Just for fun: 5 Insane Airbnbs around Porto

While scrolling on Airbnb looking for budget options in Porto, I couldn’t help clicking on some pretty insane residences and listings along the way. Though these were all way out of the budget I set for my recent post, 6 Airbnbs for 100 Euro or Less per Night, I couldn’t let these amazing finds go to waste and so, just for fun, I am putting them here into a blog post I’m calling5 Insane Airbnbs around Porto“.

While these Airbnbs may be out of peoples ideal Airbnb price-range I’m eager to hear thoughts and stories from anyone who booked one of these. To be fair, many of these listings are around Porto and not directly in the city-center but, if you’re booking one of these beautiful places you’ve probably rented a car or you just plan on lounging around in your upscaled bnb property — either way, no judgement here.

If this post goes well, I’ve also got some pretty interesting bookmarks in Douro that is sure to make for another fun blogpost. Perhaps, ‘Top 5 Insane Airbnbs in Douro’. But for now let’s dive into Porto.

1. Mouzinho 18 by YoursPorto

Starting it off with a bit more of a practical one — If you’re traveling with a group of up to 8 people, then the Wonderful 3 Bedroom Apartment hosted by YoursPorto might just be the perfect fit for you. With 3 bedrooms, 5 beds, and 2.5 baths, this spacious apartment can comfortably accommodate a large group. And the best part? Despite its size, the price per night is very reasonable, making it a great value for money.

These apartments are located in a fully renovated building, which still retains its original elements and retro/vintage features, giving it a unique charm that reflects the history of Porto. The high ceilings and abundant natural light create a bright and airy atmosphere, and the privileged location just 2 minutes from the riverside of Porto makes it convenient to explore the city. Take note that this listing actually regards two apartments with the same features, size, and address, but with distinct decorations. However, both apartments are amazing! If you have a preference about the decoration, just let the hosts know, and they will do their best to meet your desires.
