Gisela is an excellent Airbnb-host! All communication in advance was answered quickly, and she even stayed up to welcome us at our arrival after midnight! (We travelled with a 1 year old so the comments reflects this) The apartment is as the pictures shows; cosy and spacious, and without horrible carpet floors :) Gisela gave useful tips and answered all questions. She also got us a baby bed. There are two elevators taking you quickly to the 9th floor. The view is towards town and not the sea, but this is not a big thing as you will more likely visit the sea every day instead :) There is a bath tub, a washing machine, TV, good wifi, and a large fridge. The bed room is towards the inner yard and sheltered from the noice from the street. There was construction work going on at the opposite side of the street but this did not bother us - we all three had a nap in the middle of the day. The apartment is nicely situated really close to the metro line and the bus (which goes by the coast all the way to downtown Porto!), and there is a huge Lidl just on the opposite side of the roundabout. Would also recommend buying bread and fruit at the shops located in the same street. There are also great fishing restaurants in the parallel street towards the sea. You will smell the grilled fish in the evenings ;) The best is the short stroll to the beach - perfect! And you also have a nice cafe just where you arrive to the beach for beers and ice cream! Also with a little play ground for the kids. Swimming was great (water temperature like in Scandinavia = fresh), and the beach is so big that you always find a spot. The beach is great for families! We recommend strolling along the beach towards Porto: There is a nice beach walk built up all along the coast - easy with stroller! Also some nice beach spots along the way. There is also nice 2nd hand shops just in the street where the metro station is. It was easy taking the metro to the airport too. Matosinhos is a great place for families and people are really super friendly to kids! Every where there are kid chairs in the restaurants and people (even elderly!) stand up at the bus offering their seat. It is much calmer than Porto and less touristy. We had a great week and Gisela's apartment was perfect for our stay!

Lovely apartment and brilliant host. Booked me a taxi to and from the airport and responded to all my queries super quickly. She also took the time to go through a local map of the area with me very late at night when I arrived. I was here on business and it's so much better staying in an apartment than a hotel. Close to the beach, nice restaurants, supermarket and most things you need in the apartment which makes for a lighter suitcase! Will definitely stay here again on my next business trip. Thanks Gisela for being the perfect host!

We thoroughly enjoyed our few weeks in Matosinhos- the fish restaurants, the beach, bike rides along the coast, the 500 bus into Porto, and day trips to Douro valley, Guimaraes and Villa de Conde, and much more! The apartment was perfect for our needs - and we would recommend it.

Gisela's apartment was perfect. It was very close to the metro. The beach was approximately 2-3 minutes walking distance! Lots of amazing Portuguese seafood restaurants around. Matosihnos is a great place to be if you don't want to stay around the hustle and bustle of busy Porto (however, the metro is close and the center of Porto is only about a 25 minute train ride). Best of all was Gisela's hospitality! A truly ideal host! Highly recommend this listing.

I had a wonderful stay at Gisela's apartment! She was always super helpful and easy to get in contact if needed. The apartment is very spacious, nicely furnished and comfortable. It's also conveniently located, very close to the beach and local restaurants. Definitely recommend!

Nice place to be. Easy to catch the metro to go in to Porto and equally as enjoyable to stay in town and walk along the beaches. Loved having the market there to buy fresh fish and vegetables - came back to the apartment to cook. Everything you needed in the kitchen.

I spent one month in october at Giselas nice appartment and had a very pleasant time. Gisela makes it easy to feel home from the beginning: the apartment is very well equipped, there is everything you need, even a bottle of wine and a cupcake welcomed me. To stay in Matoshinos was a good decision; you have beautiful beaches just around the corner (to the north and to the south), the best fish restaurants in town, great beach bars with exceptional views, the supermarket (lidl) just across the street and good connections to the city center (by metro or by bus). Gisela was very helpful and kind, and I can warmly recommend her apartment.
