“a unique experience”
We spent 4 days in lovely Lisbon with our kids and this marvellous well equipped apartment made our stay perfect. Its location is ideal,right in the city centre but far enough from the crowd. The flat is beautiful and the owners are such lovely and friendly people! We enjoyed every single moment we spent there..feeling right at home!
Response from the owner Thank you for your kind words. We enjoyed having you stay with us, and would love to see you again. Best regards, Austin
“Best Way to Experience Lisboa”
My husband and I stayed at the Casa Santana for 4 weeks during the summer and couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. It is truly an authentic way to experience all that Lisbon has to offer. Austin and Jordan were incredibly helpful prior to arrival and throughout our stay, providing local information, maps, and being easily accessible to answer questions. The apartment is beautiful, moderns, clean and most importantly, centrally located. The views are absolutely spectacular and you can easily walk to virtually anywhere you would want to go. Despite being right off of the Rossio, the neighborhood its tucked away and very authentic and quite. It was really the ideal location to experience Lisbon! Our month at the Casa Santana was truly one of the best and most memorable experiences of our lives! We cannot wait to return!
Response from the owner Thank you for your wonderful, complete review. I love the pictures! Please do come and see us again, and until then, Godspeed in all your travels. Best regards, Austin
“Lovely apartment in Central Lisbon”
Spacious, quiet, well decorated apartment just a short walk to Rossio Square. The view out the window is stunning. Austin was wonderful to deal with directions for our cab driver were mailed to us ahead of time, she was quick to respond to any questions we had during our stay, and offered to arrange our cab ride back to the airport for our trip home. Jordan met us at the apartment and gave us a tour of the neighbourhood - this helped so much, as he gave us many great recommendations for local restaurants. highly recommended apartment for your stay in Lisbon.
Response from the owner Thank you for your lovely review. The view is my very favorite part of Casa Santana, too! Please come and visit us again. All the best, Austin
“All as advertised”
We very much enjoyed our week long stay in Lisboa. Austin was extremely accommodating and especially helpful with taxis. The apartment had an outstanding view of the plaza, was located close to all modes of transportation, and convenient to groceries and restaurants. While we enjoyed walking most everywhere, those not up to walking especially up/down steep hills might look elsewhere. We especially liked the kitchen as it was well equipped. The dish washer and washer/dryer was also very useful amenity. In all, we'd say that the apartment and management service exceeded our highest expectation. We would definitely stay there again and would have no hesitation recommending it to friends. Bob and Kathy, Oregon
Response from the owner Bob and Kathy, thank you so much for your review. I'm glad you had a good time, and we would love to see you again! Until then, Austin VisitingPortugal.com
“Wonderful weekend in Lisbon”
I spent a weekend at Casa Santana in Lisbon which was not really long enough but with good organization and determination it's amazing how much you can see. I was met by Jordan at the apartment who was charming, warm and welcoming and he gave me a tour of the apartment before giving me a quick guided tour of the neighbourhood including historical facts, interesting places, practical information and places to eat. The apartment was very nicely fitted out and comfortable and Jordan and Deb have gone to great lengths to include everything you might possibly need. There was a complimentary bottle of local wine, cheese, fruit as well as simple thoughful things that you would never carry with you, but might be very handy whilst travelling like umbrallas, travel adaptors, plastic carrier bags, aluminium foil, laptop with wifi etc. It really was like a home away from home. The highlight though was the magnificent views overlooking the main square (Rossio) and beyond down to the sea in the distance. The apartment is right in the very heart of the old town so perfect for exploring the city. Rossio train station was only a 2 minute walk away where you can catch the train to the beautiful town of Sintra. Sintra is only 45 minutes away and boasts the Moorish castle perched on the top of the hillside and Palace Of Pena sitting atop the adjacent hill like a fairytale castle. There is also the National Palace and the amazing Quinta de Regaleira with stunning gardens, grottos, fountains and other surprises. Lisbon is a fascinating to place to visit and I would highly recommend staying at Casa Santana where you will be welcomed like family by Jordan and Deb.
“perfect location, perfect hospitality--your Lisbon home away fro”
I spent a wonderful week in this apartment and I really felt part of a secret, special part of Lisbon. The warm welcome from Jordan and a personalised tour of the local neighbourhood was an excellent start, as was meeting Deb later and hearing her stories about the other towns I would visit on my Portugal trip. The apartment has everything anyone could possibly want (the laptop is so handy as is the washing machine for a lengthy stay) and Deb and Jordan really put themselves out to make sure your visit in Lisbon is everything you want it to be and more. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this accommodation, only fond and wistful memories. I really hope to return. I would recommend it to solo travellers who want to see the ´real´ Lisbon community yet still feel close to the tourist sights and it would also be great for families who want to self-cater. Just be prepared to climb lots of stairs (you´ll need them to counteract all the pastry eating). You cannot find a better located apartment or a better view or hosts who are so thoughtful.
“The perfect Lisbon experience”
If you visit Lisbon and want to stay in the perfect location, you must stay in Casa Santana. The experience was wonderful. The apartment is clean and comfortable and we felt safe walking home even at midnight. The views are incredible and I was able to watch a Saturday night concert in the square below from the living room window while my jet-lagged family slept. Deb and Jordan have anticipated all guest needs--multiple fluffy towels, welcome goodies, a list of local restaurants (Everest is delicious!), tour and recreation recommendations, kids toys, and air conditioning! There are also local shops nearby if you also wish to use the well-appointed kitchen. Our visit included a quick orientation walking tour of the local area that pointed out tourist spots, restaurants and transportation that allowed us to wander the city with confidence. We even spent a wonderful afternoon at a local beach with their recommended surfing instructor! This was our first experience using a vacation apartment instead of a hotel and it has set a very high standard. We will definitely return to Lisbon and Casa Santana.
“Outstanding stay at Casa Santana”
My husband and I recently spent five wonderful days in Casa Santana, Jordan and Deb's delightful apartment overlooking the Rossio in Lisbon. Not only was the apartment immaculate, its location was the best in Lisbon -- steps from Metro, train, bus and trolley stops, in the middle of the bustle of the most charming part of the City, and walkable to scores of shops, restaurants and historic neighborhoods. Every detail of our stay had been anticipated, from the large notebook of walking tours and tourist brochures and information (which we used daily), Fado on the CD player, and piri-piri sauce in the fridge. Jordan, thank you for your introductory tour of the neighborhood, pointing out favorite eating spots and markets! Arriving in a new country after an overnight flight across the atlantic isn't getting any easier with age, but thanks to Jordan and Deb and Casa Santana, the transition was easy, relaxed and allowed us to explore the excitement of Lisbon without any anxiety at all! This clean, modern and well-equipped apartment in a historic building with beautiful views overlooking Rossio was the highlight of our trip to Portugal.
“Beautiful apartment to base Lisbon adventures from!”
Casa Santana was perfect - from it's amazing location (right in the middle of all of the action, whilst being in a quiet neighbourhood), stunning views (especially at sunset with the house martin swooping around!), comfy beds, and fully equipped kitchen (plus the lovely welcome food left for us - the Vino Verde set the tone for the rest of the holiday!). However what really set apart Casa Santana from other holiday lets was the amount of support and information provided by Jordon and Deb. The initial walking tour of the local neighbourhood was great (very insightful and really nice to have a few local restaurant recommendations etc when you arrive - makes for a very relaxing stay!) plus the organisation of other tours. Jordon organised a day of surfing and paddle boarding for us, which was excellant - very highly recommended! All in all they just made the stay very stress-free and relaxed! Add that on to the amazing apartment and it's a winning combination!
“Everything you need”
Stayed for four nights in June at Casa Santana. The apartment is centrally located, characterful, comfortable, spotlessly clean and with great views over the city. What really made our stay though was the thought that the owners had put into making sure that their guests had everything that they could possibly need in a holiday apartment. Jordan and Deb Kleber had clearly tried to make sure that all needs were catered for, down to a cool box for use if you wanted to head for the beach and use of a mobile phone for local calls, or to contact them if anything was needed. We were sent an excellent pre-arrival pack detailing just how to get to the apartment and covering the local area. We met the very friendly Jordan at the apartment on arrival, and he helpfully gave us a short tour of the immediate area, which included lots of local tips on getting round, what to see and do and where to eat. The apartment had plenty of guidebooks, free use of a laptop / internet access and also lots of kids games and books - very useful for our seven year old. It's clear that the owners actually care about your welfare and happiness during your stay. We've travelled round quite a bit and have rarely felt so immediately comfortable or so welcome in a hotel or apartment. Great place.
