A Comfortable Stay

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is large and spacious as shown, with a nice view of the city lights at night. Our group of six was met at the apartment by Paulo's wife who let us in, exlained details, got us logged into the internet and even drove us to a grocery store and back since the close one was closed that day for some reason. What a gracious beginning which we really appreviated!

Being Americans, we were surprised there were no topsheets on the beds, that the comforter covers act as the top sheet. We think that is a European style. With only one couch in the living room, four of us would sit at the dining room table, and 2 on the couch. The kitchen was nice and big too, but the 2 cup coffeemaker was undersized for a group our size. Overall, it was a good location and a very good value. Thank you, Paulo!

A wonderful retreat in Porto

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights at Casa da Música in March 2016. Meeting up with Paulo and getting situated was easy and effortless. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, and quiet. It has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a balcony, a fully-functional kitchen, and large living room. The bed was comfortable and there were no problems with Wifi. From the balcony, you can see a good part of the city, as well as the Atlantic. The apartment is away from the hub of tourist activity, but the Metro is within walking distance and it is easy to find a taxi. Some of the major sites (like Casa da Música and the Contemporary Art Museum) are also within walking distance. The neighborhood has ample grocery stores, restaurants, and shops. We would definitely stay here again.

Big warm apartment

  • 5 of 5

We visited Portugal in late winter and it was was cold and wet most of the time.

So we appreciated this warm big apartment.

There is a very nice small grocery store on the ground floor of this building - not at all expensive compared to the big supermarket prices - and there's a really helpful kind young woman, who speaks excellent English, who was a great help to us.

Spacious apartment with energetic owner / manager

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in this large 9th floor apartment for three nights in early October. The description and photos of the facilities was accurate and complete. Paulo greeted us as scheduled and oriented us to every detail of the apartment as well as suggestions for seeing the city of Porto. Paulo was "full service" during our visit. My husband inadvertently left his CPAP machine in the taxi when we arrived. He didn't miss it until he was getting ready for bed at about 10 p.m. Since we don't travel with a cell phone, we decided to write Paulo an e-mail right away to see if he could help. We thought we'd hear from Paulo sometime the next day. But Paulo made several phone calls immediately and by midnight he was at the door with the recovered CPAP machine. We could hardly believe it! Thank you again, Paulo. You gave us such unexpected great service.

Paulo arranged for a taxi to pick us up on the morning of our departure -- once again going out of his way to make our visit a smooth and happy experience.

We recommend this apartment and hope you enjoy meeting Paulo as much as we did.

Very central, calm and safe

  • 5 of 5

We were staying both with a baby boy and with friends and really enjoyed it. The apartment is very central and calm. Three WCs, a shower and a bath tub is more than enough for the number of people staying there. Also the living room is very roomy. The description of the apartment is very precise and correct. The owner provided us with the info on the most important places to visit and also gave the answers to the questions we asked. He has also made a taxi reservation for us to get to the airport on our way back, and made some general safety suggestions for the city of Oporto.

I could think of nothing but one improvement which could be made - more than one apartment key could be useful. Normally my husband, son and I were leaving earlier than the others, who used to get up later, and then we all used to meet us somewhere in the city in the afternoon. We spent time together and in the evening sometimes we parted. Then the question with the key was crucial, as we had to be sure the one with the key gets to the apartment earlier than the others. This caused a little inconvenience, but did not disturb us much. It simply would be better to have another key, in my point of view.

Oh, and think of the frying pan. It is the overall problem of all the apartments to rent, not just of this one. You should better have one of your own with you (my personal tip), as they loose their covering very fast when not used properly (a moral hazard problem of the visitors).

To sum up: I would not hesitate to come back to Oporto and stay in the same apartment one day. A perfect place to stay for three couples or a family with friends, like us.
