Casa da Avenida is a wonderful 4 bedroom, 1 1/2 bathroom apartment in Lisbon. This apartment was incredibly large and spacious with 1950's era character - it included a full dining room with French doors and vintage touches of old doorknobs and hardwood flooring. It did, however, strike the right balance of modern fixtures in the bathrooms and kitchen and the beds were very comfortable. Margarida is a very gracious and accommodating host who meets you upon arrival and orients you to the neighborhood and attractions of the city. Parking is not available with the property, but there is parking half a block away with a reasonable daily rate. There are multiple grocery store options nearby. We enjoyed our stay immensely and wished it could have been longer - 5 stars!!!. Note: the apartment is on the 4th floor with only stairs ... but Lisbon overall is a bootcamp of steep hills if you're exploring it on foot - great city to visit.
The apartment is only about 3 minutes walk from Alameda station, which is a very convenient station with 2 connecting subway lines. There are 3 supermarkets nearby the hotel within 5 minutes walk. This apartment does not have elevator but the owner makes up with an apartment full of amenities and space. This is the most attentive owner I have even seen. We will definitely come back again when we visit Lisbon!
For our first visit to this beautiful city, it was an absolutely perfect stay with everything we needed: close to public transport, restaurants, supermarket. The welcome was warm (complete with a bottle of wine) and on time and moving in was a breeze. Two days were FAR too short! You've created a gem, Margarida, well done!
