What Past Guests Are Saying
We would like to stay in this apartment again next time in Lisbo
Service was perfect. Thank you once more Susana for your support during the illness of our daughter. The home is comfortable and well designed. The beds are enjoyable. You can walk to every point of interest in the city from this home and also the rail station to go to the beach is very close. There is a great market every day with tasty fresh fruits and vegetables and fish. Also a supermarket is available 2 min to walk. We enjoyed the walk at the riverside, 5 min from home, in the evening until sunset.
Excellent comfortable base ideally situated for discovering lisb
Sergio and Susana gave us a great reception and gave us great advice on how to explore Lisbon including making great recommendations for restaurants. The were available before and during our stay to ensure we had a pleasant break. The apartment is very spacious, clean, homely very secure and tastefully laid out. It meets all the requirements for a perfect break for 2 or 5 or more people. We would certainly recommend it.
Great apartment, great location, great city!
Beautiful spacious apartment which is tastefully decorated, well equipped and quiet. Location is very good for travel links, sightseeing and night life. Susana and Sergio are great hosts, providing a professional service from start to finish and some excellent recommendations for restaurants and things to see - thanks!
Wouldn't hesitate to stay in this apartment again, or recommend it to friends.

Perfect Hollidays in a gorgeous apartement
Nous sommes restés une semaine dans ce superbe appartement qui mérite un 20/20. Felipa nous a reçu avec beaucoup de gentillesse et professionnalisme en répondant à toutes nos question; L'appartement est parfait: location en plein centre à 5cm du bord du Tage, le marché à 5 minutes nous a permis de profiter des produits locaux, la gare pour aller à Cascais est toute proche également, donc...parfait.
On a apprécié la propreté et la literie toute neuve. La place Sao Paulo toute animée le soir, les bars et restaurants tout proches nous ont permis de vivre une semaine inoubliable. Malgré l'animation du quartier le soir, les doubles vitrages nous ont permis un repos "comme à la maison". Merci pour tout
Very convenient to all places because close to market and train station. The apartment is very spaciuos and very clean. Nice job for the decoration. Will already recommend it to our friends.
We stayed here with our family the second week of July and as soon as we entered the place we knew we made the right choice. The place is so spacious and wonderfully renovated and decorated that it is hard not to feel at home instantly. Even now that we are back home looking at the pictures of the apartment brings back all the wonderful memories, from eating nice grilled fish on the square with the locals to cooling down after a walk outside (as it was +40 degrees when we visited).
The kitchen is really excellent and to be able to walk 5 minutes to the market to buy nice fresh ingredients for the nights and then prepare it into a wonderful meal is just perfect.
Location wise I think it is unbeaten as it is very close to barrio alto and chaido. Also communication with the owners was very smooth and friendly, furthermore they provided us with a baby bath and a baby cot. When we visited we were received by Filipa who did a great job in giving us tips and in general welcoming us and also checking us out. If I will go to Lisbon again I know where I will be staying!! Keep up the good work!!

Thank you for this wonderful comment, Jody.
Actually, you were in Lisbon when it was the hottest period for many years! It doesn´t normally touch 40, as we have the river in front and the ocean nearby. But at those times, its very good to have a nice chilled drink in front of the river, and air conditioning at home.
Perfect apartment in a perfect location
Me and my family stayed in this beautiful apartment for the month of June and it was great. There were 5 of us all together and the place is very spacious. With 2 bathrooms and a giant kitchen and living room it was wonderful to relax in. The bedrooms were a great size and very comfy. The dressing room is beautiful as well and lots of space for all of your clothes. I cannot stress enough how perfect this location is. Less then 2 minutes walk from the metro/train station and the river boardwalk. To the downtown core it's a 5 minute walk with tons of shops and restaurants and cafe's along the way. Finally Sergio and Susanna were two absolutely wonderful hosts! They recommended restaurants and activities for our family to do during our stay. On our last day out flight was delayed 4 hours and they had no problem with us staying as long as we needed to instead of us waiting at the airport. They made the whole experience feel very friendly and made us more then comfortable in their beautiful apartment! I would highly recommend this stay for short or long term and any age of travellers

You´re always welcome! And seeing as you stayed the whole month of June, officially the grilled sardine month, I hope you got all your fatty acids up to par! Have a great trip back to the Pacific coast.
Great Place to Stay
Very convenient to all places. Just walking around will be fine. Close to market (fresh food for cooking) and train station. The apartment is very spaciuos and nicely decorated. (Nice job). Will definitely recommend it and the owners were very helpful. Recommended nice restaurant and destination direction.
What a wonderful apartment
We were 6 sisters celebrating a big birthday. The apartment was perfect in every way - beautifully finished and so very comfortable. Each of us felt we were staying in a top notch hotel but had much more. It's perfectly situated. Nearby you will find a wonderful supermarket, a wonderful market with lots of fresh vegetables, fish, meat. And also right beside the main station to take you to the beach. Sergio and Susana are wonderful hosts also. So helpful in every way.
Perfect apartment – highly recommend
In short the apartment is fantastic and played a major part in our first trip to Lisbon being very memorable.
Location - within walking distance of everything: restaurants, cafes, bars, food market, supermarket, shopping, public transport. Walk directly north and you are in Bairro alto and walk towards the north-west to reach Chiado. The apartment looks over a picturesque square and despite initial impressions of the surrounding streets appearing a little 'tired' you quickly appreciate that this is merely the character and charm of Lisbon.
Owners - extremely professional and accommodating. Prior to arriving, all emails were answered promptly and conscientiously. Check in was handled efficiently where we were offered advice on Lisbon and made aware that we could ask for further help/tips during our trip if necessary. We took advantage of this offer by asking for restaurant recommendations through email, which (again) was answered promptly and conscientiously whereby the owners offered two recommendations, both of which proved to be excellent restaurants. In addition, we were welcomed with a bottle of wine bought by the owners. Check out was equally efficient and the owners were kind enough to hail us a taxi to the airport and ensured that we were not taken advantage of as tourists through overcharging (which I've heard is common in Lisbon).
Apartment itself - Wow! The apartment is huge and very attractive! What really struck me is that it's clear the owners have gone above board by decorating the place to a high standard and included several 'homely' touches to make your stay comfortable. The apartment is equipped with everything you'd need and more. What also struck me is how light and airy the whole apartment is during the day and how cosy and relaxing it can be by night. It really is a perfect place if you're looking for more than just a place to put your head down (i.e. bed sit).
A sheer delight!!
Well I haven't stopped raving about this place since I got back, it really is so well presented - light and spacious with all mod-cons a lovely little square to look out onto and less than a 5 minute walk to the metro/ rail station a fabulous market selling all fresh produce located just behind the square. Although situated on the 3rd floor this was not a problem as the building also has a fully functioning lift...a rarity so I'm told!!
Sergio and Susana couldn't have been more helpful either, from the start with my initial enquiry right through to our arrival at the apartment and a lovelier lady would be hard to find!
I hope you enjoy you're stay in this fabulous city as much as we did!
Perfect Place to stay!!!
This apartment is very stylish, grateful illuminated and such a beautiful place to stay. It is very comfortable and well arranged. This complete refurbished apartment with it´s wooden floor and it`s stucco is as charming as you don`t wanna leave anymore. There`s everything you need for cooking, although free Wlan. You don`t have to disclaim anything. And - the dream of every women - one of the two bedrooms has a dressing room!!!
You have a beautiful view to Praca de Sao Paulo with the old church, It´s wonderful illuminated by night. You´re able to discover Lisbon by foot, cause you can reach everything in a fiew minutes. Chiado and Bairro alto are nearby. If you like to go by bus, train, carrie or metro you reach "Cais do Sodre" in less than three minutes. Across the street there is the market - beautiful and interesting especially on saturday.
Susana and Sergio are great hosts. They are very helpful and kind, you can ask everything - they made our stay very easy and comfortable. Such nice idea for our stay like visiting "Cafe Tati", a beautiful and charming cafe with nice people and really good food.
We are so pleased to staying here - you won`t find a better place to discover Lisbon!
Response from Sergio and Susana - 04/14/2013
Thank you, Indra, it was lovely meeting you too! I recall you are a runner... remember that there is the Lisbon Marathon in October! It would be lovely to have you back.
Excellent and classy!
Our stay at this great flat was awesome. It is delightful, charming, spacious and sunny with a wonderful view of the "Praca de Sao Paulo". It is tastefully furnished with quality and comfort and very well equipped (+ wifi + cable TV). It was home away from home, we did not miss anything.
The place is very well located and well connected, only few minutes walking to metro, tram and bus station or the local train station!
But it is also perfect located to discover Lisbon on foot, most attractions are within walking distance. You will be near the river, beautiful monuments and churches, museums, old cafes, theatres, shops and restaurants, and still can enjoy the local atmosphere through the big windows giving to "Praca de Sao Paulo".
Everything was perfect and Susanna and Sergio are great hosts. They are very friendly and helpful, gave us lots of tips and made our stay in Lisbon easy and convenient.
We would definitely stay here again and we will recommand it with pleasure to our friends .
Go - see for yourself!
Sergio & Susanna, thank you for everything!! For a perfect time I had in beautiful Lisbon! I'll be back; can I spend my sabbatical there? The mix of perfect location, a calm oasis in the middle of romantic, lively, happening Lisbon; the amazing light on the houses, the nostalgic feel of the historic part; high speed wi-fi, mohitos on the beach, shop till you drop in the Chiado, the fresh food markets close by, the morning coffees in the little cafe close by.. right, packing now.
Great house, unforgettable vacation
Beautiful house, well located and very well decorated, exactly what we sought for our family vacation. We could not be more pleased.
The hosts were very friendly and helpful.
We love the Chiado, the walks by the river's, the extraordinary food and the friendly Portuguese people.
Keep up the excellent work. We will return soon.
We had a delightful stay, the house is magnificent, a real treat, we´re not used to such high ornate ceilings, very tastefully decorated. We basically walked everywhere with our children, and cooked a lot at home, went out 2 or 3 times for grilled fish. Hosts were great.
