David's place was the absolute perfect place for us to stay during our time in Porto. It was central to everything within the city with plenty of shops, restaurants, and even the river in walking distance. The apartment was spotless, stylish, and cozy - I can't recommend his plac…

Loved the apartment - super clean. Even the entry and hallway were well maintained which we've found unusual at this price point. The neighborhood was funky but in a good way. Lots of tile facades, metal balconies and old fashioned sidewalks. Narrow street which gave tons of vie…

Response from David:
Thanks for your review. As mentioned on the review left for the client we don't admit smart guests in our apartments. After the first day the client started to complain (ikea chair even cut her special legs...) about everything to see if we could change her to another apartment and it was her birthday (with river view; first the didn't rent one with river view and after they were fully booked). If it was so special occasion for a special guest why to rent an apartment for 55€ a day? Guests can choose which apartment to stay we can't always choose our guests... Good luck for the next hosts....!
