Live and work in Lisbon (as anthropologist at university), am from Germany originally, have also lived in the UK, France, US, Indian Ocean, Australia before.
I really enjoyed my stay at this house. I am originally from Lisbon but have been out of the country for the last 10 years, so I knew I wanted to stay in the heart of the city and have a real Lisbon experience/feel. This did not disappoint. The location is great as you can walk to all parts of the centre, and if you need to go further out, Rossio train station is a 10 mins walk away, as is the nearest subway stop. Cais do Sodre (for the beaches) is also a 5 minute walk. Restaurants, bars and nightlife is also at your doorstep.
The house itself is very comfortable and beautifully decorated, and David was a very reliable and responsive host. There are also maps, books and flyers around the flat if you are not familiar with the city too.
And a bottle of Port wine in the kitchen too :)
There are a lot of stairs to climb though, since this an old part of town on the hillside, so not suitable for the disabled or faint of heart! Other than that, everything is perfect. I would definitely stay here again and I would recommend this place to anyone travelling to Lisbon and wanting to experience it!
This is a delightful flat located in the heart of the oldest part of Lisbon where there is no traffic. Many restaurants, cafes, mini-markets and all kinds of shops are located within walking distance and it is conveniently located to the Metro, and the tram and bus service, for journeys further afield. The flat itself is has been fully renovated and is well furnished. It is therefore very comfortable and spacious for two people. It also retains some of its original features and has lots of light making it a charming place to stay. Its only faults are that the neighbours and pigeons can be noisy late at night and the stairs to the flat on the third floor are very narrow and dark (there is no lift). However, we would be very happy to stay here again! Although we did not get to meet David, he was easy to communicate with, via email and text message, and gave every detailed instructions on how to get to the flat.
We stayed in Davids flat for 8 nights and absolutely loved it. It is spacious, beautifully done, homey but not cluttered and even comes with a juicer to perfect your breakfasts in the morning sun by the livingroom windows. It is conveniently located close to the centre and we walked pretty much everywhere from it. Several nice restraunts lie close by as well as supermarkets and Lisbon's main market. Everybody who gets a chance to stay in the apartment can count themselves lucky.
We spent 5 fantastic nights at David's place.
The location is ideally situated in Lisbonne, next to the main touristic areas and the bairro alto. David was a very kind host, available and helpful.
Last but not least : the flat is fantastic for 2, with a big kitchen and a well designed living room.
We definitely recommend this place!
Our stay at the apartment was lovely - the apartment was spacious, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed and more. The location of the apartment was also very convenient as it was in the heart of Bairro Alto, but was also quiet and private. We could have stayed there for a year. David was very accommodating with check in and check out times, and was always quick to respond when we needed anything which was quite rare. Would definitely recommend this apartment!
David's apartment is beautiful with lots of unique pieces of art and personal touches that makes it feel like a real home. Clean, spacious and comfortable. Apartment is in a very central location, just a few blocks away from Barrio Alto, but in a neighborhood with a very local vibe and lots of hidden vistas (warning, you will get your exercise!) David was a gracious host, even helping me with a piece of clothing I left behind. Highly recommend for a true Lisboa experience!
Fantastic apartment in an unbeatable location that gave us a memorable week in Lisbon. I would recommend it highly and wish anyone else who stays there a wonderful visit to an incredible city! Thanks David.
Everything great here. Great location, great host, clean, nice. Get in here and enjoy the city and all it's beauty. David is super nice and was there to meet me on time. Apt. is lovely and is well situated in Lisbon with walking distance to all major sights. Happy to come back here again.
Très bonne situation au pied du Bairro Alto, appartement aménagé avec goût et astuce, proprété irréprochable, très bien aéré, parfaitement équipé.... et en plus : une vue extra! Nous étions très heureux et ont passé un séjour magique à Lisbonne, grace à notre séjour dans cet appartement. David est un hôte attentif et on sent un très bon karma dans ses murs!! Merci David!!!!
all you can imagine to get from living the local life surrounded by typical atmosphere you will get here.

Very vriendly guests and cute little baby. Left the apartment in good condition.
David and Catarina are a wonderful couple, very polite and nice.
They will allways be very welcome
I have known David as a guest. I met his apartment and I can say that is nestled in a typical Lisbon neighborhood. It is cozy and perfect for a couple or small group of friends who decide to live or know a season in Lisbon. Very central, close to public transport or to walk through the center of Lisbon and find good restaurants, entertainment, nightlife, monuments, museums, gardens and all the experience that the beautiful city of Lisbon can offer.
David and Katarina are lovely guests. They are clean, courteous and fun. I enjoyed their visit.
David has a really awesome apartment, which is close to some of the city's highlights. Also short distance away from the river. Beautiful views, wonderful kitchen, cosy dining room, just the right place to feel the rhythm of Lisbon and enjoy.
I got to know David in England and in a university context. Later, by chance we both ended up living in Lisbon, Portugal. I had the chance to see with how much care and attention he set up his apartment in the city centre. This is the apartment he is now advertising on airbnb. It is located in one of Lisbon's most central and traditional neighbourhoods, close the vibrant busy streets of Baixa and of Chiado, as well as to the calming wide river Tejo. David had the interiour of the flat renovated , it guarantees a comfortable stay in the beautiful city that is Lisbon.
Eine wunderbare Zeit hab ich Lissabon verbracht leckere, erschwingliche Restaurants, tolle Tanzmöglichkeiten, viele Sehenswürdigkeiten, der Atlantik, der Fluss Tejo, Sonne, Sommer. mehr .... Da war der Schlüssel an der Sache wirklich unser Appartment. Spontan bin ich in Davids Appartment in Bica, quasi im Herzen Lissabons in Chiado untergekommen. In der geschmackvollen, farbenfrohen Wohnung fühlte ich mich sofort zu Hause. Sauber, mit Blick auf den Tejo und über die Dächer Lissabons. Das Beste- mitten drin und voll dabei ... zu öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln, leckeren Restaurants, Kneipen und Bars sind es nur ein paar Gehminuten. Wow, das war das absolute und ersehnte Kontrast Programm zu Deutschland. Danke David- Danke Portugal.
Eine sehr schön renovierte, hell, saubere und gemütliche Wohnung im Herzen von Lissabon (Chiado) gelegen mit einer schönen Aussicht über die Stadt und den Fluss.
In ein paar Minuten von sehr netten und traditionellen Cafés und Restaurants zu erreichen sowie kuze Wege zu U-Bahn Linien und Bahnhöfen.
I have rented David's apartment for the last two and a half months while I was here on a Fulbright teaching grant. The apartment has been absolutely perfect for my long stay in Lisbon. Firstly, the place is very well outfitted with everything anyone would need to live comfortably. It is very cozy and comfortable with charming decor and accessories. I felt immediately at home and in the apartment and in the lovely neighborhood. I had to commute to work, in Caparica which was made extremely simple by the apartments excellent central location. It is a five minute walk to the ferry's that will transport you across the river, trains to Belem and other coastal points. Just up the hill is Bairro alto which is well known for it's street life and restaurants though I mostly enjoyed the night life and restaurants within the neighborhood here in Bica. After two and a half months I will miss the apartment, neighborhood and Lisbon. I cannot recommend the apartment more enthusiastically and David has been an absolute pleasure to deal with. Do yourself a favor if you are coming to Lisbon and get in touch with David, you will not be sorry.
David is a great guy with a great flat. You'll find youself in one of the most traditional neighbourhoods of Lisbon, with a friendly atmosphere and close to everything important (train, metro, groceries, nightlife, cafés, shops, viewings points). If you want to experience Lisbon at its best make this cosy and bright home your hub. Also you'll be happy to know David lives just around the corner if you ever need salt or pepper. I can also vouche by his cooking so make sure you get in some of that!
I know David and his place in Lisbon. They are quite alike. Full of energy, very bright and cosy. The apartment is located in one of the old popular neighbourhoods of the city. Half the way to the top of the Bairro Alto-Bica hill (one of the seven Lisbon hills) two steps way from the riverside, train station, subway, downtown, bars, city view points, gardens, tramway, local shops, and delicious local restaurants.
An apartment set up to make one feel confortable with all one may need! River view and sun light all day long, as well as the 18 hundreds architecture, enchant me each time I pop in. A little balcony in the kitchen invites for summer time BBQ, and Lisbon is the place to grill sardines outside!
A great place to spend some time! I definitely recommend you to book this place if you´re visiting Lisbon!!!
