Large flat near Foz - Sea view & Parking
Floor No.2(with elevator)
|Address||Rua José Gomes da Silva, 4450-171 Matosinhos, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
The apartment has 4 bedrooms but the 3rd and 4th bedroom will only be open to guests if the group is more than 4 or 6 people respectively.
To avoid any misunderstanding, the bedrooms offer works like this:
1 to 4 guests = 2 bedrooms available
5 to 6 guests = 3 bedrooms available
7 to 8 guests = 4 bedrooms available
So, for example, if you are only 4 people but you want to use the 4 bedrooms, you will have to mention on your inquiry that you are 7 people because only this way you will have access to the 4 bedrooms.
Nevertheless, all the other areas (Kitchen, 2 bathrooms and the large Living Room) will be available in any option, and the apartment will be (in all cases) only for you because I will not book bedrooms to more than one group of guests at the same time. You will be the only group of people staying in the apartment.
A big kitchen and a 90 Square meters Living room where you can enjoy the Sea views and City Park's gardens. Clean bath towels, Linen and tableware are included and the kitchen if fully equipped with microwave, stove, oven, fridge, toaster and kettle and all you need to prepare your own meals.
Is included in the price, bed linen, bath towels and cleaning at end of stay. We do not supply Beach Towels. We do not supply cooking products such as salt, sugar, oil and others mainly for hygienic reasons. You can use the washing machine and dishwasher, but we do not provide the products for them.
Free Wireless internet (100 Mbps Download speed and 10 Mbps Upload speed). 40" wide LED Smart TV in the Living Room with Cable channels. Baby cot available for 5€ extra per night.
The apartment has an underground parking garage for 2 cars.

The bus stops at the door and line 500 will take you in 20 minutes into the historical center of Porto (near Ribeira) for € 1.85 per person. The bus trip to the historical center of Porto is very beautiful, first along the sea promenade and then along the Douro river.

Hemos tenido una estancia perfecta de 3 noches en el apartamento de Cristina y John!
Al llegar estaban esperándonos para enseñarnos el apartamento y darnos todas las recomendaciones necesarias para disfrutar al 100% de la ciudad (visitas indispensables, que bodegas visitar, restaurantes...).
El apartamento es precioso, tiene todo lo necesario para sentirse como en casa y se encuentra en pleno centro, en una calle peatonal con muchas tiendas y restaurantes. Aún así, por la noche es una calle tranquila, sin ruido!
Sin dudarlo, lo recomendaré si algún amigo va a ir a visitar la ciudad de Oporto!
Gracias por todo John y Cristina!

Die Unterkunft liegt sehr zentral. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten, der Bahnhof und die Busse sind leicht erreichbar.
Wir hatten die Unterkunft für 16 Tage gebucht. Leider wurde während unseres Aufenthalts das Nachbarhaus abgerissen, mit sehr erheblicher, ganztägiger Lärmbelästigung (8-17 Uhr). Auf der Straßenseite gegenüber befand sich ebenfalls eine Großbaustelle. Alle Arbeiten wurden vor unserer Anreise begonnen. Es wäre also unseres Erachtens fair gewesen, diese erheblichen Beeinträchtigungen des Aufenthalts vorab zu kommunizieren. Eine Reduktion des Mietpreises wurde weder von Wimdu noch von den Vermietern in Anschlag gebracht.
Hi Christina & John, we had a wonderful time in Porto und you made us happen the perfect start by informing us about practical things, must-seen-places and not-must-have-seen-places :). The apartment is really lovely and located in the heart of the city...and you can get everywhere by walking!! We woul like to come back here :)
Wow John & Christine - Christine & John . No matter how you turn it they are the best hosts of rentals we have had contact to so far.
Fair price , immediate response kind and precise .
Great location in the middle of the historic center of the beautiful city of Porto.
In the walking street, just across the house where Ernest Hemmingway lived for some time in the twenties,( now under renovation) I reach of all interesting locations within 1 km reach.
No charge for late arrival or a little delayed checkout and no extra fee for cleaning .
The building is beautiful and the apartment is a charm. A dream of a vacation rental.
And with the delicious odour from the cafe' just below where you can have waffles and coffee and ice ☕️
We had one of our best vacations in this fell good rental ⛪️
Best regards. Jie , Kurt , Thomas & Sofie
A casa é pequena e pouco pratica para um casal com duas crianças.
A casa tem pouca iluminação natural, julgo que está feita mais para o verão e não para quando os dias estão frios e nublados
A localização é boa, pois fica dentro do aldeamento que tem áreas verdes para as crianças brincarem e fica muito perto da praia.
Most beautiful appartment in Porto! In the middle of the town with everything you need. Cristina, you should mention that there is a hairdryer :-).
Great appartment in a central location!
We spent three days with our baby a year and a half in this apartment.
We arrived about an hour and a half later than expected due to a flight delay and Cristina & John very kindly waited for us to give us the keys accompanied by a glass of port wine "thank you very much !!". They provided maps and a dossier with areas of interest (restaurants, wineries, supermarkets ...) and all this is appreciated when you arrive in a new city.
Very nice and clean apartment with everything you need, though perhaps a television to distract the small at times would have been nice.
Regarding location, just say it's excellent! (Close to everything) and only downside say that just below a bar / restaurant that puts music speaker on the street, which made our first night we could not sleep until 00:00 because of a tour group extremely elated, but our baby and found out !!!!. The other days the music was bearable.
Pasamos tres días con nuestro bebe de un año y medio en este apartamento.
Llegamos cerca de una hora y media más tarde de lo previsto por culpa de un retraso en el vuelo y Cristina & John nos esperaron muy amablemente para darnos las llaves acompañado de una copita de vino de oporto " muchas gracias!!". Nos facilitaron mapas y un dossier con zonas de interés ( restaurantes ,bodegas, supermercados...) y todo esto se agradece cuando llegas a una ciudad nueva.
El apartamento muy bonito y limpio con todo lo necesario, aunque quizás una televisión para distraer al pequeño en algunos momentos hubiera estado bien.
Respecto a la ubicación, sólo decir que es excelente! ( cerca de TODO) como única pega decir que justo debajo hay un bar/restaurante que pone música con altavoz en la calle, cosa que hizo que nuestra primera noche no pudiéramos conciliar el sueño hasta las 00:00 por culpa de un grupo de turistas extremadamente eufóricos, aunque nuestro bebé ni se enteró!!!!. El resto de días la música era soportable.
it was a very nice holiday in this nice, clean flat, with a great view to the cathedral, especially in the night. 5 minutes to the river and the center, 2 minutes to the bus to the beach. the hosts are very sympatic and helpful. we would book it again. thank you very much!!
Warm, quite charming hosts. Home conveniently located close to attractions. The entire apartment was adequate. We went at a time when the temperature was very hot, which is somewhat impede our comfort. Endoit recommended. Sorry for the fans of TV or radio ...
Accueil chaleureux, hôtes tout a fait charmants. Logis bien situé à proximité des sites à visiter. L'appartement tout a fait convenable. Nous sommes allés à un moment où la température était très chaude, ce qui a nuit quelque peu à notre confort. Endoit recommandable. Désolé pour les amateurs de TV ou de radio...
