

living amongst the nicest people in the world

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I just came back from a wonderful 10-day vacation in Portugal and Spain. We opted for an apartment in lieu of a hotel. I am glad we did! The people in Portugal were the nicest and the most genuinly friendly people I have ever met. Our host was definitely one of them. Our fantastic host, Jose Luis greeted us with open arms and heart. He helped us plan our trip, recommended places for us to eat, as well as simply chatting with us, making us truly feel at home. The apartment was super clean and tidy and contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to feel like they live amongst friends.

Either here in Lisbon or in Brooklyn NY ; ) Best regards, JL

Great central location in Lisbon, very clean and comfortable apartment! Jose was an absolute angel of a host. Our flight was delayed and we didn't get to the apartment until after 1 AM, he was so friendly and took all the time to welcome us and show us around. We'll be back!

Amazing Find In Lisbon!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing find in Lisbon. The apartment is clean, well decorated, and had everything we needed to feel at home. The apartment is also very big and spacious. Ze Luis was a perfect host and helped us with everything that we needed. He also gave us great advice and suggestions of what to do, where to eat, and how best to get around town. The area of town was perfect. So many good restaurants close by, close to night life, and is very quiet. We loved out time at this apartment and highly recommend staying here!

The property was very modern, clean and well equipped and the beds were comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Jose was a great host. When we arrived he showed us around the apartment and told us how everything worked and said that he lived across the hall so if we needed anything to contact him and it would be sorted. He then showed us the best areas to go to during our stay and where the supermarkets and best places to eat were located. It made our stay much easier as we had great insight into Lisbon which as this was our first time in Portugal helped immensely. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a fabulous experience in Lisbon. Our thanks to Jose for his wonderful hospitality. Caroline and Margaret. Adelaide, Australia.

Very nice apartment, near city center of Lisboa

  • 3 of 5

It was easy to communicate with the owner, who was at the apartment when we arrived. He had given us information on how to get from the airport to the apartment and it was very easy to arrive at the apartment, by taxi. The apartment is situated on the fourth floor, and is a light and cosy apartment, with all that we needed for a prolonged weekend in Lisboa. There are a supermarked in both directions (approx. 100 m) of the apartment and it is very easy to get to the city center as well as restaurants and cafés that are situated in the nearby vicinities.

Sadly though, the weather was not with us, as it poured down with rain nearly all the time we had, apart from a couple of hours on 2 of the days. We can easily recommend this apartment to others :-)

Owner's Response: Hello, Thank you for your review. I am so sorry that the weather and rain spoiled your stay. It was really bad luck because we had an amazing week with temperature around 30ºC just before your arrival. :( Anyway, at least I am glad you liked the apartment. I hope that if you return to the city you'll be able to find it sunny and enjoy more the town. Regards JL

Wonderful place to stay longer

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren zum ersten mal in Lissabon - eine wundervolle, aufregende Stadt, freundliche Menschen - und wir mittendrin. Die Wohnung ist perfekt - das gilt für die Lage, Ausstattung, Sauberkeit und vor allem für den überaus zugewandten Vermieter! Alle Aktivitäten starten direkt von der Haustür - zu Fuß, mit Tram oder Bus durch die Stadt.

Ein Tipp, falls man nicht immer im Restaurant essen möchte: Frischer Thunfisch und Scampi aus der Markthalle (ist ganz in der Nähe), kurz in die Pfanne mit Olivenöl und Knoblauch, dazu Baguette und Wein - herrlich frisch und unglaublich lecker!

Wir hatten eine Woche Zeit und es erscheint uns im Rückblick zu kurz - wir kommen wieder!!! Hoffentlich auch in dies schöne Apartment :)

Herzlichen Dank an José
