The apartment has 4 bedrooms but the 3rd and 4th bedroom will only be open to guests if the group is more than 4 or 6 people respectively.
To avoid any misunderstanding, the bedrooms offer works like this:
1 to 4 guests = 2 bedrooms available
5 to 6 guests = 3 bedrooms available
7 to 8 guests = 4 bedrooms available
So, for example, if you are only 4 people but you want to use the 4 bedrooms, you will have to mention on your inquiry that you are 7 people because, only this way you will have access to the 4 bedrooms.
Nevertheless, all the other areas (Kitchen, 2 bathrooms and the large Living Room) will be available in any option, and the apartment will be (in all cases) only for you because I will not book bedrooms to more than one group of guests at the same time. You will be the only group of people staying in the apartment.

Hi Christina & John, we had a wonderful time in Porto und you made us happen the perfect start by informing us about practical things, must-seen-places and not-must-have-seen-places :). The apartment is really lovely and located in the heart of the city...and you can get everywhere by walking!! We woul like to come back here :)
Wow John & Christine - Christine & John . No matter how you turn it they are the best hosts of rentals we have had contact to so far.
Fair price , immediate response kind and precise .
Great location in the middle of the historic center of the beautiful city of Porto.
In the walking street, just across the house where Ernest Hemmingway lived for some time in the twenties,( now under renovation) I reach of all interesting locations within 1 km reach.
No charge for late arrival or a little delayed checkout and no extra fee for cleaning .
The building is beautiful and the apartment is a charm. A dream of a vacation rental.
And with the delicious odour from the cafe' just below where you can have waffles and coffee and ice ☕️
We had one of our best vacations in this fell good rental ⛪️
Best regards. Jie , Kurt , Thomas & Sofie
A casa é pequena e pouco pratica para um casal com duas crianças.
A casa tem pouca iluminação natural, julgo que está feita mais para o verão e não para quando os dias estão frios e nublados
A localização é boa, pois fica dentro do aldeamento que tem áreas verdes para as crianças brincarem e fica muito perto da praia.
Most beautiful appartment in Porto! In the middle of the town with everything you need. Cristina, you should mention that there is a hairdryer :-).
"Daumen hoch" für die hübsche Unterkunft im historischen Viertel von Porto. Die Wohnung bietet alles, was man für einen Kurzaufenthalt braucht. Sie liegt in einer Fußgängerzone, von der man alle Sehenswürdigkeiten zu Fuß erreichen kann. Ebenso findet man in unmittelbarer Nähe kleine Lokale und nette Läden. Der Gastgeber John hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen und mit Informationsmaterial über Restaurants, Sehenswürdigkeit....ausgestattet.
Sehr zu empfehlen!!!!
Wonderful stay in Porto in great location !
We arrived at midnight and our hosts were already expecting us. They were extremely friendly and gave us very valuable information on the city. We felt very welcome in the apartment which we had rented for 11 days. The two rooms are spacious. The hallway is big and contains closets for belongings. The kitchenette contained all kinds of equipment which we did not use. But we used the electric water heater to prepare our morning tea which we enjoyed on the small balcony in the morning sun.
The location is absolutely excellent, 10 minutes from the Douro Ribeira, 15 minutes to Bolaho market. Just a couple of houses up the road is a small bistro serving wonderful little dishes of organic food.
A great big thank you to John and Christina. We will definately visit Porto again and this apartment will be our preferance for accomodation!
Great appartment in a central location!
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.

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!
We spent three days with our baby a year and a half in this apartment.
We arrived about an hour and a half later than expected due to a flight delay and Cristina & John very kindly waited for us to give us the keys accompanied by a glass of port wine "thank you very much !!". They provided maps and a dossier with areas of interest (restaurants, wineries, supermarkets ...) and all this is appreciated when you arrive in a new city.
Very nice and clean apartment with everything you need, though perhaps a television to distract the small at times would have been nice.
Regarding location, just say it's excellent! (Close to everything) and only downside say that just below a bar / restaurant that puts music speaker on the street, which made our first night we could not sleep until 00:00 because of a tour group extremely elated, but our baby and found out !!!!. The other days the music was bearable.
Pasamos tres días con nuestro bebe de un año y medio en este apartamento.
Llegamos cerca de una hora y media más tarde de lo previsto por culpa de un retraso en el vuelo y Cristina & John nos esperaron muy amablemente para darnos las llaves acompañado de una copita de vino de oporto " muchas gracias!!". Nos facilitaron mapas y un dossier con zonas de interés ( restaurantes ,bodegas, supermercados...) y todo esto se agradece cuando llegas a una ciudad nueva.
El apartamento muy bonito y limpio con todo lo necesario, aunque quizás una televisión para distraer al pequeño en algunos momentos hubiera estado bien.
Respecto a la ubicación, sólo decir que es excelente! ( cerca de TODO) como única pega decir que justo debajo hay un bar/restaurante que pone música con altavoz en la calle, cosa que hizo que nuestra primera noche no pudiéramos conciliar el sueño hasta las 00:00 por culpa de un grupo de turistas extremadamente eufóricos, aunque nuestro bebé ni se enteró!!!!. El resto de días la música era soportable.
