Ours is a home for living a quality life, and we enjoy sharing the experience. So, if you want to add quality to the end of your day, then ours is the home for you.

The space

Our home is a newly restored spacious (111sq/m) top floor apartment that is decorated with an eclectic mix of recovered vintage and modern design.

You will enter through the front door into a corridor. To your left you will find a 43sq/m combined living area with a small balcony that provides you with a view to the street. To your right (the back of the apartment) you will find the master bedroom, bathroom (shower only) and modern kitchen. The kitchen and master bedroom are connected by an enclosed veranda that runs the width of the apartment. The second bedroom is situated in the area between the front and back of the apartment, running the length of the corridor. This room comes with a comfortable couch that folds open into a bed.

Given that it is a top floor apartment you are guaranteed lots of natural light. All day. Even on sunny Winter days.

There is a saying amongst us foreigners that live here: “if you want to know Portugal then eat and drink your way through it”.

So, if you have a penchant for exploring people and their culture with palate too, then you will find ours to be an “easy-to-use” kitchen and the dining room table perfect to remain at for hours, chatting even when someone from your party prefers to lounge instead.

Just to be certain that your ambient experiences rate higher than a “Barry Manilow and a Piña Colada”, we will leave you our music - jazz, blues or classical -, we have an extensive collection to explore. If you are a family with pre-teen young ones that relishes old school distractions, I allow access to my Looney Tunes collection.

There is only one rule. It goes by the name “Space is the Place”. And if you want this space as your place, show it “the love” and you should walk away from Lisbon with magic in the mix.

The apartment was beautiful and in a great location. Johan was extremely attentive so I definitely recommend this option for long stays in Lisbon. There are plenty of local food options close to the apartment and you can see the sunset for balcony :) Johan gets 5 stars!

What an amazing place. This is what AirBnB is (or at least should be) all about, staying somewhere truly memorable with a personable host who provides local advice and assistance. Johan was extremely accommodating, before and during our visit, meeting us at the local metro on arrival and providing some great local advice on restaurants, excursions etc. The flat is uniquely decorated and clearly the work of an artist, furnishings and decorations all thought about in great detail. this said, Johan was very relaxed about our 2 small boys staying and not precious about the various antique pieces of furniture. All in all, a wonderful place a wonderful host and a unique experience. We would love to return with our boys when they are older!

This is the experience the creators of Airbnb had in mind when they designed the site! Our enthusiastic host met us on the stairs and carried my suitcase as he ushered us into one of the most beautiful apartments I have ever seen. Completely gutted and refinished by Johan himself, the apartment has a warmth and soul that one feels immediately upon entering. Low lighting and jazz greeted us at the door which opened up to a romantic, seductive vibe. The apartment is clean and beautifully furbished, and is well-situated in a lovely neighborhood that allows one to live amongst the locals or hop on the green line to visit other parts of the city or head to the beach. I cannot say enough about how accommodating Johan was- he made sure that we had places to go and even people to greet us when we went. He was an invaluable resource for us first-time travelers to Lisbon. Our stay was an absolute dream. Top class!

Johan i Sonia to wspaniali ludzie, sympatyczni, peni rdosci zycia, zakochani, otwarci. Zostalem przyjety jak czlonek rodziny lub nawej jak syn, lub (ziec) son in law. Od pierwszych chwil, juz na schodach wspanialego domu Pan Johan powital mnie przyjaznym, szczerym usmiechem, machajac reka. Bylem godnie przyjety, bardzo wzruszony na nieznanej mi ziemi Portugalii. Mieszkanie Johana i Soni jest jak Lisbona, eleganckie, tajemnicze, ujmujace, ma swoj styl, chetnie powracalm do mieszkania po dlugich wcieczkach po Miescie. W mieszkaniu Johana i Soni sa wspanaile dziela sztuki, nelzy podkreslic, znajduje sie kilka interesujacych obrazow, a szczegolnie jeden, portret naturalnej dziweczyny z Portugalii, melancholijny, jakby z pogranicza jawy i snu,to zjawiskowe dzielo. Mieszkanie jest bardzo czste, zadbane, wygodna lazienka, przestronna, wpsaniala sypialnia, wielkie lozko XXL zapewnialo wspanialy sen, swoja droga, mialem kilka ciekawych snow, czysto surrealistyczne historie. Moge jedynie zarekomendowac mieszkanie Johana i Soni jako najlepszy sposob na wspanialy pobyt w Lisbonie. Mam wrazenie, ze mieszkanie Johana i Soni jest w pewnym sensie mala Lisbona.

O apto condiz com as fotos apresentadas no site. Super conchegante e nos sentimos como se estivéssemos em casa. Sonia e Johan ( anfitriões) nos receberam com muito atenção e carinho e tivemos a oportunidade de fazer novos amigos. Experiência maravilhosa e super indico... eles nos deram dicas incrível de restaurantes e lugares para visitar que, sem dúvida, tornou nossa viagem ainda mais especial e agradável. Tenho apenas a agradecer a atenção e o carinho que fomos recebidos. O apto fica próximo do metrô o que facilita muito o deslocamento e a vizinha é muito tranquila e segura.
