Studio fully equipped for resting, having fun, soft meals and, with a beautiful garden.
We love to receive people but, respecting their space and privacy.
Can park the car at front door, bus stop on the corner and subway stations 10 min. walking.

The space

We envision "White Basement with Green Garden" (WBwGG) as a "waiting room " of the city of Porto, yes, because the city has so much to see and to live that, we don't want our visitors stuck in the house so, between each city tour, here will be the perfect refuge to rest and, why not, have fun with comfort and privacy.
If arriving by car, can park at the front door for free.
Once installed, you can reach downtown by bus, subway or, even walking for 20 minutes; the bus stop is around the corner and, any of the four subway stations are 10 minutes away.
Guests can walk away and return when and, as often as they want.
While in the house enjoy; read your own book or, pick one from our bookshelf, do it indoor or in the beautiful garden, if the weather allows; watch cable tv or a dvd movie or, even, rent one in the pay- per-view; wi-fi internet access is available all around and, also, one computer.
To accompany the leisure time, prepare a drink and a soft meal in the fully eqquiped bar, just the stove is not available because we do not want you to miss the experience in the fantastic restaurants all over the city.

If you prefer, we can arrange a picnic in the garden, will be different and, guaranteed, unforgettable.
To all this, we add our helpfulness until you want it but, if anything is missing, please ask, if you need any information, or tip, please ask or, if you want to talk and know about things around and our life style, it will be a pleasure , let's sit and chat .

Guest access

Our guests will have, for their own, a completely independent basement, sharing with us, just the access from the front door.
Remark: The ceiling has wood bars on each 1 meter and it's not vey tall; it will not be very comfortable to walk for persons taller than 1.80 mts.
The wide and beautiful garden is reached by the basement and, besides we also have acces to it, during guest stays, we will do our best to become invisible.
The bathroom is exclusively for the guests.
The sofa-bed is huge and very comfortable.
The bar is equipped with fridge, microwave, espresso&capppuccino machine, toaster and sink.
On tv, there dozens of cable channels, pay-per-view access and game console.
Wi-fi with internet access is coveres in the full area, including the garden.
Also available for use; foosball, drum, guitars, computer, books and magazines.

Interaction with guests

This project is based on our motivation to interact and well receive people, we just love it!
Also, Porto is a passion and, we will love direct you to find the best spots of the moment and visiting our rich patrimony.

Other things to note

We are permanently searching for partnerships, with people and businesses, to provide interesting services and, different kind, products that can be a plus to our guests experience.

House Rules
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check-in is anytime after 4PM
Check out by 12PM (noon)

The main rule here is common sense and, more than impose, we hope that our visitors share this same principle.
Based on that, we have no restrictions about schedules we just ask to do it with elegance.
We are fine with late hours talks and laughs, again, under the correct limits.
You can bring your pets (*); we've had already dogs, cats and parakeets and for a while, only the neighborhood cats used to cross the garden. Recently we were adopted by Fox the dog, that just followed my son in the street on his way home! We couldn't resist! Fox is very young, so she is still learning how to behave! :) and how to not destroy the garden!!!
Smoking is allowed, preferably in the garden for your own interest but, it's also allowed in the basement near the outside door.
Also allowed to sing during the shower, even followed in duet with drums or guitar; it's up to you.

(*) giraffes are not allowed due the small height of the basement ceiling

Must climb stairs

Alexandra and her father are the epitome of perfect hosts; she is so helpful, does everything and anything to make sure your visit is enjoyable and memorable and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and at home for the entire duration of your stay. The apartment is clean, tidy, has everything you need and is located in a nice quiet neighbourhood with proximity to local transport which gets you to the city centre in no time. This is our second time staying with Alexandra and her father and we will without a doubt continue to stay with them for all of our future visits.

This past weekend my girlfriend and I had an amazing stay in Porto with Alexandra, she goes above and beyond expectations as a host which made for a very enjoyable experience for us. Although our arrival was delayed and later in the night it was no problem at all and she was kind enough to pick us up from the train station and she also gave us a ride early the next morning to the other side of the river for a boat tour, it's things like this that are not at all common among Airbnb hosts. She and her father were so caring and thoughtful which made us feel very comfortable as if it were our own home, her communication was perfect and she was sure to suggest places to visit in the city whether a restaurant, a bar or a historical site. All in all we had an amazing weekend in Porto and it had a lot to do with the amazing apartment and Alexandra as a wonderful host, we will most certainly be coming back to stay with Alexandra in the future. Thank you for your amazing Hospitality! Connor&Rita

This is by far the best airbnb experience we have had on this trip. Alexandra is the sweetest woman you will ever meet. Her puppy is so sweet and spirited. We had a great time with these two. If your staying in Porto you must stay here.

Wow what can we say, what a neat space. It was our oasis away from the city. Alexandra was a phenomenal host with a great sense of humour. Nothing was too much bother and her local knowledge made our stay so much more special. We loved her dad, he kept us up to date with international sports including when our Kiwi won. We were sad to leave.

Alexandra deserve our warmest recommendations!! After a week in Lisbon with a very nice airbnb couple we didn't think it could get any better. But then we met Alexandra! She has the biggest heart and will do anything to make you feel at home and give you a life-time experience in Porto. Staying with Alexandra we didn't just explore Porto, we made a friend and learned about Portuguese culture. On top of all this her place and the backyard is really nice to relax, sunbath or enjoy breakfast. Thank you so much Alexandra! See you (hopefully) soon :)
