I had really a pleasure time staying in Maria house. The place is very nice, very clean and orderly. I can easily sleep well because the bed was confortably clean and smells good. I was staying in the other room at that time, which I believe it was room of Maria's son who no longer stay there. Nonetheless, any room you'll stay in the flat, doesn't matter which one, they are all clean, tidy and nicely design. Maria introduce me to all of the room in there, which I found it really nice. I was instantly feel at home when I arrive. Not only because the rooms was all comfortably, but also Maria was really treat me like I'm a part of the family. She was really friendly and welcoming personality. She welcome me with the friendliest smile and super sincere warm hug, although I arrive a bit late around 22.00-23.00 at night. She also show me the map of Porto and the best places to visit. For me,I was so lucky because at first I didn't have any preference of places to go in Porto, but Maria give me a good idea.
In the room was many of flyers for tourist reference. So although I'm staying with locals but at this point I feel like I was stay in five star hotel which provided all the information for its guest.
I don't have anything to complaint, it was the best airbnb experience in my life. I just a bit scared of Baltazar, a smart friendly dog, because I'm naturally don't really like any pet. But it lives only in one particular room, so I don't have to worry inside the house.
There was also Emanuella who keep in touch with me through online message. She was really good provided me step by step how to get to the place from the airport. It was really clear direction, but because there are much walking distance so I suggest it easier to use also GPS on the phone. The location is fine, it's not in the very centre area of the city but I quite close and easy access of metro. There also a nice local coffee shop downstairs, so you can have a little breakfast there before you start exploring the city. All in all I'm very recommend this place to stay in Porto.
