João é um excelente anfitrião e uma pessoa divertida, bem humorada e solícita. Sua casa é acolhedora, confortável e com tudo organizado e limpo. A localização é excelente com comércio, interesses culturais e lazer próximos. Há transporte para todo lado praticamente na rua.
Perfect host, wonderful house. Highly recommended!
Joao was a magnificent host and the neighborhood couldn't be more convenient.
Everything was superb. I stayed for an extended period due to study commitments. The room, the host and the area were just what I was looking for
We felt very welcome. Joao was waiting for us and the house was ready in good time. He even lit a fire in the fireplace, cos it was a cold day! (23 celcius is not cold when u come from Denmark ;) )
Joao gave a great walkthru' the house and left numbers and names for everything we might need.
Description/pictures of the house and comments from other users met our expectations. Its a nice cosy house and we used the big eucalyptus tree outside the house to hang a babyhammock and the breese would sving him to sleep. That tree is so beautyfull and is a great thing for the house.
La casa e una tradizionale ben fornita casa Aletejana. C'è tutto quello che serve per passare una buona vacanza e sono sicuro Joao migliorerà sempre le cose . Consiglio a chiunque di passare una vacanza qui. Unica cosa ricordate che è una casa in campagna ed è il suo bello bravo Joao
Hemos disfrutado de una semana en esta casa y no sólo se han cumplido las espectativas que teníamos, sino que se han superado con creces.
Cuando llegas a la casa ya estás fascinado por la belleza de El Alentejo, que no te deja indiferente. Es una casa típica de la zona, sencilla y antigüa, sin lujos aparentes, pero el verdadero lujo lo vas descubriendo según vives la casa, la tranquilidad, el ambiente rural, la sensación de que has desconectado por completo de la hostilidad de una ciudad como Madrid.
A Joao no le hemos tratado mucho personalmente, sólo nos recibió y explicó todo el funcionamiento de la casa, pero a través de sus libros, su música, el equipamiento de la casa, desde los utensilios de cocina hasta lo más insignificante puedo afirmar que es una persona interesante, culta y cordial.
Cerca está Melides, pueblo pequeño con un mercado, algunos restaurantes y bares. De las playas no voy a decir nada, mejor verlas.
En resumen, no es la típica casa de alquiler, es la casa de Joao que te la deja con todas sus cosas para que la disfrutes. Hemos encontrado todo lo que buscábamos y mucho más en esta sencilla y especial casa
Flat is super comfortable&clean, all expectations based on photos were fully fulfilled. We had all privacy needed but also we could spend some time with the host (living room, kitchen ...). The flat is aesthetic, it makes you feel like being home. Great location: metro station is literally just around the corner, blue line to the city center (just fews stops), red line to the airport.
Host Joao was great, really nice for talk, genuinely kind and reliable. He has feeling for people, he lets you all the privacy you need and is always approachable. We felt great in his company.
The house is located 5 km from Melides and 6 km from the beach, meaning 1 hour walking to each destination. The road is not suited for pedestrians, so having a car is recommendable, since public transport is scarce.
There is a fairly trafficked road running next to the house.
There is no sink in the kitchen.
There were plenty of spiderwebs and spiders, dead and alive.
There is everything you need, and then some.
Joao was one of the best hosts that I met! Beautiful apartment, spacious, clean and comfortable, as in the pictures. The apartment has everything you need, very convenient location, quiet area close to the center, a direct metro line from the airport. It is an ideal place to stay in Lisbon!
I've spent 1 month in Lisbon, so having all the things that I typically have at home was essential. My search for lodging was a hell of a ride, but finally I was blessed to find Joao!!! He is very energetic, having this admirable crave for life that inspires everybody around. Joao knows how to enjoy life, and as his guest I totally got the hype!
His apartment is not just a faceless room with hotel-type corporate hospitality, and it's not an ascetic student apartment either. It's a HOME where everything is at your disposal, and the host is so accommodating, that you'd want to stay longer. During my first days in Lisbon he brought home the english version of TimeOut magazine to make sure I'm updated on events in town. Then one day I returned home and found a bowl of fruits on my desk. Then I've met his friends and was welcomed at their homes too. Etc. etc. All those small things that make a big difference were surely there..
Joao, muito obrigadinha pela minha estadia maravilhosa=)
Joao is so greaat!! A really great and interesting men! I felt like I was home ! Thank you Joao! :)
I highly reccomend this apartment. Me and my friends stayed there for 5 days. The owner is extremly friendly and interesting person. Also a very good cook, within his stories about Portugal we learned a lot of things we didn't know before.
The apartment is very clean, it has a lot of space, and it is close to the metro and city centar. It's warm and comfortable interiour is more than we expected.
When we come back to Lisabon, we will surely stay with Joao again!
I have all the best words for Joao and his hospitality. Great apartment, comfortable, clean, near the center-trust me, you will not regret if you book his flat. Except a great host, you'll get a new friend, great chef and excellent sommelier :) I highly recommend!
Joao is the best host ever!! He has a beautiful flat, and if you are lucky he will cook for you!
Choose his appartement!
I've stayed in João's place many times. His both flats are amazing and he is the best host you can find. The Lisbon flat is right in the heart of Lisbon, in front of the metro and walking distance to great touristic attractions. His seaside apartment is great for relaxing, breathe pure air and near one of some of the most beautiful beaches of Portugal. Either you want a city break or a relaxing holidays you can use one of João's places and feel at home!
Joao is great host, I love his flat, everything what I needed was there plus much more!
Apartement is situated in great calm area, nearby city center.
Joao loves cooking, great whines and awesome portuguese cheeses. He become my close friend
I stayed at Joao's place in Lisbon for a few months in 2010 - fantastic experience! Couldn't ask for a better landlord/flatmate. Nice bedroom, wonderful common areas (living room, kitchen, dining area facing a patio/garden), and perfect location. Highly recommended.
João is a great host and his place is as good as it gets in Lisbon. Central, next to the metro and great touristic,cultural places and comercial areas. Dont hesitate to book his place.
