    The views where wonderfull.
    One small remark, maybe it is possible to add a coffee settingmachine to the kitchen. that is the only small remark from our side.
    Migual was a wonderful host, and everything was perfectly in order.
    He was at the airport to pick us up.
    and the tourist information we received was OK for the time we had during our stay.

  • Miguel is an outstanding host! He picked us up from the train station and showed us the apartment and shortly after gave us a mini tour of the city! He was very informative and friendly!

    The apartment itself is excellent - outstanding views and plenty of space. This is a duplex apartment and was very clean and very well stocked. The location of the apartment is great too - located right next to a huge mall with a supermarket just in case you need anything. Getting to the old city is very easy - 25 minute walk or a five minute cab drive. The red bus/blue bus tours also are very easily reachable on Cais de Gaia.

    Miguel recommended activities, restaurants & tourist information all of which we benefitted from greatly. He also dropped us off at the airport for a small fee! It was a perfect end to a great trip to Portugal and a lot of it thanks to the generosity of the host!

  • Miguel was a perfect host. He was waiting for us when we arrived and showed us the apartment. It is a very nice apartment with nice views of the river. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs, with living room and kitchen downstairs. It is very complete. Miguel gave us good information on where to go during our short trip. He recommended a very good restaurant. Will definitely come back next time we visit Porto.

  • We had a great time during our stay at Miguel's appartment. It's simply the best location to stay and visit Porto, in between the old city and the beach. The first night at Porto, Miguel dropped us off at a verry good and affordable fish restaurant along the Douro river. We walked back in about 20 minutes. Next day we walked to the beach and the kids had a great day swimming and looking for shelfs. The shopping center with supermarket next to the appartment is super easy and open until 24:00! The second day we walked to the city center were we visite the shopping area, unlucky we came back to late to the riverside and missed the last boat tour on the river. So w'll have to come back one day to do that. The apartment itselfs is a good base to visit the city. it's verry clean and spacy. The kitchen is super with a large fridge, oven and all you need to cook a good meal, however un extra pan and some big salad bowls would not be out of place. The only thing we did not liked was the trafic noise that started early in the morning until late at night. But then again we are not used to live in a big city. we surely recommend Miguels place to visit the beautiful city of Porto.

    Response from Miguel:

    Thanks for your suggestions, I already put in the apartment an extra pan and a big salad bowl, if you asked for it I would have bring it to you on the same day. Regarding the traffic noise, it is as you said, you are not used to live in the city with cars crossing the streets, that has to be with your calm life at the country side, because no one else mentioned that and I don't ear any annoying noise. But when you miss a bit of cosmopolitan city life, the apartment is available for you! Thanks for your visit!

  • Wir haben eine sehr schöne Woche in Porto verbracht. Unser Gastgeber Miguel hat uns sehr gut empfangen (schon am Flughafen) und war sehr rücksichtsvoll während dem ganzen Aufenthalt.

    Die Wohnung ist bequem, sehr gut eingerichtet und für eine Familie bestens geeignet.
    Von der Wohnung aus hat man einen herrlichen Blick auf die historische Altstadt von Porto.
    Ein wirkliches Erlebnis, man fühlt sich schnell wie zu Hause!
    Wir danken nochmals Miguel und hoffen auf ein baldiges Wiedersehen!

  • We had a wonderful time in Porto and a big part of it was due to Miguel. Miguel met us at his beautiful apartment and made us feel at home right away. He offered to show us Porto or to guide us in our travels, we took him up on his offer to be our guide and had a great time. .
    Miguel's apartment is awesome! It is clean, quiet and has a marvelous view of Porto too. We cooked some of our meals in the apartment, it has everything one would need to prepare a meal. We also appreciated that there was toilet paper and dish soap already there so we didn't have to run out to the store when we arrived.
    Thank you Miguel for a memorable time in Porto. We consider you our friend and you are welcome in our home anytime.
