  • The apartment is charming and very well situated, in a nice and central place. We were 4 and the three bedrooms were just fine. Mario welcomed us on behalf of Joana and was very helpful. We had definitely a very nice time (it was Sao Joao, so the all city was a big party!!).

    l'appartement est charmant et très bien situé. Nous avons été accueilli par Mario qui nous a aidé à prendre connaissance de la ville de Porto. Pour 4 personnes dans trois chambres c'était parfait. Nous avons passé quelques jours très agréables, pendant la Sao Joao (pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas, c'est à faire!!)

  • We were 4 friends (5 the last night) and we had a great time in Joana's place. The apartment is very big and it is located in a quite and good position.
    Joana's boyfriend received us with a plate of strawberries. We soon felt like home!!! He also gave us lots of helpful informations about Porto.

    So definitely recommend this apartment!
    Thank you Joana and Mario!!

  • Myself and my girlfriend stayed in Joana's place for a week in early June as a base for the Primavera festival - what can I say, it's a great apartment! It's really spacious with an option of bedrooms and Joana and her boyfriend Mario were really lovely hosts, were happy to meet us when it suited us and offered us lots of great tips on the city. The apartment is central, so well located, only 10-15 minute walk to the city's attractions but still far enough away to be off the main tourist drag. Many thanks Joana!

    Also - to anyone reading this - go visit Porto - it's a wonderful, laid-back, beautiful, charming city!

  • Four of us had a short holiday at porto and were lucky to stay at Joana's flat. Location is great. A short convenient travel to the airport by fast city tram. Touristic centre is just 10 mins away.

    The flat is very spacious and has a pleasant authentic character. It is nicely decorated and has a impressive collection of books (all in Portuguese though)! Some road noise can be an inconvenience during the night for some. But definitely won't be a problem for people who live in big cities.

    Joana was very helpful. We arrived at 11pm on Friday but she met us in person and made us feel welcome.

  • Great location ... Apartment is a bit rough around the edges and a little noisy.... However Porto is a magnificent place to visit and Joana's place is ideal location to explore it.
    Comfortable clean beds with two washrooms being a plus.
    Mario (boyfriend) provided a wonderful introduction to Porto (Thank You) and the area. To compliment this Joana has a great basket of information waiting for you on the table to follow up.

  • Joana was very prompt to reply to any query prior to our trip and she went out of her way to organise a portacot for our baby. She welcomed us on our arrival and made sure we had everything we needed.
    Her place feels like a home and is spacious and close to everything.
    However, light sleepers beware! The building is at a busy intersection. Saying that, I slept fairly well (and I can be a light sleeper at times) and our 1 year old and 4 year old slept like babies as well.
    I would definitely recommend Joana's place. Great value for money. Obrigada Joana!

  • Very nice Joana. She wait us in the late night when we arrive. Very big and comfortable apartement and very close to the city center. It is only a bit noisy due to the traffic because is at the second floor....but I am a light sleeper! Suggested!

  • We spent four nights at Joana's flat and had a wonderful time there. As everybody else has already pointed out, the flat is super cozy and well located. It's big enough for five people and very comfortable. It was great to get back to such a nice, welcoming place and chill out after an exciting day climbing up and down the hills of Porto. Joana was really helpful and extremely nice all along. We are very, very happy we decided to stay at hers!

About
I'm curious about almost everything and Airbnb hosting started as fun curiosity. Then I realized it was also a nice way to pay for my own vacations... Now?....Errr... I must confess I feel proud of having guests loving the city and the house! :-) This is not definitely my job (I'm a teacher) and sometimes I really miss my house when I "move" out for a few days to let you enjoy the apartment and your privacy, but the extra help with the monthly budget and the happiness of meeting people from around the globe and sharing a little bit of my experience of the city is well worth it! I've travelled a bit myself only to find out that the experience is SO much better when we not staying at a boring hotel that I feel compelled to offer that oportunity to others. Hope you can enjoy my house as much as I do!
