Wonderful house near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We (family of five plus a Border Collie) have been at this house for one week. The house was very comfortable, you will not miss anything. Backyard was also ok and nice. The area offers lots of things to do, you can follow owner´s advice visiting places described in the notebook you will get at you arrival, it is a good selection.

We all had a great time at this wonderful familyfriendly house. We will repeat in the future.

Thank you very much !!!

Sehr schönes, komplett ausgestattetes Haus

  • 4 of 5

Im Oktober 2016 sind wir mit 3 Ehepaaren dort gewesen. Die Buchung und die Vorabkontakte mit Frau Rosado waren völlig problemlos. Vielen Dank Frau Rosado für ihre herzliche Begrüssung und Erklärungen zum Haus. Das Haus war für uns von der Größe her völlig ausreichend. Die Einrichtungen sind gemütlich, in der Küche fehlt es an nichts. Für eine 7. oder 8. Person ist das mit Zusatzbetten ausgestattete Zimmer doch eher zu klein. Wir haben ein sehr feuchtes Klima angetroffen. Ohne Zusatzheizung ist dann das ganze Haus klamm, Handtücher trocknen nicht. Der Preis für die Zusatzheizung von 150 € für eine Woche ist doch recht hoch bemessen.

Das Haus liegt in einer ruhigen Gegend. Zu dieser Zeit waren bereits viele benachbarte Häuser leerstehend. Ein kleiner Supermarkt ist fussläufig zu erreichen (ca. 200 m), der Sandstrand ist schön. Einziger Wermutstropfen: Kollektives, oft stundenlanges Wachhundegebell in der Nacht. Dennoch: Wir empfehlen dieses Haus gerne weiter und würden es auch ein weiteres Mal buchen.

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für Ihre nette Bewertung über unser schönes Apple Haus und Umgebung, und es freut uns dass es Ihnen bei uns so gut gefallen hat. Danke auch für Ihre Kommentare, und hierzu erklären wir gerne : die 7.und 8. Betten sind nur für eine Kinderbesetzung gedacht und die entsprechende Bettmessungen sind bei Fewo zu lesen. Da wir die nicht die Möglichkeit bei Fewo haben, das Haus für 4 Erwachsene und 4 Kinder anzubieten, informieren wir interessierte Kunden sofort bei Reservierungsanfrage je nach Gruppenzusammenstellung - wie es bei Ihnen auch der Fall gewesen ist - über die etwas kleinere Betten. Ich hatte Ihnen wegen dem feuchten Klima - der sich ab Oktober in Sintra merken lässt - die Zentralheizung angeboten und empfohlen, und der Preis von 150€ entspricht dem Einkaufspreis von Gas für 1 Woche, welcher in Portugal leider sehr hoch ist. Die Heizung dient dazu das Haus auf einer angenehme Temperatur zu halten und die Handtücher in den Bäder auf den dazu geeigneten Handtuchheizkörper zu trocknen. Wir haben nun entschieden, dass für kommende Reservierungen während der Regenzeit und Winter , die Zentralheizung immer inklusive ist. Manchmal, je nach Wetterbedingungen, kann man ein kollektives Hundegebell in der Ferne hören. Wir haben jedoch Kunden die jedes Jahr dieses Haus wieder buchen, und vielleicht nicht so empfindlich sind oder mehr Glück haben. Wir hoffen dass Sie ein nächstes Mal zu einer wärmeren und auch trockneren Zeit kommen können um noch vom herrlichen Garten, Grill und Terrasse im Haus , und natürlich auch schöne Strände zu profitieren !

Una feliz semana en Praia das Maças

  • 5 of 5

Acabamos de realizar una estancia en Praia das Maças y hemos estado muy confortables en la casa donde nos hemos hospedado: habitaciones amplias, una cocina bien equipada, un comedor salon muy acogedor., un jardin bonito y amigable, posibilidad de hacer barbacoa, tranquilidad por la noche.

También hemos utilizado un servicio de comida a domicilio que nos pareció muy bien cocinado y presentado.

En resumen, una experiencia inolvidable y muy recomendable, sobretodo si se va en grupo o en familia numerosa.¡¡

Superbe location au calme

  • 4 of 5

Maison très propre avec tout le nécessaire possible.

Calme proche océan. Accueil de Mme Rosa rio irréprochable.

Nous étions 8 4 adultes 4 enfants. La seule petite chose que l on puisse reprocher c est l unique chambre pour les 4 petits....une chambre de plus aurait été l idéal.

Le jardin est parfait et clôturé. C est un endroit idéal pour visiter la côte lisboete si on est adepte des petites stations balnéaires. Par contre attention en plein mois d août c est galère pour se déplacer en voiture !

Sehr schönes und gemütliches Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Mai 2 Wochen mit 2 kleinen Kindern (1 und 3) im Apple House verbracht und sehr genossen. Schon vorab war der Kontakt sehr herzlich und hilfreich. So wurden wir auch von Margarida empfangen. Sie hat uns alles rund ums Haus erklärt und uns sogar für den ersten Einkauf mit zum Supermarkt genommen. Im Mai war das Haus sehr kalt, allerdings hat es Zentralheizung, die wir angemacht haben so wie Heizlüfter zum schnellen aufheizen.

Das Haus war sehr sauber und die Zimmer geschmackvoll eingerichtet, mit allem was man braucht. Der Garten ist wunderschön und war ohne Pool perfekt für unsere kleinen Kinder. Nur ein paar Minuten entfernt ist ein kleines Lebensmittelgeschäft in dem man alles bekommt. Der Strand und diverse Restaurants sind fußläufig zu erreichen. Wir würden dieses Haus für Familien weiter empfehlen.
