myhomeinporto is not a hotel, but a guesthouse with 3 beautiful bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. Juan lives in the house in a private apartment, and he use to be around everyday. It’s a quiet spot so parties are not allowed unless the entire house is rented.

BREAKFASTS. Every day from 09:00 breakfast is served in the dining room or in the garden. If you need to have it earlier we can serve it from 08:00 on if needed, but there are several things that we prepare every day and need some time to be done, so earlier breakfasts are not possible.
Breakfast changes every day, but we use to serve yogurt with fresh fruit, butter and home-made jams, fresh squeezed juices, milk, home-made cakes, fresh breads and/or toasts and some savory products (eggs, cheese, ham, tomato, salmon, …). If you have any special request, or any allergy, please let us know so we can adapt your breakfast to your needs.

CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE. Every day before 16:00 we will access your bedroom for a basic housekeeping. This service doesn’t include change of linen or towels. A deeper clean with change of linen and towels is included in the price for stays longer than 7 days. If you need additional cleaning services please let us know. Also if you need towels to be changed, you can leave them on the floor.

INTERNET WIFI ACCESS. There’s a good Internet access in all the house and garden. We will provide you the access code upon arrival.

DOGS. You can bring your dog with you if small and well behavior. There will be an extra 150,00 € security deposit to be paid upon arrival that will be returned at the end of your stay after checking there has not been any damage. Please notice not many places in Porto allow dogs to come in, and dogs must have their lash on in most of the beaches around.

SMOKING. If you are a smoker you should smoke in the garden, as smoking is not allowed inside the house.

TELEVISION AND MUSIC. There is no television at myhomeinporto; and we don’t have any background music in the house, but Juan loves it and there is a record player in the library so some days we play music while sunset or during dinner with guests or friends. We ask guests to take in consideration there are other guests staying in the house and in case they would like to play music on their bedrooms not to play it loud so it is not uncomfortable for others.
