About Paul & Vanessa Smith
Our motto is 'live, laugh, travel!' Hi, we are Paul & Vanessa, a married couple living in Porto, Portugal. Travelling is our passion. Together we have visited 38 countries. The only continent we haven't visited yet is Antarctica - maybe one day! We believe our experiences staying in many rental properties around the world allows us to provide our guests with an excellent vacation experience in our beautiful apartment.
Paul & Vanessa Smith purchased this Studio in 2017
Why Paul & Vanessa Smith chose Vila Nova de Gaia
We are unique in Porto. We are one of only a few private properties that have a private terrace (bigger than a balcony) on the Southern side of the River Douro which offers the most beautiful panoramic view of Porto. You will not regret booking our beautiful Studio apartment with private terrace. It will be an experience you will never forget!
What makes this Studio unique
The views from the private terrace are breathtaking! We offer THE BEST view of Porto! We will give you a detailed map with all of our recommendations in the city including some secret places not written in the guide books! We are available 24/7 to ensure your stay is perfect!
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Amazing place. Don’t think twice. Book. Best view we had while there. Paul and Vanessa are amazing hosts. Wanted to hang out with them. Maybe next time !
A real GEM!
The title “best view of Porto” is actually ABSOLUTELY TRUE!!! My wife and I have had the chance to travel extensively in our lives and we stayed in many VRBO apartments. This one is absolutely fantastic! Not only are the views spectacular but the studio itself is just perfect: comfortable bed, nice bathroom with very hot water (thanks for the warning!) - impeccably clean unit and above all- extremely gracious hosts who gave us perfect directions to the studio from the airport and were there when we arrived- welcoming us with their great smiles and tons of tips to help us enjoy our stay in Porto (Paul and Vanessa actually live on the main floor of the building-which has no views🙁!... ). We spent a LOT of time on the balcony at different times of the day and evening just admiring the changing colours and marvelling on how beautiful the skyline of PORTO is (the pictures actually DO NOT do justice to the “AWE” moments that we have experienced...). If we could, we would give 6* to this place! Paul and Vanessa: you have a little gem! Thank you for allowing us to use it.

Nous avons passé un fort beau séjour dans le studio très très propre de Paul et Vanessa. Le studio est joli, l’équipement complet, les terrasses ont une vue magnifique. Déjeuner sur la terrasse ensoleillée puis traverser le pont pour visiter Porto et revenir souper parce qu’aucun restaurant n’offre une vue pareille sur Porto qui est a 0,5 km, voila les possibilités qu’offrent cet appartement. Sans compter l’aide chaleureuse de Paul et Vanessa qui sont des hôtes prévenants mais discrets. Nous le conseillerons vivement et y reviendrons sûrement lors d’un prochain voyage.
We had a wonderful at Paul and Vanessa’s studio. The apartment is new, well organized and has a wonderful terrrace overlooking Porto where we had supper every evening, no other restaurant has such a beautiful view. Paul and Vanessa are impecable hosts. We highly recommend the studio and will come back on our next trip to Porto. Carl and Line, Quebec
