“Such a warm welcome”
Reviewed May 15, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

What a lovely apartment, and a great location. It is on the bus route for one of the sightseeing bustrips - the drivers are not supposed to stop at the nearby bus stop, but they always stopped for us on request. This was important to us as we were traveling with my mother (in her 80s), who would have found the hills of Porto challenging. The best thing about the apartment is Pedro - what a lovely helpful person. He went out of his way to advise and inform us, and it really helped that he was able to pick us up from the airport and take us to our our car hire company at the end of our stay. Porto is a very beautiful city but with Pedro's enthusiasm and knowledge you enjoy it even more. Highly recommended.

“Amazing Apartment”

This apartment is beautiful with an exceptional location. The owner is very kind and helpful. Pedro spent time sharing all of his recommendations for staying in Porto with us upon arriving. This really added to our trip as his suggestions for restaurants, etc. were authentic to the area. The views from this apartment are exceptional and the port houses in walking distance. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone planning a trip to Porto!

“Good little apartment with great view and amazing host”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We would highly recommend this as an ideal place to base yourself when visiting Porto. Pedro the host was extremely helpful and provided us with great insight into the city. Great little cafe a few steps above us for morning coffees and croissants a bonus.

“Wonderful host, great apartment with breathtaking views!”

We stayed three nights at Pedro'a apartment. The apartment is in Nova de Gaie, which is a very convenient location to explore Porto. Porto is a magical city and the views from Pedro's place, simply make the memories more lingering! The apartment is up (or down) three flights of stairs.The apartment is actually below street level and the stairs are easy. Pedro is a most gracious and welcoming host. He answered all my queries before we got there. When we got there, he was there to receive us and also helped with our luggage. The apartment is a lovely two bedroom one with a large-sized bath (with bathtub). It was very comfortable and convenient for us (a family of four). Pedro provided us with all maps and helpful bits of information needed to explore the city and the region. The views of the river and the city in the evening, when the lights come up, are something that we will never forget. There is free parking available close to the apartment, which was very convenient. One has the option to take breakfast at the Miraporto cafe, which is located on top of the building; but we didn't opt for it. All in all, a great place to stay that is highly recommended.

“Amazing stay and absolutely amazing host!”

We are seasoned travellers and in all of our travels we have never had a host like Pedro! As part of his service, he met us at the airport and also saw us off as we left after our 5 day stay. He provided us with tourist information and we also used his services to go on a guided tour of the Douro Valley. He is knowlegeable, friendly and helpful - in short an incredible host who obviously enjoys sharing his love for the Douro region .

The apartment is well located, comfortable and has an absolutely amazing view across the river. There are steps to get to the apartment and no elevator which may be an issue for some travelers. A bonus however is a coffee house also with a view situated above the apartment - this was quite convenient.
Overall, if you stay here you will not regret it!

Owner Pedro collected us from airport and was very helpfull telling us about Porto. Great views overlooking Ribera district which is only a short walk away over the river. This side of the river has the views and close to all sights. Porto is full of hills so bring your walking shoes but there is a bus stop across the road from the apartments which brings you in to the centre of Porto. Make sure you walk over the railway bridge over the river as it has great views. Apartment is clean and a good size so good for friends or a family.

We were very happy with this vacation rental! Pedro, the host and landlord was extremely helpful and very welcoming. The pick up from the train station was a nice perk! The view in this apartment was amazing. I'm glad we stayed in Gaia instead of Porto, because you can see all of Porto out the window! It's quieter as well, but you can be right in the middle in the action in only a few minutes walk. Very clean and convenient, nice kitchen with utensils. Only a few minutes walk to the Metro, grocery store and main street. We really felt like we were staying in a local neighborhood vs a hotel which was great. Would come back here again if I'm visiting Porto!
