“Great view of Porto & close to sights restaurants & bars”

Owner Pedro collected us from airport and was very helpfull telling us about Porto. Great views overlooking Ribera district which is only a short walk away over the river. This side of the river has the views and close to all sights. Porto is full of hills so bring your walking shoes but there is a bus stop across the road from the apartments which brings you in to the centre of Porto. Make sure you walk over the railway bridge over the river as it has great views. Apartment is clean and a good size so good for friends or a family.

“Great apartment - what you see is what you get”

We were very happy with this vacation rental! Pedro, the host and landlord was extremely helpful and very welcoming. The pick up from the train station was a nice perk! The view in this apartment was amazing. I'm glad we stayed in Gaia instead of Porto, because you can see all of Porto out the window! It's quieter as well, but you can be right in the middle in the action in only a few minutes walk. Very clean and convenient, nice kitchen with utensils. Only a few minutes walk to the Metro, grocery store and main street. We really felt like we were staying in a local neighborhood vs a hotel which was great. Would come back here again if I'm visiting Porto!

We stayed in Pedro's apartment for 4 nights and were sorry we were not staying longer. The view from the apartment is something to behold - all the magic and charm oozing through the windows of the wonderfully located, spacious accommodation. Pedro met us at the bus and took us to the train on our departure day. A charming host with a wealth of local knowledge which he so generously shared with us. We felt like we had met an old friend! Highly recommended!

“You wont regret renting this apartment in Porto”
Reviewed 15 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

people found this review helpful

We stayed at Pedro’s River Place apartment in September 2012. We had a wonderful holiday there and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Pedro as a host, the River Place as a base and Porto as a holiday destination in which to relax, walk, explore and enjoy the sunshine and the history.

Location – The apartment is located at a relaxed stroll of perhaps 200 metres from the Dom Luis bridge which is central to the operation of the city. The slightly elevated position offers sensational views overlooking the port cellars and the Ribeira. From dawn to dusk the light casts different shadows across the panorama. In the evening the twinkle of city lights merges with the after dusk twilight. It’s very beautiful to observe.
From the apartment there is easy access to a vast array of port cellars, Dom Luis and the other bridges, Ribeira, Metro, cafes, bars, river bank strolls, parks.

View – Stunning, across terracotta roof tops of port cellars on the banks of the Douro to Ribeira north side with Porto towering above. Feral cat family comically playing out a life of sleeping, resting and relaxing on roof tops opposite.

Facilities – the apartment is fully equipped: Satellite TV, fast Wifi (20Mbps!), sleeps 5 easily, quaintly furnished in local style, no IKEA.

Kitchen - large and fully equipped, electric hob, fridge, micro wave oven

Comfort – very comfy, cool even without AC, ample soft seating, ample dining facilities. Bright, airy atmosphere.

Noise – very little intrusion.
Security – we had no issues at the apartment or anywhere in Porto.
The only negative comment we can think of is that the shower head was a bit eccentric but it was no big deal. I’m sure Pedro will replace it after reading this.

We consider the apartment good value for money.

Owner – very helpful and reliable. Pedro was waiting for us on arrival at the airport, welcomed us to the apartment with a decanter of port and a comprehensive knowledge of the city, and took us back to the airport for our departure flight. A very genial and helpful host.

We hope to return to the apartment and unhesitatingly recommend it.
