Beautiful large villa
Such a beautiful villa with a beautiful pool and a fabulous view. The owner was fantastic and very friendly, when we had a small electrical issue she was round within ten minutes to sort it, followed by some lovely cucumbers from the allotment . Whilst she was there she gave us some information about the area and where to go. A welcome pack of bread milk red and white wine, ham and cheese was delightful. Just what we needed. The property was very well equipped. All bedrooms were comfortable and cool, showers were very good. Good hairdryers. The outside area was lovely with lemons and lime trees which you were able to use. The pool was perfect on a warm day which the children and adults all enjoyed. We did not use the upstairs lounge as we spent our time in the downstairs kitchen area, which was spacious enough for 9 people. We highly recommend and will definitely be returning in the future. Loved it thank you very much
Lovely place, great landlord
The landlord is very friendly and always willing to help with whatever you need. Additional bed for arriving guest as ready on the next day. The house was big, enough space for any company wheather you are with children or just adults.
Lovely property, lots of room, great views of the lagoon
Just spent 2 weeks at this lovely property. Kids loved it. Well furnished, large rooms, clean and new. Great pool. Lots to do in the area, recommend the orchard visit in particular. Lots of beaches, bars, water activities nearby.
Great place for the family
Villa as expected, loads of space and every facility. Very friendly welcome.The pool was great and enjoyed by all, especially the children. Some of the furniture is a bit tired and the showers cold for a couple of days (there seems to be a total reliance on solar power for the hot water) but this did not detract from an otherwise lovely experience.
Nice house but holiday marred by issues described below..
House booked Jun 2017 for 2018 family holiday for 5 adult couples, 2 children 7, 4 & a baby. House marketed as having 5 double beds &1 twin bed + a cot. (Ad changed mid-Aug 2018 to 4 double beds & 2 twin bedrooms.) On arrival 27 Jul we found 4 double beds and 2 twin rooms. The owner just shrugged her shoulders and said they had changed the arrangements. We should have been told of the changes to the contract arrangements beforehand to allow us to cancel the booking.
The infinity pool covers nearly all the grounds. The pool had not been topped up; the pool features had not been re-activated.
All 10 bedside lights and a desk table lamp were electrically dangerous, non-CE Chinese imports. I had 5 x 220v electric shocks making them safe. The owner’s husband agreed they were unsafe; he asked me what I wanted him to do about them! My wife & I spent parts of 3 days in Caldas da Raihna Council Offices with juridical staff to try to ensure the safety issues are corrected before house is let again. I have asked the owner for a copy of the 'rental safety certificate' mandated by the Portuguese government but my request has been ignored.
There are 2 open fires with bedrooms adjacent but no smoke alarms. One bathroom has an internal window opening into the boiler room; there is no Carbon Monoxide monitor. Many of the rooms can only be ventilated by leaving the French doors open.
Some fixtures and fittings were loose or broken. The stair and passage-way walls were marked up to 1 m high with black scuff marks. The ‘beach towels’ (extra cost) were standard bath towels rather than larger beach towels. The extremely slow, free WiFi stopped day 2 and was off for 3 days.
The electric gates are fob controlled. When the owner gave me the fob she did not explain that they shut automatically and there is no safety obstruction detection system. The gates closed on our car and caused costly damage 28 Jul. I told the owner by sms within 30 mins and asked how to keep the gates open. I gained no response & phone calls were unanswered (not unusual). Agent later tried to claim that they were not told until 02 Aug. Owner’s husband accepted liability but owner has so far refused to pay for the repairs.
The gardener, the pool man and the person who reset the boiler thermostat so that we had hot water let themselves into the property without prior notice or agreement while we were absent from the property.
This is our 4th time to Foz, each time we get a villa nearer the beach and restaurants, and this one was perfectly positioned. We were travelling as 2 families with 5 children aged 7 through to 14! It worked perfectly, enough space ( we didn't even use 1 bedroom, the second lounge or second kitchen!!)
The layout of having rooms down stairs meant that the older kids had space, the kitchen leading on to the BBQ area and pool was just what we needed( something that had been missing on other villas). The Pool... WOW the biggest yet that we have had and so was the space round it. Add to this the lovely owners and how spotlessly clean it was a great holiday! We will book again!
