Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great time in Portugal and Alexander's house is fantastic. And so is the host.was wonderful. He met us at the airport and showed my boyfriend around. He was the perfect host and his house is absolutely beautiful. It looks nice in pictures, but it's even better in person. We had a great time there. It is very close to the beach, to Porto. It is located on a quiet and narrow street, it has a little yard with a wonderful vine over it and a sun deck. I cannot recommend this house enough. Everything is the way Alexandre describes it and more. We hope to come back again, we had the best of times there and everything was perfect and we felt at home at Alexandre's house.

  • Alexandre's house is beautiful, clean and spacious. I stayed there with a group of friends and we had the best time! It's close to the metro, yet in a quiet area. Further, the kitchen is well equipped and starting the day well is easy (just have breakfast on one of the two terraces!). Alexandre is a really good communicator and an overall nice person (he even picked us up from the airport!) Would highly recommend.

  • This is an absolutely fantastic place! Lots of space, great decoration, comfortable bedrooms. Photos just cannot show you how beautiful this apartment is.
    Our host Alexandre is a great guy, he helped us with everything, and waited until very late evening before we could arrive.
    Do not hesitate to book this flat, it is beyond any expectations.
    The only drawback is a location - it will take you 40 minutes to get to the city center. But if it's not a problem for you - choose this apartment without a doubt.
    Thank you, Alexandre!!

  • Como aseguraba Alexandre, nos hemos sentido como en casa. Perfectamente amueblada, con mobiliario de calidad, buenos colchones y muy limpia. Nos ha gustado la tranquilidad de Leça de Palmeira, cerca de la playa y de la piscina de Siza Vieira, ideal para pasar un día de baño (el agua de la playa muy fría, pero en la piscina puede uno disfrutar del baño en agua de mar). Facilidad para visitar Oporto (10 minutos en coche), donde puede aparcarse en cualquiera de los numerosos parkings que hay y que son muy baratos.
    En definitiva, la mejor opción para conocer Oporto. Y no olvidar hacer una visita a Guimaraes.

  • Nous avons passé une super semaine dans la maison d' Alexandre, idéalement placée pour aller découvrir Porto et ses environs, ou profiter de la mer a proximité. A quelques minutes de la ligne de métro et des lignes de bus qui vous emmènent partout dans la ville ou la gare de Sao Bento pour des escapades en dehors de Porto. Visites, découvertes culinaires, shopping, et farniente ont été le programme de la semaine. Les Portugais sont accueillants et très gentils, que de bons souvenirs.....
    La maison d'Alexandre répond aux attentes de confort que nous souhaitions.

  • We had a wonderful time in Alexandre house! The location was very good, only a short walk to the beach. The house is in a nice residential area with lots of small shops, cafes and bakeries to buy our food! The tram station to the centre of Porto was close only a 10 min walk. The host was very nice and helpful. We had a fantastic holiday in Porto, thanks Alexandre!

  • Hemos pasado unos días geniales en Oporto, y eso a pesar de la lluvia, que no nos a dado tregua. La casa de Alexandre es perfecta para pasar unos días con los amigos. Se encuentra en Matosinhos, al norte de Oporto y se puede llegar a la ciudad en tranvía, por lo que no hay ni que coger el coche. Está cerca de la playa, en una zona tranquila. Es encantadora. Está llena de fotos y es muy familiar. Hemos estado como en casa. Alexandre y su mujer son muy simpáticos, unos anfitriones estupendos. Un diez para ellos y su casa.
