Just perfect. Never stayed in such a great apartment. Teresa, the owner was so lovely and unbelievably helpful and caring. Thanks for making my stay in Porto so nice!
Teresa & Miguel are great people. From the moment we enter the house until we leave Porto we felt so much welcomed by them. The place is really beautiful, comfortable, and well-equipped. You can find everything you want, even spoons and dishes for your baby. It's located in the center of old well-known unesco area near sao bento station so you can easily walk to famous tourist spots, also to the river. And Teresa and Miguel had their own restaurant guide booklet and their choice of restaurants were wonderful. Thank you, Teresa and Miguel, for all your kindness. We really had a great time. Send my best wishes to you. 테레사아줌마랑 미구엘아저씨가 운영하는 곳인데 정말 예쁘고 깔끔하고 진짜 집처럼 세심하게필요한것들을 잘 갖추고 있어요 두 분도 정말 친절하게 잘 챙겨주시고 웰컴 케이크와 포트와인에 물 쥬스 우유 등도 미리 준비해주셔서 편하고 환영받는 느낌이었어요 위치도 상벤투역 도루강 둘 다 가까워서 다니기 좋았어요 주변 맛집도 많이 알려주셔요 강추합니다 :)
Teresa and Miguel are ideal hosts! Communication was perfect from the start. Arriving in Porto rather late, they offered to book a restaurant for us, giving us a choice of places which they had personally tried out. Even though it seemed to be a busy time of the year in the city, they did find us a place in a splendid restaurant with local specialities. They booked a taxi to pick us up on arrival at the airport and we were at the apartment in no time. Finally meeting them in person, they showed us around the apartment complete with a generous decanter of port wine and a fabulous cake rich with orange flavours made by Teresa herself. Perfection. Teresa and Miguel sat down with us showing us the main sites on a map, gave us bus info and generally answered all our questions like only local hosts who have lived a lifetime in the city can. The apartment is compact, well furnished and comfortable for families. The coffee machine was a big plus for us and our hosts did not skimp on the Nespresso capsules. They also left milk, water, soft drinks and a couple of beer bottles (which we left untouched in favour of the splendid Port). All throughout, we couldn't but feel a sense of appreciation for our hosts' commitment. We host guests in our apartment too and we feel that the job of a host is to add value to a trip which is otherwise not easy to find. We esteem their work and investment and are pleased to have contributed to Teresa's full time pursuit in the interest of her young family. Jean-Pierre and Josanne.
Teresa and Miguel are the best hosts! We were welcomed into their apartment with a bottle of champagne and homemade cake. The apartment is very central and walkable to the main tourist sights and great restaurants. It is in perfect condition (looks just like the pictures) with new furnishings and modern decor. Teresa and Miguel were very charming and super helpful with suggestions and even helped us book dinner on New Years Eve. We only stayed for one night but wish we could have stayed longer! Would highly recommend this apartment.
Teresa and Miguel are amazing. We stayed at Janika's place for a weekend and all I can say is that the apartment is wonderful and the location is the best you can expect, right in the centre of the old town. Teresa baked a delicious cake for us, and they made us feel at home all the time. Their tips about restaurants were great. On top of this, the quiet street, quality of matress, pillows, cleaningness, general comfort... a real home!
