“Smart quiet apartment in central location with view of river”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The owner's description of this apartment in no way exaggerated its qualities.

Although it is in an old building the accommodation has been tastefully refurbished into a bright smart apartment with views of the quay and across the river. There are some small shops outside in the Rua Candidos dos Reis side street selling bread and groceries with lots of cafes and bars on the nearby waterfront. This area is busy in the evening but the apartment in the side street is well above street level and so is quiet and relaxing.

We arrived by car and were very grateful to be able to use the secure off road parking which was provided for free by the owner. Sonia who looks after the property was always available and ready to assist when we needed help for example with calling taxis and dealing with luggage difficulties.

Overall this was excellent accommodation for two couples sharing a kitchen but otherwise having separate bathrooms/bedrooms. However be prepared to climb three flights of stairs!

“Welcomed like a family member.”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We were very well received by Sonia and her mother, even though we were a few hours early.The apartment was immaculate, a nice gift of Port awaited us and a little supply of things in the fridge to start us off. Sonia is very helpful and a good source of information for local events or places to go. Her mother even brought us some homemade Cod cakes, which were delicious. As in other reviews the stairs can be very tricky if you have problems navigating steep stairs. The second bedroom is separate from the actual apartment which was convenient as we were two couples travelling together.

“Wonderful apartment close to attractions”
Reviewed October 17, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

After finding our way to the apartment through heaps of one way streets, instructions from members of the public and the address given to us we were thrilled with the accommodation which greeted us. The GPS didn't recognize the address which Sonia had sent to us so we had a bit of a trial getting there but was all worth it.
Sonia welcomed us with a warm smile and friendly greeting..plus a bottle of port! She proudly showed us around the two story apartment which was immaculate, well appointed with all that you need. The appliances, kitchen and bathrooms were new, clean with quality fittings. She included a starter pack with fruit, milk, juice etc which we were grateful for. We all loved the apartment, even our teenagers who thought it was unique and loved the configuration of the apartment.
The only negative thing is the stairs. It is not suitable for the elderly or people who find narrow stairs a challenge. We were fine but moving luggage etc took a little effort and skill.
The view from the windows was fabulous, made you feel part of the river and eating action down on the waterfront. The chairlift going overhead is very unusual..
We loved our stay, were sad to leave and loved the hospitality shown to us by Sonia. Would highly recommend this property.
