“Beautiful views”
Reviewed 3 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Pedro (the owner of the property) is so very helpful and informs you of all the best places to visit in Oporto, Portugal. He picked us up at the bus station and as he drove us back to the apartment told us a wealth of info about the area. The one best restaurant that he recommended to us for fish near the Rebiera section of Portugal we went to twice because we loved it so much. The communication before our trip was extremely good with Pedro and he arranged for us to take a tour of the Douro Valley since he wasen't abvailable to take us. Our views across the river to Porto were incredible and we were so close to the bridge it was easy to walk across and walk around the sights. There is a little confusion about the amenities of the apartment and pictures featured as there are pictures on the website of the best of all three of Pedro's apartments. So I had thought that there was a washer in the apartment which we could have used having hiked the Camino for 6 days and needed to wash clothes. Found out from Pedro that ours was not the one that had a washer, it was the bigger one below us. Also could have benefitted from blinds in the bedrooms as we were street level and people could walk by and look right into the bedrooms, which they did. The area was so beautiful that we did have a great holiday and hope our suggestions help with making it even better for future visitors.

“Great location, excellent host”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Pedro is a fantastic host! He communicated well before hand and explained where to park. He met us the morning after we arrived and gave us a map and explained where everything was and suggested an itinerary. Then he drove us to our first stop because we were short on time and showed us Fado music and told us about Porto. He was very helpful, including giving us a restaurant suggestion which was the best meal we had in Portugal. The apartment is very spacious, clean, and a really great location. We could walk to Ribeira in less than 10 minutes. Definitely stay with Pedro, and ask him about the tours he provides to the Duoro Valley!

“A real home from home”

We have just spent a few days in Pedro's My River Place apartment which was truly a "home from home". Great accommodation with wonderful views over Porto. Great location with easy access to the wine lodges, and all the other Porto attractions. Pedro is passionate about his city and nothing is too much trouble. Sadly the weather was not kind to us for a few days which made the apartment even more valuable - a place to retreat after a soaking outside. Also a relaxing place to enjoy the sunshine on the little terrace with wonderful views over the river. Well done Pedro!

Travelled with my husband, son and his finance. The apartment was extremely well situated, very comfortable and had everything we needed. From the time I booked it had very good communications from Pedro the owner, who was also a tour guide. Picked us up from the airport and briefed us on what we were seeing on the way to the apartment. For the first time on a city break I booked a guide (Pedro needless to say) we were there for 5 nights and did the all day city tour (a combination of car and walking because of my mobility problems) we saw and learned so much. We also did the Douro Valley all day tour to the vineyards and port tasting. Breathtaking countryside. Great restaurants. Highly recommend the apartment, Porto and Pedro.

Pedro provided us with great suggestions for the time we had to spend. The facilities were the best we had stayed in all week. We can hardly wait to go back.
