Olá, o meu nome é Rafael e trabalho no sector do turísmo. Sou comandante do lugre (schooner) Príncipe Perfeito e terei muito gosto em receber-vos.
Excellent experience on the boat! Access to the lounge area is awesome, and breakfast is great too! It's obviously not in the center of the city but still quite near an "alternative" area to go out at night. And even by walking it's quite close to the busy areas.
Rafael is a great host, he was really helpful!
We enjoyed every moment!
great stay, totally worth it.
Sympa de dormir sur un bateau mais pas grand chose autour et le quartier des docks est animé seulement en fin de semaine et très tard
This was a very bad experience. The first evening there was a 'private event' organised on the boat so we could not check in before 22h. In the cabins there was a smell of fuel coming from the engine room. The bathrooms are old and in a very bad state with moisture on the plastic shower curtain.During the night the water pump was making so much noise we couldn't sleep.There was no one on the boat untill 1 p.m. to turn it off. To little light even to read a book.We decided to leave after the second night although we had booked for 6 persons 4 nights. It is not acceptable that this is advertised on Airbnb. We will file a claim to get reimbursed.A disaster!
Herzlichen Dank an Rafael für die tolle Übernachtung an Bord der „Perfeito Prince“. Rafael war ein toller und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber. Die gebuchte Kabine war super! Sehr sauber, liebevoll eingerichtet, auch Wasser stand am Nachttisch bereit. Durch die Tiden ist es nicht jederzeit möglich, über die „Gangway“ ins Boot zu gehen. Da müssen schon mal 30-40cm überwunden werden, was jedoch kein Problem (website hidden) war jederzeit jemand an Bord, z.B. beim Verlassen/ Kommen mit Gepäck behilflich zu sein. Rafael erzählte, manchmal ist aus technischen Gründen der Kalender zur Buchung mit „belegt“ gekennzeichnet. Teilweise steht jedoch noch eine Kabine zur Verfügung. Eine Nachfrage kann daher aus meiner Sicht nicht (website hidden) ist eine traumhafte Unterkunft in Hafen- und Stadtnähe. Hop on- hop off – Haltestellen sind in der Nähe. Wenn ich darf, würde ich jederzeit die „Prince“ wieder buchen.
Experience inoubliable a bord, Rafael est un hote agréable et attentif. Bateau très bien placé avec parking gratuit pour la voiture et proche des transpors en comun.
Merci à lui et à son équipe en particulier Bruno.
Beautiful boat, walking distance to the train/bus station. Rafael and his assistant were welcoming and provided a unique and great experience.
Lovely boat, and very helpful staff. Would def book here again. Thanks!
Rafael was a good host, always on top of our situation and helped us with some travel problems. Crew also was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a bargain for $5. I have owned boats so it was delightful to talk with Rafael about things nautical & history.
Good luck to you Rafael and take care,
Scott & Denise
It was a Great experience to stay at Raphael's boat. We had a charming cabin and Raphael was always very helpful. Also the two guys from the crew were very kind. We always would come back when we are back in the city.
Good experience throughout
Nice friendly couple, they left the house clean and tidy. Would recommend them to any host!
Raphael and Vesna are awesome people! My wife and I stayed with them for a week or so in 2007. Their boat Principe Perfeito is huge, and perfect for events. I've really enjoyed staying on boats, and this one is no exception. It's closer to an apartment (albeit with low ceilimgs/overheads) than a boat could be. I've always found Raphael to be available and straight forward communicator. Thanks to Raph and his wife's hospitality, I was able to woo my girlfriend into thinking I was an international man of mystery and get her to marry me.
But seriously, good people. You can't go wrong here!
I'd highly recommend staying with Rafael. He's very interesting man and knows a lot about Portugal and its heritage. Staying on his boat - it's a wonderful experience.
