Super location. Don't understand how our booking went wrong - we were looking forward to the romantic flat with love seats... The equipment in the flat we were in was very basic, and the lighting poor - expecially in the kitchen area. (It is a great flat to be enjoyed in g o o d , sunny weather!)

I have stayed in several rented flats through Wimdu and other similar sites in several different countries and this was my best experience so far. Christina and João were welcoming, professional, and comprehensive. I had immediate responses to text messages upon arrival to Porto to provide accurate descriptions for arrival to the flat and they were there to greet me at the time they said they would be. Amazingly, these details which might appear simple to fulfil, are often forgotten about or messed up entirely by hosts. Before leaving us, Christina and João made sure we were comfortable and had everything that we needed. This included a comprehensive list of printed recommendations of bars, restaurants, activities and suggestions for our stay.
The flat itself was beautiful. A modern conversion in an old building which the photos don't really do justice. There is a big entrance space that leads to a large bedroom (very comfortable queen sized bed), a perfectly proportioned bathroom (great shower and bathtub, bidet), and a kitchen/living room. The bedroom and the kitchen/living room had floor to ceiling windows that looked out on the old buildings at the edge of the old district of Porto and let in beautiful natural light in the morning. The location of the flat was perfect, with everything in walking distance.
I would not hesitate to stay here again. 10/10.
Most beautiful appartment in Porto! In the middle of the town with everything you need. Cristina, you should mention that there is a hairdryer :-).
Wonderful stay in Porto in great location !
We arrived at midnight and our hosts were already expecting us. They were extremely friendly and gave us very valuable information on the city. We felt very welcome in the apartment which we had rented for 11 days. The two rooms are spacious. The hallway is big and contains closets for belongings. The kitchenette contained all kinds of equipment which we did not use. But we used the electric water heater to prepare our morning tea which we enjoyed on the small balcony in the morning sun.
The location is absolutely excellent, 10 minutes from the Douro Ribeira, 15 minutes to Bolaho market. Just a couple of houses up the road is a small bistro serving wonderful little dishes of organic food.
A great big thank you to John and Christina. We will definately visit Porto again and this apartment will be our preferance for accomodation!
Great appartment in a central location!

Staying at the apartment of Cristina and John was great. Both are wonderful hosts. Cristina and John made us feel very welcome and given us a lot of information about Porto. The apartment was spotlessly clean and decorated with lots of charm. The historic ambience was maintained by a gentle stylish renovation. In the apartment nothing was missing and the views of the cathedral from the balcony was awesome. The apartment is very quiet and is located in the pedestrian zone. Everything is very good erreichbat on foot. We thank our hosts Cristina and John very much for everything. We are happy to return to this place wunscherschönen.

Der Aufenthalt im Apartement von Cristina und John war grossartig. Die beiden sind wunderbare Gastgeber. Cristina und John haben uns herzlich willkommen geheissen und uns viele Informationen über Porto mitgegeben. Die Wohnung war blitzsauber und mit viel Charme eingerichtet. Das historische Ambiente wurde durch eine sanfte stilvolle Renovation beibehalten. In der Wohnung fehlte es an nichts und die Aussicht auf die Kathedrale vom Balkon aus war einmalig. Die Wohnung ist sehr ruhig gelegen und befindet sich in der Fussgängerzone. Alles ist sehr gut zu Fuss erreichbat. Wir danken unseren Gastgebern Cristina und John ganz herzlich für alles. Wir kehren gerne an diesen wunscherschönen Ort zurück.

Cristina & John are very nice and helpful people, giving lots of information at arrival. House in the middle of Porto old town (pedestrian zone), many nice shops, bars and restaurants in the neighborhood, very close to the river and many sightseeing spots. Don't bring a car, parking is difficult. Flat very clean and decent, well-equipped. Only one negative point: the ventilation of the downstairs restaurant is somewhat annoying, since it's close to the windows and runs half of the night.
Anyway: Thanks for the nice stay, we enjoyed Porto very much!
We spent three days with our baby a year and a half in this apartment.
We arrived about an hour and a half later than expected due to a flight delay and Cristina & John very kindly waited for us to give us the keys accompanied by a glass of port wine "thank you very much !!". They provided maps and a dossier with areas of interest (restaurants, wineries, supermarkets ...) and all this is appreciated when you arrive in a new city.
Very nice and clean apartment with everything you need, though perhaps a television to distract the small at times would have been nice.
Regarding location, just say it's excellent! (Close to everything) and only downside say that just below a bar / restaurant that puts music speaker on the street, which made our first night we could not sleep until 00:00 because of a tour group extremely elated, but our baby and found out !!!!. The other days the music was bearable.
Pasamos tres días con nuestro bebe de un año y medio en este apartamento.
Llegamos cerca de una hora y media más tarde de lo previsto por culpa de un retraso en el vuelo y Cristina & John nos esperaron muy amablemente para darnos las llaves acompañado de una copita de vino de oporto " muchas gracias!!". Nos facilitaron mapas y un dossier con zonas de interés ( restaurantes ,bodegas, supermercados...) y todo esto se agradece cuando llegas a una ciudad nueva.
El apartamento muy bonito y limpio con todo lo necesario, aunque quizás una televisión para distraer al pequeño en algunos momentos hubiera estado bien.
Respecto a la ubicación, sólo decir que es excelente! ( cerca de TODO) como única pega decir que justo debajo hay un bar/restaurante que pone música con altavoz en la calle, cosa que hizo que nuestra primera noche no pudiéramos conciliar el sueño hasta las 00:00 por culpa de un grupo de turistas extremadamente eufóricos, aunque nuestro bebé ni se enteró!!!!. El resto de días la música era soportable.
We very much enjoyed our stay. Nice welcome, clean and nice apartment in a charming street and central location in the center!
We hebben erg genoten van ons verblijf. Prettig ontvangst, schoon en leuk appartement in een sfeervol straatje en centrale lokatie in het centrum!
