About José Luís

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 purchased this apartment in 2008

Why José Luís 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 Hip District” .

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.

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.

A Gem in Beautiful Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

Where does one even begin? Jośe and his apartment are fantastic and this could even be an understatement. Words cannot describe how lucky we were to find Jośe's beautiful flat for a recent trip to Lisbon. From the reservation process, to communication and arrival, he was incredible. Upon arrival, he was there to assist getting our bags up the stairs and spent an hour telling us all about Lisbon, making recommendations on what to do/see and getting to know our family. Jośe's personality is just delightful and getting to know him was truly a gift to my grandmother, mother and myself! The apartment is beautifully appointed and maintained with very comfortable beds, a stocked kitchen and all the vacation necessities one may need. The apartment location is fantastic and walkable to any major tourist attractions, a grocery store, shopping and restaurants. After a long day off exploring hilly Lisbon, a cab is also an affordable option to the apartment (€6 from just about anywhere in the city). We loved the city, the apartment and Jośe! Cannot wait to return to this incredible city hopefully in the near future. Thank you, Jośe!

Owner's Response: Dear Anna, 'Mom' and 'Grandma' :) Thank you so much for your kind words. I really appreciate your nice comments, but above all I am really glad you enjoyed your stay in my flat and your vacation in Portugal. I do feel happy if I contributed a little bit to that. It is a pleasure for me to be able to maintain a personable relationship with my guests within the true spirit of the "sharing economy" with which I do rent this only apartment I own. I do enjoy being hospitable and above all to meet such nice people from around the world such as your family. Sometimes I'm left with the feeling that I wish you lived closer, because guests like you, make me feel like if I'm hosting close friends or family! Hoping you may return soon, I thank you for renting my flat and wish you all the best. A special kiss to 'grandma' ; ) J.L.

Beautiful appartment in a central location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days in this place with our 2 young children (5 and 8 years old). The appartment is spacious enough for all of us. Beside the fact that it gets louder at night with couple bars downstairs, but it was really quite when we shut the windows. There is no A.C. but the weather was ideal and we didn't need it. Location is perfect, the apartment is situated closer to main attractions (5 to 15min walk). Need to be in a better shape to go up on a stairs (4 levels up). But Jose is very helpfull;

He was able to help us carry our heavy luggage all the way to the appartment and sat with us to give us all his recommendations around the city. What a gentleman. Overall, we had a blast and I highly recommend this appartment.

Wonderful place and owner; great base to explore Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place for many reasons. José Luís is a wonderful host. Warm, quickly responsive, informative. The apartment is a 30 minute walk from the castle, faster by public transportation. It is a 5-10 minute walk from the metro/subway which is right near TimeOut restaurant market, and just 3 minutes walk from a bus that goes into the town center or out to Belem and the many museums there. Also, apartment walking distance from great restaurants. Try Taberna Ideal for delicious meals. It is a four story walk up (that's five for Americans since we count the ground floor as floor 1 not 0). The place is very quiet, except for some night time noise from a restaurant below, but it quiets down at a reasonable hour. Very reliable wifi. Kitchen has good appliances and tools, few spices or supplies so bring your own. A market is within easy walking distance. Buy the Lisboa card at the airport. It provides free metro and bus rides and discounts to museums. Well worth it. Enjoy! We will happily return to this apartment again. It is a wonderful base and home from which to explore this great city.
