Great room and even greater host. The room was exactly as described, very clean, comfortable and spacious. Private bathroom also very clean and comfy. João waited for us outside as we arrived and led us into the apartment while explaining us everything we needed to know. He was super friendly and welcoming, and during our stay he made sure several times that we are pleased and don't miss anything. He owns an adorable dog. Super recommended!

João is a wonderful host. Without pushing he offers a day tour into the beautiful Douro valley and a motorcycle ride through old town Porto and the north coast. I took advantage of both offers and enjoyed his knowledge about these areas, the sights and vistas.

This is a great location if you prefer walking to the sites and sounds of Porto---only 45 min.s to the main attractions. 15 mins to authentic , inexpensive Portuguese food. Joao is very helpful and communicative and leaves you alone to do your thing.

We had a great time! João picked us up from the train station and showed us exactly what metro tickets we needed to buy. The apartment was very clean and João let us do our laundry as well which was extremely helpful, and he was always available to answer any questions we had It's a great location, but it depends on what you are looking for. To get to the center of Porto, you have to take bus and metro, but it does not take very long and the bus stop is very close to the place. If you like walking, there was a gorgeous 45 min walk to Porto that João told us about. The walk is right along the river and is a spectacular view the entire time! João was always very helpful and made sure we knew how to get to the places we were going.

I am a teacher of arts on a secondary level who enjoys going for motorcycle rides, walk by the beach, canyoning in the river and prepare good and healthy portuguese meals with good wine (without geting drunk) while talking about culture issues, ... I have two children that are studying in Manchester. The boy (26) studies piano, the girl (21) studies International politics. I am a positive person and I like to meet people.
My goal is that you feel at home and not just a guest.
