Guestbook comments from the manager

The owners were extremely nice and very communicative prior to departure. Free pick-up from airport was great. Upon arrival Maria gave us cheese, wine and bread. Views of city are unparalled. Small grocery and coffee/pastry shop on first floor is very convenient. Great restaurants short walk away. Castle, museums, and main train station within walking distance. Apartment is roomy, clean and very well decorated. Free Wi-Fi in aparment was convenient.

A special stay in a superbly located, welcoming apartment

  • 5 of 5

As first time visitors to Lisbon we had no idea about which neighborhood locations or accommodation options would be best, and had to rely on research, reviews and given descriptions of properties. We are so glad that we chose to stay at this apartment of Nuno's.

Throughout the enquiry, booking and arrival process, Nuno was helpful, informative and friendly. Meeting him at the apartment (after being met at the airport by a driver and comfortable car) he immediately made us feel welcome and at home.

The apartment was just as described, clean, spacious and well-equipped with everything to ensure a trouble-free stay, and a bottle of wine, accompanied by a tray of ham, cheese and bread laid out in the living-room were a welcome touch.

Of course the sight of the atmospheric and wide-reaching views from the windows were stunning and very special. We found the location of the apartment, nestled in a narrow, cobbled street in a safe, secure and relatively quiet neighborhood, high above the surrounding streets and hills, made us feel a part of the old city. Everything about the location was wonderful, even though we did struggle some evenings after full days of sight-seeing facing the stairs up to the third floor, but the rewards at the top were well worth it. We loved being able to walk everywhere, with the Castelo Elevator not far down the road, and both the #12 and #28 trams trundling by up the hill at the end of the street - if you could squeeze on and get a spot down at the Square! We didn't end up going on the #28 at all as it was always too packed, but caught the #12 just over the hill going down to the Miradoura Santa Luzia.

Nuno ensured that we had a wealth of information and resources, and even accompanied us personally to a small, family-run restaurant for dinner after our arrival on our first evening, when we had no idea of where we were, where to go or how to get there. His interest and care about where to celebrate my birthday on what turned out to be on a National Holiday in Lisbon, led to a superb restaurant recommendation.

It was such a pleasure to encounter a host who cared so much about their guest's welfare and welcome.

Best apartment, best owner, best vacation rental experience ever!

  • 5 of 5

I really can not say enough good things about our experience staying at Nuno's apartment in Lisbon. From the very beginning, communication with Nuno was excellent. He made sure to get our flight information and a taxi was waiting for us when we arrived in Lisbon. He met us at the apartment and carried our luggage up the four flights of stairs to the apartment. The apartment is beautiful, especially the views from all the windows, both overlooking Lisbon out the front and side windows and up to the castle out the windows at the back of the apartment, they are all stunning!

We have rented several apartments both in Europe and the USA, including; Paris, Barcelona, Avignon& Cassis and have had mostly good experiences but our experience with Nuno tops them all. We loved the location of the apartment. Everything you needed is within walking distance including fabulous restaurants and the wonderful Alfama district or you can take an elevator ride down to the local grocery store.

After we realized we had made a mistake with the dates of our original booking of an apartment in Porto, Nuno found and secured a rental of an apartment to cover the day we were without lodging.

We fell in love with Lisbon, we fell in Love with the Portuguese people and we fell in love with Nuno's apartment! We even came to enjoy the healthy challenge of four flights up to the apartment, even after a day touring Lisbon. Although the journey from California to Portugal is a long one, we are hopeful that we can return some day soon and we hope that Nuno's apartment will be available.

Fulfilled all our requirements

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to stay somewhere central but quiet, with a view and a sunny balcony and this apartment had it all. It's quite sparsely furnished but has everything you need and is comfortable- there's even plenty of heaters for cool evenings and mornings. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped and the shower is OK. There is a well stocked, busy supermarket 10 minutes away. The owner, Nuno, is an excellent host, as other reviews have said, from providing a lovely taxi from the airport to replacing the freezer immediately it was found not to be working. Not to forget lots of advice and recommendations. The only downside is the 75 winding stairs up to the apartment- worth it for the views, but it did persuade us to eat in more than we intended. But then how many restaurants would have such a stunning panorama from the table!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Andrew, it was my first 4 stars review, to offer a excellent service help me, how can I improve to get from you a 5 stars review? Because I don't know how... I pick you up at the train station 9:30pm, I carried your luggage 4 floors without elevator, I provide local guides, free internet to use outside (mobile router), I spend 30 minutes explain to you how to explore the city, when I went home, fresh bread, cheese, custard and a bottle of wine was on the table for you. The apartment have everything you need. I send you a full email with tips about restaurants, places to visit and a all day plan to visit Sintra. At the you call me to provide a taxi for you and I done. What was my mistake? How can I improve? Should I offer you the transfer to the train to? Best regards Nuno Catarino

Far exceeded my already good expectations

  • 5 of 5

I heartily recommend this beautifully situated, central space at the foot of the castle. Nuno was an extraordinary host. We were absolutely delighted with his great attention to detail and extra effort compared with other providers of this sort of accommodation. He was very accessible via WhatsApp whenever we had a question and was a fountain of information on places to visit and dine. It was like travelling with a local next to you the whole trip. He's a lovely man and took great pride in ensuring our comfort starting with the much appreciated pick up at the airport. The place itself is bright, clean, spacious and has exceptional views all around. The two small terraces were delightful and one of the reasons I chose the place. How nice to end a day's sight-seeing with a bottle of port, a fine cigar and a spectacular private view . Thank you Nuno!!! I miss it already!!

An amazing location and a solicitous host who wants your stay to be perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Lisbon in the past but never have we had a host who was so generous with his time and was so thoughtful and communicative. The apartment had everything we needed and Nuno welcomed us with Portuguese pastries and a wonderful wine.

Upon entering the apartment, you will be quite taken with the views from the windows. They are very dramatic. The back balcony off the kitchen offers a wonderful outdoor space as well as a view of the castle above.

When investigating the property and looking at the map, I was worried the location wasn't ideal but, as it turned out, it was in the best location possible. There was easy access to all parts of Lisbon that you would want to see. If you are tired of walking up and down hills, it is very near the public elevators that will take you up to the apartment near the castle and down to the base of the Alfama.

If you want to find a place in the neighborhood to eat, Nuno made wonderful recommendations to us. They were small, family-owned restaurants frequented by the locals and the working class. We actually had our best food in Lisbon by taking our host's recommendations.

We will be coming back to Lisbon and, yes, we will make contact with Nuno, again.
