Great place in a great location. Loved having a small yard out back with a beautiful table. Everything was walk-able for meals, attractions, etc. Metro stop is about 5 minutes away. Michael was an awesome host. After check-in we didn't see him again but through text he was very helpful with making dinner recommendations and even booking reservations for us.

Michael, Benedita's husband, was on top of everything during our stay. He made suggestions on day trips and on places to visit, gave us tips on restaurants and even made some reservations for us. The house is very well equipped and has everything to make your stay very comfortable. Is walking distance from the historic part of Porto and has a couple of supermarkets nearby. The experience all in all was very good and we had the opportunity to spend a week in Porto feeling like at home.

Response from Benedita:
Hi Mateo, I will definitely look into getting some garden chairs, great idea! The garden watering system was on automatic, as it was a hot week it was hard to control when you're not at the house to see for yourself. It has been set to manual now. Sorry about that!

If you happen to come across this listing, consider it good luck and book it! You will feel right at home, particularly if you appreciate art and like to cook and relax outside. The place was great for a visit to Porto with my parents, brother, husband and toddler. It is walking distance to many attractions and close to supermarket and restaurants. But it almost feels like a waste to leave the house that is well equipped with anything you may need and the backyard garden is truly an oasis from the city. It also had toys, a crib and baby bath which was perfect for our one year old daughter! This rental may be best for families as there are two bathrooms- one at the street level (2.5 floors down from the third floor bedroom) one in the master bedroom on the second floor. Michael was an amazing host- welcoming us despite us showing up quite late after driving from Lisbon. He stocked the house with yummy treats and drinks and was available to give restaurant recommendations and help us book a taxi. He made us feel like old friends visiting a new city.

It is such a nice place, you immediately feel at home. Amazing house with such an artistic touch. We loved every piece of it. Near the center and at the same time quiet. Michael helped us with everything we needed, always available and responding. His tips were gold. I would love to come back.

Benedita & Michael's place is beautifully decorated and perfectly located to explore Porto. Michael was very welcoming when we first arrived and really accommodating on early check in and storing bags for a late check out. He also gave us some good recommendations and was keen to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Absolutely would recommend!
