Beautiful property in the 'best' location.

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described on HomeAway, it was a pleasure to stay there. The views from both balconies were exceptional, you just had to keep looking at them. Stepping out of the front door puts you straight onto the square & 2 minutes walk away is the river, bars & restaurants to the left & right.

Porto is a great place, you can walk to most places, although the main town is all uphill from the property, still its downhill coming home. The river boat trips are a 4 minute walk away, the electric tram almost outside. You can walk over the bridge to the 'Port Wine' area, or catch a river taxi if you want.

Our week at the property went by too quickly.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for three nights after our river cruise. Location is great but in a quiet area at night. Very clean and looks exactly as pictured.

The mattress in master bedroom was softer than I like because it conforms to your body the way a foam mattress does. However,The view from it is spectacular. Loved the views from all levels at night because the city is lit up. There are shutters in both bedrooms to keep the room dark for sleeping.

Although there is an elevator for this fifth floor apartment, there are some stairs to access the elevator. However, help Was offered to carry our luggage up to the elevator.

Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Location and Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was lovely. Both bedrooms and the living room had spectacular views which were the jewels of this apartment. It looks exactly like the website pix. We loved our stay here.

It had a clean, modern rehabed interior of the whole building. Very well done and very nice materials were used.

Communication was easy. We were met at the apartment and shown around. It was extremely clean, very modern and spacious size.

This could be a luxury rental w a few minor upgrades and additional amenities. The downstairs bedroom had an extremely hard uncomfortable mattress. Upstairs was a lovely mattress. The sofa in the living room needs replacing. We had the basics upon arrival. Plenty of tp & paper towels. To put it over the top, a bottle of local wine, water, and a little bit of starter groceries would be perfect.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat. This was the place to stay!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for three days in May 2018 (2 couples from Canada). It has a wonderful layout for two couples as you have separate areas on two floors with full private washrooms. The views from the master suite are spectacular. The double bed in the second bedroom is very firm but that worked for us. The upstairs master bedroom is two twins together to form a king size. It was very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. We basically used it for breakfast prior to heading out for sightseeing. The owner Marc was very accommodating and always prompt when contacted for information. The area is a wonderful location, convenient to public transportation. We did not have a car in Porto and managed well. There is parking close by if required. . If stairs are a problem for you then this might not be suitable. It is on the 5th floor and there is an elevator lift but to get to it you still must use some stairs. We would definitely stay at this property again!!
