Perfect Holiday Stay

  • 5 of 5

My teenage daughter and I had a great holiday in this wonderful apartment which was perfectly located in Alfama. The apartment is located within walking distance of many beautiful attractions, including Tram 28 which was a fun experience. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. It included all the necessary appliances. I actually realized that I had overpacked as I was able to easily launder my clothing throughout the week. Towels, bed linens and Wi-Fi were an extra bonus.

Carlos was an excellent host and was available to answer any questions I had. He went above and beyond my expectations with his customer service. I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family. I felt very safe in my location and while travelling throughout Alfama with my daughter. We experienced great restaurants that Carlos recommended, enjoyed our ride on Tram 28 and found the transit system very easy to use. We enjoyed celebrating Portugal's EUFA victories during our stay! Looking forward to returning to Portugal and would love to stay at Carlos' place again.

Excellent base to explore Lisbon and beyond

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in this compact but comfortable, very clean and well-equipped flat in Lisbon's hilly and picturesque old town. If you are wealthy enough, you could easily stay in a 5-star hotel in Lisbon - with an "international" feel and "international" food. However, you would miss so much of the better aspects of Portuguese life: the conviviality, the warmth, the lively chatter, and the fun. Rental of this excellent flat allows you to feel part of a tight-knit Lisbon community, if only for a short time. There is no other word to describe Carlos (the owner) other than exemplary.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Carlos' apt for ten days. It's a charming, quiet and well-equipped apt. We are a family-for-four and all of us love it, especially my daughter her alcova-room. The windows overlook the walking-street so the flat is brighting and quiet. The little bath have a nice shower. The apt is in the alfama quarter, in the upper city, so it's very easy to get around and see all of Lisboa. Carlos is very nice, understanding and quick-response before and during the stay. We'd like to come back and stay here in lisboa. I can definitely highly recommend this apt!

Experience the Heart of the City!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly the apartment you should stay in if you want to experience the heart of this magical city. Located in the Alfama area with everything close by; shopping, restaurants, bars, the tram, beautiful sight seeing, the river and so much more. The apartment is clean, well appointed and very quiet at night. Carlos is a wonderful host having picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at the bus station when we sadly left Portugal. He also gave great advice on what not to miss while in the city including advice and Sintra (a must see!)

I will recommend this place to anyone visiting Lisbon.

You will not be disappointed with this property - book it now!

Thank you Carlos and Margarida!

A truly wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Probably the best part of this apartment is the owner Carlos. He went above and beyond the responsibilities of a landlord--providing us with all sorts of information before we left, picking us up outside of town to guide us through the maze of Lisbon streets, helping us carry our luggage to and from the many flights of stairs of Alfama (part of its charm), and guiding us out of the city when we had to leave. Truly a godsend!

The apartment was perfect--in an old building, on a charming Alfama street, only one flight down from the old trams. The decor inside was new--mostly IKEA--which contrasted well with the old world outside as well as the inside . old window seats (from which you can look down on all your neighbors as everyone does in Alfama).

The apartment contained everything--computer, modern kitchen (microwave, dishwasher, clothes washer), as well as tons of information about Lisbon and the surrounding area. Carlos thought of everything...even DVDs in English for us to watch while drinking the bottle of Portuguese wine he provided.

We've stayed in many vacation rentals throughout the world but this was truly among the very best!

The apartment is located at less than 100 meters from Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia viewpoints, where you can enjoy a magnificent view over Alfama and the Tagus river. At a distance of 300 meters it is possible to visit the Castle of São Jorge or, on the opposite direction, the Fado Museum. With a 10 min walk it is possible to reach the Baixa, passing by the Lisbon Cathedral. Restaurants with live fado (dinner) abound, but if you prefer to cook, you can find everything you need in one of the numerous grocery stores in Alfama.
