“A slice of heaven on the Douro River”
Reviewed June 5, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

What a beautiful apartment to let in Porto for a few days! This was our first visit to this lovely city, and her apartment made for the perfect accommodations.

I cannot compliment the owner, Cristina, enough for making our trip just right. She has impeccable taste. The apartment is very elegant and comfortably furnished.

The central location is ideal to visit pretty much everything that the city has to offer. Cristina provides you with several useful suggestions for places to go, shop, and eat.

Don't forget to try the cozy restaurant next door - delicious sardines and friendly staff.

My wife and I asked if we could move in! We definitely want to return to Porto, and when we do we will book again with Cristina.

“Spacious apartment with a very warm welcome by Cristina”
Reviewed May 15, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

As we were disembarking from our Douro river cruise early in the morning, Cristina very kindly agreed to allow us a mid morning check in which was great. She met us there and gave a great overview of Porto and where to see, go to eat etc. The place is right on the river bank and a very few mins walk to a fairly large supermarket - the Continente. It’s about 15 min stroll into town or there are teams and a bus outside. The apartment occupies 2 entire floors and has a really great designer fully equipped kitchen. There’s plenty of crockery, cutlery and utensils. We were only 2 people so although the very modern dining table was relatively small we were able to manage though climbing onto the bar stools was a bit challenging for my short friend! Not sure how well 4 adults would manage with limited table surfaces for drinks, nibbles etc, The helipad is virtually opposite and did present noise especially on the sunny days along with church bells and traffic. However, it was quiet overnight so our sleep wasn’t disturbed. There’s an ensuite double bedroom on each floor - with the top floor bed being futon design so just a few inches from the floor. That with the 3 flights of stairs would not suit anyone elderly or disabled. We’re in our late 60s and just coped!

“Great Location; Great Apartment”
Reviewed November 27, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

We stayed in this apartment for a few days during our trip to Porto. It was a great location, with a fantastic view of the Douro River. The accommodations were very comfortable, and the location was easy walking distance to everything. The 500 bus stops just outside the apartment about a block away, so getting to / from the beach was easy. The supermarket was just a few blocks away, and that was also convenient for shopping. Finally, we had a great view of the port caves. Awesome way to spend the day!!!!! We visited three of them!.
Christina was a great hostess, and saw to all our needs. This is an excellent place to stay!

“Lovely river-view apartment in Porto”
Reviewed October 6, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The location is perfect for easy access to Ribeira district and only a 15min walk to historic centre. Located right by the river Douro, so flat walking along riverbank with georgeous views right on your doorstep. The apartment is exactly as described online.

Local restaurants, public transport and grocery store all within 100m.
Cristina, the owner, was fantastic - so helpful and thoughtful.
We loved Porto and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

“Great apartment, great location, great host”
Reviewed August 24, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Thanks to Cristina and her lovely apartment we were able to get the most out of a short stay in Porto. The location is ideal, with great views but also easy access to all the best things to do in the city. The apartment itself is bright, clean, stylish and lavishly equipped. The upstairs bedroom suite has a luxurious, indulgent feel to it.
The restaurant beneath the apartment was fine and others a short walk away were too.
Cristina gave us fantastic advice on things to do, places to visit, where to eat, how to get around and so on - she could not have been more helpful.
We had a fabulous weekend to round off our holiday in northern Portugal.

“Porto”
Reviewed May 14, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We had unfortunate misunderstanding re: room rate. Cristina asked for more $$ in cash. We spent too much time waiting for buses. We liked Porto

Nancy, you made a reservation for two people and you were four guests. This extra fee is mentioned on the site and was reinforced in advance in sms messages weeks before your arrival in order avoid misunderstandings. Thank you all the same for your visit i enjoyed meeting you all. Regards Cristina

person found this review helpful

A stunning apartment right by the druoro river. The apartment is about 20 mins walk from city centre, and there are plenty of buses and frames into the city also from right outside.

There is a supermarket and a couple of really nice restaurants near the apartment.

Only negative was our room was not ready till about 6pm, however I would still fully recommend this place.
