From the get go it was a pleasure to communicate with Isabel. With the reservation confirmation she provided extensive information on what to do, what to see and where to dine in her home town of Porto. She even offers a personal airport pick up service. On the way to the Apt we had a great conversation and based on that she made several restaurant suggestion that she texted to me after I got settled. Isabel also welcomed me with a decanter of the local Port and a few of the pastries Portugal is famous for.
The Apt is located on a quiet side street with amazing views overlooking the river. The old style building had been completely renovated and the Apt is tastefully furnished and decorated. The kitchen has everything you could need for an extended stay. The bathroom is spacious and has a walk in shower. Now let’s talk about “the bed” and the luxurious bedding. I never stayed at a holiday Apt before that had such a comfortable bed, that I never wanted to get up in the morning. There was plenty of storage for my suitcase and all my cloth.
The location of the Apt is just fantastic. Everything, like amazing restaurants, cafe’s, mini market, laundry mat, train station, the river, the famous bridge, churches, museums and the magical Harry Potter book shop are all in walking distance.
Every morning I received a text from Isabel with special events for that day, so I would not miss a thing this fabulous city has to offer. She really wants to make sure you have an enjoyable stay in Porto.
I also took advantage of the breakfast service a friend of Isabel’s provides. A picnic basket was delivered to my doorstep at the requested time filled with a fresh bread roll & a croissant, yogurt, ham & cheese, a boiled egg, hot coffee & milk, freshly squeezed orange juice and warm banana bread for dessert... I even had leftovers, that I snack med on in the afternoon.
Thank you Isabel for making my stay so enjoyable and I am looking to seeing you next year.....
I stayed in the Luis 1 for most of the month of October 2018. It's a lovely modern apartment with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Kitchen is fully outfitted; comfortable bed; the whole place was very clean. Wish I had used the terrace more, but it was almost always hot and sunny up there (not that I'm complaining about the beautiful weather). The neighborhood is a nice mix of residences and small shops, convenient to downtown and other neighborhoods which are fun to explore. The best resource of this property is its manager, Irene. She was always available and helpful, very gracious and good humored. I had an excellent stay.
