“Truly the best view!”
Reviewed November 17, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The apartment was amazing, clean and in a wonderful location. Beds were comfortable and the apartment had lots of things we needed. Convenient to bus/trains and douro river. Miguel was a great host and we cannot wait to go back!

“Exceptional, truly exceptional”
Reviewed August 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My wife and I stayed here with friends for 3 nights in August and I can honestly say it exceeded all our expectations.
Right form the booking, Miguel was excellent which set the tone for our stay. His response to our inquiry was quick and friendly he included accurate directions with the booking. He was there as promised to greet us at the apartment. What a guy he is too, really friendly and clearly passionate about Porto and music !
The apartment itself has superb views of the river, the town of Porto and the iconic bridge. Don't bother bringing toiletries, there are enough to last a lifetime, teas also. The kitchen is great for breakfast or cooking a meal if you so wished. The bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. The apartment also has the biggest bed settee that we had ever seen, we christened it the BFG after the giant, it's that big.
Even though the cable car runs right overhead, you don't hear it at all, and you always know where you are staying.
You are on a hill, mind you where isn't in Porto ? You will be climbing up to the apartment or down from it. My top tip is that you can use the car park lift which is half way down as a shortcut to remove the worst of the climb.
We all loved Porto and will definitely stay here when we return, if we can get in that is.

“I decided here!! Coz,view !!!!!”
Reviewed June 22, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I was my guess very lucky.

So check...BINGO!!!
Straight away send to booking message.
Miguel is very friendly & very funny.
Also,apartment was so organized. Easy to stay & enjoy.
This time was by myself. My wife was working so I went to Portugal by myself.
But,he has 2 apartments..1 for 6 persons ,1 for 8 persons apartments.
Guess what???

“WOW what a view”

Spent a lot of time looking for an apartment in Ribeira for our stay when I came across Miguel's apartment and thought it's better to be looking at Ribeira than from it, what a view. The apartment is spacious for four adults and well equipped even down to the umbrellas. We had four night break and loved every moment. Porto has a really good feel about the city, plenty of places to visit and excellent restaurants, quality and price for food and drinks.

“wonderful”
Reviewed August 25, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

we wanted to try something else than staying in a hotel,to have more than a room especially with our daughter.
The flat was great,high on the hill with beautiful views of Porto and the River.
Miguel was there on our arrival and very welcoming.
everything in the appartment was great ,the kitchen was well equiped,the bedrooms had good beds,bathroom a bit small but had a very good shower.
only negative would be the sofa in the living room which was the most uncomfortable sofa I have ever sat on and the TV which had satellite but most channels were in arabics and no kids channels

“Lived up to all our expectations”
Reviewed August 5, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed here with our teenage son for a week and had a wonderful time. Miguel was very helpful and friendly and met us on arrival. The apartment was easy to find with stunning views of Porto. The bread rolls, small bottle of beer, wine, apples and small samples of port were much appreciated. We enjoyed the use of the Nespresso machine and the wi-fi. There are lots of lovely places to eat within a short walk and the apartment is well placed for use of transport. We will definitely hope to return in the future.
