We are a happily married couple with a big apartment (our children are currently away at College)! We would love to host you and help you take the most of your time in this wonderful city!
Pasamos 3 fabulosos días en la ciudad de Porto visitando su centro histórico y la bonita zona al lado del río Douro.
Buscábamos un sitio tranquilo y a la vez cerca del centro, y este fue el sitio escogido, y la verdad que muy bien!
Está a tan sólo 10 minutos caminando del ayuntamiento y las principales atracciones turísticas, y si no se quiere caminar hay la opción de coger el metro y los autobuses. Nosotros casi no lo necesitamos.
José nos recibió muy bien y lo dispuso todo para que nos sintiéramos cómodos. Nos dio la bienvenida con un vino muy rico de la zona y nos dió las directrices para visitar la ciudad.
El desayuno muy bueno con productos elaborados en casa!
Muchas gracias José por recibirnos! :)
very kind host, the location was great for us students.
Me and my friend stayed at this cosy flat for 2 nights and loved it! José and his family made us feel more than welcome and the place was spotless. Also, we thourougly enjoyed the yummy breakfast in the morning! Location is also very good: busses to city center around the corner and metro station a short walk from the flat. Definitely recommended!
It's a warm place to stay in Porto. My friend and I stayed there for 9 nights. It's clean, tidy and with breakfast every morning! The entire family from the host is really friendly and helpful. Definitely a great place to stay in Porto.
Friendly family, comfortable flat, delicious breakfast, good location. We are very glad we chose this accommodation.
We stayed at José's studio during 4 days for the Primavera Sound Festival and it was just perfect! We were two young couples, the studio is small but has everything you need (towels, hairdryer, sheets, a big wardrobe, a tv, wifi connection) and is very clean. The area (Casa da Musica) is quiet, safe, lovely and very well connected with metro & buses. José and his wife are very nice, helpful and interesting people, as was their daughter Ines. We had a super breakfast every morning at the time we wanted & we had our own keys for the studio, what made everything very easy. We had the chance to chat a little bit with José & his wife and taste their own wine which was delicious :) We definitely would recommend the place and hope we will stay again there next year!
Porto was the first stop of a week long journey around Portugal and I couldn't imagine a better start than staying in Jose and Adelina's home. We received a kind and friendly welcome, as well as great tipps as to what we should see during our short stay. Their place was really well suited for us because one can easily get to the historical centre from there and it has a separate guest-entrance, so we could explore the city till late at night without bothering our hosts on our way back. If we ever have the chance to go to porto again we would gladly get to know them better.

We very much enjoyed staying at Jose's and Aldelina's home in Porto. The little flat had everything you could wish for including a little terrace where we would have our beautifully laid out breakfast overlooking the roofs and in the company of a few resident seagulls.
The flat is in a safe, quiet and residential/town area with upmarket shopping. There is a possibility to park your car close by. On the corner of the building you can find a bakery/patisserie/Deli that has everything from cakes to wine, cheese etc...You can walk to he center or take a bus or metro. We found our hosts to be delightful and had the pleasure to share a typical portuguese evening dinner with Jose and Adelina and their daughter Ines. It's always more interesting to get the little (website hidden) from people living there rather than general info about a country. The Portuguese are overall super friendly, helpful and genuine people and our hosts are the best example of these qualities. If we were to return to Porto, city we really liked, we would very happily stay with Jose and Adelina again. Thank you again for enhancing our stay in Porto!

This was my second time staying in Jose´s studio, and I couldn´t be happier! The apartment is cozy and is perfect for staying near the center of Porto. Jose and his family are always great hosts, and the breakfast is lovely. This time in Porto, I had a rental car, and he was very helpful with finding free parking. Would absolutely recommend this as a place to stay.
Jose and his family were very warm, friendly and welcoming and gave us perfect directions to find their apartment by car. We had wine and nibbles on arrival, an unexpected surprise. We had lovely breakfasts each morning, the apartment is close to Porto and in a convenient location. Thank you very much for a great stay!
nice and easygoingguests!even if i dind't know josè and his family personally, i found them very respectful an responsive( no problem at all with communication:they told me their plans and needs in time)and left they flat tidy....
So waht can i say? HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ;)
thx josè for your stay XD!
Well let me tell you about the Reis Family we have known them for a long time now, and we first got introduced to this family through Zé Pedro (their son) that we met in an awesome amateur theatre group. From then we became close friends and it was only a matter of time before we got invited into his house and meeting his welcoming family (2 sisters and his parents). His parents José and Adelina, are the kind of people with whom you have a great dinner with (always good food around there as well as some great home-made wine) and then have the most wonderful conversations into the night.
They are really open minded people, so you really feel comfortable around them, and they will do their very best to ensure that you have everything you need. We recommend that you get to know them if you have the chance, they will surprise you with their hospitality.
And now that their "little" ones start to leave the house to study or work they have decided to take into their hearts travellers from Airbnb community, because they are naturally social and welcoming people.
Now about their cool house, you will have your own independence within the flat since you have your own door and a hole section just for yourself, with connection to the rest of the house for when you want to socialize, which is great. And the house is located right in the on of the best areas in Porto just by "Rotunda da Boavista" and "Casa da Musica" 2 of the icons of Porto and its just a lovely area that just has everything you need from shops, to post offices, banks every transportation you need, bars, restaurantes etc... its my personal favorite area of Porto.
So now you have more than enough reasons to chose to stay with the Reis family you won't regret it...!!!
