I’ve just renewed this amazing penthouse with all my love and care. I hope you will love it as much as I do!
Directly at the centre of Espinho, just a few minutes walking distance to the beach and to the train station, from where you can directly reach the historical centre of Porto in about 20 minutes.
7 km wood path along the sea, surf, horses, restaurants, planetarium, cinema, fishermen village, Espinho is the ideal basis for your stay in the Porto area, you will never get bored there.

The space

I finished renovating this penthouse in June 2016.
In addition to being an extremely cosy, charming and luxurious appartment, it provides you all possible comfort for your holiday: high quality sheets, matrasses and pillows (available in different types to suite your personal tastes), electric roller, kitchen appliances (dishwasher, juice maker, coffee machine, mixer, toaster,..), washing machine, closet and home cinema with access to cable TV (appx. 140 channels available).

Very well thermically isolated, the appartment benefits of heating on the floor, providing a very comfortable feeling during the short winter season of Espinho.

The highlight of this place is a panoramic view to the sea (west side), with sunset view.
Having your dinner there feels just like a dream. The feeling will be as pleasant when the first thing you see when you wake up is the sea from your bed...
I hope you will fall in love with it as I did!

Guest access

You will have private access to the whole appartement, which includes bathroom, one bedroom with a double bed, living room, kitchen, balcony.
The sofa in the living room is a bed sofa, which enables two more people to sleep there.
In total, 4 people can stay in this appartment. You could also bring a baby bed if you want, but it is not provided by me.
This is also a pet friendly place. Having myself a wonderful dog, I will be happy to welcome your own pet.

Interaction with guests

You can contact me at any moment during your stay, I will be more than happy to help you remotely by phone or SMS. If necessary, I can send an assistant to the apartment to help you personally during your stay.

On check in, you can either do it on your own (self check-in / default option), by installing an application on your mobile phone to open the doors or I can send an assistant to personally welcome you (traditional check-in / I kindly request you to tell me in advance in case you prefer this option). After booking the apartment, you will receive an e-mail with further information/instructions.

Other things to note

I'd like to inform you that I've tried to rebuild this apartment as eco-friendly as possible in an effort to save valuable resources from the planet:
(1) water flowing on the bathroom's washbasin has a special filter to reduce the flow to the minimum possible. This only applies to the washbasin. Water runs normally on the shower and on the kitchen.
(2) I did not install Air Conditioned on purpose. Instead I've equipped the apartment with intelligent double glasses, that adjust their micro particules to the weather conditions. In very hot days, I would recommend, though, to close the blind shutters when leaving the apartment during the afternoon so as to have a pleasant temperature on your way back in.

Great apartment at the top of Espinho's pedestrian area. The apartment could be described as a modern techno house. Everything you might want is available, from the well kitted out kitchen (incl. dishwasher and wash machine) to the entertainment package (projector for tv and soundbars to play your music). The beach is only a 5-10min walk away. A small supermarket is around the corner or you can walk to the bigger ones (lidl, continental). They are approximately 1km away. Also, make sure to try some of Ricardo's recommendations. You will get all required information once you booked.

Ricardos apartment is absolutely stunning and we immediately fell in love with the apartment, when we first stepped through the door and saw the stunning view . Ricardo designed the apartment with much love and passion for details. It is equipped with literally everything you need, it is very comfortable, super clean, modern, new, just as in the photos. It is very central, so that you can easily walk to restaurants, bakerys, shops, supermarkets, train station and the beach of course. We got a lot of helpful tips and the communication was very good and quick and very friendly and welcoming. For us it was a perfect stay. Highly recommended!

What a great place and host. Ricardo made me feel very welcome and his place is just superb!! The flat has been recently renovated to very high standards. The sea view is wonderful and the balcony is perfect to enjoy a beer or two on a sunny day. The flat has everything you need and the WiFi is very fast. The location is perfect, within a walking distance to the beach and also to the train station and many restaurants and bars. I loved this place and will definitely stay again next time I visit Espinho!!

A so beautifully decorated penthouse, absolutely tidy and clean with an amazing view of the seaside. We felt so confortable that it was hard to go out. Communication with Ricardo was very efficient and he always answered promptly. We wish we could have stayed longer. And I would definetely return to his flat and reccomend it highly.

I love simple things of life, like enjoying a beautiful sunset by the beach, dinner with friends, traveling.

Airbnb gives me the opportunity to meet interesting people, each one with a different story, each one with someone new to teach me. I'm so lucky and grateful to have such a chance.
