The kitchen is fully equipped including washing machine, microwave, coffee maker and kettle.
Bathroom is a small but a functional one, with shower (not bath tube).
The living room is equipped with a double sofa bed that fits extra 2 persons.
Still for top comfort, the house is best fitted for up to 3 adults or a couple with 2 children.

I´m a photographer based in Lisbon. Most of my work is on Travel and Interiors.
For three years I was writing about Lisbon for an online travel magazine (Planet Eye), sharing the best places on my city. Now I get to share directly to my guests...
I believe Lisbon is one of the best cities to live in. Lisbon is splendorous... We have a long history that greatly enriched our culture. We have great beaches in and around Lisbon. We also have Sintra and so much more.
Besides all that, I love living just outside Lisbon, by the sea.
