We felt very comfortable in Mateusz' place! He cared a lot about our well-being and helped whereever he could to make our stay as good as possible.
We were quite unlucky with the weather (mostly rain...), so we were even happier to have such a cosy home to dry and get warm again. The flat is nicely decorated and very cosy. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, so we could easily cook at home if we wanted to.
The neighbourhood is not very touristy, which we enjoyed a lot. You can get to the city (and touristy) center very quick so it was a good combination.
To put it in a nutshell, if we come back to Porto, we would definitely stay with Mat again.
Great place and the host! If our friends will ever go to Porto we will sincerely recommend them this apartment! Well if we'll ever go back I can't imagine another place to stay! :) It's spacious, clean and comfortable. It's a great place to stay for longer or for just few days. Good connection with Porto center (Sao Bento) and very close to the lovely wineries. And Mateusz is a real superhost! :) Very caring for His guests. We felt here almost like home. Greetings form Poland and keep up the great work! :)
Host: Mateusz was a very friendly and welcoming host. He really took time to explain to us the local hot spots, restaurants and speciality dishes. If we had any questions, he was very quick to reply, and did so in a very friendly manner.
Apartment: the apartment was clean, with all basic necessities. Everything we needed was there. A fully equiped kitchen, a good bathroom, a small bedroom, but with loads of storage space. The mattress was a bit hard for our tastes, but that's a matter of personal taste. One thing to note, that we didn't realize beforehand: Central heating isn't very common in Portugal (houses, shops and restaurants, you name it), so in the cold and wet winter months, make sure to come prepared with extra layers of clothing.
Area: Porto certainly has it's attractions, but if you're able, rent a car. Then you get to drive to beuatiful beaches, the Douro valley with the vinyards and very old cities in the area.
I have come to Porto for a long weekend, and this was the first time I've tried AirBnB. My experience has been a very positive one. The room and the communal areas look exactly like in the pictures, well maintained and clean. The location is also great. Mateusz is a great and friendly host, very accommodating and helpful.
Przede wszystkim chciałbym gorąco podziękować Mateuszowi za gościnę mnie i mojej dziewczyny podczas naszego pobytu w Porto. Opis pokoju i ogłoszenia zgadzał się w 150% z tym, co zastaliśmy - ponadto całe mieszkanie przeszło nasze najśmielsze oczekiwania. Sam Mateusz był super pomocny, wyszedł po nas na stację metra, opisał okolicę, powiedział parę słów o sklepie, o mieście. Codziennie był w mieszkaniu, więc żadnego problemu z kontaktem nie było.
Dla nas był to pierwszy wyjazd z Airbnb i muszę powiedzieć, że na pewno nie ostatni. Dzięki temu tym bardziej zapamiętam Mateusza jako idealnego hosta i mam nadzieję, że się jeszcze spotkamy w Porto :)
We had an amazing in Porto and Mateusz contributed to it!
The bedroom was really nice and perfectly clean, and we had complete access to the appartment and the nice terrace!
Mateusz came every day to clean the appartment and was very friendly, advising us a lot about things to do in Porto, and offered help any time we needed it.
Finally, the place was only 30min walking to the old city, or 3 metro stops.
In a word, amazing!
Highly recommended, we will advise it if some friends will visit Porto!
Thanks a lot for this wonderful 4 days there!

About the Host, Mateusz
I'm originally Polish, but living in Portugal. I'm a civil engineer, but my other life passion is traveling and living internationally. I've lived in several countries and always like to experience domestic culture. I try to live as native people do anywhere I go.
As a host I am easy-going. I like to learn as much as I can about the history and people of the place where I live, so I can advise you several charming and interesting places to visit around Porto. Don't hesitate to ask. ;)
