Description

The space

We pride ourselves in our atmosphere - we made the perfect chillout house, for you and your friends.

We specially welcome large groups, and people eager to know Porto, have big dinners, try the wine, and of course, enjoy the house!

We have a huge, super confourtable space for you and yours!

We'll get you a portuguese phone number (no sense in spending money with roaming) if you need to call and ask for advice on what to do next or where to sightsee!

We can guarantee a very confourtable stay, most of all - no sharing beds, lots of space - like having a private hotel just for you!

Play pool in your living room, and have some Port wine while you do it ( - like a Boss - ).

Play vintage Sega Megadrive games with your friends before you leave to visit our old school neighbourhood.

Our house is huge, by the way:

5 rooms, 2 of them double with private bathrooms, 3 floors, 2 living rooms, a huge garden, and all the equipment you might need: washing machines, dryers, really fast wi-fi (100mgs\second, of course), lots of kitchen space, and the most important part, a really cool and relaxing atmosphere!

We have a huge garden, perfect for bbqs, or chilling and catching some sun - we have a perfect sun roof, designed for that!

Basically, we have room for 10 to 12 people, easily =)
So dont hesitate to plan a trip with friends, just to get to know Porto.

We're very close to the center, and our area is pretty cool to visit, with lots of little tradicional shops and bakeries - a very typical Porto neighbourhood.

We have a big grass-filled garden, perfect for picnics, just down our street, and jogging and biking courses at the door, if you're a fitness fan.

Also, if you want to see the city by bike, we have a few! - right now we have a hoard of seven bikes, and the number is coming up every few months ;)

For the football fans, we're close to the stadium, and for the movie fans, we're close to Dolce Vita shopping center, wich has a cool cinema with very very cool prices.

The house is pretty international, as we normally host erasmus students, so we speak english quite well, as well as spanish and some french :)

We make a point of showing the nightspots and interesting parts of the city to all those who stay with us, so come and join us in Porto!

Our space is unique for it's acessibility and ample environment - you can host a party, have a chillout session with friends, or just take a room and a bike, if you feel like it, and spend your time getting to know the city: your choice :)

Also, an important note: we have a very good cleaning service!

Don't hesitate to contact us for more info, or just to ask a question or two - we're here to help make your Porto experience the best one possible.

Cheers, and hope to se you soon!

Guest access

Our guests have acces to the whole house - no more, no less - chill in the garden, play some pool, use the kitchen to your hearts content, and always always always feel free to call me ( on our house phone ) and ask for advice on anything at all, and of course, enjoy the neighbourhood!

Interaction with guests

What I normally do is show guests the best places to eat, visit, have a drink, sightsee, etc. on a map of the city I'll prepare for you guys - if you want to come and hang out with me and my friends, please, feel free!
If not, I have a phone prepared for you witch you can use to call me at any moment and ask for advice or directions ;)

The neighborhood

Our neighbourhood is very, very typical - old ladies sitting in the sunlight, lots of old-school grocery shops, little cafés, gardens, etc. The perfect place to relax, it's not noisy or uncounfortable - if you're on holiday and want to meet the city, you can't go wrong with us.

Getting around

We have easy access transport to all of Porto, metro and bus - going to the main historic spots, as well as the beach and casa da musica (the arquitecturally - did I spell that right? - famous music hall).

We also have a direct line to the airport by bus and metro very close by, so after hours arrivals aren't a problem at all!

We have our own parking spaces for the house, so bring you car!

This is a great house, all the rooms have their own style and quirkiness. Although slightly out of the city centre, there are regular busses and the metro isn't far away. The hosts are very helpful for places to eat/drink/see.

The host of the property and the person who received us there were both very responsive and knowledgeable, the house was clean, and we felt safe there. We didn't find the house to be what we would consider a "mansion" however - rather in north america we would call it a "townhouse". We also found the location to be a bit difficult - really it is a bit of a walk to get to any grocery store or cafe, and likewise public transit to and from the tourist sites took much longer than we expected - so we ended up taking taxis, which is fine as they are inexpensive, but not an ideal way to travel with a large group as you need to take more than 1 vehicle. I also realized only before we were to get on the plane that we had not been provided with the actual address of the home, which was stressful. To his credit the host told me what it was right away when I sent him an SMS, but this info should likely be provided ahead of time. There are a lot of bedrooms so it is a good option for many people to be under one roof.

We had a great time in the house! We were a big group of 10 people and there was lots of space for all of us. There are several bathrooms and bedrooms on two different floors with the kitchen and common area located in between on the ground floor. The mattresses are not the most comfortable ones but for a weekend with friends this is a perfect spot. The house has a good vibe and Amelia was very helpful and giving us a lot of recommendations for Porto. It takes around 15 minutes to walk to the metro and from there it's 10 minutes to the city centre. Thanks João and Amélia for a lovely stay!

João and Adelia were the perfect hosts and the house was ideal for our stay. Plenty of living space and abundant bedrooms meant everyone staying could make their space their own. We took our two teenage children and two of their friends and we found the size of the house, layout and amenities (the pool table was a godsend for four kids!) made our holiday totally relaxing and enjoyable. It is located slightly out of the centre but easily accessible via the regular and easy-to-navigate public transport system. Local taxis to the further away but even more beautiful beach at Gaia were very reasonably priced. The huge local shopping mall was a big draw for our teenage children - a daily stop-off point (for them!) after a nice day at the beach. Our hosts were kind, friendly and super-helpful, being on hand throughout out trip via text or phone and responded promptly. The apartment was clean and well-appointed with appliances and facilities for cooking, cleaning and laundry. We wouldn't hesitate to rebook this house for any future visit to Porto.

Our stay in João house was superfun. Clean, colorful and full of those little details (guitars, pool table/tennis table...) that made a vacation for a group like us really enjoyble. Plus he helped us with every information we needed to visit Porto. I really reccomend it.
