Great stay in Porto
We loved staying in the apartment. The location was great and it had everything we needed. David and Anthony were very helpful with restaurant suggestions and other info.
Andrew, us3 night trip
Shining View, Porto
Very enjoyable stay with fabulous recommendations about restaurants and sightseeing spots. The only slightly worrying thing is that it took us a while to warm up the room.

Wonderful apartment near Porto waterfront!
David is a wonderful host! He met us at the apartment, went over the map and made recommendations on where to eat and even which port wine cave to visit. Wish we had more time... The apt is perfect, great views, fast internet.... Private with full kitchen. The building even has a small elevator. We would definitely stay here again. Walking distance to train station and waterfront.... We walked everywhere very convenient.

Great family room, great service, great price!
Clean, new, and comfortable! David and Antonio were helpful from reservation through check-out, with great restaurant recommendations and tips. Definitely use the airport shuttle they offer...worth every penny!

The view of the river was spectacular! The owner/ manager was very informative and hospitable. The location was just perfect. If I ever go back to Porto , I would stay in the same place. Thank you David!
