Located in Matosinhos, Porto District, in a unique and pleasant area providing all the conditions for a good holiday. It is 5 min walk to the beach. The area is known for the best fish and seafood restaurants you can get. Around the house you have supermarkets, bakeries, about everything you need. Close to Porto, you have either a direct bus or metro to downtown, about 20 min. 15 minute taxi trip from the airport.
“One of the best placed I have stayed at with Airbnb, perfect for 1-2 people. Mário is super friendly, very fast to reply and accommodating to needs (e.g. he let me take my small dog with me and allowed for a late check-out too). The space he designed is fabulous and even better than you see on the photos. Beautiful and well thought through, it has a big comfortable bed, a fun and modern kitchen and a cool beach style in a fully renovated old style house with lots of character. As I stayed in February and it was pretty chilly the previous days I was worried about heating, but he has two mobile heaters in each room which kept it cozy at night. Details are designed for travelers in mind, for example there are multiple plugs on the bedside (and in the apartment in general). The shower is nothing short of amazing with stone walls and natural flooring and a rain shower. I also love how sunny and bright it was all day long, without getting hot. Also Mário set up to keep out the sun if you wish by installing clever double curtains, the outer one being block-out curtains so you can completely darken it at night. The location is walking distance 10 mins from the sandy beach and in the midst of vibrant seafood cafes and any store you could need all around. Surprisingly, despite the busyness of the area, it gets very quiet and peaceful at night. Had no issues to get amazing sleep. Mário has also put together a wonderful set of recos, which I recommend to check out. Loved my time there and grateful for a wonderful experience!”

“We have long been hesitating to book a 2 weeks family vacation in Portugal either via Airbnb or via hotel sites. After quite an extensive online research, we have found João’s beach house. He had a ton of very good reviews and we decided to go for it. Now at the end of our stay, we can say that this has been the best experience so far. I travel regularly for my job and to keep the companies costs in check, I always book Airbnb’s. I never had such a good host as João before. Some examples of his support: 1 he came to get us at the airport (and back) 2 I forgot my charger at home and he has lent me his spare one 3 he gave really good tips about the surroundings and restaurants 4 he had some wine food en fresh fruits for us upon arrival 5 a cleaning lady came 2 times during our stay to make the apartment immaculate (all included in the price) His beach house is just in front of the beach and offers wonderful views on the ocean. Leça da Palmeira is not too touristy compared to the other beaches in the vicinity. The local food and the people were fantastic and so friendly. We will definitely revisit João place soon. As I have said, I love the location, the food, the apartment and the hospitality that João offered so freely.”

“I'd like to thank Raquel for such great hospitality. She is a very charming hostess and just a very kind woman. Her breakfasts were perfect, we even did not expect for such an option. It was very graciously. Raquel's home is perfectly clean. The room we've stayed in is equipped with a separate bathroom. It is very convenient. As for Matosinhos, it is a good location to explore north of Portugal. The city is connected with Porto by light rail. The metro station is just a few minutes from Raquel's house. You can easily travel to Porto, its airport and back. Also, Matosinhos has a very long and nice beach to enjoy sunsets as well as a lot of fish restaurants. So, I strongly recommend visiting Matosinhos and staying at Raquel's home!”
