    Fantastic accommodations in the heart of Porto

    We started off with a terrific discussion on Porto with OUTSTANDING recommendations. She ended by personally showing us to our room, and explaining how to use the stovetop and even the coffee. The room and location were fabulous, close to everything, yet super quiet. Our accommodations made our vacation very enjoyable.

    Extremely helpful staff who provided a map with recommended sights and restaurants. The restaurants were fantastic and we appreciated the tips immensely. The location was perfect! We would stay here again but in a unit with no residents above us as footsteps were quite loud and caused sleepless nights. Laundry facilities around the corner worked well for us.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The location of the property was excellent. The hosts were extremely helpful. We were given a briefing at check-in pointing out sites of interest as well as dining and shopping highlights, and given a lot of good information about the city. This really helped us make the most of our time in Porto. The hosts were also very responsive to any requests and questions. The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable, and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay there very much and would highly recommend In Situ Living.

    The property has everything you need - beautiful, quiet quarters, a separate kitchen, outside grilling area, pool, hot tub, tennis court! The view is stunning, and the service was awesome. I highly recommend a stay and it would work well for large group stays as well.
