We have just returned from a truly great holiday in Daniel's comfortable and well appointed apartment. Everything from the booking and Valuable advice on the journey and site seeing trips etc was made easy by our friendly and helpful host. The apartment had everything we needed and it was in a great area for walking to all the sites......something of interest around every corner. We only had one week but we managed to see Belem by walking along the river, and had two train journeys to Sinatra and Cascais. Lisbon is such a vibrant and interesting city, and who could resist pastel de nata, fado, great buskers, lovely markets and of course, beautiful sunshine. We would like to visit again sometime.
This is a delightful, charmingly furnished base to explore Lisbon. With everything you may need, including a well equipped kitchen and a washing machine, it's close to busses and the metro which are really useful if you want to minimise the uphill/downhill element of a hilly city. Host Daniel was terrific pre arrival, and informative and helpful when we arrived. We followed a lot of his advice about what to see (and what we might skip!) with excellent results. The local neighbourhood come with a little plaza down the hill with a supermarket and a number of restaurants, and a pleasant family park uphill, very suitable for a 5pm beverage. Lisbon is spread over a number of hills and the (narrow, cobbled, sometimes quite steep) pavements need a bit of planning if you are lugging heavy bags, or planning to drive as parking is difficult, both in finding space and in wedging into tiny spaces! But the combination of a comfortable and welcoming place to stay and the manifest attractions of Lisbon make it all work well. Well and truly recommended..
Our host, Daniel, was the person we really needed to start our stay in Lisbon, very kind and ready to help us with everything. He gave us the necessary hints for the local public transports, the easieast ways to rich our points of interest, nearby good restaurants. The appartment is the very one we saw in the photos, well placed in the old part of Lisbon, at a walking distance from the bus lines, subway, and even tram, near the botanic garden. It is provided with a well equiped kitchen, good wifi, and very clean. We really enjoyed our visit in Lisbon!
We would like to thanks Daniel so much for being the best host we could have hoped for. Our trip to Lisboa really was such a success in a big way because of his welcome, suggestions, and friendliness and of course his beautiful apartment. It is in an absolutely fantastic location for everything that Lisbon has to offer. We felt very welcome. In the area you have parks and cafés and restaurants close by, and we also liked how close we were with a short walk to the buzz of the best bars, shops, metro station and viewpoints of the stunning city. All of this was made better when we could rest in such a cool apartment which was both stunningly decorated and comfortable. Comfortable bed, great shower, well equipped kitchen, and everything super clean.
The apartment is exactly as it looks in the pictures, ideal for a couple and has everything that you need for a short stay. The location is amazing and you can reach the mainly sightseeing walking. Daniel the host is very attentive and give you amazing tips about the city and restaurants. We love it!
