“Great apartment, owner, and location!”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

My wife and I and two other couples shared this great Vila Nova de Gaia apartment for five fun days just across the Rio Douro River from Porto. Everything was as advertised. The apartment is well appointed and maintained. The beds were very comfortable for all. The living room is cozy but all 6 of us enjoyed gathering there. The kitchen is cozy, too, but quite functional. And the location is just terrific! We all agreed we were much better just off just across the bridge from central Porto than had we been staying in Porto proper.
The apartment is literally a 10 minute walk from the center of Porto. The Metro stop is a block away. There aren’t a lot of restaurants on the Gaia side except at the river by the Port Caves, maybe a 15 minute downhill walk away where there are several. There is a well stocked market at the bottom of street hidden away next to the corner cafe: their take-out roast chicken was some of the best chicken any of us had ever eaten!
And Pedro, the owner, is very gracious, helpful, and responsive. He gave us an in-depth orientation to the apartment, adjacent neighborhood, and Porto which was very helpful. His thoughtful touches are everywhere in the apartment. When we had a minor problem with one of the toilets, he repaired it within a couple of hours while we were out. Pedro is just terrific.
Would I recommend this apartment? Absolutely!

“Beautiful, well equipped apartment with a great location!”

The apartment was easy to get to and Pedro was already there to meet us. He took the time to show us around the apartment and sat down and showed us where we were on the map and made suggestions for restaurants. I think the best thing about this apartment besides the space was the proximity to the old town centre. Just a five minute stunning walk over the bridge and you are there. To go further afield there is a Metro Station at the end of the road. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Porto made even better by our accommodation! Thanks Pedro!

My Mum, Dad, Sister, Brother-in-law, Husband and I spent 10 wonderful days in Porto. The apartment was well situated in the town making it easy to get round and see everything. Our host was very helpful and very accommodating telling us about places to visit, eat and drink. The fact that there are 3 bathrooms in the apartment is a great bonus and there was always plenty of hot water. The kitchen is well equipped and the apartment was clean and in good repair. A very enjoyable time was had by everyone. We would certainly stay again. Thanks!

“Great place to stay!”

Very nice apartment and very nicely decorated. The three bedrooms were more than enough space for our family of four. Apartment is actually located on the south side of the main downtown area of Porto, Vila Nova de Gaia neighborhood, but still within walking distance to the old town. The apartment is very clean and we loved staying there. I recommend this place with no hesitation.
