If you're the kind of traveler that loves to be at the heart of a city, look no further. Porto is at your doorstep here - you'll love being able to walk out the door and find everything within walking distance or a cheap tram ride away.
We love our place and have decorated it with care and lots of personal touches. And we are the sole owners and caretakers, so we make sure your stay will be managed by us, in the true spirit of AirBnB!
Have a look and come join us for a glass of Port wine!

The space

This classic, 200-year-old flat was the birthplace in 1875 of Portuguese author Joaquim Antunes Leitão, and has protected status. It has 2 bedrooms and can house 4 people comfortably as it has a little over 100 sq. meters. It’s in a superb, central location, which is perfect if you want to stay in the heart of Porto. Just minutes away from the best shopping areas, restaurants, monuments, buses, trams and metro, this flat is particularly suited for people who like to be at the center of city life. You’ll be within walking distance of lively bars, cafes and eateries to join in with the locals as well as visitors from around the world! We don’t have any TVs or other entertainment in the place because there is so much else to do just out the door! We are in a lively part of town so we have double-glazed windows throughout the flat to insure maximum comfort for our guests, but some street noise is unavoidable.
Important: Please note that the listed price is for 1 or 2 people using one bedroom (each bedroom has one queen-sized bed). If 2 people come and they each want their own bedroom, we will charge an additional 20 euros for extra linen cleaning charges to be paid upon arrival.

Guest access

The entire flat is at your disposal – enjoy its funky, personalized décor and treat it with loving care!

Interaction with guests

We really love our city and all it has to offer and will be happy to share our local knowledge with you – whether you're looking for a great place to eat fresh grilled fish or a stroll along the beachfront, we can help point you in the right direction.

This is a truly old world apartment in the heart of the city, beautifully decorated and appointed with all the comforts of a modern hotel. The hosts are warm and welcoming and spare no attention to detail. Indoors, the high-end upgrades to bathroom and kitchen are a plus and the luxurious, large bedroom with 4-poster bed is a special feature. Winter travellers will love the indoor stove and everyone will like the floor to ceiling windows opening to Juliette balconies throughout. Outdoors, you will be close to great bars and restaurants as well as destinations including the Sao Bento train station and the bridge to Villa Nova de Gaia. Highly recommended!

Very spacious, full of natural light, well located apartment. You can walk to almost everywhere in the city from this location. There is an abundance of restaurants very near by. The cleanliness of this apartment surpasses all levels we have experienced with airbnb so far. The attention to detail of these hosts is surprising. Kurt checked us in, he was there when we arrived and although it was late in the afternoon, never looked at his watch and was prepared with a lot of information and ready to answer all our questions. The communication with Kurt is very easy, whether via email or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), he responds quickly. We had a little issue with the drain in the shower, within minutes Kurt arrived with tools and equipment to successfully remedy the problem. Very much appreciated. We definitely highly recommend a stay in Kurt's apartment. It's very worth it!

Teresa welcomed us earlier to accommodate our early arrival. She was great and made us feel at home as soon as we got there. Kurt and Teresa were great to coordinate with and we enjoyed our stay very much. It was classic, cozy, and very memorable. Would highly recommend! Thanks for an amazing stay! :)

We absolutely fell in love with Kurt and Teresa's apartment. It is filled with Old-World charm, but updated and modern. The pictures really give a good sense of how charming it is. The location could not be better, within walking distance of the older part of town, and very close to numerous restaurants, neighborhood bars, tapas places, etc. Kurt was a wonderful host. He met us at the apartment, offered us a good run-down of the neighbourhood and places to visit, over a glass of port wine. Some of the previous reviews mentioned noises at night. It appears that there used to be a dance club nearby, but it has now closed. We did not have any problem with noise - only the normal street noise of the city. We highly recommend.
