Style Notes

City chic. Crisp, cool and contemporary, this apartment has been decorated with a Portuguese flair for colour. Neutral, modern backdrops show off the rich forest greens, orange and yellows. Wooden flooring and taupe walls throughout give a practical, modern vibe. We love the tropical jungle backdrop in the living space, the gorgeous petrol blue and white geometric tiles in the bathroom and the cute mural, painted by Costah, one of Porto’s most famous street artists, in the decked, bijou garden.

We were born and raised in Porto and we are really lucky to live in this charming city. We love travelling anywhere really, meeting people from all over the world, exploring different places and good food. As parents of two children, we also think that travelling and being hosts is a great opportunity to open our kids horizons. Our girl is 19 and our boy 15, both of them love to hang out with their friends, that's just their favourite thing! So, pandemic time has not been easy for them, but then again, will surely make them more resilient. We have 2 beautiful apartments that our kids love, and all kids that have visited love too, and that's why we think it would be a good match to Kid & Coe.

This apartment was the perfect home base for our exploration of Porto! The location was perfect and within walking distance to everything. Great restaurants nearby. Very comfortable for our family of 4 and we loved the patio!

The apartment is small but absolutely great. we were a couple with 2 girls ages 9 and 11 They were sleeping in the sofa bed. We loved the apartment. everything needed is there and Teresa is just a wonderful host. While we did not get a chance to meet her since she was out of town she was available for anything we needed, provided us with great information and recommendation and was just an amazing host. The location of the apartment is just perfect, 2 minutes walk and you are on the best restaurant street in Porto both for breakfast and for dinner. a few more minutes and you can get to any place you want in the center of the city. I would definitely recommend this for any couple or small family going to Porto

Our stay in Teresa'a apartment was fantastic! The apartment itself was lovely and Teresa's attention to detail and extra touches made us feel at home during our stay in Porto. Teresa met us to check in and had a freshly baked cake which was delicious! As soon as we booked the apartment she contacted us with recommendations for places to eat, things to see and do and throughout our stay was very responsive to any questions we had. She also arranged for breakfast to be delivered to the apartment daily which was very convenient as we were travelling with young children. I couldn't recommend this apartment more highly.

Teresa's place was nothing short of amazing! She also had lovely port wine and home made cake for us on arrival and took the time to get to know us and make us feel welcome in lovely porto. If you are headed to Porto you should without a doubt stay in this lovely place whether you have children or not. :) Will definitely stay again!
