“Totally recommended!”
Reviewed January 23, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Teresa & Miguel are great people. From the moment we enter the house until we leave Porto we felt so much welcomed by them. The place is really beautiful, comfortable, and well-equipped. You can find everything you want, even spoons and dishes for your baby. It's located in the center of old well-known unesco area near sao bento station so you can easily walk to famous tourist spots, also to the river. And Teresa and Miguel had their own restaurant guide booklet and their choice of restaurants were wonderful. Thank you, Teresa and Miguel, for all your kindness. We really had a great time. Send my best wishes to you. 테레사아줌마랑 미구엘아저씨가 운영하는 곳인데 정말 예쁘고 깔끔하고 진짜 집처럼 세심하게필요한것들을 잘 갖추고 있어요 두 분도 정말 친절하게 잘 챙겨주시고 웰컴 케이크와 포트와인에 물 쥬스 우유 등도 미리 준비해주셔서 편하고 환영받는 느낌이었어요 위치도 상벤투역 도루강 둘 다 가까워서 다니기 좋았어요 주변 맛집도 많이 알려주셔요 강추합니다 :)

“Perfect stay with perfect hosts”
Reviewed January 4, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Teresa and Miguel are ideal hosts! Communication was perfect from the start. Arriving in Porto rather late, they offered to book a restaurant for us, giving us a choice of places which they had personally tried out. Even though it seemed to be a busy time of the year in the city, they did find us a place in a splendid restaurant with local specialities. They booked a taxi to pick us up on arrival at the airport and we were at the apartment in no time. Finally meeting them in person, they showed us around the apartment complete with a generous decanter of port wine and a fabulous cake rich with orange flavours made by Teresa herself. Perfection. Teresa and Miguel sat down with us showing us the main sites on a map, gave us bus info and generally answered all our questions like only local hosts who have lived a lifetime in the city can. The apartment is compact, well furnished and comfortable for families. The coffee machine was a big plus for us and our hosts did not skimp on the Nespresso capsules. They also left milk, water, soft drinks and a couple of beer bottles (which we left untouched in favour of the splendid Port). All throughout, we couldn't but feel a sense of appreciation for our hosts' commitment. We host guests in our apartment too and we feel that the job of a host is to add value to a trip which is otherwise not easy to find. We esteem their work and investment and are pleased to have contributed to Teresa's full time pursuit in the interest of her young family. Jean-Pierre and Josanne.

“Amazing modern apartment in central Porto”
Reviewed January 3, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Teresa and Miguel are the best hosts! We were welcomed into their apartment with a bottle of champagne and homemade cake. The apartment is very central and walkable to the main tourist sights and great restaurants. It is in perfect condition (looks just like the pictures) with new furnishings and modern decor. Teresa and Miguel were very charming and super helpful with suggestions and even helped us book dinner on New Years Eve. We only stayed for one night but wish we could have stayed longer! Would highly recommend this apartment.

“a home and perfect hosts in the heart of Oporto”
Reviewed December 19, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Teresa and Miguel are amazing. We stayed at Janika's place for a weekend and all I can say is that the apartment is wonderful and the location is the best you can expect, right in the centre of the old town. Teresa baked a delicious cake for us, and they made us feel at home all the time. Their tips about restaurants were great. On top of this, the quiet street, quality of matress, pillows, cleaningness, general comfort... a real home!

“Perfect”
Reviewed December 7, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Our staying was amazing! Teresa and Miguel were perfect host! Their apartment so fantastic, beautiful,very clean, very well equipped and so so smart. Exactly everything looks like the picture. We really enjoy our staying. Teresa and Miguel so so helpful, we can count on them everything. Their apartment is in the best place in Porto. On walk we can reach every points of interest, and naturally the beautiful river….Douro :) They help us to discover many fantastic restaurants and bars. We decided to return in next spring and we will choose them again. If you want to feel like at home than choose them :) Zsolti and Zsuzsi

“Lovely home in the heart of Porto”
Reviewed December 6, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Janika's apartment is lovely, confortable and has everything you could ever need, it is also perfectly clean and well located right in the very center of Porto. Teresa and Miguel are amazing hosts, when we first came she received us with a smile and she spent her time on sitting with us and explain what to do in Porto. She gave us lots of tips and useful recommendations to enjoy the city those days. They have been available for anything we needed during our stay. We personally think that finding hospitable people that also are in love of their city is very difficult and it is definitely what makes the difference between a simple trip and a wonderful experience. That is something we really appreciate.
