    We spent 6 days in early March of 2014 exploring Lisbon with Laurel Lightness as our home base and our only regret is that we did not allow more time to stay longer. The apartment proved to be everything we had hoped for based on the pictures and descriptions that we saw. The kitchen was very well equipped, the bed was quite comfortable, the shower was great and the whole apartment was sunny and clean. The owner, Glenn Cooper, was extremely responsive and accommodating as we made our plans over the Internet for our visit and proved to be a great host upon our arrival.

    The location was perfect for exploring all the beautiful historic sights and nearby restaurants. Just a short walk from the apartment is the Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara. The park’s outdoor café and spectacular view were an especially nice treat after a busy day of sightseeing.
    We would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family as an ideal place to stay when visiting this beautiful city.

    I stayed here with my girlfriend and two best friends for four days and it really could not have been better. We were all very comfortable and it served as a perfect home base for exploring Lisbon. The flat is nicely furnished, clean, and has all the comforts you would hope for in a vacation spot. Glenn really could not have been more helpful and gave us great advice. The location is perfect as it is quiet at night but right up the street from an array of small bars and restaurants that come alive after dark. I have stayed at a number of places through airbnb and this was by far my best experience thus far.

    Glenn was really really helpful! The apartment was as expected, really charming, well located and perfect furnished!! We can’t hear the noise from the street even of it’s really closed to the bars and restaurant ! I totally recommend it and quil book it again if I go back to Lisbonne ! Glenn thank you so much again !!!

    Laurel Lightness was the perfect apartment for discovering the flavor and life of Lisbon. The location in the Bairro Alto has less of a tourist feel than if we had stayed in a hotel in the busier parts of the city but be ready to do some hill climbing and walking. As Glenn said, there are only two directions in Lisbon, up and down.

    The apartment was perfect! It is charming, colorful, and has so many touches like the Portuguese tiles and all the amenities one could think of. The washer/dryer was great. Thanks, Glenn, for everything including keeping in touch and making sure everything was just right for our stay. I can see why you love Lisbon.

    We were lucky enough to rent this apartment in February 2014. While the weather wasn’t cooperative, Glenn Cooper certainly was. From meeting us upon our arrival, giving us lots of advice on things to do and places to go, to extending our visit after our planned seven days, he was concerned, attentive and charming. The apartment had everything we needed and was in a great location for sightseeing, restaurants, etc. We even got used to eating later than our usual North American dinner time, as the restaurants didn’t open until 8 pm or later!! The apartment was quiet, compact, beautifully decorated, and the bed was superbly comfortable. We also rented Glenn’s apartment in Paris, and were equally impressed. Well done, Glenn. You have worked hard to build a wonderful business. I’m sure we’ll be in touch again, and will be happy to recommend either of these apartments to friends.

    We enjoyed our stay in Laurel Lightness. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well. As usual in Lisbon we walked a lot and explored some new areas. Thanks to Glenn for showing us in and welcoming us. Staying in an apartment gives the flavour of the city much better than staying in a hotel in the tourist districts.

    I just completed a four city a solo jaunt through Portugal and Spain staying in rental apartments at every stop. Laurel Lightness was by far the best equiped and most comfortable of them all. To top it off Glen was a superior host. Always available by email before and during my stay, answered all my questions and gave great advice. Lisbon is a lovely city, easy to get around. Great people, great food, great wine. The apartment is perfectly located. I have to say that all of the nice comments I’ve read on Laurel Lightness and Glen are absolutely true. As Arnold says, “I’ll be back”…

    I stayed at Laurel Lightness with two friends in September. The apartment was spotless, totally furnished and in a great neighborhood. I can not say enough about Glenn as a landlord and host. He was helpful, informative, readily available but not intrusive in any way. When I left for my flight back to the US, I inadvertently left behind a bag containing several items I had purchased as gifts for my family and friends. I called Glenn from the airport and he retrieved the bag and had it Fed Ex’ed to me. I’m sure this wasn’t easy for him–finding the Fed Ex office in Lisbon, packing the bag, etc. He went above and beyond and my daughter and I thank him from the bottoms of our hearts (most of the gifts were for her). I would recommend Laurel Lightness and Glenn as host without reservation and certainly would email Glenn if our future travel plans call for a visit to Paris.
    Once again, thank you Glenn!

    Laurel Lightness is a lovely apartment in a perfect location–not far from many of the main sites in Lisbon and close to restaurants and shopping. It’s a nice size, clean and has everything needed for a vacation stay. Glenn met me at the apartment to show me around and also gave me lots of good information about Lisbon. I stayed at many of his apartments in Paris and this one met my expectations, as always. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a place to stay in Lisbon.

    We enjoyed our Christmas holiday 2014 in Glenn’s apartment with four persons. Glenn welcomed us and gave a detailed introduction in the use of the apartment facilities. He further gave a lot useful information about restaurants and interesting places. He is a realy good host much caring about his guests to assure a perfect stay in Lisbon. The apartment is good equipped and did not miss anything. We would recommend this apartment as we would rent it again once we come back to Lissabon.
    Thanks Glenn

    Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Lisbonne. L’appartement est très bien situé, dans le Bairro Alto (quartier typique et festif), à deux pas des ruelles animées et des différents quartiers du centre, mais dans une ruelle très calme.
    Appartement propre et bien aménagé, mais petit (comme le sont apparemment la plupart des logements dans le vieux Lisbonne).
    Salles-de-bains confortables mais étroites. Il est suggéré d’ajouter des patères pour accrocher les vêtements.

    Excellent pour un séjour découverte de Lisbonne.Emplacement , propreté, équipement…..à conseiller sans retenue.

  13. Favereau Brigitte

    L’appartement est très bien situé, très propre, cosy et bien equipé.La literie est d’excellente qualité. Nous étions 4 adultes et avons beaucoup apprecié la présence de 2 salles de bain.
    Juste une petite remarque: nous mangions à l’appart 1 fois par jour et avons manqué de vaisselle (plats, grand saladier …..) et avons deploré la présence de seulement 1 torchon….
    Glenn est un proprio très sympa aux petits soins pour les locataires même à distance.
    Merci Glenn
