I really love hosting and creating a special stay for visitors and it´s awesome that Airbnb allows me to do so meeting so many nice people along the way!
A M A Z I N G ! João is amazing person, very helpful and he really made us feel like we are in our home! The apartment is located in the center and you are able to reach everything on foot. It is clean and for breakfast you can have almost everything. I wish to have more days to stay in Porto. When I' ll be back for sure I will visit him again!
The apartment is really cool, great location in the centre of Porto and you will find anything you need to cook and to make your stay comfortable (even games for rainy days - which can happen in January ;D)
João is a great host, very helpful and funny! I can only recommend to stay at his place!
I spent a very nice journey staying by Joao's place.
Joao and her friend welcomed me very nicely.
I recommend Porto and their apartment.The flat was about 5 min walk to the very center, and just a block from the Metro. The room was large and great view, cool common area to hang out and work, and good kitchen for cooking. Definitely I will come back here again next time!!
Magnífica casa!! Recomendadísima. Si vamos a Oporto de nuevo seguro que volveremos. Un placer haber estado con Joao en su (website hidden) muy majo y hospitalario. Nos ayudó en lo que necesitamos. Los muebles son espectaculares, Joao tiene muchísimo gusto en la decoración. Sin duda la recomendaremos.
Un abrazo Joao y gracias!

I second everything that has been said about this listing. Wonderful downtown apartment, close to everything. Joao keeps everything neat and is extremely helpful and kind. I wouold certainly return in his apartment whenever I return to Porto.
My stay at Formosa was really nice. The flat is comfortable and clean, the rooms quiet and private, the kitchen and bathrooms, spotless.
The location is great, too. close to the center so you can walk everywhere, in a nice, safe neighborhood with cafes and markets around the corner. And as everyone has said, Joao was a great host.
All in all a very good experience. If i return to Porto, I will stay at Formosa again.
I can really confirm all the good ratings and warmly recommend a stay in the CASA FORMOSA (clean, light, spacious, furnished in the best of taste). Good surrounding (all you need is just around the corner: shops, cafés and the historical site you can reach by walk), a fantastic host (very helpful, giving recommendation, caring for you feeling comfortable in his house an in his town). I really cannot find any reason not to go there!
A Formosa is a great choice if you want to stay in a cozy, familiar place when in Porto. Clean and sunny, Joao has superb taste, beautiful furniture and good music and magazines all around the house. Really good location. I highly recommend it! :)
João´s flat was my very first favourised apparment shortly after I signed up on Airbnb and you can say, I only went to Porto to stay at his place. So, after more than 2 years I finally managed to visit Porto and I got not disappointed by staying with him. He is the perfect host and I had a very warm welcome since he takes very good care of his guests. He provides fresh fruits and daily breakfast and gives good advices on places to go so that I felt immediately super homey in Porto. The single room is beautiful, absolutley clean, stylish and cosy like the hole flat itself which is situated just perfectly in the middle of Porto. I highly recommend staying at Joãos places, you will have a wonderful time in Porto!
We had a real great time in "A Casa Formosa" and would go there again anytime. The apartment is extremely cosy, loving and stylish arrangend. It's actually as nice as you can see it on the pictures! Moreover everything was clean, and we got fresh bread or rolls every (website hidden)ão is the best host you can imagine: communicative and extremly caring - but not obtrusive. We got some good tips for restaurants, cafès and activities in Porto. And it was always a pleasure to have some words with him - during the breakfast or other occasions. Nicest accomodation we ever had with Air BnB!
