Apartment is spotless and I would like you to keep it that way. Be respectful in the building and in the apartment since I do have neighbors: lower your voice inside the building and the apartment and close all doors (building, apartment and bedroom) quietly. My neighbors love their sleep! I request that you don't bring guests home, but there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby to meet up with them!

My wooden floor is very apprehensive about luggage wheels and high heels! Please, when inside the apartment, pick up your luggage and remove your high heels. My curtains are also very frighten so, please, be gentle!

Take special attention to decorative objects, furniture, bedding, books and art pieces and care in handling all equipments.

Don't flush any items like: floss, band aids, disposable wipes, feminine hygiene products, condoms and hair. Improper flushing will lead to clogs and can potentially impact the water environment.

After a steamy shower leave the bathroom door open to make sure fresh air circulates.

Guests are responsible for leaving the apartment/rooms in a reasonably clean and tidy state on their day of departure. This especially applies to ensuring that garbage is bagged up and removed from the apartment/rooms and disposed of appropriately.

When leaving the apartment/room (during and after stay) all lights and taps must be turned off, as well as the electrical fan/heater and all windows closed and, after stay, leave the key on the dinner table.

Everything should be left as and where you found it.

The apartment is a non-smoking property. Guests are only permitted to smoke on the balcony. (Remember to close balcony doors while smoking)

Unfortunately, the apartment doesn't have the facilities available to accommodate pets.

No cleaning fee. After one week stay: free cleaning, change of bed linen and towels.

Please Note:

En suite with private balcony accommodates 1st and 2nd guest, bedroom #3 accommodates 3rd and 4th guest, bedroom #2 accommodates 5th guest.

Half bathroom will be available for 5 guests reservations.

Thanks!

Wow! This was an amazing stay, highly recommended. Luis truly is a super host. Besides the place being absolutely immaculate and beautiful, Luis was always available to give suggestions and answer any questions. Can’t recommend enough. I’ve stayed in a number of Airbnb’s over the years and this stay was by far the best.

Myself and 2 friends stayed at Luis's apartment for a short break and LOVED it. The apartment was spotless and beautifully decorated, and Luis was a great host. He provided a map with all his recommendations which was very helpful, we used it constantly throughout our stay. We really enjoyed our trip to Porto- it's a beautiful city and would happily stay in Luis's apartment again :)

Excellent unit, spacious, comfortable and strategically located in the hart of Porto. Delivered excellently clean, by Luis, the owner, who was also very helpful to newcomers to the city, providing a lot of information about what to do while there. We were 4 adults and stayed for 4 days. There were 2 big bedrooms one in suite, and 2 baths. One larger than the other. Very comfortable. A large kitchen and a living room where we had breakfast and watched some TV at the end of the day. It has a balcony where you can see the rooftops of the old city and enjoy the afternoon. Seagulls (in the city) mix with cats, pigeons and bats (at night), without much noise. Nice to recover before heading out for dinner. Within 15 minutes walk you can get wherever you want in the old part of the city. The only comment here is that the unit is in a high part of the city. You have to walk up the hill. The unit is in the first floor, by stairs (seemed like two stories). The comment is directed to those with walking problems. Around the block there is a city supermarket to buy anything for the staying. And down the street (1/4 of a mile, or 400 m) an excellent cafe and bakery for the morning start. The unit has a combination of windows that serve as a noise isolating feature. You do not hear the city traffic until you open one or both of the windows. Then you realize the enhancement of the unit. The only thing that you need to bring with you for the first day (other than a toothbrush) is something to drink in the evening and some milk for the breakfast. Very good, functioning, as depicted by the pictures, clean unit, by a very friendly owner.
