Interaction with Guests
We're of the neighborhood, local people. We are always available.
Susana is dedicated to guests the whole time.
We like to be with the guests in the evening with a cool drink, to share a bit of our country and get a bit of the country of origin of each guest.
This neighborhood beyond its charm has a very special thing - its authenticity. It's a neighborhood full of life with people who inhabit it and we have everything from the simplest to the fanciest. In a word - unique
We are in the city center. There is metro, bus and mythical electric 28 is in a few steps away.
The downtown is within walking distance.
I do not want to impose rules for your vacation stay, but still would like to make some notes.
The apartment is in a residential area and we have an excellent relationship with our neighbors, and so we would like to continue.
Please respect the neighbors.
Please don't smoke.
Is always nice to find the apartment estimated.
In addition, the only rule I really want to impose is that you please have fun and enjoy our beautiful city. Spend a memorable vacation.
This is my greatest desire.
Thanks a lot
Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis par Susana et son mari qui sont vraiment charmants. Le quartier de l'Alfama est super, nous avons eu l'impression de faire une immersion dans la vie lisboète. La chambre est magnifique, spacieuse avec un grand lit confortable et une pièce annexe avec dressing et salle de bain de la même taille que la chambre. Nous avons adoré !
Seul petit bémol, les enfants des voisins du dessus qui sont un peu bruyants, mais cela n'a en rien perturbé notre séjour.
Merci Anna et Joao pour votre gentillesse. Si nous revenons à Lisbonne, ce sera chez vous.
afgelopen week waren wij voor onze huwelijksreis naar lissabon en hebben het appartement van susana gehuurd het was een fijn en confortabel appartement midden in het oude gedeelte van lissabon in de sfeervolle straatjes van alfama ! we werden zeer gastvrij ontvangen op de dag van aankomst en gelijk kregen we een aantal goede tips over de stad ! het appartement zelf was goed een keurig verzorgde kamer met een goed bed een heerlijk grote douche elke morgen rond de klok van 9 uur werd er een ontbijt bezorgd met de nodige beleg en een stuk fruit heerlijk! het enige minpuntje aan het appartement is dat het vrij gehorig is en je in de morgen nogal eens last van de bovenburen kunt hebben met hun stampvoeten dit was echter niet elke dag dus zou ook toeval geweest kunnen zijn! al met al hebben wij een heerlijke week gehad en zouden we iedereen het appartement aanraden!
Logement très bien situé. Quartier très animé et approximité de tout. Susana se rend disponible et à l'écoute de nos besoins. A noté que les enfants des voisins du dessus sont très bruyants, réveil matinal. Séjour très agréable.
Susana was an amazing host. She was incredibly friendly and helpful. She spent a considerable time advising us on places to eat and visit. She provided some unexpected extras such as a bag with bread and fillings and a coffee machine with pods. The apartment was beautiful, clean and perfectly located in the centre of Alfama. We were extremely happy and recommend her highly.
Wir waren für insgesamt drei Nächte zu Gast bei Susana! Wir wurden aufs herzlichste empfangen (auch wenn der Empfang am Auto stattfand da wir die Wohnung nicht auf Anhieb finden konnten). Die Wohnung ist toll! Sauber, zentral und Susana hat uns tipps für unseren Aufenthalt gegeben.
Wir würden definitiv wiederkommen!

About the Host, Susana
We are a portuguese couple that at the beginning of our married life we have been fortunate to find a house in the center of Lisbon in a neighborhood that we only known the name - Alfama. We were welcomed with open arms by people who do not know us, but they treated us like family. The demonstrations of friendship and good neighborliness were daily ... were undoubtedly one of the best years of our lives. But the family was growing and the house no longer met the conditions for a biger family. We can't give away the house ... it's really special. Then came the idea, why do not provide this experience to others?
The reason why the house is called 'Cats House' is because when we lived there, we had five cats and lovingly to our neighbors and friends called it the House of Cats, and found it good to leave it with that name to remember the happy times live in Alfama and of course in memory of ours cats.
And the will to receive grew even more with this experience, and came "The Window of the World," and other people's homes and friends from a friends who give us their homes to receive the same love and care we receive in our house ... and thus also come to be our as well ...to receive with the same desire and taste as I have received in the Cats House I hope you like and welcome.
I sincerely hope to those who choose to come to stay in Alfama, which are as happy as we were ...
Susana and João
