Green Park Residence is a very modern apartment (2007), in the Metropolitan area of Oporto, at Granja beach, 15 minutes driving from Oporto, and 5 minutes walking from the beach. Enjoy a delicious healthy breakfast, a comfortable bed and relax. Go to the beach or swimming pool (sea water or fresh water), or SPA, do some trekking, birdwatching, bicycle rides, surf, fish, golf, horse riding, light aircraft flights, or just have a nice walk through the 15 Km footway along the beach (these 15km beaches have earned a premium quality water and it's classified with blue flags). There are 3 supermarkets around.
Here you have all the options very close!
25 minutes walking through the footway from the railway station. At the beginning of 2011, I started to go to Porto by train everyday, instead of using my car. Usually, I use the footway and I feel that the quality of my life has been improved! It’s a beautiful and ecological opportunity to relax every morning. And I start the day full of energy!
Espinho which has come from a group of fishermen and became into an important beach destination in the 19th century, being visited by a lot of people due to it's well known sea water therapeutic effects, and very well situated, considering the railway built in 1870.

This was my first time using Airbnb, and I'm so well impressed. Raquel is an outstanding host. She's organized, helpful, and thoughtful. She made me feel welcome in her lovely home.
Her apartment is perfect, and the bedroom is spacious and clean. The location is also great because everything, including the beach, is within walking distance.
I'd love to come back and stay here again!
Esta foi a nossa primeira experiência a passar férias através do Airbnb e gostamos imenso. Fomos muito bem recebidos pela Raquel, a casa tem excelentes condições e as dicas da Raquel para o que visitar em Espinho/Porto foram muito úteis.
Gostamos desta experiência e esperamos repetir.
We enjoyed a lot our 2-nights stay at Raquels flat. She did everything to make us enjoy our stay ( thanks for the good cake) and we really felt comfortable. We have got to known her as a flexible and open-minded person that is professional to handle guests. The room was very clean, had a great bathroom and the appartment was very close to the beach where you can just relax or have an endless walk on the dunes.
I was with my girlfriend for four nights guests (or better home) at Raquel's house. It was propably the best place we ever stayed at.
The house is situated less then five minutes from the beach, it is modern, clean and equipped with all you need for a nice stay. The room has a confortable double bed, space for your things and a whole table full of composed information what to do.
Besides the short way to the beach the appartment is a nice starting point for walks, bycicle rides and journeys to Porto or Aveiro, which are reachable by train really fast even latehours.
The kitchen is well-equiped to cook your own food, but there are plenty of nice restaurants in Espinho just a short walk away. In Casa di Papagayu we had the freshest and best fish of our whole life. Also the cafe on the way to the beach is recommended: cheap, delicious and everyone is so friendly.
Raquel herself is a great host, always gave hints, wrote us nice messages and left selfmade cake and deodorant. She made our stay so comfortable as possible. We loved talking to her and she seems to be one of these persons you just have to like.
We fully recommend this appartment and gonna come back as soon as possible.
Oporto Bean & Nature room is in a perfect quiet location, close to the beach. Raquel is a very helpful host, providing support whenever needed.
Wonderful apartment. Among the best we have been to. Very secure building and safe neighbourhood. Parking at door. Racquel was a very friendly and helpful host - excellent English. As we had a car we cannot comment on public transport but it was only a short drive to Porto.
My first experience with air bnb - and it was amazing!
Raquel is such a wonderfull person, we've got some wonderfull moments together, discussing, talking, laughing
The apartment ist really nice, near to the beaches and rhe wonderfull wooden path to Porto.
Thanks to Raquel for all she's done and the great time we've passed in her rooms! Hope to see you again!
