Staying at the apartment of Cristina and John was great. Both are wonderful hosts. Cristina and John made us feel very welcome and given us a lot of information about Porto. The apartment was spotlessly clean and decorated with lots of charm. The historic ambience was maintained by a gentle stylish renovation. In the apartment nothing was missing and the views of the cathedral from the balcony was awesome. The apartment is very quiet and is located in the pedestrian zone. Everything is very good erreichbat on foot. We thank our hosts Cristina and John very much for everything. We are happy to return to this place wunscherschönen.

Der Aufenthalt im Apartement von Cristina und John war grossartig. Die beiden sind wunderbare Gastgeber. Cristina und John haben uns herzlich willkommen geheissen und uns viele Informationen über Porto mitgegeben. Die Wohnung war blitzsauber und mit viel Charme eingerichtet. Das historische Ambiente wurde durch eine sanfte stilvolle Renovation beibehalten. In der Wohnung fehlte es an nichts und die Aussicht auf die Kathedrale vom Balkon aus war einmalig. Die Wohnung ist sehr ruhig gelegen und befindet sich in der Fussgängerzone. Alles ist sehr gut zu Fuss erreichbat. Wir danken unseren Gastgebern Cristina und John ganz herzlich für alles. Wir kehren gerne an diesen wunscherschönen Ort zurück.

Super location. Don't understand how our booking went wrong - we were looking forward to the romantic flat with love seats... The equipment in the flat we were in was very basic, and the lighting poor - expecially in the kitchen area. (It is a great flat to be enjoyed in g o o d , sunny weather!)

Cristina & John are very nice and helpful people, giving lots of information at arrival. House in the middle of Porto old town (pedestrian zone), many nice shops, bars and restaurants in the neighborhood, very close to the river and many sightseeing spots. Don't bring a car, parking is difficult. Flat very clean and decent, well-equipped. Only one negative point: the ventilation of the downstairs restaurant is somewhat annoying, since it's close to the windows and runs half of the night.
Anyway: Thanks for the nice stay, we enjoyed Porto very much!
I have stayed in several rented flats through Wimdu and other similar sites in several different countries and this was my best experience so far. Christina and João were welcoming, professional, and comprehensive. I had immediate responses to text messages upon arrival to Porto to provide accurate descriptions for arrival to the flat and they were there to greet me at the time they said they would be. Amazingly, these details which might appear simple to fulfil, are often forgotten about or messed up entirely by hosts. Before leaving us, Christina and João made sure we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. This included a comprehensive list of printed recommendations of bars, restaurants, activities and suggestions for our stay.
The flat itself was beautiful. A modern conversion in an old building which the photos don't really do justice. There is a big entrance space that leads to a large bedroom (very comfortable queen sized bed), a perfectly proportioned bathroom (great shower and bathtub, bidet), and a kitchen/living room. The bedroom and the kitchen/living room had floor to ceiling windows that looked out on the old buildings at the edge of the old district of Porto and let in beautiful natural light in the morning. The location of the flat was perfect, with everything in walking distance.
I would not hesitate to stay here again. 10/10.
We very much enjoyed our stay. Nice welcome, clean and nice apartment in a charming street and central location in the center!
We hebben erg genoten van ons verblijf. Prettig ontvangst, schoon en leuk appartement in een sfeervol straatje en centrale lokatie in het centrum!
Great apartment, very sweet and romantic. Best location! and above all quiet. The apartment is equipped with everything you need. Cristina and her husband are very kind !!
We will in turn that's for sure!
Tolle Wohnung, sehr süß und romantisch. Beste Lage! und vorallem ruhig. Die Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet was man so braucht. Cristina und ihr Mann sind sehr liebenswürdig!!
Wir kommen wieder- das ist schon mal sicher!
We can definitely recommend this apartment.
The location is great (many attractions are within walking distance).
We were warmly welcomed and provided with valuable tips.
wir können diese Wohnung definitiv empfehlen.
Die Lage ist super (viele Sehenswürdigkeiten können zu Fuß erreicht werden).
Wir wurden herzlich empfangen und mit wertvollen Tipps versorgt.
Wonderful hosts, both Cristina et her husband John. The directions to get to the apartment could not have been more accurate. Then during our 1st meeting they gave us very useful information on restaurants (which we visited and which were excellent). They also told us about a Fado dinner night, but when there was no Fado that night they looked for another place. We called immediately and booked the last table. It was fabulous! Many many thanks!
We stayed in Porto for a week and we really felt at home in this appartment. The kitchen was well equipped with all the tools you might need to cook a meal or make an espresso or tea. Christina and her family gave us a warm welcome, some advice about where to go and contacts to go surfing.
Even though during the day there was roadwork in front of the house, it did not bother us, since the appartement was located on the other side of the building. (Besides, the work seemed to progress quickly.) Instead we enjoyed waking up to the sounds of seagulls and church bells.
From the appartement you can easily walk the whole old town or simply use the close by public transportation to reach more dinstant locations. We strongly recommend trying it out for yourselves and have a great time experiencing Porto!
Warm, quite charming hosts. Home conveniently located close to attractions. The entire apartment was adequate. We went at a time when the temperature was very hot, which is somewhat impede our comfort. Endoit recommended. Sorry for the fans of TV or radio ...
Accueil chaleureux, hôtes tout a fait charmants. Logis bien situé à proximité des sites à visiter. L'appartement tout a fait convenable. Nous sommes allés à un moment où la température était très chaude, ce qui a nuit quelque peu à notre confort. Endoit recommandable. Désolé pour les amateurs de TV ou de radio...
