Simple Dream Houses keeps the path of restoring spaces in the most simple and confortable way that once were daily family life places and are now turned into very simple environments. Always in mind the mission of intensive local know how and the most transparent, convenient and best price-quality relation with our beloved guests.
Simple City Dream Houses has a fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms: one with a twin mattress and one with 2 single beds. (there is possibility of adding an extra mattress in the living room if needed). The apartment is located in a very safe and residencial area of Lisbon. All the amenities, towels and everything you need for your best confort will be waiting for you. Including an amazing river view from the confort of our living room.
Ideally for short stays, very early next day flights, for events, fairs, concerts, conferences.
For longer stays (one week or more) and plans to travel around the great area of Lisbon, with a car rental, is also a very convenient place giving the strategic location in terms of road accesses (Ponte Vasco da Gama, and all the main highways).
OLIVAIS metro station - Very conveniently located 5 subway stations and 5 minutes by taxi/car from the Lisbon International Airport. Plenty car parking spaces at the building entrance.
2 subway stations from the most modern and the new touristic area of the former EXPO 98 - Parque das Nações, where you'll find one of the best Oceanariums in the world, big shopping malls, Fair venues, great restaurants and a beautiful walk by the river Tagus.
And 15 minutes by metro from the very city center - BAIXA CHIADO.
Less than 5 minutes walking there are restaurants, pharmacy, ATM, coffees, kiosks, grocery shops and chains, small shopping mall open from 10am to 11pm, and lots of public parks.
Simple Dream Houses is unique because we believe that "in the simplicity lives the dream". We make the most to make it simple from the booking moment, to your arrival, your stay and the dreams you take home with you from your experience with us.
ATT: If you want the place for only one/two days an extra charge for more than 2 ppl is applied. Looking forward for your best comprehension - this is duo to the given cleaning and all the requirements needed for your best confort. This proceeder only applies for one/two nights stay, meaning that if you're staying more than two nights and are 4 ppl there is NO change in the value presented (something that airbnb system doesn't allow us to do automatically).
First we had little communication Problems, cause Joao and his uncle are administrating everything and they didn't communicate under each other. But when we have met his uncle Pedro everything was okay again. He is a very friendly guy. Introduced us to the flat. It was perfect for us. Big. Clean and in the near of the metrostation (Olivais). There is also a big market with restaurants and some other shops just about 5 minutes walking away. Pedro also gave us some tips where we could go in Lisboa. We had a nice uncomplicated stay.
We didn't use the kitchen. But it should be everything okay there ;).
This apartment ended up working out fine for us, but I would say...it's not as advertised. I've stayed in a dozen or so airbnbs and I would say the photos and description on this apartment were misleading. The neighborhood it's in js actually fine, but the immediate apartment complex is really strange and confusing. There's really nothing "simple, modern" about the apartment, it's just the hosts grandmothers apartment with some Ikea linens in the bedrooms. The metro is nearby at least!
I didnt like at all the location of the house! Also the neighbourhood was not good! By watching the pics u think it is going to be a modern flat but it is not! The worst thing is how to fit 5 people with three beds!!! This is the first I give a bad evaluation! I wouldnt include this appartment in Aurbnb! Totally dissapointed!
Victoria is not being faire with this review. She was a bad guest from the beginning.
First she starts her approach by claiming that airbnb is not a safe system.
Second and after making the reservation she bombards me with messages about the location of the house (that is very clearly described and honestly stated at the description) plus you can use the airbnb location feature to see it for yourself, anyhow I respectfully re-clarified and gave more options so that she will find the flat. Even more gave her the option of changing/cancelling the reservation in case she would not find it fitted to her needs.
On the top of it, her reservation was made for 3 people, situation that (according to her review to fit 5 people!) she was not honest about. Always in this kind of situations, where the guests are more than 3, we always ask the guests, before they make a reservation, if its ok for them that one of the beds is double bed and that we provide an extra folding bed for the 5th person (also clear as water in the description of the apartment).
Likewise making such public review is completely not fair and it's even disrespectful, taking in consideration that all was made from our side to be honest, clear and helpful (as is our policy, always!).
Good quiet location for travel round and in Lisbon, airport in 5 minutes of driving, metro station and big shopping center with a supermarket (work till 23.00! ) nearby.
We arrived late evening, but met without problems and no additional payment.
We were greeted by a very hospitable family. Nice area, clean pleasant home. Very nice apartment with antiques, it is very clean and very modern. it's 15 min walk to the train station, 20-25 minutes walk to the Aquarium. I can recommend this apartment 100% !
We were warmly welcomed by the parents of João.
They honestly told us about the electric board and the possibility of black outs if we had too many electric devices on simultaneously.
Owner should update it to this decade. During winter months the apartment is damp and cold if only one room can be heated and the rest stays cold. Also curtain to main door would be nice. Wind would not blow to apartment from the stair area.
The apartment is modest and tells to traveller about the living standard around 30-50 years ago. Very retro and meant to be like that.
Services nearby were excellent and we could park freely in front yard. If the traveller arrives by car from south, it is is more convenient to use the bridge of Vasco da Gama than the other. The 25th of April bridge had a bad traffic jam.

Joao and his wife were very nice despite the fact that we made a mistake in making our reservation. We arrived one day late. They greeted us very warmly and the apart. was O K.. We had a very unpleasant experience. On the second and third day we were invaded by a cloud of little flies coming out of the garbage left by the preceding tenant. Too bad the apart had not been cleaned before we arrived.
Un muy buen lugar, todo funciona bien y el barrio es tranquilo. Excelente recepción por parte de los anfitriones. Cumplió con nuestras expectativas y lo recomendamos sinceramente.
The stay in João's flat was quite nice and everything went as smooth as possible.
We got instructions about the house, and our hosts were very friendly telling us about things to do in Lisbon, etc.
Unfortunately we got food poisoned and stayed at the hospital for more than 10 hours and we could not see as much as we wanted.
As for the flat, quite comfortable and nice. Everything you need is there.
I do recommend staying at João's flat.
The appart was great, well located (10min to station by feet). The checkin was good, the city of Lisbon has been presented to us. I would go back by this appartment with my two eyes closed!
