Maria was the best Host we had during this holiday in Portugal. We regret having only booked two nights with her. She is a lovely, caring, attentive lady with a warm heart wanting to go that extra mile to keep her guests happy and comfortable.
Her communication was prompt and in detail. She picked us up from the Coach station on our return from Fatima and I had to force the payment on her in appreciation.
She has a very clean and tidy home, the bathroom/toilet was spot on. Her hospitality is amazing, she makes you feel like at home and she says 'my home is your home during your stay' and yes she means it.
She is also an excellent Tour Guide with a very good knowledge of Touristic locations. She drove us around on both days and took us to amazing locations. Her charges are very, very reasonable and much less than the cheapest Taxi company charge.
She's so full of fun and laughter, we enjoyed every minute spent with her and felt so sad to say goodbye. I wish to recommend her to any reasonably thinking guest since she should be remunerated fairly for her services.
We will be definitely staying with Maria on our next trip to Lisbon - 'the Lady with a heart of gold'.
Staying with Maria is a fantastic choice - she's one of the kindest people, her home is lovely and she goes all out to help you learn about Portuguese culture and food. While Loures is a little further out of Lisbon, there are buses & metros (only 20 minutes to the centre) and Maria actually drove us into town every day, purely out of kindness. She also gives personal tours all over the coast and Lisbon's city! She makes you feel very at home and staying with her is by far the best decision we made when coming to Lisbon - and we've made a great friend along the way!
Maria was friendly and willing to take you to the metro as her place it’s outside Lisbon and far away from the station. Unfortunately for me her house was not clean and she only prepared for me the breakfast on the first day as I suggested I wanted something much healthier like porridge which is inexpensive so she just ignored my request and I did have to do it myself for the rest of my stay. The room was ok but bathroom doesn’t have window and is in a sorry state. Fair enough she will take on trips outside Lisbon but she doesn’t state how much she wants you to pay for then so she gave the bill at the end and of course I was shocked by how expensive it was!! I cannot recomend her place as it’s just not up to scratch.
She is one of the happiest women I have ever met and is cheerfully showing places around. I see her as my Aunty and so I will visit her often again!
Lots of cheers and love for her !
Maria. Is absolutely delightful.She has a great sense of humor and is very knowledgeable about the country. She will take you to places you would never see. Maria treats you family......maybe better!
Maria de Lourdes, is a great, beautiful, kind, and nice person!
She is very enthusiastic, and very helpful.
I appreciate very much all the efforts she did to may feel confortable and happy at her home.
The place where she lives, is a pleasant enviroment.
From the bottom of my heart I tell you: THANK YOU VERY MUCH for all your help and love. It was very nice to meet you, and I feel now that we are going to be friends for live! God bless you! Mary
Maria was sent from heaven to accommodate her guests. I had a wonderful three-day stay with her this week and she truly is honest when she says `My home is your home`. Her English is excellent. I will return to her home before I leave Portugal. Most highly recommended for a homestay, no question.
The host cancelled the booking.
Maria such a nice welcoming person. She made you feel like you are at your own house. She will guide you and advice you where to go. However, just little disappointment by the end as Maria used to offer to drive us near by places as she is quite far from underground, therefore she asked money for her petrol by last day when we run out from every penny!!
Très bon accueil, Maria est très gentille et nous accompagne en voiture découvrir des lieux magnifiques.
